    Hi,
    I am wondering if there is a way to move(or save) a folder(with "shortcuts" in it)from my ipad to a service like dropbox or icloud ?
    I have ifiles but can't figure out how to do this.

    Is there another app that will let me do this ?
    Dropbox ?
    Goodreader ?

    thanks for any advice !

    I am a big cloud user but I am unclear of your question. Why would you want to save a shortcut?

    I have a folder filled with shortcuts that point to webpages.
    I want to move it off of my ipad, but do not want to lose it.
    So I thought putting it on the icould or dropbox would take care of this.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Any suggestons on how to do this without going to each webpage and copying the url ?

    I've been pondering this and I'm afraid I can't think of any way to save these bookmarks other than by going to each page individually to copy the site.

    All I can suggest is to make a document that contains the hyperlinks - then you can save it anywhere you wish (on the iPad or in the cloud).

    Unfortunately, it still starts with copying each web site address individually.

    I ended up using Good Reader, going to each website, importing the urls, putting them in a folder, and then moving the folder

    to Dropbox. Awkward but it worked...( a work around...)

    I like the document idea too. I have used that in the past many times but didn't even think of it this time.


    Thanks for the replies anyway.....
