Supports flexible search options, including regular expressions (for plain text files). Files searched can be selected from standard or custom text file types.

Search folders can be selected from On My iPad, iCloud Drive or external file providers (e.g SMB/USB folder). Saved search folders are retained by the app where possible.

iCloud files in the selected iCloud Drive folders that match the file type (file extension) criteria, will be downloaded prior to searching.


  • Some third party file providers don’t currently provide external folder access (e.g. Google Drive and Dropbox).
