    That is the old inefficient way of working with data. Embrace the cloud. :)

    What you are asking for is impossible without a jailbreak. An app cannot access the files belonging to another app.

    Even with a jailbreak, it is dubious. Not sure what you are going to do with the files kept by most apps, which would be in a format proprietary to that app.

    That said, there are plenty of "file manager" apps. But they work in their own sandbox, and you are limited that whatever viewers/editors they provide. Most of these are integrated with multi-protocol file transfer capabilities. (FTP, web, sFTP, cloud providers, etc.)

    Basically, i downloaded a torrent app that lets me download video clips and they are in a folder. I then have yxplayer, but it only allows me to go to its own root directory. Soo... I wanna be able to move tshe files from the torrent download folder to the yxplayer folder.. I mean, i know i xan move the files and such on the computer with cyberduck... But i was curious if i can do all of that on ghe ipad itself.

    Btw, i appreciate ur replies ppl

    Just convert the files for iTunes use if they aren't already in a compatible format.
