(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Good.iWare today announced the launch ofGoodReader 4, introducing powerful PDF Page Management features, providing users with many new ways to view, share and organize their documents. GoodReader 4 is also the first universal version of GoodReader which will work on both iPhone and iPad.
While GoodReader originally found its fame for the way it handled very large PDF files and for its “Swiss Army Knife of iOS” feature-set, GoodReader 4 delivers the greatest number of ways yet to manage PDF files on a mobile device. Until now, GoodReader users have been able to annotate PDFs, highlight and mark-up text, create notes, text boxes and freehand drawings, draw lines, arrows and boxes, and share entire documents in every way imaginable. Now, GoodReader 4 users will have the ability to do virtually anything they’d like with documents on an iPhone or iPad.
“This is a really a huge milestone for our company, with the long-awaited released of GoodReader 4,” said Yuri Selukoff, president of Good.iWare. “GoodReader 4 is the launching point of the next generation of our famous ‘killer app,’ taking editing of PDF files on a mobile device to the next level.”
Now iPhone and iPad users will be able to:
- Insert blank pages for notes and drawings, solving the problem of not having enough space to annotate or draw images on a document
- Rearrange pages in a document
- Rotate individual pages – or even all of them
- Delete any pages from a document
- Extract individual pages as separate files, and split PDF files into halves – enabling a sub-set of pages to be shared as its own file
- Email individual pages rather than the entire document
- Append pages from other PDF files
Along with introducing PDF Page Management, GoodReader 4 makes the PDF page selection process easier. With its clean, un-cluttered screen design, users can scroll a list of large page previews and see the pages before selecting a particular one for reading.
“Usability has always been one of main priorities for us, and with GoodReader 4 we’ve been able to squeeze all of these magnificent new features without cluttering the app’s interface,” said Selukoff. “We’ve even managed to fit this entire new suite of features onto a tiny iPhone screen while making everything simple to access.”
GoodReader 4 is a paid upgrade, though it will be available on the App Store for a limited time at US$2.99 to give existing users a chance to upgrade at a discount. To simplify the transition from an older version to GoodReader 4, the new version comes equipped with a Migration Assistant. With a single click of a button, users will be able to migrate all files and settings from an older version into GoodReader 4.
Once the introductory period is over, GoodReader 4 will be available on the App Store for US$6.99.
The existing separate versions of GoodReader for iPad and iPhone, currently 3.21.0 and 3.21.1 respectively, will still be available for those who do not wish to upgrade at this time.
GoodReader is known throughout the world as the top document reader for viewing, navigating and annotating large PDF documents on an iPhone and iPad. GoodReader aims to deliver the most file viewing and sharing options, while remaining simple to use. With GoodReader 4, users not only have the ability to do virtually anything they’d like with documents on an iPhone or iPad, they also enjoy unequaled file downloading and sharing with all major networking protocols and cloud services.
Often referred to as “the missing file system for iOS,” GoodReader is also able to organize thousands of files into an easily manageable hierarchy of folders and files.
GoodReader has also set the standard for iOS document readers in the enterprise, offering a high level of document security and synchronization with remote servers.
