The app is perfect but when you start depending on them they surprised you with bad news. Spark was amazing, they messed it up, Printer Pro has the same fate. Calendars 5 was my daily use app of them all. They messed up that one too. Printer Pro! Scanner mini! Did I mentioned PDF Expert? I still using that with Documents, my last two and I'm so afraid to get attached to them I'm already using alternatives.

Killer features, attention to detail
by PureJadeKid on 2022/01/18 16:49
In this case, the PDF reader mode where it reflows the document to be viewable on a small phone screen is a wonderful reading aid. Epic!

How is this free?
by OffJay on 2022/01/17 16:59
I do not know how this is a profitable product for readdle, but it is a great app that allows you to download files with a device that has iOS. Without this application, it is impossible to do so. This app also allows you to buy an iPad with a large hard drive and use it in place of a laptop. Without this app, you would never be able to achieve the same functionality with saving files, finding files, and attaching files in web applications and email.
Too much lagging
by Sahir 01 on 2022/01/16 11:43
I love this app so much but After the latest update its lagging too much when browsing and playing music by default the thumbnail became loading Need to fix it up
Background usage for no reason
by 4m1R---->AmiR on 2022/01/16 08:38
Hi there, after the last update the app is running in the background even my phone’s background app refresh is off and it’s on the low power mode. I closed the app from app switcher but again it was running in the background. Please fix it if there’s any bug or sth like that. Tnx 🙏🏻
Great app, though this feature would be neat
by EeveeGamer on 2022/01/16 07:35
Could you give an option to allow media in the app to play over media viewed from a different media? The metronome app I use can play over any media. Literally a godsend feature; if I have one screen available, I'm still able to practice over episodes of seinfeld.
Great app!
by KEEBUS127 on 2022/01/16 06:35
I originally downloaded this to just store a temporary file, but decided to keep using it for over a year due to how easy it is to use and transfer files, without a single problem
Made in Ukraine
by VersaMax on 2022/01/15 06:02
I’ve had this app for years but I never use it, why? Because Apples’ Files works just as well. Actually, Documents ‘piggybacks’ off of the Files app which comes for free. The two big negatives with Documents is that 1. It’s very expensive and 2. its prone to data loss. Save yourself money and aggravation and stick with the native Files app.
Love it!

Hi there 👋 First of all thank you for such a wonderful app you made for us ita really useful. But the reason i gave 3 stars is that the app have a really big data while I don’t have that much data in it. For example i have just 20 audio’s in my document and they are 1GB , but my document app almost have 6GB in my iPhone storage! Plz fix it and then its going to be the best app EVER! thanks.

Amazing app but, Needs fix one little issue.
by Hush The Dush on 2022/01/06 20:01
The app is extremely helpful and useful. I’m thankful for you. But, I’m facing a serious issue when i play a music. While the screen is off for about 1 minute of playing music or video and then suddenly the issue stops the music or video. To keep the music or video playing, i had to keep the screen on all times to keep the playing music or video. I did update but nothing have changed. I had to format my iPhone. So the issue seems to be gone for a few weeks and then the same issue is back again. If you cloud please do something about that issue.
glitches
by literal darkness on 2022/01/06 08:49
Hi! This is one of my favorite apps. Lately, however, I’ve been having some minor issues with it. To be specific: I have a lot of files that I add to my “favorites” (when the star appears next to the file name). I do that to keep track of which files are important and which aren’t important. At one point, I was checking through the files, and all of my favorites were gone! The files were still there, but they were no longer labeled as favorites. I had to look through all of my files again to see which were the important ones. This has happened multiple times at random. I don’t know how to fix it :(

Great app but…
by fourearkitty on 2022/01/04 22:26
It was a great app when I downloaded it a year ago. Everything was running smoothly and it was my favorite app to import videos and audios but now nothing could load. Once the video or audio is done downloading in youtubemp3, it won’t load all the way. For example, one of the audios that I wanted in my videos said 100% but it wasn’t fully loaded because when I press on it, it’ll say restart loading and delete. It’s annoying so I’m hoping you guys can fix it. Hopefully this makes some sense….
I have a question.

music player problems
by nelsonvs on 2021/12/29 18:07
I still have the same problem of the folders that contain music files, they change by themselves in the music player, I personally use this application as my music player and I have my folders organized with different types of music and when I want to listen to music and I choose one folder, I put a song and the songs are changed by themselves when the cell phone is locked and it is very annoying because I cannot listen to a complete song, please solve that problem with the music player, thank you ...

MP3 file will not play
by Loloiysme on 2021/12/23 22:22
Certain MP3 files just will not play entirely, or I can’t skip to a timestamp in the file and still have it play. I have to play from the very beginning or when I tap the play button, nothing happens. I’ve been using the documents app for over two years now, and it hasn’t let me down until this. I’ve never had this issue before. I have over 1000 mp3 files, if that could be a bug.
Can’t open .webm
by dgcdjhf on 2021/12/22 12:10
Personally I haven’t used it that much but anytime I try to open the file on it it just refuses to load saying it doesn’t recognize that file now the file types that I were loading were pretty obscure .webm as an example what is the point of this app to be able to open those files?
Terrible change
by reviewallie on 2021/12/22 00:31
I’m unable to play the song I want now I try to skip 10 second forward and it skips the entire song. Now the software is even opening the wrong file at times than the one I selected

Music player needs some work visually
by JcBramble on 2021/12/20 21:45
Would like to see the music function work more like a music library complete with album artwork. I don’t like to go into the library and see folders with the artist name. Album artwork to replace the folder icon would make it feel more like a true music player/ library.
App keeps closing itself or crashing audio background
by Ibrown39 on 2021/12/20 09:01

Spit view
by Lixdesic on 2021/12/19 20:42
Very annoying that when I am tying to research something the split view comes up obnoxiously without an option to turn off and no instructions in knowledge base on how to do it. I resort to double clicking home and swiping up. This feature kills the app for me,

No Playlists for Audio Files
by cacofonix1 on 2021/12/19 16:32
Only way to play a specific list of songs is to move them to a folder. Playlists are so elementary. Why cant one store all audio files in 1 folder and pick and choose what to play based on playlist. No way to rename multiple files together like adding/removing prefix/suffix etc
Thank you!
by MokiKekoa on 2021/12/17 16:01
This app is exactly what I was looking for! I needed to make a playlist of Chinese sentences in mp3 format. I have hundreds of files and more yet to add. I’ve tried 2 other apps that can do this but this is the only app that allows me to multi-select a whole folder with 500 files and transfer them seamlessly and fast! With the other apps I would’ve had to transfer them one by one or the transfer of multiple files was incomplete. It is seamless with iOS Files, which is where my mp3 files were.

Buggy playback
by m50027 on 2021/12/13 22:24
This app worked flawlessly up until a couple weeks ago. Now whenever you try to skip around during playback of an audio file, the track doesn’t play anymore- it goes to the next track in the list. This never happened before.
Amazing
by Fart217 on 2021/12/13 01:57
Been using this app for downloading files for about 4 years now! Better than the apple files app.

The best, but not perfect
by Oddball31899 on 2021/12/10 18:30
This app has everything I need to manage all of my storage locations. All it lacks is versatility in compression formats, and the ability to encrypt them. It would also be cool to have built in ssh terminal capabilities like Termius, but that would be a bonus. Would also be nice to be able to hide the VPN and Browser tabs. Regardless, best app out there for file management/access from your phone. Works reliably, and looks nice too.

by 274839227 on 2021/12/02 01:52
It was a good app until a couple of months ago when it wouldn’t let me add a title to the songs downloaded or change the original downloaded title. If the title is changed the song will no longer play. These songs that are downloaded also can not be paused in the middle or skipped because when they are clicked on again, it will then skip to a random song. No matter how many times I press on the song it will not play but I will skip to a random song.

Mediocre music player
by Danny Bastidas on 2021/11/23 01:04
The app is very nice, very clean design and easy to use, however I only ever used it for music and the music player was fine at first, it did its job. However as I used it more, it started to be more and more unreliable, I would play songs in my car and when it went to the next song, it’d play for one second and then just pause. I had to manually play the next song, every time. I eventually got used to it, but then it got even worse somehow. Songs would randomly skip to the next song in the middle of one and if I tried to play it back, it would proceed to skip to the next one at the exact same time. At this point, I had stopped using documents as a music player, and tried it again at the time of this review but not even using it in my car, instead just my phone and with headphones. Somehow, the same problem is occurring. Songs would actually seamlessly play after the other, but the songs still skip in the middle of one, which is purely unusable. All in all, very good file system management app, buggy unreliable music player.
I want this.

Newest version is buggy
by GuyFleegman on 2021/11/21 16:32
Hate it that when I switch apps then return to Documents, it keeps going back to a low (20% or so) brightness and I have to turn it up again, over and over. Finally figured out what the problem is. The app doesn’t have its own brightness setting. It relies on the system setting, which I had set low for bedtime use. Extremely annoying. Also, when I hide the toolbar, it comes back when I switch back to the app. Preferences should be persistent.
podría solucionarse

⛔️ VPN service has bugs ⛔️
by Merida:c on 2021/11/19 07:21
First of all, thank you for this very useful app. Every time I activate free VPN, even though I only search for a few words on Google and I do not have any downloads or watching movies or music online, the capacity of 50 mg is filled in 10 minutes and the VPN is disconnected. however my main internet is not even 2 megabytes used, please fix this bug and if it’s possible increase the capacity of free VPN per day to 100 or 200 megabytes. Thanks 🙏🏻🌸

Great but Serious Stability Issues
by Sonic DX 123 on 2021/11/18 23:16
I’ve been using this all for storing and listening to music for a few years, and it’s truly fantastic. However, I’ve had an unacceptable amount of crashes with this app in the last year or so. It happens nearly every time I use the app. I’ll be listening to music, and it will suddenly crash. I’d really like to see this resolved soon because it’s a major disruption to an otherwise incredible app.

It has been working fully with no bugs for 2 years and I LOVE The download from browser feature because I can download audio and the VPN is so nice built in and the file explorer allows me to quickly create access and move things anywhere. SO helpful! I wish I could give it 100 stars out of 5!!!

by Crystal Bradshaw on 2021/11/16 09:26
I wish I can put documents in whatever order I want. Can you please make that possible? If it’s already possible, then can you tell how I can do it? I hope possible for you to add that feature.

I litterally downloaded this for one thing and it couldn’t do that
by mjfhfudn on 2021/11/15 18:46
I downloaded this expressly to be able to save videos off of Reddit and it was COMPLETELY unable to do so.
Excellent app now more pleasing to the eye
by LantaNana on 2021/11/15 02:44
I have always appreciated the versatility of Documents, but the interface was so unattractive that I seldom used it unless I was forced to. I updated recently and now find the interface colorful and attractive. I think I’ll be using it more often now.
They fixed it (kind of)
by MEGAPIE06 on 2021/09/21 03:20
So I reviewed this app half a year ago mentioning that the app works great for my use case, but every single time I want to download a file I find it almost impossible to select the file on the first try. The tiny button you have to push to open the share menu requires so much precision to press that it is always an annoyance. While the new redesign did not fix the button itself, it added a pop-up at the bottom of the app when you add a new file which allows you to access the share menu with a much bigger button. Not the fix I was expecting, but totally solved my problem. _______________________________________ Original review: The (...) button on each file is almost impossible to tap, at least on the iPhone 12 Mini. I have to try at least 6 times times every time I want to download a video, meanwhile the video will start up every time I miss the button by a few pixels. I don’t have thick fingers it’s just a really small area the button will accept a tap from. Please make it bigger.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
8.0 Docs X Update
by RickAndHisSprkle on 2021/09/14 13:29
Been having issues with my phone ever since it updated this app. Since I exceeded the allotted VPN time it’s been trying to reconnect to it constantly and is seemingly interfering with my ability to connect to cell service and wifi. I couldn’t understand what was going on until finally I went into the app settings and manually disabled the VPN and now everything is working again. Also, I don’t know why you decided to hide a lot the features that previously were on the bottom bar into sub-menus in the app. It was fine before. I liked having the computer connect button accessible. I had to look for 5 minutes just to find it. Now all the video files I send over to edit on my phone have no preview images and the font for the file names all cut off. In making things look all flashy, you took away from the simplicity that made the app easy to use. I’d probably have more issues if I used for more than 5 minutes but I haven’t received an email or text message or been able to connect to websites or refresh my social media feeds in 12 hours since it updated.
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
Mediocre music player
by Danny Bastidas on 2021/11/23 01:04
The app is very nice, very clean design and easy to use, however I only ever used it for music and the music player was fine at first, it did its job. However as I used it more, it started to be more and more unreliable, I would play songs in my car and when it went to the next song, it’d play for one second and then just pause. I had to manually play the next song, every time. I eventually got used to it, but then it got even worse somehow. Songs would randomly skip to the next song in the middle of one and if I tried to play it back, it would proceed to skip to the next one at the exact same time. At this point, I had stopped using documents as a music player, and tried it again at the time of this review but not even using it in my car, instead just my phone and with headphones. Somehow, the same problem is occurring. Songs would actually seamlessly play after the other, but the songs still skip in the middle of one, which is purely unusable. All in all, very good file system management app, buggy unreliable music player.
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!
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.
Excellent file management system
by Holland Daly on 2018/02/07 23:31
As a new iPad user, I became rather frustrated over how locked down the iPad’s file system is, almost to the point where I wanted to take it back for a refund. It’s nearly impossible to move files around or open them up in other apps unless you hook up to iTunes via a desktop. I stumbled across this app by pure accident and it has completely changed the way I use my iPad for the better. I use it as my file system where I organize my files, and can easily open them between apps. I’ve connected my google drive and Dropbox for easy file access across my phone and pc without ever having to deal with iTunes. I’ve even been using it as my photo viewer and MP3 player. Overall this is an essential app that I would highly recommend using rather than subjecting yourself to Apple’s ridiculous file prison system they have in place.
Best App for Documents
by ThordenViking on 2018/09/13 21:21
I had tested a lot of apps and this one was by far the best! It opens really quickly and it’s very responsive and easy to edit. The printer also works really good on it. However it’s not 100% perfect right now. Hopefully my review may change that. When I want to create a new blank document. I have to first click on edit and then tap more and then tap create text icon. That is three steps which is very annoying when I’m creating several new documents a day. There should be a button that you just tap once or A double tap. That would literally saved me a lot of taps per month. But that is my only complaint and nothing is perfect in life. This app has save me so much time and has made it possible for me to get a lot of work done on my phone that I normally have to do on my desktop. Thanks again for creating a great reliable app
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great app... but terrifying upsale pricing
by gsteemso on 2021/10/18 05:42
I've been using this app for years, and can safely expect to enjoy every interaction with it. (NOT a thing I say lightly - I used to suffer a significant anxiety disorder.) However, it seems Documents contains a most dire surprise for the unwary. Today the PDF viewer offered me a free trial of a Reader Mode. As expected, it looked excellent; I fully expect it would be a significant improvement to my reading experience. Nevertheless, prudence requires checking the actual price of a feature before trialling its use, and there I discovered the booby-trap under the seat: The iOS app store describes ten possible in-app purchases, at three price points... about $12-13; $50; and _$90_!!! Even stranger, three of the offered purchases are duplicates referencing a single other app by the same developers; while the remaining seven are duplicates of a single upgrade to something called “Documents Plus”, at - SOMEHOW - two very different price points. Now, I don't really care how awesome Documents Plus is. If only one feature, and a luxury _convenience_ at that, has induced me to even LOOK at the upgrade in the whole time I've used Documents... that is _not_ going to be worth $50 or $90 to me. What are you people even thinking?!
THE Most used app on my iPhone!
by SoloPocono on 2018/05/24 02:30
I use this app for everything from my class materials, keeping important correspondence and storing copies of important pictures and sound files, song lyrics, webpages, business documents-you name it! The ONLY other app I use close to D is Keep-which I use for quick notes and often store a copy in D. Being able to back everything up to Dropbox, Box or iCloud with just a tap or two has been a LIFE(Work)-SAVER! When I get a new iPad every year or so, this is the first app I install and organize. The utility of this app is unmatched and I can’t remember EVER having any glitches! As an older person, taking classes despite my age & severe ADD; I desperately need things to keep me organized, make sure I have doubles & triplets in some cases, and a self-explanatory GUI-Documents provides it ALL AND MORE! THANK YOU!
Amazing but things come to a end
by Yo boo roro on 2018/01/10 02:13
I love this music it download my needs and so on well I don’t know why or what’s the reason but I recently play music that’s allready downloaded I never had a problem.. and now it plays but pauses for some odd reason and I need it play on my playlist in order... and like freezez and .. so I would allways open the app play music download any music that comes out without a problem so I play it and then close it when needed..no this issue am having is it plays but it starts playing 15-20 seconds in the song it it repeats over and over and then stops playing and have to press play and does the same thing over and over again.. I download over 200 songs and I don’t want to delete this amazing app..please fix this issue! And for anyone downloaded it it’s perfect very smooth but for some reason it stops playing and this is the past 2 days
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
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.
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?
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 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.
New update : Lost all downloads, files , videos

I opened the app this morning (on my phone ),after using it the previous night , it began to automatically update to I guess this new version...I went to play music files and video files I stored for months, now none of them play or open. Everything says unable to play file or open file ...I tried to see if I could share them to another file storer on my phone so I could open there but it said it couldn’t read the file to share it . What can be done to open the stored files , videos and music downloads to have them functioning again ? I was literally using this app every day/night . I would appreciate some assistance. Thanks .
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!
My most used app but still confined to limited view options
by misshell444 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.
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.
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.
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)...
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
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.
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! 💖
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.
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.
They in year 3000!!!
by Kehfjdj on 2019/01/25 18:05
I don’t review....ever. They deserve this praise. I originally got this app to download videos and whatnot. Was very wrong, HOWEVER, I still use this app almost every day. You can do so much. It’s the little things you notice along they way that makes it just simpler to do everything through here. There’s ways to download videos btw they require going to separate sites to do it or something hella complicated. Too much work if you ask me. I have my own method for videos and they work flawlessly. I do not share my methods for privacy reasons...if I did, then everyone would do it and use it irresponsibly and create problems. Anyway, this app continues to amaze and surpass my expectations. Totally worth it, if you give it a chance.
Excellent capabilities, one minor request
by Flurr Ball on 2018/09/13 05:20
Handles various file types unlike any other iOS app I have tried. My only complaint is the accessibility of short (~15 sec) jumps. I can do this by bumping left and right on the cover art in the player but that’s it. The forward/backward buttons (on screen) only skip to the previous/next TRACK. Ideally, I would like to have the option to toggle this to previous/next ~15 seconds, like the functionality in some popular audiobook apps. On a related note, I have become accustomed to two and three taps to headphone controls performing the same short (~15 second) jumps forward and backward, respectively, but Documents responds to this (headphone) input by jumping forward and backward an entire TRACK. This is most useful for files with longer tracks, e.g. audiobooks.
Looking for a feature...
by Tall Cracker on 2017/09/26 06:37
This app is awesome, hands down. There’s one thing I can’t figure out, though: I liked this app so much that I decided to give Spark email a try (also by Readdle) which is now my favorite email app ever. But the problem is that Documents 6 exports emails using the standard iOS email app, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to change the export settings to use Spark instead. I know that you can drag and drop items from Documents into Spark if using the split screen, but it should be easier than that. Especially now that Apple totally screwed up the split screen experience with the new iOS update. It would be so cool if the developers could make that Spark email export option happen!
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!
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.
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
Incredible, Been using it for years, but one weird change
by helpyness on 2021/10/27 23:16
I love this app. It’s easy and the best thing when it comes to having files on your phone. Media player works great and so does the Audio player. No complaints. However I must ask why did Readdle remove the option to directly save MP4 files to your photos app. This is such a weird change and a mild inconvenience for something that should have really never changed. Now I have to port it over to VLC and then port it to photos from there? Can we have the option to save videos to camera roll again? Other than that it’s perfect and I thank the developers for years of service.
Downloads have disappeared.
by Zachariah777 on 2020/03/14 21:09
A great and supper efficient app that has a major problem. I was looking through the reviews of this app, and it seems im not the only one who had this problem as well. I downloaded maybe about 60+ mp3 files to the download folder, and when i was in the process of downloading a file, and checked the download folder where I expected it to be, the folder was completely empty. I’m not sure if i am able to recover the files at this point, and if i were to redownload them I don’t want to risk the chance of them disappearing once more. Again, your app is great, and extremely efficient, But please fix this.
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.

Sooner or later Readdle will pull the plug on this app
by A.Kinng on 2022/01/19 01:40
The app is perfect but when you start depending on them they surprised you with bad news. Spark was amazing, they messed it up, Printer Pro has the same fate. Calendars 5 was my daily use app of them all. They messed up that one too. Printer Pro! Scanner mini! Did I mentioned PDF Expert? I still using that with Documents, my last two and I'm so afraid to get attached to them I'm already using alternatives.
Please…. please

Killer features, attention to detail
by PureJadeKid on 2022/01/18 16:49
In this case, the PDF reader mode where it reflows the document to be viewable on a small phone screen is a wonderful reading aid. Epic!

Great program, but after many updates over the years

Search still does not work.
How is this free?
by OffJay on 2022/01/17 16:59
I do not know how this is a profitable product for readdle, but it is a great app that allows you to download files with a device that has iOS. Without this application, it is impossible to do so. This app also allows you to buy an iPad with a large hard drive and use it in place of a laptop. Without this app, you would never be able to achieve the same functionality with saving files, finding files, and attaching files in web applications and email.
Too much lagging
by Sahir 01 on 2022/01/16 11:43
I love this app so much but After the latest update its lagging too much when browsing and playing music by default the thumbnail became loading Need to fix it up
Background usage for no reason
by 4m1R---->AmiR on 2022/01/16 08:38
Hi there, after the last update the app is running in the background even my phone’s background app refresh is off and it’s on the low power mode. I closed the app from app switcher but again it was running in the background. Please fix it if there’s any bug or sth like that. Tnx 🙏🏻
Great app, though this feature would be neat
by EeveeGamer on 2022/01/16 07:35
Could you give an option to allow media in the app to play over media viewed from a different media? The metronome app I use can play over any media. Literally a godsend feature; if I have one screen available, I'm still able to practice over episodes of seinfeld.
Great app!
by KEEBUS127 on 2022/01/16 06:35
I originally downloaded this to just store a temporary file, but decided to keep using it for over a year due to how easy it is to use and transfer files, without a single problem
Made in Ukraine
by VersaMax on 2022/01/15 06:02
I’ve had this app for years but I never use it, why? Because Apples’ Files works just as well. Actually, Documents ‘piggybacks’ off of the Files app which comes for free. The two big negatives with Documents is that 1. It’s very expensive and 2. its prone to data loss. Save yourself money and aggravation and stick with the native Files app.
Love it!

by Dr_Amiri on 2022/01/11 13:04
Hi there 👋 First of all thank you for such a wonderful app you made for us ita really useful. But the reason i gave 3 stars is that the app have a really big data while I don’t have that much data in it. For example i have just 20 audio’s in my document and they are 1GB , but my document app almost have 6GB in my iPhone storage! Plz fix it and then its going to be the best app EVER! thanks.

Amazing app but, Needs fix one little issue.
by Hush The Dush on 2022/01/06 20:01
The app is extremely helpful and useful. I’m thankful for you. But, I’m facing a serious issue when i play a music. While the screen is off for about 1 minute of playing music or video and then suddenly the issue stops the music or video. To keep the music or video playing, i had to keep the screen on all times to keep the playing music or video. I did update but nothing have changed. I had to format my iPhone. So the issue seems to be gone for a few weeks and then the same issue is back again. If you cloud please do something about that issue.
glitches
by literal darkness on 2022/01/06 08:49
Hi! This is one of my favorite apps. Lately, however, I’ve been having some minor issues with it. To be specific: I have a lot of files that I add to my “favorites” (when the star appears next to the file name). I do that to keep track of which files are important and which aren’t important. At one point, I was checking through the files, and all of my favorites were gone! The files were still there, but they were no longer labeled as favorites. I had to look through all of my files again to see which were the important ones. This has happened multiple times at random. I don’t know how to fix it :(

Great app but…
by fourearkitty on 2022/01/04 22:26
It was a great app when I downloaded it a year ago. Everything was running smoothly and it was my favorite app to import videos and audios but now nothing could load. Once the video or audio is done downloading in youtubemp3, it won’t load all the way. For example, one of the audios that I wanted in my videos said 100% but it wasn’t fully loaded because when I press on it, it’ll say restart loading and delete. It’s annoying so I’m hoping you guys can fix it. Hopefully this makes some sense….
I have a question.

music player problems
by nelsonvs on 2021/12/29 18:07
I still have the same problem of the folders that contain music files, they change by themselves in the music player, I personally use this application as my music player and I have my folders organized with different types of music and when I want to listen to music and I choose one folder, I put a song and the songs are changed by themselves when the cell phone is locked and it is very annoying because I cannot listen to a complete song, please solve that problem with the music player, thank you ...

MP3 file will not play
by Loloiysme on 2021/12/23 22:22
Certain MP3 files just will not play entirely, or I can’t skip to a timestamp in the file and still have it play. I have to play from the very beginning or when I tap the play button, nothing happens. I’ve been using the documents app for over two years now, and it hasn’t let me down until this. I’ve never had this issue before. I have over 1000 mp3 files, if that could be a bug.
Can’t open .webm
by dgcdjhf on 2021/12/22 12:10
Personally I haven’t used it that much but anytime I try to open the file on it it just refuses to load saying it doesn’t recognize that file now the file types that I were loading were pretty obscure .webm as an example what is the point of this app to be able to open those files?
Terrible change
by reviewallie on 2021/12/22 00:31

Files will not download
by Codie Depollo on 2021/12/21 21:14
I have waited hours for a file to download, and guess what? It never downloaded! This app needs fixing right away
Love the App, just needs one more thing
by WarriorWizard365 on 2021/12/21 06:35
I really wish there was a shuffle button for videos in the same fashion that there is for mp3 files. That would be really nice

Music player needs some work visually
by JcBramble on 2021/12/20 21:45
Would like to see the music function work more like a music library complete with album artwork. I don’t like to go into the library and see folders with the artist name. Album artwork to replace the folder icon would make it feel more like a true music player/ library.

Spit view
by Lixdesic on 2021/12/19 20:42
Very annoying that when I am tying to research something the split view comes up obnoxiously without an option to turn off and no instructions in knowledge base on how to do it. I resort to double clicking home and swiping up. This feature kills the app for me,

No Playlists for Audio Files
by cacofonix1 on 2021/12/19 16:32
Only way to play a specific list of songs is to move them to a folder. Playlists are so elementary. Why cant one store all audio files in 1 folder and pick and choose what to play based on playlist. No way to rename multiple files together like adding/removing prefix/suffix etc
Thank you!
by MokiKekoa on 2021/12/17 16:01
This app is exactly what I was looking for! I needed to make a playlist of Chinese sentences in mp3 format. I have hundreds of files and more yet to add. I’ve tried 2 other apps that can do this but this is the only app that allows me to multi-select a whole folder with 500 files and transfer them seamlessly and fast! With the other apps I would’ve had to transfer them one by one or the transfer of multiple files was incomplete. It is seamless with iOS Files, which is where my mp3 files were.

Buggy playback
by m50027 on 2021/12/13 22:24
This app worked flawlessly up until a couple weeks ago. Now whenever you try to skip around during playback of an audio file, the track doesn’t play anymore- it goes to the next track in the list. This never happened before.
Amazing

The best, but not perfect
by Oddball31899 on 2021/12/10 18:30
This app has everything I need to manage all of my storage locations. All it lacks is versatility in compression formats, and the ability to encrypt them. It would also be cool to have built in ssh terminal capabilities like Termius, but that would be a bonus. Would also be nice to be able to hide the VPN and Browser tabs. Regardless, best app out there for file management/access from your phone. Works reliably, and looks nice too.

by 274839227 on 2021/12/02 01:52
It was a good app until a couple of months ago when it wouldn’t let me add a title to the songs downloaded or change the original downloaded title. If the title is changed the song will no longer play. These songs that are downloaded also can not be paused in the middle or skipped because when they are clicked on again, it will then skip to a random song. No matter how many times I press on the song it will not play but I will skip to a random song.

Mediocre music player
by Danny Bastidas on 2021/11/23 01:04
The app is very nice, very clean design and easy to use, however I only ever used it for music and the music player was fine at first, it did its job. However as I used it more, it started to be more and more unreliable, I would play songs in my car and when it went to the next song, it’d play for one second and then just pause. I had to manually play the next song, every time. I eventually got used to it, but then it got even worse somehow. Songs would randomly skip to the next song in the middle of one and if I tried to play it back, it would proceed to skip to the next one at the exact same time. At this point, I had stopped using documents as a music player, and tried it again at the time of this review but not even using it in my car, instead just my phone and with headphones. Somehow, the same problem is occurring. Songs would actually seamlessly play after the other, but the songs still skip in the middle of one, which is purely unusable. All in all, very good file system management app, buggy unreliable music player.

Newest version is buggy
by GuyFleegman on 2021/11/21 16:32
Hate it that when I switch apps then return to Documents, it keeps going back to a low (20% or so) brightness and I have to turn it up again, over and over. Finally figured out what the problem is. The app doesn’t have its own brightness setting. It relies on the system setting, which I had set low for bedtime use. Extremely annoying. Also, when I hide the toolbar, it comes back when I switch back to the app. Preferences should be persistent.

⛔️ VPN service has bugs ⛔️
by Merida:c on 2021/11/19 07:21
First of all, thank you for this very useful app. Every time I activate free VPN, even though I only search for a few words on Google and I do not have any downloads or watching movies or music online, the capacity of 50 mg is filled in 10 minutes and the VPN is disconnected. however my main internet is not even 2 megabytes used, please fix this bug and if it’s possible increase the capacity of free VPN per day to 100 or 200 megabytes. Thanks 🙏🏻🌸

I’ve been using this all for storing and listening to music for a few years, and it’s truly fantastic. However, I’ve had an unacceptable amount of crashes with this app in the last year or so. It happens nearly every time I use the app. I’ll be listening to music, and it will suddenly crash. I’d really like to see this resolved soon because it’s a major disruption to an otherwise incredible app.

It has been working fully with no bugs for 2 years and I LOVE The download from browser feature because I can download audio and the VPN is so nice built in and the file explorer allows me to quickly create access and move things anywhere. SO helpful! I wish I could give it 100 stars out of 5!!!

I have always appreciated the versatility of Documents, but the interface was so unattractive that I seldom used it unless I was forced to. I updated recently and now find the interface colorful and attractive. I think I’ll be using it more often now.
They fixed it (kind of)
by MEGAPIE06 on 2021/09/21 03:20
So I reviewed this app half a year ago mentioning that the app works great for my use case, but every single time I want to download a file I find it almost impossible to select the file on the first try. The tiny button you have to push to open the share menu requires so much precision to press that it is always an annoyance. While the new redesign did not fix the button itself, it added a pop-up at the bottom of the app when you add a new file which allows you to access the share menu with a much bigger button. Not the fix I was expecting, but totally solved my problem. _______________________________________ Original review: The (...) button on each file is almost impossible to tap, at least on the iPhone 12 Mini. I have to try at least 6 times times every time I want to download a video, meanwhile the video will start up every time I miss the button by a few pixels. I don’t have thick fingers it’s just a really small area the button will accept a tap from. Please make it bigger.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
8.0 Docs X Update
by RickAndHisSprkle on 2021/09/14 13:29
Been having issues with my phone ever since it updated this app. Since I exceeded the allotted VPN time it’s been trying to reconnect to it constantly and is seemingly interfering with my ability to connect to cell service and wifi. I couldn’t understand what was going on until finally I went into the app settings and manually disabled the VPN and now everything is working again. Also, I don’t know why you decided to hide a lot the features that previously were on the bottom bar into sub-menus in the app. It was fine before. I liked having the computer connect button accessible. I had to look for 5 minutes just to find it. Now all the video files I send over to edit on my phone have no preview images and the font for the file names all cut off. In making things look all flashy, you took away from the simplicity that made the app easy to use. I’d probably have more issues if I used for more than 5 minutes but I haven’t received an email or text message or been able to connect to websites or refresh my social media feeds in 12 hours since it updated.
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
Mediocre music player
by Danny Bastidas on 2021/11/23 01:04
The app is very nice, very clean design and easy to use, however I only ever used it for music and the music player was fine at first, it did its job. However as I used it more, it started to be more and more unreliable, I would play songs in my car and when it went to the next song, it’d play for one second and then just pause. I had to manually play the next song, every time. I eventually got used to it, but then it got even worse somehow. Songs would randomly skip to the next song in the middle of one and if I tried to play it back, it would proceed to skip to the next one at the exact same time. At this point, I had stopped using documents as a music player, and tried it again at the time of this review but not even using it in my car, instead just my phone and with headphones. Somehow, the same problem is occurring. Songs would actually seamlessly play after the other, but the songs still skip in the middle of one, which is purely unusable. All in all, very good file system management app, buggy unreliable music player.
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!
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.
Excellent file management system
by Holland Daly on 2018/02/07 23:31
As a new iPad user, I became rather frustrated over how locked down the iPad’s file system is, almost to the point where I wanted to take it back for a refund. It’s nearly impossible to move files around or open them up in other apps unless you hook up to iTunes via a desktop. I stumbled across this app by pure accident and it has completely changed the way I use my iPad for the better. I use it as my file system where I organize my files, and can easily open them between apps. I’ve connected my google drive and Dropbox for easy file access across my phone and pc without ever having to deal with iTunes. I’ve even been using it as my photo viewer and MP3 player. Overall this is an essential app that I would highly recommend using rather than subjecting yourself to Apple’s ridiculous file prison system they have in place.
Best App for Documents
by ThordenViking on 2018/09/13 21:21
I had tested a lot of apps and this one was by far the best! It opens really quickly and it’s very responsive and easy to edit. The printer also works really good on it. However it’s not 100% perfect right now. Hopefully my review may change that. When I want to create a new blank document. I have to first click on edit and then tap more and then tap create text icon. That is three steps which is very annoying when I’m creating several new documents a day. There should be a button that you just tap once or A double tap. That would literally saved me a lot of taps per month. But that is my only complaint and nothing is perfect in life. This app has save me so much time and has made it possible for me to get a lot of work done on my phone that I normally have to do on my desktop. Thanks again for creating a great reliable app
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great app... but terrifying upsale pricing
by gsteemso on 2021/10/18 05:42
I've been using this app for years, and can safely expect to enjoy every interaction with it. (NOT a thing I say lightly - I used to suffer a significant anxiety disorder.) However, it seems Documents contains a most dire surprise for the unwary. Today the PDF viewer offered me a free trial of a Reader Mode. As expected, it looked excellent; I fully expect it would be a significant improvement to my reading experience. Nevertheless, prudence requires checking the actual price of a feature before trialling its use, and there I discovered the booby-trap under the seat: The iOS app store describes ten possible in-app purchases, at three price points... about $12-13; $50; and _$90_!!! Even stranger, three of the offered purchases are duplicates referencing a single other app by the same developers; while the remaining seven are duplicates of a single upgrade to something called “Documents Plus”, at - SOMEHOW - two very different price points. Now, I don't really care how awesome Documents Plus is. If only one feature, and a luxury _convenience_ at that, has induced me to even LOOK at the upgrade in the whole time I've used Documents... that is _not_ going to be worth $50 or $90 to me. What are you people even thinking?!
THE Most used app on my iPhone!
by SoloPocono on 2018/05/24 02:30
I use this app for everything from my class materials, keeping important correspondence and storing copies of important pictures and sound files, song lyrics, webpages, business documents-you name it! The ONLY other app I use close to D is Keep-which I use for quick notes and often store a copy in D. Being able to back everything up to Dropbox, Box or iCloud with just a tap or two has been a LIFE(Work)-SAVER! When I get a new iPad every year or so, this is the first app I install and organize. The utility of this app is unmatched and I can’t remember EVER having any glitches! As an older person, taking classes despite my age & severe ADD; I desperately need things to keep me organized, make sure I have doubles & triplets in some cases, and a self-explanatory GUI-Documents provides it ALL AND MORE! THANK YOU!
Amazing but things come to a end
by Yo boo roro on 2018/01/10 02:13
I love this music it download my needs and so on well I don’t know why or what’s the reason but I recently play music that’s allready downloaded I never had a problem.. and now it plays but pauses for some odd reason and I need it play on my playlist in order... and like freezez and .. so I would allways open the app play music download any music that comes out without a problem so I play it and then close it when needed..no this issue am having is it plays but it starts playing 15-20 seconds in the song it it repeats over and over and then stops playing and have to press play and does the same thing over and over again.. I download over 200 songs and I don’t want to delete this amazing app..please fix this issue! And for anyone downloaded it it’s perfect very smooth but for some reason it stops playing and this is the past 2 days
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
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.
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?
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 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.
New update : Lost all downloads, files , videos
by Nyxphoenix on 2021/09/10 14:40
I opened the app this morning (on my phone ),after using it the previous night , it began to automatically update to I guess this new version...I went to play music files and video files I stored for months, now none of them play or open. Everything says unable to play file or open file ...I tried to see if I could share them to another file storer on my phone so I could open there but it said it couldn’t read the file to share it . What can be done to open the stored files , videos and music downloads to have them functioning again ? I was literally using this app every day/night . I would appreciate some assistance. Thanks .
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!
My most used app but still confined to limited view options
by misshell444 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.
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.
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.
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)...
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
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.
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! 💖
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.
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.
They in year 3000!!!
by Kehfjdj on 2019/01/25 18:05
I don’t review....ever. They deserve this praise. I originally got this app to download videos and whatnot. Was very wrong, HOWEVER, I still use this app almost every day. You can do so much. It’s the little things you notice along they way that makes it just simpler to do everything through here. There’s ways to download videos btw they require going to separate sites to do it or something hella complicated. Too much work if you ask me. I have my own method for videos and they work flawlessly. I do not share my methods for privacy reasons...if I did, then everyone would do it and use it irresponsibly and create problems. Anyway, this app continues to amaze and surpass my expectations. Totally worth it, if you give it a chance.
Excellent capabilities, one minor request
by Flurr Ball on 2018/09/13 05:20
Handles various file types unlike any other iOS app I have tried. My only complaint is the accessibility of short (~15 sec) jumps. I can do this by bumping left and right on the cover art in the player but that’s it. The forward/backward buttons (on screen) only skip to the previous/next TRACK. Ideally, I would like to have the option to toggle this to previous/next ~15 seconds, like the functionality in some popular audiobook apps. On a related note, I have become accustomed to two and three taps to headphone controls performing the same short (~15 second) jumps forward and backward, respectively, but Documents responds to this (headphone) input by jumping forward and backward an entire TRACK. This is most useful for files with longer tracks, e.g. audiobooks.
Looking for a feature...
by Tall Cracker on 2017/09/26 06:37
This app is awesome, hands down. There’s one thing I can’t figure out, though: I liked this app so much that I decided to give Spark email a try (also by Readdle) which is now my favorite email app ever. But the problem is that Documents 6 exports emails using the standard iOS email app, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to change the export settings to use Spark instead. I know that you can drag and drop items from Documents into Spark if using the split screen, but it should be easier than that. Especially now that Apple totally screwed up the split screen experience with the new iOS update. It would be so cool if the developers could make that Spark email export option happen!
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!
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.
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
Incredible, Been using it for years, but one weird change
by helpyness on 2021/10/27 23:16
I love this app. It’s easy and the best thing when it comes to having files on your phone. Media player works great and so does the Audio player. No complaints. However I must ask why did Readdle remove the option to directly save MP4 files to your photos app. This is such a weird change and a mild inconvenience for something that should have really never changed. Now I have to port it over to VLC and then port it to photos from there? Can we have the option to save videos to camera roll again? Other than that it’s perfect and I thank the developers for years of service.
Downloads have disappeared.
by Zachariah777 on 2020/03/14 21:09
A great and supper efficient app that has a major problem. I was looking through the reviews of this app, and it seems im not the only one who had this problem as well. I downloaded maybe about 60+ mp3 files to the download folder, and when i was in the process of downloading a file, and checked the download folder where I expected it to be, the folder was completely empty. I’m not sure if i am able to recover the files at this point, and if i were to redownload them I don’t want to risk the chance of them disappearing once more. Again, your app is great, and extremely efficient, But please fix this.
Just A Little Issue

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.
