The time of year when I review my PDF Expert subscription has just come and I decided to contact Readdle to see the state of PDF Expert 3 for Mac. I’m glad I did because my iOS subscription was about to renew, and they sent me the installer for PDF Expert 3, which has a subscription at the same price as the iOS apps but also now includes the new Mac version as well as full access to the iOS apps.
So, now for the same price I was paying for just the iOS apps, I get the new version of the app which includes OCR and lots of other improvements. If anyone is in a similar situation do not renew the iOS version. Instead, email Readdle as you can have the new Mac version and the iOS apps included for the same price as the iOS app store subscription.
I’m really happy with the new version, the OCR is accurate and well implemented in particular. The app is also lightning fast. I compared it to some other options out there (Goodreader, PDF Pen, and PDF Viewer) and PDF Expert is faster and more responsive than any, especially when scrolling on the Mac. I also found it has all the features I want, the others are either slow and buggy or they do not have all the functionality in PDF Expert.
