It is possible to drag and drop files directly onto your computer browser to add files to unrealBook. To do this you need to enable expert mode.

Go to Settings->Globals->Functions and turn on expert mode.

Go to Settings->Globals->Functions and turn on Expert Mode.

Then go to the action menu and choose Open Web Interface.

A small window will appear giving you an IP address to type into your web browser on your computer. The iPad and computer must be on the same WiFi network.

Type the http:// address shown in the window including the trailing /

Your browser will show a window containing the unrealBook files. You can drag PDF and MP3 into it. It is a listing of the unrealBook Documents folder.

Getting files into unrealBook with MacOS Catalina/Big Sur

Things have changed drastically with Catalina/Big Sur. To get your files into unrealBook or unrealBook Mobile, connected the iPhone or iPad to a Mac. Open a Finder window. (The files are now accessed directly in the Finder). Click on the iPhone/iPad icon on the left and click on Pair if it asks. You will need to unlock and “trust” the computer.

Click on device on left and then click on Files

Then once the apps are listed under Files, you can click the disclosure button to show the files. Be patient as it can take a while. Drag files into the files area to add them to the iPhone/iPad. Unfortunately you cannot shift select files in Catalina to delete them; you can in Big Sur. Apparently select all and shift click has been fixed in Catalina! Now, it is a viable replacement for iTunes.
