I have a Dropbox account, and an iPad. How do I sync the Dropbox account to a native folder on the iPad so that I don't have to manually open the Dropbox app to open/edit a file, find attachments for emails, etc.?
Unless you jailbreak your device, you don't have direct access to the file system on iOS. I think you should continue to use the Dropbox App to access your files.
If you want an jailbroken alternative, I let someone else answer because I'm not an jailbreak expert :-)
Hope this helps !
