Define “file management” - and this is not it


Just downloaded in hopes of managing files on my iPad Pro. Opened it up to find no files listed in the app. I thought that perhaps I had mis-read instructions and went to the support area on the developer site. I read the following note in the support area (BTW it is very helpful - kudos) “FileApp is a file manager and viewer but does not browse the iOS system itself. In other words, FileApp will show the files that you add to it.”

I’m sorry, I can only manage files that I add to the app? Well then what about the other 10Gb of files I need to manage that are already on the device? Sorry dude, but that is not managing files on the device.

Hate to say it, but I think all those positive ratings are shills. I can’t imagine that there are not others out there similarly misled by the advertising in the App Store. For managing files, this is not what you are looking for.

Wonderful and Functional


Handles file transfer beautifully and worked as expected. However I could not figure out how to file transfer over USB. That and the file system desktop tool does not have anything for Linux

Fantastic File Explorer / Manager.
