Dropbox Chooser, integrating Dropbox in our applications

Today we have a wide variety of choices when it comes to keeping our cloud-stored files and thanks to Dropbox , Box, SkyDrive, Google Drive or Cubby has become very easy to have a warehouse for our files, pictures or videos (and made us easy to share resources with our friends).

If you are using your computer, the thing is pretty simple, but if we are using a shared computer or another person, we would have to “carry” the files or download from Dropbox for re-upload from the form.

With the idea of simplifying the process, Dropbox Dropbox Chooser developed with the idea that developers use it as an alternative to uploading a file to a web form or application. If the file you have to have it in Dropbox attach no sense to download it so reloading Dropbox team has developed a component that can attach directly link to the file in our personal storage space.

Once we click on the Dropbox Chooser button opens a window for us to validate the service (if they were previously) and displayed our wallets to sail by them and we may select the file to attach.
