Hey @-o, can you elaborate a bit on that for me please? What would be the ideal end result if you don’t mind me asking? Would you like to open the files you’ve stored in Dropbox or is it something else that you wish to achieve?
 
Any detail &/or visual aid you could include on this discussion would be very helpful (omitting personal info please) & rest assured that I’m here to guide you on this in any way I can on my end. Thanks in advance!

Hey there @-o

At first, if you're trying to store files into your Dropbox account, you can simply add them using the website/desktop app or the mobile app

If you want to be able to view and delete files in your Dropbox account using another third party app though, you'll have to contact them for more info as they may be able to provide you with more relevant steps.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to give us a nudge. Thanks!

@-o Dropbox does offer an API you can use for listing, uploading, and downloading files, among other operations. You can find everything you need to get started with the Dropbox API, including documentation, tutorials, and SDKs here:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers

For example, to upload files you can use /2/files/upload, to download files you would use /2/files/download, and to deleted files you can use /2/files/delete_v2. Those are links to the documentation for the HTTPS endpoints themselves, but we recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible. Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints. 

There's also a Getting Started guide that may be helpful.
