    Getting work back onto server from iPad

    Basically the school want the children to be able to work on the iPads and then save the work that they do on the iPad back to our server. Does anyone know any way this can be achieved? The only option that we can come up with so far is a piece of software called foldr but the starting price for that is £3000 a year which is a bit much at the moment.

    We use our existing HAP+ install for this and its flawless.

    We dont want any options like dropbox and skydrive as we want it all runing internally. Also WebDav was also mentioned but we decided we did not want to go down that route.

    If you have money to spend then I suggest Acronis Access. We had a trial and were impressed but in the end the school wouldn't pay for it.

    HAP is completely free, developed by @nickbro on here. Runs internally on an IIS server.

    I didn't think HAP could transfer from an iPad to a server only open files through HAP.

    Hmm.. We've not had any complaints to be honest. Not sure.

    We just had these guys run a campaign on the site recently with a product that allows you to save to a network from an iPad: AirCatch

    And I was so caught up in whether HAP worked with the iPad I forgot to recommend the Filebrowser app for iPad.

    I have tried the filebrowser app however i found that due to restrictions on our server it couldn't get to the student profiles and only allowed us to view the shared drive

    Filebrowser works okay for a cheap solution on iPads, I use it at work

    There's some WebDAV guides on edugeek to roll your own

    Foldr is a very good solution IMHO and gives you a lot more than just write back for tablets.

    We have 1k kids and the price quoted was 2k yr 1 and £900 year two +, which for a supported remote file access service from anywhere with browser/app/WebDAV support I thought was okay tbh.

    My 2 cents

    Acronis Access (previously MobilEcho) allows you to open and save any files to/from the server as well as copy/paste or move files. You can also create new folders and sync entire folders or shares to your iPad. MS Office docs can also be created and edited. Integrates with Sharepoint servers as well. Costs $5,000 per year here for a site license (unlimited file servers and users).

    Other options are Foldr or School eLockers.

    I have to say AirCatch, we trialled this back in February and ended up buying a full version! Only a little less than £300 a year and it lets the staff and pupils save to their home folders! It doesn't allow you to pull the files back from the server but we only have 1 movie app that seems like it would support this anyway. Thumbs up from me!

    AirCatch looks intriguing and would appear to be a possible solution for shared (trolley) iPads. It's obvious that an email account has to be setup on the iPad for it to work, so does this email account allow sending of an email to any email address, or only those configured in the AirWatch server? If it only allows emails to the addresses specified in the server, then this would be a brilliant solution as it would prevent students sending spam (or bullying) emails to one another or people outside of the school.
