Pleasantly Surprised by this App

I came across this app while searching for a quality PDF viewer/editor for my iPad Pro. I was surprised to learn PDF reader can not only read, but also annotate locked/secured PDFs. I'm not sure I want to purchase the app, but only because it seems to be subscription-based rather than a one-time purchase fee. This is the main reason I give the app 4-stars instead of 5. The other reason is more subtle when it comes to using the annotation tools (like when you select text to apply highlights, underlines, etc., you have to choose the action from the contextual toolbar rather than the toolbar on the side of the screen). However, I have only been using the app for about three days. So when I have a chance to use it longer and also investigate the pricing model, I may update or prepare a new review. In the mean time, get this app.

Developer Response ,

Hello. Thank you for the review. We understood your concerns. First, the Creativity 365 subscription plan offers all advanced tools and services in our main featured apps, including PDF Reader, NoteLedge, Animation Desk, Pocket Scanner, and Write-on Video. You can try it out for free before you decide to purchase. If you cancel it before the trial ends, you won’t be charged.
Second, we provide two ways for users to annotate PDFs. Select text and then choose the actions from the pop-up menu bar (as you mentioned). The other one is to tap on the icon on the sidebar and then tap on the content you’d like to highlight or annotate.
We will have a new update soon so please stay tuned! If you have any further questions or concerns, please email us at We are always happy to assist you.

Finally, I can say that I found the ultimate PDF reader. I have used several different PDF readers before but I did not find them fit for me. This app is by far my favorite one. However, the reason I gave it 4 stars is due the struggle whenever I try to select a word. It is not as smooth. Hopefully, developers are going to take care of that as well as allow the built in IOS Reading Selection feature to work without having to upgrade to get this feature.

Full featured, but confusing as well to use

I played around with this app at a friend’s suggestion and there are definitely features I like about it. But, my two biggest complaints are these: 1) Way too many frequent ad pop ups that try to make you buy into something. Note to developer: Give people a chance to try the program without all that confusion and distraction for a few days. It only serves to frustrate a new user when you’re trying to figure out if the app will work for you. And 2) When I tied my Dropbox to the app I expected to be making changes to file I was working on connected to Dropbox, not downloading and edited the file on this program. It defeats the entire purpose of Dropbox! I have several other pdf editors and readers and this is the first to separate the file from Dropbox.

Developer Response ,

Hello. Thanks for the suggestions. With respect to the pop-ups, users will see the pop-ups only when tapping on the locked features or you stored more than 10 files in the app. We offer free trials to users to try out the advanced features for free (You can cancel it before the trial ends.) As for the Dropbox issue, PDF Reader currently enables you download the file and save it within the app for further editing. If you want to sync the edited file to your Dropbox, you have to use the "move" tool in file management mode to move the edited file to your cloud (No auto-sync support yet). If you still have questions and other suggestions, please feel free to contact us at We'd be happy to assist you. Thank you.
