Downloaded Resources can opened within the iOS App

Previously, only images and videos could be accessed from the My Resources Module, and this was ONLY by downloading to the camera roll. Now, most resource file types can be DOWNLOADED AND OPENED to view directly within the my Resources Module within the iOS app. Moreover, these can now be downloaded or sent to other app. See below for more details

Before you load a Resource, choose to Show Resources (which will show all), or search with filters (which means you can refine your search)
