Set up a dropbox account

A dropbox account offers the easiest way to load files that you would like to use for your presentation such as PowerPoint presentations, word-documents, photos, videos from a computer or laptop to your MMPresenter-App. The sign-in to your Dropbox takes place as soon as you would like to import a media file for the first time. If you do not have a Dropbox account as yet we highly recommend setting one up. You can register via www.dropbox.com and create a new account. Several tips to proceed efficiently are available via www.dropbox/help. Your files are now ready and you can get started.
