    I want to be able to record tags against files and then then sync them with Android tablet, so that I can filter by tags to provide a short list of suitable files.

    Hi

    To sync files, use drive

    To add tags, my solution is to rename files with hashtags of your choosing in the file name ie

    originalname#tag1#tag3.pdf
    anotheroriginalname#tag1#tag2.pdf

    Then you can search for #tag2 or "#tag1 #tag2"

    I have not found another way to do this (other than with emails, where gmail does the job via labels)
