    iPad The Files app is still a disaster

    I wrote this on the main news thread, but I’m so late it’s buried and I did enough extensive testing that I figured it was worth a post here. The Files app is still a disaster for external drives. It has a LONG way to go to be ready in time for launch. I would not be surprised at all if...

    Flash drive to back up iPad docs (not just photos)

    I was disappointed to find that the SanDisk iXpand can only copy photos and videos from the iPad. I’m hoping that this isn’t a limitation imposed by Apple. I’m a creative pro and need to back up large Procreate and Affinity Photo docs. Yes, I can back up to the cloud, but upload is slow over...
