Favorite PDF app of mine


This app is amazing for students, I have all of my books on here. This saves time and my back (Having Engineering courses most of the books are extremely heavy).

The highlighter function works flawlessly as well as the mark up and search functions built in. My only area of improvement would be to have the mark up function a little more “smooth” as it lags a little bit and is a little on the “blocky” side. This is my reason for the 4 stars. I do have the free version though.

All said and done this is highly recommended.

Perfect for iPad


I was previously using SideBooks for two-page PDF viewing, but once I found out about this app, I almost completely ditched SideBooks. I’m using an Air 2 and it’s pretty snappy, changing between PDF’s can be a little slow (I’m sure this is because of the old hardware) and it’s not possible to view two PDFs simultaneously (almost entirely an iOS limitation, so still use SideBooks for that. Other than that this app has been fantastic for me, and I hope for continued support in the future.

Best PDF reader out there


Great app, it truly has many of the functions one could want without the need for an expensive upgrade.

My only complain is the "reflow mode" and the inability to highlight/open notes while on it. As an english learner, I'm usually highlighting and translating words on the books I read and it is very difficult to do that while on standard mode because of how small letters are. Reflow "reader mode" is amazing but it lacks the taking notes function. Very frustrating
