Good.iWare announces the launch of a major update to its GoodReader file viewer application for iPhone and iPod Touch, with new features that enable it to easily manage large PDF and TXT files. The application is available in the iTunes App Store. Here is more info:
"Good.iWare has created its own viewing engine for GoodReader, making it ideal for viewing:
* very large PDFs (fast opening, password protected files, revolutionary 50x zoom) * very large TXT files (fast opening, no zooming or left/right scrolling required, user-selectable font and font-size, all text encodings known to iPhone OS) * high-resolution pictures, with an included slideshow mode
Built-in viewing engine (with all its file size and other limitations, this is what most of other viewer applications use):
* MS Office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint * HTML files and Safari webarchives * iWork'08 * iWork'09 (only with iPhone OS 3.0) * audio & video
GoodReader now offers a revolutionary 50x PDF zoom, while maintaining sharpness and contrast, delivering the best way to read large PDF maps or technical drawings on an iPhone.
Other PDF viewing features that distinguish GoodReader from other viewer apps include true full-screen reading (no bars or buttons over the text), manual/automatic screen rotation, horizontal scroll lock, direct Web downloading of files, and an innovative Tap Zones feature whereby all scrolling is accomplished by tapping in special zones. It also offers optional password protection on application launch to add a layer of security.
The new version also offers the ability to send files from a computer to the iPhone via USB, a feature many customers had requested which will enable them to simply connect the USB cable and start transferring files rather than dealing with WiFi configurations or additional hardware.
GoodReader also offers a host of features that make it easier to navigate large files, including PDF and TXT text search and bookmarking, a "GoTo Page" feature for PDFs, and fast navigation in large TXT files with a navigation slider.
GoodReader can be purchased in Apple's App Store (iTunes Store) for US$4.99."
