PDF expert 5

If you wish to read and annotate PDFs on the iPad, then there is perhaps no better app to do so with than PDF Expert 5. The latest in the long standing series of PDF annotation tools from developer Readdle, PDF Expert 5 is a well-respected app that normally commands a $9.99 purchase price.

If you’ve yet to purchase PDF Expert 5, then I have some good news for you: For the next week, the app is available as a free download from the App Store as a part of Apple’s Free App of the Week promotion.

The promotion comes hot on the heels of yesterday’s significant update to the app, which brought along support for the just-released iPad Pro, adds settings syncing via iCloud, adds hand off support, and more. Needless to say, it’s a good time to get in on PDF Expert5, and even more so because it’s free.

As a side note, Readdle also just released PDF Expert for the Mac, which means that you’ll be able to easily go back and forth with your PDF annotating needs between the desktop and iPad.

Again, PDF Expert 5 is available as a free download, but only for the next week, so act fast.

      I need to know too, I have always regarded goodreader as the best. It lacks nothing.

      • What are asking for, it’s free, just download it…

        I might be a bit biased.. 🙂
        But answering your question – yes! it’s waaay better than GR in terms of user experience. It’s actually much easier to do stuff.
