    When i'm trying to send a file (such as a PDF) to another app from Dropbox or Safari, I get a list of ten choices. Is there any way to control the contents of this list?


    [Edit: It's called "Open In..."]

    sorry

    The " Open In " list is a list of apps in your device that can open that file format.
    So you can't really adjust which apps appear unless you delete an app.

    Hope that helped you

    Thanks for the help

    I know what it is, but i have a lot of apps that can open PDFs, for example, and now i can't get them into the apps i want

    Found some threads where it was suggested that deleting iBooks removed the 10 app limit on the list for some folks. Didn't work for me though

    Annoying, I know. I understand we'll get better control over the list in iOS 6. Can't wait!

    Well if your issue is the 10 app limit then I guess there is no way to increase the number, but if you were trying to get a file to a specific app which does not appear in your open in list then you can copy the file to the documents folder in the app's folder
    You can use iFun-box software or even iFile (if you have a jailbreak)

    Maybe you should check your attitude. You seem to have your own problems in your own nonsense thread.
