Great setup, but it doesn’t work and I lose all my notes

I use this for active editing in class (I’m in med school and have class mostly 9-5). I write a LOT of notes so I updated to Pro (it won’t let me write a review for the pro and I don’t know why).

This app started as a great resource, but now it has been slowly devovling.
This app started crashing and I lost all the notes I didn’t save. Now when it crashes I lose all notes, even the ones I saved from before. I am so frustrated that I want to throw my computer against the wall and erase all memory of having this app. Thanks for helping me lose hours of work. I have to get back to re-writing all my annotations now.

-It’s easy to write, draw, circle, and highlight.
-It’s easy to use the app as a means to organize and open all your PDFs.

-Sometimes there is Lag in the GUI that stays on the screen until you overlap it with another GUI
-It crashes. An absurd amount.
-I lost all my work.
-Even though I purchased the Pro, it says I have the Free Edition

If the theory of the app was not so great, I would give it a 1/5. The app functionality is a 0/5, but the awesome theory is great.
I wish I could get my money back.

Almost there

I like this app, it small, clean and multi-tabs. As a replacement of MacOS’s Preview, I hope there are some more enhancement on PDFs operations, such as split and combination. I also encountered the **update** issue, could the authors release the package on your own site? Each time App Store will remind me to update, but I don’t want to do that and don’t want to see the little red tagger on the icon.
What’s more, I really hope the authors could add an option to change the background color of the view, cause most of us need to read a long time on the screen.
Good job.

Pretty Good

I would consider buying it if I did not read so many reviews about bugs and they had released and Update since for Yosemite. Since the last update was May 2014 it obviously has not been optimized for Yosemite and probably the reason it is buggy. If they want you to pay 15$ then they have to expect to support the product and no updates in 9 months does not cut it.
