    I thought one of the additions to iOS 6 was being able to attach items from within an email. I don't see how.

    It's a half-backed "feature" that doesn't really address the pain of writing e-mails in iOS. You hold down on the text area in the e-mail, then on the pop up, scroll to the right, click attachments. But you can only attach pictures, not files or stuff from other apps. Apple's e-mail really sucks if you actually want to write anything more than a quick blurb.

    Tap and hold like you would to select, then tap the right arrows until you see "Insert".

    This is why iOS desperately needs a central documents/files repository that any app can access and save to, like there is for photos.

    You can email files from the iFiles app, but only one at a time. Better than nothing.

    Apple claims, by the way, that you can attach Word docs, etc., but they don't say how or if you can do multiples.
