Crashes all the time!

While this program does have some unique features - nothing that I would consider so useful that it out weighs the current "bugs" of the program - it is an okay program that is expensive in relation to its peers given its faults.
The "bugs" are two fold. One bug is that it crashes. It crashes more than I believe appropriate for a program that is being sold to the public. The second, and most frustrating, is the program's inability to save work - probably because it crashes frequently - probably because the user cannot direct it to "save" the work. The ability to direct the app to save work would really be nice since it crashes all the time. Imagine reading, taking notes in a document, and highlighting that document for 15 minutes only to see it crash and see that it didn't save anything for the past 15 mins - ugh! It's especially frustrating when the app says "saving" in the lower left corner every so often, but once it crashes, and after you re-open the program/app, you realize that nothing really was saved. Probably a really good app if you want to sign a PDF and just review a PDF - no notes or highlighting. Not a good app if you want to read a PDF and do some good quality editing, and note taking. I do not recommend this app unless you need to sign a PDF.


this app used to work fine- but it seems to be crashing EVERY single time i run it. I'm on an ipad air 2, latest update. I just spent half an hour editing a simple 10 page text document, tried to save it by exiting and it crashed hard. i lost half the work i did- this is inexcusable considering most apps today will simply resume where you last left off after crashing. until fixed, this app shouldn't even be on here. i stuck with this app because i really didn't want to have to research and purchase another pdf editor, but it looks like i'm going to have to- seeing all the other negative reviews since august. perhaps apple can help boot this app off

PDF Pen great for reading and annotating PDFs

I see that some people are having trouble with crashes for PDFpen. I have used this App for quite a while on both my Mac and my iPad. I have been very satisfied and not had any crashes. Recently, I upgraded to an iPhone 6 and it crashed every time that I tried to open it. I deleted the App and reinstalled. Now it again works great. No problems at all.
