    This is probably a feature request (although I'd be interested if anyone has a work-around via script.) Also, I'm new to iOS so please forgive me if I don't get the terminology correct.

    When I tap a file that Pythonista isn't familiar with I receive a message that reads:

    Unsupported File Type
    This file cannot be opened with Pythonista.

    alt text

    Can we please instead have a screen that looks like this:

    alt text

    so that we can let other apps that have set up handlers open the files in question.

    More information:

    I use python scripts to update and retrieve information as part of my daily workflow. For example - I retrieved a database and a pdf from a client through Python. If I tap the pdf in file view Pythonista's built-in viewer opens it. It's a nice feature but more importantly it allows me (through the sharing widget) to share/export the file with other apps ('Open in:' iBooks, Kindle, Chrome, etc..) When I tap the database all I get is a prompt that reads 'Unsupported File Type' even if I have an app that has registered the file type and can open it.

    Can you do it? Pretty please?

    I apologize in advance - this is probably another basic question.

    I'd like my python program to run continuously in the background until:

    1. it completes it's processing or
    2. I tell it to stop.

    What tends to happen now is that (when it's working on a larger batch) the lock screen automatically kicks in after a couple of minutes and the script just dies. Is there an iOS-related command I can call (on a script-by-script basis) that would prevent it from doing this without having to disable 'Auto-Lock' manually in the iOS settings?

    I noticed that some iOS games remain running (even after 5 minutes with no user input). This is what I'm trying to do. I'm not worried about draining the battery because the device is usually plugged in and charging and having that second screen to monitor while I work on something else would be really helpful.

    Thank you again for Pythonista!
