Customer Reviews

    by Noxbc

    Documents is the best app I've ever used for working with PDF docs. Handy outlines, bookmarks, highlites and whole app interface is great and useful. Add Dropbox sync and downloader — isn't it great? Live long and prosper!

  • Love it!

    by  10oclockbuddy

    One place for all my stuff. Can't beat it!

  • Great app for my documents

    by PAPAVAN

    I have been using Documents for about three months and find it to be an excellent tool for storing documents, creating a PDF file of web page image, sharing files between my iPad and iPhone over a wi-fi network, zipping files, emailing documents. I have recommended it to everyone in our iPad Shared Interest Group.

  • Great once I figured out what it is

    by Money Badger

    Documents is a document manager storage application. It can pull documents from a lot of clouds service but doesn't really synchronize.

  • Excellent Dic organizer and reader

    by Belinda Crichlow

    I use this more than I use ibooks. This is my reader for pdfs because it allows me to make notes and in most cases highlight, underline, define, etc. It connects to online storage of which my fav is google drive. It does not render epubs efficiently. I got it mainly to read pdfs I created. I am quite pleased with the results.

  • Good app

    by Bacchus67


  • Almost perfect

    by aeeroO

    Very light, useful, works like a charm on 5s, 4 stars only, because it shows old ios6-style keyboard(fix that and ill give u 5)

  • Great app!!!

    by pwiggle

    This is a great app for those who use Dropbox as you can set up multiple Dropbox accounts in this one app!!

  • Better than the rest

    by HomeGrown landscapes


  • Best app

    by Romeo-i

    This app is perfect...

  • Best file manager available

    by jmchambers

    I've tested nearly all of them. This is the keeper.

  • Keeper!

    by Pyrsart

    Useful. Nice features. Well-thought-out app. This link to my Dropbox and iCloud is all that I need to store and organize my docs and downloads.

  • Must have!!!

    by Zhigiroff

    This application must be installed on each iPad!!!

  • Perfect for going paperless

    by Lavanjava

    I am attempting to go paperless in my life, and this app is just what I needed! I bought a Fujitsu Scansnap (fabulous, worth every penny), to scan all papers. This app allows me to organize all the files and easily search for files, as well as upload to Dropbox and/or iCloud to keep in the cloud forever. I would give the app a five star, but am having some issues with filing and organizing photos. Could be me, though...

  • Thumbs up!

    by alfrncki

    One of the most useful apps I have ever had. All the features that I needed are all here. Totally a must-have. Cheers!

  • great app

    by Diana_yuan

  • Most Versatile app

    by Seegru

    To me, this is the most versatile app I have ever seen on ios. I read books, watch videos, manage my files and do so many other tasks so easily. I love it and recommend it 100% to everyone. I bet you wont regret.

  • Great but add background music play

    by TomasHalienka

  • Able to replace Goodreader

    by Brfesuen

    by The Dukke

    This app allows my iPad mini to function like a conventional computer where you save, edit and access files.

  • Buena herramienta

    by Antonioaran

    Me ha ayudado mucho en mis labores.

  • Thumbs up!!

    by Hoddiah

    I like this app. It is very easy to use and allows for grouping documents. I like the fact that I can save a file in docx format which is great when emailing documents. No problems, it does what it says and that's what you want from any app.

  • It's need to update keyboard

    by Fazswagger

    It is a very useful app but need some ios7 update.

  • The best

    by ces331

  • Documents

  • Going paperless

    by zcbeach

    This app is the most useful I have found yet to help me on my goal of needing to carry nothing but my iPad. No more back problems from all that paper and all those textbooks. All digital. Documents is the app. Connects to all the cloud apps I use, stores files for use off-line, can open many different files types. Highly recommended.

  • Great app

    by Sethspill

    This app is priceless! I haven't been using it long but so far just the fact that I can use the app and go to my schools website, download and save my teachers power points so I can study them at any time without any internet hassle is incredible. Highly recommend!

  • Organizer made easy

    by Sherwood5030

    This App made filing everything simple, have been using for weeks with no issues. Having one place for documents is Great!

  • Very useful

    by Poothicote

    This is a very good app. It helps me to convert all my stuff and save it in my iPad. C George

  • Useful...

    by Mark T from Charleston

    I store many docs and it's great to be able to divide my docs by APP instead of by sub-folder and then drilling down! Try it.

  • Simple& convenient

    by Kj974513


  • Great app

    by Magicelbow

    This app is great if you accumulate lots of random documents from random places. iBooks doesn't guarantee to save these things if you need to transfer data to a new device. This will sync via iCloud so your stuff is available on multiple devices, and saved for sure.

  • Best

    Can not live without

    I like having all my documents/PDF's in one place and easy to find amd this app does that.

  • Nice app

    by Heyjude2222

    The browser works well on my ipad. I also like the ability to manage my downloaded files, creating folders and sub-folders as needed. Also like the ability to open files in other apps.

  • Almost perfect except SMB not working

    by Clpua

    Almost perfect tool. The only outstanding issue is SMB connection does not work. If SMB works, then will give the 5th star

  • 支持一下。五星好评,感谢开发者。

    by lin zhiming


  • One of the best

    by bawl7

    It does everything it says it does and it's well designed and smooth. 5 stars.

  • Very useful

    by Bluegladiolas

    This app is very useful to keep all your documents in one place. I love the cloud feature and also that I can access google docs as well. It was a little difficult to figure out at first though.

  • Lagging when opening large file

    by Jeancois

    Good file management compared to other apps but the rendering of large PDF files have been lagging have caused my ipad air to freeze mostly every time when I try to open large PDF files. Still searching for the best PDF reader that can render large file with out much lag so I can use it to read my medical text books.

  • Good app

    by Nabil1973

    Good App

  • Cool reader (file manager)

    by Coolly.

    Easy to use , very helpful for studings , i m satisfied )

  • One of the best

    by Jas & Judah

    Very Useful for review and maintaining integrity of doc. Other than using another app to edit the actual document... Or if you have 30 plus documents with dozen or so folders it becomes difficult to move a recent doc to a folder that is not in current display.

  • Just about perfect

    by McQueenSD

    I set up an scp account on my NAS and I browse all my docs using this app, works perfectly! The only thing missing would be samba support, but that's hard to find so no stars off.

  • Solid & Intuitive

    by luryqioruyoqi3yu

    Good Job!

  • Very useful!

    by Sarasota38

    I am currently using this app on an Ipad and it has definitely kept me very organize. I have recently started with school and this app allows me to store PDFs and word documents into specific folders of my choice, it also allows me to do subcategory folders and best of all I can take them on the go without the need of having to carry a laptop. I think it's worth it.

  • Great document management App

    by ReadsTooLittle

    Great interface, easy file upload/download from Linux and Windows, reads all the docs I need it to and then some; I use this for videos now! Works so much better for organizing than iTunes. Perfect!

  • iOS 7

    Documents is one of the best productivity apps ever. Thanks for making it compatible with iOS 7. But, it would be great if it had the iOS 7 look and feel. Hopefully waiting for an update. Thanks.

  • Great app

    by R. Fisher

    I use it every day for work. I recently discovered that it can also save webpages in pdf format, so it replaced another app I have been using for this purpose. I would be ready to pay for this app in exchange for additional productivity features such as editing a word document.

  • Zak

    Great app. Opens all types of documents from all types of sources. It's been a lifesaver for retrieving work documents. I also use it for storing .pdfs from the web to read later when internet isn't available.

    Documents helps me a lot in PDF files....certain word documents and it's integration is sublime! Overall it's a must app for working people!!!
