no other like PDF Reader Pro Edition!


If you are a hardcore PDF user like me I recommend this app.
It has more features than any other PDF reader I tried (even desktop versions).
The function that caught my attention is the distance and local collaboration, with these 2 options you can collaborate with another person in REAL TIME, sharing your notes and annotations and it even has a chat option that allows you to share any additional information while you are sharing your annotations.
If you are using the same wifi as the other person I recommend using the local collaboration, but if you are in different locations the distance collaboration is the one you need.
Before I started using this feature for work we tried it several times and it really works in real time.
Overall I have to say that I’m extremely satisfied with this app (and my coworkers too).
Definitely 5 out of 5 stars.
Now I beg you to keep regularly updating this app with more great features like you have been doing for the past few years

Does ok after figure it out


Their support team answered quickly, but took me a while to figure out how to get pdf’s out of email to the app. The app needs to make these directions clear when you buy it and it does not. I bought two other unnecessary purchases I thought I needed to make it work before I got the email showing me how it’s done. It’s easy , so why you don’t get these simple instructions in the how to, is beyond me. That’s why 4 instead of 5 stars. It should have in the “how to” and isn’t even mentioned except in the selling it info. But it does do it. Hurray and thank you to the app team.

I have been using the app for a couple of years.


I h I wish I could crop PDF files and have the pages change by scrolling down or up instead of left or right.
The instructions on how to print were not great. The icons were too small and the print symbol is minute. The support pdf is not great. It did not show the process.

When finished managing a file by changing its name or emailing etc, I have to quit the app in order to get back to reading the PDF files.
