GoodReader Updated to 3.0
Good.iWare's popular GoodReader app has been updated to 3.0. This update has more to do with PDF annotating, but fixes some bugs as well.
The changes include:
- PDF Annotation Support
- You can now extract files from PDF file attachments
- New gestures
- The ability to hide PDF watermarks
- Corrected an issue in iOS 3.x that caused crashes on some PDF files
- Some graphical elements now displayed better
- File-size limitations lifted
- UI improvements
- WiFi and Bluetooth conflict fixed
While GoodReader does much more than just view PDF files, the annotate feature is a shot across the bow of iBooks. With GoodReader's much better file transfer, organization and storage features, this writer will surely delegate iBooks' PDF tab back to one of those sub-menu features that one forgets about.
One wonders if GoodReader shouldn't have been a default iPad app at launch but its good to see a small company making the iPad experience better - and turning a pretty penny as well. GoodReader is currently number three ($0.99) on the Productivity Top 100, behind only Pages and Numbers.
I tried the annotate feature and found it fast and easy to use.
As a heavy GoodReader user, I was looking forward to this update.
