  • One of the few...

    By nbits
    of the many hundreds if not thousands of iOS apps I have paid for, in terms of time, money, and typically both, that I actually use on a regular basis. The main reasons for this are stability, existence and adequacy of documentation, the absence of a requirement to create a superfluous online account with the vendor, infrequency of paid updates and online purchases, and most importantly, simple usefulness. It is unfortunate that the vast majority of mobile applications available from Apple’s store satisfy mostly the opposite of these criteria: they are unstable, undocumented or poorly so or in a foreign language, require the user to create a “cloud” or other type of account with the vendor, simply to work with desktop documents, often as a way of extracting additional passive income while undermining user’s privacy, proliferate paid updates and online purchases, and in many cases are designed as toys for children. I applaud the producers of GoodReader for such a statistically improbable achievement!
  • Abandoned app

    By mpetruzz
    This app is consistently out of date. Any time Apple makes any updates to iOS this app languishes for months. For all the good reviews and publicity this app used to deserve you’d think the developer would care to keep it up to date. Now all we get are empty promises about new versions coming some day.
  • Update the Application with iPhone C

    By i7moodzy
    Please update the application to be compatible with iPhone X
  • Does not work with google drive

    By gabefair
    Buyer beware adding a google drive account will break the app
  • Still the best

    GoodReader is still the app I rely on most to use the iPad as a professional tool. Without GoodReader, I am not sure I could still consider the iPad as a very portable, almost full-strength computer. There are other very good apps which have become available since I found GoodReader many years ago, and more and more of them now perform one or another GoodReader function as well as or almost as well as GoodReader. But there is still nothing like GoodReader itself. Even if GoodReader never upgrades again, please do not become discontinued altogether. For one thing, I would not know how to organize and keep track of the tens of thousands of documents I now have on the iPad. I rely on GR for so much more as well. Thank you to the developers.

  • A Must-Have App

    By Obbay
    This was recommended to me by an engineer back in 2012 when I first started using an iPad for work. I use this every day for Work (construction documents, specifications, etc) one way it's very handy is when I am e-mailed documents, I will save them here temporarily do I can reference the documents whether or not I have a Wi-fi connection. I also use it for my personal work stuff (Resume and portfolio), reference material (codes and technical bulletins)- but I also use it for keeping track of my daughters college recruiting process, teams that I coach, subjects that I teach, I could go on... Also where I have it synced to Dropbox I'm always sure that everything is getting backed up! Whenever anyone asks me what is the most important App to have, I always tell them Goodreader!
  • Great for smoooooth-reading

    By Genknit
    I have used GoodReader since 1995. I finally updated to the latest version. It has a lot more capability than I use, but for reading .txt files it is excellent. When smooth-reading, I need to be able to mark up the file if I find typos, scannos, or other problems. I can do that very easily with GoodReader. The inly problem I have with the app is my problem, not theirs. We don’t use icloud to store our stuff or to communicate between our ipads and the big computer. To reiterate, this is not GoodReader’s problem, it’s mine. And in the Grand Scheme of Things, it is a minor problem. I will give GoodReader four stars, because nothing is perfect. ^_^ (You can smooth-read too, just go to Distributed Proofreaders and help us make ebooks for Project Gutenberg.)
