Readdle is launching PDF Expert 7, and Pro features are now a subscription of US$49.99/year. There are still free features available, but if you want to do anything other than viewing a PDF, you’ll have to pay. Free Features: New design; better page management; sticker packs; improved engine that now runs on Metal; Files app integration; advanced search; new Annotation Summary tool. Pro Features: Edit PDF text and images; convert to PDF; reduce PDF file size; organize pages; sign PDFs; protect PDFs with a password; customizable toolbar; regular major updates. If you bought the PDF Expert 6 pro features, you’ll still have them in PDF Expert 7. App Store: Free (Offers In-App Purchases)

    PDF Expert just doesn’t have enough quality features to justify a mandatory $50/yr. I suspect because they are a popular app, they think they will retain enough users to get away with it. It makes sense for certain apps to go subscription, but a PDF editing program just isn’t one of them.
