Can iPad/iPhone and PC Share Dropbox Accounts?

On my iPad, does it have to have the same e-mail address and password as my computer for dropbox?

Thank you!

For those who don’t know, Dropbox is a cloud-based file hosting service where you can upload your documents, pictures, videos, music and other files to the cloud to share among devices.

You can sign up for a different Dropbox account if you like, but one of the fantastic features of Dropbox is the ability to share and sync information across devices and have access to files that you wouldn’t normally store on your iPad/iPhone/mobile device.

The iOS Dropbox app (available in the App Store for Free on iOS & iPad)  allows you to open files, play music from the cloud, view documents and even send files from your Dropbox via message or e-mail. This is a really fantastic feature which allows you to share documents on the go when away from your computer.

If you’re set on having a separate Dropbox account for your iPad click here to create a new account.
