Perfect for sharing music for friends 5/5
By Ali ej
If you’ve downloaded a music with this app
You can share that with airdrop and your friend can open it in every app that he/she want!
Was sad to find out that this was no longer Downloader. I got the light version of this back in 2011 and immediately bought the full version. I’ve used it all until last night when I decided to update ios, and honestly i regret it just because I lost all my music and Downloader doesn’t work anymore...
Keeps crashing 2/5
App keeps crashing when you click back page.
WON’T RESTORE MY PREVIOUS PURCHASE OF THE APP 1/5
I got your $4.99 right here!! Rip-off!!!
As many have stated, this program used to be called “Downloads” before iOS 11 came out, then it became unusable with the new OS. So then our friend Hian Zin Jong releases this update, gives it a different name, and charges more for it. The number one reason I even downloaded “Downloads” before was because of the ability to download movie and song files from the Internet. This new “Files App” has removed that functionality completely and is charging more.
The only reason I downloaded and bought this was because I thought it would be just the same as the old “Downloads”. It’s not. So what you have is a basic Internet browser that has less functionality as the loaded Safari for iOS. Let’s not even get into Mr. Jong’s customer service as there is none and he replies to nothing. “Files App” is constantly crashing for the most mundane functions. It’s literally garbage. As far as I’m concerned this app is a waste of your time and money and you should look elsewhere. Congratulations on scamming so many people out of their money Mr. Wang. Capitalism is alive and well.

Not able to edit the name for a MP3 file 3/5
By Majdi Omar
Hope all is well, i have tried to edit a MP3 file many times like ( edit the name or/and delete the artwork picture that comes with the song) and i couldn’t do that..so please advise,
What happened to the old app? I loss a lot of stuff.
By Djicepac/ Pizzle
this app use to let me make-a music folder or playlist listen in the subway or email it but now it changed and i purchased the full version still didnt work
It’s great but... 3/5
Ever since the iPhone X support update I kept crashing when trying to use the app
Ok but scam 1/5
Triviawiz3000 said it best. It's a shame most people wont be able to see his review since only fake paid for reviews are shown first.
Dont do it. I bought the last app the developer made and then they didn't update it so it couldn't work with the new IOS update. Instead they made the exact same app with a different name and charged a newer price. Completely ridiculous. They will probably use this same method again and again in the future to keep scamming their own customers.
Dejavu or...? 1/5
Like most, I’m a user, or should I say I used to be a user of the “Downloads” app. However, it no longer works. It was a great app and I recommended it to multiple people. Anyways, I found out the creater of the app made another app called “Files.” It is oddly the exact same app and you have to repurchase again. I no longer have access to my other content, it doesn’t transfer over, and you are not grandfathered into the new app. So, I do not think I will be repurchasing.
By Debtors hookah
Developer should update the original “downloads” app , paid for it and now i gotta lose all my stuff and pay for this one that doesn’t work properly 😡😡😡
Not Worthy at all 1/5
It's a fake app, you can't download a thing.
The Best Download And Player Combo App 5/5
By America's App Advisor
I’ll begin with A Word About YouTube: You CANNOT Download YouTube files using this App. If that’s what you seek - it’s not here.
The UI, reliability and performance of this app are top-notch. The built-in Web Browser has the most effective Desktop User Agent I’ve used, period.
This App is a well-crafted tool. And it has something in common with other tools:
a). used properly = highly effective!
b). used improperly = highly ineffective!
If you’re clueless about MIME Types and Setting Up the App for your specific files & needs? Write the Developer, tell him your device, iOS version and for example say ‘I’d like to configure my MIME Settings for video files, audio files, pdf files and GIF files. Tell him once he sends those you’ll upgrade to the full version. You'll want to upgrade to the Full Version via In App Purchase.
About Me: I bought the iPhone 1 the moment the Apple Store in RI opened it’s doors on June 29, 2007. Ten years of iPhones & 4000 Apps later; I’ve learned quite a bit about iDevices and Apps. And this is a winner!!
I have the old version 5/5
By Kiana Khoshmood
I already bought the old version and it’s not working anymore
I upgraded to ios 11 today
It was working and there was no updates
I searched your name and I found this
It’s not fair, why should I pay for this version as well
You are the same developer and this is literally the same app :(
the developer has deleted previous app which i’ve purchased. and giving this limited app to be purchased again
Almost Always 2/5
I love this app. I bought the full version. But unfortunately for no reason some websites will cause the app to crash. I have opened the websites on other browsers (safari and google) and neither crashed. I'm hoping this gets fixed by the next update. Also not this is on my iphone but on my iPad It doesn't crash. Go figure. One more thing. After I delete a file I won’t be able to open up another file. I need to close and re-open the app for anything it work afterwards.
Worst developer worst service double dipping thief 1/5
I used his other app downloads for years and when iOS 11 came out it became useless because he didn’t update it to 64 bit. Then had to buy this app which worked with iOS 11 until latest update and now it does what downloads does, opens and immediately crashes. Emailed developer and no response. And it says app was updated a week ago. Let’s see if this double dipping thief fixes the issue or if I will have to spend another half a day moving all my stuff out of this app like I did with downloads.
No way to download. App is now useless to me. 2/5
By Bugz baby
I Used to love the app, I had to hold down the link and the “download file as” would appear. Now, there is only an “open” option neither that or tapping download link will give an option to download the video just to open it. Please fix. Just started after updating the app to this new version. Hate to switch to a newer app but I need to download
It’s a Scam app people! Do not purchase! 1/5
By SL Manula
This app will work for sometime until it convince you pay for the full version. But eventually with time the developer will make the app unusable (even though you don’t update it). And again the developer will release another app with a different name to do the same trick and make you purchase that as well.
Doesn't prompt to download 1/5
I had the precursor of this app on my iPhone until recently when it no longer worked for the new IOS. So, I found this app to replace it. The problem is that unlike the other app when I click on a video it just plays the video where as the other app, downloads, would prompt me to let me know I could download the video instead of viewing it right then.
Scam app...that works. 1/5
You will pay $4.99 for an app that will do exactly what you want it to do. Then you will hold your breath for every ios update. It may not be for a while but after one of those updates, this app will stop working. All of your songs or other files will be lost. Instead of updating your already paid for app the designer will simply change its name and charge you another $4.99 or so. Dont expect a response if you try to contact him. This is the applestore version of a ponzi scheme.
Add feature 5/5
Please add video player with swipe left and right to forward movie time, and swipe up and down to volume up and down
More fixed 5/5
So can we get the video forward/backward scrub to the bottom of the screen? On my iPhone X whenever I’m viewing a video horizontally, whenever I want to skip to a certain part in the video I’m always accidentally swiping down on my notifications. Also can you make the video viewer fit towards the iPhoneX as well? I just paid for this, so it’d be nice! Thanks
Some flaws... 2/5
Can’t download independent files anymore like the original download with the new iOS.
Download error 1/5
By Prince Naimat Adeel
Plz admin right the Error of downloading videos. The new version is not downloading the videos
Updatw Dropbox 2/5
Please update the app so it is compatible with Dropbox. Dropbox has updated their version and when I try to connect to my Dropbox on this app it doesn’t work anymore. It used to work. Please fix.
Amazing app and support! 5/5
Love being able to save videos for viewing later, away from internet or to quick pick up where u left off without having to scroll through the video. Recently asked bout support for the iPhone X,, and shortly after,, they updated the app to support it. Awesome.
Double-dipping developer 1/5
By h B0mb
Like many others, I bought this app years ago at full price when it was called Downloads. The developer renamed it to Files, didn't provide an upgrade path or restored iTunes purchase, and now is charging full price again. The Downloads app does not work with iOS 11. I emailed the developer months ago and never heard back. I can't recommend this product as this behavior is likely to continue on further iOS upgrades. Buyer beware!! 😡
“New” version of an old app 1/5
I’m originally a “downloads” user, the name of the old version of this app. I actually wouldn’t mind paying the $5 again for this app if I was able to access my files on the old app.. I have over 50gb of content on the original downloads app that I can no longer access. Restore access to the old app and I’ll give this 5 stars and pay my $5
The GOAT 5/5
Great app, been using it since it came out on tiny little iPod Touch 4th gen all the way to iPhone X. Yeah it can be buggy but it gets the job done better than any app on the App Store!
I already paid for downloads now I have to pay again? 2/5
By Axle daze
Looks like this developer has abandoned his old app renamed it and charged again for the full version ... it’s the exact same interface nothing new. What a garbage move
By [SRP] V.C
Needs a browser option to open link
Either background or new tab/Page!!?? Thankx in advance with this [#GREAT] [#APPLICATION] crashes a bit but reliable on download and/or download speed as long as connection is stable!! [#
I know you can hold it and do it but too much animation sometimes crashes the connection......
Need a automatic option on the browser side to set: OFF/OPENINBACKGROUND/or
Nearly perfect, but crashes a bit 5/5
I’ve been using this app and the older one before it for years now. Sometimes I’ll try other “download” apps, but they’re never as good as this one. It reliably downloads everything I’ve tried.
There’s just 2 problems I’ve had on multiple iOS devices:
1: it crashes if I’m scrolling a web page and press the “back” button while it’s still scrolling.
2: Resource-heavy pages with lots of gifs and photos will cause the entire app to slow down and crash after a while.
Other than that, I love everything about this app. The browser interface (it’s just like using Safari), it’s easy to manage files, and the Recovery Mode in the Settings app is great for getting out of those annoying pop-up loops.
No Update No Fix 1/5
By Hoseyn Rezazadegan
When I do back button, crash it, Pls Fix it
Won’t restore original app purchase. 3/5
I used the older version of the app for college materials and liked it so much that I bought the full version of it. The old app stopped working on iOS 11 and I luckily found the new version of the app, but the full version of the app did not transfer over to the new one.
I guess I’ll buy the full version again to be able to download my class PowerPoints.. Three star rating for this and a few interface issues.
Not be able to download music 5/5
By GAFARU RAUF
I need solution because I paid for it
Needs to be like the old downloads app 3/5
I bought this version of the app because my old app wouldn’t work on the new iOS but I’m disappointed that a lot of features have disappeared. If they support download of audio content it will be a 5 star app again
It keeps crashing after every website and its making me really regret paying $5. Please fix this ASAP !
I have the older app for my phone and it keeps crashing on IOS 11, please can you update it so I can use it.
