ReaddleDocs is the Rolls Royce of document portfolios. Lots of other apps (including Quickoffice and Evernote) let you share, store, and browse files, but this app offers the cleverest mix of methods to spirit files on and off your iPhone. It talks to most online storage services (like MobileMe or, downloads from websites, exchanges with computers on the same network, and lets you email files back and forth.

All true but then when you realize that all you cam do is view the file you'll understand that products like Quickoffice has all the same file transfer options (email attachment, mobilme, WiFi) PLUS the ability to create and edit documents and spreadsheets. Having both I cam honestly say that I only use the Readdle product for PDF viewing as it does a much better job with these files.

@Orion yes, you are right. But in case I just need a document viewer and nothing more, why should a pay $12.99 for the functions that I won't use at all.

Meanwhile I bought ReaddleDocs (after reading the review) for $4.99 and I'm completely satisfied with the app, more over I liked it pretty much and bought a copy for my wife.

I would like to know how this compares to GoodReader. I purchased GoodReader for $2.99 and it is my most used app for downloading, sending, viewing, editing, creating, and zipping/unzipping documents. For $2 dollars more how does this compare with the awesome GoodReader App?
