Ratings and Reviews
Great mobile PDF app
I use PhantomPDF on desktop, and this is a great extension of that software. It does a lot, but really nails the core functionality of mobile PDF software. My only gripe is the lack of ability to directly with Dropbox and Box. Although you can open your files in those services through Foxit’s cloud functionality, I really prefer to access my documents through my cloud providers’ native apps. Adobe does a great job of integrating with these two services, allowing me to open files from the cloud apps directly into Adobe and then automatically save changes back. Unfortunately, Foxit beats Adobe in every other aspect, so I have no app that does both well.
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.
Lost Basic features unless I subscribe
Well, I loved this app until today. Now many free features require a subscription. Its $11 a year. I did not get advanced notice and now can’t use this app. I can understand some features being moved to a paid feature, but now I can’t even open a pdf from my email without subscribing to the annual fee. If they offered a one time price for the app I’d consider it. Now I do not know what value the free app has.
Also, to add insult to injury, I deleted the program to reinstall thinking there may have been a problem, and I lost all my documents in memory.
Foxit let me down. Very disappointed since I now have to recreate my files.
I just purchased GoodReader for $4.99. So far it does everything that my old Foxit PDF Reader FREE did and more. With GoodReader I can delete pages in a pdf that are not necessary. It has all the editing functions. It is a slight challenge to navigate but with so many features it still is intuitive. I’ve only had it a few hours but it seems better than paying an $11 annual fee.
