The popular feature-rich PDF reader app GoodReader has just received a new feature-rich update. First off, the latest update to GoodReader introduces a new iOS 7-inspired interface. While not exactly flat, this new interface, which has a new tool layout, bears a design that's more in line with the visual style of the latest iteration of Apple's mobile operating system. The update also brings full compatibility with iOS 7 and faster PDF rendering for certain PDF files. Furthermore, it introduces a new and improved audio player. Now, GoodReader's audio player operates in the background, letting you read your files while listening to audio. The new GoodReader update also includes the following enhancements:
The update also adds a new path bar on the app's iPad edition. Located at the top, this bar allows for easier navigation through large file structures. The new versions of GoodReader for iPad and GoodReader for iPhone are available now in the App Store as free updates or as new downloads for $4.99 each. Both apps are compatible with devices running iOS 5.0 or later. GoodReader is included in AppAdvice's PDF Readers For iPad, PDF Annotation Apps, and Best Secure File Locker Apps AppGuides, as well as in AppAdvice's iPad Apps for the Workplace, Accessing Servers From Your iPad, and Apps For Comic Geeks AppLists.
