As the summer approaches it brings with it the 2015 Regional Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses. This service year people around the earth will be invited and delighted to attend the “Imitate Jesus!” conventions. As much as the conventions days are a joy to attend, many of us want to stretch the joy over the following months by reviewing well-taken notes. This year Jehovah’s organization has thrilled many of us by releasing an new interactive program [available here]. This new interactive program is formatted to help convention goers to take better notes. The program includes linked talk titles and songs. Yet many have wondered, what is the best app for taking notes on the new interactive program?
We’ve tried a number of note taking apps with the new interactive program. Many of these can be found in our list of the best file management apps for iPhone and iPad. But one app stands out above the crowd as the best. That is PDF Expert. Actually, PDF Expert is our favorite app for storing, reading, and annotating PDF documents. Not only does it handle PDFs beautifully, it will also store and play videos and music. You’ll be able to view Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents too. So the app is definitely worth the investment! If you’re looking for cheaper alternatives,check out Easy Annotate and JW Companion. They too handle the interactive program well, but that are less refined apps overall.
Once you’ve downloaded PDF Expert, visit JW.org at this link to download the interactive program. Then instead of tapping Open in iBooks in the upper right corner, select Open In… in the upper left. This will bring up the option to open the program in PDF Expert.
If you’re planning to use your iPad to take notes at the convention, don’t forget to use the four-fingered gestures to swipe between the JW Library app and PDF Expert. Just drag four of your fingers across the iPad screen to quickly switch between open apps.
Getting ready for the 2015 conventions is almost as exciting as the convention days themselves. And now the interactive program will make it that much easier to pay attention to the spiritual banquet as it unfolds. If you’ve found exciting ways to use PDF Expert in your theocratic routine, or you have questions about the app, let us know in the comments below!
