I was wondering if it is possible to use a the ruby dropbox API to access and download publically shared files without authentication?
You can do that from the web as long as you have the URL but I could not find any way to make this possible inside my app.
Any help on how I can make this work will be appreciated !

Your answer is correct, it is me who is faulty.
It seems the dl=1 solution is not a direct link but when requested it sends a response with the direct link.
I had to work this over with ruby so I can tell ruby to get the request and THEN use it as download source.
Thank you for the help and dedication!
