    The newest update for File Magnet is HUGE (metaphorically).

    It adds a ton of new features, brand new look, and it's totally worth using to read books now.

    They added accelerometer scrolling, a page down button, and a scrub bar to scroll through large documents.

    I give it 5/5 stars, how about you?

    It's a great update but I am being seduced by Briefcase now.

    So many of these apps out there now.

    I started with Datacase, which was good for a while but then it started losing my files. Then, I switched to Files, which is good and which I've been using ever since. I especially like how Files allows me to set a pin for access via the iPhone, so that if I ever lose it, other people won't be able to access my files. Along the way I also got AirSharing when it was free, and tried it for a day or two, but never really stuck to it because it didn't offer any capabilities I'd use that Files couldn't do.

    i have to admit, a scrub bar is a very useful feature.

    once i already have paid for an app, i find it very difficult to pay for another in the same category because then i feel that my initial app was a waste of money.

    for what its worth, ilounge did a comprehensive review of these apps when they first came out (it has since been updated once) so it might not take into account newer versions, file magnet was at the top of the list.

    ilounge's summary of file magnet:

    "In summary, FileMagnet is a good solution for those Mac users who simply want to carry around a few documents on their device, don’t want to deal with configuration issues and aren’t too concerned about maximum portability between computers. At $5, it’s reasonably priced, too. iLounge Rating: A-"
