Wi-Fi panic attack! No wireless connection but in immediate need to view a file? Good news! Whether you are on a flight or at a remote location where you have no 3G network, with a little advanced planning, you can still view files offline from your ElephantDrive Everywhere folder via our iOS app.
Now, let us get started – as long as you already have an ElephantDrive account (Need a free one? Sign up at http://home.elephantdrive.com/plans-and-pricing/free-plans/), we are only a few clicks away!
Step 1: Install the ElephantDrive iOS app on your iPhone/iPad. We can be found in your app store or at this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/elephantdrive/id637645058
Step 2: Open your ElephantDrive iOS app. You will see your ElephantDrive Home Screen (as the image below on the left). Sign in, go to the Everywhere folder, click on the arrow on the right of the file that you’d like to access offline (as the image below on the right).
The arrow looks like this:
Step 3: Once you clicked into the arrow, you will see the Details View of the specific file that you want to view offline. Swipe to turn on “Available Offline” (as the image below on the left). You can view all the files that have been made to be Available Offline by clicking on the “Download” button and you will be able to see what files you have made available for offline viewing and access them from there when you are disconnected from network connections.
So now you are able to view these files offline anywhere! One thing to remember is that when the file is made Available Offline, it is downloaded onto the device where you set the file to be available for viewing offline. That means if you turned on the Available Offline feature on your iPhone and you want to also be able to view the same files offline on your iPad, you will have to turn the feature on for those files on your iPad as well.
