We recently integrated Dropbox into our Jolicloud Desktop and we are delighted to see that so many of you are enjoying it!
How to set up your Dropbox
First you need to link your Dropbox to your Jolicloud. Just click “Link to my Dropbox” as you see on the screenshot below and then “Add” the Dropbox service. You will be redirected to the Dropbox website in order to authorize the Jolicloud app. Log into your Dropbox account or create one and get 2GB of free online storage. Once the connection is granted, you are redirected back to Jolicloud.
Access your Dropbox files
As soon as you are connected to Dropbox, your files will appear in the File Browser. You can browse documents, check their details and launch them directly from your Jolicloud Desktop. For more advanced features like file renaming, we facilitate the access to the Dropbox website.
Some media files like music, photos and videos can be accessed directly inside Jolicloud. This feature depends on the HTML5 audio and video codecs installed in your browser. If you are using Joli OS, make sure to install the HTML5 Video add-on to preview media files.
We hope you will enjoy the easy access to your Dropbox content from the Jolicloud Desktop. We are looking forward to hearing your feedback on how we could improve this integration and what services should be added next. Stay tuned for more announcements on this!
Using Chrome? Don’t forget you can install the Jolicloud app from the Chrome Web Store!
