Great tools

I downloaded this app originally on the recommendation of a friend to more easily place files in compatible folders for use in some other apps. However, I have actually received most of my use out of this app from its easy interface with google docs as well as the e-reader built into the Documents app. Specifically the text reflow tool has made reading books on an iPhone SE screen a great experience. The video player built into the app is also very well done, especially because you can use this app to stream videos stored on my network’s server (server file access privileges required to perform, unrelated to app usage). The only annoyance I’ve found so far is when using the iOS read out loud feature to read text in files. When the navigation buttons are showing (return to files button on top and forward/backward page on bottom) the reader reads your entire directory’s file names. The same thing happens when the navigation buttons are hidden (by tapping the text once), but after it finishes reading that page it is on. However, this text reflow tool coupled with the iOS read out loud feature has saved me a bunch of time on my commute reading various books and textbooks, especially for education purposes!

Can’t open in this latest update (7.0.2)

Honestly Documents by Readdle was the best of the best in AppStore and also my most favorite app for many reason. And i loved the newest Document 7 with plus button (7.0.1 i think) when I updated last 1 and half week ago. By far at this update I was still satisfied even with the changes in some areas. But last night I did the usual “update all” for my apps via AppStore along with the latest current version of Documents by Readdle (7.0.2) by the way my iOS version is (13.2.2). And then this morning when I opened the Documents (7.0.2) I couldn’t open it. I tried to open the app after clear my Ram, I tried to open the app after I restarted my iPhone XR, I tries to open after power off my phone and then I tried to open it again. However if doesn’t work at all so I leave it alone for a while and last few minutes ago when i tried open the app again and there was a pop up message and it says AppStore needs to verify the app to open the documents app, so connect to internet and open it again. So I did exactly like pop up message says but j couldn’t open it. Now while I’m about to write a review and I checked the latest reviews and I read that they couldn’t it or crashed like crazy i saw those reviews too. So pls fix these ASAP because there were a lot of data in download folder I haven’t transfer to iTunes files yet. So I couldn’t upload to my computer too. Please fix this please.

Love it, but problem of late

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.
