I cheated on my iPad (sorry iPad)

Well I finally encountered a situation which despite best efforts I simply could not figure out a way to avoid using the iMac: someone sent me some large files via YouSendIt.

If you’re not familiar with the service, you get a link in an email.  Clicking the link downloads the file via the browser.  I can’t get that functionality to work on the iPad.  Not surprising, but a disappointment nonetheless.  I d/l’d them on the iMac and used Goodreader to import them to the iPad via wifi.

BTW the more I use iOS4 on my iPhone4 the more antsy I become to use it on my iPad.  It’s really “that good” and truly changes – for the better – how productive I am.  Moving email messages from one account to another is a huge feature in my workflow.  Now about collapsing those folders and subfolders…

  1. Couldn’t you paste the URL into one of your PDF apps?

    For example, GoodReader’s New Download > Enter URL feature?

    Or did the app just bomb out because of the file size?

    Or why not give them access to the public folder of dropbox and get it via that?

    Oh Anthony – there are ways 😉

    BTW – couldn’t agree more. IOS4 is needed on the iPad. If only for the folders option!

    What about entering “g” in front of the http web address?
