I'm going to be traveling a lot this spring (grumble, grumble) and I'm planning on taking my iPad instead of a laptop on some of the trips. This poses the question of how to easily access my work files using an iPad. Unfortunately, I don't have room on my iPad for all the files and, of course, there's the little problem of not having a useful file manager. (BTW, any advice on choosing a file manager app?)
I'm guessing the easiest thing to do would be to open a Dropbox account, sync my work files with Dropbox, and use the Dropbox app to access the files I need on the road. I understand you can download the files to edit on your iPad although not upload them back to Dropbox. Right? In any case, I'm open to alternate suggestions.
On a related note, I've been told that TSA has changed its policy and is now making people remove the iPad from their briefcase when going through security. True?
And, yes, for those who know me well, I am dreading going back on the road. I hate flying. I hate hotels. It's going to suck.
