How to export a file to another app on your phone or tablet

If you don't already have it, download the Dropbox mobile app for easier exporting.

To export a file from the Dropbox mobile app:

  1. Launch the Dropbox app.
  2. Tap (ellipsis) beside or under the file you'd like to export.
  3. Tap Export. A list of apps that can open the file will appear. Select the app you'd like to open the file.

Note: Once you export the file to another app, any changes to the file may not be saved back to your Dropbox unless the app specifically integrates with Dropbox.
