Best app

I have using this app for a long time and this is one of the best app for files and many more. The new update is very good, fast and have some new features. I like use this app even more in future.
Also I have a request for developers, that can you provide a pdf translator option. There are many files which I wanted, but they are in other languages which I can’t understand. There is a option that we can copy the page of a pdf and translate it in google translate app, but it will take a lot more time to translate the pdf which have more than 100 pages.
So, I am requesting you to add a pdf translation option into this.
Thank you.

An app known for its awesomeness

This is definitely the best app for iOS platform .It helps it’s users to get an “all in 1” app which is widely demanded by ios users. It works like a music player, a video player, a file manager, a gallery for pictures and also as a pdf viewer. Different tabs also could be opened in the pdf viewer of documents app . And recently I came to know that we can also add subtitles for mp4 files by renaming the .mp4 extension as .avi extension. Even in its recent update they have incorporated the two finger gesture for brightness and seeking feature. So I am looking forward for the developers to incorporate the volume control feature also as two finger gesture!! 😊👍👍

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.
