The Dropbox iOS SDK in Objective-C provides developers access to Dropbox for integration with other applications and devices. Dropbox is a file storage, sharing, and synching service that allows users to store, share, and sync their files.
With the recent explosion of cloud computing services, developers now have more opportunities than ever to take advantage of enterprise-scale computing platforms. However, most cloud computing services, such as Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), have unique and incompatible APIs. This has provided a challenge for organizations wanting to develop in-house applications that can later be seamlessly deployed directly to Amazon's service when necessary. For example, Ubuntu Server, a Linux-based operating system supported by Europe's Canonical Ltd, is the most widely deployed operating system on EC2, yet there has been no way for developers to create private, EC2-compatible cloud computing systems internally with Ubuntu.
Back in July, ProgrammableWeb reported that Dropbox had launched a beta version of the Dropbox Datastore API which provides a new method of syncing and storing data on Dropbox. Dropbox has just announced that the Datastore API is now out of beta and the first stable version of the API has been released.
