True, up to a point. The app you are using would have to include a file manager function to open/save to any folder. Many apps just create a default folder, and open/save from there. You can, however, navigate to the file with a file manager app and open it from the file list. If you haven't set a default app for the file type, you'll get a list of the apps that can handle that file type and you can choose which app to use. Whether or not the app you choose will actually open the file from that location or just give you an error message depends on the quality of the app

Also true . But getting better with the "Open In" function.
I still remember using PalmOs, and having to use Palm Destop to get anything out of my PDA and onto my computer. Arrrrghhh!
