Re: Click Bait.... Does it replace your
I've been experimenting with both, and both work rather well for most things. It seems DropBox and Microsoft collaborated to get their apps working together, but I'd worry about other apps being supported as readily. But at least it seems like I can open and edit Word and Excel documents from DropBox, and have them save directly back to the "server" without having to forward a copy from app to app. That's nice.

It does look like iOS devices can access folders shared from OSX Server at least. The option is kinda unintuitively hidden in Settings, Mail Contacts Calendars, Add Account, Other, Add OS X Server Account. They must not want anyone to ever find it, lol. Kinda neat though, especially if you have an all-Mac office.
