GoodReader is as good as it gets for PDF reading, marking up, and organizing. It has a small learning curve, and functions in smart ways, and handles large PDF files rather well. GoodReader is undoubtedly the most powerful, versatile, and useful file management / general productivity app for iOS.
First, transfer a file to GoodReader (see: How To Import Files & Folders), then tap a file name to open it.
When you`re reading a PDF file in GoodReader, there`s plenty of helper tools for you.
Learn how to navigate PDF
Read the text out loud
Use PDF Reflow to extract pure text from a PDF file and comfortably read it as plain text with a font size of your choice, and no unnecessary left/right scrolling
Lock the page to avoid accidental scrolling or page-turning. When in locked mode, use special buttons, Bluetooth foot pedal, or a generic Bluetooth keyboard to turn pages. This feature is popular among musicians during live performances when staying on a particular page is critical even if you accidentally touch the screen.
Annotate & Markup – fill forms & sign documents
Extract, add, delete, rearrange PDF pages, split and merge files
Undeniably The Best ios File Manager Available
Good Reader was one of the first apps I owned back when we got our first iPad. Their developers continue to innovate, allowing Good Reader to retain its status as `the best file manager` even after all these years!
Good Reader is always one of a few must have apps I put on each and every ios device I or any family member uses. We don`t use it a lot as some do, because you can use it for virtually everything, but we have it available to use for when we need too.
Our primary usage is as a iCloud Drive repository for all of our important documents. We have perhaps 20 folders with a couple hundred files ranging from images, PDF`s, Pages & Word document. But you can also keep other types of documents such as rich text too. Rarely do I encounter a data type that doesn`t work in Good Reader.
