SyncSMS lets you sync your text messages between your Android phone and tablet. SyncSMS lets you sync your text messages between your Android 2.1+ phone and 3G or WiFi-only Android 2.1+ tablet. This app lets you receive text messages on your tablet which have been received by or sent from your phone. Also, this app lets you compose text messages on your tablet which will be copied to your phone and sent out by your phone. You will need to sign up for a free Dropbox account, if you don't already have one, in order to temporarily store the messages between syncs.

Please rate and comment on the app in the Android Market and click Submit to Portal in the upper right of this post to vote this thread to XDA front page, thanks!

Doesn't work at all for me. I sign in to my existing Dropbox and get the error in the screenshot.

How do we know you are not capturing our DropBox credentials? This looks suspicious.

nevermind about the logcat, the issue is that I need a production API key from Dropbox. i agree on your suspicion, so i have posted the app's source code to instill confidence. please know that this app is not distributable or modifiable though. thanks!

Prove that your app is safe to install and immediately asks for Dropbox credentials and fails.

i have posted source code to my app which clearly shows that i use the dropbox api which requires username and password for the first login, then returns an access token per user which is the only thing that is saved to the local databases see LoginTask.java and Utils.java.

the 403 error stands for unauthenticated user. this is due to my app's dropbox api token being only validated for my email address. the app will work as described after i replace my api token with a production api token.

i do not deserve to be banned at all

Maybe not but you cannot release an app that does not demonstrate that you are not phishing username/password info which your initial release does not prove.

you know, honest mistakes do /actually/ happen in the world. plus, it's not my fault that Dropbox chooses not to allow OAuth for android apps. i never /wanted/ to have to have a user enter username/password in the context of my app for exactly this reason
