I need to find a way to copy files for Dropbox or Google Drive to my phone. Samsung doesn't allow this in 3rd party file managers like ES File Explorer.

Can anyone please suggest a workaround or app that would make this happen?

Rant: I can't believe Samsung took this away. I feel more and more like iPhone users the more I use this phone. Rant over.

there are workarounds yes, but third party apps such as dropbox or google drive will not save to the external sdcard only to internal memory, esfile explorer works great to copy files to and from the external sdcard.
