  • Great App

    By BlueKelt
    Have been using this app for a while now for all my magazine storage. I know it does much more than I need it for but it also works well for my needs. Very good for accessing files online and transferring them into your library.
  • Good App but

    By JPD Oxon
    So much hard work when they update app in a major way as my files become unobtainable and have to be retrieved in a way that is a lot of work. Please make each app update such that no files are incompatible or unobtainable in the updated version.
  • Latest update awful

    By Marti44
    The latest update to this app has rendered it useless. Constantly crashes and will no longer sync.
  • Just brilliant but shame can’t rotate video on phone

    By Robinsos
    As above this is an excellent app with all sorts of network connections to other devices file systems supported. However it’s weird it doesnt allow support to simply rotate a video. Please can you add? Also possibly good to have skip back/forward too... please! Thanks
  • It crashes every time since update

    By Speakie-guitarwizzard!!
    It has stopped working all together since the last update. Will have to look for a different app if it's not sorted today. I need this app for work. It has really let me down. It crashes every time I open a PDF or try to sync... please help
  • Had come to rely on this app...big mistake!!!

    By Ballistic Vic
    Used to be a great app. I had come to rely on it to manage leases, contracts, budgets, and other important docs. Big mistake! The old version of GoodReader is incompatible with iOS 11 making migration of legacy documents to the new version impossible. So my document archive is now lost...goodbye forever GoodReader. Hello iCloud!
  • Back on track, thank you developer.

    By An Independent Reviewer
    Thank you developer for restoring my faith in this app. Google Drive now works again and a new version, free of charge !!, is on the way.
  • Brilliant App just stopped working properly.

    By Richard Poynter
    Don’t get me wrong. This is a great app. I rely on it completely. But that makes it particularly difficult when an update ruins its functionality. The latest upgrade is supposed to *cure* connectivity problems with Dropbox. But I didn’t have any such problems until the latest update was automatically installed, and now I do. And yes, I’ve done all the usual things such as resetting my iPad etc. So! please could I have a downdate? At the moment, it ought to be one star because it no longer works properly. However, in recognition of what a good app it was, and in the hope that it will be again, three stars.
  • Needs better integration for Apple Pencil

    By Hossam-ElDin
    It is a very good app for managing files and in particular viewing PDFs. But one thing is missing that would make it a great app, is better integration for Apple Pencil. Now it does not differentiate between it and your finger though a lot more basic apps are able to do so.
  • Outdated

    By loop123
    It used to be excellent all in one. PDF reader/annotator and file manager. It was sort of revolutionary for iOS. Now it still works but it feels clunky, dated and unintuitive in a desperate need for an update. It’s a pain to annotate with so many clicks required that often it’s simply not worth the time. It’s freehand is poor, shapes are primitive and colour management is a chore. Please UPDATE !
