    I was having trouble getting the Dropbox onto my K-Fire and found this instruction: Worked great.

    >>>I my new Kindle Fire, which runs a modified Android Gingerbread. One of the ways the Kindle Fire is different from most Android devices is it does not have the Google Android Marketplace; instead apps must be obtained through Amazons own app store. As of this writing, the DropBox app is not available in the Amazon App Store, but I was able to get it installed on my Kindle Fire anyway with the following steps:

    Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the Kindle Fire home screen to activate the Settings window
    Click More
    Scroll down to Device
    Scroll down to Allow Installation of Applications from Unknown Sources and move the slider from Off to On
    Youll be prompted to confirm you mean to do this; you agreee
    Switch to the Kindle web browser and go to https://www.dropbox.com/android (NOTE: the https is important!), and click Download App. This will download the Dropbox .apk file
    When the download is finished youll see a notification in the top left corner. Click it and scroll down to the notification that the download of the Dropbox .apk file is complete. Click the file.
    You will be prompted to install the application. Click the button
    Once installation is completed, start the Dropbox application and log in.
    Done!

    You can get Box, it does the same, available from Market or Amazon. There was a special that you get 50 GB for Android, it it is still available.

    I have it on my Fire (rooted), Optimus (rooted), iPod Touch and computer of course. The only downside is that Ti Pro does not integrate with it.
