Best Free File Transfer for iPad

Oh, I hate to see "Candy Crush Saga", or ANY Game by "King" for that matter, listed as a "Free Game" when they are cleverly designed to Make you PAY for virtual Items - power ups like "Gummy Fish" for instance - without which you can't advance very quickly, if at all! I refuse to even start on games that require you to buy intangibles in order to compete with the long time players who already have them! I have better things to spend cash on, like, say: a Gizmos T-Shirt or Cap (hint, hint.)

I'll tell you about a GOOD Free "Swap to make 3-in-a-row" game that runs a lot longer than "King" Branded games & doesn't have any required in game purchases: it's called "Moon Jewels".

Regarding Wi-Fi Finder. It was developed by a company who changed their name back in June 2014 and is strictly a marketing company. The app has not been updated for almost 2 years. It has some wifi hotspots but is missing several national chains here. Also there are some errors in the current database and no way of correcting the locations of the incorrect HotSpots

I don't understand why there are no free antivirus programs for ipad. Is there a built in antivirus or what. With the millions of ipad's being used there must be many viruses trying to get in.

The great thing about this site is not just the recommendations, but the comments that the community provides. I do not find it "negative", instead, I see it as a true marketplace of ideas, and reading through the comments is a necessity for each app suggestion.

It's upsetting to see so many negative comments here.
This site is run by volunteers who do a great job.
Sure, no one knows everything, but they are doing their best.
The knockers are always the ones that do nothing to help.
How about making constructive suggestions instead of of knocking them.

Words with friends
Great but have trouble signing in too offen

Coast browser, simply the best...

I think this should be broken down into more categories. Best iPad apps is too general. There should be top puzzle games, top action games, top utility apps, top fitness apps etc.

I totally agree I got into an online debate of how ipad apps need more vraitey and different catoriges to find stuff like top puzzles and brain teasers it's stupid how the whole thing is set up!

A good suggestion picabloo. Click a page number and you will find more categories listed on other pages.

Stanza is not currently available for the U.S. market. I couldn't find the app in the App Store. When trying to get to the app through the link above, I was given the message about it not being available in the U.S. Thanks, nonetheless, for the many helpful recommendations.

The review crew might dig a little harder. FileMaster is superior to FileApp in several very obvious ways, one being it needs no special wads of software to be installed on the other devices & its a LITTLE more intuitive and pretty fast. Both are unimaginative vs the best 3 in the Droid field and its not strictly an issue of closed/open. An unrooted 'droid has limitations also. The IOS-centric dev seems to think that users only need very narrowly-limited networking, the default being to a Cloud service. IMHO that's a mistaken view. The 'droid dev community treats "all of the above" as potential sharing partners; LAN, WAN, Cloud, NFC, et al. and uses a term approach to connectivity: if you have credentials, you can drive the action from the handheld

FileApp? you gotta be kidding. compare this pig to ES File Explorer for android. the latter is a useful app.
FileMaster is a little better than FileApp, but neither are very good.

if anyone smarter knows of a REAL file management app, cross-device, cross-platform, for iPAD, please suggest to the Editors!

Unfortunately Cognus this is restricted by the iOS which is known as a walled garden and doesn't allow complete access to the filesystem like the Android OS. Moreover, the iOS confines each app to working within a restricted sandbox where it has complete control over its files. Due to this, not a file manager for iOS will work the same way as a file manager for Android. See also: Apple and the file system

I am little surprised that you are missing Wunderlist as a ToDo app. It is fantastic. It is web based and cross platform. Works on all my devices and computers. It also has a beautiful iPad interface.

Another app you seemed to forget about is [edited: commercial app]. This is now my preferred method for blogging.

Oh, yeah and Splashtop for remote control in computers.

Browsers to consider - Mercury Browser is fantastic. Finally Puffin Browser allows flash.
