    How can I use DropBox for syncing different apps but still keep the content in different apps separate? :confused:

    You don't sync with dropbox. Just for data and file storage

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    What does this even mean? Syncing apps across multiple machines doesn't have anything to do with data sharing between one app or another.

    OK, sorry, I'm clearly not making sense.

    I have a pdf annotation app on my iPad. At regular intervals, I sync (the function is called 'sync' in the app) with Drop Box, so that the latest changes I've made to documents are backed up.

    Several of my other apps also offer to sync with Drop Box. However, in those apps (e.g. for those with photos or notes), I would want them to 'sync' the pdf files. So I'm wondering what people do if they use dropbox for several apps at the same time.

    Is that clearer?

    I use Dropbox for multiple apps. I put things in folders. Won't that work for you?

    Thanks, that's great. So I'm going to test that out.
