iannotate vs pdf expert

Now that iannotate pdf is on sale, i'm very tempted to pick it up. however i'm kinda turned off by its UI and prefer the look of pdf expert. Features wise, I think they are about equal.
What do you guys think?

I'm in the exact same situation. They seem to have the same features, but iAnnotate claims to be the only App on iPad with continuous scrolling, which would be useful for me. On the other hand, the library view/UI looks worse on iAnnotate.

I think I'll pick up iAnnotate just because it's on sale.

Definitely PDF Expert. For the following reasons:
-UI is clean and simple
-Auto-synch with Dropbox works great
-I prefer the layout of the annotation tools over iAnnotate

The only thing I wish PDF Expert would incorporate is continuous scrolling and make the application universal for use on the iPhone.

I have used both and I prefer iAnnotate. When I first got my iPad, I used PDF Expert because its user interface was much better than iAnnotate's. However, about six months ago or so (can't remember exactly) iAnnotate did a major overhaul of their library and it's much better now. Feature wise, iAnnotate is packed, and has a few more options than PDF Expert. Personally, I also find continuous scrolling a must because I work with a lot of long documents.

Having said that, PDF Expert is also a very high quality app and you can't really go wrong with either - but iAnnotate is my first choice. I've written more about its features and how I use it here.

Is there a way in iAnnotate to backup a local folder to Dropbox or box? I converted webpages in the app to .pdf and they automatically saved into a local folder. I want to be able to back that folder up to box or dropbox. thanks for the help.

I have connected my entire literature folder in dropbox to iAnnotate. iAnnotate will mirror the folders you select, and sync either one way or two ways, depending on your preferences.
