Affinity Photo local folder via Files app API?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if the current Affinity Photo app does not have the correct API implemented to view files natively in iOS 11's new files app. I know some apps have been updated to iOS 11 and have included the new API.

 

I have noticed that other apps that have a File Explorer feature are being updated to include files viewable via the new Files app on iOS 11. There are 2 different implementations I have seen so far, 1st: the app just lists the Service on the side and when tapping on the service to view files, brings up a pop up over the Files app. 2nd: the app updated their API to have files viewable in the files app native, and not a popup.

 

I have included some screenshots that may help explain what I am talking about.

 

I hope we can get native file viewing or file management with the new files app.

This is a must feature.  Also integration needs to be improved with NAS devices.  I would like to be able to work directly from my NAS or my iPad.  Using iCloud with files this big can be pointless for many.  The file browser in iOS 11 works great but affinity phot need to be adjusted to use it correctly.

Oh yes, working with NAS is definitely a must have.
