iPad App Review: OrganiDoc HD

iPad App Review: OrganiDoc HD

September 7th, 2012 by

Document storage and reading apps are a necessary crop in the App Store, since Apple decided to make it so difficult to get documents on and off of your phone in the first place. OrganiDoc HD allows you to store and view multiple file formats, and get them on and off your device in one of several convenient ways. Cloud storage download and upload, USB connection through the iTunes document handler, direct file transfer through USB; videos, pictures, Office files, PDFs. No matter what type of file you want to view, OrganiDoc HD has a way to get it onto your device. Throw in AirPlay and TV Out support and you have a portable presentation and movie-watching machine as well.

How It Works

The main screen shows your documents organized by type. You can create cloud storage accounts to transfer files, or open up the web server interface to drag and drop files from a web browser on another computer. It also supports unzipping archives, so you can view and work with the contents of an archive without first unpacking it on a computer and transferring it over.

The document view screen supports different viewing modes, including CoverFlow, but curiously the photo and video screens do not. You can also create folders in your organizational structure and password-protect them, as well as emailing files out directly from the app. The app also supports iWorks file types, which is an unexpected and welcome feature.

Pros And cons

OrganiDoc HD benefits from being HD-only, which means it only runs on the iPad. This limits the user base but means you get a lot more screen to view and work with your documents, and also means the developers aren’t creating an interface for two different-sized screens.

The interface overall is a little non-intuitive, but overall it’s not terribly confusing and I found it generally easy to figure out what I was trying to do. I’ve seen apps with larger feature sets that unfortunately suffer with slower performance and more confusing layouts, so OrganiDoc HD is generally simpler to use than the competition without sacrificing too much in the way of features.

Overall

If you need a robust document viewer with the ability to view almost any file type and transfer it to and from your device in almost every way imaginable, then you need look no further than OrganicDoc HD. It’s easy to use, stable, feature-rich, and gets the job done right.
