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❣
Needs a more streamlined highlighting experience
Two main suggestions:
1. Highlighting. I commonly use different highlighter colors to signify different things, thus am switching colors frequently. The way it works with the current version, changing colors causes everything I just highlighted prior to saving to change to that new color. Thus my options are to save, reopen highlighter tool, change color, highlight, then save again. The alternative is to save and then go back and click on which sections I want to be a different color, which can be hard to keep track of when highlighting a lot. Basically I'm asking that when highlighting we can change the color without having to close the tool or change all the previous highlights.
2. Syncing. Please have the app sync smallest files first. I have a few large documents that don't need to be synced as frequently but get in the way of adding new small documents that I need more immediately.
Great app overall though!
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?).
