  • Seriously!! When!!!

    By Jet Sunrider
    I’ve been waiting for this update so long guys, and I’m not getting a warm fuzzy feeling that it’ll happen this year! Really what’s going on! Love the app but, this hype about the super update is getting old!!!
  • Good Job, but...

    By Fan of GoodReader
    Solid product. No major complaints. Very stable and well organized. Lots of good capability to connect to various file server types (SMB, IMAP, Google Drive, etc.). And it can do a lot of cool stuff with PDF — I use it to overlay all kind of notes, insertions, drawings, ... on PDF files. I would (and do!) recommend as a good general purpose tool. I use it daily and have for a couple years. One nitpick — it’s attempt to render PPT is very often flawed, but I have to believe that PPT is probably horribly complex, and completely (publicly) undocumented so I don’t really hold that much against the app. I generally save my PPT as PDF and then transfer them to GoodReader, thus avoiding this problem. I would like to suggest one addition - if I could write text files in Markdown format and have them rendered as such it would greatly increase my ability to use this for other types of documents, especially notes.
  • Almost perfect

  • I llove this app.

    This app is great. It allows me to keep my entire file system on my ipad. I can do business any place, anytime.
  • Great PDF editor

    By sk8manjl
    This app is critical to my studies. Working in IT, I’m constantly reading through documentation and tech manuals to keep myself up to date with the technologies I work with. This app allows me to thoroughly edit these documents in a way that clearly indicates important information I will need later. One feature I’d like to see is the ability to take a screen grab of the document I’m reading. I consolidate my notes into a OneNote notebook and often like to include diagrams to illustrate a point I’m reading. Is there any word on the release of version 5?
  • Fantastic - needs a few tools

    By Tastek86
    This app is a must have for graduate school. Few teachers issue readings in paper form, and much time is spent reading PDF’s. This makes reading, organizing, and note taking so much easier. That said, you do need another app (I like OneNote from Microsoft) to take long form notes on. To support this, this app needs a lasso tool so that I can copy a picture from a PDF and paste into other note taking apps. Right now, there does not seem to be any way to do this.
  • Update?

    By Chris31390
    Edited again for 10 months. 10 months abandoned, any word on when it’s being updated?
  • One of the Best Reader / need to upgrade search design

    By PhyominHtet
    Dear developers It’s really good to use this app; But one of the problem is “Search by words” design I kindly suggest to change search by words design When the word is searched , if it was shown in mini box (like PC Adobe page maker)it will be better Thanks in advanced developers
  • Awful Customer Service

    By iBayern1
    What happened to promised “very soon update”!!!!!? It is ok that an update take longer than what predicted initially, but developer not responding to costumers is rude.
  • Does not migrate from old goodreader app

    By WhatsInAName!
    I bought this app since i had a great experience with earlier version. But the migration assistant is very poorly designed. A message “Can’t launch old app for some reason” pops up and that’s the end of migration. I would expect to get access to my old library if that is one of the features of this version. Please fix this at the earliest.
