No waiting for cloud syncing, no cables, no complex interfaces on your device.

Just pick a file, tap and watch it download.

Once your file is downloaded, tap share to see a list of all the apps which can open it.
One more tap and your file will be sent to your chosen app.

Open books with iBooks.
Open movies with VLC or VLC Streamer.
Open text documents in Notes.

Works perfect

Mainly used to load video lectures onto my iPad Pro. 100x easier than loading them through iTunes, especially to VLC.

Ok but freezes a lot

App is convenient but found it freezes like 1/5 of the time and no way to reset it. It freezes while fetching and even restarting or deleting the downloads don't do anything. Only way to fix it, delete the app and reinstall.

This app works great. It's definitely worth the small asking price.
