    If you download that PDF reader app, no, iFile won't use it to open a PDF file within its default viewing field. However, iFile does have an "Open In..." type of function. It won't specifically say "Open In...", but when you select to open a PDF in iFile, you will get a pop-up that will include the option to select the default iFile "PDF Viewer" or the apps that can read PDFs.

    Hope that makes sense and that I've understood your question correctly. If not, please holler back and we'll take another stab at it.

    What URL are you trying to access? The quote you have talks about copying within iFile, so I'm a little confused as to what you are attempting to do? Could you expand your question/issue? Thanks.

    He's talking about the wifi transfer I guess. I think you can only upload one item at a time, ifile is probably not suited for your task, your best off with photosync, this allows you to transfer as many videos and photos as you like from pc to ipad, ipad to iphone or ipad to pc etc. This can be done either by wifi or bluetooth. Its not free but an excellent program as I'm sure others will agree.

    Sorry for the confusion. I only quoted that to get an answer from graywolf...

    I am going to the ip address ifile gives to access iPad from your pc. When there I am trying to upload a custom theme. There are many files and folders to upload. Just seems like there has to be a better way than ONE FILE AT A TIME.....

    Oh, I see - thanks for clearing that up. :)

    May I suggest, however, for mass movement such as what you're trying - use something like iFunbox. You hook your iPad up to the computer with the USB cord (with iTunes closed), start iFunbox and then you can drag/drop files all day long ... and in big batches, too. I've moved whole themes around (to and from the iPad) with one click after selection.

    TBH, while iFile is great for working ON the iPad, I sure wouldn't want to use it to get stuff TO the iPad. A quick file transfer program like iFunbox is much easier. Of course, and as always ... YMMV.

    iFunbox is a free computer program that is installed on your Windows or Apple computer. It can be downloaded from www.i-FunBox.com.

    I love ifile on the jailbroken ipad it should have been how the ipad was made in the first place.
    How do I download an image off the net (say with Safari or other browser) and save it directly to an SD card in my camera connection card. (Ipad 2 jailbroke with iFile)
    I have succesfully downloaded images into the ipad via Safari by saving the file but Safari does not allow me to select where the image goes. Then I have to transfer the files to the card and delete the files from the ipad.
    Thanks

    As far as I can tell, there is no way to download directly to an SD card. I just tried it, using the Cydia tweak "Safari Download Manager." and, when offered the ability to change the file destination, the furthest back I could get in the folder hierarchy was /var/mobile. I was not able to "see" the SD card that I had mounted.

    So, I don't think it's possible. I believe you still have to do the extra step of cutting/pasting. I could have missed a step, though, so I'm willing to be corrected, however... :) Or, maybe the same kind of tweak for the Chrome app can do it. I don't have that tweak, so I couldn't try it out.
