While Dropbox may be able to hold and store the file so you can see it on your iPhone, the iPhone itself cannot open all file types. Your best option is to visit Dropbox on a computer and then try to open the file.

Hope that helps!

I need to transfer music from iPod touch to iPhone SE but I do not have a computer. Help!

There are plenty of cloud service apps in the App Store, and some of them support to sync media files. With a cloud service app, you can transfer music from iPod touch to iPhone. Dropbox is regarded as one of the most popular cloud apps among iPhone and iPad users, and it provides 2GB for free use, so you can sync the songs from iPod touch to the cloud service, and enjoy them on iPhone.
  1. Download and install Dropbox on iPod touch. Register an account and log in.
  2. Click Add Files, and select the songs you want to transfer. Then click Upload.
  3. Install Dropbox on iPhone as well, and log in with the same account. Then wait until the songs show up in the Dropbox folder.
  4. You can listen to the songs with the Open in function in Dropbox to listen to the songs, or download the songs to your iPhone so that you can enjoy them anytime you need.

Just navigate in safari to any streaming mp3 file (like on seeqpod) and play it so it will be in your browsers history, then close safari and open HistoryDL, and touch the most recent(top) line in the list (it may look blank) and hit the download button. Then just wait, when the button lightens back to its normal grey color the mp3 is downloaded (in to the ebooks folder). Then open MNPlight and go to import, and type in the path to the mp3 (Var/Root/Media/EBooks) and import the mp3 to the iPhone and play as normal without syncing with iTunes.

Hope this helps.

Dropbox - Leave your USB at home

Have you ever saved your work onto your USB memeory stick to take to your next location, only to forget it and be stuck in a pickle? <br /><br />With Dropbox you won't have to worry about leaving your files at home or at work anymore.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Dropbox</span> - <a href=""></a><br /><br />Any file you save to Dropbox also instantly saves to your computers, phones, and the Dropbox website. For example, I can write part of an essay using my home computer. This will instantly be uploaded to Dropbox if you download the program. Then when I get to school to finish it off I just have to download Dropbox onto the school computer or just login to my Dropbox account online and download the file.<br /><br />Dropbox also allows account sharing, whereby you can invite people to look at and download your files. This is extremely useful if you are sharing things like holiday photos with your family and friends. <br /><br />It is even available for use on your iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry phones so you have unlimited portability.<br /><br />Click the link below to register and download your Dropbox:<br /><a href=""></a><br /> <br />

When I download song or movie meg. Was display on my IPhone 4 safari can not download this file n I can not download anther browser . So help me to solve safari problem n easy to download all file. I buy...

By default, Safari does not allow you to download files to your device, this is the same for other browsers. One solution is to jailbreak your iPhone 4, and then install Safari Download Manager from the Cydia store.
To jailbreak your iPhone:
  1. Ensure you are running firmware 4.2.1 or above (Settings>General>About)
  2. If not, then launch iTunes, click on your phone, and update the firmware.
  3. Download Greenpois0n from: (download links are on the right hand side)
  4. Extract and run the Greenpois0n.exe and follow the instruction very carefully.
  5. After your device has been jailbroken, open Cydia, and search for "Safari Download Manager"
  6. Pay the required amount and proceed with your download, it should automatically set up.
  7. Restart your phone to be safe, and you should now be able to download any file.

How can I download .exe files onto my iPad Safari keeps saying it cannot download file

.exe files are Microsoft Windows Executable files, that can only run on Microsoft Windows. They cannot be run on the iPad, so Safari doesn't download them.
The place to get apps for the iPad is the App Store - have a search, there'll probably be something that can do what you need. Out of interest, what are you trying to do? I may be able to suggest an app.
Hope that helped!
