Customer Reviews

Works great and is exactly what I was looking for!

Works great and is exactly what I was looking for! I’m a student and use a lot of large textbook pdfs. Some of the pdfs don’t have a table of contents and it makes jumping around the textbook a time consuming endeavor as I must scroll through hundreds of pages at a time. Preview doesn’t have table of contents editing capabilities, and Adobe’s full software is quite expensive. For $3 dollars I’m able to make tables of contents and save myself from scrolling. Great app, would recomend.

Crashing problem has not fixed.

I read a review mentioning a crashing problem when opening a pdf file. I thought it was fixed because a recent review says this is good, but it is not.
Don’t be fooled by the good review. It is hard to get the refund (You won’t get refund by app store but you need to contanct the app company. I am still waiting for their response).
DO NOT BUY THIS APP, or you will get mad.
