What you missed is that I already have storage that can be accessed with an internet Connection/Cell Phone Connection. It's my NAS and it's Free and I have 9TB.
I want files to reside on my Phone that require no external connection. This is a major shortcoming and can be done with a couple mouse clicks on Android. Unacceptable for me!
there is an app I bought at one point for my iPad, a SMB file manager (to access NAS), it costs some $$$, if your interested I can check my ipad store and figure out what the name of it was when I had it installed. if it is still on apple app store I can try to give you the name of it.
BH --- Again, I have no trouble accessing my NAS with an App provided by Synology.
The Problem is that you have to have an internet/phone connection to use it.
SOMETIMES, I DON"T HAVE A CONNECTION !!
I misread, can't you copy the files over to your documents in your iphone then with the Synology NAS app? Assuming you have WiFi now can't you just copy everything over? copy-paste?
Please tell me how! ---- I tried.
that's why I mentioned the SMB file manager app I used. It might be $5, let me see if I can find the name of it, it was rather good.
I'll chime back here.
This is what it was called:
it is $5.99
Yes, their reason is "security" the same type of guys who go to Bilderberg meetings, sure.
As a thought just a thought, I think cell phones are tracking devices, when I did carry one around I used a metal mesh holder for it to block the NSA.
Regardless, if you are a fundamentalist stick with Android. Either google or open source releases.
Again, I like the Pixel line of phones.
Yup, I use a Phone more of a 'Palm top Computer'.... I rarely make or receive calls.... I never Text -- Always e-mail , that way I can pick up the communication from any device I have. Whether, Desktop, Laptop, Pad or Phone.
I have proven to myself today that I am an Android Guy.... I will look at the Pixel Phones.... I would like a Better Camera and Camera Software, Better Display, Faster etc.
I had no idea that Apple did not allow access to Files. That's the first thing I do when I get a computer, Figure out how to Manage Files, Store, Copy, Retrieve, Search, delete etc......
Yes, same way here, here's the pixel phone. Google makes it.
But, I am a little gun shy now, as such a Basic Function does not come with the Standard O/S.... It does in Android...
It's like Apple does not want you to get at their files..... Even worse, is if they don't want you to get at your files, will an App come down the pike that 'upends' the File Browser App. ---
File Access of a computer is about the most basic App that you need. Whether Desktop, Laptop or Palmtop (Phone)
I usually would agree, but from using iOS on the iPad for many years, it is all worth it, and as a warning you do get "dumber" as you use the Apple stuff. I bought a Macbook pro a few months ago, it after a couple of months I still don't know how to use it, they say I should go to a class for how to use it.
supposed to be very easy if you get it, it does take awhile to get used to iOS because it is natural interface, not technical like I gather both of us are used to.
I only use apple stuff. For both home and work. Except for my Roon server which I guess is Linux.
I was forced to switch to a Windows laptop years ago at work and I was miserable. I despised every second of its ugly existence.
My book keeper is strictly Windows. I sent her an iPad because she needs to see whats going on with our POS software. She refuses to use it. Says it makes no sense. I'm baffled.
Its just what you are used to. Once you are in the Apple architecture almost everything isa no brainer. I honestly don't even understand your problem. All my contacts reside only phone. As do my photos and music. I use gmail but thats the only thing I need an internet connection for.
