Re-adding the open in option

It could be possible to re add the open in menu. The only thing to make it so it passes the app review is to make it so that it can't accept anything that is in plain text or compiled python. Zip files are probably permissible because in nature they are no...

I figured out how to add an image to Pythonista using the "+" icon at the top of the edit screen, but is there any way to add a whole lot of images at once? I have over 100 that I want to use in a game, and adding them one at a time is seriously tedious.
