    Does iOS 7 still have no way of attaching multiple pdfs or iwork files in one email (lets say i wanna replay to co-worker and attach 5 files in one email) without using some 3rd party apps?

    You ask how to send multiple zips, etc. without 3rd party app, can I ask how you send even one (without 3rd part app)? Within Mail I can only send photos or videos.

    I hate iOS for not being able to attach multiple attachments. Apple don't care for these things. It's stupid ignorance like this that means windows tablets will start to do well.

    Absolutely. Apples complete failure to provide and even half-way decent email app is beyond my comprehension. Their complete apathy and arrogance towards things like this deserves to be their downfall...they are so behind all the competition in virtually every arena now...is it any wonder their market share is dropping?

    If you don't like this, go with Android. /s As people will tell you

    You can't. But there are lots of apps that provide such function (such as documents). You can use that app for all your files, (and it's very easy to use.)

    Yup that's what I'm waiting to hear!! :)

    I have a lot of Apple kit but that doesn't cloud me to the fact that it really isn't all it's cracked up to be. And this "it just works" bollocks....

    I have an app called phone drive which stores files and allows me to select many and email them...

    I haven't done that slightly peculiar combination, since we're generally using GDrive or something to collaborate across multiple files (of multiple types), but just last week sitting in DCA, I sent someone two PPTX decks from my iPad, both attached in an email.

    iFiles >> Edit/Select Both >> Email/Attach

    Of course it's an app that uses "proxy storage", but it works terrific, can be configured to access GD, DropBox, S3, SFTP, etc., etc., and provides a stub for "open in" during most operations.

    Thanx man, that is what i was looking for. Sure, we should not have to use 3rd party apps to do one of the most basic and fundamental task such as attaching files to email, but what can you do :)

    Yeah, let me know if you have any other questions, since that's a pay app (though cheap), I can check out if your specific scenario is doable before you buy. :)

    FYI, there's also an app called Attachments, it's like an email client that's specially for that, it's designed to easily link to external resources like DropBox in an email.

    It's interesting, while this is a iOS limitation, I find myself rarely running into it very much, just because me , my partners, collaborators, teams, etc., have mostly moved towards a more central storage type model using DropBox, GDrive, iCloud, etc.

    Not to be dumb but if I do a search in the app store for "documents" I find over 1600 apps and none look like the picture you showed (of course I gave up looking after about 80 or so). Can you give me some direction on this as I would like to look at it.

    Thanks

    Documents by readdle stores files, allows multiple emails and zips files etc.

    Multiple email is easily possible, not perhaps the easiest method but not hard by any means.

    I still don't get why people are talking about the inability to attach *multiple* files without a 3rd party app, as opposed to simply the inability to attach *any* number of files including just one.

    The Mail app can only attach photos or videos. If you want to send a .doc (for example), you always need a 3rd party app as far as I can tell. It's down to the quality of that app as to whether you can attach to an email at all, and, if you can, whether you can only attach a single .doc or multiple .docs. Some apps certainly can attach multiple, and Mail has no problem accepting multiple attachments from other apps. But I didn't think was ever the issue at hand, seeing as OP acknowledges 3rd party apps from the start.

    So just a bit :confused: as to what the point of this is...

    Oh geez, sorry about that, the app pics I posted are from iFiles!

    Here's the site:

    http://www.ifilesapp.com


    Direct link to the App Store:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ifiles/id336683524?mt=8


    Another neat couples of functions of iFiles:

    Device-to-device transfer via BT
    Has a web-server you can connect to for downloading/uploading files through a PC/browser

    When you're at the Dashboard, (tap <Back till you navigate there), tap the [+] icon in the top left corner, and you'll see all the services you can add.

    I just noticed they added a ton of new ones too: Flickr, Skydrive, SugarSync, SoundCloud. Pretty cool.
