One of the things that I use my iOS devices for frequently is document viewing. iOS does have a nice preview function built-in to the system so that you can at least look at your email attachments, but it would be really nice to be able to save your attachments in one centralized location and be able to open them with one app. In order to be able to view all the different file types I use on a daily basis, I would have to have close to a dozen apps installed on my devices. This creates a problem because I don’t have unlimited storage space on my iPhone or iPad. These are the reasons why I love Documents 5 from Readdle.

Documents 5 is a brilliant iOS app that allows you to read, listen, view, download or even annotate with the most common file types in use today. It combines a file manager and media player into one app. You can view files from iWork, MS Office, music files, books, PDFs and even videos within Documents 5. Another big benefit of Documents 5 over individual document apps is that Documents 5 is a free download. That will end up saving you money on apps that you may only need once just to view an attachment on an email.

One feature that is particularly cool about Documents 5 is its seamless integration with cloud storage. You have the option of adding document access to any of your accounts with Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and OneDrive as well as other web server types. Connecting with these services are very easy and I was happy to see this type of integration offered. Once you have connected these services to Documents 5, you can tap on any file and it will be downloaded to your Documents 5 library and you can view it from there.

Another really nice feature is that you can download files directly from the Internet, too. Documents 5 has a built-in browser within the app. It works very quickly and is a great add-on for added file management.

I’ve been very impressed with Documents 5 and what it can do for my file management and work flow. As I mentioned, it’s free to download from the iTunes App Store.
