iPad Annotation Tool Expands PDF Manipulation Capabilities
An update has been released for Branchfire's iOS-based annotation tool for students and teachers, iAnnotate.
iAnnotate allows users to write and draw on a variety of document types, including PDF, Word documents, PowerPoint files, and image files. It also incorporates search tools; Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive integration; the ability to create PDFs from scratch; and integrated presentation capabilities.
The latest version, 2.7, adds the ability to rearrange pages in a PDF and includes a new wrist guard feature that creates safe zones for the user to rest his or her wrist while annotating.
Other features include:
- Process status view;
- The ability to left-align text in pop-up notes; and
- Performance and stability improvements.
The full version of iAnnotate for iPad is available temporarily for $1.99 (through Sept. 13). After that, it will be $9.99.
A free, limited version of the app for Android is also available, with a full version on the way, according to Branchfire.
