One of my Top Apps
Goodreader has capabilities far beyond what I use it for, such as splitting and merging PDFs. Where I find it most useful is as a library where I can keep my documents that I want to read in a folder structure. That might be interesting documents downloaded from the Web or my magazine subscriptions, or user manuals for devices that I own, or PDF books. The list goes on. The recent implementation of split view has added massively to the app, allowing me to read passages from one document whilst writing a review in a different app. The app has a nice tidy interface and I can't recommend it enough. There is also a Mac app, GoodReaderUSB that allows you to drop documents into GoodReader on the iPad from your Mac. Very useful.
Goodness, but this app is utterly fantastic. I simply cannot think of a single feature that it's missing. I've deleted every other PDF reader from my iPad, and use this all the time. It's powerful, it's swift, it's perfect for scribbling over documents, inserting digital text, arrows, boxes, pictures, anything! The sharing options are fantastic too. Quite honestly, I don't know how I ever managed to use an iPad prior to downloading GoodReader — it's been that useful to me. Paying for an app these days can feel risky given the excess of shoddy stuff out there, but I'd happily have paid twice over for this one. If you need to read, markup, and work with PDFs, then don't hesitate. GoodReader is sublime.
Absolutely excellent App. Can't believe it's free
After a ridiculous amount of time and frustration, I researched how to send multiple PDF's in an email and all answers directed me to GoodReader. Very easy to use. Integrates with the phones software perfectly and does exactly what I needed it for and more. I would have happily paid for this App and can't believe there are no IAP's (that I've seen so far) Definitely download this App. I feel like I'm creating more PDF's just so I can use them in GoodReader. Well done developers. A refreshing change
