    What apps are you guys using on iOS to give you access to your data in iCloud Drive? I had Documents recommended to me previously; but anytime I attempt to open or view a file in it the app just freezes and I have to force close it.

    I see it seems to focus on PDFs, will it open pictures and will it allow me to open documents in other apps?

    Transmit. It opens some things itself, and lets you open/send to other apps.

    Lets me do other things too of course, heh.

    Yes it will address all the things that you are looking for. It lets u open all the file types. Check out their homepage for more info.

    It can open, in read-only mode, rich texts, iWork and Microsoft Office documents. IIRC photos and audios are supported too. Mind you that GoodReader currently can neither manage folders nor move files among folders per Apple's policy enforcement. It may not be Apple's issue this time, though.

    You may also try Documents 5 by Readdle.

    I have tried Documents 5 and it crashes every time I try to open anything in iCloud Drive.

    None. I do not use iCloud drive at all.

    As a clarification, I just meant those limitations for GoodReader's own iCloud container. Documents 5 should be fine if you play with files in its iCloud container. But for DocumentPicker (Open In), the PDF Expert view seems to have some issues with it (Remote files in Transmit, in my case). GoodReader has no such issue on my iPad so far, but the button to trigger DocumentPicker is buried behind taps... I would rather use the Connect & Sync with Dropbox/OneDrive/etc features of these apps, other than iCloud, even if it is at the expense of no on-demand loading but desktop-ish folder sync, frankly speaking.

    The only thing I can say about iCloud Drive is the attempt of blending seas of messy app containers with generic storage use drastically failed. It needs to be reinvented, again.
