Misunderstandings about pdf-notes:
- Not only pdf-notes but every app recently updated is removed from the open-in menu because iOS5 or formers currently show only 10 apps in open-in menu.
- iPad/iphone Mail/iBooks can't display PDF annotations so that please open it in the other pdf apps.
- please visit the support site for more information http://bit.ly/f6D31P

Thank you very much~ ^^

Almost perfect


This app is fantastic. Unfortunately, I had to stop using it and switch to another pdf annotator... The only thing I disliked about this app is that if you switch from it to another app, when you go back, you get a quick view of the library and wait for your last pdf to open again. This does happen very fast, but I often need to read textbooks and lectures in pdf and write about them. It got vey annoying to switch to a writing app, type, go back to the pdf, wait for it to reload, and do this over and over...
I will gladly go back to using this app and would even purchase the paid version once there's at least a setting to fix this.
Other than that, this is the best pdf reader/annotator I have tried so far. I love the preview pages function that lets you scroll through miniatures and view the pages in sequence. Pages load instantaneously. Another nice addition would be the ability to add just plain text on the pdf, not like the post it comment there is now. But this is a minor issue for me, it would just be nicer.
Keep up the good work guys, I look forward to using pdf notes again!

Incredible, 6 stars


I just got the free version ofthis app about a week ago and I've never reviewed an app before but this one is so great that I felt obligated to. As a grad student, I constantly read journal articles. This app lets me hi-lite in different colors, draw/write on the PDF, type up collapsible post-it's all over, zoom, swipe between papers, and keep an organized library.

Apparently there were some bugs with it recently but it looks like those have been fixed because I can interact with the app seamlessly. It's incredibly smooth and simple to switch between tools (hi-liter, pen, notes, eraser) and I can zoom/pan the document without changing the tool (just by using two fingers instead of 1). There's a very convenient 'Undo/Redo' feature that uses 3 fingers. There's even a hand 'rest' for those using a stylus.

Love it! For anybody who has to read a lot of PDFs, it's a must have!
