Video: How To Annotate A PDF Document On The iPad

iPad and StylusWhen I want to review and annotate, or mark up, a PDF, I do it almost exclusively on my iPad.

For me, it is a nice all-digital workflow that avoids the print-out-and-write dance. I can then save or share the annotated PDF right from my iPad.

There are many apps that can do this, such as iAnnotate, PDFpen for iPad, and PDF Expert, but the one that I am used to is called GoodReader. GoodReader is the one that is shown in this video, but the general concept is similar.

I assume that this can be done on an Android tablet as well. If you have an app you like for this, please leave a comment and let us know.

I really liked the idea of having the notes and being able to annotate them and have syncing of the notes between my iPhone and iPad. Excellent post! Thanks for the suggestions and recommendations.
