iWork on the iPad is pretty good, but its biggest missing feature? A lack of Dropbox integration. As tech blog TechInch has discovered, this can be fixed pretty easily. Using previously mentioned DropDAV — a service that enables WebDAV access to your Dropbox account — you can add your Dropbox account as a WebDAV share and effortlessly sync your iWork documents.
These are the basics steps:
- Get a Dropbox account if you don’t have one already (free for 2GB plus extra space that you gain from referrals).
- Sign up for DropDAV (free if you have a Dropbox free account, otherwise it costs a few bucks).
- Add your DropDAV share to iWork on your iPad.
- Copy documents to and from your DropDAV as needed.
It’s not a perfect solution but it’s definitely better than no Dropbox integration. For the full instructions, hit up the post over at TechInch.
