    Will dropbox work with desktop mac or will the app only work on iphone and ipads, etc?

    A note of caution about DropBox . . . I have used it as well to share IBA files between locations . . . and have found that once in a while I will get "errors" when opening a file, mostly due to preview images missing, etc. I think it has something to do with a collision between IBA autosaving, and DropBox insisting on starting to sync a file as soon as there is any change. Whichever action is in effect must "lock" the file for a period of time, or overwrite changes written (or not yet written) from the other. At any rate . . . I don't get these errors when I don't work directly from a file in my DropBox folder. I only use DropBox to pass a file to someone else for editing by copying it into the DropBox, and then having the user copy or move it someplace out of DropBox while they work on it . . . and then move a copy back into the DropBox for me to pick up (and move out of the DropBox folder) later.

     

    If anyone knows more, let me know :-)
