On my windows computer I use file manager ALL the time to shift files between computers, and it's taken me some time to wrap my head around the new way of doing things on my iPad. File management through things like Google Docs, Dropbox and iTunes is a new way of doing things for lots of people.

    Loosen up all and don't be so critical to the new guys & gals. Just explain the sitution. File managements isn't extactly a "how do get online" or "how do I find cracked apps" type of noob question.
    I'm a windows and Mac user and chromeOS beta tester. I have a cr-48 with ONLY cloud based storage. keep your pretentious comments to yourself please.

    I have plenty of reasons for a file manager. for example, i cannot delete photos on the fly from the native app. annoying. a file manager would allow me to manually delete the file on the go.

    I use dropbox as an alternative storage with management but I have found dumb things like the photo example that spring up and could be fixed with a simple file manager.

    these apps do exist and are in the market. my question was which one people preferred in my situation. if you don't require the use of one then feel free to pass this thread. none of the responses to my question were helpful or appropriate.

    if you don't have constructive criticism or anything to contribute go help another thread. just because I'm new to this forum doesn't imply I'm a tech neophyte.

    So you're being a jerk is somehow justified by our making an assumption based on the fact you did not provide us with enough informaiton to make an appropriate suggestion? Why don't you simply RTFM and figure it out yourself?

    go back and read my original posts. i stated my question clearly and then was attacked by several members. and "RTFM"?! are you serious?

    aren't these the same forum mods that run Droidforums.net. your comment is ban worthy.

    if you aren't a part of the solution you're part of the problem.

    mods please close this thread before it gets out of hand. I will resort to another venue for a solution.

    Naman, i went back and read the whole thread, and you were the wine who started with the attacks. You quoted Hal and blew up in a defensive post giving your background and whatnot, coming across as an arse. Hal knew nothing about you and made an assumption based on the average user asking the same exact question you didn't bother to search for. He was actually on your side...

    After that, you started being the 'they are making fun of me, stop them' posts... I don't think the mods are here for your postal feelings, especially one who starts the animosity.

    Go do a search, there is plenty of info already. That is, if the posts above, including mine, which offer solutions are 'just not good enough' for you.

    naman,

    My response to your original note was an attempt to explain what you MAY have been thinking, based on my OWN experiences. If you go back and read what I wrote, you would see that. I was not dissing your tech expertese, or anything else. When I read your note I though of my own desires for a file manager which I have not found myself. I felt ANOTHER writer was dissing you, and wanted to try to help. Sorry you felt otherwise.

    I don't understand what all this animosity is for. It was a simple question.

    I would like a file manager as well. I'd like to be able to see everything that is on my iPad all in one organized spot - documents, videos, pictures, apps, etc. That way if I'm running low on space, I can browse through and see how much space is being taken up by each item and decide what to remove. That's much easier than looking through a bunch of different apps, which still don't even show the file size.

    The biggest problem I have is that I have no way of seeing how large my apps are (at least not that I've found yet). You can see the file size in the App Store, but once they're on your iPad, all you see is the icon. I'd like to be able to see how large my apps are so I can determine which ones can be deleted if I am low on storage and don't use the apps much.

    If you've got a mac take a look at PhoneView which works with iPhones, iPods and iPads.
    There's a seven day free trial.

    Damn Hasty....got there one second before I did with that post lol
    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    Well, I'm probably the least experienced one on this thread, but I have had really good experience with iDisk, which I haven't seen mentioned. Maybe that's because they don't like it or something, I don't know.

    After going through what I think you are right now and figuring out that I had no choice but to begin learning about "cloud computing", I looked into iDisk after setting up on MobileMe for $99 a year and found that it looked like it could serve as an effective bridge between my Ipad, Desktop PC and my wife's Ipad. I set it up and now do all my Excel spreadsheet and Word document work on the Ipad (using the Apple BT keyboard of course) and do a very quick (10 second) transfer to my iDisk file manager folders. It's now kind-of 2nd nature and I don't even think about it anymore. Any PDF files are easily read and stored using GoodReader as discussed. I also store some of my PDFs in iBooks.

    For what ever it's worth. what I've found is a lot of expertise and opinions on this forum regarding these kinds of needs but, in my opinion, you should at least look into Apple's native solutions in addition to all the "favorites" out there. I'm basically a Windows PC guy Apple wannabe, so I'm no expert, but I have not had to stray very far from the Apple tree to find my solutions. The iDisk solution has been very elegant for me......BUT, I have not tried DropBox (I probably will sometime).

    I hope this helps you a little.
    Mike
