I'm a little confused by this old thread.
I think it means this:
There once was a free program for PCs and macs called GoodReaderUSB. It allowed you to easily transfer files from the computer it was installed on to a connected iPhone or iPad. It meant that you didn't have to go through iTunes, as long as you also had the GoodReader app installed on your idevice.
A few months ago the company who made it (Goodiware) took it off their website for some reason. However, I've just discovered that you can still get it if you look for it.
It looks like an extremely useful program to me. Does anybody here think it would be a bad idea for me to download, install and use it?
