Access and organize your files no matter where they’re located — on your device, in the cloud, on an external drive or file server— with Files. The Recents view displays the files you’ve been working on lately in high-resolution thumbnails. Use the powerful Browse view to navigate folders, organize your files with tags, move files between folders, and search. Files also makes it easy to access iCloud Drive and third-party cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Box, and OneDrive.
• Press the Files icon in the Dock or Home screen to quickly open a file from anywhere
• Connect an external drive or SD card to your device to access the files
• Connect to a file server at work or a home PC using SMB from Files
• Use tags to organize files stored with different cloud providers and across different apps.
• Pin your favorite folders in Browse view for quick access to the ones you use most.
• Give people access to any file stored in iCloud Drive by sharing a link from the Files app
• Drag and drop to select files and organize them into folders
Ratings and Reviews
I expect more from Files Audio player from the makers of the iPod.
I mostly use Files for reviewing audio files and I frequently need to take notes about the content that specifies the time. I hate how the audio player only shows you the amount of time the song has played and how much time is remaining when you touch or scroll the waveform. It is hard to touch without accidentally moving the time, so it can be painful to use. Time information should always be shown or there should be a configuration option to allow showing it always. I wish you could filter a directory so it showed just files with specific tags. I also wish you could configure it to automatically play the next song in the directory when it finishes playing a song. I previously complained that moving multiple files at once was not possible, and am glad to see that you can easily select and move multiple files now so my 2 star review has been upgraded to a 3 star.

Missing features and performance
I’d love to stick to the default file manager over some third party app, but in its current state its extremely limited.
On performance, it would be good to have a syncing indicator and a way to manually sync files - especially for third party storage like google drive. File previews are touch and go, sometimes they work, and sometimes they don’t or they take forever to load - even on good internet.
Features seem lacking as well, especially for power users. I’d like a similar experience to finder on Mac. Being able to see file extensions, hidden files, etc would be nice too. File management feels pretty clunky, but I suspect that’s a side effect of being on iOS rather than the files app itself, but it would be helpful if it were a bit more intuitive and snappy.
