Changes to Dropbox support (coming soon)

March 18, 2017

At the end of June 2017, Dropbox will be deprecating the (v1) APIs I use to interact with their service, i.e. listing folder contents, copying files to/from Dropbox … etc. I will therefore be making updates to each of my apps to migrate to their new (v2) APIs.

The main change is that they will no longer support a single app accessing both the root (top level) folder and the Apps (sub)folder, I would have to submit separate copies of my apps to support both. I have no plans to do this as it is overkill, so all users will be required to use the Apps folder instead. This is a much tidier way of organising your files, as a single Apps folder will contain sub-folders for each of your apps. It is the way to go!

There will be a little bit of disruption for users currently using Dropbox, especially those linked to the Root folder. More details will be posted when I migrate each app.

This change will also allow me to add Dropbox support to my Mac apps.
