Foxit Mobile PDF is an iOS version of Foxit Corporation’s popular PDF software for PCs. The app will fit all your needs for viewing and annotating PDFs, while also providing tremendously clear rendering.
Foxit Mobile PDF displays a simple PDF document manager on start-up, but also includes a history and favorites section. Selecting any PDF document will bring to the viewer, which contains numerous features to meet the PDF users’ needs. You have the option of viewing the PDF by swiping horizontally, as a vertically continuous document, or a as a group of thumbnails. Foxit Mobile PDF also provides a full search feature for any PDF document, as well as the ability to change brightness levels, add bookmarks to certain pages, and include encryption options.
Although there are several apps in the PDF genre, Foxit Mobile PDF seems to be one of the better ones. I am impressed with the annotation tools that allow the user to add a lines, arrow, rectangle, circle, text boxes, and various textual changes such as highlighting, strikeout, and different types of underlines. The app also has a very useful signature feature if you need to sign a PDF document.
The developers of Foxit Mobile provide quite a useful “getting started” guide in the document manager, which helps show each of the important features of the app. They even provided a convenient Wi-Fi sharing mode where you can move documents between your phone and computer.
