Popular PDF editing and management app PDF Expert has been updated to add support for iOS 15.1 and SharePlay. The move means that people can present the contents of a PDF over FaceTime from anywhere in the world.

The update, which is available for download from the App Store now and was announced via blog post (opens in new tab), means that it's easier than ever to show people what's on a PDF, no matter whether they're in the same room or on the other side of the world.

With PDF Expert, you don't need to rush to the desktop whenever you need to hold an online presentation. It now integrates with FaceTime, letting you effortlessly share your screen and draw on the slides together with others.

Presenting a document is as simple as opening it and then pressing a button to "Start Presenting." And that's it, you're done! The person receiving the SharePlay call doesn't need to be a PDF Expert Pro user either — anyone will be able to follow along.

The updated PDF Expert can be downloaded now (opens in new tab) and is a free download with in-app purchases available. This new update takes what was already one of the best iPad and iPhone PDF apps and makes it better than ever — and in a way that many people might not realize they needed.
