Pocket Files Pro - App Review

The developer says:

"Pocket Files+ is the ultimate tool to manage and keep your photos, videos and documents safe and private: File Manager, Media Player (play all popular formats like AVI, DIVX, FLV, MP4 and more), Photos Vault and a Private Web Browser with file downloader all in one app".

Although we can't disagree with that, there is another way of seeing the App, which is a great way to manage content for those of us who like a structured approach. Whereas, especially in the past, there was a tendency to create folders and populate them with items one felt relevant, there is now a tendency for each App to create its own filing structure and guard it jealously.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Settings allows you to do masses of things, including setting a passcode (length set separately), a recovery e-mail for forgotten passcode, notification of attempting break-in (pick the number attempts before notification), decoy mode (where the screen contains different files and folders), and panic mode (swipe down with three fingers to change to decoy mode).

Adding files and folders is super easy, by merely hitting the + button (very intuitive).

The App Costs $0... in other words, free (unbelievable).

Do you need an file manager for your iOS device? Apple seem to be catching on to the idea that it's not such a bad idea but this App is brilliant, as it does so much more.

The simple bits simply work (the file manager part).

The App needs optional access to your location to notify you of break-ins, as well as your camera. On the plus side you get a photo of the person attempting to get into your account, and they won't even know (at least not until you confront them).

ACIDS Test Rating:

If you even dream of a file manager, you have to wake up to this App.
