- choose “Developers” in the drop-down list: you will be directed to the page for developers

- go to “App Console”: it directs you to the list of applications

- click the “Create App” button: the Dropbox will check your email: click Send Email. In your mail system inbox you will find an email having a “Confirm” button: click the button to confirm your email address.


Finally you will be directed to “Create a new Dropbox Platform app”.

Select "Dropbox API app" and answer the question "What type of data does your app need to store on Dropbox?" by selecting "Files and datastores".

Answer the question "Can your app be limited to its own, private folder?" by choosing either of the two proposed answers.
