We’ve all had this experience: you have a presentation at school or work and you want to prepare for it during your break time. But you don’t want to bring your computer with you all the time. Well, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to put the PPT files onto the cell phone that’s always in your pocket?
With this guide, you’ll be able to transfer files from a PC to your iPhone in 3 simple ways: WiFi, iTunes or Cloud Storage. And it’s all free.
1. This guide also works for the iPad, iPod Touch and other iOS devices.
2. Before we start doing this, we need to first download a PPT Reader and Editor, which will make this whole process much easier. Let’s take Kingsoft Office Free for example; download it on your iPhone from the App Store. After downloading, we can start.
3. If you choose Cloud Storage, you’d better have a cloud storage account, such as: Google Drive, Box and Dropbox.
Step 1: Make sure your iPhone is connected to the same local area network as your PC.
Step 2: Launch Kingsoft Office Free on your iPhone. Turn on “WiFi file transfer" as seen in location 1 in the following picture.
Step 3: On your PC, enter the URL in a browser displayed on your portable device, which can be seen in location 2 in the above picture.
Note: When you enter the URL on your PC browser, please make sure the above page is open on your iPhone at the same time.
Step 4: Select the document you want to transfer.
Step 5: Click “Upload".
Step 6: The file transfer is complete, and the file is now on your portable device.
iTunes is one of the most amazing and must-have apps for iOS devices. You can also simply use it to help you out.
Step 1: Connect your iPhone to your computer via USB cable. iTunes will be launched automatically.
Step 2: Enter into the device by clicking the iPhone icon in iTunes.
Step 3: Switch to the Apps tab on the tool bar. Find "Kingsoft Office" in the application list. Tap the Add button in lower right corner as shown in the following picture.
If Kingsoft Office Free has been added, you only need to click it once.
Step 4: Select the file (e.g. "friendship.ppt") you want to add in the file list. Tap the Open button.
Step 5: The file "friendship.ppt" has been added in iTunes.
Step 6: On the Kingsoft Office Free interface on your iPhone, "friendship.ppt" has been saved under the My Documents catalog.
Step 1: Log into Google Drive on your computer.
Step 2: Click CREATE to upload the file on your computer to the Google Drive server.
Step 3: Launch Kingsoft Office Free on your iPhone, and log into Google Drive.
Step 4: Then you can download the PPT file from the Google Drive server.
The same situation applies to Drop Box, Box and other Cloud Storage services.
