I was pretty stoked when I realized that I could connect my iPad to the Dalhousie G drive. I already use dropbox so I am not in dire need of document sharing, but the Gdrive can be easier to use on campus. I thought I would share how to do it and in the spirit of seeing what else this iPad can do I decided to make the tutorial screen shot, write it up and post it from here as well.
So here we go.
To connect to your Dalhousie Gdrive from your iPad using goodreader.
Click on the “connect to servers” button
