Question: Files app without iCloud

Ipad Pro 10.5 running IOS 11xx. I do NOT use iCloud. Files seems useless to me. Nothing under favorites. Nothing under locations allowing access to files ON the iPad -which has 512gb of storage so I do not have to use iCloud. Using PDF Expert/Files Pro because they are functional.

Is Files really this bad?

iPad Pro Wi-Fi, iOS 11.0.3

Hi guardrail22. Basically, yes. The Files app can access iCloud Drive, other cloud servers, and the local storage of enabled apps, like Pages. If all your apps were enabled, Files could work like a computer home directory. Otherwise, other file manager apps are much more useful.
