Ratings and Reviews
This app was worthwhile while it lasted. It is frustrating to be expected to pay full price for an update. I understand the work that goes into a major update and do not expect it to be free, but some recognition of those of us who have purchased in the past would sure be nice. Maybe $1 off or something, as other serious apps have done upon a major upgrade.
My Most Useful App for over 6 years!
Seeing other reviews - yeah I haven't bought v2 yet either because this does everything I need every day.
To get it installed on older iOS, just buy it in iTunes on PC/Mac first and then it will offer to download the "latest compatible version" to your device. (this trick works for many apps btw)
A great text editor and file manager for older hardware!
My original review:
I got iFiles in Jan 2010 and have used it daily ever since on many different iDevices. It is being constantly updated and Tom is very quick to respond to any inquiries. And you can still get the iOS5 version in the App Store, which works great if you still have some old equipment to support. I look at many different filing apps as they come out and always come back to this one for ease if use and doing what I need. Storing & sorting files, moving files about between sites and apps, web browsing, viewing images, and easy text editing are what I constantly rely on it to do.
This app is great! I’ve used it for several years now, and refer to files- text & audio,- daily. I’ve tried several other apps in this genre, but always come back to this one. Easy to use, orderly, and crosses devices from iCloud with no problem. I really appreciate it, and am delighted that it’s still available. Hope that doesn’t change!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
