HotDoc for iPad is a brand new documents manager for the iPad. The App will be your best friend when it comes to managing documents in any format. The user interface is something different and structures documents in a unique format. Gestures can be used to handle files. If an App acts as a document viewer, there are some key elements needed for it to be useful. HotDoc has got most of them.
Starting with the ability to open documents from other Apps using HotDoc to easy syncing across web services like Dropbox and via a webDAV server is all included. Documents can not only be viewed and managed but created as well. East content creation is possible with the App. Once you have your documents inside HotDoc, managing them is a breeze. You have access to all of them through one place, be it a .PDF, MS PowerPoint, Keynote, Numbers, Pages and Pictures: JPG / JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF or others.
Images can also be viewed with HotDoc. Documents can also be shared via email.
Here are all the App features –
✓ Very intuitive and easy to use interface
✓ Import of files by e-mail accounts, dropbox and built-in WebDAV server
✓ Export of files to dropbox and via built-in WebDAV server and e-mails
✓ Creation and edit of text files
✓ Creation of folders (subfolders and complex structures are possible)
✓ Copying and moving individual documents or entire folder structures
✓ Direct sending documents by e-mail
✓ Opening documents from other APPs in HotDoc and vice versa
✓ Many possibilities of adding your own notes, lines, rectangles, ellipses, markers, etc.
✓ Zoom for viewing documents
✓ Searching for documents (including subfolders)
✓ Printing the documents content
✓ Help function with a detailed user manual (over 60 pages)
✓ Automatic adjustment of the program language depending on the system settings from iPad (English, Spanish, French, German, Polish)
While there are many other document viewers available in the App Store, HotDoc can be considered another one of them with some better features. Would be better if the App supported more social features including sharing, collaboration with other users and revamped the user interface is terms of design a bit.
You can get the App for $1.99 from the App Store.
