    I am writing a simple mapping app for the iPad which when deployed the user will use iTunes to upload largish mbtiles files and digital elevation models to open from within the app. To test progress in the simulator, I need a way to upload these files to the special folder for the app in the simulator but, of course, the simulator doesn't have iTunes.

    I am hoping that there is a simple way of doing this that I have just overlooked. Any suggestions?

    You could try with a copy files build step in Xojo.

    Then in the App.Open event or anywhere relevant, move the files to SpecialFolder.Documents

    Yes, a Copy Files Build Step ought to do it.
