Can I use iOS 11's new Files app to add content from my iOS device?

Yes — Upthere works great with iOS 11’s new Files app. You can use the Files app to add any type of file from your iOS device to Upthere by 1) sharing from the Files app or by 2) importing into the Upthere Home app. You can also download files from Upthere and save them to specific locations on your iOS device and in the Files app. Check out the steps & video demo below to get started:
