Great app but...

I’ve used this app for writing notes and it went great! Helped me a lot in my 5th semester engineering calculations and diagrams. Just recently I made a new folder for my 6th semester notes and I was writing down notes and suddenly the app crashes. Nothing was lost , I opened it again to continue writing but it crashed again and again. I restarted the iPad, checked the updates but nothing worked. So unfortunately I had to uninstall it.

Very productive but searching a word in a document is very tedious

There is no navigation button for searched word . We have to each time go to find option and then scroll for page number s in which searched word exist. You can take a look on xodo or any other pdf reader for searched word navigation word. I was planning to shift from xodo to this app, but due to this problem I didn’t shifted. Rest all feathers are brilliant. I am doing post graduation in surgery. I read pdf only.
I rated it down
It crashes down when opening pdf more than 500mb. Also it is not able to load pdf annotated with other apps like xodo.
Also searched words is difficult to find in pdf as no navigation button added for searched word. Why to give updates , when basic search functionality is not being improved.
Please consider customer feedback’s before blindly giving updates every 3rd day.

Really efficient 😃

This app has many features and easy to use, what surprised me the most was the feature that allows you to scroll down with your finger, like when your writing something and you want to scroll
down, you don’t have to keep writing as you scroll, there’s and icon
To use only your finger.
Love this app, it’s like a second version of the notes app 😃 ❤️
