Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using this app for years however, for a paid app with a paid desktop software (iMazing) one would expect it to have more frequent updates and improvements. Unfortunately not much has changed since it’s inception.
For the developers, could you please consider giving this ageing app some much needed love and attention.
Does the job, sort of.
I downloaded FileApp ( File Manager ) because Apple iOS lacks support for the OpenDocument Formats and whilst this application does technically work, the experience is not great... For example, I have found that OpenDocument Spreadsheets (“.ods”) display off-center, and OpenDocument Text (“.odt”) files lack support for most of the formatting.
Sadly, these issues are probably not going to be addressed anytime soon - at the time of writing, the last update / upgrade was at least seven months ago!
Taking all this into consideration - that is, its design and compatibility flaws, plus its lack of updates / upgrades - FileApp ( File Manager ) is of very little use in the Real World... It is one of those things that looks great on paper, and then disappointingly fails in practice.
Welcome to Apple
This is a piece of software that rightfully belongs with the operating system for the iPad. It is bizarre that Apple, and most of the other brainwashed Apple fanatics out there believe that the iPad is viable without this software. Yet, for some reason this is part of the aftermarket for the iPad.
As far as it goes this is an adequate bit of software. Mercifully it coordinates with the e-mail apps to allow local storage and viewing of documents, but is quite buggy. The reader crashes regularly, and on one occasion managed to reboot the iPad (an achievement in itself). The free version is bereft of file (re)naming, an essential feature, so is worth the additional couple of dollars for the full version.
Another downside is that the file storage does not appear to be accessible using other apps. Another confusing Apple architecture decision I am led to believe. Sigh. One day the market will catch up.
