Review the source code and example on GitHub.

DropioLogDemo.java
shows the first screen for the app
UpdateLog.java has sample usage to show logging an exception and saving user input.

Declare a DroidDropNote Client:
DroidDropNoteClient dropClient= new DroidDropNoteClient(“–YOUR API Key”);
dropClient.setToken(“–drop password or token”);


Write out a Note/Text contents:

results = dropClient.createNote( “DROPNAME”, “Note title”,  “Message”);
