Paul Meranda ,

Wonderfully Useful Application!

With my computer down and having only my iPad at my disposal, the discovery of Filer Lite has been incredibly beneficial to me, offering a great variety of options for accessing files on the mobile device, many of which I'd have thought impossible considering Apple's mobile file sharing limitations. Besides greatly assisting with general file downloading from nearly anywhere online, combining the Filer app with services such as Seedr makes even P2P sharing a total breeze! Thank you SO much to the devs of Filer & Filer Lite for making my life a whole lot easier when I really needed it the most!

Agree with Paul

I also use filer with seedr. It really makes P2P so easy on my iPhone.

Works great!!!

I had one simple objective. I'm going to the lake where I don't have Internet access. I expect to get some attachments emailed to me for work and I need to get them on my laptop. I do have cell coverage. I wanted to be able to download an attachment to my iPhone and copy it to my laptop. For that this application worked amazingly well and was easy to set up.

1) Create an ad hoc WiFi network on my Vista laptop.
2) Use the DL Lite built-in browser to log into my GMail account and navigate to the email with the attachment.
3) Switch from browse mode to download mode in DL Lite and select the attachment link. At first it looks like it didn't do anything but if you switch to the Downloads page you will see it downloading. Or, if it already downloaded, it will be listed on the Files tab.
4) Go to the Settings tab and enable sharing.
5) Using the browser on my laptop I entered the URL provided by DL Lite when I enabled sharing.
6) You see a simple web page where you can click on the file links to download to your laptop.

All in all this is exactly what I wanted and all the other apps out there cost lots of money or didn't seem to work well from the reviews. Or, both. I can confirm that this app did exactly what I needed.
