Using Dropbox with Sparrow

Sparrow 1.5 introduces Dropbox support for attachment. 

  • Go in Sparrow’s “Preferences”
  • Click on the “Services” tab


  • Log out from CloudApp (if needed)
  • Click on Dropbox & enter your credentials
  • You’re all set


Once you have activated CloudApp in Sparrow, here are the basics of how it works:

  • Dragging and dropping attachments in the composer will directly upload it with CloudApp.
  • Dropping an attachment to the bottom of the compose window will attach the file the classic way.

  • Using the Attachment button in the top-left corner will always upload files the old classic way.

  • Dragging and dropping attachments on Sparrow’s dock icon will opens a new composer and upload the file with CloudApp.

  • Pressing ‘Cmd’ while dragging and dropping a file in the composer will attach it the classic way.
