Apple to Sell 28 Million iPads in 2011

UBS Investment Research analyst, Maynard Um sent out a note to investors this week raising the price target for Apple stock to $350, up from $340.  He also sees 28 million iPads being sold in 2011.

That is a lot of iPads, especially for a product that is only 6 months old.  The thing is though, we don’t think their estimate it is too far fetched.  iPods and iPhones have paved the road ahead with consumer confidence and brand appeal for Apple’s shiny newest gadget.  In addition, people already know how to use iOS from using their iTouchs and iPhones.  They can easily and without worry, “slip into” using an iPad with zero learning curve.

The current numbers also support that this estimate isn’t even that big of a jump.  Lets say now they are selling just over 1 million per month (which they already are).  With distribution in new countries coming on line and relief of production bottlenecks it should be no problem for them to double their current run rate.

Um also cautioned that the 28 million estimate could be conservative.   Either way, Apple has a hit on their hands with the iPad, it is indeed a game changing device.

If you haven’t tried the GoAruna iPad File manager yet, get on over to the iTunes store and give it a whirl.  It is free and it is the best file manager for iPad and the best cloud storage app out there.

p.s. – The next version of GoAruna Files for iPad is finished and coming very soon.  We will let you know when it goes live in the Apple iPad app store.

iPad File Management with GoAruna – New Release

Our latest version of our iPad File Manager, GoAruna Files for iPad was approved and now available from the iPad app store (iTunes).

In this version v1.0.6, we have added three new ways to get files to and from your iPad.

1. Upload by Email.  You now have a unique GoAruna “upload by email address”.  You can send a file as an email attachment to this address and it will be automatically sent to your GoAruna Inbox.  You then can access the file from any device.  We suggest that you save this address in your address books on all of your devices and computers, then you can quickly upload files just by sending an email from any working email account on any device.

Web Downloads
2. Download by URL.  If you know the exact URL for a file on the Internet, you can use this function to download it to your iPad by just entering the URL.    
3. Browse to download.  Currently, the built-in iPad browser, Safari, does not allow downloads.  With GoAruna Browse to Download, you have a special browser that WILL allow downloads from any web site.  Just as you would on your desktop, browse to the page and click the file that you want to download.  The file will be downloaded to your iPad.

We have also simplified the menu for you.  Now you will have a “Transfers” section in the main menu.  Here you can easily access several download and upload functions that GoAruna for iPad has to offer.  We will be adding and improving this section more in the coming months.

Folders.  Finally, you can now organize your iPad files within GoAruna by creating folders and then copying and moving files around as you wish.

1.  Now you can save video from GoAruna to your iPad Photo Library
2.  Upload video clips to GoAruna from iPad Photo Library.  If you have videos saved in your iPad Photo Library, you can now select portions of video (or clips) and upload the new shorter clip to your GoAruna Online Storage.  Note, that apps do not have access to the iPad Video Library, so you can only do this if you save your video to the Photo Library.

This release also brings improved image thumbnail logic and display and also an improved information section.

We hope you find these improvements useful!

Tomorrow, May 28, 2010 is an exciting day for many.  Apple will be releasing iPad to 8 more countries tomorrow and we welcome all you new iPad users to try GoAruna.  We want you to be able to manage your iPad files in your language.  GoAruna Files for iPad is already available for you in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.

Making iPad File Management Easier

Our goal of providing you with the best iPad file management and storage app has progressed one more step today.  Version 1.0.5 of GoAruna Files for iPad went live in the iTunes store today with three more ways to work with files on your iPad.

iTunes File Sharing
Now you can transfer files between your computer and GoAruna Files for iPad through iTunes.  Just connect your iPad with the USB cable to your computer and you can easily copy files both ways, computer to iPad and iPad to computer.

Import Files by Email
Just send a file to your email account that is set up on your iPad.  Open the email on iPad and click and hold (long click) the attachment in the email.  A menu will pop up, select “open in” > GoAruna and the file will be copied to GoAruna Files for iPad.  Now you can open, view, upload it to your GoAruna online storage and even send the file to other supported iPad apps.

Open Files from Other iPad Apps
Just like the email “open in” function, you can now open / copy files to GoAruna Files for iPad from your other iPad apps.  The other app must support the “open in” function however.  If it supports “open in”, it works the same as with the Import Files by Email function above.  The file residing in the other App will be opened and copied to your local iPad files within GoAruna for iPad.

In addition to these new methods to upload iPad files with GoAruna, there are several other ways to get files to your iPad.

- GoAruna Inbox.  Every GoAruna account has a dedicated Inbox.  It is a unique web address where you or others can upload files from a web page.  The uploaded files will go into your GoAruna Inbox and you can then log into GoAruna Files for iPad and download the file to your iPad.
GoAruna web.  Easily upload files through your web based GoAruna account at
GoAruna desktop.  Use our Windows, Mac and Linux native desktop apps to copy multiple files and folders easily to your GoAruna account, then download as needed with GoAruna Files for iPad.
GoAruna mobile.  Of course you can also use our iPhone, Android and other mobile apps to upload files to your GoAruna account.

There are more details about these methods and features in our iPad Files FAQ,

We hope you find the new release and new methods for working with your iPad files helpful.  We have more improvements and features lined up for you in the next weeks and months.  We also have even more ways for you to get files to your iPad in development and coming soon.  Stay tuned !
