View files

In the iOS app, you can choose between two different options to view your files. The options are:

  • Content view: Groups your photos and videos together, and shows you larger thumbnails. Folders and files will be displayed in alphabetical order.
  • List view: Shows all your files, folders, photos, and videos in a list.

To switch between the two views, tap the icon to the right of the search bar. The icon will be a list if you're in content view, and a grid if you're in list view. Select a view option from the menu that appears.
