PDF document reader for iPad

iPod touch 4G-3G-2G




Fast PDF is a pdf reader designed for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It's quick and responsive even with very large documents. It's perfect for books, magazines, journals, comics or anything else saved as a pdf document.

If you are waiting for the support of PDF in iBooks and the release for iPhone and iPod touch try Fast PDF and you won't be disappointed.

Fast PDF presents every document as a book in a beautiful bookshelf with a preview of the document as cover. Supporting both portrait and landscape orientations, pages are displayed individually or side-by-side to better mimic the behaviour of paper publications and enjoy the original graphic as created by the author.

Navigation through the document is done with a simple swipe on the screen or through the navigation bar and the user can immediately zoom on the document with a pinch or a double tap. Zoom, navigation and transition between pages are quick and smooth, even on large documents full of images.

Bookmarks can be saved for each document and Fast PDF remembers the last page of the last file the user was reading when closed, so reading can be quickly resumed. Bookmarks and documents can be freely added, sorted, renamed and deleted through an intuitive interface.

The simplest way to upload documents into Fast PDF through iTunes (iPad or iOS 4) or through any web browser if the device and the computer share the same network. Moreover, the user can use Fast PDF to directly open a pdf document from within any other application, for example a pdf document as email attachment, or send a book from the bookshelf via email (iPad or iOS 4).

If this were not enough, it's also possibile to search, find and download any file directly from the web with the embedded internet browser.

Fast PDF is available on the App Store for 2.99 $.

Some user reviews

ticked off HFan

People talk about programs like other programs that are the best on ipad, but really this is the BEST pdf reader out there. I have never seen a program that is as fast as Fast PDF, it strips away all of the annoying features as some other popular pdf readers, (you know who i am talking about) and focuses on a fast slick reading experience. It reads all of my pdf documents from 5mb to 200mb and it is lightning fast with an easy zoom and great features. If you want a smooth, enjoyable reading experience, please avoid all of the other so called best programs and give Fast PDF a try.


My experience with this apps is so good that I keep adding PDF files to read on my Ipad. That's how fun it his!


I am very impressed with the latest update for Fast PDF. The app makes true on its promise to be lightning fast. I had started using iBooks lately because it handled large documents better, but iBooks pales in comparison to the speed offered by the 1.3 update. I have witnessed some instability, but they may be due to the sheer size and awkward formatting of some of the PDFs I have been using to test this version. Folders are a welcome addition, though their implementation is not exactly intuitive. Regardless,it makes fast PDF once again one of the best PDF readers.
