Documents v5.6 for iOS, the latest version of Readdle’s most popular document viewing and file management app, introduces an all-new file system that changes the way how you manage files saved on your iOS device or cloud storage. The new and efficient file system takes seconds to navigate between files within the app and those in your cloud storage, allowing you to quickly sort your files without creating files and folders at several locations at once.
With the update Documents app for iPhone and iPad, users can see exactly what’s on their device and what’s uploaded in the cloud from the sections on the Sidebar. Now you don’t need to take many actions to add a new cloud storage, since you can do that right from your sidebar in a couple of taps. Drag and drop makes working with files faster and robust. Just pick an item and drag it to where you want it. That’s it, regardless of whether it was on your device or in the cloud.
Here’s are some of the other new features in today’s update:
Apple Pencil support
When this feature became available in our PDF Expert 5 app, many asked us if it will appear in Documents as well. It took some time, and now you can use Apple Pencil exactly the way you want it within your Documents app.
It’s not always easy to understand the purpose from the storage name (which is often just an email). Well, now you can rename them easily to avoid any confusion.
You can start working on the document on iPad and continue working with it on iPhone. It’s magic! Just make sure that your devices are in the same network and you have Documents installed on all of them.

Watch your favorite show while reading a book or surfing in the browser with picture in picture mode. You can easily pause, close or share the video via AirPlay. Note that PiP mode requires iOS 9.0. or later installed on compatible iPad.
