Hello,

the iPhone app will work on the iPad and will allow you to preview the thumbnails of a CDR file. Actually viewing the CDR file is a lot more complex, and I would like to better understand what you are looking for? What is the scenario you would like to use that?

Hi Gerard,
     Here's the thing. I tried the iPhone app and the thumbnail it showed me seemed to be about 12 dpi. It was completely useless, just a bunch of blurs. I'm very much a Windows guy, since CorelDRAW 1.x but I have an iPad2 now and it's a great machine and powerful. I don't expect to be able run CoreDRAW on it but it would be great to be able to at least view cdr files when one of my graphics clients e-mails me a question and I'm somewhere away from my desktop. I can hook in and run CorelDRAW with an app like LogMeIn Ignition but it would be easier for me, and lots of others, if we could just view a cdr file that was in DropBox there on the iPad.

Thanks,
Jim Dodds

BTW I'm having a lot of trouble with the iPhone app. I couldn't select the Description pane when I was on my iPad. That's why it's blank.

I agree. We don't need another social networking app but be able to view .cdr files at a high quality on the pad. That would be real useful. Thanks

Hi.

A larger thumbnail is a possibility, like an eps file, but actually opening the editable cdr file is not, and will not happen.
