Each time I use the GoodReader app on my iPad I like it more. It’s not perfect, but it always seems to do what I need it to and then surprises me with a little more. Granted, maybe if I had read the documentation I wouldn’t be so surprised, but it’s the little things in life.
My latest discoveries are that I can use GoodReader as a simple text editor and as a teleprompter. In writing a recent article I wanted just a plain text editor for my iPad. Evernote is good for some things but felt like it was slowing me down, and the iWork apps seemed overkill.
I found I could create text files with it, and write without the app getting in the way. It’s simple to just create a file and type.
In poking around I found there’s also a way to use GoodReader as a teleprompter. You can easily change the foreground and background color, increase the font size, and set the scrolling speed. Hit the “play” button and you’re set. Even if you don’t need a prompter, you can use it to help pace yourself when preparing for a presentation or recording a narration.
GoodReader is $.99 and you can get it the ITunes App store.
