If you don’t know about Readdle Documents, then you need to run out and install it on your iOS (e.g. iPad, iTouch, iPhone) device right away! I use it every day and it’s taken the place of my old favorites such as:
- iFiles – This was my favorite file manager, but it never quite got to the level I wanted, although it was the best around (IMHO) until Readdle Documents came along. I seldom use it anymore.
- GoodReader ($4.99) – I never use GoodReader anymore now that I have Readdle’s Documents app.
- FlexPlayer – Documents plays MP4, m4v videos without problem (although it can’t handle AVI, FLV) videos, plays full-screen and works quite well. If you want multiple format support, FlexPlayer is still the one to go with (with in-app purchases for even more flexibility) but Documents will get the job done!
- and Stanza (free ebook reader) – Documents works great because it lets me organize my collection of ebooks in ePub, PDF format rather than just try to scroll through one long list, which is what Stanza forces you to do.
…and adds new features that some of these didn’t have, such as better file organization. You can also interface with various cloud storage solutions (e.g. GoogleDrive, Dropbox, WebDAV, FTP, SugarSync, Box, SkyDrive, etc.).
A little about Readdle Documents, which launched a new version today that is FREE (no cost) and if you haven’t installed it yet, why haven’t you?!?
Today we are launching a new application – Documents. It is a robust document reader, media player and file manager for iPad.Why should you install Documents on your iPad?The application is super useful. A child could use it, but is can do so much, that we have a 20-page guide to cover everything. With all this power, Documents is completely free (with no ads or in-app purchases).The ultimate goal was to create an app that everyone will use. It had to be elegant, easy to use and powerful.

If you’re wondering how it’s replaced 3 different apps, here’s how:
