The latest ver. 6.5.2 will now work properly with Locations in the Files app in iOS 11. Rather a long wait but better late than never.

It just gets better and better. BETTER AND BETTER. All Readdle apps are good buys. As Apple gets more and more restrictive this is a useful app to act as a "bridge." For example if one wants to email a tune but an app doesn't have the facility to do this, just open the tune in Documents 5 and email it from there.

There is only one criticism and that is an important one as it crops up so often and that is its NAME “Documents.” There are more than one app called Documents and when using airdrop a lot, as I do, the name "Documents" comes up more than once in the list and I invariably choose the wrong one. It would be better if they changed the name to "documents6" to avoid this confusion; a small but important improvement as there is absolutely no way of telling which documents app it is.

One of the most useful Apps in the store.

I use this App everyday, it is one of those Apps that I found the more I used and explored become more and more useful.

I initially purchased this App to store some of my office documents so I could review and edits files while out off the office. After further use I found I could also zip/unzip files which proved to be very useful as well as storing and playing audio files. The ability to unzip files is a great feature because I was being sent most of my office files archived for obvious reasons.

As well as having access to the files you import into the App you also get access to your podcasts and photos thereby not requiring you to leave the App.

I have a Wishlist I hope the developers will think about.

1. I am starting to get very annoyed with the Audio player. It needs the ability to skip forward and backwards such as 30 seconds and for this to be configurable. I listen to loads of dictation and audio shows and the ability to jump around would be great.

2. Not sure if it can be done but adding my own short cuts on the left menu will be a good feature.

3. When I save a PDF or other doc to Documents it automatically opens the file. Can this be turned off? Other wise could there be an option.

4. Integration with apps like 1Password would help with saving document passwords era.

I’ve been using docs for absolutely ages. I use it for downloading music to transport to iMovie to add in my vlogs and videos. It worked fantastically and docs has quickly become my favourite app ever ! Recommended it to everyone ! However now they’ve decided to stop us downloading music and sent us to a shat app that doesn’t even work! SO DISAPPOINTED! Please fix it! If you’re going to send mass amounts of people to an app for the sake of your reputation ensure the app works! There is no use for this app now! You are losing customers like FLYS! SIMPLY LET US DOWNLOAD OFF SAVE FROM NET AGAin! If this problem gets fixed il come back and give 5 stars because I so desperately want to ! Fix it please! Don’t believe me head to televzr and check the comments. Can’t believe this!!!! Literally worse than the Snapchat update ! Don’t believe this
