    I am looking for a file manager for the iPhone where I can view files, copy delete create folders etc. I have something called ReaddleDocs which is pretty good, but I can't delete any files. I often download attachments to the iPhone and read them with ReaddleDocs.
    I saw a true filemanager on a Droid Bionic and it was pretty amazing.

    It sure does. This is actually a hidden feature in iOS 5.0 build 9A5327a. Here it is:

    There is an app called FileApp Pro you might want to look at. There are tons in the App Store though. Just do a quick search and I know you will find the one you want. I have used several in the past I just can't remember them all know. I use DocsToGo and DropBox to download/organize all my files these days. YMMV.

    This should be part of the OS, there is not a free App by Apple for that?.

    Files are not shared by applications on a stock iPad so there is no need for a file manager in the classic sense. Apps are sandboxed - and this includes their data files.

    Never has been, so should not be too shocking. There probably are some free ones. You just have to do some searching in AppStore. Of course you get what you pay for. They is one i remember that I used and really liked. It's called File Magic. it's in the App Store. It does everything you described, I think. It's $2.99.

    How about dropbox? Its free. I know its cloud storage but once you open it Its on your device.

    I found and purchased ReaddleDocs. Works great, Does exactly what I want. It allows you to create folders and import and move docs back and forth in the folders.

    You delete files in ReaddleDocs like in every other iOS app: Swipe from left to right.

    Huh? Where is "downloading link" for what and to whom are you responding? By the way, your reply is the first one since 2011.

    They probably want a link for an app or something.

    I'm checking out File Manager-Folder Plus. It was free today, so I thought I'd try it. 5.7 gb storage. IFile is better. But for free, not bad.

    Not trying to be a Smart A** or anything but what would be the reason for a or to use a file manager for IOS? i have never heard this come up before except in a question where people are asking if IOS 8 will include a file Manager. I am just trying to understand where it would be need?

    I think it would be less useful in iOS since the platform is a bit more locked down than Android, etc. I used my file manager in Android for my emulators to keep all my ROMs organized and in the same place. It was also nice for moving documents from internal storage to the SD card. Again, another thing you don't really need in iOS since it doesn't support external storage like that.

    For me it is a nice power user feature to have to make the mobile OS act more like a desktop OS.
