When I tap + from the destination folder the only files I can choose are pictures and media type files. I'm trying to upload apps.

Hi @FRUSTRATED24_7, thanks for reaching out!

Are you referring to uploading files from the Dropbox mobile app on your phone/tablet?

If so, it's not currently possible to upload other apps to your Dropbox account via the mobile app.

Is there a particular reason you'd like to do this? Perhaps to backup data from the app to your account?

Let me know and we can go from there!

No, im trying tomove stuff from a phone i was using for gaming to a kindle. The android apps will run on it if i can get them installed since the fire o.s. is android based I'm told, but i cant download anything from google play because Amazon only wants us to use their app store and apps.

As @Daphne said you cannot do this - its not possible to upload apps from mobile devices to other ones via Dropbox for the obvious copyright reasons.
