Dropbox v1 retired

Post by arrawlings » Mon Oct 16, 2017 2:58 am

I can no longer access Dropbox from mobile versions-my paid version or the free version. According to dropbox, they retired v1 of their API last month.

Any idea when this will be corrected?

Please see here:

There will be a new SoftMaker Office for Android next year that leaves old Android versions behind and will work with Dropbox again.

Note that this problem does not affect SoftMaker Office HD for Android which is compatible only with Android 4 and higher.
