The advantage to Cloud storage is the ability to consult files from anywhere that offers an internet connection. The disadvantage is trying to keep all these files in some kind of order, ever easy to check in with.
iExplorer HD sets out to make such things that bit simpler. It’s an iPad app that lets its users view all their files from within the one app, whether they be located on an FTP server, SkyDrive, Google Docs, DropBox, CloudMe or numerous other services.
It’ll help out during a multitude of situations such as for work purposes or just for using the iPad as a PDF reader or media player. A file viewer means iExplorer HD should be able to open pretty much any file format possible from PDF to iWork or Office files. There’s even a built in code viewer with syntax highlighting for languages such as Objective C, Java, PHP and more.
With such a well rounded complement of functions, iExplorer HD should help many a work focused iPad user. It’s out now, priced at $4.99.
A little over two years ago, Jason Fanguy wrote up a review of Scanner Pro, a portable scanner app by Readdle (also known for other popular file management and productivity apps like Printer Pro and ReaddleDocs).
Many updates ago, when Scanner Pro was on version 1.2.5, Jason described the app as “best in class,” the interface as “refreshingly clean,” and was amazed by the clarity of the text-heavy documents he scanned. Now, many updates later, Readdle has released the 4.0 version of powerful Scanner Pro. This update focused on making Scanner Pro the best scanner app for the iPad.
Since the new iPad boasts such a powerful camera, it’s become the ideal device for an app like Scanner Pro. It’s now a universal app. But the iPad version isn’t just a scaled up version with better graphics. The app has been completely redesigned with the iPad in mind. Other important new features include faster image processing, folders to organize scans, and a search by name or date option.
Three major updates later, Scanner Pro is the same price ($6.99) as it was when Jason reviewed it two years ago.
