Hi All,

Just a quick question.

Does anyone know if you will be able to download files on the iPad?

ie will I be able to go to a website and download a .pdf or word document to read later on?

Just wondered as you cannot do this on the iPhone.

Thanks

Paul

It will depend on the application I'm sure. I can download PDFs to my 3rd party reader, some rtf or txt documents to another, and so on. All on my iPod Touch.

I highly doubt that the iPad itself, or rather Safari, will allow you to directly download PDF and Word files.

Yea... you'll probably need a dedicated app for whatever type of document(s) you are trying to read/download. There are PDF apps out there that allow you to view/save from the web as well as transfer to your iPhone via a network connection.

Paul the iPhone GoodReader app allows you to do all kinds of wonderful things with the iPhone, the least of which is visiting a website and downloading PDF, WORD, or even MP3. It can even unzip and zip files for transfer.

But regards the iPad there will be a common method of adding files to the iPad for local use and then passing them back to another computer.
