Share an application folder with other users

Share an application folder with other users

I am writing an application that will have access ONLY to the application folder on a Dropbox account. I'd like a user to be able to share folders with others RUNNING THE SAME APPLICATION. The problem with the usual file sharing is that the shared folder is placed at the top level of the receiving users Dropbox folder. I'd like the share-ees to be able to access the shared folder from the common application, via their copy of the application. Is there any way to do this?

No, unfortunately there isn't a way to share the app folder across app users like this, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

Thanks Greg,

 
Specifically, sharing SUB folders of the application folder. Wouldn't want to turn all users of the app loose on the root folder.
