Reading Mode

With Documents Reading Mode, you don't need to waste time manually zooming through the PDF text just to make it readable. It adjusts the text to ease and improve your reading experience. The content is presented as a single column, and even numerous illustrations, tables, or formulas perfectly adapt to the iPhone screen.

Note: Currently, this option is not available for iPads.
