    I have a .pps file as an email attachment on my iPad and I can't get Fileapp to open it. I've tried the Open With list, but Fileapp not listed. Any ideas?

    Are password protected zip files currently supported? I have not had any luck opening them. Zip files without passwords work perfect...

    I can understand that the app cannot open all files. I expect my iPad to have such limitations. But what if I still want the ability to save (and store) a file that was emailed to me? It seems that FileApp will not give the user the option to store the file if it cannot also open it. (I would love to be wrong about this.)

    Along these lines I'd also like to be able to add to the list of extensions that are recognized as text files. I am often sent .PAR files and .CNC files that are simple text files but I can't read them.

    I am also interested in knowing if password protected files are supported - specifically .xls files?
