Have you ever wanted to quickly dive into your Digitalbucket.net account from your iPad or iPhone and tweak a document using an editor such as iWork Pages? It’s easy – all you need is a Digitalbucket.net Business account and the latest version of the iWork apps. The iWork apps are some of the best apps for iPad or iPhone, and each show just how powerful a touchscreen device can be for creating and editing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
You can import any document from your Digitalbucket.net account by using the + button at the top left of an iWork app, and clicking WebDAV. Simply enter http://dav.digitalbucket.net into the server address, and then enter your Digitalbucket.net username and password:
Now, the app will connect to your digitalbucket.net account. Seconds later, you’ll see all of your folders listed. Browse to the file you want to edit, and then tap it to download the file to your device.
Here’s the format that each iWork app supports, from the Apple iWork for iPad support site:
iWork App Importable File Types
Keynote .key .ppt .pptx .pps .ppsx --- --- ---
Pages .pages .doc .docx .dotx .txt --- --- ---
Numbers .numbers .xls .xlsx .xlt .xltx .xlsm .xla .csv
Most files open great once they are imported, though you may see warnings about any parts of the documents that aren’t supported. You may have to tweak documents a bit to work best across platforms, but for the most part it’s seamless working with documents from any common Office app.
When you’re done editing simply click on the tools button at the top right of the screen and select Share and Print. You’ll see Copy to WebDAV option. Select where you want to save the file back to your Digitalbucket.net, and click on Done. Your iWork app will then convert your document to the correct format and upload it to the server.
Once it’s uploaded, though, it is instantly accessible from anywhere using a range of supported interfaces such as a web browser, mapped drive, and mobile devices.
And that’s it! Your updated file will be saved back to your Digitalbucket.net account, synced between all of your PCs and available from anywhere.
