iPad File Explorer lets you navigate your iOS's device file system. It is one of those apps that you must have if you are an iOS user. It supports iPads, iPhones and the iPod Touch lineup. The app displays the storage folders on your device. There is an option to access the Device's file system, but the button was disabled. The main difference between the device file system and the storage folder is that you can't really find all of the files that you might need by only accessing the storage folders. On the other hand, if you are not able to access your phone's root, then you can't break it.
Generally, I use this type of applications to upload my pictures and videos from my phone to share them or for storage. You can do that by finding the DCIM folder and then clicking on 100Apple. All your media files will be there. You can then select them and copy them to a folder on your Mac. I wasn't able to preview files within the application, so you have to copy the files first, which isn't really a big deal.
I think I might have seen this app on a Mac, and both versions work equally as well.
- It works well.
- It gives you access to your device's storage.
- No access to root.
