2.0 Downlad for IOS

Fri May 16, 2014 4:46 am

Quess I'm getting slow in my dotage, but when I download 2.0 for IOS, I get a folder labeled "Payload". It contains a folder labeled MailWasher.app. The later contains a file named Mailwasher. What I'm not finding is Mailwasher.ipa.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Are you using a download manager in Windows? When I click on the link in the new topic it immediately downloads via my browser.

I think you had this last time, the .ipa file is just an archive file like a .zip (if you rename it to .zip you can open it up and see what's inside it). So I think you computer is not associating it with an iTunes file. Perhaps if you go to Control Panel, search for 'File associations' and click on 'Change the file type associated with a file extenstion' , then locate the .ipa type file and change it to iTunes

What I found was strange. When I download it, WinZip automatically kicks in. If I close WinZip withour extracting, and move the .zip file from the Download folder to my MailWasher Mobile folder, the file appears as MailWasher-IOS-200.zip. Should I just change the file extension to ".ipa" from ".zip"? Rename it to MailWasher.ipa? It doesn't download as .ipa.

Historically, I've dragged the new .ipa file to Apps in iTunes from where I've downloaded it.

Yes, just change the extension to .ipa or better still for the future, just change the file association as I mentioned
