"QuickSearch PDF Reader is the tool you didn't realize you needed ... searches are extra fast but it's the interface design that shines ... a terrific app" -- The Unofficial Apple Weblog (

QuickSearch PDF Reader makes it fast and easy to find text in PDF documents. When you add a document, it is scanned in the background, so when you search, results are instant. And as well as searching within a document, you can search across all your documents at once.

It’s also a great PDF viewer with a very natural style of navigation. It snaps to page boundaries, yet it’s easy to flick past them. Zooming is straightforward by pinching, or you can double-tap a region of text to zoom to fit. You can easily jump to any part of the document using the scrub bar. And everything is lightning-fast, even on large documents.

You can easily get your documents into QuickSearch from other apps on your iPad or iPhone that support the "Open In..." function, such as Mail, Safari, or Dropbox. You can also use iTunes File Sharing to transfer documents to and from your Mac or PC. Full step-by-step instructions are included.

Blindingly 'QuickSearch' is The best PDF, search hands down

Family Doc 123

I wish my other 'Pro' app had as fast or as useful a search a search. When I need to find terms in a medical textbook of 2500+ pages, nothing beats QuickSearch. Not as full function yet but still indispensable. Thank you!

Right to left text direction


It’s a great app. But in right to left text direction in some language, it’s not work, actually you should search the word from end to beginning.

#1 PDF Reader for Large Documents


This is my first review for any app I have purchased on the App Store, and trust me: I have purchased A LOT!

I have tried a countless array of PDF readers, and this one is, by far, the most efficient app for reading and viewing large file PDFs. I have uploaded 1GB+ PDF documents, and with the app's "Search" function, you can search for any word in the file, and quickly locate each and every word. I have yet to find an app with such a simplistic interface, but yet, such an efficient function.

Another note: this is a great app for students who need to create large "Binder" PDF files in Acrobat on their desktops or laptops, and then upload the document for on-the-go studying.
