iAnnotate PDF: Save, Read & Annotate PDF Documents [ iOS & Android Tablets] (5 Free Licences)

MOin 12-11-2012

Today tablets come with display screens that are large enough to conveniently read, create, and edit digital documents. There are numerous apps that let you view the contents of the most commonly used digital document file formats. However these apps wrap the text or use other techniques to accommodate the documents on the device which, in turn, modifies how you view the documents – you do not view the document in its original form and layout.


Furthermore, you still have to transfer the document to a desktop application in case you want to comment on parts of the file or annotate it for online collaboration. But these problems associated with viewing digital documents on your on tablet devices are now removed by a very useful app called iAnnotate PDF.

iAnnotate PDF is an application that comes for iOS and Android tablet devices. While the app has versions for both operating systems, the iOS version seems to be the latest one and equipped with the latest features. The foremost feature of the app is letting you view digital documents in their original layout – the way they were meant to be viewed. Supported file formats include PDF, DOC, DOCX, PPT, and PPTX – therefore not only are you able to view documents but also presentations as well.

The next prominent feature of the app is that it lets you annotate documents. Annotation options include highlighting text, drawing, and leaving comments.

Your edited documents can be conveniently synchronized with your accounts on iTunes, DropBox, Box, or WebDAV. You can also store your documents on your device and easily manage them through the app.

The Android version of the app is free but the iOS version is priced at $9.99. However the app’s developers have generously offered 5 free promo codes to the first 5 commenters of this post.

    I love this product; however, there are so many flaws with it. Why can't I save the files I create in iAnnotate on Dropbox or to a file or something? That's absurd to create the file but then you can't use it on any other device other than the tablet. Also, the program really needs an eraser button. Holding down the pen to delete something takes way too long. I use this program all the time, but I think somebody else needs to create a similar product so there is more competition to give the customers what they want.

    Thanks , I just tried it and appears to work; however the features are not nearly as good or intuitive as WritePDF. This is on an iPad ; I don't have an Android, so couldn't comment on that.

    Sounds great, though I wonder how practical this is on a smartphone screen.

    This looks like it will solve a problem our school librarian and I were discussing earlier today.
