PDF Expert for iOS

There are a number of powerful PDF Applications for the Mac that allow you to do just about anything with your PDFs. Many of these applications were first developed on MacOS and later ported over to iOS in a non-feature complete version. For those who work with iOS devices primarily, this made it more difficult to work with PDFs with the tools they were familiar with on the Mac.

PDF Expert 7 is a full-featured PDF application that was first released for iOS and has since added features to the place where a MacOS version was released! In this screencast, Todd walks you through all of the features of PDF Expert 7 including the built-in file manager, the many ways to customize how you view your PDFs, the tools available for working with your PDFs like annotations, editing, and filling in forms, and the various search, export, and security options built into the application.
