Good afternoon and happy new year to all. I am new to this site and hoping that some of you have the iPad expertise I'm looking for. Please forgive me if this is a frequent question or if I should have posted in another forum...
I received an iPad 2 (16 MB and WiFi only) early in Dec, and this tech is pretty new to me as I'm a PC user, have an old mobile phone, and rarely use iTunes. I bought the "camera connection kit" from an Apple store, and as a test I imported some pictures via the SD connector and I wasn't impressed with the Photos program. So far I've loaded the free FileApp and MyMedia from the App Store, but I don't think these provide the functionality that I'm looking for. I hoped to seek some advice before I start buying the "pro" versions of the applications.
Would any of you know of a file management application that can be installed locally on the iPad that will function like Windows Explorer or Finder? I am hoping to install something simple that would offer the following:
- View all files stored locally on the iPad
- View all files in external device connected via USB (camera, iPod, flash drive, or even an external hard drive)
- Ability to copy files from an external device and store/access the files on the iPad
- Offers read/write/delete access of files stored locally on the iPad
As long as the program is well-written and doesn't crash, I don't care if it is free or costs a few dollars. Also, I would prefer to not JailBreak this thing until I've had it for a year and I learn more about it. Any advice you could provide me would be greatly appreciated.
