For all the simplicity of iOS, many users still dream of an OS X-style Finder for Apple's mobile operating system. That dream may never be fulfilled, but until then, Files App might just fit the bill.
Sonico Mobile has announced the release of Files App, a 99-cent universal app that makes it simple to manage and view files of just about any kind using your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
Judging from the app website, Files App is a model of simplicity -- the UI is essentially a + button for adding files from almost anywhere, icons for grid or list view and an Edit button manage and organize files.
From the + button, users can import files from Mac or PC, Camera Roll, email, web URLs, Dropbox, Box or Google Drive, or create new folders. Everything else is done via touch, which includes collecting files inside iOS-style folders. Drag a file over another to create folders, tap to rename files -- Files App gets it done with simplicity and style.
Sonico has also made importing files from desktop computers a snap. Using any modern web browser, the Files App screen is replicated on the desktop, where files can be moved around or even dragged and dropped onto the screen. (Chrome users can also drag files from iOS to desktop in the same way.)
Files App is now available from the App Store for 99 cents and works with all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models running iOS 5.0 or later.
