To be the most successful person that one can possibly be, getting organized seems to be the first step.  With iExplorer, taking that step just gets easier by the minute.


iExplorer (HD) is an application that allows a user to basically view and manage files on their servers.  This is not just on the iphone, but in the office, at home and virtually anywhere possible!  The app does not just simply manage files though, because the user can play music, read books and do a whole lot more.


The interface that the user will see upon opening the app is very simple and approachable, which really does matter when dealing with the daunting task of becoming organized; this is called the Home Screen.


On the Home Screen, the user will see a + sign in the top left corner.  This button is to add servers so that the user can add files easily.  Upon clicking this + sign, the add server mini menu will pop up.  From here, the user chooses whether it is a cloud server, FTP server or a Windows Network Server. 


If the user chooses a Windows Network Server, they can manually add it, or search is from LAN.  If the user choose Cloud Server, they are brought to a menu indicating servers that they have to choose from including but not limited to the following: WebDAV Servers, SkyDrive, DropBox, and more.  After choosing the server from that menu, they enter the information in and it is saved to the application. 


Back at the home screen, the user will then see that the servers that they chose, are now indicated right under the “Local” folder that will be discussed next.


The “Local” folder is the main folder on the main screen.  This folder is where the user will add files and remove them and where they can create their own files as well. 


On the main screen also is the settings button.  This button does things like allow the user to share it with friends, send feedback, and visit the website.  Not only this but there are general settings like whether or not to show all files, encoding information, device orientation, and the optimize CHM viewer.  All the previous mentioned were settings for files but there are also settings for photos and slideshows, as well as videos and the cache.


At the bottom of the screen is the file queue.  If there are transfer tasks, this is where they will be located and if necessary the user can delete them.  Of course also on the main screen, the user can get help with the app whether it is general or specific.


What are you waiting for?  Get excited, and get organized!  Check it out in the app store here, today!
