This is God send App for iPad

This is by far the closest experience to “Finder in Mac” and Windows Explorer. It is way better than “Files” from Apple. I did not realize the power of this app until I was frusrated with “Files” in iOS11. It allows us to create folders and also has 2-way syncing with Cloud services. The best part is, it has built in viewer for PDF, iWork, Movies, .rar, .zip, .Music and almost all kind of File formats. So unlike “Files(in iOS11)” we do not have to rely on 3rd party apps for each file format. I wish I realised the power of this app much before iOS11. One thing it lacks is, drag & drop of documents across cloud services(which is lacking in Apple’s own “Files” app as well). Thank you Readle for making such as awesome app.

The problem with downloading in this app

This is a really good app but why haven’t you implemented a pause button for downloads YET and the whole background running feature for the app? I have seen many reviews talking about this exact same thing left ignored presumable because of it was a 5 star review. I would like to keep the downloads running in the background when I leave but ,for some reason, it’s not there. And then the even more absurd thing is there isn’t a pause button for the download?

I told myself that it wouldn’t be a big issue because I thought downloads would pause automatically after net blanks out or something but nope. If the net blanks out then you GOT to start from the start. It’s incredibly frustating when you wait the WHOLE day just staying on your app because there is no pause button feature or background running feature. My net blanked out for ten second and my day was ruined afterwards . Pls fix this

I really like your app BUT!

This app is a necessity for IPhone, well at least for me. It’s such a great app but, after the previous updates I wasn’t able to download files after my screen turned off or if I just left the app running in background and did something else. Furthermore even if the file was downloaded (which I did by keeping my phone’s screen turned on and not leaving the app!) it would not play, says that the file is not supported even though I’ve downloaded files from the same site many times before, using your app only. Please fix this problem as soon as possible.
