Make iOS more like OS X
When it came to making an operating system for the iPhone and the iPad, Apple chose a different direction than it did for the Mac: a much simpler interface and a controlled environment.
This control makes iOS a fast, safe and relatively trouble-free environment. The problem is that it comes at the expense of some powerful features. Unlike OS X, you have no direct access to files. Instead you have to access them from inside apps.
The first thing you should do is get your files into Apple’s iCloud Drive system. Transferring files to iCloud Drive makes them accessible across all iCloud Driveenabled apps, including all of Apple’s iWork apps and Microsoft’s Office suite.
In the upcoming iOS 9 you’ll be able to activate an iCloud Drive app by going to Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive and switching on ’Show on Home Screen‘. This installs the iCloud Drive app on your iPhone or iPad’s Home screen, which is much more like using Finder in OS X.
If this isn’t enough, then you should investigate remote access software, which enables you to view and control your Mac from an iPhone or iPad. Parallels Access (http://bit.ly/1INfAVU) is the best of the bunch, because it formats OS X and its apps to fit perfectly on the smaller iOS screen, and it has a great interface. It costs £13.99 per year. For a free solution, search for Google’s Chrome Remote Desktop in the App Store on your iOS device, and install Chrome and the corresponding extension (http://bit.ly/ 1hBQfFp) on your Mac.
