Top 8 | File Manager Apps for iPhone

File manager apps for your iPhone generally come in different shapes and sizes. There are those that allow you to manage your files locally, including the organization of things like documents, photos and video files. Then there are those that allow for cloud storage, such as Dropbox, which offer you a startup space of several GBs and then charge for any storage space you wish to purchase thereafter. There are plus points to all these kinds of apps, with services like Dropbox existing as an excellent way to not only store your files but also to share them on the Cloud. Then there are these small third party apps created specifically with the iPhone in mind that simply give you a better system and UI to use when arranging your files locally on your device. We decided to create a Top 8 list dedicated to both these kinds of apps, and the results follow on below. Check out some of our favorite file manager apps for the iPhone and then feel free to suggest your own picks in the comments section below!

8. iFiles ($3.99)


More of a nostalgic entry than anything else, iFiles was one of the first file manager apps I came across for the iPhone and I used it for quite some time without seeking out an alternative or really understanding the world of cloud storage. It’s a versatile enough file manager for the iPhone, though could do with the occasional frequent update. It has a built in voice recorded which allows you to dictate your own notes, and the click and hold functionality is easy enough for even beginners to get the hang of quickly. You simply grab and hold an item in order to view the different available operations, such as moving a file applying a lable, and more. It also supports some formats that other similar file manager apps may not, such as PDF among others. – Download from iTunes

7. Files Pro ($4.99)


One of the best things about these local file manager apps for the iPhone is that they provide excellent integration with some of the best cloud storage apps which we will mention later on. This is certainly the case with Files Pro, which links seamlessly with the likes of Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox. You can grab your files from these platforms instantly and store them locally, as well as securing remote access to your files using a password.- Download from iTunes

6. FileMaster (Free)


FileMaster is another excellent management app for the iPhone, allowing you to do a number of different operations such as create new folders, import photos and videos and even play mp3 files. There are a few good authentication features here too: you can apply a password to a given app or folder, or even simply set up WiFi authentication to ensure that you can only access these files when connecting to your local network. – Download from iTunes

5. File United ($4.99)


The file manager apps these days don’t have much originality in the way of names, and in fact when browsing the App Store it’s often difficult to tell one from the other. Files United is another app that allows you to manage your files with ease, with a browser that supports a number of different functions such as creating new folders, tagging your favorite files, copying and moving different documents and even the applying of passwords to protect your most personal folders and their contents. There are also some great sharing functionalities here, and the app even allows you to access your files through the SMB protocol if you are a Windows user. It’s an excellent way to manage your files not only on your iPhone but also on your Mac, and eases the transfer between these two platforms as well as providing access to cloud sharing services like Dropbox – more on that one later. – Download from iTunes
