    By Youssef Amer
    Thank you for your excellent app. Please if you can add more colors to "highlight " option.as this is the only thing missing, other apps have more colors... Thank you
  • Please address recent update

    By WesternPump
    Your new update makes the app crash when you delete pages out of a file. Have restarted the iPad numerous times. Otherwise a great product but please address this.
  • Great app but annotating is not its strength

    By Hahahahahevebrnwnsnr
    I bought this app cause of the integration with the desktop app which i love. But this is not nearly as good as the desktop app. As a student, i annotate on my pdfs often and every time i do, the text box just gets warped into a vertical line. Ive resorted to just using my stylus to hand write my notes, and if ineed to type, ill use notability as it seems to work the best for typing and handwriting my notes. Another issue ive noticed is this app tends to crash when opening slightly larger pdfs.. but ive noticed that in every single pdf app (iannotate, goodreader, notability and pdf expert). Overall, i think this is the best pdf reader if you arent typing too much, and mostly relying on the highlighting function for annotations. If you need to type and highlight, and can settle with a less professional appearing platform with less integration to the desktop pdf expert, use notability.
  • Good PDF App!

    By Really OpenMinded
    I use it daily at home & work. It organizes & saves my files, facilitates backups using cloud or iTunes. No app is perfect, but like good relationships it has a lot more positive qualities than negative.
  • Don't Buy or Update

    By RickDS_iPad
    This developer got so greedy by removing editing feature and forcing you to pay extra $10 on top of $10 when we first bought the app. We originally had the edit function. Your so-called new edit feature is not brand new feature. It's just superficially changed. Edit is just edit!
  • Good annotation tools; file management is a mess

    By Vulgar demos
    Mixed feelings about this app. Pros: - Good annotation tools. - Good wrist detection. - Don’t have to deal with Adobe - Mac handoff features work flawlessly. Cons: - inability to sort search results chronologically (unless you happen to be at the beginning of the document when you search). - document manager is a total mess. Extremely confusing integration with iCloud. I have no clue where anything is saved. iCloud isn’t in their cloud section, and “Documents” is in iCloud? No way to simply pin an iCloud folder to sidebar, apparently. Result is missing files and duplicates. I re-read so many documents simply because I lost track of them inside PDF Expert’s maze. - Using their Documents app only compounds bewildering mess. - If you open a document via Files app and close it momentarily, you’ll have to find it all over again (I.e. doesn’t offer quick way to open it up again. - Menu bar and tab bar (even when only one document is open) during annotation takes up a good 15% of vertical screen space. Would be nice to hide them (not just in reader view but also annotation view).

    Must have app
  • Great app

    By Meriadoc
    I love this app. It’s a great and intuitive way to store, organise, and read documents everywhere on your device. The only complaint I have is the absence of reading modes (night, sepia, etc. ) on the iphone app. I don’t understand why it’s nit there but great app nonetheless.
