Pre-built components

Get up and running quickly with our easily embeddable components that enable users to select, save, or embed content from and to Dropbox.

  • Chooser

    The Chooser is the fastest way to get files from Dropbox into your web, Android, or iOS app. It's a small component that enables your app to get files from Dropbox without having to worry about the complexities of implementing a file browser, authentication, or managing uploads and storage.

    The Saver is the easiest way to add files to your users' Dropbox accounts. With two clicks, a user can download files of any size into their Dropbox, making those files available on all their computers and devices as soon as the download completes. The Saver works on web and mobile web—all with just a few lines of code.
