"I’ve finally found the best all-in-one image annotation tool for iOS – Annotable for iPhone and iPad." —— Federico Viticci of MacStories

Features (many are free, some are unlocked with purchases):
◉ All the expected common tools: rectangles, ovals, arrows, lines and texts.
◉ Fully customizable: colors, sizes, outlines, fonts…
◉ Stylishly obscure private information with Blur and Pixelation.
◉ Or on the contrary, highlight something with Spotlights.
◉ If you really want to focus on a particular spot use a Loupe.
◉ You can even highlight text on screenshots of apps like Notes, Twitter, and Safari. It feels like magic, and can really save the day when you want to share a web page screenshot with some words highlighted but forgot to select the words when you took the screenshot.
◉ Fully support Action Extension, Photo Editing Extension, Edits Sync via iCloud Photo Library, URL Schemes, 3D Touch, Wide Color…Annotable utilizes your powerful iOS system to the extreme.

Distinctions from many other similar Apps:
◆ All the results are high-resolution images.
◆ Not only screenshots but all images are supported.
◆ Large images can be directly annotated and do not have to be cropped.

What's New

Version 2.5

* Support for new iPad Pros and iOS 12.1.

* Accessibility improvement: when Reduce Transparency is turned on in system settings, buttons for Spotlight tools are more visible now.

* Bug fix: in version 2.4 I accidentally made pointers of Text and Loupe too small. If you don't know what I am talking about, go add a text or loupe, keep it selected, drag its center point(I call it pointer) out, then tap it.

😍 love at first pixel obscuration 🤓❤️

(UPDATED: I’ll say it again) THIS is THE app to use for your image annotation needs. It’s indispensable!!!! Worth paying for every option. I can’t tell you how nicely it’s made informative images stand out so that they do their duty! I’ve used Annotable for editing images such as bug report screenshots, highlighting maps and directions, even to annotate screenshots of friends text messages to prove a point to them! With a UI layout that is easy to remember, and functions that are VITAL, this is the cake right here!

Thank you Awesome Developer for taking the time to reply to my review. I hope See you on the TestFlight flipside 😉

Developer Response

I'm really glad you like Annotable. Yes, I'll consider making a macOS version. I just don't have enough time recently.


My most favorite annotation tool

This is hands-down, the best annotation tool for iOS. The *only* feature I want yet is text alignment. I keep finding myself wanting to center the text. I hope the developer adds it someday. I encourage my clients to install this, pay for the features, and then I teach them how to use it. It’s so much easier to document things from their device when Annotable is installed! Please keep up the great work!!

Developer Response

Hi, I'm glad you like Annotable:) About text alignment, it is determined by the text style. There are 5 styles, the stamp and label styles(the last 2) use center alignment. To change text style tap the bottom left button when a text or the text tool is selected. You'll see the styles along the diagonal.

Edit after save

Good app as long as you annotate correctly the first time. After saving I have found no way to reopen the project and change anything after saving it. You are able to add to but not edit anything saved previously.

Yes Thank You. I did find the save feature in the extension and that does allow one to make it editable after saving. Upgraded to 5
Star. Thanks for getting back to me.

Developer Response

Hi, Annotable supports editable savings. How are you currently saving annotated pictures? Are you using the main app or app extensions? If possible please use Email Feedback in Settings for that's much more convenient for communication.
