TIP: Dropbox iOS app now supports Folder Bookmarks

Although Drafts has always had great integration directly with Dropbox APIs to support the creation and manipulation of files, some might find it interesting to know that Dropbox has updated their iOS app with full support for folders – which means that file scripting and actions using the “File” action step in Drafts can also now work with Dropbox-based files and folders through the use of Bookmarks.

The main case where this would be an advantage over the direct integration used in the existing “Dropbox” action step, is that these file-based actions can work offline – relying on the Dropbox app to sync at a later time when you re-connect.

I’ve updated the Dropbox integration guide to mention this option. For more details on setting up bookmarks and file-based actions, see the Bookmarks article in the User Guide:
