It started out ok but most recently every time I try to use it I get an error and the pdf never opens. I will have to uninstall and find another app.

Like so many others have written, it simply doesn't work. The repeated message it gives is there is no connection - but there must be a connection to download the files. A real waiste of time

I usually refuse to give 5 stars to an app that prompts you to rate it after your first actual use. This fixes a serious enough fault on Google's end (and hasn't hit me with any advertising . . yet) that I am making an exception. The (default) PDF preview from gmail does not allow for select/copy. This does. I have not experimented with the PDF editing or creation tools yet, but in the interest of a full review, they are there and look nice. Recommended.

Does not work - EVER! It doesn't open any files and will take over being the default, without giving one the ability to remove it as a default app.

In my situation where I had to draw a signature on a PDF online it worked perfectly, although the controls are a bit off the abilities of this application are sufficient for basic use. Pretty useful overall

I didn't think it was really possible to make it hard to open, edit and save PDF files. Kudos to the team at Lumin for proving me wrong. I use this once every 3 months and then uninstall it straight away because it is just the worst UX and functionality combination. This extension actually makes me want to die and get re-incarnated as a forest animal so I can live in an environment where this doesn't exist.

Doesn't work at all. Simpler to just download things from my drive and use the pdf reader that comes on my computer. At least that works.

I concur with the many users who have been critical of the reliability of this app. This app is indeed hit or miss. Also, I am paying for the supposed fully functioning version. And not only do I often experience difficulty simply loading a document to view, it is a real chore to use the various functions to enhance a document; the functions are not always responsive.
