    Hello, as the title states, I am looking for PDF reader app in which I can search for words.

    And DOC reader with this ability would be great too :)


    Thank you

    Most of them do. I recommend GoodReader.

    You cannot in preview type in the word you want to search for.

    ----------

    I have GoodReader for iPad but I did not find there the thing I am looking for.

    I mean, I type in word, and it will search for it in text.

    Once opened the PDF in GR tap once into the document. On the lower screen should come a toolbar with he search function ... Type the word in the list and search.

    Adobe Reader would also an alternative; search is a bit easier; but in general I also would recommend GR.

    Goodreader is a good choice. I personally prefer PDF Expert over it though.
