    GoodReader for iPad​

    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.

    It's an excellent app and the ability to annotate pdfs has just increased it's usefulness.

    i agree, i've read the features. so i decided to get it. at 0.99$ it's just worth it. and i think they are planning to hike up the price. ;) anybody interested , get one.

    got a question though. i was using the goodreader app for iphone and so most of the files i have are there. any easy way to transfer them to goodreader ipad app?

    Really? You owe it to yourself to drop a buck on the iPad version.

    I really love this app since im not jailbroken anymore. I can do a lot with it. I finally figured out how to avoid itunes for movie downloads n transfers. I juss download movie into goodreader. Then either use link or the open in to play it. Ive only tested a avi. Format movie. I have cinexplayer but itunes transfers only. So i used Oplayerhdlite, the free version. It worked but takes a while for it to play, but it did play. Reason probaly oplayer. I also have vlclayer but once again itunes only transfers. Goodreader is a great versatile tool on ipad.
    It says file limits lifted but i think thays not true. I tried to email a 89mb file to a friend n it told me NO..lol. Theres a 9mb cap limit on emails or email attachments. Anyone else notice this?

    Can anyone help with Goodreader please. I have my manuals loaded and Goodreader works fine.

    How can I save my bookmarks, so they show in Abobe. Also, when I move the PDF to my PC, and edit/save the PDF.

    What happens, when I move the PDF out to the PC, open in Adobe, the Bookmarks I made in Goodreader does not show. Finally when I edit the PDF document and save it, put it back into Goodreader, all the Bookmarks are gone.

    I am using Goodreader v3.0.2 and iPad 64GB. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
