Needs Work

The inability to send bulk documents renders this almost worthless. Other problems—if you make multiple edits with the pencil and later want to change one, you will have to delete all of the edits you made; you cannot just delete/change one. If you make an edit on the bottom of one page and another edit on the top of the following page, it will lump those together but because they are on different pages will not include the latter in a printout. The app will close unexpectedly and will lock up during search functions. That are just some of the problems. Unfortunately it is the only app that is authorized for our enterprise so I am stuck with it.

Total Garbage

I only use this because the security settings my employer requires limits me to this app. It is probably the worst software I use. It crashes constantly. You cannot delete documents (I have to delete the app and reinstall frequently to clear things out). The interface is cumbersome. And frequently the markups get corrupted when emailing.

If you have a choice of apps for marking up PDFs on your iPad, use something else.



Almost never works as it should. If the app is working for you, do yourself a favor and never update it.
