Documents 8

At last I can search for files again. When I first started with Documents 5, I could search for files no problem but as my files increased in number the search facility stopped working. 'Scratching my head' brought no answers and hence Documents limped along but now in Documents 7, I see the search facility is functioning again. HOORAY! I do wish Readdle would fix the issue with another app called Documents as it causes confusion as to which of the two Documents apps to select and I like both of them. Just a rider for the developers: I have never installed a beta version of Documents, EVER. I have contacted you on more than one occasion regarding the search facility but failed to get a response that worked but let's not get into recriminations. You are an honest developer and Documents 7 will now search again. Thank you for the update and all the other improvements.

Developer Response ,

Hi, I'm glad to hear the search issue doesn't bother you any more. I'm also sorry your attempt to contact us didn't go well. Probably, there was some glitch on the mail server - we recommend trying contacting us using another email address. In case you need anything - don't hesitate to get in touch with us, we're always happy to help.

The best available but has some issues to fix

it is difficult to rate this app without mixed feelings. It’s the best file manager available and it links seamlessly with other Readdle apps. But with each new version more problems seem to appear. Readdle also started charging subscriptions for certain features over recent years, I absolutely disagree with this practice. I use Documents for everything; every day I create/manage and print lots of PDF documents and that’s where the problem lies... Some time ago Documents stopped detecting or printing via apple AirPrint, instead using its own Printer Pro app, which unfortunately has not been updated for some time and can’t even print double sided. I’ve mentioned this problem to Readdle support on a few occasions but nothing at all has been done despite them adding extra features they don’t to fix this massive bug. Now the latest update, even more bugs. It no longer shows tiles/miniature images of the files in file manager. This app has become very buggy.

EDIT: As of todays update v8.1.4 the thumbnail display bug seems to fixed but the AirPrint issue is still there and needs fixing.

Excellent app functionally, but...

I find the app is excellent to use, and in fact I have purchased one of the bundles that includes PDF expert, Scanner PRO and Printer PRO. I haven't used the printer app, but the scanner app is exceptionally good, and the PDF seems good also (not had much chance to use it yet)

My biggest gripe with the suite is it feels like they are always trying to sell you something. The documents app has a folder in the side bar for add-ons which I can’t find a way to remove. It is just a menu for additional apps you can purchase. I've paid for the documents app, paid for an additional bundle, I have what I need, I don’t want an advert for the rest constantly on show in the folder tree. Also, some of the other paid-for apps have additional in-app purchases to unlock the full feature set. All of this would be fine in a free app, it is what you expect, but I expect better from an app I have already paid for.
