A Better PDF Reading, Review and Annotation Experience
With hundreds of PDF readers already on the App Store we tried to create not another powerhouse like GoodReader, but something anyone can use without going through endless menus, buttons and settings.
Cabinet is not for everyone. People looking for advanced features and full flexibility already have iAnnotatePDF and GoodReader. We aim at those who want a simple yet powerful PDF reader with annotation and collaboration functionality. I personally never managed to get the hang of GoodReader. It always looked like a chore to me, and not a tool to help me.
We designed Cabinet from scratch to be something different. Instead of following the paradigm of "all-in-one-plus-500-things-more" we focused only on the essential functionality and polished it to perfection.
Simplicity, usability and performance were the only three things on our priority list. We don't have settings in Cabinet, and we are proud of it!
It's not easy to follow that road. People who try the app fall in love with it on the spot, but at the same time we get a lot of feature requests. Not many realize, that it's not really possible to please everyone. The road to bad user experience starts with following each and every feature request.
Of course, we will continue to improve and enhance the app, the next major update will bring the most important thing that we didn't include in the first version – Dropbox integration. But we will carefully plan our next updates and will stick to the main idea of simple PDF reader that is easy to use.
