PDF Review Free
By Sander Weltje
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This is the free 'try before you buy' version of Pdf Review. Pdf Review is an annotation tool for pdf that has an ordered list containing the feedback and notes without obfuscating the original pdf. It supports the full review workflow. Reviewers can easily add feedback with a single tap and send an organized report to the author. The author can merge all feedback into a single list and assign actions to them. The free version has limited functionality like the restriction on the number of feedback per review.
Reviewing can be a cumbersome task. Creating a spreadsheet with feedback where the line numbers have to match the numbers in the document. Browsing through the sheets and document for the feedback being discussed in the meeting. Collecting all feedback and ordering them manually by page and line number.
To make reviewing more productive Pdf Review was created. It will keep the feedback and notes organized and relates to the document without the need of line numbers. Selecting the feedback from the list will automatically show the correct page and a highlighted area where the feedback applies. A review report will be generated and can be send to the author. Ordering the feedback from multiple reviewers will be done automatically when they are imported into Pdf Review.
The organized list of notes and the ability to add comments for the whole document makes Pdf Review not only useful for reviews but also for writing a summary or cheat sheet while studying or reading pdf documents.
