    So when you get word, pdf, power point attachments, and all that other stuff through email on the mail app of your ipod. so under the ipod or mail app there is some kind of code running that will let you open up and read all of these, so why is there not a separate app that will let you ssh over those types of files into a certain folder, designated by the app, and let you open them up and view them at any time on the go. It would be wonderful to edit them, but I understand thats a whole other thing. But why is this not out, lol?

    Something similar to what you're requesting was created a few months ago that utilizes Safari's file-reading functionality.

    It requires installing Apache (to view webpages offline), PHP (for php support..duh), a little modding, and finally, a php fileviewer, all of which you can find linked in the post quoted below. Granted, there's a little work involved and you can't do all of this through Installer, but it's worth it if you want to view files offline. Btw, you can't view ppts.
