Documents 5 Brings File Management to iPhone, iPad

| Cool Stuff Found

Readdle's new Documents 5.0 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch aims to make your iOS file management easier, or to be fair, possible at all. The app works as a central repository where add-on apps can look for your documents and perform tasks such as viewing files, converting files from one format to another, add color coded tags, organize documents in folders, print, and more. Documents 5.0 is free and available at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.

I’ve had this app for a while but haven’t really taken the time to learn how to use it. But just reading the article spurred me to read through the Support\help. I was very quickly and easily able to connect to my Mac via SFTP and copy a file to the documents download folder. There’s a lot of functionality built in here. I’m going to have to think through how to use it to my best advantage. There’s some good info in their Help. It’s very simple straightforward and clear. I just need some time with it as there’s a lot built in to think about and how to coordinate it with Apple’s Pages, Numbers and other apps. It turns the iPad into quite a bit more of a computer. It would be nice if there was some primers on what you can do on an iPad in Documents that improve productivity; some examples to jog my brain into how to take best advantage of the pretty comprehensive suite of tools it has.

If any Documents users can point me to some articles, it would be appreciated.
