Pretty good. I like iAnnotate better though for my purposes...much better handwriting and annotation tools, especially with the hand rest option in it. So it's better for making quick annotation and notes in my PDFs on the iPad in college classes with the pin point pens than Goodreader, but Goodreader is good too. I just use Goodreader on my iPhone for looking at PDFs.

So it makes reading a .pdf something close to reading a .epub?

Purchased it. I want to know if what I've been hearing is true about this app.

To those who've used it- is this better than Readdle's Documents?

I've tried several pdf readers and this is my go-to.

I prefer Documents more..but probably cause I used it first, used it longer and got used to how it works. I like the way Documents handle the table of contents for the PDFs that I tried. Documents can also act as a "file manager" similar to Goodreader. To me, if you have Documents and are happy with it...then you don't need Goodreader. Of course since it's so cheap..doesn't hurt to pick up Goodreader now since it's so cheap.

Edit: That said...Goodreader has a lot of features that's useful. There's seems to be neat features to create new PDF from old ones and powerful editing/note taking features.

Using the new version of Goodreader a bit more, I'm liking it better than iAnnotate now

Had the original and used for years. I paid 4 for the upgrade 4. It was worth it. Fast and powerful. Great for downloading docs of web in zip and opening them.
