One of the most wanted features from an iPad, is the possibility to easily perform file transfer activities. Given its relatively high storage capacity, it could be used as a great portable media storage device. While it is not yet possible to fully simulate USB-like functionality due to system restrictions, there is a work around. Fortunately, we can utilize 3rd party app for this, which are mostly using the file sharing feature via iTunes while the device is plugged in. One of these apps is OrganiDoc HD, specifically built for the iPad by Wenjoy Technology.
Upon opening the app, we will be presented with the main screen consisting of several panels. On the left side, there is the list of data sources, including the local app directory, cloud storage, and the protected folder. We will talk about it later. Just below it is the preview section for supported file formats, tapping on it will bring you to the main reading view. Then, on the right is the main file browser, separated into 3 main tabs, each for the documents, photos, and media files, which will make your life easier while browsing your collections. You can also switch to the browsing section to cover-flow style view. While the document reading view supports all orientations, the main screen only supports the landscape orientation. For those who prefer viewing documents in the portrait orientation, moving back to the main screen will require rotating the device back to landscape view.
There are plenty of file formats supported by OrganiDoc, from standard office documents (for example doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pps, txt, pdf, iWork formats, etc), to image formats (such as jpeg, gif, bmp, tiff, and png), to compressed files, to various media formats including but not limited to mp3, aac, m4v, mov, and mp4. If you happen to own non-native media file formats for the iPad, it can help by converting it to supported formats.
Also included, is the ability to access your cloud storage, most of the popular cloud storage providers are supported, such as Dropbox, Google Docs, and of course, iCloud. With just a few simple steps, you can already start browsing through your files stored on the cloud right away.
Finally, whenever you want to share the stored files via wireless LAN, there is the option to activate the service, which allows you to access those files on any connected PCs and other capable devices, by opening the provided URL on the browser. Another bonus for supported devices, is that it even already support AirPlay, which will come in handy when watching videos, or during presentations.
