True, you can use iCloud, DropBox and many other cloud based storage systems to keep your documents available, but if you lose your internet connection you also lose your ability to access your documents.
Another issue that you might run into is having the right application installed so that you can open the document. Media players, PDF readers, Microsoft Word and other media might pose a problem for you.
If you use an iPhone, you’ll be pleased to learn that Readdle has released a version of it’s popular iPad app, Documents. The app is now a universal app which means that it will now work on either the iPhone or the iPad.
Some of the things that Documents can do are:
- Watch video and listen to music, as well as store files locally on the iPhone and iPad.
- Open and view any document received on the iPhone: MS Office document, Apple iWork file, Adobe PDF, text document, photo, music or video.
- It also supports a wide range of photos, images, and media file formats.
Sounds good right? But wait, there’s more (I always wanted to use that line in a blog post!) It’s free! Get it here:
Sorry Android users, this one is strictly for the iPhone!
