Some Changes to Dropbox Public Folders

After July 31, Dropbox will no longer create Public folders in any new Dropbox accounts. Public folders in existing accounts, however, will continue to function as before.

Since TouchAppCreator is using Public folders to host public mobile web apps, you cannot use this options if your account is created after July 31. Alternatively, you can publish your apps to any Dropbox folders and share those folders to your users and finally your users can use TouchAppViewer (free app) to view your apps. Of course, you can still use your own hosting company's space to host public web apps.

Share your apps offline and privately

When you publish your web apps to Dropbox, you may experience slow performance when viewing via Safari or adding to Home Screen. Even you have your own hosting server, your audience cannot view apps when they are offline. If you just want to share your web apps to your friends without publishing them to public, there is no option for that. TouchAppViewer is going to solve this problem.

Now, you and your  audience can download TouchAppViewer app for free to view your web apps that created by TouchAppCreator. The process is very simple.

  1. You just upload your web apps to Dropbox folder using the latest version of TouchAppCreator as before. 
  2. If you choose folder that under Public folder, you will have public link and then you just send this link to your audience. 
  3. If you choose folder that is not under Public folder, you can share this folder to them. 
  4. Finally, they can use TouchAppViewer to download your web apps to their iPad.

More importantly, TouchAppViewer can be downloaded via App Store for FREE:
