Needs work.
First off, I love the fact that this app is free. Kudos to that. As a basic PDF annotator it's ok. The use of the pen with different colors and shapes. Moving about the PDF document flows very easily.... However, there are some major drawbacks that I hope the developer can address in future updates to make this a better app. For example: 1. Cannot view the PDF annotations made in this app in other PDF readers. Does not make sense to annotate if you cannot view your notes in other readers like adobe or preview.. 2. Cannot annotate by typing. The developer promises to bring this in future updates, but it's still lacking. 3. Cannot search keywords within documents. 4. Cannot email single pages, only whole document. But if you annotate it, they can't read it anyways, so why bother... 5. Cannot delete or add pages, or duplicate them for that matter. 6. ADS!!! Becomes annoying and is at the bottom so at times will inadvertently press the ad button when trying to view bookshelf. These are just a few major drawbacks to this app. The developer promises to bring a paid version minus ads, but unless he tackles these major issues, I'm afraid this app is just not up to speed with the competitors.

Almost perfect.
I have been searching for a good app to annotate pdf's that I read for school and so far this is the best I've found! Even over paid apps! The controls with your finger makes things so easy and doesn't interrupt the flow of reading and the multiple colored highlighting is key! The only thing I'd like to see is a more organized library. I cant always tell which PDF is which on the bookshelf. It would also be nice to be able to organize several different bookshelves for different classes/subjects.

Nice features but text not so clear
like all the annotating features but the text is not as clear as iBooks making it hard to read.

would be better?
first, it is good, but not so much. i think it would be much better if adds on the bottom line wouldn't have existed. cause it is so repulsive, and i am getting disturbed whenever i see it there. i can buy the product in which there is no adds.

Upgrade spoiled this app for me
I had been happy using the previous version of this app before I was encouraged to upgrade as I had experienced a few app crashes when opening some large pdf files but now, I can't even view most of my old files that had no issues with the previous version! It is truly annoying as I loved this app, warts and all, prior to this so-called upgrade but now I'm at a loss as to how to salvage my files - I have made notes on some of my study material and now I can't open it, the app just crashes. It would have been a consolation if there was some way to save the files uploaded to a different location but this app does not provide that feature. Perhaps you guys should think about including a 'Save To' option in the next rendition of this. Yes, it's a free app but it was a good free app that I wouldn't have minded paying money for prior to the 1.0.0 version but I am definitely grateful it was free now cos I would be more royally pissed if I had paid money and it can't do anything with it! Fix the bugs!

Must read
I got this app expecting very little concerning it was a free app but quickly learned differently. I import files from dropbox and have no problems doing so. The controls are a little tricky, however, and are sometimes hard to handle. All in all, I would pay money for this app. P.s. It has also never crashed on me.
