For those that are still interested, I found an iPhone app that I'm using to listen to music with dropbox.
I tried a bunch of them and they were all fairly poor and then I found one that was not bad. It's called MusiCloud
It does everything that I had wished dropbox would do. It lets you make playlists, jump to the previous and next song, store a selection of songs locally so you're not killing your bandwidth. It even attempts to match up your songs with album art from online. It has not ever gotten the correct art for my albums but I almost find it extremely endearing the completely wrong selections that it makes.
Is it perfect, no. Is it free, yes, but the free version had a lot of intrusive ads that irritated me so I paid the 1.99 for the Pro version.
I have no connection to this piece of software and I get no benefit from this post. I simply want to say that there is a solution that will let you listen to music from dropbox and gives you exactly the sort of functionality that dropbox should be providing its users by default.

This is a terrible response.
People, many, are using dropbox to listen to music. It's a far better solution that iTunes. This dismissive response shows a lack of fundamental marketing intelligence.
Your customers want playlists and have been asking for years.
They ARE using your app to listen to music. You can pretend or insist they are not, but they are. (My primary reason for getting a paid account was that my LARGE music files made me grow beyond the basic account size. Had I not used you for music and audio I'd still be a free user.)
There are other (bad) solutions on the web to create playlists for dropbox because you have refused to. http://www.online-playlist.com
Why not embrace your customer feedback and make ANY solution to handle this.
It could be as simple as allowing users to make a text file with a specific extension that listed the files names they want in a list.
Or if you are feeling fancy, add an option under the multiple file select menu that said: "Play all" and supported a swipe right and left while playing to skip forward and back.
My point is STOP TELLING PEOPLE THEY DON"T WANT WHAT THEY WANT and please LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.
