Welcome to the world of iPad!
The iPad hit the international scene on May 28th. As of that morning, many units were appearing around campus and in offices of Information Technology staffers. Embracing the new tech, we've added the iPad to our blog.
The expanded screen area of the iPad has added to the easy-to-use interface that iPhone and iPod touch users have enjoyed for some time. Many of your favorite applications have be re-released to accommodate the increased resolution.
One of the updated applications is GoodReader. At $.99, the application provides a lot of processing punch without a heavy hit in the wallet.
Within moments of downloading GoodReader, you'll be transferring files directly from your computer over a Wi-Fi connection, from the Internet or from email attachments. It also easily integrates with MobileMe iDisk, box.net, MyDisk.se and other popular WebDAV servers, and also with non-WebDAV services like Google Docs and Dropbox.
For UofS users, you can connect to network drives like Folder or Cabinet. To Connect type the following into the WebDAV settings in GoodReader: https://webshare.usask.ca/cabinet/abc123
Be sure to add your NSID in place of abc123.
