    A user just reported and I have just verified that the access permission is not being remembered between restarts of my app for new installs.

    When a user first enables Dropbox access in my app they are then taken to the Dropbox allow access web page where they grant permission for my app to access their Dropbox. In the past and on apps that have already been given access this works as expected. You can kill my app and restart it and you don't have to go back to the Dropbox permission page to grant access again.

    That has now changed for anyone doing a new install. The access grant is not being remembered if the app is killed (removed from running memory) and then restarted.

    I just tested the Android version of my app and it does not have this problem. You only need to grant access once.

    I am running B4i 2.00. With remote compile (which as been very flaky today with lots of com timeouts).

    Any ideas why this has suddenly stopped working?

    I thought it might be Dropbox but the Android version works fine. How is this access grant being remembered on the iOS device (iOS, B4i, Dropbox)?

    I'm not sure why it stopped working. However Dropbox have deprecated the sync api. So you do need to start looking for an alternative solution.

    This turned out to be my bug. While testing another feature I had accidentally commented out the Application_OpenURL module. That broke creating a new account link but if you had already link your account and then upgraded to this defective version everything would seem to be working. But if you installed fresh or uninstalled then reinstalled you would have a problem.
