PDF Expert 2.2 – one more reason to replace a laptop with the iPad

24 Feb

Readdle today updated its cutting edge application for editing PDF forms and annotating PDF documents.

01pdf

PDF Expert 2.2 is now able to flatten signature, filled forms data, and annotations, making it possible to protect PDF files from editing and view all annotations within any PDF reader application.

02pdf

There are a few reasons that lawyers, attorneys or real estate agents might want to flatten a document: to prevent PDF file from editing data inside it, finalize the signature on the document and ensure that all annotations can be viewed with any PDF reader application.

07pdf

The latest version of PDF Expert for iPad makes the flattening process flawless, taking just a single tap to flatten a PDF file before emailing it.

03pdf

04pdf

One of the long-standing benefits of the PDF format is that it allows users to add notes, comments and highlights to PDF file. PDF Expert extended this capability making PDF annotations editable on the iPad. While lawyers tend to protect document from being changed, professors, students and medicals might well need the ability to edit existing annotations. Another feature that can come in handy is emailing PDF files along with the annotations summary to overview quickly all essential mark ups in the document.

“Finalized signature and field data are essential for lawyers and real estate agents. Preview summary of created annotations is a great way for students to share necessary information” said Igor Zhadanov, Readdle CEO. “In PDF Expert 2.2 all these features migrated from the desktop to make the iPad a viable laptop substitute.”

Pricing and Availability:

PDF Expert for iPad 2.2 is available on the Apple App Store at $9.99 to new customers and as a free update for existing PDF Expert for iPad owners.
