We all know and love Dropbox cloud storage service right? We have already covered Dropbox extensively here and in the past also mentioned many hacks, tips & tricks to make most of it. If you also happen to be the owner of an iOS device such as iPhone then don’t forget to download the Dropbox client for iPhone! This official client for Dropbox although nice does have some serious limitations. For example, it only allows to upload media files such as images and videos to your online Dropbox account. You are not allowed to upload anything else from these files.
However, if you happen to be a proud owner of jailbroken iPhone or willing to follow out step-by-step guide to do so then you are in for a treat! This is because we have very useful Cydia tweak called FullDrop. This app allows you to fully access your Dropbox account from your iPhone. With FullDrop, you can upload and download ANY types of file, right from/to your iPhone. The downloaded and to be uploaded files go to /Applications/Documents/FullDrop in the device’s file system. A tiny file viewer and a place (the Dropbox homepage) is also included to enable you to grab the public link for your file.
These are the improvements that are promised to come in future version of the application:
- Enable swipe to delete for remote files (local files already implemented)
- Generate public link, just like the official app.
- Make graphics a bit smoother when necessary
- Enable folder navigation/full file system access for local files (right now the app only sees /Applications/Documents/FullDrop and doesn’t distinct between files/directories, only for remote files), not to force the user to copy over his files. IMPLEMENTED in v1.1
You need to add the following repository to http://meisterdon.myrepospace.com/ to your Cydia Sources to download and install this application. BTW this is a free application!
