Great, so long you like your apps freezing every five minutes.

by Moamel Nawfal on 2019/06/16 18:29
I like this app very much and it is one of the most used app in my iPad, Everything is very good about this app and I like the feature of downloading from the web because I like download media and video when I was using android phone and the only app that gives me similar experience is this app so thanks Readdle. The only problem in my opinion which made me give this app 4 stars is the feature of adding a subtitle to their media player which I wish they will add it soon.

This app is a great tool. It’s perfect for saving, exporting, storing, and organizing files more effectively. I can use this app for virtually any project and the layout is simplistic and clean. The best part has to be the search client inside the app. It’s super versatile and unbelievably usable, if I could give it 6 stars I totally would.

by Minzo88 on 2019/06/13 22:50
When I originally switched from android to apple, I was concerned about file management and versatility, due to most iPhones limitations in that criteria. This app has gone far beyond my expectations. The easy-to-use interface and strait forward controls, along with the built in browser surpass even the androids more computer-like software. Overall a great app and would still download even if it wasn’t free.

Nice but bugs
by Anonymous unicorn rainbow on 2019/06/12 11:41
Super useful for school and downloading music and videos. However recently there’s an issue where when I press a song it starts playing a completely different song in a completely different place in the playlist, then when I press the rewind button it goes back to the song I pressed, and if I want to listen to the song before that song, it doesn’t work. I pressed player and I found that it makes a completely random “playlist” where it’s just a bunch of random songs from the playlist that I made of like 200 songs and none of them are in order or anything, just random songs. Please fix this bug
Used to be good

New versions are getting worse
by IIIJQIII on 2019/06/11 11:04
This app was great and I used to experience no bugs whatsoever. However, lately there have been so many I just can’t help to leave a bad review here. This becomes increasingly disappointing as all the functions mentioned were working last year but they stop working one by one over the updates through these months. :< 1. The media playback from remote servers used to be unbelievably smooth. I was able to stream 1080p from my home server as well as a few others. Now it’s just crap. It constantly lags (by which I mean it’s not the buffering lag, but literally lag - caused by not decoding correctly or something). I have no problem using other apps like Infuse and FTPManager streaming, but it’s a shame I can’t use my most preferred app when it should be the best at handling this. The files I’m having trouble with are mp4 and mkv files, if that helps. 2. Accessing servers on the lan would cause the interface to hang if there’s no internet connection. Touch on the file viewing area becomes unresponsive but I can still switch to other tabs. Seriously I can’t understand the reason behind this. Why should connecting to internal servers have things to do with the internet? Are you guys trying to upload my data while I’m using my server? Because it would make no sense if it weren’t for that reason. Connecting to the said servers works just fine if I switch to Filza or iOS 13 Files or FTPManager or whatever. Protocols I use for accessing files are majorly SMB and SFTP. 3. The recently deleted function is buggy as hell. Sometimes it doesn’t actually delete until you reopen the app. Can we just have an option to fully disable it since it’s not that useful at all (having to delete files twice) and the awfulness of bringing it in is weighing over its usefulness. Seeing from other reviews this is being requested by others as well, but why there’s still no response on it seems strange. 4. Some files on the servers with name beginning with “.” (period) are totally invisible. Well yes I know Unix systems by default would hide these files, but what’s the deal with not having them shown if the server is created on Windows? Or at least adding an option to show the hidden ones would make it a far better implementation than the current one. I use the Documents app to debug system files on the server side in some urgent situations while I cannot get back to workplace, how am I supposed to this while the files that should be there can’t even be seen? 5. The recent FileDrop function is apparently redundant when there’s already AirDrop which you can take full advantage of. What’s annoying is that unlike AirDrop, it cannot be switched off, which potentially allows me being spammed by some unknown people connecting to the same network. Now I don’t know whether others have been experiencing the same in Starbucks or connecting to Airport Free WiFi, but why can everyone, even strangers, send me files (especially scary pics) and there’s not even a way to turn it off? What’s more ridiculous is that the receiving interface occupies the whole screen, a whole darn screen and I can’t even open my files if the person chooses to spam me on their end. Overall I used to believe Readdle makes great apps, but judging from the recent updates I’m seriously disappointed and have already started to switched the other equivalents.
Garbage

new bug with m4a files makes it unusable
by AngryGoy2 on 2019/06/09 01:12
certain types of files are no longer read properly by the app. a song that is 4 minutes long will play to the end of the song, but then there will be 4 minutes of padding at the end of the song file. (its like the app thinks the song is twice as long as it actually is, a 2 minute song will have 2 minutes of dead air time at the end of the song). And these files play fine in vlc but not in documents, so it’s definitely a bug with the documents app. it only happens with some files though, so far it only happens with m4a not mp3.

Still the best file manager on iOS. Needs iXpand support though
by JohnT2009RN on 2019/06/07 07:02
I rely on this app each day and will continue to. It excels in many ways to allow for connectivity and communication. I love the feature set. The only thing it needs is a usb / external drive support. iXpand drives by design already have a lightning port on one side for talking to iOS devices so they would be a natural choice to support and Sandisk isn’t going anywhere so likely wouldn’t be wasted effort. Think about Readdle Team. It’s a good feature and it’s the logic next step for Documents.

I am just upset with Readdle Inc. Because Their apps playing a vital role in freezing iPads time to time and sticky onscreen keyboard with missing keys. And makes ur iPad experience horrible. I own iPad Pro 12.9 WiFi and LTE 256gb model. The first app I install is Readdle paid apps and free DOCUMENTS. After that, I installed many other apps, but they are freezing my iPad time to time and onscreen keyboard missing keys while I type. I was thinking it is a hardware problem, so I tried every single thing possible that mentioned on the internet nothing worked well for me. I reinstalled iOS using iTunes several times and installing back all the apps the same thing continued, but I didn’t realize until yesterday day, I reinstalled iOS again because I was frustrated with iPad performance. After all, I reinstalled and setup as new IPad as usual, but this time I didn’t install Readdle apps so I checked if the screen freezes and onscreen keyboard will function well or not. GUYS BELIEVE ME THIS TIME EVERYTHING WORKING WELL AS IT SUPPOSE TO BE, but I want to install Readdle apps again just after 5 min installation screen started to freeze and onscreen keyboard started to stick. All I want to say is if u have any problem with iPad reinstall the iOS with iTunes and use without installing any apps use the stock apps and see if the problem reproduce if not means these apps are the ones making our iPads basically useless. I HOPE Readdle will fix this issue. I will post a video on YouTube as well so that others will know what documents and it’s sibling apps doing to their iPad. I read many online communities having this issue; I guess most of them using Readdle apps.

by Eggo.OwO on 2019/06/05 06:20
I love this app! I use it to download videos on my tablet and to watch them while I go on other apps, like drawing apps. But it recently has started to glitch every time I open another and have it playing. It will pause itself, and when I press play again, it will repeatedly pause itself once again. It works just fine when I’m on the actual documents app and have the video playing, but only glitches when I’m on another app. This is disappointing, because I’ve used it for months and have had no problems with it playing while on another app until now.

This is a great tool to fill in on file management where iOS left off like downloading and managing files from the web browser eg I was able to easily download a 5gb zip file from a photographer, unzip the files and easily save all of them to my photos app. This work flow could not have been done without this app. Thaks!

I don’t use Documents as some sort of work folder. I use it for more of a place to hold my recreational files but even for that purpose it is exceedingly good and blows away the competition. Keep up the good work.
Great tools
by SarumSword on 2019/01/14 06:53
I downloaded this app originally on the recommendation of a friend to more easily place files in compatible folders for use in some other apps. However, I have actually received most of my use out of this app from its easy interface with google docs as well as the e-reader built into the Documents app. Specifically the text reflow tool has made reading books on an iPhone SE screen a great experience. The video player built into the app is also very well done, especially because you can use this app to stream videos stored on my network’s server (server file access privileges required to perform, unrelated to app usage). The only annoyance I’ve found so far is when using the iOS read out loud feature to read text in files. When the navigation buttons are showing (return to files button on top and forward/backward page on bottom) the reader reads your entire directory’s file names. The same thing happens when the navigation buttons are hidden (by tapping the text once), but after it finishes reading that page it is on. However, this text reflow tool coupled with the iOS read out loud feature has saved me a bunch of time on my commute reading various books and textbooks, especially for education purposes!
Constantly Freezes Up - Resolved
by ItunesReviewMan on 2019/04/17 23:34
I found that I could zip my folders and save them to my laptop. Then I deleted the documents app, re-downloaded & re-installed the app and restored my folders. Working fine now. Restoring the folders from the zip file also restored all the sub-folders & files. I did need to create multiple zip files, my original zip of the entire database was probably too large. It zipped up but I received an error message when I attempted to restore it. ————————————————- App used to work great but starting a couple of months ago it started locking up on me when doing various things like selecting multiple files to move or delete, converting jpeg files to pdf, deleting files while viewing them, using the scanner, etc. Requires a reboot of my iphone to correct the problem but it is not long before it freezes up again. I would try deleting the app & reloading it but I have hundreds of folders and I do not wish to recreate all of them manually.
It’s a great app but lately...
by Honey peach tea on 2018/12/29 00:25
I’ve been using this app for a little over a year now and there was never really any problems. I use Documents to download all of my music since I can’t use the common app for music on my phone. It’s been working fine until now. It would work fine but after a couple of songs, one song would come up and I would listen to it for around 1 minute, then suddenly it stops and skips over to the next song. It’s not just one specific song but it happens to other songs too. One time it skipped two songs right in the middle. I’ve tried replying the same song and refreshing the page but it still does the same thing. I even went and updated it to the recent version but the issue still appears. It’s really frustrating. Now I use the common app but I can only listen to one artist a time, so when I want to listen to another artist song, I have to stop what I’m doing and search for the artist. Documents is the only app I can use for my music that gives me everything I want without making it complicated. Overall, it’s a good app to use with no fuss.
Cannot Permanently Delete Data
by Ellis Jaiye on 2018/06/24 13:44
I have used the Documents app for some time now, but just recently became aware of the fact that I cannot permanently delete data I have removed from the app via the in app deletion tools. I have done the initial deletion, and then the secondary “permanent” deletion, but the data itself still remains somewhere in the iPad. Here is an example of what I mean. Recently I needed more space on my iPad. I checked how much storage the Documents app was taking up, noting the total being used was 6.98 gigs. After deleting several hundred megs worth of files (using the two step deletion process), I checked the storage situation again. The total storage being used by the app had increased to 7.05 gigs. (I also previously removed the Documents folder from the iOS Files app.) In short, I am being robbed of storage by the app. I don’t appreciate being robbed. Of course I could try and fully delete the app and see if that would solve my woes, but why should I have to? Why does the two step delete function not actually delete the files I want to delete? Uninstalling and reinstalling would mean I would have to move all my information back over and reorganize it as well. Why should I have to do that instead of simply being able to delete my files permanently?
Love it, but problem of late
by Bobcatukbb on 2018/04/26 20:37
I wrote a review and gave 3 stars that I will leave intact in case someone else has the same problem I had. I was able to fix the issue myself with a soft reboot of my iPad Pro. I saw a review on another app that had an issue that was fixed this way so thought I would try it. It worked! In love with this app! This has been a WONDERFUL app, but in the last few days some of my PDF files are EMPTY! Working on an iPad Pro with everything updated. Readdle’s PDF Converter working great, but when I choose to open in Documents it’s EMPTY! Will open as a good PDF file just fine in Google Drive.I know you guys can fix this quickly. This is the FIRST problem I’ve had after years of using your app on my iPads. Ready to give 5 stars again as soon as it’s fixed. You guys have ALWAYS had a great app here ... it’s ALWAYS been my “go to” PDF app even with downloading and testing many others.
2 videos to camera roll & downloading issues
by Haleyoxo on 2018/09/14 22:02
I’m not sure if maybe I haven’t figured it out yet but so far to my knowledge I can’t save only one video to my camera roll, I have to go through a process in which I have to copy the video to my iCloud, go allll the way over to my files app & click to save that one video because I have to save at least 2 videos to my camera roll if I only use this app. It’s frustrating because there’s videos I don’t want to save but end up saving just so I could download one. I also use this app to download twitter videos (mainly) & there are occasions I download a twitter video, it’s downloaded, shows a preview photo & everything but I come back a couple hours later & it says the file can not be played so that entire video is gone & I can’t find it again. It’s again very frustrating & confusing. But it’s a very useful app other than those problems I pointed out. If it’s a problem on my part I’d love to get feedback on how to fix it so I can change my review to 5 stars!
Excellent file management system
by Holland Daly on 2018/02/07 23:31
As a new iPad user, I became rather frustrated over how locked down the iPad’s file system is, almost to the point where I wanted to take it back for a refund. It’s nearly impossible to move files around or open them up in other apps unless you hook up to iTunes via a desktop. I stumbled across this app by pure accident and it has completely changed the way I use my iPad for the better. I use it as my file system where I organize my files, and can easily open them between apps. I’ve connected my google drive and Dropbox for easy file access across my phone and pc without ever having to deal with iTunes. I’ve even been using it as my photo viewer and MP3 player. Overall this is an essential app that I would highly recommend using rather than subjecting yourself to Apple’s ridiculous file prison system they have in place.
Best App for Documents
by ThordenViking on 2018/09/13 21:21
I had tested a lot of apps and this one was by far the best! It opens really quickly and it’s very responsive and easy to edit. The printer also works really good on it. However it’s not 100% perfect right now. Hopefully my review may change that. When I want to create a new blank document. I have to first click on edit and then tap more and then tap create text icon. That is three steps which is very annoying when I’m creating several new documents a day. There should be a button that you just tap once or A double tap. That would literally saved me a lot of taps per month. But that is my only complaint and nothing is perfect in life. This app has save me so much time and has made it possible for me to get a lot of work done on my phone that I normally have to do on my desktop. Thanks again for creating a great reliable app
So much better than the Files app
by Binky The Hand on 2017/09/21 17:53
This app is a real Finder, letting you organize files any way you want to instead of only separated by app. You can set apps such as Pages to use Documents as their default storage area for new files. (Unfortunately there are permission errors trying to move or copy existing documents from app-specific storage so you have to share/open in Documents from the app the first time.) Documents uses the exact same interface for local documents, photos, and multiple cloud storage services. It has full text indexing and many other features Files lacks. With one glaring exception it uses screen real estate more intelligently - the exception being the big floating plus sign (and occasionally media player) that covers up part of the file list and individual file controls.
THE Most used app on my iPhone!
by SoloPocono on 2018/05/24 02:30
I use this app for everything from my class materials, keeping important correspondence and storing copies of important pictures and sound files, song lyrics, webpages, business documents-you name it! The ONLY other app I use close to D is Keep-which I use for quick notes and often store a copy in D. Being able to back everything up to Dropbox, Box or iCloud with just a tap or two has been a LIFE(Work)-SAVER! When I get a new iPad every year or so, this is the first app I install and organize. The utility of this app is unmatched and I can’t remember EVER having any glitches! As an older person, taking classes despite my age & severe ADD; I desperately need things to keep me organized, make sure I have doubles & triplets in some cases, and a self-explanatory GUI-Documents provides it ALL AND MORE! THANK YOU!
Amazing but things come to a end
by Yo boo roro on 2018/01/10 02:13
I love this music it download my needs and so on well I don’t know why or what’s the reason but I recently play music that’s allready downloaded I never had a problem.. and now it plays but pauses for some odd reason and I need it play on my playlist in order... and like freezez and .. so I would allways open the app play music download any music that comes out without a problem so I play it and then close it when needed..no this issue am having is it plays but it starts playing 15-20 seconds in the song it it repeats over and over and then stops playing and have to press play and does the same thing over and over again.. I download over 200 songs and I don’t want to delete this amazing app..please fix this issue! And for anyone downloaded it it’s perfect very smooth but for some reason it stops playing and this is the past 2 days
Great for music
by DarkDrag0n8262 on 2019/05/04 17:23
The app is great and allows you to download your music offline for free. It does take some of your space, however. But with hundreds of files easily stored in one app makes the app convenient. In my documents, I mainly use it for downloading music offline. However, the controls the app allows you when listening to music hasn’t been working very well for me. The music that I first play works. But when moving on to the next song, It usually freezes. The play/pause buttons on Bluetooth headphones and so on do not play the song when facing the issue. So it becomes a pain to open your phone in order for a single song to play, especially when working out. Despite the control issues with music, it’s a great app which allows you to do so much more!
Takes up over 15 GB??
by Cabalex4 on 2018/07/08 07:21
I’ve been using this app for a year or two, and when I wanted to free up some space on my phone, I looked and saw that the app takes up 15 GB OF SPACE, depsite only having around 1-3 GB of files in the app. That’s more than my giant photos app of 10 GB! So either: A) It’s downloading all my photos again (I would have no idea why). I don’t think this is right, as deleting photos in the app deletes them also in the photos app. B) What the top review posted, which is the files aren’t deleting from the device. This makes sense, as I’ve had some fairly large files in the past. That’s a huge bummer because the rest of the app is pretty darn great and useful! Redownloading is just inconvenient and annoying, why is it cached or something?? Is it a data collection thing where they’re collecting user file data to “””improve the app””” (or sell to advertisers)? I have no idea, but the point is that this app unnecessarily hogs space on my phone (about 1/3 of the 64GB storage), and that’s not good. It might start out seeming small and harmless, but you’ll probably rack up a few GB over time, leading to a massive amount of randomly consumed storage, seemingly for no reason. Please fix this, it’s not helpful in any way. Or maybe I’m just doing something wrong. Maybe I have a random 12 GB file somewhere (although I’ve thoroughly checked). I dunno. Anyone other than me and the top review have this issue?
Best app
by RbB62 on 2017/10/30 17:31
I've been using this app for quite some time and it is AMAZING. It is as close to the Finder in the Mac as you can get on iOS. Being able to manage documents, download files from websites and even zip and unzip documents. I thought the Files app in iOS 11 would destroy this Documents app in iOS 11, but find I'm using Documents still. It's just so far ahead of anything else out there right now, and if you use Scanner Pro and PDF Expert they work seamlessly together. I love this app and use it on a daily basis. Also they recently added support for playing different video types, which has basically eliminated the use for VLC player app as well. Very happy with the app and would highly recommend, plus it's free! Which is even more amazing. Good job Readdle.
Almost Perfect
by thefantasycookie on 2018/12/05 06:21
[EDIT: All of a sudden the music player is really glitchy. Sometimes when a song ends, the next one doesn’t even play for some reason. And when i head back to the app to see why it stopped, the whole thing is just frozen and the app just crashes after 15-20 seconds. Not only that, but sometimes when I’m listening to a song and use the Control Center to pause it, the song doesn’t stop. When I go into the app after that happens, it’s frozen and eventually crashes (exactly like what i said above). This is getting really irritating...] I love this app to death! It’s awesome for listening to my music or just storing any files at all. I just wish that I could reorder my files the way I want. Being limited to ordering them by name and date means that I can’t be as organized as I’d like to be. Other than that, this app is a lifesaver and I use it all the time!
My most used app but still confined to limited view options
by Amazonfire on 2018/06/14 15:33
Considering all of the features that make this app truly stand out from every other file organization app I am disappointed and very frustrated that it lacks the very basic ability to customize how files are sorted. Name, date and size are generally useless when working with images. I need to be able to group copies/revisions of the same image together and still view them as part of the full set as opposed to isolating them in a separate folder. Other than that lack of functionality and major inconvenience, Documents is perfect for a naturally very disorganized person like myself who has pieces parts of important files everywhere- multiple cloud storage accounts, multiple devices, and multiple people editing the documents.
Excellent File Manager with Extraordinary Functionality
by Jacob M Burke on 2018/01/10 22:01
This is by far the best file manager I have ever used. Documents supports practically every file type you can think of, and allows you to view them with almost zero compatibility issues. One of the things I like about this app the most is the ability to unzip files, which is often hard to find in other iOS applications. Even though this app is called “Documents” the capabilities are far beyond just reading and saving documents. There is a built in media player, photo library, and excellent cloud storage integration. I highly recommend this app for anyone who is looking for a way to keep all of their files, photos, etc. all in one place.
They in year 3000!!!
by Kehfjdj on 2019/01/25 18:05
I don’t review....ever. They deserve this praise. I originally got this app to download videos and whatnot. Was very wrong, HOWEVER, I still use this app almost every day. You can do so much. It’s the little things you notice along they way that makes it just simpler to do everything through here. There’s ways to download videos btw they require going to separate sites to do it or something hella complicated. Too much work if you ask me. I have my own method for videos and they work flawlessly. I do not share my methods for privacy reasons...if I did, then everyone would do it and use it irresponsibly and create problems. Anyway, this app continues to amaze and surpass my expectations. Totally worth it, if you give it a chance.
Excellent capabilities, one minor request
by Flurr Ball on 2018/09/13 05:20
Handles various file types unlike any other iOS app I have tried. My only complaint is the accessibility of short (~15 sec) jumps. I can do this by bumping left and right on the cover art in the player but that’s it. The forward/backward buttons (on screen) only skip to the previous/next TRACK. Ideally, I would like to have the option to toggle this to previous/next ~15 seconds, like the functionality in some popular audiobook apps. On a related note, I have become accustomed to two and three taps to headphone controls performing the same short (~15 second) jumps forward and backward, respectively, but Documents responds to this (headphone) input by jumping forward and backward an entire TRACK. This is most useful for files with longer tracks, e.g. audiobooks.
Looking for a feature...
by Tall Cracker on 2017/09/26 06:37
This app is awesome, hands down. There’s one thing I can’t figure out, though: I liked this app so much that I decided to give Spark email a try (also by Readdle) which is now my favorite email app ever. But the problem is that Documents 6 exports emails using the standard iOS email app, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to change the export settings to use Spark instead. I know that you can drag and drop items from Documents into Spark if using the split screen, but it should be easier than that. Especially now that Apple totally screwed up the split screen experience with the new iOS update. It would be so cool if the developers could make that Spark email export option happen!
An essential app for anyone who wants more freedom
by Enrahb on 2018/09/08 03:56
Look, I love iOS. I consider it to be the best phone OS ever. But we have to face the fact that while it’s the safest and most secure that there’s a reason for that. That reason is the very closed system. This app is essential because it allows us to download, organize, and even open many types of files. With a built-in browser it’s like a system in a system. And using iTunes, it’s so easy to transfer files to a computer, whether Mac or Windows. The addition of tabbed browsing in the latest version makes a great app even greater. There are few apps that I consider absolutely essential for both casual and enthusiast iOS users, and this is the one.
Big help for students in this new generation
by Eriza08 on 2017/10/31 01:48
As we all know, the use of electronic gadgets in order to study is not uncommon. Anywhere, one could spot a student holding a tablet or a smart phone as he tries to read or study his lessons. This is because of the availability of study materials in “electronically-friendly” versions. As a medical student, this app has been a lot of help to me as I was able to not only highlight pdf files but also put notes on them. If you transfer this on to your computer, those notes remain and that’s really commendable. So, for students like me out there, this is a really good app to help us in studying especially in this very “techy” generation. 😉
Go to y2mate
by 1up Scourge on 2018/11/26 00:03
To get music go to a search engine and type in y2mate type music or sound you want or put in link but if you type in what you want click the video and play so find out if it’s what you’re looking for but y2mate will Break and you wouldn’t able to play the video so just go to safari and type in and copy the words you put in to safari and paste into y2mate play the video in safari and then you know what the looks like and sounds like and the picture click it in y2mate and then press download I’d recommend MP3 for you I still don’t know what a music file should be Mp3 or Wav and that’s how you download music and sound goodbye
Pretty straightforward, simple but great application.
by Freakin Yatch on 2018/10/15 16:11
I listen to music, alot… Almost every day, and the main problem I have with streaming media is that I hate ads. This app not only helped that problem, it also allowed me to download whatever I wanted to. Another great asset of this app is that if you downloaded music you can go offline and still listen to music. Minimal problems such as not having a button to make a folder is the only thing I have an issue with, other than that everything else has a pretty solid interface If I would grade this more accurately this would be a 4.8 stars. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Good but loses formatting
by MKB58 on 2018/06/08 16:02
It is nice to have all of my documents accessible in one place, and be able to drag and drop, but one thing I have found is that if you just tap a document to open it, it opens in the Readdle app and will lose formatting. For example, I have a Word document with columns and sections. When I tap it to open it in OneDrive, all of the formatting stays as it was in the original document. If I tap it while in Readdle Documents, it opens as a single column and the section dividers are lost too, which also puts things out of order. So only 3 stars, still it works well enough that I will leave it on my iPad Pro.
Love the App...but
by Kjhix31 on 2018/11/27 14:38
I have been using this app for years, and have loved it! I have recommended it to many friends and colleagues. However, as of late, I am having problems with syncing any of my SharePoint folders. Dropbox and Google Drive still work fine, but SharePoint does not. In the past, when syncs have stopped working, I would just delete and reinstall the app. That simple action would solve my problems. This time, unfortunately that hasn’t worked. I contacted support, and after a little bit of a wait, they responded saying they were able to recreate the problem. Here’s to hoping they fix it soon. I have trying to find some sort of replacement for Documents but unfortunately I haven’t found anything else at this time.
Readdle is Righteous
by Darth Ridiculous on 2018/06/03 20:29
Update: Thank you, thank you, thank you for adding a recently deleted feature! I have a file in Documents that's over 100 GB, and I've long lived in fear of accidentally deleting it. You've made an already awesome app essentially perfect. Documents doesn't just play well with Dropbox; for me, they've become lovers. The ability to upload folders — folders! — is a game changer and by itself worth so much more than what Readdle charges. Most of you will hate me for saying this, but I sincerely hope Readde follows the trend and adopts a subscription model because I very much want these developers to stick around.
Nice but bugs
by Anonymous unicorn rainbow on 2019/06/12 11:41
Super useful for school and downloading music and videos. However recently there’s an issue where when I press a song it starts playing a completely different song in a completely different place in the playlist, then when I press the rewind button it goes back to the song I pressed, and if I want to listen to the song before that song, it doesn’t work. I pressed player and I found that it makes a completely random “playlist” where it’s just a bunch of random songs from the playlist that I made of like 200 songs and none of them are in order or anything, just random songs. Please fix this bug
This app literally broke my phone
by itsallbouterika9 on 2018/08/22 20:14
I have had this app for a while now and it worked great until recently. However, within the last month it has really gone downhill. You can’t do anything without 5 million apps popping up. It’s extremely irritating. After the latest update, I decided to give it another go and when I was searching for a website in the app, it redirected me 50 times and tried to get me to call this number that kept popping up on the screen repeatedly. It keeps coming up nonstop and I can’t get out of the app or even turn the phone off to try to reset it (I’m using my iPad for this). It’s from some kind of ad and I just can’t get it to go away. I am on my way to Apple tonight to get it fixed as I cannot be without a phone, but exercise extreme caution when using this app. Frustrated and annoyed is an understatement...
doing weird things...
by Simi🌸 on 2017/10/27 01:57
I used to love this app, it’s very useful, but for some ODD reason, it keeps doing weird things. When I go on the browser to go on a website, sometimes it takes me to a random movie website. Then I try to exit out of it, and it takes me to another website. One time it took me to an inappropriate p*rn website and I got really scared. I had to loose all my data and delete the app. Today, I was trying to go on a website on the browser. Then it took me to the App Store to download Pokémon Go, then I saw “click to remove virus” but then it went to the App Store again. I don’t know what’s going on, but I really don’t want to have to loose all my data and redownload the app! It’s a really good app but it’s scaring me! please fix THIS!
Why is does it take so much space ?!
by Arta 12345689 on 2018/12/29 16:56
In my documents app I’ve only got 13 pictures and about 10 pdfs , recently i got a message from my iPhone telling me that my storage is full i go to check the storage usage an i see that the documents app is taking up 12GB of space !!!! I did use the app to transfer some movies into another app but i deleted them all afterwards and yeah my recently deleted folder is empty as well now I don’t really know what to do other that deleting the app and reinstalling it but the thought of this happening makes it useless I’d be really happy if you could help me
Fixed? (Was freezing iOS 11)
by 7432one! on 2017/10/05 15:58
Updated review 10/17: Seems to be working again; not sure why it kept freezing up previously (could have been an iOS bug). Currently working well with Apple Files. Raised to 4 stars (but might change to 5 once confidence is restored). Previous review (9/17): The app freezes as soon as it opens and none of my saved files or folders are visible. This happens whether Documents is opened directly, or in the native iOS Files App. Running on iPad 10.5 Pro with the latest iOS update. Hopefully this will be fixed soon, because some of the items are irreplaceable and I would hate to try recreating all those folders!
Date of Photos
by MaleahM01 on 2018/04/30 00:29
I use this app just to transfer photos from my laptop, to my iPhone. It used to make me super happy because it worked perfectly. But recently, it hasn’t been keeping the correct date on the photos in my Camera Roll. The app shows the correct dates, but when looking at them in my Camera Roll, it shows the date and time they were transferred. If I remember correctly, it didn’t do this before. I’m not sure if I’m doing something different or if that’s a change in the app. It also once made my photos completely out of order as well. Which, for someone like me, is very annoying. Other than that, it’s great. Like I said though, it didn’t do this before so I’m a bit confused.
Hands Down, Best Document Saver on iOS 🙌🏻
by 🔥🙊🙈 on 2018/07/08 16:07
1. ORGANIZATION is key! “Documents” offers a clutter-free experience while browsing and saving data; Files list themselves automatically, the moment you begin to use the app. 2. FAST & COMPATIBLE! Any site that allows you to download software (videos, applications, etc.) works ingeniously with the downloads manager. No annoying bugs, or lag time, only smooth sailing. 3. INCOGNITO! Despite any harboring suspicions, this app immediately recognizes 3rd party sites/applications (typically malware) and secures your privacy to prevent harmful bypass traces, which can steal your personal data.
Extremely Useful
by Picky emailer on 2018/02/06 01:00
This is my go to storage app. So easy to use and keeps all my files where I put them. I love the ability to be able to export files, unlike iBooks. My problem is that since updating when I use this program it makes my iPad Pro unresponsive sometimes and extremely slow other times. Even after closing the app and reopening it in the case of my iPad becoming slow the app won’t respond. I have to turn off my iPad and turn it back on. Hope the developer can quash the bug that is causing this problem. Thanks again.
Perfect for recorded audio files!
by CattGry on 2019/03/19 00:50
LOVE this app for storing and transferring my recorded audio tracks. I use its browser feature to download internet videos of the instrumental versions of songs (that I previously was forced to do on my laptop). Then, after I record my voice to the music on a different app, I save it to this one to play it back without the screen going dark and shutting my song off while I’m not active on my screen. (I’m sure there are tons of other great uses for it too—this one is just what I absolutely adore about it!) Such an iPhone game changer!!!
Recent Music/Video Bug
by Jingles2007 on 2018/02/01 18:33
After a recent update to the app, music and video playback have stopped working. Trying to open a music or video file results in the app freezing. This completely ruins the app for me. Before this, the app was great, though a way to convert file formats would be good, and also a way to download HTML embedded videos, rather than having to find a direct link to the video source file. Note: if you have this, and your music is in the iTunes directory, do edit, select all, zip. Then move the zip into a folder like “music” in the root directory. Then, decompress it there, and go back and delete all the ones in the iTunes folder. It seems to be a bug with that folder for me.
I absolutely love the app but...
by Zack_Attack978 on 2017/12/19 01:29
Whenever I download an MP3 i don't like how there isn't any picture and/or album art. It bothers me that there is just a blank music picture instead of something like the cover art! I would like if you guys could be able to add a picture from your camera as the album art and adjust it to fit. And also be able to add who the author of the MP3. That would be nice. But Still it's a great app though I like using it for school, and work. It's nice to be able to install videos on it to watch on the go. It's just the album art and author I want to be able to add. Please add that in the next update!
Great! But has some glitches
by Eggo.OwO on 2019/06/05 06:20
I love this app! I use it to download videos on my tablet and to watch them while I go on other apps, like drawing apps. But it recently has started to glitch every time I open another and have it playing. It will pause itself, and when I press play again, it will repeatedly pause itself once again. It works just fine when I’m on the actual documents app and have the video playing, but only glitches when I’m on another app. This is disappointing, because I’ve used it for months and have had no problems with it playing while on another app until now.
I love this app!!! Get It Before It's Removed From The AppStore!!
by Gunslinger gk on 2018/04/30 02:46
I love this app! I watch videos , look at pictures, listen to music with it, and read comics!!! Best Part? no WiFi needed, anything that you can download you can pretty much view without WiFi. This is amazing. Best part? it's all for free, no subscription, and if it ever were to get one, then is app would completely lose its reputation. The funny part about this is....this isn't a rigged review, this is a great app, and I hope it stays that way. However, this app might be removed from the AppStore for how great it works, so get it fast!!
Simply amazing.
by INTPTT on 2018/11/16 05:37
I use this app daily to connect to a NAS. I’ve used it as a network flash drive. I’ve used it to sync pictures to a WebDAV repository stored in the cloud. I’ve used it to watch entire seasons of a TV show directly from an SMB share. I’ve used it to access Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive from a single interface. I’ve followed detailed instruction manuals through the PDF reader. I’ve downloaded multiple files from an open directory. I’ve browsed kid photos with the kids. LOVE THIS APP. Thank you for making such a functional, clean, and pleasing UX. It should win awards!
Best file management app ever

This is by far the best file management app ever. There are so many features that come with it like wireless transfer, a browser where you can download files, add on’s, and much more. It’s easy and quick to locate files and edit pdfs etc. You can easily copy files from your computer to your iOS device and iOS to your computer, or you can share files between devices, which personally is my favorite feature. I recommend this app to everyone that needs a file management app.
Breaks opening files in the iOS Files app
by Morac on 2018/11/27 08:03
There’s 2 bugs in Documents related to iCloud. 1. Files opened in the Files app that open in Documents that are not in the Documents by Readdle iCloud folder don’t actually open. Documents associates itself with a large range of file types, so many files in iOS Files can no longer be opened. A work around for the iPhone is to use force touch, but even that doesn’t work correctly. Another work around for file types that can be associated with other apps is to share one of those files and open it in the other app, then iOS will remember and open all future files of that type in that app instead of Documents. That allows those files to be viewed or edited. 2. All Files in the Documents by Readdle iCloud folder opened in Files get moved to local storage in the Documents app. They are no longer in iCloud. Also any file type (even images) get moved and opened in Documents. This along with #1 leads me to believe Documents can’t open files from iCloud. These are both regressions as they only recently started happening.
Image sometimes breaks.
by Leo Fatalis on 2018/07/21 11:39
I like the draw or sketch and have multiple if not numerous tutorials and examples to help me. I have copied everything that I use from my computer and used this app to hold everything from instruction, shading, lighting, shapes, positions, etc. The problems is that after a while these images would get an error saying that the image is broken, and even the thumbnail doesn’t load like it used to. Only the most recently added photo’s thumbnail is showing. Other than that the app is amazing, and makes moving photos, videos, and documents to your computer easier.
My most used app!
by Rick, Honda Owner on 2019/04/20 01:23
On the surface this app may not look that appealing. However when you dig in & use the app, there is a plethora of ways to use this app. The built in browser lets you download MP3 files, A rarity for the iPhone! I save my favorite coast-to-coast AM podcasts on my device & the ICLOUD drive! I also scan in important documents, manuals, and receipts & save them the same way. I'm sure I am just scratching the surface of us many uses. I only gave it four stars, because I'm sure it can get better. - - - — - - - - - — - - - - - — - - Updating my review from a several years ago. I cannot rave enough about this app Documents. The free version does about 80% of what I need & if you’re a frugal person, you can get free functionality from other apps, however if you buy their package of apps you will get all the functionality in one place & the apps all integrate well. I file everything in Documents, it’s fantastic.
Essential
by Mr_Elmore on 2019/02/11 23:21
I've been using this app for two years, and it's become indespensible as a place to store my PDF documents and other important items that I don't want to lose. Used in conjunction with PDF Expert and the Scanner app, it's pretty much like having a filing cabinet on your machine. I also store quite a few MP4 files because I like the way the app displays the album artwork and allows me the flexibility to organize the files as I please. The developers regularly offer updates, and so I am quite pleased and have no intention of looking elsewhere.
Best apple pencil app
by Hadikm on 2018/10/16 08:39
After trying almost any app for apple pencil writing and note taking, I ended up using this app for almost all my note takings along with PDF Expert app. The compatibility is amazing and it is so easy to integrate hand notes which are in new blank pages with text books taught in class and also the On-page audio recording. It does everything needed for a university class. The audio recording system has much more space for improvement though. It lacks many features, Like sharing, splitting, etc. Thanks Readdle
Best App for iOS Ecosystem
by Wowisthisreal on 2018/02/06 22:16
This app is seriously the best file browser app. It has so many supported clouds like drive,Dropbox, and others which make exporting and even downloading files a breeze. Also, the inbuilt browser makes downloading files off the internet a breeze. Lastly, one feature that is the best is the one to start a small server with a ip address(you can password protect it) on which other devices can go to and upload or download files that you have put on there yourself. Keep up the great work!!
A huge timesaver
by whitefishsc on 2018/02/24 14:47
3 generations of iPads since I first installed this app. I can’t imagine using my iPad Pro without it. This is the best way I have found to get a file put where I want it. If you work with a variety of file types you absolutely need this app. Right now I want to download some brushes into a painting app. With Documents I can download the brush files from my G drive account into Documents, unzip the file then open my painting app and collect the brush files. Now I am ready to start painting. Without Documents, I would still be cursing at lunch time.

I like this app very much and it is one of the most used app in my iPad, Everything is very good about this app and I like the feature of downloading from the web because I like download media and video when I was using android phone and the only app that gives me similar experience is this app so thanks Readdle. The only problem in my opinion which made me give this app 4 stars is the feature of adding a subtitle to their media player which I wish they will add it soon.

This app is a great tool. It’s perfect for saving, exporting, storing, and organizing files more effectively. I can use this app for virtually any project and the layout is simplistic and clean. The best part has to be the search client inside the app. It’s super versatile and unbelievably usable, if I could give it 6 stars I totally would.

by Minzo88 on 2019/06/13 22:50
When I originally switched from android to apple, I was concerned about file management and versatility, due to most iPhones limitations in that criteria. This app has gone far beyond my expectations. The easy-to-use interface and strait forward controls, along with the built in browser surpass even the androids more computer-like software. Overall a great app and would still download even if it wasn’t free.

by Anonymous unicorn rainbow on 2019/06/12 11:41
Super useful for school and downloading music and videos. However recently there’s an issue where when I press a song it starts playing a completely different song in a completely different place in the playlist, then when I press the rewind button it goes back to the song I pressed, and if I want to listen to the song before that song, it doesn’t work. I pressed player and I found that it makes a completely random “playlist” where it’s just a bunch of random songs from the playlist that I made of like 200 songs and none of them are in order or anything, just random songs. Please fix this bug
Used to be good

New versions are getting worse
by IIIJQIII on 2019/06/11 11:04
This app was great and I used to experience no bugs whatsoever. However, lately there have been so many I just can’t help to leave a bad review here. This becomes increasingly disappointing as all the functions mentioned were working last year but they stop working one by one over the updates through these months. :< 1. The media playback from remote servers used to be unbelievably smooth. I was able to stream 1080p from my home server as well as a few others. Now it’s just crap. It constantly lags (by which I mean it’s not the buffering lag, but literally lag - caused by not decoding correctly or something). I have no problem using other apps like Infuse and FTPManager streaming, but it’s a shame I can’t use my most preferred app when it should be the best at handling this. The files I’m having trouble with are mp4 and mkv files, if that helps. 2. Accessing servers on the lan would cause the interface to hang if there’s no internet connection. Touch on the file viewing area becomes unresponsive but I can still switch to other tabs. Seriously I can’t understand the reason behind this. Why should connecting to internal servers have things to do with the internet? Are you guys trying to upload my data while I’m using my server? Because it would make no sense if it weren’t for that reason. Connecting to the said servers works just fine if I switch to Filza or iOS 13 Files or FTPManager or whatever. Protocols I use for accessing files are majorly SMB and SFTP. 3. The recently deleted function is buggy as hell. Sometimes it doesn’t actually delete until you reopen the app. Can we just have an option to fully disable it since it’s not that useful at all (having to delete files twice) and the awfulness of bringing it in is weighing over its usefulness. Seeing from other reviews this is being requested by others as well, but why there’s still no response on it seems strange. 4. Some files on the servers with name beginning with “.” (period) are totally invisible. Well yes I know Unix systems by default would hide these files, but what’s the deal with not having them shown if the server is created on Windows? Or at least adding an option to show the hidden ones would make it a far better implementation than the current one. I use the Documents app to debug system files on the server side in some urgent situations while I cannot get back to workplace, how am I supposed to this while the files that should be there can’t even be seen? 5. The recent FileDrop function is apparently redundant when there’s already AirDrop which you can take full advantage of. What’s annoying is that unlike AirDrop, it cannot be switched off, which potentially allows me being spammed by some unknown people connecting to the same network. Now I don’t know whether others have been experiencing the same in Starbucks or connecting to Airport Free WiFi, but why can everyone, even strangers, send me files (especially scary pics) and there’s not even a way to turn it off? What’s more ridiculous is that the receiving interface occupies the whole screen, a whole darn screen and I can’t even open my files if the person chooses to spam me on their end. Overall I used to believe Readdle makes great apps, but judging from the recent updates I’m seriously disappointed and have already started to switched the other equivalents.
Garbage

new bug with m4a files makes it unusable
by AngryGoy2 on 2019/06/09 01:12
certain types of files are no longer read properly by the app. a song that is 4 minutes long will play to the end of the song, but then there will be 4 minutes of padding at the end of the song file. (its like the app thinks the song is twice as long as it actually is, a 2 minute song will have 2 minutes of dead air time at the end of the song). And these files play fine in vlc but not in documents, so it’s definitely a bug with the documents app. it only happens with some files though, so far it only happens with m4a not mp3.

Still the best file manager on iOS. Needs iXpand support though
by JohnT2009RN on 2019/06/07 07:02
I rely on this app each day and will continue to. It excels in many ways to allow for connectivity and communication. I love the feature set. The only thing it needs is a usb / external drive support. iXpand drives by design already have a lightning port on one side for talking to iOS devices so they would be a natural choice to support and Sandisk isn’t going anywhere so likely wouldn’t be wasted effort. Think about Readdle Team. It’s a good feature and it’s the logic next step for Documents.

I am just upset with Readdle Inc. Because Their apps playing a vital role in freezing iPads time to time and sticky onscreen keyboard with missing keys. And makes ur iPad experience horrible. I own iPad Pro 12.9 WiFi and LTE 256gb model. The first app I install is Readdle paid apps and free DOCUMENTS. After that, I installed many other apps, but they are freezing my iPad time to time and onscreen keyboard missing keys while I type. I was thinking it is a hardware problem, so I tried every single thing possible that mentioned on the internet nothing worked well for me. I reinstalled iOS using iTunes several times and installing back all the apps the same thing continued, but I didn’t realize until yesterday day, I reinstalled iOS again because I was frustrated with iPad performance. After all, I reinstalled and setup as new IPad as usual, but this time I didn’t install Readdle apps so I checked if the screen freezes and onscreen keyboard will function well or not. GUYS BELIEVE ME THIS TIME EVERYTHING WORKING WELL AS IT SUPPOSE TO BE, but I want to install Readdle apps again just after 5 min installation screen started to freeze and onscreen keyboard started to stick. All I want to say is if u have any problem with iPad reinstall the iOS with iTunes and use without installing any apps use the stock apps and see if the problem reproduce if not means these apps are the ones making our iPads basically useless. I HOPE Readdle will fix this issue. I will post a video on YouTube as well so that others will know what documents and it’s sibling apps doing to their iPad. I read many online communities having this issue; I guess most of them using Readdle apps.

by Eggo.OwO on 2019/06/05 06:20
I love this app! I use it to download videos on my tablet and to watch them while I go on other apps, like drawing apps. But it recently has started to glitch every time I open another and have it playing. It will pause itself, and when I press play again, it will repeatedly pause itself once again. It works just fine when I’m on the actual documents app and have the video playing, but only glitches when I’m on another app. This is disappointing, because I’ve used it for months and have had no problems with it playing while on another app until now.

One of the useful app for everyone ios users.😊
Nice app and I got no complaints

I’d appreciate it if you guys made a custom speed changer on the music player that’d be great but otherwise I’m satisfied.
Very useful

Amazing place for document management

Amazing place for document management. I use this app to manage my music and audio lectures. It’s so user friendly and reasonably customizable.

Download Manager
by It's nice BUT☹️ on 2019/06/03 20:44
I think if it have a download manager that you make queue and schedule list it's go best
Makes the impossible POSSIBLE!
by wlorenzo on 2019/06/03 19:33
This is a great tool to fill in on file management where iOS left off like downloading and managing files from the web browser eg I was able to easily download a 5gb zip file from a photographer, unzip the files and easily save all of them to my photos app. This work flow could not have been done without this app. Thaks!

Sensational app for offline music just needs little things added
by Fried chicken dude on 2019/06/02 16:42
If in the next update you can organize the music into albums, make it available to change the artist name & allow to put covers on the songs that would be perfect the app runs great just if that was added it make it a lot better
It’s great I love it

Great file viewer/manager

It doesn’t show OS files, but it shows so many doc types, and helps find & organize the that it’s an absolute must-have!!
Awesome

Honestly one of the best apps on my phone. Constantly evolving in a good way and never a burden. Awesome.
Keep up the good work
by Zachary the boy on 2019/06/01 22:08
I don’t use Documents as some sort of work folder. I use it for more of a place to hold my recreational files but even for that purpose it is exceedingly good and blows away the competition. Keep up the good work.
Great tools
by SarumSword on 2019/01/14 06:53
I downloaded this app originally on the recommendation of a friend to more easily place files in compatible folders for use in some other apps. However, I have actually received most of my use out of this app from its easy interface with google docs as well as the e-reader built into the Documents app. Specifically the text reflow tool has made reading books on an iPhone SE screen a great experience. The video player built into the app is also very well done, especially because you can use this app to stream videos stored on my network’s server (server file access privileges required to perform, unrelated to app usage). The only annoyance I’ve found so far is when using the iOS read out loud feature to read text in files. When the navigation buttons are showing (return to files button on top and forward/backward page on bottom) the reader reads your entire directory’s file names. The same thing happens when the navigation buttons are hidden (by tapping the text once), but after it finishes reading that page it is on. However, this text reflow tool coupled with the iOS read out loud feature has saved me a bunch of time on my commute reading various books and textbooks, especially for education purposes!
Constantly Freezes Up - Resolved
by ItunesReviewMan on 2019/04/17 23:34
I found that I could zip my folders and save them to my laptop. Then I deleted the documents app, re-downloaded & re-installed the app and restored my folders. Working fine now. Restoring the folders from the zip file also restored all the sub-folders & files. I did need to create multiple zip files, my original zip of the entire database was probably too large. It zipped up but I received an error message when I attempted to restore it. ————————————————- App used to work great but starting a couple of months ago it started locking up on me when doing various things like selecting multiple files to move or delete, converting jpeg files to pdf, deleting files while viewing them, using the scanner, etc. Requires a reboot of my iphone to correct the problem but it is not long before it freezes up again. I would try deleting the app & reloading it but I have hundreds of folders and I do not wish to recreate all of them manually.
It’s a great app but lately...
by Honey peach tea on 2018/12/29 00:25
I’ve been using this app for a little over a year now and there was never really any problems. I use Documents to download all of my music since I can’t use the common app for music on my phone. It’s been working fine until now. It would work fine but after a couple of songs, one song would come up and I would listen to it for around 1 minute, then suddenly it stops and skips over to the next song. It’s not just one specific song but it happens to other songs too. One time it skipped two songs right in the middle. I’ve tried replying the same song and refreshing the page but it still does the same thing. I even went and updated it to the recent version but the issue still appears. It’s really frustrating. Now I use the common app but I can only listen to one artist a time, so when I want to listen to another artist song, I have to stop what I’m doing and search for the artist. Documents is the only app I can use for my music that gives me everything I want without making it complicated. Overall, it’s a good app to use with no fuss.
Cannot Permanently Delete Data
by Ellis Jaiye on 2018/06/24 13:44
I have used the Documents app for some time now, but just recently became aware of the fact that I cannot permanently delete data I have removed from the app via the in app deletion tools. I have done the initial deletion, and then the secondary “permanent” deletion, but the data itself still remains somewhere in the iPad. Here is an example of what I mean. Recently I needed more space on my iPad. I checked how much storage the Documents app was taking up, noting the total being used was 6.98 gigs. After deleting several hundred megs worth of files (using the two step deletion process), I checked the storage situation again. The total storage being used by the app had increased to 7.05 gigs. (I also previously removed the Documents folder from the iOS Files app.) In short, I am being robbed of storage by the app. I don’t appreciate being robbed. Of course I could try and fully delete the app and see if that would solve my woes, but why should I have to? Why does the two step delete function not actually delete the files I want to delete? Uninstalling and reinstalling would mean I would have to move all my information back over and reorganize it as well. Why should I have to do that instead of simply being able to delete my files permanently?
Love it, but problem of late
by Bobcatukbb on 2018/04/26 20:37
I wrote a review and gave 3 stars that I will leave intact in case someone else has the same problem I had. I was able to fix the issue myself with a soft reboot of my iPad Pro. I saw a review on another app that had an issue that was fixed this way so thought I would try it. It worked! In love with this app! This has been a WONDERFUL app, but in the last few days some of my PDF files are EMPTY! Working on an iPad Pro with everything updated. Readdle’s PDF Converter working great, but when I choose to open in Documents it’s EMPTY! Will open as a good PDF file just fine in Google Drive.I know you guys can fix this quickly. This is the FIRST problem I’ve had after years of using your app on my iPads. Ready to give 5 stars again as soon as it’s fixed. You guys have ALWAYS had a great app here ... it’s ALWAYS been my “go to” PDF app even with downloading and testing many others.
2 videos to camera roll & downloading issues
by Haleyoxo on 2018/09/14 22:02
I’m not sure if maybe I haven’t figured it out yet but so far to my knowledge I can’t save only one video to my camera roll, I have to go through a process in which I have to copy the video to my iCloud, go allll the way over to my files app & click to save that one video because I have to save at least 2 videos to my camera roll if I only use this app. It’s frustrating because there’s videos I don’t want to save but end up saving just so I could download one. I also use this app to download twitter videos (mainly) & there are occasions I download a twitter video, it’s downloaded, shows a preview photo & everything but I come back a couple hours later & it says the file can not be played so that entire video is gone & I can’t find it again. It’s again very frustrating & confusing. But it’s a very useful app other than those problems I pointed out. If it’s a problem on my part I’d love to get feedback on how to fix it so I can change my review to 5 stars!
Excellent file management system
by Holland Daly on 2018/02/07 23:31
As a new iPad user, I became rather frustrated over how locked down the iPad’s file system is, almost to the point where I wanted to take it back for a refund. It’s nearly impossible to move files around or open them up in other apps unless you hook up to iTunes via a desktop. I stumbled across this app by pure accident and it has completely changed the way I use my iPad for the better. I use it as my file system where I organize my files, and can easily open them between apps. I’ve connected my google drive and Dropbox for easy file access across my phone and pc without ever having to deal with iTunes. I’ve even been using it as my photo viewer and MP3 player. Overall this is an essential app that I would highly recommend using rather than subjecting yourself to Apple’s ridiculous file prison system they have in place.
Best App for Documents
by ThordenViking on 2018/09/13 21:21
I had tested a lot of apps and this one was by far the best! It opens really quickly and it’s very responsive and easy to edit. The printer also works really good on it. However it’s not 100% perfect right now. Hopefully my review may change that. When I want to create a new blank document. I have to first click on edit and then tap more and then tap create text icon. That is three steps which is very annoying when I’m creating several new documents a day. There should be a button that you just tap once or A double tap. That would literally saved me a lot of taps per month. But that is my only complaint and nothing is perfect in life. This app has save me so much time and has made it possible for me to get a lot of work done on my phone that I normally have to do on my desktop. Thanks again for creating a great reliable app
So much better than the Files app
by Binky The Hand on 2017/09/21 17:53
This app is a real Finder, letting you organize files any way you want to instead of only separated by app. You can set apps such as Pages to use Documents as their default storage area for new files. (Unfortunately there are permission errors trying to move or copy existing documents from app-specific storage so you have to share/open in Documents from the app the first time.) Documents uses the exact same interface for local documents, photos, and multiple cloud storage services. It has full text indexing and many other features Files lacks. With one glaring exception it uses screen real estate more intelligently - the exception being the big floating plus sign (and occasionally media player) that covers up part of the file list and individual file controls.
THE Most used app on my iPhone!
by SoloPocono on 2018/05/24 02:30
I use this app for everything from my class materials, keeping important correspondence and storing copies of important pictures and sound files, song lyrics, webpages, business documents-you name it! The ONLY other app I use close to D is Keep-which I use for quick notes and often store a copy in D. Being able to back everything up to Dropbox, Box or iCloud with just a tap or two has been a LIFE(Work)-SAVER! When I get a new iPad every year or so, this is the first app I install and organize. The utility of this app is unmatched and I can’t remember EVER having any glitches! As an older person, taking classes despite my age & severe ADD; I desperately need things to keep me organized, make sure I have doubles & triplets in some cases, and a self-explanatory GUI-Documents provides it ALL AND MORE! THANK YOU!
Amazing but things come to a end
by Yo boo roro on 2018/01/10 02:13
I love this music it download my needs and so on well I don’t know why or what’s the reason but I recently play music that’s allready downloaded I never had a problem.. and now it plays but pauses for some odd reason and I need it play on my playlist in order... and like freezez and .. so I would allways open the app play music download any music that comes out without a problem so I play it and then close it when needed..no this issue am having is it plays but it starts playing 15-20 seconds in the song it it repeats over and over and then stops playing and have to press play and does the same thing over and over again.. I download over 200 songs and I don’t want to delete this amazing app..please fix this issue! And for anyone downloaded it it’s perfect very smooth but for some reason it stops playing and this is the past 2 days
Great for music
by DarkDrag0n8262 on 2019/05/04 17:23
The app is great and allows you to download your music offline for free. It does take some of your space, however. But with hundreds of files easily stored in one app makes the app convenient. In my documents, I mainly use it for downloading music offline. However, the controls the app allows you when listening to music hasn’t been working very well for me. The music that I first play works. But when moving on to the next song, It usually freezes. The play/pause buttons on Bluetooth headphones and so on do not play the song when facing the issue. So it becomes a pain to open your phone in order for a single song to play, especially when working out. Despite the control issues with music, it’s a great app which allows you to do so much more!
Takes up over 15 GB??
by Cabalex4 on 2018/07/08 07:21
I’ve been using this app for a year or two, and when I wanted to free up some space on my phone, I looked and saw that the app takes up 15 GB OF SPACE, depsite only having around 1-3 GB of files in the app. That’s more than my giant photos app of 10 GB! So either: A) It’s downloading all my photos again (I would have no idea why). I don’t think this is right, as deleting photos in the app deletes them also in the photos app. B) What the top review posted, which is the files aren’t deleting from the device. This makes sense, as I’ve had some fairly large files in the past. That’s a huge bummer because the rest of the app is pretty darn great and useful! Redownloading is just inconvenient and annoying, why is it cached or something?? Is it a data collection thing where they’re collecting user file data to “””improve the app””” (or sell to advertisers)? I have no idea, but the point is that this app unnecessarily hogs space on my phone (about 1/3 of the 64GB storage), and that’s not good. It might start out seeming small and harmless, but you’ll probably rack up a few GB over time, leading to a massive amount of randomly consumed storage, seemingly for no reason. Please fix this, it’s not helpful in any way. Or maybe I’m just doing something wrong. Maybe I have a random 12 GB file somewhere (although I’ve thoroughly checked). I dunno. Anyone other than me and the top review have this issue?
Best app
by RbB62 on 2017/10/30 17:31
I've been using this app for quite some time and it is AMAZING. It is as close to the Finder in the Mac as you can get on iOS. Being able to manage documents, download files from websites and even zip and unzip documents. I thought the Files app in iOS 11 would destroy this Documents app in iOS 11, but find I'm using Documents still. It's just so far ahead of anything else out there right now, and if you use Scanner Pro and PDF Expert they work seamlessly together. I love this app and use it on a daily basis. Also they recently added support for playing different video types, which has basically eliminated the use for VLC player app as well. Very happy with the app and would highly recommend, plus it's free! Which is even more amazing. Good job Readdle.
Almost Perfect
by thefantasycookie on 2018/12/05 06:21
[EDIT: All of a sudden the music player is really glitchy. Sometimes when a song ends, the next one doesn’t even play for some reason. And when i head back to the app to see why it stopped, the whole thing is just frozen and the app just crashes after 15-20 seconds. Not only that, but sometimes when I’m listening to a song and use the Control Center to pause it, the song doesn’t stop. When I go into the app after that happens, it’s frozen and eventually crashes (exactly like what i said above). This is getting really irritating...] I love this app to death! It’s awesome for listening to my music or just storing any files at all. I just wish that I could reorder my files the way I want. Being limited to ordering them by name and date means that I can’t be as organized as I’d like to be. Other than that, this app is a lifesaver and I use it all the time!
My most used app but still confined to limited view options
by Amazonfire on 2018/06/14 15:33
Considering all of the features that make this app truly stand out from every other file organization app I am disappointed and very frustrated that it lacks the very basic ability to customize how files are sorted. Name, date and size are generally useless when working with images. I need to be able to group copies/revisions of the same image together and still view them as part of the full set as opposed to isolating them in a separate folder. Other than that lack of functionality and major inconvenience, Documents is perfect for a naturally very disorganized person like myself who has pieces parts of important files everywhere- multiple cloud storage accounts, multiple devices, and multiple people editing the documents.
Excellent File Manager with Extraordinary Functionality
by Jacob M Burke on 2018/01/10 22:01
This is by far the best file manager I have ever used. Documents supports practically every file type you can think of, and allows you to view them with almost zero compatibility issues. One of the things I like about this app the most is the ability to unzip files, which is often hard to find in other iOS applications. Even though this app is called “Documents” the capabilities are far beyond just reading and saving documents. There is a built in media player, photo library, and excellent cloud storage integration. I highly recommend this app for anyone who is looking for a way to keep all of their files, photos, etc. all in one place.
They in year 3000!!!
by Kehfjdj on 2019/01/25 18:05
I don’t review....ever. They deserve this praise. I originally got this app to download videos and whatnot. Was very wrong, HOWEVER, I still use this app almost every day. You can do so much. It’s the little things you notice along they way that makes it just simpler to do everything through here. There’s ways to download videos btw they require going to separate sites to do it or something hella complicated. Too much work if you ask me. I have my own method for videos and they work flawlessly. I do not share my methods for privacy reasons...if I did, then everyone would do it and use it irresponsibly and create problems. Anyway, this app continues to amaze and surpass my expectations. Totally worth it, if you give it a chance.
Excellent capabilities, one minor request
by Flurr Ball on 2018/09/13 05:20
Handles various file types unlike any other iOS app I have tried. My only complaint is the accessibility of short (~15 sec) jumps. I can do this by bumping left and right on the cover art in the player but that’s it. The forward/backward buttons (on screen) only skip to the previous/next TRACK. Ideally, I would like to have the option to toggle this to previous/next ~15 seconds, like the functionality in some popular audiobook apps. On a related note, I have become accustomed to two and three taps to headphone controls performing the same short (~15 second) jumps forward and backward, respectively, but Documents responds to this (headphone) input by jumping forward and backward an entire TRACK. This is most useful for files with longer tracks, e.g. audiobooks.
Looking for a feature...
by Tall Cracker on 2017/09/26 06:37
This app is awesome, hands down. There’s one thing I can’t figure out, though: I liked this app so much that I decided to give Spark email a try (also by Readdle) which is now my favorite email app ever. But the problem is that Documents 6 exports emails using the standard iOS email app, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to change the export settings to use Spark instead. I know that you can drag and drop items from Documents into Spark if using the split screen, but it should be easier than that. Especially now that Apple totally screwed up the split screen experience with the new iOS update. It would be so cool if the developers could make that Spark email export option happen!
An essential app for anyone who wants more freedom
by Enrahb on 2018/09/08 03:56
Look, I love iOS. I consider it to be the best phone OS ever. But we have to face the fact that while it’s the safest and most secure that there’s a reason for that. That reason is the very closed system. This app is essential because it allows us to download, organize, and even open many types of files. With a built-in browser it’s like a system in a system. And using iTunes, it’s so easy to transfer files to a computer, whether Mac or Windows. The addition of tabbed browsing in the latest version makes a great app even greater. There are few apps that I consider absolutely essential for both casual and enthusiast iOS users, and this is the one.
Big help for students in this new generation
by Eriza08 on 2017/10/31 01:48
As we all know, the use of electronic gadgets in order to study is not uncommon. Anywhere, one could spot a student holding a tablet or a smart phone as he tries to read or study his lessons. This is because of the availability of study materials in “electronically-friendly” versions. As a medical student, this app has been a lot of help to me as I was able to not only highlight pdf files but also put notes on them. If you transfer this on to your computer, those notes remain and that’s really commendable. So, for students like me out there, this is a really good app to help us in studying especially in this very “techy” generation. 😉
Go to y2mate
by 1up Scourge on 2018/11/26 00:03
To get music go to a search engine and type in y2mate type music or sound you want or put in link but if you type in what you want click the video and play so find out if it’s what you’re looking for but y2mate will Break and you wouldn’t able to play the video so just go to safari and type in and copy the words you put in to safari and paste into y2mate play the video in safari and then you know what the looks like and sounds like and the picture click it in y2mate and then press download I’d recommend MP3 for you I still don’t know what a music file should be Mp3 or Wav and that’s how you download music and sound goodbye
Pretty straightforward, simple but great application.
by Freakin Yatch on 2018/10/15 16:11
I listen to music, alot… Almost every day, and the main problem I have with streaming media is that I hate ads. This app not only helped that problem, it also allowed me to download whatever I wanted to. Another great asset of this app is that if you downloaded music you can go offline and still listen to music. Minimal problems such as not having a button to make a folder is the only thing I have an issue with, other than that everything else has a pretty solid interface If I would grade this more accurately this would be a 4.8 stars. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Good but loses formatting
by MKB58 on 2018/06/08 16:02
It is nice to have all of my documents accessible in one place, and be able to drag and drop, but one thing I have found is that if you just tap a document to open it, it opens in the Readdle app and will lose formatting. For example, I have a Word document with columns and sections. When I tap it to open it in OneDrive, all of the formatting stays as it was in the original document. If I tap it while in Readdle Documents, it opens as a single column and the section dividers are lost too, which also puts things out of order. So only 3 stars, still it works well enough that I will leave it on my iPad Pro.
Love the App...but
by Kjhix31 on 2018/11/27 14:38
I have been using this app for years, and have loved it! I have recommended it to many friends and colleagues. However, as of late, I am having problems with syncing any of my SharePoint folders. Dropbox and Google Drive still work fine, but SharePoint does not. In the past, when syncs have stopped working, I would just delete and reinstall the app. That simple action would solve my problems. This time, unfortunately that hasn’t worked. I contacted support, and after a little bit of a wait, they responded saying they were able to recreate the problem. Here’s to hoping they fix it soon. I have trying to find some sort of replacement for Documents but unfortunately I haven’t found anything else at this time.
Readdle is Righteous
by Darth Ridiculous on 2018/06/03 20:29
Update: Thank you, thank you, thank you for adding a recently deleted feature! I have a file in Documents that's over 100 GB, and I've long lived in fear of accidentally deleting it. You've made an already awesome app essentially perfect. Documents doesn't just play well with Dropbox; for me, they've become lovers. The ability to upload folders — folders! — is a game changer and by itself worth so much more than what Readdle charges. Most of you will hate me for saying this, but I sincerely hope Readde follows the trend and adopts a subscription model because I very much want these developers to stick around.
Nice but bugs
by Anonymous unicorn rainbow on 2019/06/12 11:41
Super useful for school and downloading music and videos. However recently there’s an issue where when I press a song it starts playing a completely different song in a completely different place in the playlist, then when I press the rewind button it goes back to the song I pressed, and if I want to listen to the song before that song, it doesn’t work. I pressed player and I found that it makes a completely random “playlist” where it’s just a bunch of random songs from the playlist that I made of like 200 songs and none of them are in order or anything, just random songs. Please fix this bug
This app literally broke my phone
by itsallbouterika9 on 2018/08/22 20:14
I have had this app for a while now and it worked great until recently. However, within the last month it has really gone downhill. You can’t do anything without 5 million apps popping up. It’s extremely irritating. After the latest update, I decided to give it another go and when I was searching for a website in the app, it redirected me 50 times and tried to get me to call this number that kept popping up on the screen repeatedly. It keeps coming up nonstop and I can’t get out of the app or even turn the phone off to try to reset it (I’m using my iPad for this). It’s from some kind of ad and I just can’t get it to go away. I am on my way to Apple tonight to get it fixed as I cannot be without a phone, but exercise extreme caution when using this app. Frustrated and annoyed is an understatement...
doing weird things...
by Simi🌸 on 2017/10/27 01:57
I used to love this app, it’s very useful, but for some ODD reason, it keeps doing weird things. When I go on the browser to go on a website, sometimes it takes me to a random movie website. Then I try to exit out of it, and it takes me to another website. One time it took me to an inappropriate p*rn website and I got really scared. I had to loose all my data and delete the app. Today, I was trying to go on a website on the browser. Then it took me to the App Store to download Pokémon Go, then I saw “click to remove virus” but then it went to the App Store again. I don’t know what’s going on, but I really don’t want to have to loose all my data and redownload the app! It’s a really good app but it’s scaring me! please fix THIS!

In my documents app I’ve only got 13 pictures and about 10 pdfs , recently i got a message from my iPhone telling me that my storage is full i go to check the storage usage an i see that the documents app is taking up 12GB of space !!!! I did use the app to transfer some movies into another app but i deleted them all afterwards and yeah my recently deleted folder is empty as well now I don’t really know what to do other that deleting the app and reinstalling it but the thought of this happening makes it useless I’d be really happy if you could help me
Fixed? (Was freezing iOS 11)
by 7432one! on 2017/10/05 15:58
Updated review 10/17: Seems to be working again; not sure why it kept freezing up previously (could have been an iOS bug). Currently working well with Apple Files. Raised to 4 stars (but might change to 5 once confidence is restored). Previous review (9/17): The app freezes as soon as it opens and none of my saved files or folders are visible. This happens whether Documents is opened directly, or in the native iOS Files App. Running on iPad 10.5 Pro with the latest iOS update. Hopefully this will be fixed soon, because some of the items are irreplaceable and I would hate to try recreating all those folders!
Date of Photos
by MaleahM01 on 2018/04/30 00:29
I use this app just to transfer photos from my laptop, to my iPhone. It used to make me super happy because it worked perfectly. But recently, it hasn’t been keeping the correct date on the photos in my Camera Roll. The app shows the correct dates, but when looking at them in my Camera Roll, it shows the date and time they were transferred. If I remember correctly, it didn’t do this before. I’m not sure if I’m doing something different or if that’s a change in the app. It also once made my photos completely out of order as well. Which, for someone like me, is very annoying. Other than that, it’s great. Like I said though, it didn’t do this before so I’m a bit confused.
Hands Down, Best Document Saver on iOS 🙌🏻
by 🔥🙊🙈 on 2018/07/08 16:07
1. ORGANIZATION is key! “Documents” offers a clutter-free experience while browsing and saving data; Files list themselves automatically, the moment you begin to use the app. 2. FAST & COMPATIBLE! Any site that allows you to download software (videos, applications, etc.) works ingeniously with the downloads manager. No annoying bugs, or lag time, only smooth sailing. 3. INCOGNITO! Despite any harboring suspicions, this app immediately recognizes 3rd party sites/applications (typically malware) and secures your privacy to prevent harmful bypass traces, which can steal your personal data.
Extremely Useful
by Picky emailer on 2018/02/06 01:00
This is my go to storage app. So easy to use and keeps all my files where I put them. I love the ability to be able to export files, unlike iBooks. My problem is that since updating when I use this program it makes my iPad Pro unresponsive sometimes and extremely slow other times. Even after closing the app and reopening it in the case of my iPad becoming slow the app won’t respond. I have to turn off my iPad and turn it back on. Hope the developer can quash the bug that is causing this problem. Thanks again.
Perfect for recorded audio files!
by CattGry on 2019/03/19 00:50
LOVE this app for storing and transferring my recorded audio tracks. I use its browser feature to download internet videos of the instrumental versions of songs (that I previously was forced to do on my laptop). Then, after I record my voice to the music on a different app, I save it to this one to play it back without the screen going dark and shutting my song off while I’m not active on my screen. (I’m sure there are tons of other great uses for it too—this one is just what I absolutely adore about it!) Such an iPhone game changer!!!
Recent Music/Video Bug
by Jingles2007 on 2018/02/01 18:33
After a recent update to the app, music and video playback have stopped working. Trying to open a music or video file results in the app freezing. This completely ruins the app for me. Before this, the app was great, though a way to convert file formats would be good, and also a way to download HTML embedded videos, rather than having to find a direct link to the video source file. Note: if you have this, and your music is in the iTunes directory, do edit, select all, zip. Then move the zip into a folder like “music” in the root directory. Then, decompress it there, and go back and delete all the ones in the iTunes folder. It seems to be a bug with that folder for me.
I absolutely love the app but...
by Zack_Attack978 on 2017/12/19 01:29
Whenever I download an MP3 i don't like how there isn't any picture and/or album art. It bothers me that there is just a blank music picture instead of something like the cover art! I would like if you guys could be able to add a picture from your camera as the album art and adjust it to fit. And also be able to add who the author of the MP3. That would be nice. But Still it's a great app though I like using it for school, and work. It's nice to be able to install videos on it to watch on the go. It's just the album art and author I want to be able to add. Please add that in the next update!
Great! But has some glitches
by Eggo.OwO on 2019/06/05 06:20
I love this app! I use it to download videos on my tablet and to watch them while I go on other apps, like drawing apps. But it recently has started to glitch every time I open another and have it playing. It will pause itself, and when I press play again, it will repeatedly pause itself once again. It works just fine when I’m on the actual documents app and have the video playing, but only glitches when I’m on another app. This is disappointing, because I’ve used it for months and have had no problems with it playing while on another app until now.
I love this app!!! Get It Before It's Removed From The AppStore!!
by Gunslinger gk on 2018/04/30 02:46
I love this app! I watch videos , look at pictures, listen to music with it, and read comics!!! Best Part? no WiFi needed, anything that you can download you can pretty much view without WiFi. This is amazing. Best part? it's all for free, no subscription, and if it ever were to get one, then is app would completely lose its reputation. The funny part about this is....this isn't a rigged review, this is a great app, and I hope it stays that way. However, this app might be removed from the AppStore for how great it works, so get it fast!!
Simply amazing.

I use this app daily to connect to a NAS. I’ve used it as a network flash drive. I’ve used it to sync pictures to a WebDAV repository stored in the cloud. I’ve used it to watch entire seasons of a TV show directly from an SMB share. I’ve used it to access Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive from a single interface. I’ve followed detailed instruction manuals through the PDF reader. I’ve downloaded multiple files from an open directory. I’ve browsed kid photos with the kids. LOVE THIS APP. Thank you for making such a functional, clean, and pleasing UX. It should win awards!
Best file management app ever
by Logdot nothing on 2019/04/22 04:12
This is by far the best file management app ever. There are so many features that come with it like wireless transfer, a browser where you can download files, add on’s, and much more. It’s easy and quick to locate files and edit pdfs etc. You can easily copy files from your computer to your iOS device and iOS to your computer, or you can share files between devices, which personally is my favorite feature. I recommend this app to everyone that needs a file management app.
Breaks opening files in the iOS Files app
by Morac on 2018/11/27 08:03
There’s 2 bugs in Documents related to iCloud. 1. Files opened in the Files app that open in Documents that are not in the Documents by Readdle iCloud folder don’t actually open. Documents associates itself with a large range of file types, so many files in iOS Files can no longer be opened. A work around for the iPhone is to use force touch, but even that doesn’t work correctly. Another work around for file types that can be associated with other apps is to share one of those files and open it in the other app, then iOS will remember and open all future files of that type in that app instead of Documents. That allows those files to be viewed or edited. 2. All Files in the Documents by Readdle iCloud folder opened in Files get moved to local storage in the Documents app. They are no longer in iCloud. Also any file type (even images) get moved and opened in Documents. This along with #1 leads me to believe Documents can’t open files from iCloud. These are both regressions as they only recently started happening.
Image sometimes breaks.
by Leo Fatalis on 2018/07/21 11:39
I like the draw or sketch and have multiple if not numerous tutorials and examples to help me. I have copied everything that I use from my computer and used this app to hold everything from instruction, shading, lighting, shapes, positions, etc. The problems is that after a while these images would get an error saying that the image is broken, and even the thumbnail doesn’t load like it used to. Only the most recently added photo’s thumbnail is showing. Other than that the app is amazing, and makes moving photos, videos, and documents to your computer easier.
My most used app!
by Rick, Honda Owner on 2019/04/20 01:23
On the surface this app may not look that appealing. However when you dig in & use the app, there is a plethora of ways to use this app. The built in browser lets you download MP3 files, A rarity for the iPhone! I save my favorite coast-to-coast AM podcasts on my device & the ICLOUD drive! I also scan in important documents, manuals, and receipts & save them the same way. I'm sure I am just scratching the surface of us many uses. I only gave it four stars, because I'm sure it can get better. - - - — - - - - - — - - - - - — - - Updating my review from a several years ago. I cannot rave enough about this app Documents. The free version does about 80% of what I need & if you’re a frugal person, you can get free functionality from other apps, however if you buy their package of apps you will get all the functionality in one place & the apps all integrate well. I file everything in Documents, it’s fantastic.
Essential
by Mr_Elmore on 2019/02/11 23:21
I've been using this app for two years, and it's become indespensible as a place to store my PDF documents and other important items that I don't want to lose. Used in conjunction with PDF Expert and the Scanner app, it's pretty much like having a filing cabinet on your machine. I also store quite a few MP4 files because I like the way the app displays the album artwork and allows me the flexibility to organize the files as I please. The developers regularly offer updates, and so I am quite pleased and have no intention of looking elsewhere.
Best apple pencil app
by Hadikm on 2018/10/16 08:39
After trying almost any app for apple pencil writing and note taking, I ended up using this app for almost all my note takings along with PDF Expert app. The compatibility is amazing and it is so easy to integrate hand notes which are in new blank pages with text books taught in class and also the On-page audio recording. It does everything needed for a university class. The audio recording system has much more space for improvement though. It lacks many features, Like sharing, splitting, etc. Thanks Readdle
Best App for iOS Ecosystem
by Wowisthisreal on 2018/02/06 22:16
This app is seriously the best file browser app. It has so many supported clouds like drive,Dropbox, and others which make exporting and even downloading files a breeze. Also, the inbuilt browser makes downloading files off the internet a breeze. Lastly, one feature that is the best is the one to start a small server with a ip address(you can password protect it) on which other devices can go to and upload or download files that you have put on there yourself. Keep up the great work!!
A huge timesaver
by whitefishsc on 2018/02/24 14:47
3 generations of iPads since I first installed this app. I can’t imagine using my iPad Pro without it. This is the best way I have found to get a file put where I want it. If you work with a variety of file types you absolutely need this app. Right now I want to download some brushes into a painting app. With Documents I can download the brush files from my G drive account into Documents, unzip the file then open my painting app and collect the brush files. Now I am ready to start painting. Without Documents, I would still be cursing at lunch time.
