    Hi guys, some websites have a button for you to upload a file to them. I need to upload a pdf, but clicking the button only lets me upload a video or something from my photo album. My pdf is in goodreader, but it doesn't look like I can send it to my photo album. Any ideas on what to do? I also have Documents, Evernote, and Smart Office 2 if they would help.
    Thanks a bunch!

    I would but all the reviews seem to say it's broken. Plus I'm not sure it really allows you to upload a file, it looks like it's more for downloading videos and whatnot from the web.

    Ah, today is your lucky day my good man. For i have the answer you seek. Like you, I once searched for such a way to upload files to a website...and like you, i posed the same question here in these forums. I shall now pass unto you the golden nugget I so received. With this knowledge, take forth, download the app and upload to any website till your heart is content.

    App = iUploader

    O weary and seasoned Traveler, I humbly thank you for spreading the good word of usable apps for the transmutation of website to PDF. With this golden nugget, my long and arduous quest will soon be at an end.

    My heart will be content. My spirit will be at rest.

    Dear One,
    I am from India and this app (iUploader) is not shown in my App Store. Don't know what to do. Please suggest a way. Thanks

    It's not perfect, but can you use Dropbox or iCloud as an intermediary?

    That is exactly what i'm doing and works perfectly. I just export my files to icloud and then i can upload them easily whatever i want.

    I use Documents by Readdle. There is a toggle to enable it on the document picker, so when you press the upload button, instead of only seeing your photo album and iCloud, you also see Documents and can choose any files you have stored there. Then I have all my cloud storage accounts accessible from Documents. So I can easily copy a file down from the cloud to Documents and then upload it to a website just like I would do on a mac or pc.

    Export it to iCloud Drive. Then pick that when uploading to the site. iCloud Drive seems to be a permanent option to pick a file from, in addition to photo albums, in my use case anyway. I've uploaded many documents this way.

    You need an app with Document Provider feature, like mentioned Documents by Readde. When choosing file from iCloud Drive, try to tap on "Locations" in top left corner of pop-up window and enable Documents by Readdle. Now you can upload any file :)

    Sorry the "Computer replacement" is letting you down on the most simple of tasks. Hopefully Apple will allow us to perform the most simple of computer tasks, with this "Computer replacement", in the not too distant future.

    Good Luck!

    This functionality already exists. When you tap Upload, you should see iCloud Drive and any other apps that act as Document providers. IMG_0747.PNG
