Easy to do what it does, wish it were slightly more customizable.

I use this to mark and highlight scripts, and it does pretty well. It's easy and quick to use. I do wish the highlighter tool would either be sizable or actually be the size of an average line of a document. As it is, the highlighter covers about a line and a half which makes it difficult to get things right during dialogue when each character gets their own color. That's the worst I've got! Exportin, changing tools, all of that works as expected and rarely glitches at all.

App support?

You’re on your own with this one if you should have any questions or want to backup files inside this app. I’ve written them several times requesting info on how to backup the files stored in the app. I had a meltdown pneumonia on my first iPad and did a factory restore thinking my files safe in iTunes backup. Wrong. Should have learned then. I recently purchased a new iPad and again requested info on how to migrate the app and files (and I have several years of folders and files). Completed their “app support” request and again, no response. Again I’m on my own. It’s a great app otherwise and fit my modest needs. I’m even willing to pay for this type of program app. But now I’m looking for a new app to read, store and annotate PDFs because I can’t trust this one to keep my files safe and available. Fool me twice...

New User Suggestion

Just got introduced to this app this year in September and absolutely love what it has to offer as an educator!!

I have one question or suggestion...is there a way to swipe between different documents without going back to the original library? I grade my students digital papers in this app but seems as if I have to go back to the original folder I made to store the document before going to the next student.....is there an easier way?
