How to transfer files to iSilo™ for iPhone OS using Yahoo! Briefcase
- As before, when the download completes, iSilo™ asks
whether we want to open the just downloaded file. We select No
again and are thus returned back to the Download view, where we tap
Back in the navigation bar to return to the document list view,
where we then tap the Downloads line to enter the folder where we
downloaded the two files and see the two downloaded files listed.

- In general, downloading from a web server will only work if the web
server provides a direct link to the file and the last portion of the
URL contains the extension .pdb, .prc, or .txt. If the web server
provides an indirect link to the file, then the download will likely
not work. Many free online storage sites that use indirect links
will not work, so please be aware of this fact.
- If the file will take a while to download, then the device may
enter standby mode to conserve battery power if there is no user
interaction. If the device goes into standby mode in the middle
of a download, the download will not complete and you will have
to start the download over again. So if the screen begins to dim
while a file downloads, touch the screen to bring the device back
to the full on state.
- iSilo™ also supports the downloading and unzipping
of zip files that do not require a password. If the files in the
zip file have a directory structure, the directory structure
is also maintained when the files are unzipped. This allows you
to more easily upload and download a whole collection of files
instead of having to upload and download each file individually.
