    I have a 2014 rMBP, iPad air 2, and iPhone 6 all with current OS, not betas.

    I understand that Handoff requires iCloud drive to be enabled , but do the files actually have to be on the iCloud drive? I'd prefer to use Dropbox and just have iCloud drive enabled for all devices.

    Can handoff be used with files in Dropbox?

    You can't open files in Pages directly from Dropbox, so I guess it won't work. Dropbox didn't implement the required extension services yet.
    But maybe Handoff works… I'll leave the question to someone more informed.
