updated 07:50 pm EDT, Mon October 4, 2010

Annotations include text, drawing, highlighting

PDFs come into focus on the new update to GoodReader and the new Readdle App, PDF Expert for iPad. Good.iWare's GoodReader, available for both iPad and also iPhone -- as a separate app -- offers reading capabilities for PDFs, text files and Office and iWork files. It also focuses on reading extremely large PDF or text files, including those over 1GB in size.

GoodReader's new version -- 3.0.0 for iPad, 3.0.1 for iPhone -- adds annotation capability for PDFs, supporting text, freehand drawings and other notations like underlines, highlights and strikeouts. GoodReader can also now extract files from PDFs and can select text on a PDF page.

Readdle has launched its own PDF reader, PDF Expert for iPad. It can read, search and annotate PDF documents, allowing users to mark text, create notes and highlights, strike through text and draw on the page. Annotations created in PDF Expert can be edited on a Mac using Acrobat Reader or Preview. The new app supports connecting directly to Dropbox, GoogleDocs and MobileMe iDisk to share documents.

GoodReader apps for iPad and for iPhone are each $1 on the iTunes App Store, but will soon increase in price to $3 due to the added functionality. PDF Expert for iPad debuts at $5 on the App Store.
