I enjoy using this app, I have found it works great with multiple pdf files and is really easy to edit, I haven't figured out how to use it to it's full functions, I have downloaded pdf books and I've found typo errors and was able to correct them within the book that was awesome to find out. I also enjoy the ability to text and move the text where I need it. I unfortunately am unable to give 5 starts at this moment due to the fact I am still discovering the app and so far haven't found bad stuf

Excellent and cost effective alternative to Adobe. Lots of improvements over the past couple of years. My only beef is that the version type is updated so often that buying a "perpetual" license is almost meaningless - you pretty much have to upgrade to the latest version yearly or more just to have access to all the features. Smaller incremental updates to stretch the effective usefulness of each version to at least a few years would make it a far greater value.

One of the best PDF editors out there, been using since 2020. However, I'm starting to see ads on the Android app, looks like it was a new decision by the company. As a subscriber, this is unacceptable. Stop being so greedy that it affects the user experience. Update: lowered it one star. Mobile has a separate subscription now. When I signed up for the Windows plan, mobile app was supposed to be included. Then they added ads to the app, and now a separate subscription. No thank you.
