Rate of Innovation Astounding - I think what keeps Readdle very compelling is their ability to adapt and rapidly release new product features. I’ve already sent feedback for them to remember page position and they have quickly implemented that. Now I’ve suggested automatically saving page position across devices and to have an option to get rid of the highlighting color window and hopefully they will implement that soon. As a power PDF user, this product is quickly becoming more powerful than Adobe Acrobat Professional at a fraction of the price. With continued improvements I imagine that in a few months it will be the standard for PDFs on the Mac as PDF Expert has become on the iOS platform. Great job Readdle team and I hope you continue to improve the product rapidly as you have been thus far!
Not worth $20 - Yes, it scrolls smoothly. No better or worse than Preview. Yes, it can annotate PDFs, slightly better than preview (and that’s an emphatic qualification). But this app still doesn’t feel like it justifies its own existence, even for annotations. Connected to a Wacom tablet, it doesn’t detect stylus pressure - and when the pen is selected, a gigantic menu slides out of the right hand side obscuring the PDF document - making this app seem a bit like it promised much more than it was ready to deliver. If you want an application to highlight some text - great. This is the $20 app for you. But if you actually need to annotate something, especially with any kind of professional finesse, I’m sorry but this is not the app you’re looking for.

Great App…LOVE IT! - I was using a very expensive PDF progam and needed to upgrade because it was not compatible with my Macbook Pro but I didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars. I had never heard of PDF Expert and was a little hesitant to purchase. However, since purchasing this program I have been amazed at what it can do and how easy it is to use! Not only does it do...not all...but a lot of what my expensive program did…. it does it at a much lower cost. I don’t use all the PDF Expert’s bells and whistles that the other reviewers mention, but I do scan all my household documents and receipts and important emails. Sometimes I forget to include a page(s). It’s so easy to merge the page(s) into the master document. My scanner sometimes scans blank pages or has them upside down. No worries since I can fix all those issues with PDF Expert. I love how fast I can rearrange and/or delete pages within the document. I could go on and on…but I think you get the message. Although I purchased the app through the Apple App Store..I did have to contact the Readdle Customer Service with a minor update question. I have rarely seen such fast, professional and caring service. Alexandra at Readdle was wonderful and I also want to give her 5 stars! After reading some of the other reviews, I want to add that I have been using this prgram about 1.5 years and so far the program has never crashed nor has any of my documents been corrupted. Thank you Readdle Team!
Teacher Dream Tool - This is the first PDF editor I’ve ever used, so I can’t compare it to anything else, but I know I felt like I got my money’s worth out of it after just one use. I spent all last year jumping through all sorts of complicated, time-consuming, and blurry hoops to reproduce/edit/alter PDFs or to excise just one page out of a 57 page PDF to give to my students. This is like magic. Three clicks and I can create a new PDF containing just one page (or 3 pages or 6 or…whatever) of a larger PDF file; rearranging pages is a matter of click & drag; and I can so easily create an answer key by duplicating a page and then editing it in any color ink I choose. Or, if some of the questions on a PDF document don’t apply to my students, I can select and delete them and then type in whatever my students need. Teachers Pay Teachers has always been a phenomenal resource; this editing tool has allowed me to use documents from there in an entirely new way.
Realy good, but some rough edges - I love the concept of this app, and I absolutely use it daily. But, whenever I attempt to copy an image out of a PDF (to use in a slideshow, for example) the application locks up and I get a beachball. It is annoying, and breaks my workflow. I would love to use PDF Expert exclusively, but this forces me to use Preview for copying images out of PDFs. Edit: lost a star, because despite the fact that I have reviewed this particular product three times, I am still asked (fairly consistently) to rate the app (again… again). Edit 2: Yeh. got asked again.
So very many bugs... - So, first of all, nice functionality. But so many, many bugs. It’s the only app on my mac that still has the dreaded Spinning Beachball when simply navigating around the app itself. (And this happens on a fully pimped 2017 13” MBPro). When saving a file as “Flattened”, it deletes ALL the of the text on a page where any annotations were made. Leaving a completely blank page. I could go on; but heading back to ‘Preview’; it’s not as pretty or as functional, but it works. The app coders need to step up their testing game. It’s a great app to ‘read’ information on; lousy to actually edit PDF’s.
Ok, but - A simple thing like merging files should be easy. It is with PDF Expert, except for the fact that it will not allow you to dictate the order in which multiple files merge. I hate that! Other than that it works pretty well for creating and modifying .pdf documents.
