"QuickSearch PDF Reader is the tool you didn't realize you needed ... searches are extra fast but it's the interface design that shines ... a terrific app" -- The Unofficial Apple Weblog (tuaw.com)

QuickSearch PDF Reader makes it fast and easy to find text in PDF documents. When you add a document, it is scanned in the background, so when you search, results are instant. And as well as searching within a document, you can search across all your documents at once.

It’s also a great PDF viewer with a very natural style of navigation. It snaps to page boundaries, yet it’s easy to flick past them. Zooming is straightforward by pinching, or you can double-tap a region of text to zoom to fit. You can easily jump to any part of the document using the scrub bar. And everything is lightning-fast, even on large documents.

You can easily get your documents into QuickSearch from other apps on your iPad or iPhone that support the "Open In..." function, such as Mail, Safari, or Dropbox. You can also use iTunes File Sharing to transfer documents to and from your Mac or PC. Full step-by-step instructions are included.

I would give 5 stars if had highlight and note taking abilities.

The app does what it’s marketed to do. However it could use the additional functions of being able to highlight and note take since I use this for larger files that I need to constantly reference.

This is a fantastic app. Following the reading of a review, I bought it because it was affordable. I have been fantastically surprised. The people who did this must be lovers of mathematics. So far, I have added more that thirteen gigs of data to the app and it runs through the stuff like a hurricane.
I have been looking for an application that runs through stuff rapidly and I have not been disappointed by the sheer speed. Probably the power of iOS 13 might be employed to allow this to be second to none on any iPad that apple puts out. To the makers: Fantastic job! God bless you!
I look forward to any annotation frills that you might add later!

Eye of the tiger!

No joke. This app crushes all other pdf search apps and eats them for breakfast. I depend on it to instantly find obscure information in my pdf library. It’s like lightning in a bottle. I’m surprised they don’t charge more for it.
If you like to instantly find information across your entire pdf library without knowing exactly where the reference is, this will do it. That’s the beauty of it: I don’t need to know what reference it’s in. I just type a phrase and it narrows down the sources instantly.

It’s amazing.
