GoodReader Hits v4.0, Adds PDF Editing and Creation Features

goodreader-ipadGoodReader is without a doubt the best PDF app for the iPad and iPhone and it just got better. A new update was rolled out yesterday for this venerable iPad app, and it adds more improvements and new features than you can shake a stick at.

The app has always offered a good reading and editing experience, but now it also lets users do more. The developers at Good.iWare have added new options, including creating a PDF from scratch and inserting new pages into an existing PDF.

Users can also split a PDF into parts, add pages from one PDF to another, delete single pages from a PDF, or share single pages by email. And in addition to the new editing options, the interface in the app has also been polished.

This sounds great, right?

Unfortunately it comes with a price tag. GoodReader 4.0 is a paid update, even for existing users, so we’re going to have to buy it again.

But on the upside, it is on sale right now for $2.99. You can find the app in iTunes.
