Apple Apple is rejecting applications that use Dropbox because if the user of such an application does not have the actual Dropbox application installed, he is presented with a Dropbox login form through Safari, which happens to also show a sign-up link, and after clicking on that sign-up link, users could potentially run into one of the paid Dropbox options. Application developers and users surprised by this may need to read about the frog and the scorpion.

There is an app in Windows Phone 7 called SurvivalCraft (nice little Minecraft clone) that optionally uses Dropbox to store your game saves. It also launches the web browser to navigate to the Dropbox site and create a Dropbox account if you don't already have one. So far that hasn't been a problem for Microsoft.
