Excellent and independent

App to use everyday on my iPad. I am master degree student. Developer has quickly responded to questions and suggestions. File management applet is missing or to be improved.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for this rating and for getting in touch. Could you please send me another mail and explain the desired "File management applet" in detail. Kind regards, Marian Koenig


Exports to other apps like PDF Expert and GoodReader

I was surprised to find that once I allowed access to one or all of my photos in the Photos app, that all the other share options are available within Preview mini. So I can import copies of pdfs or photos from my PDF Expert files or GoodReader files, edit them and export the files back to those apps directly from Preview mini. Sharing to Messages and Mail are other export options as well as sharing to other devices by AirDrop.

I love this app!

Developer Response ,

Thanks a lot for this lovely feedback. I am really appreciate it. Kind regards, Marian Koenig

Been wanting a version of Preview for my iPhone. I wanted it, initially, to edit pdfs sent to me, or created by me. I have to admit that it takes practice working on such a small screen and typing in numbers or copying and pasting items, but it’s not that difficult to do in actuality.

Overall, although I have not explored it fully, I give it 5 stars because I have accomplished a few tasks involving need to edit pdfs already without any significant issues.
