Teacher Review

Upon opening the application, the user is shown the home dashboard with a variety of different options. The main functions are displayed at the bottom which includes; Documents, Scanner, Network and Settings. The top functions change according to the option chosen at the bottom.

Documents - Within this area, the user can see recent documents and folders. These items can be displayed by sorting, recent and favourites using the top options. Items can be displayed as folders or single documents. It is noted that the developers have included a ‘Quickstart Guide’ in PDF of course. This is ideal and we suggest that new users read this guide as the application has many features and options. The ‘Edit’ option in the top right allows the user to add a new folder, copy a document/folder, move a document/folder, delete a document/folder, compress a document/folder or favourite a document. The’+’ icon within the section allows the user to create a new PDF, import from the clipboard, images, DropBox or from the current device. The interface is clean and easy to navigate even with a vast amount of features.

Scanner - The scanner features requires access to the device's camera and offers two main options. The option to ‘Scan’ which provides a picture of the document scanned or the option to ‘OCR’ (Optical Character Recognition) which will capture the text from the document in an editable format. Both these features work incredibly well and the text capture is highly accurate. Both these formats are stored and displayed within the ‘Scanner’ and ‘Document’ menus. Once the scanned item has been selected the application provides a number of other fantastic features. These include; image rotation, cropping, PDF conversion, image enhancement, OCR and many more. We loved the fact that the OCR version of the scanned document can be read out to the user in over 50 different languages!

Network - This feature allows the user to connect an share with a variety of different networks. These include; DropBox, Google Drive, One Drive, Evernote, and more.

The ‘Settings’ menu allows the user to personalise the application even further allowing the user to contact the developers, edit the PDF reader format, file viewer, photo quality, speech and much more. Once again, the features offered here and exceptional.

One of the features that we really enjoyed within this application and makes it stand out from similar apps is the ability to fill PDF forms out with interactive field texts, checkboxes, radio buttons and more. Adding a personal signature to a document is also another feature that makes the app truly unique. This is excellent for those who are working remotely and require a signature to authenticate a document.  

Other features within the application include; Night mode for long time reading, annotation tools such as highlighters, underline and strikethrough. Watermark stamps such as Approved, Not Approved, confidential and conversion formats such as PDF, JPG and PNG.

 

Review iMac Platform

Making use of the larger screen this piece of software is presented well, easy to navigate and include a number of other features that are not available on the mobile platform.

Importing a saved PDF gives the user access to a number of features displayed in the menu system at the top of the page.

The ‘Tools’ icon includes:

Scroll tool, magnifying tool, highlight, strikethrough, underline, freehand, adding a text box, adding a note, shapes, arrows, lines, and adding links. We particularly like the stamp feature for added a chosen stamp to the document such as Approved, Draft, witness etc. 

There are also other options to add a picture, add a signature and the ability to add a table within the PDF document. All of the above features are supported by a further menu that will allow you to alter the characteristics of the chosen tool such as colour, size, font, tables size, fill and many more.

The ‘Page Edit’ includes:

Insert, append, replace, extract, spit, rotate, reverse, paste, copy and delete. Once again all of these functions are intuitive and easy to use.

The ‘Editor’ includes:

Insert, merge, split, compress, security, watermark, background, header & footer and Bates Numbers. Once again all of these options provide further menus to edit the document in more detail such as margin settings, left/right/centre position and fonts and colour.

The ‘Converter’ tool enables the user to convert the PDF document into a number of other formats such as word, HTML, text, JPG, PNG and PDF.

The ‘Form’ Tool enables the user to create a form within the PDF these include radio buttons, check boxes, buttons, signatures and much more.

Further features within this platform include OCR (Optical Character Recognition) that extracts the text from the document, taking a snapshot of the document and document cropping.

There are many PDF reader applications on the market and this is one of the best. Although the application is a paid app it is worth every penny. The developers can be commended for the versatility of the app and the vast amount of features and options it provides the user. The application is available on iOS and Android platforms as well as Windows and Mac platforms. ‘PDF Reader Pro - Sign, Edit PDF’ comes highly recommended by The EducationalAppStore.com.
