I'm searching for an iOS app (for iPad) that lets me set up folders/sub folders on my computer, and then syncs and stores them (along with their content) on my iPad (and not my computer).

I have used fileshare, and cinex, which both allow me to store data/files/folders on iPad, but whats missing is my ability to create folders on the computer.

e.g. I have cinex open in itunes, I drag a file (say an .mp4) into the app, and it is then available on my iPad (and stored there)-after syncing, of course. If I want to place that movie/file in a folder, or sub-folder, I am limited to creating that folder ON the iPad, where I want to set up a bunch of folders on my computer, but keep the media stored on the iPad, and not the computer (I don't want to use dropbox for this either).

Thoughts?

Thanks.

You might give TeamViewer for iOS a try. It should allow you to setup folders on your Mac or PC. The syncing of them to your iPad is another matter though as I'm not sure how you would accomplish that. TeamViewer for personal use is free.

What is the reason for not wanting to use DropBox?

I don't want to use drop box because there would be scenarios where I would want to access these files when I was offline. This wouldn't be a problem if I was accessing these files on my computer (since the files would be stored locally), but with the mobile versions of drop box, you need to be online to access the files-which is why the apps I mention work (because they store files on the mobile device) but again, I have no ability to set folders up elsewhere (not on the mobile platform).

mark your files as favourites in the Dropbox app and they are stored locally on your iDevice for offline use

Well Chas, thanks for an absolutely worthless comment - a huge help that was. Sounds like you know a lot about tools. You've got no idea what and why I would be searching for an app like this, so please don't suggest the "right" way to do it.

And Mr. Plow, thanks, I'll give that a shot.

You may have a different solution now but . . . Box.com (google around and you can bag a 50gb free account) offers a similar service to dropbox but their app allows folders to be marked as favourites not just files.
