File App for iOS, a very useful App to manage your files

File App for iOS, a very use App to manage your files

How many times have you fidgeted with a file you wanted urgently on your iPhone or iPad but couldn't access it due to lack of a good file manager.  Only Instagram allows you access your photos in the phone or in the cloud as and when required.  But the same can't be said of other files like PDF or mp3 etc.  That's where the File App comes in.  This App is a very useful file manager for your iOS and is priced at $0.99(Rs.55.00)

The file management on your iPhone or iPad is very poor except for a few type of files.  JPEGs for one are managed well by native photo App as well as Instagram.  But if you quickly want to access a PDF document from your Mac, iOS fails badly.  You have to save it with Photostream or use Dropbox.

File App is very good at managing files.  Once you have installed the App, you can start importing the files using the + icon in the left hand corner at the top.  Files from your  Dropbox, Google Drive, Box can be accessed instantly and download to the phone with just a tap.

Once all of your files are in the app, the viewing experience is very functional but not particularly original. Files can be grouped together in various folders simply by long pressing on a thumbnail and dragging it to the appropriate location. It’s the same gesture used to create icon folders on the iOS home screen.

The JPEGs load with a black background, although if you tap the screen it’s possible to see the full set of images queued in the gallery.  Music files are played using the App's audio player,  Viewing PDF files is very easy on the App.

The App is little bad on two counts, it has limited file sharing ability and it is not free.  Too bad that a good App like this one will fall prey to bad strategic decision on part of the publisher.  

However it has its own uses.  Download it here from Apple Store.
