Looks like we have an item open on dropbox integration in the development database - folks that would like to see this added should email the [EMAIL=""]support ninjas[/EMAIL] so they can attach you to that item in the development database.

The number of folks requesting a given change is one of the items that we use when planning out our work; items with more customer interest behind them tend to happen more quickly. Thanks, everyone!

Thanks for the heads up. Just sent in my request!

Just emailed in to add myself to the list as well!

Great idea :)

Posted some relevant info in [URL=""]another thread[/URL] but forgot to link to it in this one:

[QUOTE=Brian;81304]DropBox is really great for syncing individual files around, but the way OmniFocus databases are set up - collections of files with a meaningful relationship between them - isn't handled as well. This isn't a criticism - their service just wasn't designed with files like ours in mind.

There is plenty of demand for this, and we're certainly considering it, but it's not going to be trivial to do...

I don't know how relevant it would be, but 1Password just added Dropbox syncing for their Mac, iPhone and iPad apps and it works great. You might look at how they do it and see if that would work for OF.
