The only reason I downloaded it was to convert my file to pdf which is pretty simple but I wanted an app to do it. You need to upgrade it in order to convert the file. Which I can do on my computer, but I was gonna use the app for other reasons too.

I wish there was "block highlight" option, for highlighting non-text sections of a pdf. For example, if I'm trying to highlight part of a graph, or part of text that the reader doesn't pick up as text. Just a click and drag to create a rectangle that the app then highlights.

Good enough... The most important thing for me, other than being able to mark up the PDF is to print it, and the way that a printed page with comments looked is not at all satisfactory. I'd very much like a better way to print comments on a PDF rather than widening the page so drastically, essentially having a landscape orientation rather than portrait.

I often received pdf form from the companies, brokers etc. In the past I have to write by hand. Sometimes filled it wrongly and had to re-print and write all over from the start. But now with the Notable PDF, i can type directly on top of the pdf and make changes as necessary and print it or save it as the filled-out pdf forms. This is great app !! Very satisfied..

Was hopeful. First annotation I attempted alerted me to pay up for premium. Xodo does what this one claims without the added premium expense. Hope it isn't a nightmare to uninstall as one reviewer claimed.

Spent twenty minutes annotating a pdf, clicked print and no changes appeared..went back to save then it said I needed a premium account so I clicked on that and then could not return..another bait and switch "free" program

I use it because it is the only viable option that the Chromebooks have to download an app that allows you to comment and mark a document. But it sucks. It takes ages to load a whole file, and it turns the navigation through it very slow. It also has annoying notifications that are impossible to turn off. Moreover, the app has been crashing every 30 minutes since a couple of weeks ago... This has turned my research process into a very frustrating task.

We have been looking for a way to collaborate on PDFs. Making comments and annotations as a tea. This seems to be the answer. I wish it was integrated into Glip, our collaboration platform.

This is a wonderfully useful app- the best in its category, I've found. I do wish that when using a Surface/tablet that the handwriting (drawing) came out cleaner, as this is the most important function for me. I do also think that making people pay to have it automatically save is a bit malicious.

Best option for chromebook owners who want to work with PDFs, but definitely has some issues to work out. I don't like how you can't just copy/paste but have to highlight and then copy to clipboard and then delete the highlight. It's also a little glitchy when handling big files, but that's probably not a huge issue for most people. Overall, a fine app.
