i re installed an app called folder sync pro, which can connect to cloud, to my new device.
when I went into cloud connections, a help screen said that it would be using OAUTH.
I told it to connect to dropbox, gave my credentials when asked, and it connected. via OAUTH apparently. so why does OAUTH work for that app but not for yours, with dropbox ?

PS there is a a free version. folder sync - if you want to see its auth process in action

same app basically, the pro version has a few extra bells & whistles.
