User Reviews for GoodReader Pro PDF Editor

Very convenient

The features on this app make referencing materials easy, especially being able to cast two documents at the same time. Moving documents around, and making folders is very easy. I only wish that you could edit text, and that searching within documents started with the page you are currently on, instead of continuing with the next word in order.

I got this app with the intent of going paperless utilizing my iPad Pro when out in the field on assignments. I condensed/combined documents for each day’s work into a pdf, then imported it into Good Reader Pro. Some of the pdf’ s had to have annotations made as I went along. I discovered during the first day that after annotating a pdf, then entire document would freeze up and not allow me to go to the next page. Long story short - I had duplicate back-up pdf’s in the Apple Books app. It worked like a charm - annotations and all, so I abandoned Good Reader Pro for the rest of the assignment. I also ran into a couple of bugs and had a couple of questions right after I purchased this app. It took the developer nearly two weeks to respond without really helping to resolve another issue.

Was 4.5 stars till today!

I have been using GoodReader Pro for about a year now for my crosstitch patterns. I have loved it. Suddenly today, it is VERY glitchy…to the point that it is unusable. It will not respond to or responds very very slowly to using the highlighter & eraser. I then downloaded the update and closed down/restarted my iPad. But it’s continuing to act up. Do you have any suggestions? I am frustrated especially because I am in the midst of a pattern. And, it doesn’t keep my pattern up when I close & reopen the program. It used to open to the pattern and to exactly where I left off when I closed down. In fact, when I placed the program in the background while I wrote this review, it shut the file down. HELP!

Need True Dark Mode

This app contrary to its description may have a dark mode but not night mode. It only reduces screen brightness. This is not a true dark mode. Dark mode or night mode, would have high contrast, or inverted colors. Unfortunately this app does not offer this option. I can use night mode through my iOS. But it would be good if this feature was embedded in the app itself, as in Kindle and iBook.

Pro is Accurate

Been using the reader version for years. Just purchased the Pro version and couldn't be happier. Had several questions that tech support answered promptly and satisfactorily. Had to copy over 3200 rather large .pdf files from reader edition to Pro edition. Easy and fast!

Horrible Implementation, no easy sync options...

I don't understand why an app that is supposed to be a good reader is so horribly complicated! Where does one even begin with the lack of Features! This has to be the worst pdf reader that I have ever paid for... There is no easy way to sync this device even though iCloud! You literally have to set up who knows what to actually get it to sync... I wouldn't actually know since it doesn't come with any kind of instructions whatsoever... All I know is that this app was NOT work $13 and I would suggest looking elsewhere if you want ease of use, because this app is not that at all!

A Real Workhorse!

This was the first true productivity app I purchased for iOS. I still consider it the best after years of use. It is a rare combination of strengths, not just a one trick pony. I really recommend it to anyone with an iOS device that is not just used to play games.

Fantastic for academic work

I use GoodReader constantly - every day, near enough. Reading journal articles is a big part of my life, and this app lets me organise them logically, highlight and annotate, view my annotations easily, copy-paste text, and flip from one article to another really easily. It's also possible to do a split-screen, with GoodReader on one side and a notebook app on the other, which is the most efficient and intuitive way I've ever found to take notes while reading. Setting up sync (with Google Drive, in my case) can be a bit trial-and-error at times, but it was well worth it - I know I won't lose my annotations and my archive of articles I've read, whatever happens. GoodReader is one of the few apps I genuinely would be distraught to lose!

I use it almost every day

I am able to download into the app by printing recipes, then use fingers to expand, it goes into a pdf and opens in GoodReader. Thank you soooo much for the excellent app. I have both the Pro version and the older version. I use both and have many folders in each. I download and keep a copy of different manuals of my appliances and such. Then when I need one I can search in GoodReader and fine it easily.

One of my most used apps

I’ve been using GoodReader for over 10 years now almost daily. It’s one of my most used apps I own.It’s utilities allow me the flexibility to locate bookmarks for reference, organize several manuals I utilize often and safely keep both personal and professional sensitive documents at my fingertips.

GoodReader® Pro and our famous classic GoodReader app are essentially the same app, but this one comes with Pro Pack® pre-activated, no subscription or in-app purchase needed. First released in 2009, GoodReader is truly a veteran of the App Store. In the modern app business, it's not easy to stay relevant that long.

We're proud to say that after 12 years and counting, we've been delivering wonderful updates with extraordinary new features. And we're going to keep doing that! GoodReader is a perfect combination of document-reading and file-managing capabilities. It's your one-stop shop for all your document needs when you're on the go with your iOS device. Use the app once, and you'll be hooked. Soon you'll be wondering how you ever managed to work without it. -= File Reading =- PDF, TXT, MS Office, iWork, HTML, pictures, music & audio-books, videos. This is what you can view in GoodReader, plus you can also annotate PDF files and edit TXT files. -= PDF Reading and Annotating =- PDF files is where GoodReader truly shines. Reading experience is so superior, it's hard to describe. To rephrase one of our customers' review, "try it, and you'll see." While you're at it, give our PDF Reflow feature a try. You'll be surprised how much better PDF reading goes when you don't have to scroll left/right all the time, for every single line of text. Annotating PDFs is another star feature of our app. Adding notes and drawings, highlighting text, and then sharing your annotated files or annotation summaries will be your main productivity and collaboration asset. -= File Management =- While reading files is a big part of GoodReader, it's not all it can do. It can also serve as a central hub for all your files, even those that can't be opened by GoodReader itself. It's like bringing your personal computer experience to your mobile device — easily managing huge collections of files and folders will make you forget you don't have your laptop around. -= Connecting =- Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box.com, WebDAV, SMB, AFP, FTP, SFTP — these are all accessible from inside GoodReader. Download, upload, and sync individual files or huge folder collections. -= Security =- With GoodReader, your data security steps up to the level previously only dreamt of. With GoodReader Pro, you'll get AES-256, a military-grade encryption, for all your data. And it's completely independent from the built-in Apple's Data Protection, so even if a hacker steals and unlocks your device, your data will still be protected by another strong layer of security, our own. -= Split-Screen =- This wonderful feature allows you to split an iPad screen in half, to read two files side-by-side. And even two different parts of the same file!
