    So I'm SURE I'm not the first to find this, but I figured I'd report my finding either way.

    Having the same desire to connect to my iPad like an external or network drive I ended up mounting it across the network like this:

    1 Open GoodReader and open the WiFi-Transfer Dialog. This will give you an ip address on the local network.

    2.) In Finder > Go > Connect to server and enter that address. In my case http://10.0.0.3:8080

    3.) The password dialog will come up showing a username. Hit enter without entering a password.

    You SHOULD now be connected to your GoodReader across the network as if it were a network drive!

    I've been able to transfer and manipulate files at will without any issue at all.

    Granted, the transfer speeds aren't spectacular, but it DOES work.

    This has the potential to now be a portable network connected drive that auto syncs with DropBox.

    BTW, in Windows just map a network drive and use the same address. It works just as well!
