Exactly what I was looking for

I am a teacher trying to move toward paperless grading, but my students must still write by hand because that is how the state tests them. I decided to try scanning in their essays and scoring them electronically on my iPad. I've tried a couple other programs, but this one had the features I was looking for. I can click in the margins of a PDF file (created by scanning my students essays to PDF on our school's photocopier) and I can use the stylus function to circle, highlight, or edit text. I also like the option to delete pages since my scanner reads blank notebook paper as a page with content. This is a wonderful program, and it has significantly reduced the size and weight of the pile of papers I carry around.

FINALLY! Just what I was looking for!

If only I had found this earlier! I would have saved myself a ton of time and money. This does EVERYTHING I need it to do. I can highlight both native PDF files and scanned images that were saved as pdfs. (those pesky articles that I have to read for school!) I can write notes for class or type them. I can draw symbols to go with the notes as well. I can even change the color of the text to match the color of the highlighter I used. It is perfect for my needs. I am thrilled with it.

There is just one tiny issue with the inserting additional pdfs, as I would like to group them in one document. I seem to have trouble adding more then single page documents. Its a little thing though, since the rest works so much better then the other ones I have tried!!

The best for forms

If you have documents to annotate or forms to complete, this app does the best job. Forms and documents are easy to open in the app and sending completed documents as pdf files is completed with the click of a button. Just 'open in' Takenotes from email, or dropbox, create a new document and make your notes on a pdf document or fill out the form. The most helpful aspect of this app is the ability to standardize a form, make it a background, and create documents from that form. The downside? No app support. Click the App Support button on itunes and be sent to a page that simply describes the app. If you have questions that are not addressed in the users guide, you are out of luck.
