PDF's are magical documents that allow anyone to do some pretty neat things; such as creating documents to sign, give presentations, or just protect a document to make it hard for someone else to "accidentally" mess it up. But as eBooks, there's always been a bit of limitation in terms of what most PDF readers and PDF documents themselves are able to offer. Likewise, PDFs have always had limitations when it comes to using them in presentations. That's where Infinite PDF comes into play; a really clean PDF Document reader that also allows users to do so much more with their document.
The app's main feature is that it allows users to view other pages side-to-side as well as up and down, with page changes made by using traditional swipes on one's iOS device. This actually offers people an interesting new option to modify their PDF documents by creating subpages, or different ways to swipe into a different part of an ebook or document. As the app itself points out, this is useful for anything from books and comics - giving users the ability to see alternative art or notes on that page - to swiping between the pages of a presentation that may present more elaborate data.
As far as Infinite PDF goes as just a straight-up PDF reader, it looks rather clean. With the added swiping ability it gives PDFs a whole new power. Not every page may have pages below it, but users can simply find out by looking at a map of the document.
Alternatively, the app makes it super-easy to modify one's PDFs to have the option to swipe down. Infinite PDF uses an easy drag-and-drop option to move entire sections, or even individual pages, anywhere the user chooses. Of course, using these modified documents in apps that don't allow for this unique usage may be met with disastrous results.
Infinite PDF is a great tool for anyone using PDFs for both presenting as well as reading ebooks in new and interesting ways. Documents can also be exported into other utilities such as Powerpoint or Keynote to help the business-oriented individual. Alternatively, Infinite PDF can just do some really cool things with PDF documents - giving them a little spice while organizing PDFs. Infinite PDF couldn't be a more fitting name as it presents users with an infinite amount of possibilities.
