iOS13 external folders inaccessible

After updating the OS on my iPad, I can no longer access external folders in Textastic.

Previously, I used TIG as a GIT client, Google Drive, and Documents by Readdle. All three are now inaccessible. Google Drive and Documents are listed, but unavailable, TIG disappeared from the list completely.

With iOS 13 Apple changed the way external folders work. File provider apps need to be updated to support folder picking. So currently, this works with iCloud Drive, "On my iPad/iPhone", Working Copy (Git) and Secure ShellFish (SFTP).

I recommend to use Working Copy for Git.
