Readdle has just released a brand new update for its PDF Expert iPad app. PDF Expert 2.1 follows hot on the heels of the previous update which enabled you to fill in Adobe Acrobat forms directly on your iPad. Since that update, Readdle says that it has had a lot of requests from large businesses, including banks, insurance companies, universities and governmental agencies, who want to use PDF Expert to handle day-to-day operations within their organisations. PDF Expert 2.1 has been designed to help them do just that, according to Readdle. In addition to standard PDF forms, PDF Expert 2.1 can now handle electronic forms created in Adobe LiveCycle that are heavily used in enterprise, government and educational sectors, possibly enabling organisations to replace laptops with iPads for tasks related to PDF form-filling.
When opened in PDF Expert, a PDF form behaves exactly as it would if you opened it in a desktop PDF editor, with text fields, check boxes, radio buttons and other interactive elements fully supported. Readdle says this should help firms to save money training employees, presumably because it's much easier to use than on a computer.
