Where to place your application files after enabling UIFileSharingEnabled

After you enable UIFileSharingEnabled in your app and connect to your development device to iTunes you will notice that all of your files are exposed.

If you have been using something like the code below then your files will be exposed to the user from iTunes with UIFileSharingEnabled set to YES.

NSString *documentDir = [NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSDocumentDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES) objectAtIndex:0];

There is a simple workaround. Instead of the above code try this:

Tethering an iPad to an iPhone without JailBreak (part 3)

In this followup we will list some of the app that we found that work and those that did not.
First the subject of setting up the iPaq Pocket PC. In the last post I noted that we could use an iPhone to tether an iPad without JailBreaking. You will still need to be in the developer program.

The iPaq Pocket PC will act as out WiFi Hub. The iPaq will not be used to actually transfer data, but is there to establish the connection between the devices. Not unlike your network at home, the iPhone will function as an internet modem, the iPaq will be the Hub that the iPad connects to.
