First released in 2009, GoodReader® marks its 10-year anniversary with a better-than-ever major upgrade, GoodReader 5.
It's not easy to outperform ourselves after 10 years of delivering wonderful updates with extraordinary new features, but we did it! Again!
Already top in its class, and everybody's favorite go-to tool, GoodReader just got significantly better.
GoodReader is a perfect combination of document-reading and file-managing capabilities. It's your one-stop shop for all your document needs when you're on the go with your iOS device.
Use the app once, and you'll be hooked. Soon you'll be wondering how you ever managed to work without it.
-= File Reading =-
PDF, TXT, MS Office, iWork, HTML, pictures, music & audio-books, videos. This is what you can view in GoodReader, plus you can also annotate PDF files and edit TXT files.
-= PDF Reading and Annotating =-
PDF files is where GoodReader truly shines. Reading experience is so superior, it's hard to describe. To rephrase one of our customers' review, "try it, and you'll see." While you're at it, give our PDF Reflow feature a try. You'll be surprised how much better PDF reading goes when you don't have to scroll left/right all the time, for every single line of text.
Annotating PDFs is another star feature of our app. Adding notes and drawings, highlighting text, and then sharing your annotated files or annotation summaries will be your main productivity and collaboration asset.
-= File Management =-
While reading files is a big part of GoodReader, it's not all it can do. It can also serve as a central hub for all your files, even those that can't be opened by GoodReader itself. It's like bringing your personal computer experience to your mobile device — easily managing huge collections of files and folders will make you forget you don't have your laptop around.
-= Connecting =-
Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box.com, WebDAV, SMB, AFP, FTP, SFTP — these are all accessible from inside GoodReader. Download, upload, and sync individual files or huge folder collections.
-= Security =-
With GoodReader, your data security steps up to the level previously only dreamt of. With Pro Pack® (*), our new set of professional-level super-features, you'll get AES-256, a military-grade encryption, for all your data, at a price of a cup of coffee! And it's completely independent from the built-in Apple's Data Protection, so even if a hacker steals and unlocks your device, your data will still be protected by another strong layer of security, our own.
-= Split-Screen =-
A part of the Pro Pack (*) add-on, this wonderful new feature allows you to split an iPad screen in half, to read two files side-by-side. And even two different parts of the same file!
-= Privacy =-
Our commitment is to never monitor any user activity or gather any analytical data through the app. There are no usernames, profiles or accounts to log in to. Use the tool at your leisure with ZERO monitoring.
(*): Pro Pack® is a paid add-on, sold separately from inside the app, as an in-app purchase.

The app allows me to do most of my paperwork on my phone
As a record producer, I needed to deal with doc, pdf, mv approval, mp3... this is the only app allow me to centralize all of them and organize them in the most useful way around a project. However, I still think there are ways to make a great app better:
1. On IOS, Whenever I use other app such as mail and watsapp to open the files “open in” GoodReader , it will transfer those files to the toppers level, i I have to regroup and folder them one more time..I think it would be nice if I can override and set this to a folder of our choice. It will speed up the workfliw tremendously.
2. For critical audition, I still uses other music players such as neutron, hiby, NePLAYER... but my lyrics and video are in one of goodreader’s folder. It would ultra nice if GoodReader can find ways to improve its music playback engine. As it already got the best filing system. Then I will gladly use it as my main mp3 and media player on or offline (instead others or even )
My work nature requires me to read many construction drawings and document. This app help me a lot to file all necessary document easily and systematically; the most important thing is I could bring these files along with my iPad which save the burden to carry and keep hard copies. It’s easy to mark up comments or input highlights on the drawings and document too. The programme will be perfect if the main manual could be easily to call out.
Excellent document viewer and manager
Just what the subject says.
Works very well, and the developers are often updating and improving the software.
2 years on, and it is still one of the most used apps on my iPad. There haven't been many updates recently, but I'd be hard pressed to think of anything they could improve.
I'm still a happy customer.
Many years on and v5 has just been released. The whole program has been updated and much improved. I’m not sure i needed the add on, but i purchased it anyway as a way to say “thanks for the update”
It’s still my favorite document manager.
