What's New in Version 5.3.2
- stability and performance improvements
Leaving the Paper Docs Behind!
I really like this app because it goes way beyond being just a .pdf reader. I was looking for something to easily open and annotate / highlight important documents while mobile. I used this at a trade show recently and it did the job very well and was easy to learn and use. No more making notes on paper documents (show schedules, floor maps, etc.) and stuffing them in my pockets and then misplacing them. It was all just available to me on my phone and tablet. Very well laid out and organized. I am very happy. So happy I plan to try the printer and scanner products by this company as well.
PS: If you have documents on your desktop computer you want to carry with you but they are not in .pdf form, you can make a .pdf by "printing" them to Nitro Pro or similar software on the desktop - works very well - especially for web docs. Also some word processors and browsers will create .pdf's of your documents as well. Just send them in an email attachment to yourself, open on your phone or tablet with the PDF Expert app and you are all set. I really love being able to leave the paper docs at home, but still be able to highlight and annotate.
Bottom line . . . PDF Expert gets a 5 star yea! from me.
Forced paid upgrade
I've been using PDF expert 4 for a while now, and thought it was great. Then I upgraded to IOS 8, and it pretty much stopped working. Navigating became a sloppy mess, and I could no longer access many of my documents. I learned this is because of the release of pdf expert 5, but it irks me that 4 was made unusable and I would now have to pay for another app.
But PDF expert was great, and when I saw on readdle's website that my PDF expert 4 files would automatically move to the new version, I figured this would be a good purchase to make. Nope, my files were not moved over as promised, and on the PDF expert guide, it says the only way to move the files over is to open them in PDF expert 5 from the old app, but I can no longer even access the files using the old one. They broke the old app to force me to get the new one, and now I've lost a lot of the PDF files I had, with important notes to my work. This really screwed me over, so despite the cool features of the app, I cannot recommend using it in case they pull a stunt like this again, look for another app which is more stable and trustworthy.
A caveat to 5⭐️
This PDF App has all the others I've tried beat, hands down! Since I own the desktop Acrobat Pro version, I wanted something pretty robust for mobile. Readdle has done a nice job of integrating popular functions such as highlighting and notating; very useful for research, study or work collaborations.
My only caveat was the forced upgrade that others have pointed out. While I was able to migrate data without too much effort, I felt existing customers could have been offered 'upgrade pricing.' Even without it, I found that the app was too useful not to keep and upgrade. Prior to the next iteration, however, Readdle needs to understand the value of retaining their loyal fan base and employ some mitigating factors.
