Darsoft specializes in productivity/business apps for iOS (PDF PROvider, Print Utility) and chief among them is PDF Forms, which has dropped in price to Free for the very first time. Previously priced at $8.99, PDF Forms is stacked with features like fillable forms, annotations, multiple signature support, stamps, Dropbox/Google Drive and documents management (split/duplicate/re-order/zip forms). While its interface may not be as attractive as apps like PDF Expert or even PDF Cabinet, PDF Forms is a more than capable PDF reader and annotator that doubles as a form filler and more. For the price of free, this is certainly worth checking out on your iPad.

If platform action is more your style you might want to give Burt Destruction a shot.

While iOS’ autocorrect feature is fairly competent, there are undoubtedly times when users have wished that its text prediction was much improved. Enter Fleksy, the iOS app released last year where the developers called it the “most powerful text prediction engine out there”, has been embraced by thousands of users who are able to type on their iPhones and iPads without having to even look at the keyboard.
