1) The app has a higher rating as it has Browser. App doesn't offer any age restricted material and the rating in question is just to meet the apple guidelines due to app having a browser.
2) As per the Apple iOS Security Architecture, an app can not access file system directly or media/files/docs which are stored in other apps. Thus FILES - finder edition can't access files stored in other apps.
3) All trademarks belong to respective owners.
I like the app a great deal. Good interface for file management but no possibility to add cloud services other than what they configure. Looks pretty good so far....
