Great App…LOVE IT!
I was using a very expensive PDF progam and needed to upgrade because it was not compatible with my Macbook Pro but I didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars. I had never heard of PDF Expert and was a little hesitant to purchase. However, since purchasing this program I have been amazed at what it can do and how easy it is to use! Not only does it do...not all...but a lot of what my expensive program did…. it does it at a much lower cost.
I don’t use all the PDF Expert’s bells and whistles that the other reviewers mention, but I do scan all my household documents and receipts and important emails. Sometimes I forget to include a page(s). It’s so easy to merge the page(s) into the master document. My scanner sometimes scans blank pages or has them upside down. No worries since I can fix all those issues with PDF Expert. I love how fast I can rearrange and/or delete pages within the document. I could go on and on…but I think you get the message.
Although I purchased the app through the Apple App Store..I did have to contact the Readdle Customer Service with a minor update question. I have rarely seen such fast, professional and caring service. Alexandra at Readdle was wonderful and I also want to give her 5 stars! After reading some of the other reviews, I want to add that I have been using this prgram about 1.5 years and so far the program has never crashed nor has any of my documents been corrupted. Thank you Readdle Team!
PDF Expert rocks!
I spend bulk of my time reading PDF files, while making heavy annotations on them. In its new editions (2.X), PDF Expert has established truly praise-worthy feats in several fronts. In particular, annotating and feature-editing is now remarkably powerful and reliable. For example, you can very easily print only a certain portion of a page by simply removing other elements (figures, text, etc) to save ink. Simple dragging any image into an open PDF page, in addition to editing/cropping/re-positioning of pre-existing images, is also super helpful, if one uses PDF files as a notebook. As far as annotation is concerned, one can use an open PDF page as if it is an open canvas inside Photoshop. All these powerful functions can be done without eating up system resources.
Another pretty powerful feature is that one can open two windows from a single file—for example, the left window shows page 3 whereas the right window shows the page 7 of the same document, a truly powerful feature for side-by-side analysis of different segments of a single PDF. Personally, I would be really happy if the future edition provides a PLAYLIST function. This will allow one to create a playlist file linking to specific (eg. all the currently open) PDF files, which will then be used later to open all previously working files at once by simple double-clicking the playlist file.
The best, but not quite perfect, PDF reader
This is the best PDF reader out there, in my opinion. As an academic, I use Readdle’s PDF reader daily—it is perhaps my most used app. It is an especially useful app if, like me, you are pretty deep into the Apple ecosystem: I have Readdle’s PDF Expert on my iPhone, iPad, iMac, and Macbook and, with the help of Dropbox, I can sealmlessly move between my devices without having to do things like email to myself whatever document I’m working on. PDF Expert is wonderfully integrated into my workflow. The options for annotating documents, running split screens, etc. are excellent.
Though I think this app is the best PDF reader available, I do think there is room for improvement. Here are a couple things I would like to see:
- On the iPad version of the app, there is a view option that trims the white/blank borders of a document so that just the text part of the document shows up. It would be great if they could engineer a view-option like that for the Mac version. The current work-around involves cropping the document—but this actually alters the document itself. What I’d like is a view-option, that has the same view-effect but without altering the document.
- I would like to see an additional full-screen option that hides (or auto-hides) the top toolbar. This way the whole screen can be used for reading purposes.
