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?

thanks! can you work on word documents back and forth to pc?
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.)
