Can't Download Adwords reports on an iPad - suggestions?

While using an iPad to check email, I get my daily email report notifications from Google. So I click the link which then I signin to Adwords using Safari. But, then on the report page the report says it is downloading but it doesn't come up or save.


Now, i know the iPad can't download from the internet, there is no central file system in iOS, but is there a workaround to send the Adwords CSV reports to my Google Drive for viewing or actually make the reports an attachment in an email which iOS Mail would let me view?


Thanks for the input,

Hello, Matt.

Anfortunately, Google AdWords no longer attaches reports to e-mails, as it once did. Also, as you've noticed, iOS devices cannot download files by themselves.

So I'd say that the last non-jailbroken way of dealing with this is by installing an app which enables downloading on iOS devices. If you Google "download files for iOS" you'll find at least one.

Best of luck, from someone who was also frustrated to realize that the iPad is of no use in such circumstances.
