Folder+ Review: A File Handling Machine!
Folder+ is a File Manager / Viewer / Editor for your iPad / iPhone. We have seen several apps that are built on the same premise but the features of Folder+ make it a refreshing addition to the market. It handled just about anything one would expect a file app such as this should and then some.
Folder+ ($4.99) is loaded with features which makes it stand out in a fairly saturated file handling market. The interface is very slick and keeps everything within your reach without having to go in and out of a ton of menus. This is clutch for someone who has to handle a lot of files on the go. The ability to zip and compress folders on the go is also very handy. I haven’t seen this in all of the file management apps but it is a welcome addition.
I also like how Folder+ allows you to long touch on files and folders and give you options of what you want to do. This limits the need to jump in and out of menus. The ability to use multi touch to quickly move between viewing and editing files is also very good if you’re willing to utilize it. Features such as these are what makes this app different from the rest.
The basics of file management apps are also present in this app. You have the ability to create Folders, Text files, Drawings, Audio files, Pictures or Video or upload from Library. This allows you to not only copy files to the device using the built in FTP but also create files right there on your device. Emailing of files and folders allows for sharing your files directly from your phone via email and FTP all from inside Folder+.
Overall I really like Folder+. It is a solid file management app for both iPhone and iPad. You may hesitate at the price of $4.99 as there are cheaper file management apps but few with the features of Folder+. I definitely feel like its worth it as I have both an iPhone and an iPad.
What we like:
- Features: Zipped Folders, Reduced Menus, etc.
- Sleek Look
- For both iPad & iPhone in one purchase
What to know:
