PDF Expert by Readdle Reviews

Wendala Alistar

Not good  Wendala Alistar  1 star

I don’t like the changes! I can’t find my files!!!


Super Tool for Editing/Merging PDF documents  tunesmith  5 star

I have owned PDF Expert for some time, but recently purchased the editor add-in so I could edit/merge PDF documents for a Medicare Appeal. The app far surpassed my expectations and did everything that I used to perform with Adobe Acrobat DC at a fraction of the cost. Great job to the developers. Highly recommended.


Great App - Pro Upgrade isn’t working  runyonski  1 star

If you’re wondering why nobody is upgrading...it may be because the upgrade option is non responsive.


Holy cow, this app rules!  tpf1952  5 star

I don’t usually take the time to praise an app; I just expect it to work. But PDF Expert is really a terrific app. I frequently have to share PDF documents with clients or vendors. Sometimes other IOS apps that generate PDF documents leave little or no room for making quick revisions or plugging in a signature. PDF Expert changes all that. What a time saver! This app is simply awesome. I bow my head in thanks. Get this app!


Uninstalled!  dp0123  1 star

Apparently, it was too hard for the devs to remove that persistent black bar at the page bottom on the latest iphones. Oh well! Time to vote with my feet!


Poor technical support  CrashyAppy  1 star

The tech support staff is horrible. They won’t even answer simple questions and rather demand that you release private information in order for them to “diagnose” a problem — rather than answering a question or simply outlining the procedure. They are lazy or retarded, and just want to check the box saying they’ve closed a ticket (if they can’t get and sell your private information).


Does not work with large PDFs  hungrycookie  2 star

I bought this application to work with large PDFs, but it continually crashes. If that’s what you’re looking for (as a student, opening textbooks), this application is not the right one for you.


Problems  Cloudprincessruth  5 star

In the middle of underlining or highlighting text it suddenly extends the underlining or highlighting into the next column of print. It won’t erase or right itself, so I shut the iPad off and start again. Still I have no control over where those lines go! This was badly spent money for an app. I might as well work from a hard copy because the time spent juggling the annotating is the same as if I hand wrote the material I am working on!


Bought months ago, can’t use  cactushackedus  1 star

I paid for this app many months ago, and now it seems to be unusable unless I pay again? Not cool. I understand that maintaining an app takes time and money but that’s not how the App Store is supposed to work.


Best PDF app ever made  MichaelJayBills  5 star

Thank you


Two time charge  Navv's  3 star

Hello, how i can contact to your customer care. They charge me 2 times. One when I purchased app again when i edit something. I don’t know how your system works. I am not happy. Thanks


Great pdf editor  ykz22  4 star

Does everything I need a pdf editor to do, in the most intuitive way. Just one hiccup is that it seems to randomly crash occasionally.


Waste app  Bgurram  1 star

I need to edit PDF file now i see in app upgrade 14$ to edit so what hell it’s


BRILLIANT  Gtreatest  5 star

5 years ago a friend told me to try PDF expert When I started using this app she gave me a run through of the many things that could be done it and I haven’t looked back since


Excellent Application  PeteMcA  5 star

I would like to say that this application helps me in many ways at home and at work to manage documents and submit forms in emails rather than the need to print and write on them by hand.


Connectivity Issues  JarrahCy  1 star

iPad connected to internet but PDF expert not connecting

Zinio rules!

The best 5 star App on my phone and iPad EXCEPT!!!  Zinio rules!  3 star

What more can I say...PDF Expert is the best APP that I have on my phone and iPad and Mac Pro. I use it daily in my lessons and it's what I use for all drafting and feedback work for my classes. Marking is a breeze with PDF Expert. I take all my classes marking away with me on my marking weekend and I don't have to carry around overflowing briefcases of work. If you're a teacher then you'll love this. HOWEVER Should you have family sharing and purchase the upgrade it appears to me that you will have purchase this $14.99 on each of your families devices that are part of “family sharing”. Poor form READDLE. Have three children and you have to outlay a few cents (3 pennies for my American cousins) less that $45. Come on Readdle, fix this money grabbing enterprise! You lose two whole stars!!!!


Upgrade to Pro  wambi  1 star

I just wasted $14.99 on a strange upgrade option which does very little. I had one page of a document landscape which I needed to rotate. It couldn’t even do that and is meant by the name to be a profession editor. ScannerPro can do it so you have the code to use. The upgrade is just a another way to exploit loyal users.


After 8 years of PDF apps, PDF Expert #1  MesmerX  5 star

Read thousands of pages through PDF Expert. Made thousands of lines of annotations, highlights, and Apple Pencil diagrams throughout the pages. Also use PDF expert every day in class to present the material on Projector (via Screen Mirroring) to class. We downloaded every popular PDF editor/reader in store through the years. Including new GoodReader 5. Without question, PDF Expert is light years ahead no matter how many copy-cats arrive in hopes to grab share of profits. PDF Expert makes sense in every way for the brain, and makes learning a joy from PDF texts.


Love It  Netski82  5 star

Have been using for many years now and it’s great. Updates keep making it better too. In the future would love to be able to paste pictures in side notes


Really like it, but only one thing that’s getting on my nerve.  kairan1108  4 star

I have been using this app for a very long time, mostly for studying. It is a really good app, and I would have not been able to study well without this app. The only thing that I’m complaining of is its occasional crashing. I highlighted sentences and made many notes, and suddenly the app crashes, erasing all of the highlights And notes I have made for several mintues ago. If that is a one time event, no big deal. Unfortunately, I think the app is crashing once per approximatley 30 minutes of usage. It is a very good app, and I will continue to use it, but I really hope this problem could be fixed.


Had to spend more for pro version  kgdocco  3 star

I purchased the 3 pack bundle in order to edit text in a pdf file and figured the printing and converter were extras I may or may not use, but were a good price. Then, however, I discovered that I couldn’t edit text without purchasing the PRO version for almost the same amount as the bundle. So far, PRO app does what I need, but very disappointed at pricing. As long as software is as robust as other reviewers say, it will still be a good purchase. Just hope I don’t find any other hidden fees.


E-Docs  Neen12451  5 star

As a person who has to fill out e-docs on a regular basis in the field this program is simply invaluable. I really can’t think of one issue I’ve ever had with it. It does EVERYTHING I need it to do.


Can't connect to Dropbox business folders  bman3346  1 star

This app has great annotation abilities but I am flabbergasted that it can't open files in Dropbox business accounts. Can't you make this a priority for this of us using your app for business?

Frustruated student

So disappointing  Frustruated student  1 star

It keeps creating a second/third/fourth file instead of replacing the original file with the annotated one. 80% of the times it creates a second file, and 20% of the times it covers the original version. I don’t know why. I haven’t found the pattern yet. I’m in a professional program and I use all sorts of annotation apps all the time for note-taking. I’ve just spent 3 hours on one of my slides sets, and then I closed the tab like I usually do, and expect that all the changes would be synced, but, nope, not even a duplicated file, not even in my recent files. It never happened to any of my other annotation apps. I even upgraded to the pro version. So disappointing.


Bad for pdf file > 90 Mb  Quoc29  2 star

My pdf file is 90Mb. I usually take note and annotate in this file. After couple days, some pages of my pdf file turn to blank page, some pages don’t show up the note or highlight.


Use to be great.. UPDATE  Stephmc1227  3 star

UPDATE: For a while, this app was working great again. No freezes, no problems at all. Within the last couple of days, it has started freezing again. It is so frustrating. I have used this app for years and loved it. But if the freezing continues, I will be looking for a different, similar app to use instead. PLEASE FIX... AGAIN Until this most recent update. I have used this app for years.. and have loved it. Probably my most used app. But since the recent update it is now constantly freezing and crashing. Please fix ASAP

mad customer who paid for this

I need a refund! Or you fix it!  mad customer who paid for this  2 star

This app keeps crashing for days. I can’t believe it has so many good reviews. I like the design, and it was good for 2 days, and after that I can’t use it!


Custom colors!  Taylor5678910111213  4 star

How is this a feature on the Mac version but not the iPad version?! Love this app in every other way but please give us more color options

rat sandwich

Crippled App which wants more money than what you paid.  rat sandwich  1 star

$9 dollard for what? so I can have the opportunity to pay ANOTHER $9 to actually edit the PDF? Seriously, the App requires you buy an additional "Pro Upgrade" to "unlock" the "extra features" .... Which I "though" I was "Buying" from the beginning... I am PI55ED.


Brilliant  Txe2a  5 star

Use this a lot especially for forms and storage of essential paperwork. We are virtually paperless now.
