Can iWork apps read files from SD cards using this adapter?
We have the MacBookAir with the SD slot and now have the iPad with Lightning. Can we pass files back and forth using SD and this adapter to do work in apps like Pages, Numbers, and Keynote? I understand the obvious just dock the iPad, but the iPad and MacBookAir are owned by different people, not the same person. I also understand the obvious iCloud and other cloud based options, but we are trying to save cellular costs when wireless is not available. We also have copyright content we prefer to safeguard on physical media, rather than the cloud. Thanks!

I can't tell you for sure, but I highly doubt this would work. When you plug in an SD card to this accessory, it automatically opens an app to import images and displays the images stored on the card. There is no option to view other files that may be on the card.
