Best PDF viewer available on iPad

It would be a great hardship for me to be without PDF Markup. And it keeps on getting better!

I continue to learn PDF Markup's new tools. Recently, I began using a monthly Bible Lesson resource. Each month the PDF is almost 100 pages. The table of contents shows the lesson title and page number for each Sunday's lesson but there is no link to jump to the page. I discovered that in PDF Markup I can easily add a link in the table of contents to the page of each lesson.

I use PDF Markup every Sunday to present my Bible Class lesson. Every font and jpg are preserved from the MS Word file so there are no surprises on the big projector screen. Creating a link in PDF Markup is also useful to quickly jump to an image out of sequence.

In preparation for a final exam I listened to PDF Markup speak (pound) the review material into my head from my iPhone as I exercised. I made an A on the exam!

The Best Speadsheet

I love all that this company does to help people like me be more productive and organized. I use the basic program that has advertisements. I would like to be able to continue using the free version as long as possible as I am disabled by chronic Lyme disease and cannot afford the upgraded version. Thank you for all of your hard work, I cannot thank you enough for this amazing program!

Turn off Notifications once Tapped on!

Great app, but notifications are quite annoying. The red # indicator within the app should disappear once I've viewed it! Instead it stays on until I actually visit a website I have no time to enjoy or set push notifications on, which I will not do.

App itself is easy to use, mostly intuitive, and has many features of the brand-name product that is used on personal computers. Have used it for years and just gets better. (Aside from those pesky notifications).

Developer Response ,

Hello there, Thanks for your suggestion. We have reported this issue to our marketing department. To provide you better service, we will keep adjusting internal strategies of product. Feel free to contact us at if you have further suggestions. Many thanks!
