    "GoodReader does to much to help you out in the PDF department. It allows you to read, edit, create, and convert documents to PDFs incredibly quickly on the go. Honestly would say it's better than most Desktop PDF software."

    "A good option for those looking for a file management app for their iOS devices. There are several options out there but this is a good alternative to try out. I personally think this app is straightforward and simple and does as it says."

    "This was not useful to me. I found it difficult to understand and wasn't for me. Granted I'm not the most techy person and was confusing. I may not be the best person to use this, and it could be useful for others."

    "Documents is he best file saving and sharing app ever! It has so many features, making it my most used app ever. I use Documents for both work and personal tasks, and it hasn’t failed me yet. I love that there’s an app that can store/play music and unzip files. I thought that when iOS 11 came out with the Files app that I wouldn’t need use Documents as much, but I was wrong. This is still way better and much more functional than Files."

    "This seems like a very generic PDF reader, it's free which makes it on par for other PDF readers. it also from comments has a ton of intrusive ads which is a negative in my book."
