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,, 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.

App per me fondamentale: permette di scaricare praticamente TUTTI i formati di file (anche formati non riconosciuti dal programma, intanto li scarica e li salva e poi ti permette di rinominarli, copiarli, spostarli, con “open in..” aprirli nell’app adatta; ) permette di organizzarli in cartelle come un desktop Windows, spostarli (con il programma adatto..) su chiavetta con attacco lightning/usb, salvarli su iCloud o in locale. Legge foto,mp3, video, pdf, .doc, ecc...

Gran parte dei file che uso passano bene o male per questo programma..per me soldi stra-ben spesi!!!

Supera i limiti di iOS

Grazie a questa fantastica app siamo in grado di superare una certa parte dei limiti imposti da Apple a iOS. Sono limiti noti a tutti, ma specialmente fastidiosi quando appaiono in tutta la loro insopportabilità in un iPad Pro che non riesce ad essere pro per nulla...
Ecco, poter navigare e scaricare tranquillamente gli allegati che poi vengono comodamente smistati presso le altre app... questo è ottimo.
In poche parole è come avere un desktop a disposizione.

App veramente utile sotto ogni punto di vista. Gestisco e archivio tutti i miei file in modo facile e voloce. In passato ho comprato questa app fino ad arrivare alla versione 3. Non si aggiornava piu’. Quando ho giornata a iOS 11 ho scoperto che esisteva un a nuova versione che ho dovuto ricomprare... non condivido, di solito acquistata una volta si dovrebbe solo aggiornare.
