    I suggest that anyone that wants to see what is required, go to URL Droplet and try it. You'll see that it will ask for your Dropbox credentials. You then have to go to Dropbox and grant permission for URL Droplet to access your Dropbox account.

    Now there may be an API that can pass an authentication token back and forth, but the bottom line is that any service that can transfer files to your Dropbox account needs permission to do so.

    If you're okay with that, then go for it.

    For those with a security concern regarding this, there doesn't seem to be a problem. I do this in Android daily. When I want to save to Google drive, from my Web Browser, I choose share menu pops up with the option to copy the web page to several locations, one being Google drive. The chosen page or file is then directly saved to Google drive, without first being downloaded to my computer. I also do this in Windows, when using Google's Browser, (slightly different menu choice, i.e. save as, rather than share). I would also like to do this on my Blackberry. I think the answer is to get Google's Web browser working on the Blackberry which after doing some research it seems to be possible. Just haven't tried it as I'm a Windows/Ubuntu long time user, also using Android for about a year, but new to Palm, so I proceed slowly making changes to it. In the next few days I will be trying it, and will let you know the result.

    Is this just not possible, or does no one really care for such a feature? I wish I had the time to learn to program, as I'd just do it myself XD

    Project gutenberg has a fearture like this (eg:). There is an option to send the book directly to your google drive but you have to give it permission. I guess it's a matter of time before similar things start popping up.

    Hi gakio12

    I was gonna give you the same solution as patronanejo. That webapp is the bomb! You are not confined to use only one cloud service like dropbox with this.

    I was also in search of this same kind of app cuz even i wanted to download a file directly to my google drive as i too have broadband and 3G limitations.

    But i wish to thank you too for starting this thread and although this took quite a while for ppl to understand exactly what it was you were looking for and then provide a solution, you finally did get it!

    Cheers man!

    sorry to resurrect this thread but...
    wait, is there now an app or script that can allow you to save files directly google drive?
    I find it somewhat annoying that I cannot always directly edit some certatin filetypes from google drive on android, and I would like if there can be a way to directly save files to google drive so that I can conveniently view it on other synced devices, even if it means having to download it first and then upload.( I don't think adnroid chrome supports extensions/apps yet)(does google already give you an option for saving to drive in chrome?)
    Also, I would think it cool to have a "Box Edit" style feature so I can edit any file and have it automatically sync, like quickoffice.

    Basically, I would mainly like more cloud integration, especially the ability to save files directly to Drive.

    That being said though, there are going to be some security-realated questions before this can be implemented.

    Amit's web app is well needed, and it seems to work for small files, but maybe not for big ones? At least I was able to transfer one file about half a GB to my Google Drive, but when I tried a 2.9 GB zip file, it produces an error (repeatedly). Or it may be something other than the size. I also wasn't able to transfer a _public_ Dropbox URL file to Google Drive, it told me it was an invalid URL, which it isn't. Can't find any documentation of any limits, etc. that might explain these issues.

    I wrote a script that does exactly what you're looking for.

    Perhaps it does, or perhaps it was malware you wrote back in July. How can I see the source before I execute it?

    Amit's script has changed behavior recently... It used to fail (with large .zip files) after connecting up to Google Drive and clicking Save. But now, the Save button is disabled when connecting up to Google Drive... the only way I've found to enable the button is disconnecting from Drive, but then of course I wouldn't expect the button to work, and it doesn't. Wish I could see Joe's script to know what it does....

    You can use a free service like:

    for large files, go (<10GB files)

    Just copy and paste link, click upload.
    Check and give your feedback.
