Documents by Readdle – Best Free File Manager and Viewer App for iPhone and iPad
Apple will always have haters. But regardless of what negative things they have to say, one thing is undeniable; Apple’s attention to beautiful design and detail has inspired developers to create handsome apps. One developer that has always come to the fore is Readdle.
Known for amazing apps like Calendars 5 and Scanner Pro, Readdle has a new universal app to show off, Documents. Documents by Readdle is a file storage, viewer, and sync app. You can house all your files inside Documents by Readdle, whether they are PDFs, Office docs, spreadsheets, songs, or videos. Even ePubs are supported.
Documents by Readdle is also a lite file annotation app. It lets you mark up documents with highlights, underlines, and notes. With the attractive built in browser, you can save webpages as PDFs and download media files. Create bookmarks and save login credentials too.
Recently, Readdle has added the ability for Documents to talk with and acquire abilities of their other apps. Basically, if you have other Readdle apps on your iPad, Documents will unlock those app’s capabilities within itself. So if you have PDF Expert installed, you will get its superior annotation capabilities in Documents . If you have Scanner Pro installed, you will be able to create PDF’s in Documents. Printer Pro will unlock printing from within the app, and so forth.
Documents also allows you to sync everything with your Dropbox account or other cloud storage services, including iCloud. That way you can have all your files on all your devices. And you won’t even have to think about it as syncing happens automatically.
Documents by Readdle is an amazingly free file viewer and manager for iPad and iPhone. This is due to its eye-candy interface, automatic syncing, feature-rich browser, and ease of use.
