You can use the hopTo iPad app to access and edit documents that are stored on your Dropbox

  1. Login to the hopTo app. In the 'My Cloud' section tap the 'Add' button

  3. In the next screen you get to enter your Dropbox credentials to allow the hopTo app to access your Dropbox documents

    Note that we do not store or save your password. We receive an access token from Dropbox which we use to gain access to your account so that your personal information is always secure and not compromised.

    The next step would be to grant the hopTo app access to your Dropbox folder. Click 'Allow' to authorize

    Note that if you already have the Dropbox app installed on your iPad and you are logged into it (linked), you may only see this second authorization step without having to provide your Dropbox credentials.

  4. Dropbox now appears green with a check next to it to designate it is now a connected file source for hopTo.

  5. You are all set! You can now see the Dropbox icon under the 'My Cloud' section and your Dropbox documents are available in the 'My Documents' area.
