GoodReader for iPad 3.18.0

GoodReader for iPad 3.18.0 has been released, and the main improvements focus on handling files over a network, including shared files from PCs/Windows-based computers. The Dropbox support has received a large update – there is no size limit of files that can be uploaded through Dropbox.

GoodReader is an Adobe Acrobat/PDF reader for the iPad, but it does quite a bit more than that, as it can handle TXT and images as well as various word processing formats (possibly even audio/video, but I’ve never tested that aspect). It’s one of my top-5 non-genealogy specific apps on my iPad as I have a lot of genealogy-related PDF files that I’ve accumulated over the years, and it’s very easy to keep them organized, and it doesn’t choke, even on the larger ones.

Evernote 4.1.9, Kindle 3.0 Take Advantage of New iPad

Last week, Apple announced the higher resolution iPAd. It has a resolution of 2048×1536. While no genealogy applications have yet to take advantage of it (although I believe I know of one in the works), other applications that genealogists use are starting to take the new iPad into account, starting with Evernote and Amazon’s Kindle software being updated today. Do keep in mind that some of the changes apply to the iPad and iPad 2 as well as iPhones and iPod Touch.

Evernote is a note-taking/journal app (it’s much more than that, really), that a lot of us use because it’s quick and simple and very much cross platform – Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, web, Windows Phone as well I believe. There’s just a lot of really great things about Evernote, and there have been plenty of genealogy presentations and podcasts focused on Evernote.

To give you an idea of the changes and clarity the new iPad brings, the Evernote developers posted an entry on their blog where they illustrate the high resolution changes in store for those Evernote users who are early adapters of the new iPad.
