App for that: search content in all your PDF files
I use my iPad to read and annotate lots of PDF papers for my academic research. Currently, I need to transfer the annotated files back to my laptop and use Adobe Acrobat Pro to search through all PDF files at once, let's say to find all documents that contain a given reference for instance.
I have got a number of PDF Reader type apps in my iPad, but each one only offers search functionality once the PDF is open, meaning that if I am looking for the word "TiPb" (yes, I know what you're thinking but I need a break from my research everynow and then :-), I need to open every single PDF file and search, which can be quite time consuming when you have 100s of files. So, I am looking for an app that allows me to search for a specific word in all PDF files at once, rather than having to open files individually and then hit the search button. As a bonus, I'd love if the the app could also allow me to print only the annotations with a single file, rather than the whole of the annotated PDF document.
Thanks for any help.
