    Hi all i bought Buzz HD player which is great for playing all kinds of video files, streamed from my pc and or transfer and copy them locally to the ipad from the pc. i noticed i can see all the files on my pc from the ipad but it doesnt handle other files like docs or jpgs.

    is there an app that will allow me to browse my computer files and transfer them over wifi to the ipad then and use them? videos, jpg, docs etc etc etc

    thanks!!

    downloads are currently disabled but ZumoCast will do what you want.

    edit:

    ah, ZumoCast will not do what you want :(

    There's an app called Here, File File! that does exactly that. It's an iPhone app but it works on the iPad and it's going to have a free upgrade soon that will make it Universal.

    EDIT: nevermind, it only works on Macs.

    I use an app called FileBrowser. Does the trick for me.
