    Hi, I'm wondering if I can put .txt files from my PC to my iPod Touch?

    Is this possible to do? If so how would I go about doing this?

    Thanks.

    Dropbox would be the easiest way to manage .txt files on your iPod.

    I have a dropbox; what do I do now? How do I get the .txt files onto the iPod Touch?

    Download the Dropbox app from the app store and sign into your account. Everything you sync with Dropbox will be available on your iPod.

    But wait; how will I access my txt files without the Internet?

    Any ideas?

    You cannot, apple does not support file management on iOS devices. You can buy iWork though, every .txt file you make on your mac (In iWork) will be viewable and editable on your device. iWork's "Pages" is $9.99 on the iTunes app store.

    Well, you'll have to be connected to the Internet at some point in order to initially sync the files to your iPod. If you want to view/edit them without being connected to the Internet, though, have a look at PlainText. PlainText syncs with Dropbox, but also stores a local copy of the files.

    I don't know what that is.
