    Hi,

    I am a newbie and just recently picked up the iPad2.

    Are ther any free apps which will allow me to transfer files from my iMac to iPad2?

    I need to access my resume which is a Word document.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Dropbox should work for that. That is what I primarily use.

    Access and modify or just access for viewing? If it's just for viewing then save it as a pdf and access it through iBooks (you can just email it to yourself and open it in iBooks).

    If the resume is all you need to transfer and you just need to view it then use this method. Much simpler than setting up and using an app. I was assuming the OP needed something for more than just that one file.

    Quickoffice can send office files as attachments via email. I keep my files stored on dropbox for easy access between my home and work computers and my iPhone/iPad.

    Quickoffice can open my dropbox folder and allows me to make edits and or email those files. Works great in a pinch when you're not sitting in front of your computer.

    Then definitely go the iBooks route. You'll want to send your resume in pdf format anyhow so that shouldn't be an issue. You can then go to your resume in iBooks and hit the email button which will attach it to your email.

    I don't think Quickoffice qualifies as a "free app" the OP was requesting.

    I installed Dropbox and this will work for me.

    I can email my resume right from the app - great!
