    Hello all,

    As per title is it possible to upload documents say CV, transcript etc to a job application site?

    I tried but the upload button is grayed out, this means in iPad you WILL never be able to upload? Anyone can help on this as using iPad has become a mainstream device for me and I have been using my MacBook pro less!

    Thank you.

    It can't do it now.
    Will it be able to in the future? I believe so, but it's impossible to say in what timeline. It would take some significant changes in iOS and I doubt those are in Apple's priority list for now.

    Oh too bad. If that's the case then what is the use of the iPad? I am discovering how limited the iPad is now! Hmmm maybe the iPad is for Apple to make money off us consumers otherwise it's a great tablet......

    Wonder if iOS 5 will help on this aspect is beyond me!

    This really is something that needs addressing.

    It is tantamount to a fault with the operating system and needs to be sorted out.

    Will it be rectified in ios5?

    Some basic functionality is missing in the iPad this makes the iPad limited in it's use. Well just wait and see what iOS5 brings. We can't possibly be buying every single app just to make up for the iPad's shortcomings!!

    Everyone has different uses... if it doesn't support your needs then don't waste your money buying it.
