Absolute Must Have App

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty


Hands down, Goodreader is my absolute "Must Have" app.  Goodreader is like my mobile file cabinet.  For every document that I store in Goodreader, I create a file for that particular transaction, buyer, seller, etc.  That way I don't have to search through an exhaustive list to find the document that I am looking for.

In addition, I can markup the document by highlighting, adding text notes and much more.  Sure there were other mobile apps installed on my iPad and iPhone before I even discovered Goodreader, BUT I would use them sporadically.  With Goodreader, I use it methodically.  I is by far, the most used app on my mobile devices.

When I am done with a file or a transaction has closed, I'll keep the Goodreader file for 1 to 3 months, then make sure that I have printed everything, then I'll remove the file from Goodreader to free up space on my device.

Charita, Sounds like a handy app. I wonder if there is an Android version. Do you know of one??

Nancy it's pretty popular.  I think I may have first heard of it on ActiveRain.  I think many use Evernote and the others may use Goodreader.

Sorry Helen and Larry, I checked and no Androit for Goodreader.

Hope you find a good use for it Kathy.

Check it out Marco.  It's a mobile file cabinet is the best I can describe it.  Thanks for noticing the pic.

Thanks for the App suggestion as I will have to check it out. I wonder if some how you could store the files on Drop Box so you did not have to print everything out and store the paper. I always have these large paper files and after a deal is done I do not know what to do with this file.

Gay there are just so many tools and apps, we just have to choose which one works for us.

Robert Dropbox is a fabulous tool and the only reason that I probably don't use it is because Goodreader comes to mind first when I need to store something.  Overall I think they both serve the same valuable purpose.

Joni you may or may not need it but it certainly can't hurt to explore.

I know Carla.  I only thought it was hard at first but once I dove in, it was so easy.

Hi Charita, I use Evernotes(thanks to YOU!!) and love it, never heard of Goodreader but will check it. You have helped me a great deal with apps when I first got my iPad.

Charita-Thanks for the suggestion of Goodreader. I like seeing what others are using. It never hurts to have an alternate means of getting things done.
