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.

Download the GoAruna Files for iPad file manager from iTunes.

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 !

If you don’t have GoAruna Files for iPad yet, you can download it for free in the Apple iTunes app store.

This release brings the following changes and improvements:

GoAruna Files for iPad v1.0.4

  • - Added “open item in other app” function for .txt .rtf, .numbers, .pages, .key, pdf.  Click and hold action will activate this menu (this was already implemented in v1.0.3 for .doc, .xls & .ppt files)
  • - Single clicking an item in Internet files now opens a new Item Details screen.
  • - New Internet files Details screen has functions to Download & View, Send, display the shared item’s URL and also adds the ability to share and unshare items.

Now GoAruna Files for iPad is available in 7 languages.  Languages for GoAruna Files for iPad are set based on your main iPad OS language.  So for example if your iPad is set to French, GoAruna Files will automatically be in French.  Obviously it only works for languages we support.  You can see a list of supported languages on the GoAruna Files for iPad page or in our iPad files FAQ.
Also a note about the Korean translation.  Currently iPad does not support Korean for the main iPad language.  When Apple enables Korean for the iPad OS language, you will get Korean in GoAruna automatically at that time (if your OS is set to Korean).

File Manager for iPad – Update Released

The vast majority of iPad developers were in the same position with only a very select few top Apple developers getting an actual iPad before launch day.  We had to decide whether to launch GoAruna Files for iPad early with testing completed only on the iPad simulator.  We decided to release early and our iPad file manager went live into the store at the same time our actual physical iPad was arriving.

After testing on the real physical iPad we found a couple of bugs that could only be seen on the real device.  Our team has done a great job in getting them fixed and the update release v1.0.1 went live in the iTunes store yesterday.  Everyone that has v1.0 is advised to upgrade.

Now that the app is stable and the base functions are working well, the team here is hard at work to improve even more and add some more features.  Since getting to play around and test on the real iPad we have a bunch of new ideas for improvement of both features and UI.  We will be working on and releasing frequent updates to our iPad file manager over the coming months.  The next version should be in a week or so and we will post here once it is approved for sale in the iTunes store.

Here is the iTunes link for GoAruna Files for iPad.  If you haven’t downloaded it yet, go grab it, it is free.

GoAruna launches iPad File Management App – GoAruna Files for iPad

The Apple iPad. We have been bombarded in the news about it for months now with rumours and speculation on just how good, or bad this new “wonder slate” from Apple would be. There was talk on how the device would revolutionize the way we interact with computers, the Internet, content and apps. Could the hype be believed?

On April 3, 2010, the iPad launched to the public in the United States. 300,000 iPads were sold the first day and almost half a million the first week. This is a pretty good validation by the public. In addition, words like “awesome”, “magic” were coming from almost every professional reviewer at the top blogs, websites and publications that reviewed the device.

We here at GoAruna are also believers in Apple’s new platform. Our design and development team have been working hard on the GoAruna file management and sharing app for iPad and we are happy to announce our first version.

GoAruna Files for iPad

The iPad is truly a joy to use and as good as “they” say. The touch interface and larger screen format open up new opportunities to simplify the way we work and play with our content and media. We are excited to be a part of these changes and want to bring you the best file manager, file sharing, media viewing and management experience for the iPad.

iPad also joins our stable of other mobile apps (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Win Mobile, Symbian) in helping to make sure that you always have access to your content and files where ever you go. We also want to make it easier for you to interact, view and share your files anytime you need, whatever platform you are on at the time the need arises. The iPad platform along with our commitment to developing innovating file and content solutions for you will be a great asset to help with our goals to make your life easier.

For an early look, GoAruna Files for iPad is available now in the Apple iPad app store. It is a free download as our other mobile file sharing apps are.  We have decided to maintain two separate apps for the Apple platform.  One is for the iPhone / iTouch and another separate app for iPad.  They are easily recognized in the iTunes store so no worries about downloading the wrong one.

Over the coming weeks and months you will see many changes and improvements with the iPad version of GoAruna. Most of the design and development took place without our team even setting eyes (or hands) on an actual iPad. Since getting our iPads however, we have many new ideas and improvements to share with you.

We will be posting more iPad info here on our blog and will also be creating a specific iPad feedback forum. As usual, we appreciate your input and feedback and we look forward to hear your comments on GoAruna Files for iPad and any part of our service.
