5 out of 5 stars

“ PDF Pals is a great way to interact with multiple PDFs simultaneously on your local device. It's super-helpful when you need the ability to summarize information from multiple documents about a single topic. The ability to customize the AI model settings and the system prompt is also very useful.”
