Readdle’s Remarks is another iOS PDF reader application which can be useful for those folks who dislike paper when it comes to taking notes.
Users can bring their PDF files into this $5 application using several approaches. For example, they can utilize the old proven methods of iTunes file sync and email while they can also take advantage of such popular newfangled cloud services as Google Docs, Dropbox, Skydrive and any webdav server will suffice too. Though this app doesn’t support iCloud; it offers duplex folder syncing with the previously mentioned Dropbox and Skydrive.
Like many other PDF reader applications Remarks enables its users to mark up their documents by simply making use of underlining, highlighting and a number of strike-thru effects. Unfortunately, to get rid of a wrong highlight one needs to terminate everything on the page.
It’s not a problem to underline, highlight or strike text in PDF files with this capable app. It also allows users to make text boxes using lots of sizes, fonts and colors.
There’s a possibility of inserting pictures, drawing geometric shapes and creating text boxes with a wide array of fonts, sizes, and colors. Both shapes and text boxes are situated above the page and users can move the resize them. In order to duplicate a shape, one only needs to double-tap on it.
The pen tool ensures smooth drawing and writing freehand and the eraser tool is good at erasing shapes. Though it’s possible to draw with a finger but a stylus ensures better results.
For each document, the app gives a thumbnail view of all available pages with a possibility of removing, adding, rearranging pages and so on.
The application actually offers a wide array of worthy tools which can be used for making basic notes as well as annotations. On the other hand many of these tools can’t be directly accessed via the touch screen so extra tapping is required here. Nevertheless Remarks is a fully functional tool ideally suited for making PDF annotations and taking notes on fly. Furthermore the upcoming 1.4 update will support audio notes thus making the app more suitable for classes and meetings.
