Readdle Turns 6 and Drops Prices to Celebrate

Posted by Rob Rich on August 5th, 2013

Not everyone will be familiar with Readdle, but the developer has been around ever since 2007 and enjoying a steadily-increasing user base ever since. What began as a single book reading app with a handful of followers has since turned into a large collection of useful apps (scanning, printing, reading, etc) with over 16 million downloads. To celebrate, Readdle is dropping their prices for a limited time.

At the moment you can download any, or all, of the following apps at a significantly discounted price:

Scanner Pro - Originally $6.99, now $1.99.
Printer Pro iPhone - Originally $4.99, now $1.99.
Printer Pro iPad - Originally $6.99, now $1.99.
Calendars+ - Originally $6.99, now $1.99.
PDF Converter - Originally $6.99, now $1.99.

I find PDF Expert to be really useful. It's great for organizing, editing, and even digitally signing of documents. The iPhone version is available for free for the next few hours and is normally $9.99. Grab it!

PDF Expert Gets Even Better With Recent Update

iPad App - Designed for iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: ONE OF THE BEST :: Read Review »

Like it or not, the PDF document format is here to stay.  Originally created as Adobe's proprietary attempt to undercut Microsoft's document format, the PDF has not only become widespread, but in some cases it has even become the defacto standard.  One such case is when documents need to be filled out and filed on the web.  Unfortunately, the were no options to handle this kind of interaction on the iPad until PDF Expert came around.

The app was so well received that it managed to land a four and a half star rating here at 148Apps, in our official review.  Along with the obvious ability to read PDFs on the iPad, some of the other standout features included the ability to both highlight and notate the text, as well as efficiently using the real estate available on the iPad.  But the application's developer, Readdle, wasn't willing to rest on their laurels, despite the product's stellar launch.

In fact, they just released an update that address a number of different issues that were brought to their attention by already satisfied customers.  Here are some of the additions that were made:

  • Static Adobe LiveCycle forms are supported.

  • "Submit" and "Email" actions works.

  • Sugarsync support

  • More than 100 small improvements related to sync, annotations and forms.

PDF Expert allows to submit values filled into PDF form fields with full compliance with Adobe specification. Mid-sized and large businesses rely heavily on this feature of PDF forms to capture the data from many people, like customers, students or focus groups.

Desktop tools like Adobe Acrobat Pro or LiveCycle allows anyone to create such form and embed "Submit" button directly into the page. Once user fills out the values, he or she only need to tap the button to send filled data to form creator.

As much as we loved the app the first time around, you can bet that these updates will help further forge PDF Expert into a well rounded product.  It is thanks to feedback from you, their customers, that aid in making products that much better.  So give yourself a pat on the back, and this irreplaceable app a download.  We're sure you will find it just as useful as we did.
