OUTSTANDING

I have had this app on my iPad for several years now and would be lost without it! I use it primarily for knitting--as a collection place for my many patterns. It is particularly useful when I am knitting from a CHART. I place lines, vertically, that are the same color as my stitch markers about every 5-10 stitches and then create a horizontal line to move up or down in the direction that the pattern is to be read. If needed you can make notes to yourself about where you left off either in the line or a message bubble on how you did something a little bit different. I recently created a lace shawl that I would have never been able to create without it. Another thing I like about GoodReader is that you can access your stored patterns even if you are away from internet access. Being able to organize patterns by creating folders and mark patterns with different colored star--those patterns that you want to create for some little person soon or the Fair next summer. There are so many pieces to this app, that I am sure I don't use them all, but absolutely love what I have found. Even though one can only give 5 stars, I'd give 10 if I could. Amazing app❣

An Essential Tool

Goodreader hasn't been updated in over a year now. There are os integration options which I hope the dev gets around to tweaking. This single app makes my entire tablet worthwhile for me. So I certainly hope it hasn't been abandoned. It is still a very well tuned program, and utterly indispensable. But with Apple always pulling rugs when they upgrade the iOS, it makes me nervous not to see occasional updates. I wish Goodreader would be more transparent with its iCloud integration. The PDF authoring options could use some review, too. All in all, I honestly don't know what I'd do without this app.

Original review:

I honestly don't think I would use a tablet very much without Goodreader. How are we supposed to actually store things without some sort of filing system? Goodreader is a premier solution to the deficits of information appliances, literally the most important app on my tablet.

There are quibbles. I wish there were less pop up notices whenever I download. I wish the browser had a few more features, such as bookmarks. There really ought to be a bulk rename function. And I wonder why the reader doesn't support ePub and other evoke formats. I likewise watch the months since the last update, worrying for the future maintenance of this app.

But as a reader and a writer, Goodreader truly is the best solution available for my needs.

Best thing since sliced bread!

I've been using GoodReeder for some years now since I was first introduced to it. So useful with filing, saving, organizing, managing and reading my lyrics, instrument and equipment manuals etc. My one improvement I would like to see which I asked for in the older version sometime ago is to have an alphabetical tab & index option for my lyrics so that...for example all song lyrics that start with an "A", "B", "C" etc will have a tab and index for the songs in that alphabet. Right now I have to scroll through if I'm needing a lyric that starts with "S" and if I'm at the beginning of the alphabet it seems like forever if you have a lot of files and in the middle of a set or song.

Also we're limited to seven files at a time to view and if I'm doing a long night it would be more convenient to expand that or be able to set up a setlist or playlist (any suggestions?).
