    Cool Finally Good File Management with GoodReaderUSB

    Where Apple and iTunes fail, leave it to developers to shine!

    goodiware.com :: products :: GoodReader :: Manual :: USB

    I'm really happy about this.

    USB File Transfer is the fastest and the easiest way to put files to GoodReader from your computer. Unlike with WiFi File Transfer, there's no need to go through a complicated WiFi setup process, and a frustration of WiFi network troubleshooting. While you can use Apple's way of transferring files via iTunes program (see directions below), we strongly encourage you to use a much more advanced USB file transfer using our own free computer program called GoodReaderUSB, which will give you a significant advantage: Advanced USB file transfer using GoodReaderUSB computer program
    • transfer files and folders
    • browse deeply into GoodReader's subfolder structure directly from your computer
    • no need to have iPad and/or iOS 4. This method works with all eligible devices - iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, with all OS versions starting from 3.0, and with all available versions of GoodReader app - GoodReader for iPad, GoodReader for iPhone, GoodReader Lite for iPhone.

    Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (iTunes must be installed on your computer)
    Download the program here: GoodReaderUSB for Windows
    Mac OS X 10.4 / 10.5 / 10.6 (Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard)
    Download the program here: GoodReaderUSB for Mac
    (GoodReaderUSB is a product of our joint development project with awesome Macroplant company, check out their other applications, they're cool - http://www.macroplant.com)
    After downloading:
    • unzip downloaded package
    • run GoodReaderUSB program

    • connect your iPad / iPhone / iPod touch to your computer via USB cable
    • select a device to work with (if you have connected several of them), select a version of GoodReader to work with (if you have several different versions installed on the same device)
    • drag your files and folders with a mouse to GoodReaderUSB program window (drop them to the rightmost section of the window)
    • you can drop bunches of files and folders, there's no need to drop them one by one
    • you can also drag files and folders in the opposite direction - from GoodReader to computer
    • wait for file transfer to finish
    • exit GoodReaderUSB
    • disconnect USB cable
    • start GoodReader app on your iPad / iPhone / iPod touch
    • enjoy your files

    Heads Up!
    There is no reference to this any more on the website, the download links in my original text work.

    Better get your copy of GoodReaderUSB before Apple pulls it... I'm worried that Apple has disallowed this wonderful PC/Mac software.

    Apparently its too late. The only good.iware apps available are the GoodReader (lite and paid) and the calculator (lite and paid).

    I do have the iPhone Explorer app (which has also been pulled), but since I never got a chance to get up close and personal with GoodReaderUSB, what is the difference between the two?

    The app GoodReader is still there, and the desktop app is available for download using the original links, but all references have been removed on the goodi.ware website.

    I can't honestly say what the difference is, but GoodReaderUSB bypasses the need to use the crappy iTunes interface to get access to (read and write, including subdirectories) the GoodReader app space using the normall USB cable connection.

    I only need to access GoodReader's sandbox. What does iPhone Explorer do? Do you have to be jail broken?

    First of all, I was wrong! It happens once in a while, but I try not to make a habit out of it! iPhone Explorer still exists. It is not an app, but a PC program that gives you access to your file structure.

    iPhone Explorer - A USB iPhone browser for Mac and PC

    I learned about iPhone Explorer from Stanza and it works on an "unmodified" iPad. They recommend it as one of the ways to get content from your computer on to your iDevice. However, with the latest version of Stanza, you can drag your content right into the Stanza app on iTunes without having to go through all this... but you can if you still want to.

    No worries. I got a reply from their technical support and they said it is still available same link in my OP. They didn't mention anything about it being pulled.

    Moron Alert!!!

    For some reason, I was thinking there was a separate program called GoodReaderUSB. No wonder I couldn't find it! For some reason, I never scrolled that far down on the Apps tab to see that option for the GoodReader program that I have had all along. It seems I can also drop stuff into Stanza and CineXPlayer the same way. Man I love this forum!
