PyMOL can upload images to Dropbox. PyMOL can also download any type of file from Dropbox.
Once the link is made, Dropbox creates an “Apps” (/Apps) folder for you in your Dropbox root folder. Inside of there, Dropbox then creates the “PyMOL” (/Apps/PyMOL) folder. Use the native client on your machine and place all files you want accessible to PyMOL inside the /Apps/PyMOL folder.
PyMOL can only upload images to Dropbox. At this time, to upload structure data you need to visit http://www.dropbox.com and manage your files from there or use the a native Dropbox client.
PyMOL on the iPad is the only enterprise-targeted mobile visualization app. Aside from delivering great graphics and a professionally designed interface, we're the first to give our customers direct mobile access to their enterprise data through the “PyMOL Enterprise Server” (http://pymol.org/mobile-server). Other mobile visualization apps let you download from the PDB or PubChem; but, how useful is that for our customers? It's not: in no way does access to the PDB better inform our customers about their latest project data. What they need is seamless and secure access to their own data on-the-go. That's what the PyMOL Enterprise Server gives them.
The PyMOL Enterprise Server simply sits between their databases and Mobile PyMOL. It handles requests and can aggregate information from any back-end database from which data can be extracted (eg. Seurat, Oracle, Proasis, a directory of files, MySQL, etc). It uses SSL so it's secure. It will also be integrated into PyMOL, so the same level of access will be available across platforms. And, because we can convert MOE files to PyMOL Session Files (PSE) the easiest way to view a MOE file on the iPad will be through Mobile PyMOL!
PyMOL on the iPad ships with a fully functioning client to the PyMOL Enterprise Server. The default server is the public Demonstration PyMOL Enterprise Server. Feel free to peruse the data on this server. If you would like a custom copy of this server for your organization, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
