Documents 5 by Readdle updated with iOS 7 interface, new file browser

One of the best ways to read, annotate and organize documents and photos on iOS has been updated with a new interface and lots of little improvements.

Documents 5, from Readdle, the company behind Scanner Pro, Calendars 5 and Printer Pro, has received a design overhaul to look and feel more like a native iOS 7 app. Optimized for iPad and iPhone, the app will open and annotate practically any document, from Office documents to PDFs, which can then be saved and either exported to the cloud, or printed with a cloud-enabled printer. It also supports video and music playback, and the new file browser has been optimized for high-definition photos.

Considering the iPhone and iPad are increasingly being used to review documents and perform “real” work, apps like Documents are important to maintain a good workflow. The app allows for the creation of folders, the files of which can be dragged and dropped, and it syncs with Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive and other cloud services. The new version also supports background updates, so you don’t have to open the app to synchronize changes.

Documents 5 is a pretty good app on its own, but when used in conjunction with a cloud service like Dropbox, which can’t handle the annotation requirements of many professionals, it becomes invaluable.
