Smashwords today added a Send to Dropbox feature that instantly transfers a purchased ebook to a customer’s Dropbox account.
Dropbox acts like a virtual hard drive for many tablets and smart phones, making it faster and easier for readers to load Smashwords ebooks onto their favorite tablet or mobile smart phone. No cables necessary!
Devices that support Dropbox include the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android tablets and smart phones, Google Nexus tablets, Nook tablets (Nook HD/HD+, Nook Color, Nook Tablet), Kindle tablets (Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD), and many others.
2. On the next screen, sign in to your Dropbox account. If you don’t have an account, click the “create an account” link to create one. It’s free.
3. Finish linking your Dropbox account with Smashwords by allowing us to create a Smashwords folder in your Dropbox account. Click "Allow" when asked.
6. Each time you purchase an ebook at Smashwords, we’ll automatically transfer up to three file formats – epub, mobi and PDF – to your Dropbox account. File format availability is determined by the author or publisher. You’ll find your files in Dropbox’s “Apps/Smashwords” folder.
7. You can transfer previously purchased books to Dropbox by clicking the Send to Dropbox button in your Smashwords Library.

Nice. I already use Dropbox to store my Smashwords purchases to Read in Marvin for iPad but this makes it even easier.
This is great. Love storing everything in the cloud when possible! Thank you, Mark.
Anyway we can get faster reporting on our sales? That's what people want desperately.
