Works great but I need some help
by Jaketheb888 on 2021/05/12 18:44
The app works awesome, but I’m a neat freak and I need the files and folders in a certain order that I like. I can’t find a feature to organize them in an order I want to, can I get some help?
Favorites keep getting removed
by djrnfjfj on 2021/05/12 16:17
I have hundreds if not thousands of files on this app and I have a few hundreds that I’ve saved as favorites however they keep being removed, the first time this happened no biggie after all I didn’t have much in my favorite folder second time t was an annoyance now the third time I’m just pushed off because I had over a thousand files saved to favorites. See that this is sorted out ASAP pls
Good but…
by Maedeh akb on 2021/05/12 11:14
This app is awesome but the only problem is that it makes a lot cache; so I must uninstall and reinstall to clean Other in my phone storage
Good, but need one thing to be added
by Tahir Bayramov on 2021/05/12 00:17
Wish we could mark and move multiple items from one folder to another at the one move, rather that moving each single file separately.
Better than Apple files
by rustlingleaves on 2021/05/11 13:33
This app is one of the most useful apps in all iOS. I use it to manage files, music, and videos on my iPhone. Since I have 1 foot in iOS and 1 foot in android (which lets you control your own dang files), I was pretty excited back when Apple announced their files app. But it is a pretty big let down. Documents by Readle has been around much longer, is much more user friendly and has more features. Basically, this app allows me to stay sane on iOS.
Good but how do I do this

Dark mode for web browsing

Please would you consider the need for a dark mode while browsing in the app. Thank you very much.
Horrible app
by jrock 5 on 2021/05/09 13:24
By far the worst pdf editor I have ever seen. Literally just tried to add one sentence on the a pdf page and the system seems broken. Click on the part I wanted to add into and it clicks on another part of the page and started moving paragraphs around and auto wrapping them. Not user friendly at all and the pdf feels as if it’s still in beta stage nowhere near completion it should not even be available on the app honestly all it did was mess up my paper now I have to copy and paste most of it to another
Review
by Randon person ooOoOoOo on 2021/05/08 01:50
This thing is awesome thats all i gotta say, straight from my computer i can upload something and it will pop up on my phone. I have never seen anything like this and their is no ads or nothing. The best part is that not only is it insanely great but its free. Ive never written a review on an app before but this thing just amazed me so much that i had to give it five stars.

The best
by gibinat on 2021/05/06 18:20
The most useful app you can have. The developer contacted me to thank my review, but it’s true, this app keeps one of the best of all!!!
Why no intel MAC Love
by Mobile Virgin on 2021/05/05 20:14
I really like this app and all of the apps that Readdle has but I have a 2020 iMac and am not looking to upgrade to the M1 anytime soon. Why do the intel iMacs not have a version of this app? I mean it was here first? I hate having to go through PDF Expert and pretend it’s Documents on my MAC. I even tried to Rena me it but that didn’t work

UI Is Too Slow (Newer iPhones)
by The Authentic Reviewer on 2021/05/04 07:34
From XS Max to the latest iPhones. “Documents” Web Browser is atrociously slow, you tap on one tab and the seconds delay is terrible. No Update seems to fix this issue ever…
Favorite app, needs a playlist manager
by Reaboyyyy on 2021/05/04 04:17
Currently you have duplicate audio files and rename them if you want to have an organized playlist that plays automatically and never resets.
Downloaded but I was being hacked
by mhr0517 on 2021/04/28 23:04
I downloaded the app and while downloading a video a message popped up saying I was being hacked. Deleted immediately!!!
Really great just needs one thing
by A guy named Nate on 2021/04/28 20:14
I love this app. There is one thing thatbit needs which would make it a 5 star app. The ability to upload transparent images.

Great app use it everyday in my business but having to delete after they started using VPN want work will not open on my new iPad money wasted just going to start using a different app it’s a shamed liked using the app.
It skips my music
by vj if chj on 2021/04/26 20:25
I recently upgraded iPhones and my 6plus never had any issues with the app, but when I got my 12 pro max all of a sudden I’ll be listening to my music with my phone off and when a song is over instead of just going to the next track it skips like 2 then 7 songs and it only does this when my phone is off and locked.....please fix this it’s sooo annoying.
Works but infested with security breach pop up ads
by John M Kiley Jr on 2021/04/26 14:40
It does what it’s supposed to do when you can actually use it. Most of the time you get pop ups of your device being hacked. Once pop up comes up you can’t do anything other than click the OK banner. So I find myself closing down the program and reopening more than I can actually use it half the time.
using it for music!

i really like this app because its easy to download music to it! i've been using this for months and am happy that its not playing ads randomly

VPN!????
by sadpatheticme on 2021/04/25 10:40
No thanks. I don’t need a VPN for a document manager. At least let me remove it from the app interface.
Great App - NOT!
by EXTRA-ECCLESIAM-NULLA-SALUS on 2021/04/25 01:07
This is a review UPDATE. This USED to be 5 stars. In reality I rarely don’t use, create, or edit PDFs. A few times a year I do and when I bring up my favorite app for PDFs - I now find out I need a subscription just to delete one page! Lousy customer dedication. Fail.
Willing to pay if price lowered
by terryleeeh on 2021/04/23 06:31
I am enjoying the functions and stability of this app, but 50 dollars a year subscription is way too expensive. I am willing to pay up to one time fee of 80 dollars, but recurring subscription fees are preventing me from paying for the extra functions. I like the app, and I hope the team comes up with a more affordable plan or pricing system.

I just wanted to express my thanks for this app. I use the awesome spark email app too. Like you all have efficiency and ease all in mind with these productivity apps.

This app is great at downloads
by Crafting fun on 2021/04/17 07:57
Safari and chrome make it near impossible to download videos of any kind, and google drive takes a long time to download more than one thing at a time, but with this app, i've downloaded easily over 100 videos and images from the internet and my drive all in one go. 5/5 better than apple's default file system
Opened webpage closed unexpectedly
by Dikiunin on 2021/04/16 12:58
I cannot find the webpages opened before, they closed without any signal, and there isn’t any browse history which suppose to be stored by the app, I cannot find any icon directing to history. But not every time I open the app the bug happens, this happens occasionally, which bothers me very much.
Fixed a bug I reported
by :-Drs on 2021/04/15 14:13
I have been using Documents for years, and have found it to be a very useful tool with improvements all along the way. One update introduced a bug, could no longer view a synced Website, as a Website. It lost stylesheet, image, and hyperlink capabilities. This is a Website only synced on my Computer, iPhone, and iPad. Great way to have a development site with constant updates with me all the time. I reported the bug and they responded, and fixed it. Way to go team, you obviously care about your customers. 5 stars!

by Jackslippers on 2021/04/14 18:28
The app gave me errors on files that I’ve placed into the document app. My videos and pics are not showing up. What happened? I’ve read other issues on here. Did I lose my files on this app? I can’t open up any of my files.

No Option to Unsubscribe-They Charge & Charge
by CSS3733 on 2021/04/13 22:22
Seems like a good scam if you can get it! Promise one thing and deliver an overbloated unusable document manager that can’f even cleanly manage documents or interchange formats, then of course offer is as an SaaS and cleverly have NO OPTION to CANCEL within the CrApp Store formatting. Your app is useless please never charge me again. I tried politely to no response. Hopefully this gets your attention.
vpn
by the18182 on 2021/04/13 17:18
while i find this app very helpful as a file manager, the vpn turns itself on automatically if i dont use all 50mb after i turn it off. this makes it really annoying to be able to use this vpn. you might as well not have included the off button for the vpn if it turns itself back on

Hacked
by rumblebumble101 on 2021/04/10 17:44
Overall, I think this is a really good app for downloading stuff for free. I use it for editing and it’s great. The only problem I have with it is that my phone keeps getting “hacked”. I’m downloading something and it says: YOUR IPHONE IS BEING HACKED. TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION! I don’t know what to do about it so I keep having to delete the app, then I turn my phone off completely for a while.

Force closes randomly when playing music in the background 😒
by vshan10 on 2021/04/07 15:02
Since the last update, when playing music from the app in the background, the app will cut off the music playing or randomly close on it’s own. I can’t seem to figure out why it’s doing this all of a sudden since I brought my iPhone 12 Pro??? Please fix
Hmmm... Something’s fishy🤔

by unbiased reviews 27 on 2021/04/06 14:14
Document is a great power for file manager this is not about this is actually a real person it’s a great file manager it was the best one and it’s still probably is the best one on the App Store but when they updated the app they messed up the web browser now if you’re watching YouTube and you want to download a YouTube video you had to scroll up a little bit and this is really annoying if you like me to power download YouTube videos so this is not used to be the best site for YouTube video download it because you can add a widget you can control your playlist of songs and YouTube videos but now they have messed it all up will you like if your power is downloading it says I have really good Wi-Fi as soon as one is done it takes like one minute for one to finish so I can just go onto the next one I really hope you guys can fix the bottle you can open the next tab so I can Open the links and copy and paste them this is only a minor hiccup I think you guys can fix it but on the next update please take in my mouth with you because you because it really doesn’t need to be fixed so I hope you guys hear my love you are you understand I’m coming from because I love this app I really do I was paying for your PDF editor I thought paying for it because of this one flaw but I was paying for your unlimited version and start paying for it I’ll stop paying for if you guys fix this again but I’m probably not gonna use this app anymore I’m probably going to switch to an app called tap browser and see you guys fix this but I’ll be back in a couple of months to see if you guys fix this issue I hope you guys fix this issue also probably will never come back to the app so if you are looking for a YouTube video downloader this is not the app for that anymore used to be a really good app for it used to be the best app for it because I didn’t have any ads but this is not the app for that I actually recommend an app called tap browser or you can try looking for another farm manager that manages your files and you can still download YouTube videos but if you’re using it for both it’s only good at one so maybe you should try looking for something else because this is no longer the best anymore hopefully you guys can fix that bye

It’s three taps away, in a place that you can’t reach with one hand, and when you change your grip to access it from the to if the screen, it appears in a sheet at the bottom of the screen. Really bad UX.

by -Yin1 on 2021/03/23 17:32
my friend introduced this app to me because they said you could download videos with it. this is like the best app for downloading videos it’s super simple and easy. after the recent update it kept saying that the videos were broken and it wouldn’t play or even let me delete. but i emailed their customer service thing and got a reply really fast saying that i need to restart my phone. i thought that wouldn’t work but after i restarted it the videos actually worked. anyways overall a really good app for downloading videos and photos!
Everything you’d ever want
by Tar-Anarion on 2021/03/23 07:41

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Perfect File Management App
by Square Emperor on 2021/03/05 16:01
This is one of the rare app reviews I will actually take the time to write. Documents by Readdle is a file management app that iPhone lacked for as far as I can remember, with a convenient browser for downloads, a pdf reader, music and video player, and other file management capabilities. Files is child’s play in comparison. Documents is especially great for its convenient browser, which allows you to download content straight into the app, whereas with the Files app you have to make awkward downloads in Safari and switch to the comparatively crude Files app to access them. Documents has provided the integrated media access abilities that Apple itself failed to for so long that even now while Apple is catching up, Documents remains a clearly superior app. Looking to download & watch videos quickly and conveniently? Documents has got you covered Want to archive a webpage for safe keeping or viewing offline? Documents has your back Looking for a good way to organize your mp3 files and make playlists? Documents is here for you Want an app to both download & read pdfs with? What are you waiting for? Readdle could not be more generous in making this app free—I would pay good money for it if it weren’t Enjoy the integration, ease of use, and functionality that only Readdle’s Documents can provide.
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.
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
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.
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 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.
Excellent capabilities, one minor request

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.
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.
Pretty straightforward, simple but great application.
by Freakin Yatch on 2018/10/15 16:11
I listen to music, alot… Almost every day, and the main problem I have with streaming media is that I hate ads. This app not only helped that problem, it also allowed me to download whatever I wanted to. Another great asset of this app is that if you downloaded music you can go offline and still listen to music. Minimal problems such as not having a button to make a folder is the only thing I have an issue with, other than that everything else has a pretty solid interface If I would grade this more accurately this would be a 4.8 stars. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Works great but I need some help
by Jaketheb888 on 2021/05/12 18:44
The app works awesome, but I’m a neat freak and I need the files and folders in a certain order that I like. I can’t find a feature to organize them in an order I want to, can I get some help?
Favorites keep getting removed
by djrnfjfj on 2021/05/12 16:17
I have hundreds if not thousands of files on this app and I have a few hundreds that I’ve saved as favorites however they keep being removed, the first time this happened no biggie after all I didn’t have much in my favorite folder second time t was an annoyance now the third time I’m just pushed off because I had over a thousand files saved to favorites. See that this is sorted out ASAP pls
Good but…
by Maedeh akb on 2021/05/12 11:14
This app is awesome but the only problem is that it makes a lot cache; so I must uninstall and reinstall to clean Other in my phone storage
Good, but need one thing to be added
by Tahir Bayramov on 2021/05/12 00:17
Wish we could mark and move multiple items from one folder to another at the one move, rather that moving each single file separately.
Better than Apple files
by rustlingleaves on 2021/05/11 13:33
This app is one of the most useful apps in all iOS. I use it to manage files, music, and videos on my iPhone. Since I have 1 foot in iOS and 1 foot in android (which lets you control your own dang files), I was pretty excited back when Apple announced their files app. But it is a pretty big let down. Documents by Readle has been around much longer, is much more user friendly and has more features. Basically, this app allows me to stay sane on iOS.
Good but how do I do this

Horrible app
by jrock 5 on 2021/05/09 13:24
By far the worst pdf editor I have ever seen. Literally just tried to add one sentence on the a pdf page and the system seems broken. Click on the part I wanted to add into and it clicks on another part of the page and started moving paragraphs around and auto wrapping them. Not user friendly at all and the pdf feels as if it’s still in beta stage nowhere near completion it should not even be available on the app honestly all it did was mess up my paper now I have to copy and paste most of it to another

This thing is awesome thats all i gotta say, straight from my computer i can upload something and it will pop up on my phone. I have never seen anything like this and their is no ads or nothing. The best part is that not only is it insanely great but its free. Ive never written a review on an app before but this thing just amazed me so much that i had to give it five stars.

Why no intel MAC Love
by Mobile Virgin on 2021/05/05 20:14
I really like this app and all of the apps that Readdle has but I have a 2020 iMac and am not looking to upgrade to the M1 anytime soon. Why do the intel iMacs not have a version of this app? I mean it was here first? I hate having to go through PDF Expert and pretend it’s Documents on my MAC. I even tried to Rena me it but that didn’t work

Favorite app, needs a playlist manager

Really great just needs one thing

It skips my music
by vj if chj on 2021/04/26 20:25
I recently upgraded iPhones and my 6plus never had any issues with the app, but when I got my 12 pro max all of a sudden I’ll be listening to my music with my phone off and when a song is over instead of just going to the next track it skips like 2 then 7 songs and it only does this when my phone is off and locked.....please fix this it’s sooo annoying.
Works but infested with security breach pop up ads
by John M Kiley Jr on 2021/04/26 14:40
It does what it’s supposed to do when you can actually use it. Most of the time you get pop ups of your device being hacked. Once pop up comes up you can’t do anything other than click the OK banner. So I find myself closing down the program and reopening more than I can actually use it half the time.
using it for music!

Great App - NOT!
by EXTRA-ECCLESIAM-NULLA-SALUS on 2021/04/25 01:07
This is a review UPDATE. This USED to be 5 stars. In reality I rarely don’t use, create, or edit PDFs. A few times a year I do and when I bring up my favorite app for PDFs - I now find out I need a subscription just to delete one page! Lousy customer dedication. Fail.
Willing to pay if price lowered
by terryleeeh on 2021/04/23 06:31
I am enjoying the functions and stability of this app, but 50 dollars a year subscription is way too expensive. I am willing to pay up to one time fee of 80 dollars, but recurring subscription fees are preventing me from paying for the extra functions. I like the app, and I hope the team comes up with a more affordable plan or pricing system.

This app is great at downloads
by Crafting fun on 2021/04/17 07:57
Safari and chrome make it near impossible to download videos of any kind, and google drive takes a long time to download more than one thing at a time, but with this app, i've downloaded easily over 100 videos and images from the internet and my drive all in one go. 5/5 better than apple's default file system
Opened webpage closed unexpectedly
by Dikiunin on 2021/04/16 12:58
I cannot find the webpages opened before, they closed without any signal, and there isn’t any browse history which suppose to be stored by the app, I cannot find any icon directing to history. But not every time I open the app the bug happens, this happens occasionally, which bothers me very much.
Fixed a bug I reported
by :-Drs on 2021/04/15 14:13
I have been using Documents for years, and have found it to be a very useful tool with improvements all along the way. One update introduced a bug, could no longer view a synced Website, as a Website. It lost stylesheet, image, and hyperlink capabilities. This is a Website only synced on my Computer, iPhone, and iPad. Great way to have a development site with constant updates with me all the time. I reported the bug and they responded, and fixed it. Way to go team, you obviously care about your customers. 5 stars!

Seems like a good scam if you can get it! Promise one thing and deliver an overbloated unusable document manager that can’f even cleanly manage documents or interchange formats, then of course offer is as an SaaS and cleverly have NO OPTION to CANCEL within the CrApp Store formatting. Your app is useless please never charge me again. I tried politely to no response. Hopefully this gets your attention.
vpn
by the18182 on 2021/04/13 17:18
while i find this app very helpful as a file manager, the vpn turns itself on automatically if i dont use all 50mb after i turn it off. this makes it really annoying to be able to use this vpn. you might as well not have included the off button for the vpn if it turns itself back on

Hacked
by rumblebumble101 on 2021/04/10 17:44
Overall, I think this is a really good app for downloading stuff for free. I use it for editing and it’s great. The only problem I have with it is that my phone keeps getting “hacked”. I’m downloading something and it says: YOUR IPHONE IS BEING HACKED. TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION! I don’t know what to do about it so I keep having to delete the app, then I turn my phone off completely for a while.

Force closes randomly when playing music in the background 😒
by vshan10 on 2021/04/07 15:02
Since the last update, when playing music from the app in the background, the app will cut off the music playing or randomly close on it’s own. I can’t seem to figure out why it’s doing this all of a sudden since I brought my iPhone 12 Pro??? Please fix
Hmmm... Something’s fishy🤔

Document is a great power for file manager this is not about this is actually a real person it’s a great file manager it was the best one and it’s still probably is the best one on the App Store but when they updated the app they messed up the web browser now if you’re watching YouTube and you want to download a YouTube video you had to scroll up a little bit and this is really annoying if you like me to power download YouTube videos so this is not used to be the best site for YouTube video download it because you can add a widget you can control your playlist of songs and YouTube videos but now they have messed it all up will you like if your power is downloading it says I have really good Wi-Fi as soon as one is done it takes like one minute for one to finish so I can just go onto the next one I really hope you guys can fix the bottle you can open the next tab so I can Open the links and copy and paste them this is only a minor hiccup I think you guys can fix it but on the next update please take in my mouth with you because you because it really doesn’t need to be fixed so I hope you guys hear my love you are you understand I’m coming from because I love this app I really do I was paying for your PDF editor I thought paying for it because of this one flaw but I was paying for your unlimited version and start paying for it I’ll stop paying for if you guys fix this again but I’m probably not gonna use this app anymore I’m probably going to switch to an app called tap browser and see you guys fix this but I’ll be back in a couple of months to see if you guys fix this issue I hope you guys fix this issue also probably will never come back to the app so if you are looking for a YouTube video downloader this is not the app for that anymore used to be a really good app for it used to be the best app for it because I didn’t have any ads but this is not the app for that I actually recommend an app called tap browser or you can try looking for another farm manager that manages your files and you can still download YouTube videos but if you’re using it for both it’s only good at one so maybe you should try looking for something else because this is no longer the best anymore hopefully you guys can fix that bye

It’s three taps away, in a place that you can’t reach with one hand, and when you change your grip to access it from the to if the screen, it appears in a sheet at the bottom of the screen. Really bad UX.

my friend introduced this app to me because they said you could download videos with it. this is like the best app for downloading videos it’s super simple and easy. after the recent update it kept saying that the videos were broken and it wouldn’t play or even let me delete. but i emailed their customer service thing and got a reply really fast saying that i need to restart my phone. i thought that wouldn’t work but after i restarted it the videos actually worked. anyways overall a really good app for downloading videos and photos!
Everything you’d ever want

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Perfect File Management App
by Square Emperor on 2021/03/05 16:01
This is one of the rare app reviews I will actually take the time to write. Documents by Readdle is a file management app that iPhone lacked for as far as I can remember, with a convenient browser for downloads, a pdf reader, music and video player, and other file management capabilities. Files is child’s play in comparison. Documents is especially great for its convenient browser, which allows you to download content straight into the app, whereas with the Files app you have to make awkward downloads in Safari and switch to the comparatively crude Files app to access them. Documents has provided the integrated media access abilities that Apple itself failed to for so long that even now while Apple is catching up, Documents remains a clearly superior app. Looking to download & watch videos quickly and conveniently? Documents has got you covered Want to archive a webpage for safe keeping or viewing offline? Documents has your back Looking for a good way to organize your mp3 files and make playlists? Documents is here for you Want an app to both download & read pdfs with? What are you waiting for? Readdle could not be more generous in making this app free—I would pay good money for it if it weren’t Enjoy the integration, ease of use, and functionality that only Readdle’s Documents can provide.
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.

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.
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
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Pretty straightforward, simple but great application.
by Freakin Yatch on 2018/10/15 16:11
I listen to music, alot… Almost every day, and the main problem I have with streaming media is that I hate ads. This app not only helped that problem, it also allowed me to download whatever I wanted to. Another great asset of this app is that if you downloaded music you can go offline and still listen to music. Minimal problems such as not having a button to make a folder is the only thing I have an issue with, other than that everything else has a pretty solid interface If I would grade this more accurately this would be a 4.8 stars. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
