Other things PDF Expert lets you do:

PDF Expert has one of the best PDF viewers for the iPad. It opens large files, supports full text search, handles PDF links and outlines, opens password-protected documents and extracts text from PDFs.
+ Copy Files From Mac or PC via Wi-Fi and USB
Use iTunes file sharing to transfer files directly to your iPad via USB cable. As an alternative connect your iPad running PDF Expert via Wi-Fi and operate it like a wireless flash drive. No additional software is required.
+ Save Email Attachments
Open attachments directly from the Mail app. Also, you can open PDF files from any other application on the iPad via "Open In..." dialogue.
+ Edit Documents on a variety of storages
PDF Expert allows you to download and upload files from Dropbox, Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive and other services. If you use more than one cloud storage, PDF Expert will handle all of them.
+ Share Files With Your Friends
Email files directly from PDF Expert with all annotations preserved.
+ Protect Documents with Password and Encryption
Restrict access to PDF Expert with a password to protect your files from unauthorized reading. Enable iOS Data Protection to encrypt everything while iPad is not in use.
+ Text To Speech
Now you can listen to e-books or audio files on the road or when you don’t feel like reading. PDF Expert 5 intelligently processes PDF books and uses iOS7 text- to-speech API to read them aloud.
And one more thing:
• Review Mode •
The Review Mode allows you to markup PDF documents in a very special way. Just tap anywhere on the text where you need changes and correct it in the text editor. The text that you delete is marked as removed while everything you add is shown as new text in different colors.
All your modifications are standard PDF annotations that do not affect text in the PDF itself, which is very important.
NOTE 1: Please note that Dynamic XML PDF Forms made with Adobe LiveCycle should be converted to Static PDF Forms format before filling out in PDF Expert.

What's New in Version 5.0.5
- Bug fixes and stability improvements
Amazing!!! (PDF annotation & file manager)
I love this. It does so much better than other annotation programs. Best examples:
-search all documents at once
-5 tabs of documents open at once
-insert pages, etc
-keeps all annotations in the pdf format
-File manager and sync is flawless
-I compare it to my friends who use iAnnotate and Notability and this app always comes out on top whenever we compare features and ease of use.
-would be great if it could convert other documents to pdf. Without this function, I have to take the extra step to convert all my documents to pdf in other programs before I can annotate them (you can view any document inside PDF Expert, but annotation is only available for pdf's) Still, it is so well done that I give 5 stars.
Very nice app
Excellent program. Very smooth viewing of PDFs, quick response, no jitter or lag. Includes a nice file manager as well, intuitive, easy to use. Very good support of network sources. I set up a WebDAV server on my desktop and the app saw it right away and could use it with no further setup. Also includes the normal roster of network services:Box, iCloud, Dropbox, and several more. I'm just getting into the annotations the app provides. They seem powerful, but can be a little testy at first as it's difficult to get them placed exactly where I want them. Overall highly recommend.
I would love to give a higher rating, but after upgrading to this version form version 4 it doesn't save the index for searching by content. I use this app to manage service order forms as a field technician and to get signatures. Sometimes I need to look things up by customer name or address and this is no longer a workable option since it starts every search from scratch and I have over 1400 PDFs saved. This was not a problem with the PDF Expert version 4 where it took a few seconds at most compared to the more than one hour search it takes now since it saves no index. I did set it to index in the settings. It's not a matter of not knowing the app. I have years of experience using their products.
