    Anyone figured out zen viewer?

    I can't get it to find anything already on my iPad? Can't find pics, movies or PDFs associated with goodreader. Strange product looks good but does nothing.

    All apps in iOS store files locally and can't see files associated with other apps. What Zen is doing is locally storing and organising files that you upload to it via WiFi or iTunes. Then, from Zen, you can open them in an associated app - when a copy, local to that app, will be made. Zen cannot 'see' files in other apps - such as GoodReader, Photos, Pages etc - that's a limitation of iOS and not Zen. Only in a jailbroken iPad can apps 'see' each others files.

    I notice that Zen can use Dropbox, so you could use Dropbox as a cloud for all your compatible apps. Doing it this way Zen will see the files and folders as will the other apps.

    Tim thanks for your comments but my iPad is jailbroken and zen can't even see my photos in the photos folder.

    Probably something you should have mentioned before ~ if you didn't. I will move this to our Hacking section.

    Afraid this nothing to do with being jailbroken. JB doesn't magically change Zen into being able to see anything else. The app will only work the way it is coded to work, which was according to Apples sandbox approach.
