Often it so happens that an individual may read a particular article or refer to other documents in a completely different place. In such cases, copying the particular file on a iPad or iPhone is indeed an interesting aspect. The question is can this be file be replicated on the particular device.
It is a commonplace that every user by now will know about the wonderful functionality provided by Dropbox. The application serves the purpose of sharing files across various platforms and devices. The irritating aspect includes that of having a certain limited storage space. Another thing that hinders in the course of the usage is that the files need to be downloaded from a server for viewing the particular file unless a local copy has been stored previously.
One can always ponder upon such a situation that whether an app can serve as the functionality for reproducing the same file from a particular PC to the user’s iPad or iPhone. The benefit of this approach can be about the reading efficiency provided later in this regard because files can be read without resorting to the cloud. This mission can be functioned by the use of a certain application which serves as a propitious element for the completion of this particular activity.
The application that serves the purpose is FileApp (Documents & Files reader). The operation of the app is dished out in a certain way. Primarily there are three ways that are displayed for connecting it to a PC or a mobile device. These are the following:
- Wirelessly by FTP using Windows Explorer
- Using a USB cable using a desktop client DiskAid
- iTunes File Sharing
The usage over the private Wi-Fi network is the best approach to carry out this specific functionality. This is done by opening the Windows Explorer, and then typing in the address given, such as ftp://192.168.x.x:2121 & subsequently copying files from the PC to the particular handset. This is done by the drag-and-drop method or copy-and-paste.
Thereupon the files are copied & the respective documents are read easily along with the workability of the media files on the particular device. The various file types that are supported for the usefulness include:
- MS Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint)
- Open Documents (Text, Spreadsheet, Presentation for LibreOffice or OpenOffice, basic formatting only)
- iWork (Pages, Numbers and Keynotes)
- Plain Text and RTF (Rich Text Format)
- Images (JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF and others)
- Audio (MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV)
- Video (MP4, standard iPhone format H.264)
- Web Archives, HTML files and more
The individual can search these files easily by folder, name, and date, file type or last opened. The specific files can also be removed from the device when not needed. There is a free version available for the iOS devices. It can be downloaded from here.
