    I'm trying to set up Dropbox on my phone in order to automate some actions, but I'm having trouble with one step. Primarily, I'd like for Dropbox to be main download location for files from Dolphin, Steel, and Browser. I can't find an easy way to make this happen, and it would be awesome if I could get it to work out.

    Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this!

    I have the same question. Most of the files I download on the phone are going to eventually be transferred to my computer, so changing the default download folder from 'sdcard/download' to 'sdcard/dropbox/download' would save me from having to manually move the files using a file manager.

    I haven't found a solution to this yet, and I've actually stopped trying. I know Dolphin was just updated, but I haven't bothered trying to figure out Steel again because it hasn't been updated in what seems like forever.

    I'm not giving up hope; I'm just not optimistic.

    I believe you can approach this from the other side and change the location that Dropbox uses to the download directory. I know it works that way on the PC version, I don't have it on my phone so can't say for sure that it works the same way - but I suspect it does.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but I'm interested in hearing more about this. I just looked at the Dropbox app on my phone, and there doesn't appear to be any way to change those folders.

    Thanks for sharing any more info!

    Yep, you're right - I just installed the dropbox app (just for you :) ) and looked, there doesn't appear to be a way to change it's default directory. Well, it was a thought - just not a good one...
