iFiles Pro (universal) is a virtual hard drive for the iPhone or iPad. It lets users access their files from anywhere whether it’s Dropbox, Google Docs, Microsoft Sky Drive or a FTP server. It even lets users access files from a remote computer or website.
When the app is opened for the first time, users are urged to login to their accounts. Everything is displayed on the left side of the screen. Once logged into an account, all the files are displayed on the right side of the screen. Those who have a hard time reading text will be delighted to know that iFiles Pro supports external displays like Apple TV.
I found iFiles Pro to be rather convenient. It’s nice to be able to access all these files in one location. It allows me to delete, rename, view, move and drag and drop files on my iPhone without having to log into a computer. It can even view and store Microsoft Office and PDF files! I never thought it would be possible to carry all my documents in my pocket, but this app makes it happen.
Since iFiles Pro is relatively new, it’s expected that it’s not perfect. There are a couple areas where it can be improved. For one, the interface needs polished some. It’s not possible to hide the left side of the screen so users can’t essentially drag the right side over for more viewing space. The second is that users can only connect to their PC if they are running Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows 2003. There’s no Windows 7 or Windows 8 support, and I don’t think the developer considered Mac computers at all.
Although it’s not perfect. iFiles Pro still is recommendable. The File Manager makes it possible to create folders, unzip files and move files across folders and it even offers the ability to print any saved document directly from an iOS device via Air Print capable printers. It combines many features offered in other apps into one location, which means less clutter on the home screen. Whether you need it for home, work or school, iFiles Pro has you covered.
