Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded this app originally on the recommendation of a friend to more easily place files in compatible folders for use in some other apps. However, I have actually received most of my use out of this app from its easy interface with google docs as well as the e-reader built into the Documents app. Specifically the text reflow tool has made reading books on an iPhone SE screen a great experience. The video player built into the app is also very well done, especially because you can use this app to stream videos stored on my network’s server (server file access privileges required to perform, unrelated to app usage). The only annoyance I’ve found so far is when using the iOS read out loud feature to read text in files. When the navigation buttons are showing (return to files button on top and forward/backward page on bottom) the reader reads your entire directory’s file names. The same thing happens when the navigation buttons are hidden (by tapping the text once), but after it finishes reading that page it is on. However, this text reflow tool coupled with the iOS read out loud feature has saved me a bunch of time on my commute reading various books and textbooks, especially for education purposes!
Constantly Freezes Up - Resolved
I found that I could zip my folders and save them to my laptop. Then I deleted the documents app, re-downloaded & re-installed the app and restored my folders. Working fine now.
Restoring the folders from the zip file also restored all the sub-folders & files. I did need to create multiple zip files, my original zip of the entire database was probably too large. It zipped up but I received an error message when I attempted to restore it.
App used to work great but starting a couple of months ago it started locking up on me when doing various things like selecting multiple files to move or delete, converting jpeg files to pdf, deleting files while viewing them, using the scanner, etc. Requires a reboot of my iphone to correct the problem but it is not long before it freezes up again. I would try deleting the app & reloading it but I have hundreds of folders and I do not wish to recreate all of them manually.
It’s a great app but lately...
I’ve been using this app for a little over a year now and there was never really any problems. I use Documents to download all of my music since I can’t use the common app for music on my phone. It’s been working fine until now. It would work fine but after a couple of songs, one song would come up and I would listen to it for around 1 minute, then suddenly it stops and skips over to the next song. It’s not just one specific song but it happens to other songs too. One time it skipped two songs right in the middle. I’ve tried replying the same song and refreshing the page but it still does the same thing. I even went and updated it to the recent version but the issue still appears. It’s really frustrating. Now I use the common app but I can only listen to one artist a time, so when I want to listen to another artist song, I have to stop what I’m doing and search for the artist. Documents is the only app I can use for my music that gives me everything I want without making it complicated. Overall, it’s a good app to use with no fuss.
