can I add a shared network folder to an ipad?

hi experts,

  I have an ipad and I wanted to add a network share folder that I have lots of pictures in. This folder is sitting on a server. Can it be added to the desktop of the ipad?

Try looking for NetPortal or FileBrowser on the Apps store.  Either of these should allow you to access files on a shared drive.

Hi frankbustos,

Not easily.  What you can do, though, is add that network share folder to iTunes as a location where you have photos and the next time you sync your iPad it will import the photos from that folder into the Photos app.

I am sure there are various backdoor ways to do it.  I will confess and say I don't know any of them.  So being the Apps are easy to use, easy to install, and have support associated with them.   Yes, the Apps are the only good way to do it.
