    Hello All!

    Happy Wednesday. I have a situation that I am trying to work through. My company's service department would have a need to download a .zip file to their mobile device (iPad), then unzip the file and transfer it to a USB thumb drive, perhaps via Airstash.

    I am wondering if anyone else is doing this same thing. Any ideas and suggestions are very much appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Ok, here is my idea.

    Download the file:
    From a web site, with Safari or any other browser and open it in Goodreader, unzip it there.
    From a cloud - goodreader and unzip it there.

    Now the file is unpacked and on the iPad.
    And then - yes airstash might work.
    Or use the build in wifi transfer to get the file from the iPad.


    I am not quite sure if this helps, because I do not entirely understand your goal/task.
