PDF Expert Updated With Handoff Support

Readdle has updated PDF Expert with Handoff support, allowing users to start working on iPhone or iPad and easily pick up on Mac where they left off.

PDF-Reader-Handoff
To transfer a PDF document from an iPhone or iPad to Mac, click on the Handoff button in PDF Expert for Mac and select the file. Handoff will automatically transfer the PDF document to the desktop, including all annotations and edits. The iPhone or iPad must be on the same Wi-Fi network as the Mac.

PDF Expert is a popular iOS app for reading, annotating, signing, editing, and merging PDF documents. Readdle launched a Mac version of the app last November, which was selected as an "App of the Year" runner-up by Apple in 2015. Readdle is now working on PDF Expert for Mac 2.0, which will include OCR and PDF text editing.

PDF Expert 5 for iOS is $9.99 on the App Store, while PDF Expert for Mac is on sale for $19.99. Readdle says the Mac version is currently 70% off and will return to its regular $59.99 price tomorrow. A free seven day trial is also available. PDF Expert for Mac 2.0 will be a free update for existing users.

Don't know why Apple doesn't have Preview for the iPad and iCloud. Seems obvious.

This part is confusing. According to Macruqmor's sister site, Appshopper, the Mac App Store version of PDF Expert launched at $19.99 late last year and has remained that price ever since. So it was never $59.99 to begin with.

Here's what their blog ('https://readdle.com/blog/2015/11/meet-pdf-expert-for-mac/') said about the initial price back in November:

"PDF Expert for Mac, with all the reading and editing features I just mentioned, is just $19.99. However, as we will unlock more power in future updates, that price will gradually rise to $59.99."

Thank you for the clarification. That sums it up :)

Just got home to look at the update: it adds an "open in new windows" option! My only major complaint is now fixed!

I have to say, I've left Preview for the first time in 4 years for this app and it's really great. It's smooth, fast, uses less RAM and does 3x as much a Preview and the consistent annotations across iOS and OS X is a huge.

My only complaint (and I filed a request) is that each time you open a PDF from the Finder or Mail, it opens in a new tab instead of a new window. So you can have 4 PDFs open in tabs with one window. You can drag them off like in Safari, but I wish there was an option for default behavior. When I open multiple PDFs, I need to see them spread across monitors.
