GoodReader for iPhone

GoodReader [$4.99 - iTunes link], sent to us courtesy of editor emeritus Mike Overbo, is an app to help iPhone and iPod touch users view very large PDF (Adobe Portable Document Format), images, and TXT (plain text) files.

While it can use the built-in iPhone file viewer for Office and iWork, GoodReader has its own, very fast renderer for:

  • very large PDF's, fast opening, password protected files, 50x zoom, text search, bookmarks
  • very large TXT's, fast opening, no zooming or left/right scrolling required (text lines are wrapped to screen size), text search, bookmarks
  • high-resolution pictures, slideshow

The new version also allows for USB file transfer.

If you like your files BIG, and decide to give GoodReader a try, let us know how it works for you.
