    I am new to the Ipad 2. My main goal in getting it was to be able to easily carry with me my multiple To Do lists. I
    need an app that has an organizational system similar to Windows Explorer where I can have notes inside multiple
    folders within folders. They need to be able to be easily moved about & reordered. I don't need any fancy
    bookshelves or covers. They just need to be easy to see & see what is inside of each folder if you want. They need to be able to expand & collapse. I need it to work off-line.
    Please help. I have already spent about 10 hours searching the App store & the internet. i have already tried
    Evernote, Meteor, aNote & FileApp & they don't do it.

    Rachel, I am a user of evernote, and use various other tools (outliner e, mindmapper etc etc) . you are very specific in that you want multiple to-dolists, but they HAVE to be in folders within folders. this intrigues me, because it seems to me the worst way of orgaizing lists i could imagine, especially non a tablet like the ipad. If you can explain why that is a requyirement for you maybe i can help. Tom

    Now you can try files-finder edition. I am using it own on my ipad and it's extremely simple to use for users who are not from mac environment.Windows users will find it much similar to explorer and mac users will see it just like finder perhap's that is why app name is Files-Finder Edition
