Misunderstandings about pdf-notes:
- Not only pdf-notes but every app recently updated is removed from the open-in menu because iOS5 or formers currently show only 10 apps in open-in menu.
- iPad/iphone Mail/iBooks can't display PDF annotations so that please open it in the other pdf apps.

Ratings and Reviews
Bug still not addressed : UPDATED
UPDATED REVIEW: I ended up trying to install the free version to see if that worked. I ran into the same issue as with the paid version so I uninstalled the free version. The very next time I launched the paid version, it worked. Perhaps an update for the paid version was stalled or something and the installation of the free version somehow cleared that. At any rate, the app now works again and upgrading to five stars because it’s not clear whether or not the issue has to do with the app itself and I’m otherwise very happy with it. Also, tech support did reach out to me fairly quickly with an alternative solution, which I ended up not being able to try.
I have had the paid version for several years now and have been pretty consistently happy with the app and it’s improvements. However, since the two updates ago, I’ve been unable to launch the app at all. The launch graphic shows up on the iPad screen and then it simply shrinks to the background. It continues to run in the background, but it will not expand to full screen and is completely unusable as it is. There have been two updates since the problem arose, both for “bug fixes”, but the problem remains. What gives?

Best app to read pdf books!
I've tried many pdf apps to read pdf files of old books I download from Google Books (usually printed before 1900) and this app is the best! Many of those old books used very small print and I enlarge the pages to make them easier to read. PDF Notes allows me to instantly move around the enlarged pages without the highly annoying lag and temporary blurriness of other apps. I can also easily download books from Dropbox and Google Drive.
My only request would be to allow selection of which page to show on the shelves. Google Books all have the same first page so all my books look the same. I'd love to pick which image to use. I understand I can change the color of the icon, but I'd much rather have the actual book cover, which means selecting a different page than the first one.

Thank you very much for your nice review.
You can change any book icon color with its title so that please use it if possible. (for more information, please refer to the page 39 of the user guide)
Best app, wish it supported split screen
This has been my favorite app for many years, I have all my books and worksheets on it, I love the shelf formats for arranging my books, and I love the pen feature to add on my Notes. Now using the new iPad I feel disappointed that the split screen feature is not supported, that and the pen is the main reason I got the new iPad, I really hope you add the split function in the next update

10 years ago, pdf-notes had been developed for iOS 3.0 so that there have been some difficulties to adapt new technologies for newer iOS versions. We had to face some difficult works like converting from 32 bit engine to 64 bit, and failed to adapt some new technologies including split views, etc.
Therefore, we have developed PDF Notes S to adapt new technologies of recent iOS versions to the existing pdf-notes technologies; now it supports 2 pages viewer, split views, fast page turning and quick zoom, etc.
Please check Settings - Cross License.- PDF Notes S menu.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
