Neat if can do same to PDF as Images

It is a neat App. Hopefully they’ll soon allow one to do to PDF what you can to images. Eg rotate pages of a document, cut, add text, etc

Hi, thanks a lot for your positive feedback and for using Preview mini. Rotation & adding text to PDF pages is already possible in the edit mode (pen icon). I am currently working on the cropping feature for document pages as well. Kind regards, Marian Koenig

As per Developer’s Request

Marian, Please Do not take it personal, I do not want to lower your App Ratting. If you think it is great so be it. It’s your baby but some babies are not good looking. There are other apps that do the same for free. I do not consider your app should get more than three stars. BUT That’s my opinion. The STAR Ratting system is BASE ON OPINIONS. I would give this app a Five star if it was free BECAUSE the hard work that you spend to make it and may be I will look for other apps that you have develop to see if I can use or buy. I am re-evaluating my Ratting. (Old Comments ) What is so unique about your app??? This is a basic image editor, nothing great about it.

Developer Response ,

Hello again. Unfortunately only one of your 3 mentioned stars is shown :( But thanks a lot for editing your post and for your honest feedback. Really appreciating it. I will give my best to make the app outstanding from the other ones and to make it worth 5 stars in the future.
Best regards,

[Initial answer:
Hello. I cannot understand this bad, hasty rating. The snipping tool based on the macOS model and the compact accommodation of all important functionalities for quick image editing are rare in the App Store. At least people looking for a program similar to macOS Preview find it useful. Apart from your unfriendly evaluation, I get a lot of encouragement and constructive feedback via email. If you don't like the app, that's one thing and not a problem. The starter version is free and therefore freely available so that everyone can decide for themselves whether the purchase is worthwhile for them. At this point, however, it is a great pity if it is misused to lower the app's rating without a good reason.
I would be glad if you reconsider your rating after really trying it. Let me know what you think could be improved feature-wise if you like.
Kind regards, Marian Koenig]

Love this idea

Preview is so great on the Mac and it has never been easy to do quick edit operations on iOS such as resize and dragging a selection to crop. This is lovely.

It’s a little less efficient than macOS Preview since you need to export a new image rather than just “close” the window to autosave.

I’m sure it’ll get better over time though. 🤗

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your nice feedback :) I will give my best to make the experience even better and even more Mac-like. Greetings from Germany.
