    icab solves "greyed out choose file" check....downloads or photos?

    Goal: be able to upload resume when applying to jobs online.

    Problem 1: "browse" or "choose file" button is greyed out, so cannot click on it

    Solution 1: download icab (alternate web browser) $1.99 in app store

    Problem 2: after clicking "browse" or "choose file", my options are "downloads" or "photos". I am obviously not going to upload a photo of my resume. How do I get a copy of my resume to show up in the "downloads" list?

    Solution 2: PLEASE HELP!!!!

    I have 100% exactly the same problem. Everyone suggested downloading iCab too but if you're having problems then so will I. Cant understand why even a dropbox/iCloud based uploads are not allowed.

    If anyone else can help on this that would be great.

    Yes, this never worked for me!!! You will have to cut and paste your resume.

    Someone must know how to get a document into the "downloads" so they can be uploaded later.

    It's not that we are not answering. We don't know. I have no doubt if someone did they would tell you.

    Hi there all! I'm new to this forum and just decided to join in since I know the answer to the question
    After having used the first iPad I finally got tired of it being soooo slow and got the new one. My joy ended soon, as I am an enthusiast nature photographer who likes to browse photo web sites and sometimes posts some pictures there. Horrible was to see the image quality in Safari of photos being already posted by others. All pixelated, artifacted, unacceptable. I started asking dr Google about my issue and after having tried several other browsers with no effect I came accross this thread. Hopelessly I went to iTunes, payed 2 bucks and installed. And then... two of my issued were immediately solved by iCab!!
    First of all photos on websites look the same as on my desktop, even on 3G connection! (I can wait a little longer to load the webpage just not to see the crap I saw in Safari). And the upload really works - both for files and photos (tried it just a while ago, works perfectly). You asked how can you upload something other than photos and downloaded files - simple! You just need to go to your iTunes on the desktop, choose your device, then programs (or whatever it is called, I use Polish version so the name is definitely different ) and scroll all the way down to the File sharing window (again not sure of the English name for it in the English version), where you can download files from the apps in your device and upload to the device's apps too. Choose iCab on the left and use the "Add" button on the right. Simple as that. The chosen files will be uploaded to iCab and visible in the Downloads section, thus uploadable further on websites.
    I'm so happy I came accross iCab!! 5 starr app for me!
