iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
If you’re looking for the perfect file management app for iPad, FileCentral is likely the last app you’ll ever need to download. Developed by EuroSmartz Ltd, this incredibly handy app goes far beyond simple printing and file conversion.
Concept and Functionality:
Though the name of the app is FileCentral, technically it’s like an iPad in your iPad.
The app prides itself on its printing capabilities, document conversion tools, and tons of supported file formats, but I can honestly say that those operations are but a mere glimpse at what FileCentral is really capable of.
In terms of actual file management, FileCentral allows users to convert documents to formats like PDF, read them with ease, and even print them on regular USB printers.
Once a luxury for those who were willing to invest in WiFi printers that were supported by iPad, this opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for those of us who are still using classic USB printers.
It works by syncing with a free software program on the PC that the printer is connected with and once everything is set up, you can even print documents far away from home on a cellular network (if your iPad is compatible).
FileCentral also includes extras like a built-in email client, photo management, a clean and easy view of your contacts, and even a calendar. The name of the app makes much more sense if you think of files being photos and contact cards, not just documents.
Overall, it takes a little while to find your way around the app but once you have everything set up and you know your way around, it’s an incredible app to use.
It’s impossible to cover all of the features that FileCentral offers for iPad users, but I’ll touch on a few very important ones.
First, this app is perfect for business environments where the iPad is shared among more than one user because it supports multiple accounts that are password protected.
This is probably a dream come true for businesses that have struggled with the iPad’s nonexistent multi-user platform.
If you ever run into a problem, FileCentral offers 24/7 support with a response time of one hour.
While I don’t usually mention this in reviews, I was happy to see that this is offered because this particular app is geared toward productivity and businesses.
After all, time is money and the last thing you want to do is spend an eternity trying to fix problems.
FileCentral can be downloaded from the App Store for $6.99 and is compatible with iPad.
While this might seem like a steep price, it’s worth every penny if you’re planning on using the app for everything, not just file management.
FileCentral requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
