Markup - Annotate, Grade, and Sign PDF Documents, Contracts, Forms, Notes, Papers, Assignments, and Blueprints
By Learnbat, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Markup is the easiest way to annotate documents on the iPad.
Markup is a game-changer for teachers, who can now use their iPads to grade assignments, and not have to deal with stacks of papers on their desks.
And Markup isn't just for teachers to use as a essay, paper, or homework grader. Lawyers who review contracts, writers who edit manuscripts, contractors who mark up blueprints - virtually anyone can use Markup to "go paperless."
Markup's killer feature is Email Sync, which assigns each user a unique email address. Every document sent to this email address is automatically imported into the Markup app. This way, teachers can simply ask their students to send their assignments to the teacher's Sync email. No need to waste class time printing, collecting and handing out assignments.
Markup supports a ton of filetypes through Email Sync, including PDF, DOC (Word documents), RFT, TXT, JPG, PNG, TIFF, PPT (Powerpoint presentations), CSV, XLS (Excel spreadsheets).
And if you don't want to use Email Sync, no worries - you can still open documents from your iPad with Markup, using the "Open in app" functionality for annotation. This works with Dropbox, Google Drive (formerly Google Docs), Mail, Safari, Gmail, Chrome, Goodreader, iBooks, etc.
Markup is brought to you by the creators of ShowMe Interactive Whiteboard, one of the most popular iPad apps for education.

What's New in Version 1.0.3
- Fix a bug that was causing some crashes
Better Apps out there
I was so excited to see this app. Since I'm teaching totally online this year, I thought this was the perfect solution. I really like the ease of use but after 4 papers, it started crashing on me. I couldn't get it to reopen and had to restart the ipad. I don't have time to do that after every 4 papers graded. After reading that it doesn't work with gmail, I knew I had to move to something different. I'll do more homework next time as I see it hasn't been updated since June of 2013. That should've been a clue. Kind of feels like the developer gave up on it. The website wasn't much help either.
Good concept, but there's better apps out there.
Good start--needs flexibility
Basic functions are fine, and it's a great concept. The altered form comes back as a PDF, which makes sense. However, something about that PDF doesn't play nice with Gmail; when the attached PDF comes back in Gmail it shows as a broken PDF and won't display or open from within the Gmail web page. The file opens fine within the Mac "Mail" app. The PDF shows fine in the iOS "Mail" app as well, but can't be opened from there into any other app.
The concept for this app is a great one, especially for teachers like me who are trying to cut down on paper usage. Unfortunately, the app doesn't seem to work well. My students have been trying to email me their work (to the markupsync email address provided) for review and so far nothing has synced and appeared. Disappointing. Hope this gets sorted out quickly.
Also, it would be nice if there were zoom features to allow for adding comments in a more clear way.
A additional pen colors, and highlighters would also be great
