    Hi there! Im contemplating buying an iPad Pro but I do need to know one thing about its functionality. I require a pdf reading app that recognizes Apple Pencil input as separate to touch input. Specifically, I would like to have page-scrolling selected for touch input and, at the same time, have highlight tool selected for Apple Pencil, so that my finger scrolls the page, all the while Apple Pencil highlights the text in pdf file. Do you know if there are any apps which fulfill my requirements? I have heard rumors that LiquidText does the job but I need to be completely sure before shelling out a few hundred dollars for the device. Ive searched the Net but found no clear answer to my question, so I will be very grateful for any help or suggestions.

    There are so many PDF viewers and editors out there you would have to try first hand. Since Apple has a 2 week return policy on everything I would try things out for yourself personally - that way you are 100% satisfied.

    You can scroll from page to page with your fingers and use the Apple Pencil to write notes using PDF Expert by Readdle.

    If you are presenting, PDF Expert has a Focus tool that is useful.

    Just this? So it's not worthwhile to pay $$$ for that.

    I've never used the Adobe app. I actually bought PDF Expert before the Adobe app existed. PDF Expert might have other features that differentiate it.

    I just downloaded Acrobat to see for myself. It's much more limited in these ways:

    1. You can't edit a PDF, that is change the existing text.
    2. The markup pen and text tool are only in red and on e thickness.
    3. In PDF Expert, you can add a blank sheet to a document so you can write notes about it.
    4. PDF Expert has a stamp tool with preset stamps as well as customizable stamps.
    5. PDF Expert has shape tools.
    6. PDF Expert has a palm-reject pullover screen.
    7. The Focus tool, which (for me) is worth the price.

    8. Adobe Acrobat allows you to scan documents, which PDF Expert doesn't.
