Popular developer Readdle has released an M1 Mac version of its excellent Documents app to the App Store, bringing support for cloud providers and more to a single Mac app.

The app, announced via a blog post, allows users to access Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cloud providers from within a single app – including support for multiple accounts.

With Documents, not only can you neatly organize your files into folders & subfolders, but you can also connect different cloud storage accounts and Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, etc. and access your files from these services. If you have multiple accounts, you can connect them all.

Documents for Mac also supports "the world's fastest VPN", giving users the peace of mind needed when using third-party WiFi connections etc.

Users can also enjoy a ton more features including the ability to mark up documents, watch content via the built-in media player, and more. Readdle also notes that anyone who bought Documents Plus on their iPhone or iPad will also benefit from the same features on their Mac, too.

If you already use Documents on your iPhone and iPad, you'll feel right at home on the Mac. What's more, if you subscribe to Documents Plus on iOS, you'll have all the premium features available to you on the Mac as well at no additional cost. Enjoy the same desktop-class PDF editing, the world's fastest built-in VPN, and lots more... now on your Mac.

You can download Documents for Mac from the Mac App Store right now. It's free with the optional in-app purchase for Documents Pro available. Documents is a great app for students so why not pair it with the best MacBook for students, too?
