Enjoyed your bad doors video.
Have you or anyone here tried the teams API https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/teams does that allow shared apps folders amongst team users?
My objective is to allow multiple users read/write access to a folder to which an app also has access, without allowing the app access to a user´s entire dropbox. I believe that this is the objective of the majority of people on this thread.
So, whilst an App folder would be the logical place for that to happen, any viable workaround would be appreciated. Is it possible for an app to write to a team folder via the API?

I resolved this [for my purpose] by setting up a symbolic link within the App subdirectory of my dropbox folder to the shared directory in my main dropbox folder. I used mklink to create the link. Any changes to the shared directory are automatically linked to the directory within the restricted App folder. It is as if the restricted App folder is shared.
We use iStock and they have a feature to connect and upload directly to Dropbox... However only the 1 user can use this feature as photos are uploaded to their personal 'Apps' folder and we need the entire team to have access to these downloaded photos.
For this reason, I had to move my storage to another service (Box.com), even if it is slower and app access is less secure (full permissions).
