+ Copy Files From Mac or PC via Wi-Fi and USB
Use iTunes file sharing to transfer files directly to your iPad or iPhone via USB cable. As an alternative connect your iOS device running PDF Expert via Wi-Fi and operate it like a wireless flash drive. No additional software is required.

+ Save Email Attachments
Open attachments directly from the Mail app. Also, you can open PDF files from any other application on the iPad or iPhone via "Open In..." dialogue.

+ Sync your files with various cloud services
PDF Expert allows you to download and upload files from Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and other services. If you use more than one cloud storage, PDF Expert 5 will handle all of them.

+ Share Files With Your Friends
Email files directly from PDF Expert 5 with all annotations you made.

+ Protect Documents with Password and Encryption
Restrict access to PDF Expert 5 with a password to protect your files from unauthorized reading. Enable iOS Data Protection to encrypt everything while your iPad or iPhone is not in use.

+ Text To Speech
Now you can listen to e-books or audio files on the road or when you don’t feel like reading. PDF Expert 5 intelligently processes PDF books and uses iOS7 text- to-speech API to read them aloud.

And one more thing:

• Review Mode •
The Review Mode allows you to mark up PDF documents in a very special way. Just tap anywhere on the text where you need changes and correct it in the text editor. The text that you delete is marked as removed while everything you add is shown as new text in different colors. Currently available only on iPad.
