It's pretty garbage for a regular piece of software. You can't even make new files from your phone. So you can't organize your documents or copy paste emails that you need to organize into specific subjects or folders so everything becomes kind of a mess. I mean it works normally I suppose for regular things. The safe folder is kind of cool but the AI response to this review, it's overall disappointing

The app has become very slow and it is very annoying having to wait each time you open a folder and wait for the items to load or if you try selecting something and it takes some time to get selected. Uninstalling and reinstalling updates temporarily fixed the issue but it comes back and I lost the files in my safe folder in the process. Would not recommend at all.

Regret the inconvenience. Please update your app and try again. If you still experience issues, clearing the app storage may help: Open Settings > Apps > Files by Google > Storage & cache > Clear Storage. Important: Clearing app storage deletes files in the Safe Folder. Move your files out of the Safe Folder before clearing storage. Thanks!
