Chicago, Illinois – Aji, LLC has just released iRead PDF, an elegant PDF reader that offers annotation viewing on the iPad, entirely free. Based on iAnnotate, the developer’s powerful PDF annotation tool, iRead is a full-featured PDF reader that supports tabbed reading, bookmarking, comprehensive library search, and gesture-supported browsing for PDFs. In addition, iRead provides support for viewing notes, highlights, underlines, or drawings added to documents using iAnnotate or other standard annotation tools like Adobe Reader or Preview.
iRead PDF shares iAnnotate’s advanced interface, dynamic file-transfer features, and simple organizational tools. Users can transfer PDFs via email, from other apps, via iTunes sync or even by clicking any PDF web link in the integrated web browser. Reading and sharing PDFs couldn’t be easier!
The intuitive drag and drop interface offers customizable toolbars, easy to access contextual menus, and tabbed document browsing. Users can search their entire library by keywords, add bookmarks and view which documents are “new”, “unread”, recently viewed, or “annotated”.
“While annotation has always been our core focus, we’ve also built up a top-notch PDF reading app along the way. So we’ve decided to release that independently, especially due to the lack of annotation support in other iPad PDF readers.” says Jim Brink, Founder of Aji. “We already have a ton of users who love iAnnotate’s UI, custom toolbars, and functionality, so we feel we’re in the optimal place to offer the perfect free PDF reader that also brings annotation viewing to everyone.”
Use iRead to carry your entire PDF library or access documents from mail and the web on the go. Anyone who works with PDFs will love it!
