    Not the same buggy pdf expert anymore. It developed in certain areas and improved well.

  • Good, but missing a few things

    By CharlesEdwards_III
    I’ve been using an iPad since the early generations, and the killer app has always been whichever PDF app is the best. At one point that best app was iAnnotate, however; once it was bought out by Branchfire, they completely stopped innovating for over 2 years straight. What had made that app great was the original dev team and its responsiveness to the community. Alas, I’ve now moved to what I consider the best app: PDF Expert. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this app has implemented many features that I would consider critical for a modern day PDF app, to include the Sepia tone viewing option for documents. With this being stated, I feel some things are missing. First, the ability to take a screenshot selection. This is a critical feature. Being able to select part of a page and save to camera roll or to the clipboard is a must-have feature for an app such as this. Second, I think the highlighters should have multiple options just like the pens. Being able to quick select between your favorite three colors of highlighters is as common as picking between multiple pen colors. Third, I don’t think you should show file types that you cannot open. It feels bad to be told to use another app to open something. If all you can deal with are PDFs, then just sync the PDFs. It’s called “*PDF* Expert.” People will understand. Fourth, it should be easier to delete a highlight, underline, or strikethrough annotation. As of now, one has to scroll all the way to the specific annotation in the “Annotations” tab and find the right page when the entire time they knew where the annotation was. It was by their thumb. They just couldn’t delete it. Something like a Long Press on an annotation should allow for the options for it to be deleted. Or it should at least take you to the “Annotations” tab for you to delete it there. The latter solution is clunky, but could account for the corner case where someone has happened to highlight, underline, and strikethrough a selection of text, which is possible, however improbable it may be. Other options include a swipe on the annotation or some sort of multi-touch gesture like two-finger swipe. Finally, the color tagging implementation could be fleshed out. What every PDF app so far has done is add their own custom tagging that stays internal to the app. This isn’t very useful. The better way to do tags is to implement them in a way that makes the experience between the app and the Mac seamless. In other words, macOS already embeds tags in the PDF metadata. If you were to read those tags and allow the user to write those tags from within the app, this feature would be much more robust. Example: We have a cookbook called “Awesome Book of Flavor.” It has the tags: [Green], [Cookbook], [Vegetarian]. We have another cookbook called “Heavy Metal Lobsters.” It has the tags: [Blue], [Cookbook], [Seafood]. If the user were to add these tags on their Mac and sync these documents to PDF Expert, then that tag data would be available to PDF Expert. The user would then search for [Cookbook] in PDF Expert and get both of these books from the search. But the user could also add from within the app the tag [Music] to the “Heavy Metal Lobsters” book. Not only would the user be able to search for [Music] within the app, but since that would be written to metadata, then on sync, the [Music] tag would be available for search on the Mac (as well as in Apple’s new “Files” app). Thus the “Heavy Metal Lobsters” book would have the following tags ready to sync back to the Mac: [Blue], [Cookbook], [Seafood], [Music]. Such integration would make going between this app and the Mac a more seamless experience and make your app feel like a natural extension of macOS, which is good for you and for the users. Everyone wins. Semantic organization of information is the future and seemingly small steps like this are more impactful than they seem.
  • Crashing with larger files

    By ama_1
    Consistent crashing on iOS 11 with larger PDFs. This used to happen on iOS 10 but not as much as 11. Please fix! It’s not usable anymore.
  • Doesn't work!

    By sal206
    I can't freaken edit any form I've downloaded. Apple already has a PDF reader in the bottom of the email that lets you edit for free. Waist of my money!
  • Works Well

    By AzJetStar
    The app works very well. I use it a lot for real estate transactions and getting signatures. Saves a much valuable resource.... Paper.
