GoodReader now supports larger reading space on iPhone 6

The larger screens on the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones offers the opportunity for a much better experience for those who read, review and mark-up documents on their devices. With the just-released GoodReader 4.5.0 from Good.iWare, iPhone users will enjoy all the functionality of the world’s top-selling document reader optimized for the larger screens of the latest iPhones.

While the larger screens make reading and annotating documents easier in GoodReader, the new version also provides support for new features introduced in iOS 8, including the ability to import and export files to iCloud Drive. GoodReader has long been recognized as the “missing file manager” for iOS, and the ability to easily move files back and forth with iCloud gives users the most options for syncing and sharing files by any app for iOS.

The new version of GoodReader also supports Handoff, which will enable users to begin reading a document on one device and easily pick up where they left off when they open the document on another device.

“We’re very excited about the larger screens of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus,” said Yuri Selukoff, president of Good.iWare. “GoodReader is all about reading, and the larger the screen, the better the reading. Our hope is more people will spend more time reading and annotating their documents with these two new iPhone models, which means even more possibilities for a reading app such as GoodReader.”

GoodReader delivers the greatest number of ways yet to manage PDF files on a mobile device, providing users the ability to do virtually anything they’d like with documents on an iPhone or iPad. GoodReader users are able to annotate PDFs, highlight and mark-up text, create notes, text boxes and freehand drawings, draw lines, arrows and boxes, and share entire documents in every way imaginable. When GoodReader 4.0.0 was recently launched with Page Management features, users gained the ability to insert blank pages, rearrange, rotate, email and delete pages in a document, and even extract an individual page as a separate file.

GoodReader is known throughout the world as the top document reader for viewing, navigating and annotating large PDF documents on an iPhone and iPad. GoodReader aims to deliver the most file viewing and sharing options, while remaining simple to use. With GoodReader, users not only have the ability to do virtually anything they’d like with documents on an iPhone or iPad, they also enjoy unequaled file downloading and sharing with all major networking protocols and cloud services. GoodReader has also set the standard for iOS document readers in the enterprise, offering a high level of document security and synchronization with remote servers.

GoodReader 4.5.0 is available for a limited time at USD $2.99 on the App Store in the Productivity category. When this promotional period expires, it will return to its regular price of USD $6.99. For more information, visit the Good Reader website.

The New Synopsis App Allows Users To Summarize Any PDF Document

Milestonepoint Technologies JLT announces the recent launch of their Synopsis App, which aims at making the learning process more simple, less manual and more efficient. It’s an iPad app for students that lets users open up and read any PDF document and create notes by highlighting different sections of the text. Users can then modify the notes they have created by adding their own text. This free app then helps users summarize the document that they have read, so that they won’t need to go back to it again. Each individual note can be converted to its own flashcard and there is no need to buy flashcards or manually type and create flashcards.

All of these flashcards can be created on the go, as the user reads through their study material on an iPad. Once each flashcard is saved, they can be viewed on any smartphone, so it’s easy to study from anywhere. Teachers and students can even share the flashcards they have created to make it easy for anyone to access and avoid duplication of work.

Here’s a synopsis of ‘Synopsis’:
* A very simple reader with only the tools a user requires
* Read PDF Documents and highlight important points in the document
* All highlighted points from a PDF document are automatically copied into the Notes Module of Synopsis
* Access the Notes area and fine tune the highlighted notes
* Create manual Notes

* Export it as a PDF file
* Export it as a Notes file that can be shared with colleagues, friends or study mates

* Saving user created Notes as a PDF or as a raw XML file for future use

* Create a backup of the library created

123 Kids Fun Apps releases AUTUMN DESIGNER for iOS and Android

123 Kids Fun Apps is proud to announce today the release of 123 Kids Fun Autumn Designer for iOS and Android platforms; a welcomed addition to their extremely large library of learning games for children ages 3 to 8. Autumn Designer is a one of a kind, well designed and incredibly versatile autumn themed image creating program containing an enormous amount of content and features. All of this wrapped up in a fun and easy to use interface which is sure to give hours and hours of fun, replay and educational value to kids, educators and parents alike.

Autumn Designer has been designed to be not only eye catching, but intuitive. Within a couple of minutes, the menus, navigation and movement of objects within the app can be easily learned. The app has three major sections: Scrapbook mode, Corkboard mode and Puzzle mode.

The Puzzle mode:
A unique twist on conventional puzzles, autumn designer’s Puzzle mode provides ten semi-transparent pre-made creatures, characters and objects with all their elements scattered about on the screen. Kids then arrange the elements atop the image to complete the puzzle. Not only does the Puzzle mode help children develop their spatial and tactile skills, but also gives children ideas about what they can create using both the Corkboard and scrapbook modes.

The Corkboard mode:
The Corkboard mode is used to make autumn themed pictures. Arrange, resize, rotate and layer an unlimited amount of the more than 300 included elements (a lovely collection of items one would find outside during autumn) to make rich and wonderfully creative creatures, characters and objects. Additionally, photos can be taken using the built-in camera feature; these photos can also be used as elements in the pictures you are creating. Finally, pictures are stored in the corkboard gallery. The cork board gallery is used to have a quick look at all the pictures you have made. In the Corkboard gallery, all pictures can be viewed, edited, deleted or emailed as an image file to friends and family. This is perfect to store story or school project ideas for the Scrapbook mode.

The Scrapbook mode:
The scrapbook mode has all of the features of the Corkboard mode, except instead of simply saving only one picture, you can store up to five pages into a collection of pictures (a scrapbook). Scrapbooks can be used to create wonderfully creative family albums and group pictures, story books or simple slide shows for school projects. Finally, store it away in a digital scrapbook gallery or email it to your friends and family as a PDF document.

Conclusion:
Aside from all the features, its ease use, and its vivid and beautiful content set, one of the very best aspects of Autumn Designer is that it makes children want to go outside to collect leaves, berries and other autumn treasures; it is a perfect way to encourage your children to be interested in the environment. Autumn Designer has so many different applications, both at home and at school, that its value outweighs its price many times over. Enjoy autumn again with 123 Kids Autumn Designer any time of year.

Feature Highlights:
* Easy to use interface designed with children in mind
* Two different creation features (scrapbook and corkboard modes) for storing, viewing, editing, deleting and emailing pictures or collections of pictures to friends and family
* One puzzle mode to give children ideas of what can be done within the creation modes and to help children practice fine motor and spatial skills

* Each element on the page can be resized, rotated, locked into place and placed in front of or behind other elements on the page
* Photos can be taken and integrated as part of the pictures – perfect for personalizing pictures
