Great app with a few limitations

Used for years as the place to save pdf docs created on my iMac or directly saved from internet browsing on the iPad. I do wish I could sort saved “printouts” by a combinations of factors or create folders to organize. Only time it has failed me was with the transition to iOS 13 where it locked up and I couldn’t close it. I was forced to delete and reinstall losing all stored documents in the process. Otherwise, a great iOS and MacOS application.

Good App But...

App is good, but on an iPhone 8+ running
IOS version 11.1.2, when you try to rename a printout, the virtual keyboard will not go away.

Normally you can tap outside the virtual keyboard to close it, but for some reason it does not work.

I have used this for years. Something happened though and it seems I can no longer print to ACT. This was how I kept paperless prints on my Iphone. Not sure if something changed - I sure do miss it!
