Readdle Launches Documents, A Free File Manager & Media Player For iPad



Readdle is well-known for its awesome productivity apps for the iPhone and iPad, so it’s always exciting when the company launches something new. Today sees the release of Documents, a terrific file manager, document editor, and media player for the iPad that promises to be unlike any other app you’ve download.

“You will use it constantly, at home, office, university or on the road, every single day,” Readdle says. And what’s more, Documents is completely free.

Documents is “the most capable application on your iPad,” replacing standalone document viewer, PDF readers, download managers, and media players. It rolls all of these things into one in a package that’s beautifully designed and easy to use. Although Documents just hit the App Store today, I’ve been testing it out over the past few weeks, and I only have great things to say about it.

Here are a few of the features Documents offers:

★ READ ★
✓ View Office Documents
✓ Read and Annotate PDF files
✓ Search Inside Documents
✓ Edit Text Files
✓ Read Books and Articles

✓ View Photos from a Vacation or a Party
✓ Watch Movies in the Airplane or Subway
✓ Listen to Your Favorite Music

✓ Manage your files
✓ Copy Documents from Mac or PC
✓ Sync with iCloud, Dropbox, GoogleDocs and other Services
✓ Share Files with Your Friends
✓ Protect Everything with a Password

★ SAVE ★
✓ Store Email Attachments
✓ Download Documents from the Web
✓ Save Web Pages to Read them Later

That’s quite a feature set, isn’t it? So whether you’re editing a piece of work on the way to the office, watching a movie you’ve (legally!) downloaded from the Internet, or sharing photo albums with your friends via Dropbox, Documents is there to help you do it. It’s a one-stop shop for pretty much anything, and the more you use it, the more uses you’ll find for it.

You can download Documents for iPad now from the App Store using the source link below. And again, this isn’t a ‘lite’ version, there are no in-app purchases, and you won’t have to look at adverts — it’s just completely free.
