I’m not allowed in. Is there anything official from Dropbox yet? Or is it something internal?

Interesting. Surprised no one is talking about this. Composer probably isn't supposed to be public yet, although @maggled and a few others seemed to get in. Here's a screenshot she shared on Twitter: Maybe it's available for previous Hackpad users?

@rrhoover I used to use Hacked, though it wasn’t linked to my Dropbox account. I’d love to check it out though!

@maggled @rrhoover I think you're right about being available for previous Hackpad users

@maggled @rrhoover The screenshot looks really similar to Evernote's new updated web UI and also similar to Simplenote too. I wonder if that is from design of how people want their notes laid out, or from what previous apps used for layouts/designs.

@maggled @rrhoover I use(d) Hackpad and had it attached to my dropbox account. I can't get in.

Randomly in! I have a note or two in hackpad, so perhaps that allowed me access? Really nice so far—some beautiful (beginnings of, it's a bit of a mash up at the moment) typography and very clean interface (reminiscent of evernote's web experience). It allows multiple people to work on a note. You can add tasks, images, dropbox files, tables all in line with your notes. It also prompts you to create a note for a meeting based on what's on your calendar. I can see this being useful in meetings/taking notes together. A bit hard to evaluate how the interaction will stand up when I'm not actually in a meeting/interacting with others on the app, but given we use google drive for a similar use, this could be a valuable switch. A little worried that some of the features are obscured to make the interface super clean, but it's possibly that their use case is that 90% of users will simply take raw, written notes collaboratively.

I see Dropbox colliding with Evernote, each is moving into the other's direction in many ways
