Ratings and Reviews

Needs Apple Pencil Support & Annotations


I don't mind having to use a special reader for DRM protected PDF works. But at least give us some of the same features found in other PDF readers to make the experience more enjoyable.

1. Look at the kindle reader app and the way they handle A) Highlighting -- Tap drag automatically highlights AND then gives you color choices and B) Page Turn animations.

2. Look at how PDF expert handles annotations. Having an iPad Pro, with an Apple Pencil makes you want to write your own handwritten notes in the textbooks and documents you are reading. Multiple colors and pen sizes (down to .5) for fine printing as well.

3. Cloud syncing of annotations and highlights.

4. Look at Kindle for the option for "Popular highlights", so you can get a feel for what others, who also bought the book, are highlighting. Helps make study even quicker.

All in all, I tried a few of the other DRM supported iOS readers, and they aren't much better. They all seem to punish readers that buy their books. Give us the features we love in other readers and you'll likely sell more DRM books, IMHO.


Poor User Design

Worst app in recent memory...

Besides being slow and clunky, Search doesn't work properly. In the FAR/AIM book, a Search for GPS turns up one, yes one reference, instead of the many that are in the book. This app is so unnecessary...they should just sell you the .pdf and and let you use it with a regular reader. Zero stars.

No annotations


A study guide without annotations is practically useless.
