PDF Expert 5 Gains Apple Pencil Support, Wireless ‘Readdle Transfer’ Feature [u]


Readdle’s PDF Expert 5 has gained a major update today, bringing support for Apple Pencil for iPad Pro users. Also new is Readdle Transfer, which allows users to seamlessly transfer working from one document on one device to another, as long as they are on the same Wi-Fi network (sounds like AirDrop, but actually works).

What’s New in Version 5.6
**Apple Pencil Support**
Take full advantage of technology that makes writing on documents natural and quick as writing on a sheet of paper. PDF Expert now also fully supports the new iPad Pro 9.7.

Now you can swipe with your finger through pages while using Pencil in the edit mode to make annotations and sketches.

**Introducing Readdle Transfer**
Start working on a document on iPhone/iPad and seamlessly transfer it to your Mac. Or vice versa. PDF Expert saves your time and makes file transfer fast and easy. Enjoy consistent experience across all your devices. Anywhere.

    Shucks, all gone – thanks for the promo chance tho 🙂

  • GAH!

    Arrgh … too slow for the promo!

    I’m betting the free promo codes were all snatched up by a bot, or else there would be at least one or two “thank you”s posted here. Oh well.

    It looks like it’s worth the money to bite the bullet and just buy it. I’ve been on the lookout for a good iPad pdf program.

  • One reader thanked on Twitter.

    You won’t be disappointed, great developers at Readdle. Any issues let me know.
