Another File Contents Search Option for iOS

This is just another option to add to the iOS toolbox, thought I'd mention it because I don't see it named often.

I enjoy having all my plain text files at an equal folder level, using both filename and file contents searches for discovery. As you all know, 1Writer beautifully handles file contents searches.

But I have a lot of PDFs too. In my system, any content I didn't create (receipts, web pages, etc) is converted to PDF with OCR. The Documents by Readdle app does a good job of searching for strings within other file types. So I end up using 1Writer mostly, but sometimes I swing over to Documents if I'm looking for, say, my auto insurance card.

The performance is not great with repositories of many GB, but they know of this and are working on making it better.
