Years later and performance still is terrible

I've used this app since it was first released. I've always run a current gen i5 processor: Asus EP121 430U; Samsung 700T 3317U; Surface Pro 2 /3 4300U; Surface Book 6300U; Not with any PC has the 3d animated page flipping performed well. I don' think the authors care. And text rendering isn't as good as Drawboard PDF.

i think that soda is the best pdf reader .first , it mix between accesibility and performance .second the realistic view is something new for me .and finally it never need a i7 or i5 processor to run it

Amazing Design, but Struggles with Large PDFs

Soda has everything I want in a PDF reader - except speed. Excellent home screen, tons of features, all laid out logically. You can do anything you need quickly and easily. But Soda can't smoothly read larger PDFs like textbooks, which is what I need. I can't even scroll down half a page without stuttering and loading delays, sometimes taking 4 to 5 seconds. The same files are perfectly smooth in other readers on the same device. However, I like this app so much, I'm still gonna try to use it, but I'm just not sure if I can really deal with it long term.

good but needs work

I like the idea of reading a pdf like a book turning pages like a real book but there needs to be an option to enlarge the print in the 3d reader it is to small I have bad eye site and love reading books but cant any more I have to read them on my touch screen laptop soda pdf 3d reader is good but please make it where I can in large the print in 3d mood

Very close

This app is almost there. As others have said, it lags quite badly (I use a Surface RT). Having said that, if it were smoother it would be an app I'd pay for as I'd use it a lot for presentations.

Nice App

the 3D navigation is awesome. need to smoothen scrolling and page navigation in the other views. Would be great if we add a way to maintain a pdf collection library (with thumbnail view) the music app maintains a music collection.

Love it

The program is the same as PDF, however, I enjoy it far more when I am required to read pages upon pages of documents. I prefer the book style format that it offers. Not only do I use it for my phone, but I have it installed on all my window 8 computers. To some it may be useless but its depends on your perspective and how you operate while reading large files.

Used this application for about 1/2 hour and so far I'm impressed. Sync between computers will be nice but so far I could search, highlight, make notes.

Is there anyway to set more options?

Such as by default turning off the 3D view? This would be and is almost a perfect reader for me, and the 3D is nice but I do not need it. Also, I would like to be an option to set the first page as a cover page under two page side by side mode so that the first page only shows, then the rest are two side by side. Sets some documents with a cover correctly especially ones that span two pages with diagrams.
