Need to pay for most features. Therefore hard to try out.

I use this app to manage, review, and annotate complex documents. I can store them locally and do not need to store them on the cloud. It is simply fantastic—worth every penny.

Love it but a little need to improve

It’s so convenient and easy to use. But wish the developer can make it easier to select the whole section of notes so that I can move it easier as a whole

Fantastic app you didn’t know you needed, but can’t live without!

Wow, amazing concept. I don’t know how I ever performed research and prepared any work or school document without it. Only one piece is missing...the ability to actually create/copy citations out of your work to put into your papers. If it had that it would be a Mendeley and Zotero killer.

Flip-page feature needed for earlier version of iPad

I wish I could flip to the next page with my iPad. This iPad does not come with Apple Pencil 2. Buying a new iPad Pro is too expensive for me. I think this function can be added from software side (like kindle).

Essential. Easy to use. Reliable. Could use a few features

I’ve used LiquidText for my undergrad, postgrad, doctoral work. It doesn’t have the prettiest interface. It can seem quite barebones but I’m a design freak. Yeah, apps with prettier interfaces and with more personality have come and gone. Not LiquidText. It offers me the ability to annotate and slice up a pdf, and then export my work in a way that’s easy to keep organised. All without a whiff or hint of future subscriptions. Remarkable. (When will developers realize that throwing subscriptions at us forces us to be way more selective about what apps we’re willing to give a shot?) That being said, I wish LiquidText offered a few features: First, the option to change the workspace colours would be nice. More importantly, the ability to sync between devices would be very useful. I have a big iPad Pro that I use most of the time. But I have a smaller iPad Pro that’s easier to carry around. It’s unfortunate that I can’t do the same LiquidText work on both. And I don’t even want to think about what it would be like if something were to happen to the one iPad with my LiquidText work. A “favourites” or “recent” shortcut right on the home screen would make navigation smoother and more efficient. A more iOS-like folder creation and file management system would offer me the easy flexibility that I need in organizing my work. It would be nice to click to create a folder, and then be able to drag pdfs into it. These are just a few suggestions, conveniences offered by apps that I’ve tried but just don’t offer the same whole package offered by LiquidText.

One of my go-to app for reviewing notes

Cynic072's Review of Liquidtext

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM

I’m back as a student for a little while and have to do a lot of reviews and academic readings. This is currently my go-to app for all my annotations and stuffs, and to make my current work flow more efficient. So far it has been a godsend, but somehow the link to my Google Drive has been a little patchy lately. I’ve also not been able to sync my documents on my iCloud. Hope these 2 bugs would be sorted out really soon. Cheers.

My #1 app for reading + small feature request

This app dramatically simplifies and streamlines reading and note taking. Works amazingly well with the Pencil too. One request: when you draw an object, say a circle, can you add the option to copy and paste the object, so you don’t have to redraw it if you need it in multiple places.

Seattle Rex's Review of Liquidtext

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM

I’ll be working, often with people reading over my shoulder, and I randomly get this weird pop-op that says “Do you love LiquidText yes/no”. This is completely inappropriate. Do I have to validate you ad-nauseum, or would it be okay to focus on my own stuff now? It’s like there’s a stalker lurking, periodically asking “do you love me?”, and then runs off, giggling. You probably trigger stalking victims and creep them out with this stuff. Who thought this was a good idea, no there is no “good” anymore, who thought this was an “amazing!” idea. My God, may the corpse of sincerity rest in peace forever. God forbid someone uses a tool in an acceptable manner. Now they have to LOVE it. When was the last time you guy said something with sincerity? Really, think about it. Grown adult with health emotional maturity don’t “love” PDF readers. I have rating nags turned off in iOS. I know, I know, I know, I know, those things don’t apply to you. You’re the exceptions. Everyone knows that. When you mothers got pregnant, they were convinced that they were carrying the messiah, and they taught you that you were ... so nothing that applies to average people applies to you. But maybe, just maybe, you can just pretend to respect our preferences? Yeah, I know, mommy never covered the “thinking of others” stuff, so this all seems like heresy, I’m sure. Still ... Are there no adults in the building over there to say “Hey guys, people use this for serious work, so maybe your constant need for attention shouldn’t make it’s way into the cash cow. The customers paid, they aren’t supposed to be thinking about you anymore. They’re living their own lives now. I know, I know, your parents told you that you’re special, but they just said that to make you feel good ... people really aren’t thinking of you 24/7. If you need constant affection and re-assurance, get a puppy, don’t stalk the users while they attending to their own lives”. It’s good advice. Take it.

Suboptimal rendering engine

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM

I have purchased the app to use with my iPad Pro 10.5 I really like the app. I really do. However, the rendering speed is really a show stopper for me. I use the app mostly for reading academic paper, and when I scroll too fast, or even moderately fast, the rendering engine will take an extra beat: everything will be blurry, then get rendered. This doesn’t happen with other pdf readers (but again, non of them has the features offered by LiquidText). Please please please fix this. Also, I would love to be able to trim the white space. Academic papers have tons of wasted white spaces, so I would love to have a zoom option that trims all the white spaces. Thanks
