App Update: PDF Expert for iPad adds full text search and more

For those who heavily rely on PDF Expert for the iPad, the new 3.2 update brings about a much requested feature – the ability to not only search the file name, but the entire contents of the PDF file as well. This will certainly help users with a sizable library of PDFs find their documents more easily and quickly. And accessory fanatics who love their bluetooth keyboards (like the ZAGGmate) will also appreciate the added support of the “Tab” and arrow keys when filling out their PDF forms (PDF Expert is one of the few on the App Store that lets you fill out forms created in Adobe Acrobat). If you already own the app, the update is free; otherwise, this excellent PDF reader/annotator will set you back $9.99. More app info and what’s new after the gap.

Once it’s created, simply tap and hold on the area of screen you’d like for it to appear and choose the option “Signature”. Rinse and repeat.
