    I just downloaded Goodreader 4. Settings does not appear to have a ‘Migrate from Goodreader 3’ line, though I have Gr 3.19.2 on my iPad.

    I had to go to settings in my OLD Goodreader (V3.xx), where a bar similar to that in your illustration offers to migrate to Goodreader 4. No such bar in settings in V4 on my iOS 9 device. I don’t know what old version Goodreader, just that data is said to migrate from Goodreader 3.
    SO, if original instructions above fail/ cannot be carried out, open your old Goodreader, check settings and see if there’s an option to ‘Migrate to Goodreader $4 at the bottom as in the illustration above.

      Same in here, and I get files from many years on GoodReader, it’s ashame that we buy an app and the company who makes it has so few attention to the customers files, what Indeed is the point to sell an app like this.

    The transfer by ITunes is possible : copy files from GoodReader 3 to desktop and then from desktop to GoodReader 4

        I downloaded the tool, unzipped it, connected my iPad (with GR3 and GR4 already installed), launched the tool and my files were there (in the folder called My documents). I couldn’t copy them from GR3 to GR4: I copied them to the desktop and then to GR4 (always in My documents). A little time-consuming but effective.

    Hey, GoodReader makers, why give your users the middle finger? I buy your new app and no file transfer? Refund and find an app created by people who aren’t jerks.

    Catrionapotts…did you the usb you refer to with your computer, or did you somehow transfer the files on the same iPad? Sorry to be thick! Would appreciate your help.

      You have to use your computer in order to transfer your files on the same iPad (at least I had to). I downloaded the tool, unzipped it, connected my iPad (with GR3 and GR4 already installed), launched the tool and my files were there (in the folder called My documents). I couldn’t copy them from GR3 to GR4: I copied them to the desktop and then to GR4 (always in My documents). A little time-consuming but effective. Hope this helps.

    Does it make a difference if one’s iPad is backed up in iCloud…can one down load the contents of Goodreader 3 into Goodreader 4 that way?

    No problem using the Migration Assistant in GoodReader 3. ‘Arse about face’ process, but it works well. Had to delete the contents of each folder, but not a big issue in my case with just 14 folders. Great storage system.
