OrganiDoc HD: iPad App Written Review
Earlier in the year we took a look at the more iPhone oriented OrganiDoc, by developer Wenjoy Technology. Since our last review of the application, things have only improved, surpassing our original estimates of the app’s potential, and providing an incredibly rich environment in which to share and present content from your iPad in OrganiDoc HD. The title is very quickly becoming the last word in file management on your iPad, seamlessly integrating cloud storage with real-time viewing pleasure. For our thoughts on the latest and greatest in iOS media networking, check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
First and foremost, we’re floored with OrganiDoc HD’s complete and total integration with a variety of cloud-based storage locations, including GoogleDocs and DropBox, as well as iOS 5’s impressive iCloud service. Matter of fact, the app’s extensive fair play with iCloud alone makes it easily worth a download. Each and every file pooled from within the app can easily be synced to the new service, making it a cinch to immediately backup any important media files you’d like to preserve. And besides offering simple connectivity with almost every cloud storage unit you can name, OrganiDoc HD also makes it a basic task to view most (if not all) file formats. The app comes standard with support for all MS Office formats, making it an ideal solution for the businessman with an iPad attached at the hip. There’s also integration with most major video formats, as well as tight support for PDFs, photo formats, and common web pieces. Best of all, there’s even a compression engine that will churn out or churn in compressed files for you, all from the safety of your iPad. Add to this AirPlay support for streaming media directly to a presentation device, and you’re looking a solidly useful iPad file manager.
Design and Layout
Previously we raved about the smooth design and implementation of OrganiDoc HD’s various features, and we’re happy to report that—even with extensive improvements—the same slick interface has kept its head up. All of the necessary features are a short stab of a finger away, while everything else just works within the app. This means you will hardly need to think about decompressing files, or having to load pieces to a complex exporting panel for a quick move. Rather, you’ll quickly find that the important bits of OrganiDoc HD’s armor are applied directly and seamlessly, waiting for you to uncover them.
Previously we felt the five dollar price tag a bit hefty, but considering the massive amount of improvements, we now feel the cost is spot-on. OrganiDoc HD is an incredible value, especially for the consummate media professional, or the businessman with a need for such quality file management on the iPad. Either way, OrganiDoc HD earns a full four stars and a recommendation.
OrganiDoc HD requires iOS 4.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
