Download iFile for iPad
The iFile iPad app gives you the functionality to do fast navigation using multiple tabs. You can ofcourse use it as a typical file manager. However to download it on your iPad, you will need to jailbreak iPad as it requires permissions which are not natively available. The iFile also lets you compress files, read PDF files, view pictures, videos and see text files without downloading any additional software.
And in order to access those special permissions, you will need to jailbreak your iPad which will give you super user permissions to do anything on your iPad.
Once jailbroken, fire up Cydia, search for iFile and install it from there. There is a paid version of iFile too but the free version is sufficient for most users.
