Great company

Another fantastic app and software from Wondershare! This app is a very clean and user friendly pdf reader that allows editing and annotations! Exactly what I needed! More importantly is the way Wondershare treats it user! I have many of their products and I have been so impressed. If a user needs help they have supports in place to help. They believe in their products unconditionally and will actually speak or chat with you to problem solve. In addition they want their product to work for the user! They even requested the document I was having trouble with and worked with me and truly listened to what I needed. They do not just ask what you would like the software to do, they actually do their very best to add the option to the next update! Wondershare is a company that remembers that technology should make people’s life easier and they work to keep you a user to their work.

No Compatibility and Glitchy!

I was so excited to find this PDF editor for my iPad because I do a lot of writing and editing PDFs and documents. While at first I was impressed with the features, once I saved my edited document and opened it using Preview on my Mac, it was clear it was not compatible and none of the features I had added or edited in PDF element showed up properly. What a waste of time! I thought it might be better to check in the desktop version of PDF element, so I downloaded the free trial version. Yet, the document and edits still didn’t display properly. When I re-opened the document in PDF element on my iPad and re-saved it, it corrupted the file. Now I can’t open the document in Preview on my Mac, or in PDF element on my iPad, or in any other app. Downloading this app and using it to edit my PDFs was a waste of time and I’m going to delete it as soon as I write this review. Do yourself a favor and look somewhere else for a decent PDF and document editor.

It would be perfect if it hadn’t these bugs!

When i installed this app I was just like woooow! it’s exactly what I was looking for. But then two issues disappointed me a bit:
First_ when I wanted to mark or underline the words in a pdf format article, the app recognized the watermark in the background of article pages too, so it was going to mark whole the paragraph which was overlapping with the watermark.
Second_ the performance of pencil tool in app wasn’t satisfying at all. I’ve got an apple pencil and when I wanted two write something down I must put pencil so vertical on my ipad screen otherwise it wouldn’t work. And it also couldn't write dots just by touching pencil to screen, I had to draw the dots like a circle.
Please fix these issues because this is the best annotating app I’ve ever seen and it really deserves to be the best one. Thank you so much
