Voice Dream Reader storage?

iOS & iPadOS

VDR is using a large amount of space on my ipad mini. Is there a way to store VDR contents in icloud, or similar, but so I can still access the contents easily, but free up storage on ipad?
Thanks for advice.

As far as I know, there is no way. You can turn on iCloud syncing, but this only copies the files to iCloud Drive while keeping them on your local device. Your best bet would be to remove any content you don't need anymore and/or delete voices you purchased through the app and don't need.

You can do this. You can access your iCloud Drive via the iCloud Drive app on your iOS app or by hitting command+shift+I while in finder on the Mac. place files there an voice dream will be able to see them and download them. you will then have to delete them if you want to keep the space down, but that would be the same if you used dropbox or another cloud provider.

Thanks Kyle,
In IOS11, which I am on now, I believe Files is the replacement for the iCloud Drive app?
To place the VDR files there, do I go into VDR settings and do Cloud Sync?

Think may have worked it out. Using Slide Over Multitasking, move copy of file from VDR to icloud drive on Files app, and it becomes a Zip archive file.
