ReaddleDocs gets 2.0 update with extreme makeover

Readdle, one of the leaders in document solutions for the iPhone/iPod Touch, has just released the 2.0 update for their excellent ReaddleDocs app. I previously tested out the app and found it to be a great file manager solution on the go. Aside from the slew of features bundled with the app, you do get 512 MB of free data storage on the Readdle Store, which makes having access to all your files remotely an extremely easy task. With the 2.0 update, Readdle have implemented a completely new interface that not only looks amazing but is also more user friendly. Here’s what’s new:

  • Download attachments to the iPhone directly from mail server
  • Completely redesigned interface
  • More advanced PDF viewer
  • Embedded reader for epub, fb2 and txt books

If you’re in need of an app that acts as a central hub for all your files while you’re away from your main computer, I highly recommend you check out ReaddleDocs 2.0. And the ability to now download attachments directly to your iPhone from any number of email accounts is also a very handy feature. The bottom line: transferring and storing files on the iPhone has never looked this good! More screenshots and a complete list of features after the gap.
