I realise that it is a restriction with iOS/Safari in that the file system is hidden, but has anyone come up with an solution allowing the uploading of files (particularly images) to the SS CMS from an iOS device?

I have a client, who is a Painter in Bendigo, Australia who exclusively uses the iPad for work. He would like to be able to upload images to his image gallery.

Looking forward to hearing about your creative solutions & workarounds.

Thank you.

I don't think you can use fileupload from within the CMS (but I might be wrong). A workaround might be to use ftp and synchronize - if you really need to, that is. You could maybe use an app like FTP on the go (haven't done this myself)? Maybe there even is a module that can import a specific file after it has been ftp-d?
