Fast but unstable and lacking
Hands down the fastest PDF reader I have seen, flips pages instantly, no loading, no pausing, no waiting. Preview mode takes a while to load up, but seems to be stored forever once it does which is very nice. Interface takes a bit to figure out, there are no instructions, by default sorts in reverse alphabetical order by load batches which is odd. List view has no thumbnails or alphabet headers. Your place in a PDF is not retained between views unlike every other reader I have seen, which is a crime given it's saving the previews it builds. It does have bookmarking and searching, so it's not a total loss, just not as convenient, but there is notes in the bookmarks so lack of annotation tools isn't a total loss either. No tagging, so you can put files in folders, but not multi tag to organize. Allows file renaming. Unfortunately it's entirely unstable and crashes out constantly. In some cases, it decides it doesn't like part of a file and will always crash on that page so you can never view it. Same file works in other readers, so it's an app issue, and rather insulting given they list stability as a key feature.
Big issue with 2 page view
This app has the wonderful feature of being able to add PDFs via a URL. But the big issue that it suffers from is not having the ability to either scroll 2 page view one page at a time and/or set the "start page" in 2 page view. For example, anytime I want to read a periodical, magazine, instruction book or similar, the first page is generally the cover. In 2 page view, it sets the first page as the cover. This screw up viewing of an images, diagrams, etc that span a full spread.
Lacks minimum required features
1. No continuos vertical scrolling (when you add this, for the love of all that is good and holy please include horizontal scroll lock when zoomed - so irritating without this)
2. Zoom is lost on page flip (otherwise I might be able to live without #1 but I would hate to)
If you add #1 with horizontal scroll lock when zoomed you will have the best reader on the market (for reading at least, have not tried other features because I can't really use your app due to issue #2 above). Will upgrade rating when these are fixed.
