Oh god the massive icons

2nd EDIT: I feel like I’ve been a bit harsh. Sorry devs, i know you work hard to make a great product. I just checked, and i first downloaded Documents (and also Scanner Pro) in 2010! That’s how long I’ve been on the Readdle train, and have been a happy customer the whole time. I still hope you give us the option to have small icons again though. :)

EDIT: I appreciate the dev response, but it’s basically “You’ll get used to it”. I don’t use the grid view and I don’t want massive icons on my screen ok any view. I’m pretty sure this goes against Apple’s design guidelines (none of their apps use massive icons). Of course you can make your app how you want, but just in case you need an example that you are the anomaly. Please at least give us the option to resize. I don’t have a phablet-sized screen. ORIGINAL: Did you even do some UX testing, or just decide that you personally liked this better? My eyes are burning. Please follow Apple’s UI and UX guidelines. Or at least give us a “normal size” button so we can choose. Also, reading your reply to another review, I don’t want to see all this information the massive icons allow.

Hello there, thank you for your feedback. I've added your vote to the app wish list, and we'll be sure to let our customers know if it's brought back. We’re always working on improvements to make the app even more useful.


They fixed it (kind of)

So I reviewed this app half a year ago mentioning that the app works great for my use case, but every single time I want to download a file I find it almost impossible to select the file on the first try. The tiny button you have to push to open the share menu requires so much precision to press that it is always an annoyance. While the new redesign did not fix the button itself, it added a pop-up at the bottom of the app when you add a new file which allows you to access the share menu with a much bigger button. Not the fix I was expecting, but totally solved my problem. _______________________________________ Original review: The (...) button on each file is almost impossible to tap, at least on the iPhone 12 Mini. I have to try at least 6 times times every time I want to download a video, meanwhile the video will start up every time I miss the button by a few pixels. I don’t have thick fingers it’s just a really small area the button will accept a tap from. Please make it bigger.

For all the updates they do…

…it seems that both this program and PDF Expert share the same flaw: they will both crash in the background unexpectedly, especially when music or video is playing in the background. I cannot tell you how many times I am doing something in Documents or PDF, minimize the app to go to a different one, come back, and am greeted with the app restarting itself over and over again. It is especially annoying when I am listening to music or a video and the sound goes dead because guess what! The app crashed AGAIN. This app has all the potential in the world, especially for one that’s been around for so long, but what exactly are all these updates you’re pumping out doing if I am still experiencing crashes upon crashes upon crashes besides making the in-app icons needlessly huge with no option to make them as small as they were again? Do better. EDIT: Oh, and by the way? Putting what used to be a FREE FEATURE (MP3 extraction from videos) behind a subscription service paywall? Real classy, guys. It pays for all the super cool updates we get? What’s the point of those updates IF THEY DON’T EVEN WORK? This sounds more like a really sleazy way to force people to sign up since PDF editing tools and VPN weren’t cutting it and if it weren’t for the fact that I still have use for this app, I would kick it to the curb for practices like this.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. Please note that we don't provide an option to extract data and it looks like you're using a third-party service to do that. As for crashing,
please share some more details about your workflow to so that our engineers can look into the issues you've faced. Thank you in advance.
