Is it just me?

I use my ipad a lot for documents and I have a lot of projects going.

Within "Local Files" we definitely need folders! If not everything is just cluttered like crazy and unorganized.

At least there is a sort by last modified, but that's no excuse!

Just found out you can make folders for it within the jailbreak app "ifile"

Documentstogo reads the folders in "Local Files" sweeeeeeeet

I have a series of files that I synchronize with the computer. I just slip my newly created document into one of those files. Just as one does on the PC/Mac.

If you sync Docs to Go with Google Docs it will allow you to store the document locally and use folders. That is the only way that I use it!

Documents To Go does have folders …

… if by "Documents To Go" you mean "Quick Office Mobile Connect."

QOMC is the best office-work app for the iPad. It'll import all your DTG docs with no trouble, and you're off & running with folders galore—& a file-management system that imitates the Finder in OS X.

Thanks Zenitsu.
Yes it is possible to add a folder using "iFile" but it works only for the "local" option (i.e.: files created only on the iPad, not shared with Desktop or Cloud).

I found a folder in iFile that seems to be related to the Cloud option in "...applications/docstogo/documents/.hidden/CS/1-xxxxxx/files" where xxxx is your internet address. But if you add a folder in this location ir DOES NOT synchronise with DocsToGo. It is indeed present in iFiles but not in the Cloud folder of DocsToGo.

I since found another tweak which is to use the Dropbox app (The cloud sharing application I use) on the iPad without using the PC.
. open Dropbox on iPad
. go to the uploads tab,
. click the plus sign and choose a folder you pretend to want to upload,
. choose dropbox down below and browse to where you want to create a new folder and
. use the create folder option.
You don’t need to actually upload a file. The only wat today to create a new folder in Dropbox (weired...)

When you go back to DocsToGo / Cloud and sync, the new folder is there.
Thinking twice it makes sort of sense.... (iFiel works only one way..)

Regs,
