Goodreader PDF App Updated

GoodReader[1]The best PDF app for iPad and iPhone was updated today with a bunch of bug fixes and new features.In addition to direct support for loading files from iCloud, Goodreader also gained a couple new features which iPhone 6 owners will appreciate.  The iPhone version of Goodreader now supports a double-page view for PDF files, and there is an option for page rotation (landscape to portrait and back).

What's more, Goodreader also supports more  external drives, specifically models made by Toshiba.

And last but not least, users can now lock and unlock either the app or specific files using only their fingerprint. The app now supports the Touch ID sensor which is integrated into the latest iPad and iPhone models, enabling users to have even more ways to accidentally lock themselves out of their files (I am a pessimist).

You can find the app in iTunes.



  • another option of handling files from iCloud Drive - opening and annotating files without copying them into GoodReader's local storage, in addition to the existing Import option
  • Touch ID - use your fingerprints to unlock the entire GoodReader app or its individual files and folders. This feature needs to be explicitly enabled in app settings.
  • support for Toshiba external drives: Wireless SSD and Wireless Adapter

    Some iPad-specific features adopted for the large screens of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus:

  • grid view for file browser - files can now be presented as icons with larger previews
  • double-page layout for PDF files
  • page rotation for PDF files

    Bug fixes:

  • fixed an issue that prevented GoodReader folder from appearing in iCloud Drive on some Mac computers
  • fixed an issue that kept the status bar visible during video playback
  • fixed an issue that caused occasional crashes when writing typewriter notes with Korean font

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
