Looks good,  and right on time for me!!!

Just finishing an app that uses the dropbox external and the biggest pain was the app shutting down on the users request and not completing the dropbox backup.  This looks like the external for the job!

RunRev don't officially support apps that don't quit on suspend at the moment so I hadn't released it. After Guglielmo's request I decided to release with a note that it should be considered experimental. It's now available for purchase and download from mergExt for $29 (or as part of the suite). There's still a few weeks left to lock in the current pricing and I plan to release at least one new external every week in that time.
