With this app you can, in a snap, create PDF's, view documents & PDF's, mark-up your documents as needed for presentations and then share your finished product to a multitude of storage hosts.

When you open PDF Reader, just tap PDF documents to begin your work. Take a look at Settings to adjust several items such as Viewer Mode, Enable iCoud, Air Play, WiFi Password, etc. just the way you'd like. Get started by accessing a button from your lower left screen. Choices include: (1) WiFi Sharing, Browser Download, Import Images, Cloud Storage or Download Tracker, (2) Specify a name for your new File Folder, (3) Take a pic of a new photo or document, or look at an old one, and (4) View thorough instructions on each feature.

What's neat about PDF Reader are the many choices available under each function. As a File Manager, PDF Reader can air print, create PDF forms, move and copy files to other folders, create new (including private) folders, import images from your photo library and even convert an image to a PDF file. The PDF scanner function allows you to adjust scanned images and send them via email, has several scanner settings, lets you preview the doc as well as save to the photo library.

The Annotation feature, however, is my favorite. Perhaps because it provides so many choices in making your presentation unique and innovative which can only impress the boss! Here you may add and remove bookmarks, add/edit/delete sticky notes, freehand draw, highlight, underline and strikeout text in your PDF files. These are the sort of things I would normally be doing on my desk top! In this new version, using File Transfer you can now sync files with iCloud for iOS 5 and later, as well as download files by entering existing URLs.

Do not let the many capabilities of this productive PDF reader daunt you. You can always access excellent instructions with graphic examples from any screen. Plus, complete directions are available online with the iPad User Guide.

COOL CONCLUSION: Simply amazing technology is the core of PDF Reader - iPad Edition with simplicity the key in viewing, creating, annotating, sharing and storing documents. This versatile PDF reader and scanner is perfect for anyone who needs accessibility and portability of documents with fine editing features.
