I have a ipad 2 that I like using on service calls because of it's size. I use it to google problems and to log into a sight that has limited service manuals.

1 problem I'm running into is I need to be able to access more manuals quickly from my ipad. I have manuals on my laptop which I don't like to carry on the truck, I  have more manuals on my desktop. What I'd really like to do it get them all together and be able to access them all from my Ipad without having to spend alot of money.

Also, I can't set up files like I can on a normal pc. I'd like to have a folder that says, Manuals that you open and has sub folders that I can labels for different manual types.

The bottom lines is I don't know what I need to get there or even if it's possible.

So... was hoping someone alittle more computer savvy could tell me what I needed, or just easier to carry the laptop along with the ipad. Wish ipad just has a usb port you could plug into it. Then I could plug storage device into it.

Dropbox your manuals and Evernote posts and other web info you find useful. I have my dropbox folders organized by manufacturer. With evernote you can search by content. I pull up a manual from dropbox to find, let's say GE thermistor testing ....scroll to the page I need or search evernote for "thermistor test" and voila, there's a post I saved from one of the great masters here walking me through the procedure. Just in case I wind up at a customer's house where I can't receive the internet, I download the info from dropbox and save evernote info for offline reading the night before I go to a repair. And best of all, they are either free or very inexpensive if need lots of gigs.
