Recommended File Manager w/ Affinity Photo iPad


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

apologies if this has been asked before, a quick search revealed nothing. I recently downloaded the Affinity Photo app for iPad and am still looking for a reasonable way to access my photos stored on a western digital mycloud. I tried Filebrowser Go and while it handily gave access to the cloud itself it wasn't possible to access files with RAW photos in it. Even more surprising, although one could access "copy to affinity photo" natively in Filebrowser Go the pic would not open. Is there a different file browser people might recommend?

Kind regards

Daniel

Just to be more precise. I cannot open any images, be it jpg or nef in Affinity photo for iPad. When I try to open it out of native filebrowser (via "open/copy to Photo") the iPad will jump to Photo but nothing happens. 

Opening from Affinity Photo doesn't work either, since I can't access thumbnail images on the WD mycloud. I would have to download images first to check which image it is. 

 

Could it be a bug in the iPad version? Should I re-download it?

I use Documents by Readdle. Free and very useful file management tool. A combination of ios11 Files app, Documents and AP seems to handle most situations. Documents can also access cloud storage and the WD wireless pro drive as well as your network drives. You can also browse files in Documents and open in AP from Documents.

The latest beta of AP has a much improved iOS Files app interface, but there are still a few bugs associated with Cloud storage such as Dropbox. ICloud works perfectly.

There is also a new firmware for the MyPassport Wireless Pro. Improved copying of file (now includes a time stamp check). Copy all now creates a new folder for each sdcard and so on.
