iOS 6

For those of you who have recently upgraded to iOS 6, there are sometimes problems with sending files to other apps.  Folder 1.3 has been submitted to fix this issue and is waiting for approval.  Please let me know if you have questions or comments.  Thanks for using Folder!

Still here

Things have been quiet on the Folder front lately.  That's a good thing!  It means Folder is working for people.

For those who use Folder for playing media there will be an update that deals with this in the coming months.

Additionally, the number one comment is how to share files with Folder.  To help new users here is a youtube video that shows you how to do this with iTunes.  (You need to have your device connected to any computer with iTunes, not just the one you sync with)

Dropbox support

I've looked into dropbox a bit and can't seem to find a compelling reason to add support for this.  Dropbox has their own app which allows you to interface with your dropbox, and you can easily send files from their app to Folder if you want to preview, email, make a copy, etc.  It's not a technical reason, I am happy to do this if someone gives me a good reason to do so that dropbox won't already cover.  So if that's you, drop me an email or comment here and let me know!

This goes for other feature requests as well.  Thanks for using folder!

iOS 4.2 and Folder

Just a quick note to let you know that I am still here.  I've done some testing with Folder on the new iOS and things seem to be going well.  Any document that can be previewed is likely to be able to be printed as well without an update.  I won't promise it as soon as you install the new iOS, but from initial testing this appears to be the case.

Additionally I am looking at a dropbox access option for Folder.  I won't promise a timeline, but I've started the coding process on this.

Thanks for using Folder!

Folder Lite Available

Folder lite is now available to download.  I was unable to take certain screenshots of the app before release as I didn't have access to real iAds.  However, here are a few in addition to the screenshots available on the store.

Once again, for those who are new, take a look at this post if you're wondering how to get files into Folder.

Additionally as a reminder, Folder and Folder Lite can be used with any computer that has iTunes on it, not just the computer you sync with normally.

Enjoy!

Addressing confusion

I have had several reviews lately that have complained that they cannot figure out how folder works.  I am posting a link to an april blog post that discusses this for anyone who may be new or confused about folder.

I have resisted putting a help button in Folder as it seems like it's a one-time learning curve, once you know where in iTunes to go to exchange files it seems obvious.  I could add a built-in PDF that acts as a help file or something.  Does anyone have any opinions on this?  Is Folder confusing to use at first and would this be helpful?

Folder Lite resubmitted

Just a heads up to those who are waiting for Folder Lite.  I have resubmitted the app today.  It was previously rejected because apple apparently doesn't allow for blank ad banners in your app, so I had to hide the banner when ads were not being served.  They also didn't like me using their test ads in my screenshots, so I had to change those as well.

My apologies for the delay, I have been out of town for almost a week and the rejection was right before I left.

I should also note for any iPad hopefuls out there, folder lite will only support iOS 4.0, which means it won't be available for the iPad until it gets an OS update.  (No ads on the iPad yet, so I can't make it ad supported)

I hope you all are enjoying the 1.2.2 update!
