List of Apps That Support Open In

Your rating: None (2 votes)

iOS doesn't have a user-accessible file system. But apps are often narrowly focused, and they ought to work together. For example, how can you annotate a PDF from your cloud-hosted private storage? Ether your PDF annotating app must support your particular cloud, or your cloud app must support PDF annotation. Or, alternatively, your cloud app should be able to pass a file to your favorite PDF annotator, which can send the file back when done.

The best feature we have for this now is the "Open In..." button increasingly present in apps. Although not ideal (it ought to be called "Send a copy to...") it is what it is.

This is a list of apps that support saving copies of their files into other apps via the iOS "Open In..." functionality. Please add your favorite apps.
