‘Save to Foldr’ is the preferred method of exporting files from third party apps to Foldr and uses the iOS share extension.  This is an alternative and more advanced method to ‘Import with Foldr’ that iOS provides to allow apps to send/share files between them.  It must firstly be enabled once on the device and is then available across all apps that support share extensions.  The differences between Import with Foldr and Save to Foldr are covered here
