  • Its an App not a program!!

    By Jdmfinest
    Give a 5- star because it does what i needed it to do!!! - Annotate works 100% - Text Edit is awesome!! I like how they separate the text editing from annotation. Text editor is an additional fee, which I don’t regret. Some ratings are comparing app with a full blown program like Nitro PDF, and I don’t think thats been realistic.
  • Some defects

    By 韩旭旭旭旭旭
    No doubt the app is a good one. But I found it very inconvenient when I want put some figures and tables into another app like notability. The app does not have screen shot itself. I have to use screen shot of iOS which is very ineffective. Hope the problem can be fixed then this will be No1 PDF app for me.
  • Doesn’t edit or remove photos- just writes over them

    By Buyyer
    I bought both apps with the pro version for $20 . Just does not work to remove a photo, only to paste on top of it. I would like a refund if possible
  • Recording lecture like notability

    Almost all my classmates use Notability, which I had and used for the first part of my program. I switched to this app, and have fallen in love. It allows me to organize my files multiple folders deep and they stay in my iCloud Drive which allows me to access my notes on any computer since it’s just saved as a PDF. It allows you to select to highlight the text vs. just using the highlighter so my notes look much neater. You Can also strike through and underline the text. You still have the ability to hand write notes and such on top of just doing the changes to the text. It gives ability to view the outline format, and if you purchase the upgrade you can build the outline (which has been a lifesaver for 120 slide class PowerPoints), also with the upgrade you can also make links within the text.
  • Signatures don’t work

    By djivan
    Update after update the signature still appears in random spots after saving them.
  • Feature Request

    By starndust31
    I wish files would sync with document. Like if I have a file offline in documents then I’d also like it to appear in PDF expert
  • The best PDF app. The App Store.

    By malimd
    I have tried several PDF apps. This app has more versatility, accuracy, and integration than other apps. Also it is very affordable.
