Documents 5 for iPad

Managing documents on the iPad can be quite a mess. Part of the problem is that there is no file system on the iPad, instead individual files are segregated away into the app used to create it. For example, all my Pages documents are in Pages.

Today, Readdle announced the next version of Documents, and it's huge. (If Readdle sounds familiar to you, it's because they also make our favorite PDF editing app, PDF Expert.) Documents 5 aims to become your file management system for iPad. It bridges your favorite cloud service, like Dropbox or Evernote, with the powerful suite of apps already made by Readdle. 

What does that mean? Well, if you have PDF Expert installed on your iPad, Documents 5 will recognize that and "unlock" its ability to edit PDFs without leaving the Documents 5 apps. This small feature removes a mountain of friction caused by the previous "Open in" method. And this is just one example. Readdle has professional apps for wireless printing, converting files to PDFs, and scanning documents & images

I suspect that Readdle has much more in store for us with Documents 5. Did I mention how much it costs? Go grab it -- it's free
