Files needs an update now!!

I’m so disappointed that sometimes, when I clicked an audio clip, (WAV) it loads, it gives me a Microsoft Sound text and my GarageBand stops working, (it doesn’t make a sound when I click any key!) Please, this app needs an update, NOW!! 😥

Searching is less robust than Finder

I just don’t seem to get as many results. It doesn’t appear to search for results inside this app—only the titles.

Been waiting for this since iOS 2!

Good enough for a phone app. It’s not clear to me why should I be limited to copying this app (between phone storage/iCloud) when moving them should be easily possible. Besides there is no option to copy this app to/from iTunes on a PC! It’s a file manager guys!! Integrating this app more and more in menus would be a great improvement as well.

More Widgets / Messages App

Would love to see more widget options for favorites or app folders. Needs Messages app for attachments and sharing.

Remove Grid View as Default

Another poor application of the Grid View from Apple. It should not be the default view. Grid views are great for photos, but terrible for finding and browsing this app. Please make the list view the default and allow the ability to shrink the text size with reasonable defaults.
