    Filestork does not seem to do anything I cannot do by myself with a simple mail...

    Furthermore, this thing asks for acces to your dropbox-account without telling that such requested and of course, granted acces is for the WHOLE dropbox-account and not just for the Filestork-folder.

    After testing it, with, as I told no interest at all on this "application", there is no way to uninstall it from my dropbox-account, nor a way to contact any human being at dropbox-staff to explain the thing.... that I have something I dont know a thing about with full access to my account!!!!

    F.A.Q.-you, sucker! they both (filestork and dropbox) seem to say.
