iOS 9 & pdf-notes for iPad

I am sorry for customers who couldn’t access Google Drive because of iOS 9’s side effect that failed to enlarge login view. Now, I want to let you know about the recent 3.6.19 version.

  • pdf-notes for iPad 3.6.19 version runs on iOS 9 only. (iPad 1 customers can use the 3.6.15 version under iOS 5. ^^)
  • The former free versions didn’t support multitasking, but the 3.6.19 free version supports multitasking with a small notice dialog, because of the picture in picture video multitasking of iOS 9. => It supports picture in picture video play for attachments so that you can turn pages or make notes or even run other apps while watching the PIP video.
  • I’ve renewed all Dropbox, Google Drive, uCloud connections, and the 3.6.19 version supports document picker extension for other apps/clouds including iCloud. It will be greatly helpful for you.
  • I’ve added a setting to clear link background colors.
  • And there are lots of enhancements, but I am really sorry for this update after a very long absence because Apple does not accept 32 bit apps since 2015 so that I had to re-write all the 32 bit codes to 64 bit codes and it takes very long time. You might know that pdf-notes 3.6.15 version or former versions supports iOS 5 ~ iOS 8 and those were written by 32 bit codes. Now, the 3.6.19 version is written by 64 bit codes.

I uploaded it on 8th November 2015 so that please wait until Apple finishes its review. The review was finished on 2nd December 2015.

  • After the update uploading, Apple had wrongly rejected its review because of the review team's mistake (or misunderstanding?), and after the 2 times appeals the review was finished. It takes lots of times.
  • Please don't bugging developers for those waiting because it's a kind of casual waiting from the review teams' misunderstanding or mistake, it's not a special case but often. Apple review teams are not so smart but like us.

Thank you~ ^^
