For me, this app has replaced filer since Filer removed the Wifi transfer option. This app is fully accessible and all elements are clearly labelled. I use it daily to read books in .doc or .docs format and it has replaced Safari as my iPhone browser. I also use it’s built-in media player to watch audio-described videos while out and about. I use the paid version of this app and would recommend it to anyone. The only difference between the free and paid version, is the free version limits you to 7 downloads.
