Document organisation is becoming ever more popular with those wanting to move to a paperless workflow. Whilst apps such as Evernote allows us to keep everything in one place, it’s multipurpose functionality can make it a little bit overwhelming when wanting to organise specific documents.
Doo attempts to be your central location for all your documents, regardless of what popular syncing service they may be stored in, whilst using some iOS-specific features that add to the experience.

Some people want better file management on the iPad, which means that they’ll probably need Documents. The app comes as a total revamp of ReaddleDocs and is even more capable than the old version.
