This post is brought to you by Readdle, maker of PDF Expert.
We’re giving away five licenses for the awesome Mac app PDF Expert — which was named “App of the Year 2015” by Apple — and we’re excited.
PDFs are part of daily life for pretty much anyone who works at a computer. But besides printing, sending or signing, there’s not a whole lot you can do with them if you don’t have special software. Get the right tool, though, and suddenly PDFs are loaded with possibilities.
If you want to get an idea of how drag-and-drop could work on the iPad, then take a look at Readdle’s latest updates to its iOS productivity apps, which now allow you to drag files between the apps in split-screen view. That’s right, thanks to some very clever hacking, you can seamlessly drag a PDF, photo, or other document, from one app to another. For instance, you can drag scans from Scanner Pro to an email you’re composing in Spark, or you can take an attachment from Spark and drag it into a folder to save in Documents. Let’s take a look at how to do it. Spoiler: it’s pretty easy.
Readdle just rolled out big updates that give users the ability to drag and drop content between its entire lineup of awesome productivity apps on iPad. It’s never been easier to multitask and manage your most important files on the go.
The company has also updated Documents 6 to turn it into a “Finder on iOS.”
One of the most important engineers behind Apple’s own Mail app has decided to leave the company and lend his skills to another email app creator.
Readdle, makers of the popular Spark email app for iOS, has hired away former Apple Mail engineering manager Terry Blanchard to work on ‘the future of email’ after he helped Apple develop its email app for the past six years.
Spark, the stellar email app from Readdle, is finally coming to Mac. The public beta launched a few weeks ago, but starting today now anyone can use the popular app that made its name as one of the best iOS email apps.
Readdle’s excellent PDF Expert app, the best PDF management app on iOS, is now even greater thanks to Apple Pencil support, and a new transfer tool that makes moving files to and from your Mac easier than ever.
I’ve been spending the past week or so doing some app spring cleaning on my iPad, partially in preparation for the arrival of my new 9.7” iPad Pro on Thursday. During the process I realized that I have way too many document editing apps — half of which I have either never launched, or they didn’t do something I needed so I never used them again.
That’s why I took the opportunity to really cut down. Here are the document management apps that made the cut, and why:
PDF handling on the iPhone and iPad has vastly improved over the last year or so. Not only can you scan documents as PDFs using the camera, you can sign documents and send them off to the recipient, and even request the signature of others electronically.
One of the best email clients for the iPhone just got even better. Spark, which promises that “you are going to like your email again,” is now available for the iPad as well. And this isn’t an all-too-common instance of developers just stretching out the iPhone version of their app and calling it a day. Spark is fully optimized for the iPad’s larger display.
