The disparity in ways that file selection is presented or obstructed in apps is bewildering and frustrating.

The only way apps should be doing it currently is with iOS 11 style file APIs, but many apps have either legacy file solutions, bespoke (ie, confusingly different — and differently-abled) file pickers or would rather pull you into their own cloud platform. The disparity in ways that file selection is presented or obstructed in apps is bewildering and frustrating. It forces me to become the expert on file picker UI and capabilities from app to app — time consuming, pointless knowledge that should be learnt once at a platform level. Of the legacy methods; copying/sharing from iTunes is prehistoric, duplicating files between apps is barbaric, and sharing files between apps with WebDAV is soporific. If you have better options, use them. Many apps offer some specific integration with a cloud service — some to widen your options, others to steer you to their own eco-system.” —

Well put. Some file organizing difficulties are so obtuse that I wonder if developers use their own apps.
