iAnnotate for BlackBerry Dynamics is all new and better than ever. It’s the best way to read, annotate, and share PDFs in a secure environment. Over 1 million people turn to iAnnotate to take notes, sign agreements, highlight documents, insert stamps and more.

New in this version: iPhone support, iPad Pro and multitasking support, automatic Apple Pencil detection, shape annotations, support for Launcher, and more.

iAnnotate’s award-winning interface and customizable set of features make it the go-to app for taking notes on lecture slides, annotating important business documents, revising screenplays, grading papers, and any other task that requires taking notes on top of your documents. Read on to learn about the great capabilities of iAnnotate:

IPHONE: Now you can use iAnnotate on your phone, with all of the great features you’ve come to expect on your iPad.

IPAD PRO: iAnnotate works great with the iPad Pro. Automatically annotate when you use the Apple Pencil and easily pan, zoom, scroll with your fingers — no tool switching required. Get more work done with iOS multitasking and smart keyboard shortcuts.

ANNOTATE: Choose from the pen, highlighter, typewriter, stamp, straight-line, note, underline, strikeout, photo, voice recording, arrow, rectangle, circle, and date stamp tools.

CUSTOMIZE: Drag and drop tools to your custom toolbars. Swipe between toolbars, or open the Toolbox to access all your tools.

ACCESS: Open documents from other secure apps, or through Launcher. Save them back to email or store when you’re done.

SEARCH: Search documents in your local library and throughout your cloud storage.

FLATTEN: Compress your annotations onto the document to prevent modification. This is useful for preserving signatures or for preventing recipients from deleting or changing your annotations.

NAVIGATE: Explore your documents by thumbnails, bookmarks, annotations, or search results.

UNLIMITED TABS: Open multiple documents in tabs, and easily navigate between them, on both tablet and phone.

MANAGE: Arrange documents by folders and sort contents by date added, date last opened, or alphabetical order.

CREATE: Create brand new PDFs with blank, lined, or graph-paper pages.

MODIFY: Add, delete, rotate, and rearrange pages in your documents.

SUMMARIZE: Forward a summary of your annotations as an email or a new PDF.

SECURE: Fully supported by the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK.

Ratings and Reviews

Great app, but since iOS11 is destroys battery life


Almost unusable post iOS11. iPad gets hot and battery gone in 3 hours

Need some work

Still some bugs that need to be worked out. Used to have a link in iAnnotate 3 so I could more easily move a PDF from Good for Work into iAnnotate - in the new version the quick link button is missing. Also, Apple Pencil does not work as well with the new version - I used to be able to move up and down from one page to the next in a document by swiping up or down with my Apple Pencil…but that functionality does not work in the new iAnnotate.



This is a good app outside the Blackberry universe. This version of the app -- built for the blackberry universe -- regularly loses all annotations. Ive had hours of work wasted on multiple occasions. I like the features, but that one flaw makes it 100% unusable. Do not make the same mistake I did by trusting this app.
