    By celiotp
    I can’t live without my Goodreader 4, and it’s working fine for me on IOS 11. Can anyone verify if it continues to Work on IOS 12?
  • Wonderful

    By RiaMae83
    This is the app that I use my iPad for. As a knitter, it’s perfect! I can keep all of my patterns at my fingertips and make notes as needed. I’ve never had a technical issue with it.
  • Very happy camper!

    I recently downloaded GoodReads and I am probably only making limited use of it, but it has solved one of my dilemmas. When I am traveling in somewhat remote areas where cell coverage is sketchy and I cannot use a mobile hotspot to email files accessible by and to my iPhone, I can now simply and easily transfer important files from my PC to my phone for backup storage via its synch/charging cord. For some reason, there is some Bluetooth incompatibility between my laptop and phone. Prior to GoodReads, emailing these files to myself was my only option, and as previously stated, an option that wasn’t always available. So for me, the usefulness of this app far outweighs its cost. Thanks, GoodReads!

    This app is dead. They’ve been promising a ‘huge’ update for 2 years—asserting they’re working around the clock. Must be a huge clock. DO NOT BUY THIS APP. Get PDF Expert or Documents by Readdle.
  • Abandoned (I've now moved on completely)..

    By a student and reviewer
    This used to be good back around iOS 8 but it is now old and doesn't support the new features such as split screen and Apple Pencil that came out in 2016, already 2.5 years ago. Also the inking is very poor as if you create two small marks far away from each other on the page it turns them into one massive rectangular object with the min and max x,y points of the marks. This app has been abandoned maybe because they are still getting so many good reviews they think they don't have to do anything else. Maybe they are afraid of losing those 1479 reviews that average to 4.5 stars (like what other, much more courageous, app developers are facing). Maybe they should change the name to "oodreader" for out-of-date reader. This app is abandoned despite what will probably be a boilerplate reply at some point from someone saying the contrary and that nothing could be further from the truth. I can imagine lots of things further from the truth than the idea that this app appears to be abandoned. That this app is abandoned is not only very close but is right at the truth. I've now moved on from goodreader and found a new app that suites my needs. Also I think many of the reviews are "fake reviews". One of them recently (June 25th 2017) said that the app keeps getting better. This app hasn't changed in almost three years!!
  • Great App, I’ve being using it for years!!!

    In my humble opinion, the best out there, as a graduate student I do all my reading thorough this app. To the developer, could you please consider these two upgrades: 1. Copy and Paste of notes, either in writing or typing, between different documents. Very useful for readers like me that do many readings at the same time. 2. A way to sync documents between different devices (in my case I have three iPads) so that the files keep updated between devices. It is kind of tedious to send files back & forward between devices. Other than that, I would give this app 7 stars if I could...excellent for academic research, you can go through college almost paperless thank to it... 👍🏻👍🏻
  • Update?

    By Chris31390
    Eight months abandoned, any word on when it’s being updated?
  • Disappointing upgrade

    By Schreibs1
    1. I had to purchase this app for the second time. 2. I could not transfer my files from the old version. 3. I can no longer access all of my hundreds of files on the old app.
