Comments and Ratings for PDF Expert - Edit, Annotate and Sign PDFs

Fantastic PDF Viewer and Annotator (2.1.2)
15/01/2017 12:27:00 5/5 By Andrew Hanson, Author
I have been using PDF Expert 5 for iOs for some time now to edit drafts of my work. So when I saw Readdle had released the MacOS version I couldn’t resist snapping it up. I currently use it mainly as a PDF reader rather than annotator (I still use the iOs version on my iPad Pro to mark up my review drafts - it’s much easier using the Apple Pencil). However, I might look at using the Duet app with the iPad pro to annotate my PDF drafts on the Mac version in the near future. For now though I use the excellent Readdle Transfer functionality to transfer my marked up review drafts onto the Mac for further review. PDF Expert is an excellent piece of software which really helps with my writing workflow. The app has undertaken a number of improvements since it first released and the developers will be continually adding new features. Simple yet reliable multi device transfers is its standout feature for me. Well done Readdle.

One of the most useful apps I’ve purchased (2.1.2)
13/01/2017 10:23:00 5/5 By cathmandu
This does everything that I hoped it would do, better than I expected. It also does things I didn’t realise I wanted to do.

problems of automatically scroll (2.1.1.)
07/01/2017 14:48:00 1/5 By 黑夜吹冷风
the app always automatically scroll and crash!

What a great App (2.1.1.)
07/01/2017 06:04:00 5/5 By Beulah777
This is probably the best PDF app you will ever use. Carry on with the great work which you are continualy improving.

Way better than Preview or Acrobat Pro (2.1.1.)
24/12/2016 04:46:00 5/5 By ArchiJim
I was amazed to find that this app is so much better than either Preview or Acrobat Pro in the way you can open and adjust/add text to virtually any pdf document. it doesn’t have the permissions issues with Preview but has much better tools, and is easier to use than Acrobat Pro, although it does not produce forms as such and text boxes is the work-around here. I had been searching for ages for a better solution and this is it. Brilliant.

Drawings (2.1)
18/12/2016 23:23:00 5/5 By Geoff2701
This app is great and hopefully will get even better for drawings. one thing that would improve it would be when you have drawn a line it would be good if you could split it say to put a gap say half way along it rather than have to draw one half and then the other .and draw squares at an angle rather than with 90 deg corners

PDF Expert -A first class app! (2.1)
12/12/2016 03:11:00 5/5 By Anita009
As a long time user of Acrobat, using PDF Expert is just like a dream. Its smooth, user-friendly and is simply a joy to use. This is just a fabulous app and worth every penny!

Useful App (2.0.1)
02/12/2016 06:31:00 5/5 By AGB 123456789
Its great and I use it all the time across OSX & IOS but please sop asking me to rate it again and again!

Good, But Needs More Features To Become Indispensible (2.0.1)
01/11/2016 13:27:00 3/5 By chrisholden84
A good app at reading and editing PDF files. It’s limited to only being able to read PDF files, so any other file cannot be opened with this app at all. It really needs improving to add support to open and read other files like JPEG etc. even if these can’t be edited, so it can truly replace Preview and Acrobat. It also needs a built-in PDF convertor, so other files can be dragged into and converted immediately to PDF. This feature is sorely missed and what diferentiates Adobe Acrobat from this. At present you have to open multiple JPEG's in another program, save each as a PDF and then open in PDF Expert to combine into a single unified PDF file. It’s a step thats not necessary with a PDF Convertor. You should be able to drag 5 JPEG’s directly into PDF Expert which automatically converts the JPEG’s into PDF’s and also into a single PDF portfolio (which Acrobat does).

Very good (2.0.1)
20/10/2016 12:27:00 4/5 By Klank101
Very good, If it could manage pdf librarys as Finger PDF used to do it would be unstopable and 5 stars - please develope this feature as there is a real gap in the market!

PDF Expert -A first class app! (2.0.1)
14/10/2016 09:33:00 5/5 By Anita009
As a long time user of Acrobat, using PDF Expert is just like a dream. Its smooth, user-friendly and is just simply a joy to use. Don’t have any doubts whatsoever about purchasing this app, as you won’t regret it. It’s worth every cent, euro, penny; dollar or pound. I love it!

Superb App from a superb company. (2.0.1)
30/09/2016 12:43:00 5/5 By Polyzoan
Extremely good, reliable and with great functionality. An essential App for the mac and iPad for the serious pdf user.

More tools and less eclectic (2.0.1)
22/09/2016 11:48:00 5/5 By Robert928133
I’ve used PDF Expert since launch - it's a great tool and more than replaces the preview app on osx. It loads fast and has become a valuable part of my everyday workflow. The ability to easily mereg and split pages is very hands, and much easier to use that preview. ir also works well with iCloud

Superb app (2.0.1)
21/09/2016 15:41:00 5/5 By Verbosten
PDF Expert is brilliant: fast and flexible, with a clean interface, and a lot of useful functions. A few specialist tools are missing when compared to, say, Adobe, but PDF Expert is much better for daily use when reading and annotating PDF files. What really sets it apart is the ability to link up between desktop and mobile devices: integration with cloud services is very good, but the Readdle Transfer facility is my new favourite thing, and has made my work much easier. (Good customer service too, incidentally. I had a problem syncing with one of my cloud accounts, and my email received a prompt and helpful reply.) Full marks all round.

Now a really useful PDF reader & writer (2.0.1)
14/09/2016 11:25:00 5/5 By Paul Newby
Easy and good application that has been greatly improved since a recent update It is a great default reader. It can write on PDFs to complete forms etc and can now make amendments if required.

Fantastic App, It Just Works & Work REALLY well, Easily edit pdf. Add notes saves automatically. Used on all my devices Mac Book Pro, Ipad, as well as my iPhone. Best App that I have ever purchased. I wouldn't have minded what this app cost - as this is an app that I just wouldn’t or coudn’t be without. Keep up the great work. Great. I had initially to deal with customer support, which turned out to be really refreshing in that the support & help that was needed was provided all the way through. Great Help & Great Support.. Well Done !!! 5*****

It does what is says it will. (2.0.1)
08/09/2016 11:37:00 5/5 By ID_Newbie
This app is intuitive, simple to use and stable. I can quickly open and edit documents. It allows graphics to be edited in place, once the edit is complete in my chosen package (Affinity) I press enter and it updates in the PDF, great.

Sleek, functional, and rapidly improving (2.0.1)
06/09/2016 08:34:00 5/5 By S_A_B
This is a sleek and ever more powerful PDF application, backed by very responsive development and support teams. The rapid pace of development has brought this app to a full-fledged replacement for some of the more entrenched software out there. This is now my default PDF app.

Great app!! (2.0.1)

This is the great app to use working with PDF’s for home or professional level users. Must have application for every MAC!

This is a very neat app that does everything you need to handle pdf files. It’s easy to handle multiple open files in one or more windows, provides editing and merging. Thoroughly recommended!

the embedded asian fonts unable to display (2.0)
28/08/2016 20:23:00 1/5 By 兽性大发乖乖小白兔
sorts of embedded asian fonts cannot be display properly or are just missing. it makes this app less usable with the chinese documents. i have submitted this issue to the developer about one year ago regarding the first version, but this problem is still there in the second version. disappoint…. please fix it!

Impressive update of an app that already was really good (2.0)
26/08/2016 16:27:00 5/5 By ThomasJ2011
The capabilities added in this most recent update provide a whole new level of functionality. I am very impressed.

Brilliant interface, brilliant customer service, brilliant update. (2.0)
24/08/2016 18:41:00 5/5 By CJCJ01
I bought into PDF Expert when version 1 was released and it just keeps getting better. I made some functionality suggestions in early releases and the team took them on board and have released them all, including asking for additional feedback to get the UI right. The latest update to version 2 was a free update to existing users which is incredibly generous and unexpected and the featureset is excellent. Editing PDFs, even on Acrobat Pro, was never easy, particularly where there was complicated text formatting or fonts weren’t installed on your local machine. While some of these challenges still exist on the latest version of PDF Expert, it is an absolute joy to use for simple text editing with an intuitive and simple interface. Once they’ve added drag and drop form creation I imagine there won’t be any need for the majority of average users to pay the extortionate price demanded by Adobe for Acrobat Professional. Probably the best PDF editor there is, definitely the best customer support and worth the investment. Thank you Readdle!

Awesome user friendliness and versatility (2.0)
23/08/2016 23:34:00 5/5 By Capdoc
