How can I open a 30h project from Google Drive?  

If you exported a 30hands project to Google Drive, you can import it into 30hands on another iPad. Exported projects contain all image, video and audio files along with the database that puts it all together.

In order to download an exported 30hands project (with a .30h extension), you will need to go to Google Drive in Safari.

How to download and Open-In from Google Drive:
The following steps should work to download and Open-In your exported 30hands project:

1. Open Safari and navigate to http://drive.google.com
2. Find your 30hands project and touch it to open it.
3. Google Drive will show you what's inside the 30h file (It is a zip file!) as in the image below.

4. Touch the download arrow in the center above the white content box.
5. Wait until Google downloads it. If the project is large, it could take a minute or so. 
6. When Google is ready, touch "Open in..." and select 30hands Pro.

7. There may be a slight delay, but then you will see an orange "Importing" box as the project imports. If you have a project with the same name, 30hands Pro will add a number to the end of the name. Touch "OK" or type a new name.

8. Go to your list of presentations to find the newly imported project at the top.
If it is not there, pull down the list to refresh it.

9. That's it! Your project has been imported.

Why can't I use the native Google Drive app for iPad?
Google Drive is really 2 applications as far as iPad users are concerned:
  • the native iPad versioin
  • the browser version on the iPad
Each application behaves slightly differently. We have found that Google's native iPad apps are not as robust or functional as their browser versions. In the case of exported 30hands projects (with a .30h extension), Google's native iPad app will not work because Google is interpreting the file as a zip file.
