another premature delivery
ridiculous, half-baked, and bug-ridden
Apple’s new app FILES came with iOS 11. It shows that some developers should better look for other jobs.
• Create a folder within FILES using a BOX. You aren’t able to delete it. Try to create a folder on your Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox account. It’s not possible. Try to create a link to share a file or folder. It’s not possible. Try to move a file from eg Google Drive to OneDrive. It’s not possible. Try to rename a file on Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, or any other cloud storage. It’s not possible. Try to create different WebDAV connections. It’s not possible.
• FILES give users abso-fucking-lutely ridiculous connections between apps and files.
Look at my example. The file band_5.js appears under “Files“ in the Notification Center. It represents a part of encrypted information created by the password manager 1Password. Tapping on this entry opens the encrypted file with Apple’s iWork app PAGES. Insanely.
Dear Apple developers.
Is this your first approach to Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning?
For me who developed applications for more than 30 years I can only say …
That’s enough to make me puke.
Please don’t try to connect objects which shouldn’t be connected. Just give us a powerful classic file manager. If you aren’t able to do this easy task we already came with Windows decades ago try to acquire Stratospheric, the company which developed an awesome app called FileBrowser. They are light years ahead of your embryonic FILES app.
Hey, Tim Cook, are you sure about your employees responsible for iOS development? I see a huge gap between your potential of developing finished software and your cash reserve. So much money but still an embryonic file management (and the sheer impossibility to release a flawlessly performing iOS update).
I know what the reason for this system behavior is but I also know that not everything should be done what’s possible.
Thanks for 💧ping by.
