    Hi... I ordered the pro 10.5 and had a question for you experts. I use a flash drive in the field and was considering using my new ipad in the field as well. I cant use wireless or cloud stuff with the company and was wondering if my flash drive will work with the ipad. Ideally I would want to edit pdf files and word documents in the field on ipad, transfer it to a flash drive and upload to work pc. Is this doable?

    Not sure about PC but I have worked on documents on my iPad, saved it to a flash drive and then transferred it over to my iMac (though most of the time I just Airdrop.)

    I use the iXpand drive,can transfer files from lightning port devices to computers with USB ports,regardless of what computer it is,I transferred docs and photos from iPad and iPhones to MacBooks,windows PC,and also,at one occasion,to a chrome book.
