Unreliable app

The app crashes sometimes (no idea why) spontaneously during upload .pdf from websites.

And, very irritating: on iPad in landscape mode the arrow to read full page doesn’t work. The page flip back to the previous mode.

Maybe you could have a look at Goodreader Pro... Thats far much better to use...

Still crashing in iOS 13.2

Hopeless app.
