After adding the installous application, you may now download apps directly from your ipad.  Should you have some .ipa files directly downloaded from your pc or mac, you would need something like an Ipad explorer or browser to transfer files to and from your pc or mac.  See our other guide here in this link on how to transfer or copy files to and from pc or mac using ssh winscp or cyberduck.

You can also navigate directly to your Installous downloads path directory, and edit/delete/copy files from there to backup to your PC! If you are wondering how you upload files to your iPad via SSH, and your iPad is jailbroken with Installous installed, but you have no idea where the download directory is for Installous so you can install application from your PC to your iPad. The directory is /private/var/mobile/Documents/Installous/Downloads/
