Multitool of document apps

I have downloaded this app about a month ago, and during this time I have had no issues with it whatsoever. Obviously with more time I may find a bug or two, but not yet. The app itself has many features, not all of which I have needed to use, but cool ones which I was pleasantly surprised to learn about. This app features a built in VPN, although limited in the free version, is still useful as is, it has a browser within the app, along with all of the expected document managing features like cloud access and whatever it may be. There are for sure some features I don’t even know about. I have dropbox and apple’s files, and neither have as many features as this, I mean, theres only so much improvement you can do to a document app so this app is the same as the other plus more. The only thing that wasn’t optimal for me was during the initial launch where you have example files loaded which simply caused confusion on my part.
I’d recommend this app 5/5

Text to speech needs work

A wonderful app overall, but the text to speech functionality doesn’t always work well. (1) Jumping pages: often when I scroll while the text to speech is running, it jumps back or forward a page. So the page that is visible and has the highlight going from word to word is not the page that is being narrated. I have to pause the narration, scroll to the correct position, and hit play again. This is very frustrating and makes this feature cumbersome to use. (2) Highlighting current word: this is great when it works, but sometimes the highlight will freeze while the narration continues. Sometimes pausing and restarting fixes this, sometimes it doesn’t. This frequently happens at the bottom of a page when I scroll so the top of the following page is in the center of the screen. (3) The pause/play forward/back bar. The buttons are very small and there is no way (that I know of) to increase the size. This seems very important for an accessibility feature. Also, I feel that this bar should be movable and not stuck at the bottom of the screen. (4) Sometimes continues on to next page, sometimes doesn’t. When it doesn’t I just scroll to the next page and hit play. Not a huge deal, but the inconsistency is odd.

Liking & using more than expected!

Very nice app to help organize all the files as well as see them...and then do something with them as needed. It is an Efficient app and I use it a lot. But I do wish they would do a better job INTEGRATING their apps to work together much more efficiently, and auto magical...and not need to go searching through the next doc or pic managing app u need. Like the printer app they have should open automatically after u send a web doc or photo to it but you have to hunt for the app...THEN name and save the file or pic to manage the data! That’s very cumbersome. I also wish the printer app work with this app.
I’d love for them to make an app that allows us to manage our photos and screen shots right away as we take the photo or screen capture. I have 1000s of screen shots in a mess even though I try to use photo folders. But they are too small of photos to see to do mass classification. I like this Doc app because u can tag things easily and also see them reasonably well (although I Wish there was a “space less” version that has the images as big as possible so we can see them and peg it with the correct tags when we are doing group classifications.
