IOS Application File Folder Access

I'm writing an IOS (iPad) app and I'd like to allow the user to read/write a file in the IOS File folder. Is this possible, or will "sandboxing" prevent this from happening? Thank you.

That depends on what you mean by “iOS File folder”. You’re right that the iOS sandbox means that you don’t have unfettered access to the entire file system. There are various approaches you can take, but the best approach depends on the specific problem you’re trying to solve. Can you explain more about that?

ps If you put that explanation in a new thread in the Core OS > Files and Storage topic area on DevForums, I’ll respond there. That way the good folks here on Swift Forums won’t has to listen to us prattle on about iOS specifics (-:

Thank you, Quinn for your reply. I'm in the process of moving my question and additional explanation to the Core OS > Files and Storage topic area as you suggested.
