Sick of opening all your files in different apps? The new iFile app is a multifunctional text, image, music, document, and video reader. You can edit, browse, watch and listen to almost any kind of file that your iOS device can read, all from a single app.
You can also share files with friends, run a portable web server on your iPhone, sync files to Dropbox, and more…
Darkness Production‘s handy new iFile app (available on iTunes; $1.99) makes it very easy to search, view and play your files in one useful app. Not only can it read Microsoft Office files but also print and mail PDF files. It can also read video files such as mov, mp4, 3gp, m4v, mpeg4, and mpv, and image files such as png, gif, jpg, tiff, tif, bmp, bmpf, cur, ico, and xbm. This app can access text files such as txt, rtf, rtfd, and music files such as mp3, aif, aiff, m4a, m4r, wav, caf, and aac.
Inside the app, tap on any file to open it. Swipe the icon to the right to display the actions menu; swipe to the left to open the addition menu. Up and down swiping motions will scroll the toolbar.
Each type of file category is neatly displayed, and editing functions such as selection, deleting, moving, and copying are all easily accessible on the bottom of the main menu screen. The monochromatic background scheme makes each file section stand out and eliminate any distractions.
With iFile, all file reading and actions are located in one single app. The fact that iFile can read so many different popular and not-so-well known file types makes this app the most useful file reading app available today.
The iFile app is compatible with iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S and 5), iPod touch (3rd, 4th and 5th Gen) and iPad and runs on iOS 5.0 or later.
