[Android] CC/Dropbox seems to be broken

Apparently Dropbox no longer supports the method CC has used for years to authenticate with Dropbox. Worse for me, they appear to have gone out of their way to break apps that use this now-unsupported method. And worse again, they don't provide an alternative.

I am trying to find a fix, without success so far.

i will greatly miss that feature, if it goes

Still working, so far, with the iOS app. Never use it on my iPad, but use it on my phone when I want to grab the book I'm currently reading and without another device since I don't keep my entire library on my phone. Would miss it if it went away, although I'd still have other ways to grab a book.

i guess that if it is broke for good I will have to free up some google drive space and put my cloud copy there.
but GD is much slower to upload than dropbox, and I don't have the same level of trust with that. Dropbox has never let me down & I have used it for years for many things across many devices. Also, calibre in GD has that terrible reputation for messing with file/folder names and screwing things up
I wonder if the same issue is going to affect the Moon reader - dropbox link ? I do rely on that to store last page read, and I am not sure if other cloud syncs are supported in Moon

Authentication is broken. I can't login. If you are already logged in then it will work until you need to change the security token, which may be never.

Bummer, just bought this today and Dropbox doesn't work on my Android (Onyx Boox Note).

Somehow I could login without issue. I don't have a library on Dropbox, so I don't choose the folder, just quit.

I used gmail to log in.

Using gmail to log in works! I was able to log in, navigate to the library, and see books.

See this post for details on what I did to workaround the problem.
