Hi, I’m Skylar. I recently switched to using GoodReader for PDFs, and I really, really like a lot of its feature. It can pull annotations from almost any program. It can annotate PDFs which is a hugely valuable feature in itself. And it will also add something called PDF Reflow. Which is really pretty neat. What that does, since a PDF is actually an image, is Reflow the image into text which makes it editable. Pretty wild. That also allows you to manipulate the text or change the viewing aspect of the text so that it's larger or smaller. So that you can change the font size essentially. Let's check it out. If I open up GoodReader I've got a PDF here. So this is a PDF and while I can't increase the size of the font as you would like you were typing a document, I can pinch to zoom. And once I pinch to zoom you can change the page and it'll maintain the same zoom ratio. It makes it a lot better for reading than iBooks that changes back to its normal aspect every time you swipe to the next page. Which is really annoying if you're reading a long PDF. So that alone makes GoodReader a really, really attractive option for reading PDF's. Now let's check out the PDF Reflow feature. It's this button right here. Tap it and you get something that looks like this. So this is actually an editable text document and if I tap the Gear I can go to font size, and I can change that to whatever I'd like. There we go. So we've just looked at two different ways to increase or decrease the apparent size of the font in GoodReader. Either you pinch to zoom or PDF Reflow. Thanks for watching. I’m Skylar.
