Last November, we launched the Chooser as a quick way to integrate Dropbox into your apps. Today, we’re launching the Chooser for iOS and Android. For the first time, users will be able to bring their files into your mobile app directly from Dropbox.
The Chooser works across platforms and provides a simple and clean interface for users to select files so you don't have to build your own from scratch.
You can generate preview URLs or direct links to files. This allows you to decide whether you'd like to rely on Dropbox to host files or manage file hosting on your own.
Apps are only granted access to files that users explicitly choose, and users don't have to go through cumbersome OAuth flows.
We're thrilled that companies and teams of all sizes have already integrated the Chooser into their iOS and Android apps, including Yahoo! Mail, Mailbox, TextMe, Asana, do.com, Pic Stitch, Boxer, Mosaic.io, and Simple.
"Using Dropbox's new Chooser SDK, in just three hours we built a new feature that lets our customers seamlessly attach a PDF or image to transactions in Simple for iPhone."
