Excellent PDF Reader and Editor

Used daily for 2+ years

Overall, the experience using PDF Expert has been great, I also really like that they have mobile apps that you can sync your files across devices, and there seems to be pretty good implementation of features, hopefully they will make it a full PDF editor including form creation and editing capabilities!

Pros
Very easy software to use, opens PDF files quickly and allows for the typical annotations (highlights, add text, delete a page, etc)

Cons
The main and only con I can think of is that the form editing capabilities is limited - you cannot create signature boxes or an editable form, if this later gets updated to include creating forms in our PDFs then this will truly be a winning 5-star PDF tool

We record audiobooks and have several directors working with texts in several different studios on iPads. iAnnotate was proving a disaster, basically because it was so hard to find documents and sync them quickly. PDF expert is very good for our business.

Pros
Ease of use. Ease of locating files. It's simple to create new pdfs from exitsing files; easy to extract pages and rearrange them. Good and easy synching with Dropbox and Google Drive.

Cons
Navigation (wish it had more ways to navigate through large pdfs.) Simpler and clearer bookmark functions.It's the ONLY thing I miss from iAnnotate. wish it has a progress bar through the document.

Overall I enjoy using this software and will continue to use it.

Pros
I really enjoy PDF Experts UI and it's simplicity. It allows me to make all of the annotations needed for my drawings and miscellaneous documents.

Cons
I find that there could be a bit more flexibility with the app. Maybe the ability to add leaders and text together. Also make it easier to have text with blocks around it.

a good rather best PDF editor for the iOS but way less capable than desktop softwares and even very poor reader for PDF books.

Pros
This is one of the many PDF softwares available for iOS and mac but one of the few “editors” for iPAD/iOS. The good news is, it does what it says and perhaps the most capable one for the iPAD. it is also comaptible seamlessly with documents (by readle) so that once you buy PDF expert, its features are automatically enabled in the documents app. it is also fast and stable enough 10 usds (In my country) is a price so much justified for the features.

Cons
no free version no trial. pay to use. color accuracy is sometimes horrible. (again wish i could send screenshot but) a simple nice light blue color may appear horrible dark blue like (imagine the header of a window on Windows 98) but the search feature is slower than Adobe reader and documents by readle and the scrolling is not as smooth as on adobe either( which i could upload short video of what i mean)

Pros
Great PDF product with correspondent mobile apps. May not have all the bells and whistles of the market leader, but it has the necessary tools.

Cons
If I had a complaint, it would be that the custom stamp tool doesn't allow for multi-line text.

Best PDF annotator for iOS and macOS

Pros
PDF Expert works very well on both macOS and iOS. I use it on both of these OS's every day. The pen functionality of my iPad Pro works very well with PDF Expert. I am able to write, highlight, comment, etc. on the PDF's as I am able to on paper. Functionality to add a PDF page, remove a page, or merge PDF's is great.

Cons
Functionality to convert a PDF to Word (or other document type) would be nice. Whenever I need to convert a document to Word, or make a scanned document searchable, I have to use Adobe Acrobat DC. It'd be nice being able to use a single PDF software for these purposes.

Using Readdle PDF Expert makes it so all my notes are electronic. I can easily share them. I love this paperless solution.

Pros
Adobe is a hassle! I was so glad when I found the Readdle products. Now I can take notes on PDFs as well as edit them and even sign them. No more papers!!

Cons
What I don’t like is that there are so many programs. They bundle the price, but the software is still separate. I wish they were all wrapped into one program.

I was hoping that PDF Expert would be my affordable solution to Adobe high prices. However, unfortunately, I really need to make fillable PDF forms. This is the one capability that was lacking with PDF Expert. So although using it is easy and good in quality, it does not offer a particular functionality that is very important to me and my work.

Pros
Good price point. It is compatible with Mac. It offers good functionality and an easy to use interface.

Cons
The only con, which prevented me from keeping the software is that you cannot make fillable PDFs/forms. It is still not a capability.
