How to share a file or folder with Dropbox for iOS

The Dropbox app for both iPhone and iPad not only stores all your files but lets you share them with people when and if you need to. From individual files to entire folders, you can easily create links to share content with someone. While it isn't the native sharing and collaborating option the Dropbox website gives you, it can at least get files to someone in a pinch quicker than getting to a computer.

Here's how to share a file or folder:

  2. Navigate to the file you'd like to share and tap into it.
  3. In the top navigation, tap on the share button in the upper right hand corner.
  4. Now choose the way you'd like to share the file. For this example, we will email the link.
  5. Dropbox will now launch you into the app you've chosen to share through or copy the link to your clipboard.
