Drop2sync has been discontinued
We’re sorry to tell you that drop2sync has been discontinued and is no longer available in the NOOK Shop. Dropbox has changed their API (the interface that other applications use to get access to files on Dropbox) and the current version of drop2sync will no longer work with Dropbox on December 1, 2012. Since there are now free apps for both Dropbox and Box on the NOOK, drop2sync sales have dropped off to 1-2 copies per day. This says to us that drop2sync is no longer needed now that the free apps are available. At that sales rate, we can’t afford to rewrite the app to conform to the new Dropbox interface.
UPDATE: (September 28, 2012): We just received an email today that Box.com is changing their interface in a way that’s incompatible with drop2sync on October 4! So it looks like Box users will need to use the free Box.com NOOK app. We are quite distressed to give users so little notice! It’s sad that Box waited until the last minute to tell us their plans.
We recommend that you immediately download and begin using either or both of these apps on your your NOOK device:
When we released drop2sync a year ago, it enabled new functionality and convenience for an otherwise great wireless device. But unlike Dropbox and Box, we can’t afford to develop free apps and still pay the bills. For those of you who will miss the special features of drop2sync, we’re sorry. We’ll miss them too. 🙁 You guys are great! We hope you’ll enjoy our upcoming apps (or maybe our existing ones) on your NOOK device.
