"Open other" feature not working
April 18, 2013

I downloaded the free version of dropcopy to try, and successfully transferred an audio file from my mac to my ipad. I could listen to the file via the "preview" option within dropcopy, but it stopped playing when I closed the application. So I tried to use the "open in" option to transfer the file to another app so I could listen in the background. The file would not open in any other app, such as AVPlayerHD.

Can you please advise what apps dropcopy is compatible with to transfer files, or if there is a way to keep files playing in preview when dropcopy is closed? Because otherwise dropcopy is pretty useless to me, I can easily transfer files from my computer, whoch is great, but then I cannot listen to them in the background while doing something else on my ipad.

impossible for us to list all the compatible apps as that list changes every day. Images and videos can be transferred to the camera roll, but audio is a bit more complicated as we have very limited access to the iTunes library (presumable because Apple had to agree to many concessions in order to appease the music labels)
