One feature I’m particularly interested in is night mode. I tend to do a lot of reading of agenda papers and minutes late at night, so having the option to use night mode will help to keep me in the good books with my wife while she is trying to sleep.
However, I’m not so happy about the general performance of the app. It’s sluggish. Every time I open it, it seems to take ages to actually load a document – since the update, this seems to have gotten worse. I also found that the scrolling performance is horrible, and is made even worse when switching to night mode. These performance issues might be specific to me and my devices, but they’re bad enough for me to start looking for an alternative PDF reader.
