Best PDF viewer available on iPad


It would be a great hardship for me to be without PDF Markup. And it keeps on getting better!

I continue to learn PDF Markup's new tools. Recently, I began using a monthly Bible Lesson resource. Each month the PDF is almost 100 pages. The table of contents shows the lesson title and page number for each Sunday's lesson but there is no link to jump to the page. I discovered that in PDF Markup I can easily add a link in the table of contents to the page of each lesson.

I use PDF Markup every Sunday to present my Bible Class lesson. Every font and jpg are preserved from the MS Word file so there are no surprises on the big projector screen. Creating a link in PDF Markup is also useful to quickly jump to an image out of sequence.

In preparation for a final exam I listened to PDF Markup speak (pound) the review material into my head from my iPhone as I exercised. I made an A on the exam!

Turn off Notifications once Tapped on!

Great app, but notifications are quite annoying. The red # indicator within the app should disappear once I've viewed it! Instead it stays on until I actually visit a website I have no time to enjoy or set push notifications on, which I will not do.

App itself is easy to use, mostly intuitive, and has many features of the brand-name product that is used on personal computers. Have used it for years and just gets better. (Aside from those pesky notifications).

Override the brightness setting on the phone


I love this app and use it daily for my documents; however, i noticed it overrides the brightness setting on the phone.
Once I open the app, the phone brightness will not adjusts to match the environment lighting changes anymore.
Also, after the latest update, opening folders are slower, it takes around 2 seconds to show the file in the folder. It used to be instant.
