While paper copies become increasingly obsolete and physical scanners seem more like useless overhead, certain niche apps and devices have come in to take their place at an absolute fraction of the price.
This is where we present PDF Connect; which allows users to handle large PDF’s and documents with just a little hassle and even less expense.
This app comes with a truly spectacular amount of features. Generally speaking, if you know your way around apps and are relatively tech-savvy, then you’ll be just fine. If not, you may actually be a bit confused by the amount of in-app options. However, we can’t fault the app for this, since any confusion simply comes at the expense of a truly loaded app.
The app itself looks clean and comes with full iOS 7 compatibility. It is available on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and boasts a comprehensive interface with dozens of useful features. You’ll have to spend some time poking around to truly gain an understanding of the uses of this app.
That being said, if you are looking for a one-shot scan and send app, this one might not be up your alley.
Some of the best features are that PDF files can be opened even if they are over 100 MB, which means you won’t have to defer to opening larger documents until you get home.
Users can edit, sign, scan, save and upload PDF’s. Functionality is integrated directly into iCloud, Google Docs, Box and most other cloud-centric hubs that you can imagine. The app comes available in French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and more, and is definitely targeted toward an international market.
Concept and Functionality:
As we mentioned, buyer beware. At $5.99, this app expects you to read the descriptions and experiment a bit to fully utilize the range of features. If you want to scan documents, open PDF’s, edit on the fly and enjoy multiple-language compatibility, then PDF Connect is going to win you over with its incredible range of features.
However, if you’re the type that can barely login to the App Store to begin with, then PDF Connect is probably going to confuse you. Apps like ‘Genius Scan’ touch on the functionality of PDF Connect, but barely scratch the surface of what the app is actually after.
PDF Connect wants you to work off of the app and truly utilize the full scope of functionality available to make it worth your while.
Simply because this app is so loaded, it’s won me over. Apps like these set the tone for a new age of business, where everything can be done via mobile device, while avoiding costly and outdated machinery.
At just under six bucks, the app isn’t free, but it should easily pay for itself if you use it correctly.
PDF Connect requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
