The latest ver. 6.5.2 will now work properly with Locations in the Files app in iOS 11. Rather a long wait but better late than never.

It just gets better and better. BETTER AND BETTER. All Readdle apps are good buys. As Apple gets more and more restrictive this is a useful app to act as a "bridge." For example if one wants to email a tune but an app doesn't have the facility to do this, just open the tune in Documents 5 and email it from there.

There is only one criticism and that is an important one as it crops up so often and that is its NAME “Documents.” There are more than one app called Documents and when using airdrop a lot, as I do, the name "Documents" comes up more than once in the list and I invariably choose the wrong one. It would be better if they changed the name to "documents6" to avoid this confusion; a small but important improvement as there is absolutely no way of telling which documents app it is.

One of the most useful Apps in the store.

I use this App everyday, it is one of those Apps that I found the more I used and explored become more and more useful.

I initially purchased this App to store some of my office documents so I could review and edits files while out off the office. After further use I found I could also zip/unzip files which proved to be very useful as well as storing and playing audio files. The ability to unzip files is a great feature because I was being sent most of my office files archived for obvious reasons.

As well as having access to the files you import into the App you also get access to your podcasts and photos thereby not requiring you to leave the App.

I have a Wishlist I hope the developers will think about.

1. I am starting to get very annoyed with the Audio player. It needs the ability to skip forward and backwards such as 30 seconds and for this to be configurable. I listen to loads of dictation and audio shows and the ability to jump around would be great.

2. Not sure if it can be done but adding my own short cuts on the left menu will be a good feature.

3. When I save a PDF or other doc to Documents it automatically opens the file. Can this be turned off? Other wise could there be an option.

4. Integration with apps like 1Password would help with saving document passwords era.

Excellent app functionally, but...

I find the app is excellent to use, and in fact I have purchased one of the bundles that includes PDF expert, Scanner PRO and Printer PRO. I haven't used the printer app, but the scanner app is exceptionally good, and the PDF seems good also (not had much chance to use it yet)

My biggest gripe with the suite is it feels like they are always trying to sell you something. The documents app has a folder in the side bar for add-ons which I can’t find a way to remove. It is just a menu for additional apps you can purchase. I've paid for the documents app, paid for an additional bundle, I have what I need, I don’t want an advert for the rest constantly on show in the folder tree. Also, some of the other paid-for apps have additional in-app purchases to unlock the full feature set. All of this would be fine in a free app, it is what you expect, but I expect better from an app I have already paid for.
