What's New in Version 6.0.3
- stability and performance improvements
I use this app frequently to transfer, photos music and videos from my PC and it works mostly just fine for that. The only two issues I have found are 1: it seems to have an issue with video size even going back to the PC...eg a 39 min hd video I compiled in iMovie had to be reduced to only 520dpi before I was allowed to transfer it. 2: It shows the "iPod" folder yet I cannot move any music to it...not there on move files. Yes i know I could use iTunes on the PC but if you ever tried iTunes with over 100k songs...better have all day to even open it much less move a few of them. Enabling transfer to iPod folder would be a huge plus for me. If that can not be achieved then maybe beef up the player a little to allow grouping and sorting like the music app that comes with iPad...the one that only reads the iPod folder. All in all despite those 2 things this is a great app and I have not found a better one yet!
Must Have Utility
This tool, coupled with a keyboard, will allow you to treat your iPad as a laptop (with some limitations - iPad, not the app).
Views most files in read only view. Quickly allows moving files from one cloud drive to another (iCloud to Ondrive to Google drive to Dropbox, etc..). You can also navigate to the files here through MSWord for IOS to edit documents. This allows me to keep documents in DOCUMENTS, rather than having a version in DOCUMENTS,MSWORD and depending on your could services, MS OneDrive. Before using this tool, i found myself having multiple copies of the same file and found it hard to rememeber which was the latest.
PDF annotation is fantastic! Allows edits to be adjusted on a desktop computer. Comments, highlights, edits, etc.. The ability to add signature to a document is easy as well. Kudos to the designer. I find more functionality everyday.
Updates are causing issues
The latest update has missed on a couple of fronts. It's very slow to select many pictures (50+) and you can't create a new folder when moving/uploading. I'm sure it'll be fixed but this is the only version I haven't given five stars. You can't see photos in list mode either. Only undated thumbnails. Trying to upload pics to my SMB device just gets stuck "scanning." these updates are causing many issues.
I have used Documents for a while and I always take the time to give it a solid rating. It really boils down to being intuitive and easy to use. It's great for work or school because you can have different folders for subjects. The new music feature isn't for me but it still works great. Love the icloud sync. Better for PDFs than iBooks which loves to delete stuff.
