I have a dropbox on my PC at home and am abroad for a few months with only my iPad. But i forgot to transfer music before i left. I have managed to get my flatmate to put some mp3's into my dropbox but i cant work out how to get them transferred to the iPod app.
Also it would be useful to be able to transfer avi files to the VLC or DivX apps.
IPad 2 :: View Folder And File Structure And Move Files?
Jan 19, 2012
I've installed FileApp Pro hoping I would be able to see the folder and file structure on my iPad but I can't figure out how to do it? I have created a document in Pages but It doesn't seem to show up anywhere in FileApp - I would like to be able to open it in Office2 HD but there doesn't seem to be an option to browse for files?
PDF Provider for ipad is an outstanding app which lets me do things I can't even do on my PC, like copy my blog while in administrative mode, but there is one thing I can't figure out. How do I send a .PDF from PDF Provider to my Dropbox.
I use Dropbox a lot, and aside from the occasional hiccup it syncs fine across my devices.
I added a folder called "iPad sharing", specifically to be able to get content from my iMac to my iPad. I created the folder on my iMac, and it shows up in DB online and on all my devices, except for my iPad. All other DB folders (and the content in them) display fine on my iPad.
General :: Managing Files On IPad - Folders To Organize Files And Backup Via Dropbox
Jun 17, 2013
I am using Office HD to update former xlsx or Word files. I downloaded legacy files from PC laptop to Dropbox. I also have File Manager but not sure I need that; seems redundant. I want to save and backup files via dropbox or icloud. When I create or update a file in Office it saves to folders in Office. I do not see how to save or move the updated file to Dropbox or File Mgr.
I do not want to keep moving them from one folder structure to use, and another structure to backup.
Apps :: PDF Expert - Deleting Synced Dropbox Folder?
Feb 19, 2014
I bought the new PDF expert app, and both have dropbox synced to them. I want to delete the dropbox folder synced to my old PDF expert app, but I am afraid that if I do it, I will end up deleting all my files when I open up the dropbox app. How can I delete the dropbox folder in my old PDF expert file without deleting any files in dropbox or the new PDF expert? Having duplicate files is taking up a lot of space...
Use MacDropAny, A Free Dropbox Add On Applet, To Sync Your Mac's Documents Folder?
Apr 8, 2011
I've posted this in a few threads recently and thought some might find it useful on its own. As a power user (see my signature) solving the file management and related workflow issues has been a seemingly endless quest. I think I've finally hit on a solution. It definitely works. It definitely is not free. And it definitely should be replaced by a baked in solution from Apple...perhaps in iOS5 and the related MobileMe revamp.
Here's what I do in the meantime...
A) Use Dropbox. Subscribe (and pay) for additional storage as needed.
B) Use MacDropAny, a free Dropbox add on applet, to sync your Mac's Documents folder to your Dropbox. This creates a two way, real time sync.
C) Use dropDAV to allow iWork apps to pull in files from Dropbox AND, critically, to save files back directly into Dropbox. This has been the elusive last piece of the puzzle and avoids the email-file-to-yourself dance.
So my files exist on my Mac for archival/back up, in the Dropbox app as needed on the iPad, and in the cloud. All sync'd in real time. Gives you some nice redundancy too.It ain't as smooth or pretty as it should be, but it works!I do think Apple is going to fix this. But until they do, this works just fine...And yes you might suggest replacing Dropbox with iDisk BUT iDisk is flaky, and requires the creation of a sym link in terminal to sync it with your Documents folder. Until iDisk works better, I can't recommend it for heavy lifting.
I had my email set up at pop3 email and I changed it to imap. When I delete an email it says it can't move it to the trash folder..... I want to use imap so when I delete email on my cell it deletes it on my iPad....
I have a folder for car pictures on my iPad. I have transfered them from my pc using iTunes. I also have saved some photos to my iPad in the saved photos folder. Is there a way to put these photos that i have saved to my iPad to a folder that i have created from my pc through iTunes?
I am using gmail and am accessing it on the Internet. I will be traveling, and I want to move some email into my Personal folder. I do that easily on the computer, and I figured out how to view the folder, but I cannot find the move button.
