Keeps getting better. Best free app I know of.
by David Pennell on 2021/03/02 08:32
I just got started using the browser in a serious way and it is now twice as awesome an app. Other systems like Dropbox haven’t even BOTHERED to do a sync on iOS, probably because Document’s works so well. And the file system doesnt fight with the new Finder on iOS but it’s still way better. Nothing to add years later still the best!

The garbagage landfill of the files
by GH Park on 2021/03/01 08:13
I have been used Documents useful and quiet satisfied with it, but it turned out that it cannot even delete a single data! However many times I try, it cannot do anything but the files duplicate themselves and irritate me. I am really stressed out by this and I have already downloaded the version, so I got no choice but to write awful comments about the app. PLEASE FIX IT ASAP!!
Great app

This is th best file manager app i ever used on my iphone. Fast, powerful and easy to use Supports various formats and also imports and exports to desktop or between apps are so good. And also i really like to see in future updates devs team add color theme to the app, its only purple, really wish to work with documents in red, blue green or gold color Many thanks👍

Better differentiating "scareware" pop-ups
by jojoapplemaniac on 2021/02/28 07:49
The browser built into this app presents JavaScript alerts as a standard iOS alert panel, making it difficult to differentiate between a legitimate system alert and a fake/scam web alert. Please change this behavior to match Safari's presentation style, where the alert is limited to within the originating webpage, and does not prevent user interaction.
horrible

For quite some time I looked for a nice file manager that was able to open PDFs, word documents, e-books, everything of the sort and I ran into this and this is like everything I imagined. Then I noticed that you can transfer files, which was an added bonus. Whomever is writing this program, great freaking job!!
Really good except for one huge annoyance
by MEGAPIE06 on 2021/02/28 00:43
The (...) button on each file is almost impossible to tap, at least on the iPhone 12 Mini. I have to try at least 6 times times every time I want to download a video, meanwhile the video will start up every time I miss the button by a few pixels. I don’t have thick fingers it’s just a really small area the button will accept a tap from. Please make it bigger.

This allows linking to OneDrive and Google Drive, and that’s great, but it doesn’t link to where people usually keep their media on google: Google Docs and Google Photos. Can’t use them with this app. I’d love to use it. Maybe at a later version.

Crazy overpriced tp upgrade
by @jharris@ on 2021/02/24 03:21
The file management aspect is pretty powerful but good lord, they really push the $50 (per year!) upgrade to simply edit PDF’s. Luckily there’s a myriad of other options on the App Store with much more reasonable pricing that have similar functionality.
Indispensable App
by froglaw48 on 2021/02/23 16:44
I have used Documents since it first appeared and I find it indispensable for document management. Nothing else comes close. I have every Readdle app and they all work flawlessly. New features and innovative development keep them ahead of the game. Everyone I interact with asks what I am using and they immediately download the app. With the addition of VPN and the browser functions work is easier and I feel safer. The only thing I miss is the form creation from PDF Office which is no longer available, but which I still use to create forms.

by Honest Italy on 2021/02/23 00:01
Truly a must have app that is easy to use. The web browser has never failed to block and ad or spam. It opens the spam in another window in the background where you can later close it so it doesn’t interfere with your web browsing. Genius. Other browsers open it up in your main screen or worse transfer you to the App Store.

Apple should buy this company
by QuarterSwede on 2021/02/21 14:27
Readdle makes fantastic apps hands down. This document viewer, and so much more, is able to handle all sorts of formats and has become my definitive file manager. Apple should just buy Readdle and integrate Documents features hidden behind a power user switch in Files. They’d also gain a power PDF viewer and editor, great scanner, and fantastic email app (puts Mail to shame). I don’t work for Readdle and I’m not paid to say this; I’ve just been using their apps for years and they always deliver a great, easy to use experience. Thank you devs!!

Text to speech needs work
by Alex30478 on 2021/02/19 15:54
A wonderful app overall, but the text to speech functionality doesn’t always work well. (1) Jumping pages: often when I scroll while the text to speech is running, it jumps back or forward a page. So the page that is visible and has the highlight going from word to word is not the page that is being narrated. I have to pause the narration, scroll to the correct position, and hit play again. This is very frustrating and makes this feature cumbersome to use. (2) Highlighting current word: this is great when it works, but sometimes the highlight will freeze while the narration continues. Sometimes pausing and restarting fixes this, sometimes it doesn’t. This frequently happens at the bottom of a page when I scroll so the top of the following page is in the center of the screen. (3) The pause/play forward/back bar. The buttons are very small and there is no way (that I know of) to increase the size. This seems very important for an accessibility feature. Also, I feel that this bar should be movable and not stuck at the bottom of the screen. (4) Sometimes continues on to next page, sometimes doesn’t. When it doesn’t I just scroll to the next page and hit play. Not a huge deal, but the inconsistency is odd.

Then in college i used it to file all my syllabus, textbook PDFs, and texts given by my professors. Very nice organization and so helpful when i need to annotate my texts. Using it on my iPad. This app is well supported in which i can just choose to save PDFs into this app.

Shows ads in paid app
by GameNinjazz on 2021/02/14 04:02
I paid for all the readdle apps a while back, but apparently that’s not enough for them. They have added a nonremovable toolbar at the top which if you touch too near it will pop up an advertisement for upgrading to documents pro. Not interested, but it keeps popping up and wasting my time. It’s an insult to paying customers. Bad Readdle!

VPN Included? Sold!
by Reeleejay on 2021/02/10 05:47
Ive been using Readdle/Documents for a couple years. I use it mostly to edit/separate pdf documents. I was frantically searching the internet for a VPN (all paid) when I came across an article about Documents app offering a VPN for all the apps on my phone. Saved me another lame subscription fee. Thanks Readdle
Extremely convenient.
by AZ09XO on 2021/02/10 05:24
Has many more features than the the vanilla file manager, while also veing compatible with it. allows for easy movement of files throughout my phone, and opens most file types that one one usually get. The only gripe I have with the app is the lack of customization of the image viewer. I have images that are a smaller resolution but the viewer does not automatically resize to fit my screen.

Astonishing!
by E_M_Sc on 2021/02/05 10:09
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews (I know... I should break that habit because it’s important to me that developers know their hard work and time meant something and that there is at least ONE person out in the world faring better because of them!). This app blows my mind every time I use it. I honestly didn’t know my iPad had this much potential and power; having a “Finder app” like Documents (or actually more like a “Finder ++” app!) Mac OS equivalent on my iPad has changed the way I work entirely and I’m so happy about it. A big shout out and thank you to Redaddle. Trust me, if you’re smart you’ll give the free trial a shot and see for yourself. Redaddle should tackle making the native Mac file manager more like this next!
Very Promising
by JonWonderX on 2021/02/05 02:09
I love the ability to read my documents easier than with the Files app . I just wish the file manage to was improved to perhaps show up in my Mac’s finder instead of using the browser. Looking forward to the evolution.

Multitool of document apps
by A car kid on 2020/11/30 20:18
I have downloaded this app about a month ago, and during this time I have had no issues with it whatsoever. Obviously with more time I may find a bug or two, but not yet. The app itself has many features, not all of which I have needed to use, but cool ones which I was pleasantly surprised to learn about. This app features a built in VPN, although limited in the free version, is still useful as is, it has a browser within the app, along with all of the expected document managing features like cloud access and whatever it may be. There are for sure some features I don’t even know about. I have dropbox and apple’s files, and neither have as many features as this, I mean, theres only so much improvement you can do to a document app so this app is the same as the other plus more. The only thing that wasn’t optimal for me was during the initial launch where you have example files loaded which simply caused confusion on my part. I’d recommend this app 5/5

(3) The pause/play forward/back bar. The buttons are very small and there is no way (that I know of) to increase the size. This seems very important for an accessibility feature. Also, I feel that this bar should be movable and not stuck at the bottom of the screen. (4) Sometimes continues on to next page, sometimes doesn’t. When it doesn’t I just scroll to the next page and hit play. Not a huge deal, but the inconsistency is odd.
Liking & using more than expected!
by Roxiepup6 on 2020/03/08 06:32
Very nice app to help organize all the files as well as see them...and then do something with them as needed. It is an Efficient app and I use it a lot. But I do wish they would do a better job INTEGRATING their apps to work together much more efficiently, and auto magical...and not need to go searching through the next doc or pic managing app u need. Like the printer app they have should open automatically after u send a web doc or photo to it but you have to hunt for the app...THEN name and save the file or pic to manage the data! That’s very cumbersome. I also wish the printer app work with this app. I’d love for them to make an app that allows us to manage our photos and screen shots right away as we take the photo or screen capture. I have 1000s of screen shots in a mess even though I try to use photo folders. But they are too small of photos to see to do mass classification. I like this Doc app because u can tag things easily and also see them reasonably well (although I Wish there was a “space less” version that has the images as big as possible so we can see them and peg it with the correct tags when we are doing group classifications.
Was the best, not anymore with 7
by JB102112 on 2019/12/10 15:22
I use this app everyday for PDF annotation with my apple pencil. Previously you could have 4 different pens saved with different colors, opacities, and thicknesses. Now you only get one and you have to manually change the settings every time you want to use a different color. The only way around this I can find is if you pay $50 a year to save different writing utensils in the favorites. I am extremely disappointed as I don't have the time to manually change the color and thickness every 30 seconds while I am switching back and forth for work. Also, before with the apple pencil, I could use the pencil once with one of the mark up tools and after that my finger would only scroll. Now each time I switch writing utensils, when I attempt to scroll with my finger, it writes instead of scrolling. Even when selecting the utensil with the pencil, it often requires me to select it several times before it will write. When switching between different lined pdf documents, the lines will often disappear and I will have to quit the app and restart it for the lines to come back. Used to be 5 stars, now down to 1 until they fix these issues. I am really disappointed, this was the most useful app and I loved everything about it, but this update has made me want to find a new app to replace this one.
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?
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.
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!
I am irritated by one slight change
by Gunslinger gk on 2020/12/28 04:22
The app used to be absolutely fantastic for file managing and such. Recently, I updated the app to gain access to some new features; I've been putting off installing the updates, due to the fact my fears might be realized (which they were). I'll just get straight to the point, because I want this fixed as soon as possible: I cannot download any jpgs/pngs directly to the app online anymore. I can only download them to my camera roll. I thought this might be a change in some sites I've been using for some time now, but not a single one works! I can only convert them into PDFs. I want there to be an option for BOTH. This is the biggest drawback to me, as I use this app almost exclusively for this purpose. I hope this issue is addressed soon, as this was a feature that I relied on heavily. This should not be something locked behind a subscription service (this is a basic function and should not be something I am charged for, the rest of the premium features I understand). Sincerely, Anna Kakomanolis
Just a couple hickups
by Mxkerr2012 on 2021/01/19 23:11
I am a student of languages and use documents for all it's worth. I have hundreds of books. Some of which number in the thousands of pages including multivolume encyclopedias and dictionaries. It is absolutely excellent but there is room for improvement. I am using a 2020 iPad pro with 256GB of storage and 6gb memory, but it still fails to display covers of my books. This is seemingly random happening to some big books and other small documents. The covers still show up in apple files app. I use the apple pencil 2nd gen and sometimes the app does not reject my palm. It really struggles with notebooks imported from good notes in the PDF format. Sometimes my documents kick me out while Im reading them. Not sure if this is a readdle issue or an apple issue but it's really annoying when Im reading and it has to close, update, then I can reopen. For the time it saves me and the usefulness it is the best app out there, but there's still room for improvement. Hopefully my feedback doesn't fall on deaf ears.
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
5 Stars Well Deserved
by Saeid Moridi on 2019/11/25 14:14
I don’t write reviews at all. In fact, I may have only written two or three in the past six years; but I love this app so much that it seemed unfair not to write one. It has made my life so much easier! I have had it for so many years, since I had a 5S. I was looking for an app to transfer data to my phone without having to sync it with iTunes, which was a nightmare. I googled and found Documents. Oh, how much I love this app! It was my download manager way before Safari added the option, and the fact that the downloads run in the background means that I can use other apps at the same time. (Some users don’t know what a huge help this is.) I use it to play music, movies (it freaking supports the MKV format, you guys are dope!), and so much more. I just wanted to thank the team for making such a great and smooth app! Well done. Greetings from Iran.
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.
Amazing but things come to a end
by Yo boo roro on 2018/01/10 02:13

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!! SCAM WARNING!!!!!!!!
by Kitten lover cat lover on 2020/05/15 18:39
I am a long time explorer of documents (this app) I do a lot of changing like mov to mp4 but over time I realized I wanted to use mod for Minecraft (I’m 12) so I used documents changed it to Mc pack and..... bingo it worked. But a update came along and I decided to update the app. I load in because I need to do pdf editing and boom. It hit me. 50 dollars a year just for a simple pdf and .file editor wow. This app has just baited and switched us they wanted to make us pay money to use a small editor. Kids have small Standards but this is unreasonable people have things to pay for I can just use google docs for free. And on top of that I clicked the x on the top left and it said starting subscription... done! Like why? It billed 50$ then I clicked cancel and it taxed another 50$ and said after the next payment it would cancel but oh guess what it never canceled! So I contacted apple and they said it was canceled. So they have been taxing us! So my mom cancel her credit card. And the app said unable to pay. And the costumer service hung up. So DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT IS A SCAM!!!
I’ve had enough!
by C.M. Cook on 2020/11/02 19:55
I have used Documents for years. I also use Spark and PDF Expert… for years. But today I needed to access a file that I have saved as a favorite and needed now for a business meeting. The reason you save it as a favorite is so it immediately opens, without the need to download. However, after the last iOS update, the favorite area is devoid of files. So, a file I needed to access immediately, was not there–I navigated to where it is on the iCloud drive and attempted to access it, but was notified that it needs to be downloaded. Problem is, Documents was also trying to download every other file on the iCloud drive. I could not stop all the other files, nor reorder a queue, so I am stuck red-faced in my meeting, wholly unable to access the file. I have used numerous Readdle apps without a thought for many, many years. However, I was just royally screwed by Documents. The morale is that this app is unreliable in a business context: the moment you don’t even consider that it may be unreliable, it will screw you over.
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!
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!
LACKING, PLEASE ADD THE FOLLOWING!!!
by SkyNet.236391 on 2019/10/31 08:20
Your app is the one of best for all document and file manger apps, however it is lacking a few important items needed for a true document manager and editing app. It is strongly suggested that you add these capabilities before Apple develops a full file manager app that includes them and steal your competitive edge: 1. Ruler and protractor to draw curves for hand drawing and drafting capabilities. 2. Custom pdf importing where a user can import any size template he or she wants. For example, an engineering student can easily write engineering calculations with ease with a pen and a rule. IOS does this but lacks all the features in Documents. It is steps ahead but will lose ground if it does not evolve and adapt. Give it full writing, drawing and drafting capability as if it was pencil, mechanical pen or pen and paper and notepad. Keep it simple and treat a pdf as if it was a sheet of paper any size with any texture. Continue to make your app adaptable to the users needs instead of forcing the user to adapt your tools. Again, the best approach is to treat a pdf as a sheet of paper and giving flexibility. This app has potential to be the best but still is lacking. Once the app is like using real paper then it will be truly a 5 star app. I hope you act on my suggestions. AW
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?
Absolutely love it
by Iccekfan on 2020/03/21 06:39
I absolutely love this! It’s a amazing app to use (I use it on IOS). I mostly use it so I can listen to songs or podcasts while I work on school homework. Now this is my complaint that I want to being up currently on some videos and some that I have already downloaded before that worked keep on saying “Service not Available”. Now I do it the same way as always do. Copy link for song (from the share button), paste it in the bar, press the arrow, download, and done. Now it’s just doing the no service thing. And when I listen to the music or podcasts while it’s closed it doesn’t go to the next automatically (that’s just a nitpick on that problem). However even with that it’s still and amazing app and I live using it so it still gets a 5 stars from me.
Great product!
by T Jace on 2020/08/11 17:41
I use this app for managing files & PDF’s across a lot of platforms. I actually use this to access DropBox, SharePoint & Google Drive docs w/o using the other apps. Everything in one location makes it easy. I work in new housing construction, and use the tools here do similar (light-weight comparatively of course) markups to what you can do in PlanGrid on house plans, but in a lot cheaper & more cohesive platform for small projects. I use my iPencil to take notes when reviewing building sites, and love that I can take pictures & drag them directly onto the plans. It is so easy to save docs/Pdf’s to SharePoint for the at-office team to see, or to iCloud to save space on my iPad. There are a lot of tools within Documents that make this my most used app on my iPad.
Player list editing is broken
by unhappy customer 73 on 2020/06/20 22:41
When songs are deleted from PLAYER tab list or rearranged there, they keep coming back and/or returning to their old positions. After several weeks of using app, I still cannot figure out a way to delete songs that would reliably delete them, which means that my player queue keeps growing, and all attempts to rearrange it in proper order are failing, too. This is extremely annoying - there are some songs that I had deleted dozens of times, and still they keep coming back as soon as something else is imported from browser download folder - even though these songs have been long deleted from that browser folder, too. And of course, it means that this player list keeps growing no matter what I do - I'm seriously thinking about using delete app and reinstall as the only way to clear it available to me, even though I'll have to recreate it from scratch after that.
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.
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.
Serious Search Function Issue
by SELLDL on 2019/12/10 03:59
I’m using version 7.0.2 on an iPad air2 running OS 13.2. The search function is critical for me. I search hundreds of documents at a time for key words then copy and past paragraphs containing those key words into a Pages file. Once the search has been performed, if you stay within Documents it will hold the search results. The moment you leave Documents to go to Pages and then return to Documents the search data is gone and the search has to be performed again. Effectively, I can no longer use Documents for searching, ever so unfortunately. There are also multiple other smaller annoying bugs to deal with. My advice, re-release the last version 6...... before version 7.0 and work out the bugs before putting out a product that is not up to the usual Documents high standards.
Lagish Looks
by eChangX on 2019/11/29 06:45
It’s a great app, can’t complain there. Have enjoyed it since the day I started using it but the newest update are making it lag these days. If I open two tabs or switch between tabs or during when it rotates when using the browser is when the lags try to show up. And also, the last update, when I open more than two tab simultaneously, everything messes up. It gets stuck at tab switching and makes everything look funny. The main tab I was trying to view remains big but the other tabs show small at top and bottom like a single page with all the tabs previewed. Do I have to uninstall and reinstall the app? This uninstall and reinstalling apps after a major update is becoming to show more openly and I find that disturbing with this iPhone business these days
The tool that overcomes the many shortcomings of the apple secure eco system
by K0xyK0x on 2020/12/23 06:07
No one can deny how the sandbox approach that apple takes towards IOS security is super effective, and it has its own set backs and problems for power users. Documents is one tool that saves the day.. I am what you call an old school power user. I use plenty of devices . Without Documents ,my iPad would have been collecting dust.. I use it daily on a variety of tasks from exchanging documents to other devices , viewing PDFs , extracting archives etc.. In a nutshell ,it allows me to achieve 95% of my file management needs. The other 5% would only be achieved if apple dropped the sandbox approach and started using a secure central file storage system on the IOS eco system. Thank your Readdle.
Great, but annoying advertisement with update.
by Mr. SilverFox on 2020/11/28 23:24
I use this app for all my PDF files. I have an extensive library of manuals and this is great for searching, annotating, and bookmarking. I would consider it a five-star app if not for the issue below: However, after the last update, every time I open the thumbnail view of my PDFs, an advertisement to pay $90 a year for enhanced functionality appears. If I close the ad, select a page, and select thumbnail view again, the ad comes right back again. This is extremely annoying and reduces the functionality of the app that I’ve already paid for. I do not want the enhanced features and should not have to deal with this aggravation because I elect to not purchase a subscription. If this problem is not corrected I will be switching to another app for using my PDF library.
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.
Excellent File Manager with Extraordinary Functionality
by Jacob  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.
Astonishing!
by E_M_Sc on 2021/02/05 10:09
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews (I know... I should break that habit because it’s important to me that developers know their hard work and time meant something and that there is at least ONE person out in the world faring better because of them!). This app blows my mind every time I use it. I honestly didn’t know my iPad had this much potential and power; having a “Finder app” like Documents (or actually more like a “Finder ++” app!) Mac OS equivalent on my iPad has changed the way I work entirely and I’m so happy about it. A big shout out and thank you to Redaddle. Trust me, if you’re smart you’ll give the free trial a shot and see for yourself. Redaddle should tackle making the native Mac file manager more like this next!
Amazing app with one large flaw
by DesaiM12 on 2020/04/11 14:13
This is my go to app to study on. The multiple tabs/windows that update each other instantly. The ability to have multiple highlighted quickly to access in the favorites toolbar. The only flaw i have found is with a missing tool. Switching from highlighter to non highlighter every time i want to define a word and then having to click the word and then the definition option slows down my workflow. This would definitely be a 5 star app if there was a tool I could add to my favorites bar that would let my click a word and its definition automatically popped up. Other than that this is an amazing app and definitely worth it’s subscription price. Thank you for this app!
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!
Incredible media player with pip
by Wizardhater on 2020/06/02 03:13
I was looking for a movie player that would play videos in a small box (picture in picture) so I could multitask and watch a show. Apple’s app is perfect except you can only play iTunes purchases. I looked all over until I saw on reddit someone mention this app. I works perfectly for what I needed it for plus. The interface is perfect for uploading videos to my iPad. I works perfectly with my Dropbox. A lot of others I try give me no description errors. This is a must have app. Especially for movies and tv shows. I have the Apple app, Plex, and this app on my dock permanently. The name of this app doesn’t do it justice because it’s far more then documents. Amazing job.
Just A Little Issue
by 12vtan on 2019/12/01 14:42
So I’ve been using this app for a little over 2 years now and I really love it. I use it to download music and videos that I could watch and listen to offline. I’ve had problems with it before but it never became too difficult since I would always find a way to fix it but just recently, I’ve tried to download a song I have been listening to and it downloaded like I expected. I looked at the cover and it did not show a picture but it did show a file on it and when I clicked on it, it would tell me that it could not open and I would have to open it from another page. I do not know how to fix it and I would really love a solution since this is my really all time favorite app and it’s currently the only one available for me to use freely how I wanted.
My already music and video files won’t play anymore
by flexi_🖤 on 2020/09/02 21:08
I’ve already done 2 reviews on it , no update to solve it . This problem has been going since december 2019 now and i’ve had the app since 2018 and had no problem. Every time i open the app , the files shows downloading pending when they da already been . why? I can’t listen anymore to them . Only a bit of them will play. I used to listen to all my downloaded music With no problem . I saved them on documents cloud , verified if i had space ( yes , readdle documents take only 1.5gb out of 5gb) and i still don’t see the problem... Tried to save one music file to device, it worked by why not on cloud anymore , again i have a lot of space left! Update: tried their solutions by toggling off and on the cloud but nothing. Still the same problem. Update2: not once of their solutions worked and at the end , they said to record the screen and bla bla . So to redo everything again. Then they stopped reaching. I gave up and some weeks later , all my music files were somehow downloaded so playing again instead of some. However , after downloading 4 more music , the same problem came back . At this point , i might give up as i still have a lot of space and also for some reason , in the music file info , it shows that they have duplicated ( have 200 but it shows 400)...
Can’t say enough good things!!! ❤️💙💚💛🧡
by Fashaezzle on 2020/04/18 23:04
There are literally a hundred reasons to download this app!! It has turned my mobile devices into full fledged computers and allows me flexibility I can’t find with any other app or combination of apps. You can use it as an eReader for books (it’s great!), you can listen to music, you can file your documents, you can listen to audiobooks, you can seamlessly interface with iCloud, you can mark up PDFs—you can do almost ANYTHING with this app!! I downloaded this app for a single use, and I now use it for too many things to count. I LOVE IT!! Readdle, you guys are completely amazing and have transformed my mobile experience. Keep up the amazing innovation and interoperability! 💖
I miss the older version of documents
by austin willis wes on 2020/08/20 02:57
The app is really awesome and i love the fact that u can easily store and download music files on it for when u want to listen to ur music offline. But ever since that update from the 6th version to this 7th one which is the current version right now, I really dont like how the background doesn’t reflect the same colors of the album cover or whatever song I downloaded and now its just plain white all over and i dont appreciate that. I could understand if it was for the dark mode but even the dark mode isnt that dark or 100% black. I really miss the old documents and i hope the app goes back to the way it was. But overall its still a great app.
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.
Need another update
by Syncnester on 2020/03/31 23:46
I love this app for sure but now it’s like most of the people says in here we can’t open the App. In offline mode it says the app needed to verify and so on.... So I open data then I enter the app and then it crashed and disappear, same thing happened when I open with the wifi too. Now I even go to AppStore and tried to open but its open only the front page logo and then disappear but it’s always in the on the go app. Pls fix this, like everyone said this is a really great app. But if u guys provide with the update fix for the app crash, I am hesitating to make future updates. Because this kind of thing happened twice already. However it was a really great app, I wish to use in it great condition. Thanks.
Love it, so helpful
by karl3619... I'm honest on 2020/02/24 20:45
If you’re fine with not being able to share files, I 10/10 recommend this amazing app. It has a browser extension from which you can download files and it will save it to the local storage. It has a nice look and honestly you can argue that the browser is even better than safari or google chrome. You can access your drive files from there, too. So easy to navigate and great for downloading + watching videos, because you can pretty much do anything by tapping and swiping or on your keyboard. So, again, if you’re not looking to share files, definitely use this over any other service! Keep it up!
Two Issues
by WarriorWizard365 on 2020/01/03 03:44
Giving fourstars because I love this app, and there’s two issues. If they both get fixed then I can give 5. So, I’m trying look look in my “downloads folder” which has 30 items, but it’s saying it’s empty, but when I search for them with the bar, there they are. So not the biggest deal, but it is to me. Another issue is with the recent refresh. So, everything looks better, a lot cleaner and I like it, but my old MP3 files still have the old style to them, which is fine, but I know for a fact there’s a new MP3 file look, and it makes my files look bad when the first 50 are one way, but after the update if I try to add another, it looks different. Please fix this. Especially the second one
I am not able to play this song next
by Corey Nova on 2020/09/15 08:40
I’ll cut to the chase, I downloaded this app because I like to listen to music and I’m able to download it and play it on the go. The reason to why I have given it four stars because I am not able to organize the music that I downloaded the way how I want it. There is a specific song that I would like to play next but I’m not able to do so simply because I’m not able to organize it in that order. I will at the very least acknowledge the ability of playing an MP3 audio off-line without any interruptions whatsoever. Perhaps on the next update, the person who has created this application will grant us, users, the ability to place downloadable content in order
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. 😉

bring it back
by Sinai.Daqiqi on 2020/11/25 09:19
document 5 was very like able for what?!!!! i tell you! there was an option that would allow you to access the music library on phone (( apple music)) and from there you were able to share your own music that you synced from iTunes to phone on whatsapp or telegram. unfortunately in documents 6 this ability has been removed!!!! so this app is like any other apps that work as File-manager. i contacted the support team but they didn't understand the point and guided me wrong about how to share music files. anyway i'll be glad to see that option back again.

Keeps getting better. Best free app I know of.
by David Pennell on 2021/03/02 08:32
I just got started using the browser in a serious way and it is now twice as awesome an app. Other systems like Dropbox haven’t even BOTHERED to do a sync on iOS, probably because Document’s works so well. And the file system doesnt fight with the new Finder on iOS but it’s still way better. Nothing to add years later still the best!

I have been used Documents useful and quiet satisfied with it, but it turned out that it cannot even delete a single data!

I am really stressed out by this and I have already downloaded the version, so I got no choice but to write awful comments about the app. PLEASE FIX IT ASAP!!

Better differentiating "scareware" pop-ups
by jojoapplemaniac on 2021/02/28 07:49
The browser built into this app presents JavaScript alerts as a standard iOS alert panel, making it difficult to differentiate between a legitimate system alert and a fake/scam web alert. Please change this behavior to match Safari's presentation style, where the alert is limited to within the originating webpage, and does not prevent user interaction.

Really good except for one huge annoyance
by MEGAPIE06 on 2021/02/28 00:43
The (...) button on each file is almost impossible to tap, at least on the iPhone 12 Mini. I have to try at least 6 times times every time I want to download a video, meanwhile the video will start up every time I miss the button by a few pixels. I don’t have thick fingers it’s just a really small area the button will accept a tap from. Please make it bigger.

by @jharris@ on 2021/02/24 03:21
The file management aspect is pretty powerful but good lord, they really push the $50 (per year!) upgrade to simply edit PDF’s. Luckily there’s a myriad of other options on the App Store with much more reasonable pricing that have similar functionality.
Indispensable App
by froglaw48 on 2021/02/23 16:44
I have used Documents since it first appeared and I find it indispensable for document management. Nothing else comes close. I have every Readdle app and they all work flawlessly. New features and innovative development keep them ahead of the game. Everyone I interact with asks what I am using and they immediately download the app. With the addition of VPN and the browser functions work is easier and I feel safer. The only thing I miss is the form creation from PDF Office which is no longer available, but which I still use to create forms.

Truly a must have app that is easy to use. The web browser has never failed to block and ad or spam. It opens the spam in another window in the background where you can later close it so it doesn’t interfere with your web browsing. Genius. Other browsers open it up in your main screen or worse transfer you to the App Store.

Apple should buy this company
by QuarterSwede on 2021/02/21 14:27
Readdle makes fantastic apps hands down. This document viewer, and so much more, is able to handle all sorts of formats and has become my definitive file manager. Apple should just buy Readdle and integrate Documents features hidden behind a power user switch in Files. They’d also gain a power PDF viewer and editor, great scanner, and fantastic email app (puts Mail to shame). I don’t work for Readdle and I’m not paid to say this; I’ve just been using their apps for years and they always deliver a great, easy to use experience. Thank you devs!!

by Alex30478 on 2021/02/19 15:54
A wonderful app overall, but the text to speech functionality doesn’t always work well. (1) Jumping pages: often when I scroll while the text to speech is running, it jumps back or forward a page. So the page that is visible and has the highlight going from word to word is not the page that is being narrated. I have to pause the narration, scroll to the correct position, and hit play again. This is very frustrating and makes this feature cumbersome to use. (2) Highlighting current word: this is great when it works, but sometimes the highlight will freeze while the narration continues. Sometimes pausing and restarting fixes this, sometimes it doesn’t. This frequently happens at the bottom of a page when I scroll so the top of the following page is in the center of the screen. (3) The pause/play forward/back bar. The buttons are very small and there is no way (that I know of) to increase the size. This seems very important for an accessibility feature. Also, I feel that this bar should be movable and not stuck at the bottom of the screen. (4) Sometimes continues on to next page, sometimes doesn’t. When it doesn’t I just scroll to the next page and hit play. Not a huge deal, but the inconsistency is odd.

Overall, this is one my favorite apps on my phone. However, the app didn’t play the next videos automatically anymore. Please bring that feature back! Thank you
the pen and marker do not work in horizontal mode.
by ha ng on 2021/02/18 12:03
The pen and marker won't work if you zoom in on the screen. They have been asking for log files for months without resolving this issue. I've sent them log files several times, but I think it's an automatic reply email. They keep asking for log files.

Excellent study tool
by spacezzuzu on 2021/02/15 16:28
Been using it since high school and now I’m in college. Can be used to download videos to watch. Really nice to watch study videos at school where you dont have a personal WiFi. Then in college i used it to file all my syllabus, textbook PDFs, and texts given by my professors. Very nice organization and so helpful when i need to annotate my texts. Using it on my iPad. This app is well supported in which i can just choose to save PDFs into this app.
Thanks for everey things

Shows ads in paid app
by GameNinjazz on 2021/02/14 04:02
I paid for all the readdle apps a while back, but apparently that’s not enough for them. They have added a nonremovable toolbar at the top which if you touch too near it will pop up an advertisement for upgrading to documents pro. Not interested, but it keeps popping up and wasting my time. It’s an insult to paying customers. Bad Readdle!

I wish it would store data without icloud, I no longer have icloud and I've lost so many backcups from deletes this app. I really wish there was a log in system that let you save backups in order to get them back. Like google drive
Just the best file manager!
by Jacob talley on 2021/02/12 03:54
This is just amazing, better than the stock Files app! And you don’t have to use your PC to put music on your iPad/iPhone, this app is basically a music app too! 10/10 would download again

Deleted Stuff Take Up Storage Space

Hi I apologize for the 2 star review. I love the app but this issue has to get your attention. Things cannot be deleted from my iPad after I download them in the App. Please fix this.
VPN Included? Sold!
by Reeleejay on 2021/02/10 05:47
Ive been using Readdle/Documents for a couple years. I use it mostly to edit/separate pdf documents. I was frantically searching the internet for a VPN (all paid) when I came across an article about Documents app offering a VPN for all the apps on my phone. Saved me another lame subscription fee. Thanks Readdle
Extremely convenient.
by AZ09XO on 2021/02/10 05:24
Has many more features than the the vanilla file manager, while also veing compatible with it. allows for easy movement of files throughout my phone, and opens most file types that one one usually get. The only gripe I have with the app is the lack of customization of the image viewer. I have images that are a smaller resolution but the viewer does not automatically resize to fit my screen.
Wow!

Hanging and locking up

Astonishing!
by E_M_Sc on 2021/02/05 10:09
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews (I know... I should break that habit because it’s important to me that developers know their hard work and time meant something and that there is at least ONE person out in the world faring better because of them!). This app blows my mind every time I use it. I honestly didn’t know my iPad had this much potential and power; having a “Finder app” like Documents (or actually more like a “Finder ++” app!) Mac OS equivalent on my iPad has changed the way I work entirely and I’m so happy about it. A big shout out and thank you to Redaddle. Trust me, if you’re smart you’ll give the free trial a shot and see for yourself. Redaddle should tackle making the native Mac file manager more like this next!
Very Promising
by JonWonderX on 2021/02/05 02:09
I love the ability to read my documents easier than with the Files app . I just wish the file manage to was improved to perhaps show up in my Mac’s finder instead of using the browser. Looking forward to the evolution.

Multitool of document apps
by A car kid on 2020/11/30 20:18
I have downloaded this app about a month ago, and during this time I have had no issues with it whatsoever. Obviously with more time I may find a bug or two, but not yet. The app itself has many features, not all of which I have needed to use, but cool ones which I was pleasantly surprised to learn about. This app features a built in VPN, although limited in the free version, is still useful as is, it has a browser within the app, along with all of the expected document managing features like cloud access and whatever it may be. There are for sure some features I don’t even know about. I have dropbox and apple’s files, and neither have as many features as this, I mean, theres only so much improvement you can do to a document app so this app is the same as the other plus more. The only thing that wasn’t optimal for me was during the initial launch where you have example files loaded which simply caused confusion on my part. I’d recommend this app 5/5

Liking & using more than expected!
by Roxiepup6 on 2020/03/08 06:32
Very nice app to help organize all the files as well as see them...and then do something with them as needed. It is an Efficient app and I use it a lot. But I do wish they would do a better job INTEGRATING their apps to work together much more efficiently, and auto magical...and not need to go searching through the next doc or pic managing app u need. Like the printer app they have should open automatically after u send a web doc or photo to it but you have to hunt for the app...THEN name and save the file or pic to manage the data! That’s very cumbersome. I also wish the printer app work with this app. I’d love for them to make an app that allows us to manage our photos and screen shots right away as we take the photo or screen capture. I have 1000s of screen shots in a mess even though I try to use photo folders. But they are too small of photos to see to do mass classification. I like this Doc app because u can tag things easily and also see them reasonably well (although I Wish there was a “space less” version that has the images as big as possible so we can see them and peg it with the correct tags when we are doing group classifications.
Was the best, not anymore with 7
by JB102112 on 2019/12/10 15:22
I use this app everyday for PDF annotation with my apple pencil. Previously you could have 4 different pens saved with different colors, opacities, and thicknesses. Now you only get one and you have to manually change the settings every time you want to use a different color. The only way around this I can find is if you pay $50 a year to save different writing utensils in the favorites. I am extremely disappointed as I don't have the time to manually change the color and thickness every 30 seconds while I am switching back and forth for work. Also, before with the apple pencil, I could use the pencil once with one of the mark up tools and after that my finger would only scroll. Now each time I switch writing utensils, when I attempt to scroll with my finger, it writes instead of scrolling. Even when selecting the utensil with the pencil, it often requires me to select it several times before it will write. When switching between different lined pdf documents, the lines will often disappear and I will have to quit the app and restart it for the lines to come back. Used to be 5 stars, now down to 1 until they fix these issues. I am really disappointed, this was the most useful app and I loved everything about it, but this update has made me want to find a new app to replace this one.
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?
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.
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!
I am irritated by one slight change
by Gunslinger gk on 2020/12/28 04:22
The app used to be absolutely fantastic for file managing and such. Recently, I updated the app to gain access to some new features; I've been putting off installing the updates, due to the fact my fears might be realized (which they were). I'll just get straight to the point, because I want this fixed as soon as possible: I cannot download any jpgs/pngs directly to the app online anymore. I can only download them to my camera roll. I thought this might be a change in some sites I've been using for some time now, but not a single one works! I can only convert them into PDFs. I want there to be an option for BOTH. This is the biggest drawback to me, as I use this app almost exclusively for this purpose. I hope this issue is addressed soon, as this was a feature that I relied on heavily. This should not be something locked behind a subscription service (this is a basic function and should not be something I am charged for, the rest of the premium features I understand). Sincerely, Anna Kakomanolis
Just a couple hickups
by Mxkerr2012 on 2021/01/19 23:11
I am a student of languages and use documents for all it's worth. I have hundreds of books. Some of which number in the thousands of pages including multivolume encyclopedias and dictionaries. It is absolutely excellent but there is room for improvement. I am using a 2020 iPad pro with 256GB of storage and 6gb memory, but it still fails to display covers of my books. This is seemingly random happening to some big books and other small documents. The covers still show up in apple files app. I use the apple pencil 2nd gen and sometimes the app does not reject my palm. It really struggles with notebooks imported from good notes in the PDF format. Sometimes my documents kick me out while Im reading them. Not sure if this is a readdle issue or an apple issue but it's really annoying when Im reading and it has to close, update, then I can reopen. For the time it saves me and the usefulness it is the best app out there, but there's still room for improvement. Hopefully my feedback doesn't fall on deaf ears.
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
5 Stars Well Deserved
by Saeid Moridi on 2019/11/25 14:14
I don’t write reviews at all. In fact, I may have only written two or three in the past six years; but I love this app so much that it seemed unfair not to write one. It has made my life so much easier! I have had it for so many years, since I had a 5S. I was looking for an app to transfer data to my phone without having to sync it with iTunes, which was a nightmare. I googled and found Documents. Oh, how much I love this app! It was my download manager way before Safari added the option, and the fact that the downloads run in the background means that I can use other apps at the same time. (Some users don’t know what a huge help this is.) I use it to play music, movies (it freaking supports the MKV format, you guys are dope!), and so much more. I just wanted to thank the team for making such a great and smooth app! Well done. Greetings from Iran.
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.
Amazing but things come to a end

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!! SCAM WARNING!!!!!!!!
by Kitten lover cat lover on 2020/05/15 18:39
I am a long time explorer of documents (this app) I do a lot of changing like mov to mp4 but over time I realized I wanted to use mod for Minecraft (I’m 12) so I used documents changed it to Mc pack and..... bingo it worked. But a update came along and I decided to update the app. I load in because I need to do pdf editing and boom. It hit me. 50 dollars a year just for a simple pdf and .file editor wow. This app has just baited and switched us they wanted to make us pay money to use a small editor. Kids have small Standards but this is unreasonable people have things to pay for I can just use google docs for free. And on top of that I clicked the x on the top left and it said starting subscription... done! Like why? It billed 50$ then I clicked cancel and it taxed another 50$ and said after the next payment it would cancel but oh guess what it never canceled! So I contacted apple and they said it was canceled. So they have been taxing us! So my mom cancel her credit card. And the app said unable to pay. And the costumer service hung up. So DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT IS A SCAM!!!
I’ve had enough!
by C.M. Cook on 2020/11/02 19:55
I have used Documents for years. I also use Spark and PDF Expert… for years. But today I needed to access a file that I have saved as a favorite and needed now for a business meeting. The reason you save it as a favorite is so it immediately opens, without the need to download. However, after the last iOS update, the favorite area is devoid of files. So, a file I needed to access immediately, was not there–I navigated to where it is on the iCloud drive and attempted to access it, but was notified that it needs to be downloaded. Problem is, Documents was also trying to download every other file on the iCloud drive. I could not stop all the other files, nor reorder a queue, so I am stuck red-faced in my meeting, wholly unable to access the file. I have used numerous Readdle apps without a thought for many, many years. However, I was just royally screwed by Documents. The morale is that this app is unreliable in a business context: the moment you don’t even consider that it may be unreliable, it will screw you over.
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!
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!
LACKING, PLEASE ADD THE FOLLOWING!!!
by SkyNet.236391 on 2019/10/31 08:20
Your app is the one of best for all document and file manger apps, however it is lacking a few important items needed for a true document manager and editing app. It is strongly suggested that you add these capabilities before Apple develops a full file manager app that includes them and steal your competitive edge: 1. Ruler and protractor to draw curves for hand drawing and drafting capabilities. 2. Custom pdf importing where a user can import any size template he or she wants. For example, an engineering student can easily write engineering calculations with ease with a pen and a rule. IOS does this but lacks all the features in Documents. It is steps ahead but will lose ground if it does not evolve and adapt. Give it full writing, drawing and drafting capability as if it was pencil, mechanical pen or pen and paper and notepad. Keep it simple and treat a pdf as if it was a sheet of paper any size with any texture. Continue to make your app adaptable to the users needs instead of forcing the user to adapt your tools. Again, the best approach is to treat a pdf as a sheet of paper and giving flexibility. This app has potential to be the best but still is lacking. Once the app is like using real paper then it will be truly a 5 star app. I hope you act on my suggestions. AW
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?
Absolutely love it
by Iccekfan on 2020/03/21 06:39
I absolutely love this! It’s a amazing app to use (I use it on IOS). I mostly use it so I can listen to songs or podcasts while I work on school homework. Now this is my complaint that I want to being up currently on some videos and some that I have already downloaded before that worked keep on saying “Service not Available”. Now I do it the same way as always do. Copy link for song (from the share button), paste it in the bar, press the arrow, download, and done. Now it’s just doing the no service thing. And when I listen to the music or podcasts while it’s closed it doesn’t go to the next automatically (that’s just a nitpick on that problem). However even with that it’s still and amazing app and I live using it so it still gets a 5 stars from me.
Great product!
by T Jace on 2020/08/11 17:41
I use this app for managing files & PDF’s across a lot of platforms. I actually use this to access DropBox, SharePoint & Google Drive docs w/o using the other apps. Everything in one location makes it easy. I work in new housing construction, and use the tools here do similar (light-weight comparatively of course) markups to what you can do in PlanGrid on house plans, but in a lot cheaper & more cohesive platform for small projects. I use my iPencil to take notes when reviewing building sites, and love that I can take pictures & drag them directly onto the plans. It is so easy to save docs/Pdf’s to SharePoint for the at-office team to see, or to iCloud to save space on my iPad. There are a lot of tools within Documents that make this my most used app on my iPad.
Player list editing is broken
by unhappy customer 73 on 2020/06/20 22:41
When songs are deleted from PLAYER tab list or rearranged there, they keep coming back and/or returning to their old positions. After several weeks of using app, I still cannot figure out a way to delete songs that would reliably delete them, which means that my player queue keeps growing, and all attempts to rearrange it in proper order are failing, too. This is extremely annoying - there are some songs that I had deleted dozens of times, and still they keep coming back as soon as something else is imported from browser download folder - even though these songs have been long deleted from that browser folder, too. And of course, it means that this player list keeps growing no matter what I do - I'm seriously thinking about using delete app and reinstall as the only way to clear it available to me, even though I'll have to recreate it from scratch after that.
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.
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.
Serious Search Function Issue
by SELLDL on 2019/12/10 03:59
I’m using version 7.0.2 on an iPad air2 running OS 13.2. The search function is critical for me. I search hundreds of documents at a time for key words then copy and past paragraphs containing those key words into a Pages file. Once the search has been performed, if you stay within Documents it will hold the search results. The moment you leave Documents to go to Pages and then return to Documents the search data is gone and the search has to be performed again. Effectively, I can no longer use Documents for searching, ever so unfortunately. There are also multiple other smaller annoying bugs to deal with. My advice, re-release the last version 6...... before version 7.0 and work out the bugs before putting out a product that is not up to the usual Documents high standards.
Lagish Looks
by eChangX on 2019/11/29 06:45
It’s a great app, can’t complain there. Have enjoyed it since the day I started using it but the newest update are making it lag these days. If I open two tabs or switch between tabs or during when it rotates when using the browser is when the lags try to show up. And also, the last update, when I open more than two tab simultaneously, everything messes up. It gets stuck at tab switching and makes everything look funny. The main tab I was trying to view remains big but the other tabs show small at top and bottom like a single page with all the tabs previewed. Do I have to uninstall and reinstall the app? This uninstall and reinstalling apps after a major update is becoming to show more openly and I find that disturbing with this iPhone business these days
The tool that overcomes the many shortcomings of the apple secure eco system
by K0xyK0x on 2020/12/23 06:07
No one can deny how the sandbox approach that apple takes towards IOS security is super effective, and it has its own set backs and problems for power users. Documents is one tool that saves the day.. I am what you call an old school power user. I use plenty of devices . Without Documents ,my iPad would have been collecting dust.. I use it daily on a variety of tasks from exchanging documents to other devices , viewing PDFs , extracting archives etc.. In a nutshell ,it allows me to achieve 95% of my file management needs. The other 5% would only be achieved if apple dropped the sandbox approach and started using a secure central file storage system on the IOS eco system. Thank your Readdle.
Great, but annoying advertisement with update.
by Mr. SilverFox on 2020/11/28 23:24
I use this app for all my PDF files. I have an extensive library of manuals and this is great for searching, annotating, and bookmarking. I would consider it a five-star app if not for the issue below: However, after the last update, every time I open the thumbnail view of my PDFs, an advertisement to pay $90 a year for enhanced functionality appears. If I close the ad, select a page, and select thumbnail view again, the ad comes right back again. This is extremely annoying and reduces the functionality of the app that I’ve already paid for. I do not want the enhanced features and should not have to deal with this aggravation because I elect to not purchase a subscription. If this problem is not corrected I will be switching to another app for using my PDF library.
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.
Excellent File Manager with Extraordinary Functionality
by Jacob  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.
Astonishing!
by E_M_Sc on 2021/02/05 10:09
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews (I know... I should break that habit because it’s important to me that developers know their hard work and time meant something and that there is at least ONE person out in the world faring better because of them!). This app blows my mind every time I use it. I honestly didn’t know my iPad had this much potential and power; having a “Finder app” like Documents (or actually more like a “Finder ++” app!) Mac OS equivalent on my iPad has changed the way I work entirely and I’m so happy about it. A big shout out and thank you to Redaddle. Trust me, if you’re smart you’ll give the free trial a shot and see for yourself. Redaddle should tackle making the native Mac file manager more like this next!
Amazing app with one large flaw
by DesaiM12 on 2020/04/11 14:13
This is my go to app to study on. The multiple tabs/windows that update each other instantly. The ability to have multiple highlighted quickly to access in the favorites toolbar. The only flaw i have found is with a missing tool. Switching from highlighter to non highlighter every time i want to define a word and then having to click the word and then the definition option slows down my workflow. This would definitely be a 5 star app if there was a tool I could add to my favorites bar that would let my click a word and its definition automatically popped up. Other than that this is an amazing app and definitely worth it’s subscription price. Thank you for this app!
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!
Incredible media player with pip
by Wizardhater on 2020/06/02 03:13
I was looking for a movie player that would play videos in a small box (picture in picture) so I could multitask and watch a show. Apple’s app is perfect except you can only play iTunes purchases. I looked all over until I saw on reddit someone mention this app. I works perfectly for what I needed it for plus. The interface is perfect for uploading videos to my iPad. I works perfectly with my Dropbox. A lot of others I try give me no description errors. This is a must have app. Especially for movies and tv shows. I have the Apple app, Plex, and this app on my dock permanently. The name of this app doesn’t do it justice because it’s far more then documents. Amazing job.
Just A Little Issue
by 12vtan on 2019/12/01 14:42
So I’ve been using this app for a little over 2 years now and I really love it. I use it to download music and videos that I could watch and listen to offline. I’ve had problems with it before but it never became too difficult since I would always find a way to fix it but just recently, I’ve tried to download a song I have been listening to and it downloaded like I expected. I looked at the cover and it did not show a picture but it did show a file on it and when I clicked on it, it would tell me that it could not open and I would have to open it from another page. I do not know how to fix it and I would really love a solution since this is my really all time favorite app and it’s currently the only one available for me to use freely how I wanted.
My already music and video files won’t play anymore
by flexi_🖤 on 2020/09/02 21:08
I’ve already done 2 reviews on it , no update to solve it . This problem has been going since december 2019 now and i’ve had the app since 2018 and had no problem. Every time i open the app , the files shows downloading pending when they da already been . why? I can’t listen anymore to them . Only a bit of them will play. I used to listen to all my downloaded music With no problem . I saved them on documents cloud , verified if i had space ( yes , readdle documents take only 1.5gb out of 5gb) and i still don’t see the problem... Tried to save one music file to device, it worked by why not on cloud anymore , again i have a lot of space left! Update: tried their solutions by toggling off and on the cloud but nothing. Still the same problem. Update2: not once of their solutions worked and at the end , they said to record the screen and bla bla . So to redo everything again. Then they stopped reaching. I gave up and some weeks later , all my music files were somehow downloaded so playing again instead of some. However , after downloading 4 more music , the same problem came back . At this point , i might give up as i still have a lot of space and also for some reason , in the music file info , it shows that they have duplicated ( have 200 but it shows 400)...
Can’t say enough good things!!! ❤️💙💚💛🧡
by Fashaezzle on 2020/04/18 23:04
There are literally a hundred reasons to download this app!! It has turned my mobile devices into full fledged computers and allows me flexibility I can’t find with any other app or combination of apps. You can use it as an eReader for books (it’s great!), you can listen to music, you can file your documents, you can listen to audiobooks, you can seamlessly interface with iCloud, you can mark up PDFs—you can do almost ANYTHING with this app!! I downloaded this app for a single use, and I now use it for too many things to count. I LOVE IT!! Readdle, you guys are completely amazing and have transformed my mobile experience. Keep up the amazing innovation and interoperability! 💖
I miss the older version of documents
by austin willis wes on 2020/08/20 02:57
The app is really awesome and i love the fact that u can easily store and download music files on it for when u want to listen to ur music offline. But ever since that update from the 6th version to this 7th one which is the current version right now, I really dont like how the background doesn’t reflect the same colors of the album cover or whatever song I downloaded and now its just plain white all over and i dont appreciate that. I could understand if it was for the dark mode but even the dark mode isnt that dark or 100% black. I really miss the old documents and i hope the app goes back to the way it was. But overall its still a great app.
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.
Need another update
by Syncnester on 2020/03/31 23:46
I love this app for sure but now it’s like most of the people says in here we can’t open the App. In offline mode it says the app needed to verify and so on.... So I open data then I enter the app and then it crashed and disappear, same thing happened when I open with the wifi too. Now I even go to AppStore and tried to open but its open only the front page logo and then disappear but it’s always in the on the go app. Pls fix this, like everyone said this is a really great app. But if u guys provide with the update fix for the app crash, I am hesitating to make future updates. Because this kind of thing happened twice already. However it was a really great app, I wish to use in it great condition. Thanks.
Love it, so helpful
by karl3619... I'm honest on 2020/02/24 20:45
If you’re fine with not being able to share files, I 10/10 recommend this amazing app. It has a browser extension from which you can download files and it will save it to the local storage. It has a nice look and honestly you can argue that the browser is even better than safari or google chrome. You can access your drive files from there, too. So easy to navigate and great for downloading + watching videos, because you can pretty much do anything by tapping and swiping or on your keyboard. So, again, if you’re not looking to share files, definitely use this over any other service! Keep it up!
Two Issues
by WarriorWizard365 on 2020/01/03 03:44
Giving fourstars because I love this app, and there’s two issues. If they both get fixed then I can give 5. So, I’m trying look look in my “downloads folder” which has 30 items, but it’s saying it’s empty, but when I search for them with the bar, there they are. So not the biggest deal, but it is to me. Another issue is with the recent refresh. So, everything looks better, a lot cleaner and I like it, but my old MP3 files still have the old style to them, which is fine, but I know for a fact there’s a new MP3 file look, and it makes my files look bad when the first 50 are one way, but after the update if I try to add another, it looks different. Please fix this. Especially the second one
I am not able to play this song next
by Corey Nova on 2020/09/15 08:40
I’ll cut to the chase, I downloaded this app because I like to listen to music and I’m able to download it and play it on the go. The reason to why I have given it four stars because I am not able to organize the music that I downloaded the way how I want it. There is a specific song that I would like to play next but I’m not able to do so simply because I’m not able to organize it in that order. I will at the very least acknowledge the ability of playing an MP3 audio off-line without any interruptions whatsoever. Perhaps on the next update, the person who has created this application will grant us, users, the ability to place downloadable content in order
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. 😉

bring it back
by Sinai.Daqiqi on 2020/11/25 09:19
document 5 was very like able for what?!!!! i tell you! there was an option that would allow you to access the music library on phone (( apple music)) and from there you were able to share your own music that you synced from iTunes to phone on whatsapp or telegram. unfortunately in documents 6 this ability has been removed!!!! so this app is like any other apps that work as File-manager. i contacted the support team but they didn't understand the point and guided me wrong about how to share music files. anyway i'll be glad to see that option back again.
