User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.

I can’t believe this app!!!!!!! When my friend first recommended it to me, I almost dismissed it, as the app is free and because I’ve never came across any reader app that is even reasonably good and free at the same time. But when I, doubtably, installed and started using it, THIS APP BLOWS MY MIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First and foremost, and I’ve been searched for an app with this feature on iPad FOREVER — direct access to my PDFs from the iCloud Drive without copying them into the app and the synchronization of my annotation to the original files, AND I’VE FINALLY FOUND IT HERE!!!!! ON A FREE APP!!!!! WHAAAAAAT???????!!!!!!!! Although its paid competitor also have this feature but it’s hidden deep and clearly you are not encouraged to open PDF directly from iCloud Drive, but in this app, the first I see is a browser interface for iCloud files, AMAZING!!!!! And the annotating experience is just so natural and intuitive: the animation for applying highlight is just sublime, and adding a note or comment is just buttery smooth. I am simply not gonna use another app for my PDFs on iPad henceforth. And honestly I’ve never expected to find the perfect PDF reader to be a FREE APP!!!!!!!! Thank you developers for such an amazing experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

Let me say this, I have to use PDFs daily for my job. We were recently using Adobe to edit and upload PDF documents for our customers, but Adobe has a major glitch which would delete all information inputted into the forms which were gone and lost for ever; yes 4 hours of inputting data on 13 pages, gone just like that. Adobe took a long time to update and fix this issue which our company decided to delete from all our iPads and use a different program. I found this program and it is amazing. The flow of the documents the uploading information just perfect. If i ran into a issue customer support would respond right away with a fix or a resolution. GREAT PROGRAM!!

The reason I gave this app one star is because how it handles app switching on iPad Pro. When annotating a PDF file in this app, I cannot safely switch to a different app. If I ever try to use the screen bottom app switcher, inevitably, I will touch the page slider bar at the bottom of this app. Then the page I'm viewing will inevitably jump to other pages. This design flaw is so annoying. I have to stop using this app and go back to PDF expert for better user experience. I will update this review to 3 stars if the developers fix the design flaw I mentioned above. (Update: It's fixed now. So the review is updatedto 3 stars as I promised.) And BTW, the line drawing function in PDF expert is far more superior than this app: Lines in PDF expert will automatically align to horizontal or vertical direction. And the lines will even align to themselves. These whole bunch of features are missing in this app. Yet this app charges us yearly? Broken deal. I will update the score to 4 if this app charge once, and offers the same experience and functionality as PDF expert. And update it to 5 if this app has the same wonderful Mac OS version as PDF expert. Till then, this app is overpriced and sub-functional.

Wow! First your response time to any issue is reliable and fast. I had some questions on an older version and you helped resolve them. BTW— the problem was me. Sincere thanks for not making me feel “non-savvy.” I am totally impressed with your product and every update make a useful product better! My husband watches me use it and now he wants to use it for his work as a physicist. It is convenient for research documents as well as I gotta run and don’t have time to read this article. There a tons of reasons to use this app that maybe I wouldn’t use, but could. Totally happy and impressed.

The two main features that are a boon to my productivity are: [1] the app opens right to the iCloud drive selection screen, and [2] highlighting, shape drawing, and pen drawing tools are all accessible 1 tap away from each other. Both of these are the most important features to me and allow me to be more productive than using PDF Expert (that is not to say that isn't an amazing app as well, only that PDF Viewer suits my use case much better which is scientific/academic where I just want to read, highlight, and annotate papers and PDF images quickly).
