Needs ability to remove app header/footer (or better yet give true dark mode)

I use this app to read books in PDF format.

Using dark mode on OLED screens is a great way to conserve energy, since individual pixels can be powered on/off (i.e., black pixels require no power).

Neither the pro nor non-pro version support iOS dark mode. However, I can achieve it with a bit of a hack in the non-pro version. Invert the colors under accessibility options, open the PDF, and double click on the text to remove the app header. At that point, all that is visible is the text in white.

But you cannot double click to remove the header/footer in the new pro version. So I will unfortunately have to continue to use the old version if I want to save my battery.

Bought the perpetual license, doesn’t work

I bought Pro Perpetual license so I could export images from my PDFs to mark up and so I could sign paperwork.

The UI is a mess, it took me some time to find the sign option on desktop and when I put the app on my iPad it wouldn’t carry over my license. You sign in with your Wondershare ID in the app, but on the desktop app it just uses your Apple ID. I tried everything to get access on iPad. Connected my Apple ID to my Wondershare account, (there’s no option to restore purchase) tried to enter the order number I got, tried to recover the receipt on Wondershare via all my A ID connected emails, to no avail.

I also tried signing on desktop and it wouldn’t let me sign paperwork. I’d rather take screenshots than us a product that doesn’t work.

I filed a case with Apple to get my money returned.

I’m compromising giving 3 Stars. I paid $9.99 for a “Pro” upgrade. Seems nice, but not all my files migrated to the new version and those that did lost their formatting. What do you think this app should be rated?
