the API needs two things from you and/or dropbox.
1. Dropbox does not allow to get access to the full filesystem. It's only allowed to work with one or more applications in the users dropbox. This means someone has to create a dropbox application as a developer at the dropbox site. After this the developer
will get an application key and an application secret. This components has to be integrated into the application which should use this part of your dropbox. During the first login, a relation ship with this application will be generated for the user and a
sandbox folder will be created (in the users dropbox)!
I created one testapplication for public use with the folling data:
If you have this information, no registration at dropbox developer is not, otherwise do it.
2. Every User has a username and password for his own drop box, this is needed the get access to the users dropbox in the application sandbox folder which was created through the authorization process
