Excellent App, One Shortcoming

I've used this since I got one of the first iPads. I play board games that have lengthy rules, almost always available via PDF, and being able to access them easily was the killer app at the time.


My biggest issue is that you can't carry bookmarks from device to device easily. Some of these rule sets are 40+ pages and bookmarks are essential. Having to completely renter them is a huge pain. I haven't noticed the problem when updating a device, but it is definitely there using AirDrop or whatever the file sharing tech is called on iOS. Because the bookmarks aren't annotations, they are lost. A very minor nit, but for one game that has eight files with over 200 pages total, it was a couple of hours I'll never get back.
