Some GoodReader features, like signing PDF documents with just three taps, are so convenient that people use them even when their laptop or desktop computer is around.
GoodReader earned its accolades by the way it handles huge PDF and TXT files, manuals, large books, magazines, and renderings of 100 mb and more with great speed. Its refined file manager lets you manage local files and email attachments on your iPhone/iPad allowing you to work from anywhere.
The ability to mark-up PDFs opens up new doors to GoodReader users who can now use typewriter text boxes, sticky notes, lines, arrows, and freehand drawings on top of a PDF file. You can also easily sign any PDF document with our app.

Ratings and Reviews
Stop promising a huge update
Great app, but I’d recommend downloading and using an app like Documents which maintains their product rather than promising to do so. Stop talking about some huge update for well over 1 year.
I’ve been waiting for this update so long guys, and I’m not getting a warm fuzzy feeling that it’ll happen this year! Really what’s going on! Love the app but, this hype about the super update is getting old!!!
Good Job, but...
Solid product. No major complaints. Very stable and well organized. Lots of good capability to connect to various file server types (SMB, IMAP, Google Drive, etc.). And it can do a lot of cool stuff with PDF — I use it to overlay all kind of notes, insertions, drawings, ... on PDF files. I would (and do!) recommend as a good general purpose tool. I use it daily and have for a couple years.
One nitpick — it’s attempt to render PPT is very often flawed, but I have to believe that PPT is probably horribly complex, and completely (publicly) undocumented so I don’t really hold that much against the app. I generally save my PPT as PDF and then transfer them to GoodReader, thus avoiding this problem.
I would like to suggest one addition - if I could write text files in Markdown format and have them rendered as such it would greatly increase my ability to use this for other types of documents, especially notes.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
