I am new to Dropbox, and I'd like to know if there is an easy way to access Dropbox content from SharePoint 2010 / Office 365.

For example, should I consider BCS? Or is there a way to work with the Dropbox API?

I've thought about this many a time... I don't think there is an easy way with DropBox, however I think it may be possible using SugarSync and using a mapped drive to a SharePoint library... – David Lozzi Feb 22 '12 at 20:32
@DavidLozzi thanks for the idea, but I am reluctant to duplicate the content. – Christophe Feb 22 '12 at 20:36
In that case, using the DropBox API a custom solution should be feasible. – David Lozzi Feb 22 '12 at 20:39

DropBox does have an API with a REST interface - described here. I think REST may be the way to go compared to BCS.

There's an article showing how it is used (via .NET) - Create, delete and move folders with the Dropbox REST API.
