FileBrowser for Education provides ways to get to your content quickly and easily, allows you to share content between apps, and provides the bridge between your apps and your file servers.
If your document editing app supports the iOS Document Picker FileBrowser for Education's In-Place editing feature is the easiest way to edit files on a file server.
The iOS 'Share File...' mechanism passes a copy of a file from one app to another. Invoking Share File within an app displays a popup window listing all apps that have registered with iOS as being able to accept files of this type. The benefit of Share File is that it is easy to use. A downside of it is that a copy of the document/file is made in the target app and this can lead to proliferation and confusion.
For one-tap access to a folder from the iOS desktop, FileBrowser for Education provides Home Screen icons. To create a Home Screen icon tap the Action Menu icon at the bottom of the screen in a folder, choose "Create a Folder Link" and in the popup window select "Add to Home Screen" and follow the instructions. Home Screen icons may be arranged into groups just like App icons.
FileBrowser for Education may be launched via a link in an email or web page. This can be useful for directing people to a particular folder. To create a URL that may be used within an email tap the Action Menu icon at the bottom of the screen in a folder and choose "Create a Folder Link". From the popup window select "Copy FileBrowser Edu URL" and paste this into an email. When the recipient of the email taps on the link and chooses FileBrowser from the list of apps, they will be connected to the server and automatically navigated to the folder. They will need to login with their username/password, as this feature doesn't bypass any file server folder security.
