Feature Request - Show Dropbox Directories

Within "Get Books", in the Dropbox option, please show the EPUB Ebooks grouped within the directory (folder) hierarchy. Please show the full path to the root of the user's Dropbox, even if you must wrap the path name to multiple lines.

I have my Ebooks organized into specific folders within my Dropbox. However, I cannot necessarily find the book I want in the list currently given by Marvin. Also, I separate DRM & DRM-free Ebooks into different folders, yet both are included in Marvin's list.

This feature would also apply to other cloud storage services you may decide to support in the future, such as iCloud or Google Cloud (neither of which I currently use).

Also, please consider offering various sort orders for listing the books in each Dropbox folder, and for listing the folders themselves.

Thanks for your idea. Actually, at the moment I'm working on a new Dropbox system to get around the current "1000 book" limitation and I'll be checking out your idea while I'm working on it.

Tip: if you go "Home > Settings (gear icon) > Services" you can force Marvin to only look in a specified folder for EPUB books.

Thanks. It worked great on both my iPad and my iPhone.

I look forward to your revised Dropbox system.

@dclewis - I finally have a working prototype of Marvin that can read beyond the current 1000 book limit. I think it will make it in the next or following update.
