Excellent App

Liquidtext is excellent and for sure deserves 5 star but I give 4 star because I expected better ink functionality in pro version. The handwriting options needs to have more advanced features. For example, some times the eraser is glitchy. Also, one should be able to select handwriting and resize or move it around. With 10$ price for pro option, I wish you make ink better and enrich the handwriting options in the future versions.

Great app gets better with each release

This is—by far—one of my favorite apps on the app store today. If you spend lots of time reading and commenting on written material, LiquidText will be an eye opener.

This new version adds sophisticated inking support: you can not only take notes, but draw links between snippets and the main text of the body. These links are "recognized" by the application and become live, clickable hyperlinks.

I really think that the addition of inking was the only missing piece for this (already incredible) tool... with Apple Pencil support LiquidText can become your full document annotation, organization, reading tool.

The app store is full of various document viewers and PDF readers, but none of them approach what LiquidText does. The ability to “pull out” excerpts into a workspace with a gesture, and organize to your liking, is a huge advantage over competing apps. Excerpts retain a link back to the original document, so you can just tap them to view them in context back in the original document. Mind blowing: tap multiple excerpts at the same time and the document collapses to see both in context. The ability to pinch and collapse documents just to see relevant parts is a huge innovation for anyone who works regularly with lots of information.

LiquidText takes advantage of multitouch on the iPad and uses it in ways we’ve never seen any other application do. It’ll be invaluable for students, lawyers, or anyone else who needs to read, annotate, and critically understand printed material. I’m an academic and I use it regularly. The fact that it integrates so easily with Dropbox, iCloud, and other storage providers is a huge bonus as well.

Highly recommended. Check it out!
