It’s now easier to manage files on an iPad or iPhone

iOS users should no longer feel stifled by limits. There are apps that allow for easy management of documents on an iOS device

It is a fact that the iPad is fast becoming a laptop-replacement device for many users, primarily for productivity tasks—such as emails and documents. And users aren’t entirely averse to using the iPhone too to quickly edit a document, particularly with the bigger screen size of the iPhone 6 Plus. But, unlike a Windows computer or an Android tablet, Apple’s smartphone operating system doesn’t let users access files in a typical folder structure. This makes it tough if you want to continue working on that document on another device.

Some new-age file managers for the iPhone and iPad not only make it easy to access documents and files, but also offer value-adds such as closer integration with cloud-storage services, enabling file-sharing.

There are three apps which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store directly on to an iOS device.
