The only cloud based PDF annotation tool that I will use. I love how beautiful and professional my annotations look when I export the annotated PD. This has allowed me to add clarity (vs handwriting) to insights I provide to student engineering design technical communications.

This app makes it easy for me to make notes in large PDF files that I use for teaching, writing, and learning. Before this app I used A LOT of paper and white out!! Now I can remove and change my notes without the hassle :-)

Only criticism is unable to copy portions of text when needed. I am training my brain to annotate, comment and read online instead of printing and killing trees. It is a process and a learning curve, but this app really helps.

Most reliable PDF viewer I've used on Chrome. I wish the professional version was slightly cheaper because I like supporting projects I find useful.
