    Hey guys - is there any way to get mp3s residing in my dropbox to the iPod within my iPad without syncing via desktop iTunes?

    No, there sure isn't. You can however play those songs from within Dropbox without having them on your device. If you "favorite" the songs, Dropbox will use a certain amount of storage on your device for caching to make them load faster.

    Not sure if GoodReader can do that but I wouldn't be surprised if it could...GoodReader IMO is one of the MUST HAVE iPad apps...what an AMAZING app it is especially for just $4.99...talk about Bang-For-The-Buck!

    Well, from what I read it was intended to be a multi-format pdf reader/downloader, but what interested me was it's ability to download video and audio files from iDisk, DropBox or basically any website directly to iPad...
    Then, once downloaded to GoodReader, the file can be assigned/opened to/by any available app that will play it...
    For example, this morning I download a tv show in a .mkv wrapper I had on my iDisk. After downloading it directly to the iPad2, I then transfered it to AVPlayerHD and was able to perfectly play the file...
    GoodReader can also wirelessly transfer files to and from any Mac or iOS device on your network...
    Oh, and it is an AMAZING PDF reader...
    GoodReader does MANY more things that I'm only now learning about as I just downloaded it yesterday after a good friend was raving about it...

    Cool, thanks.

    As of now, Terra, Dropbox and LogMeIn do all that for me just fine.
