12.1.3 Using Files, Mail and other Apps

NeoFinder iOS is nicely integrated into the “Open with” feature of many iOS apps, like Files, Mail, or GoodReader, or even the Dropbox app.

This requires that the catalog files have a name suffix of either “.neofinder”, “.neofinder7”, “.cdw”, or “.abemeda7”, so iOS knows that NeoFinder can open these files.

If you have older catalog files without a name suffix, you can simply rename them on your computer before transferring them.

As seen here, just tap on the attached catalog file to a mail message in, and then select “Open in NeoFinder” in the dialog that shows up then.


This of course will also work fine for emails sent to you from Microsoft Windows, so you can send your abeMeda for Windows catalog files as well.

Please note that iOS has a serious bug here: If you select multiple files in the Apple "," and then use "Open with…," iOS will only send the first file to NeoFinder for iOS. We have reported that bug to Apple six years ago, but it seems to be still present in the most current iOS version.
Please try to select just one NeoFinder Catalog file, and then use the "Open in NeoFinder" command to see if that works.
