    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of leaving Android, and buying an iPhone SE.

    Before I make the Jump to IOS, I would like to ask a few things, that are not clear to me.

    With my android phone, I can easily take a txt, or JPG file with me.
    1 - Make file(s) on PC
    2 - connect USB cable
    3 - Drag file to the Phone
    4 - Done !!

    Then I can use these notes, reminders or screenshots, on my Phone whenever I need them.
    (without being connected to internet)

    Is this also possible on the iPhone ??
    Would be nice If this is possible without iTunes/dropbox or too much fuzz.

    a simple methode would be nice :)

    Like to hear from you.

    The closest option I can think of right now is using "Documents" app, which allows you to wirelessly upload files or folder to your phone. You can then use those files within app, or further process those files in other apps.
    "nPlayer" is another option. It is mainly for media playback but it's wireless file management is better than Documents and more reliable on me. You can then open them in other apps.

    You can try air disk free. Look for it in the App Store.

    Another vote for the Documents 6 app (by Readdle). This app acts as a file browser/manager and allows the creation and editing of text files as well as transferring them to and from iCloud Drive.

    I found Dropbox to be the easiest, put it in the Dropbox folder on my PC, then open it on my phone.

    Dropbox is the easiest in my experience. Works on most major platforms.
