    IPad has an "iannotate" application that allows you to HIGHLIGHT and Insert Comments into PDF's. Is there ANY applications to do this on the apad? Also, is there any PDF converter apps???

    "verbtex latex editor" looks like something you might be interested in, i have never used it but it looks alright. also "documents to go full" and maybe "pdf utility"

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    There is Scan2PDF . (Link is a review) I cannot speak to how it works. I use the PC version and am quite happy. I have been tempted to evaluate, but have not had the need yet.

    I don't think both suggested apps will do what we wish to do. I want same annotation feature for the books I have in pdf. I heard that kindle has this feature and you can read pdf in kindle it suppose to be ok but I haven'y try yet due to kindle downloading problems. will let you know if I can manage.

    This is the first kind of software I was hoping to find. I review mostly pdf documents and it would be a great if a software could do some simple editing, highlighting, comments and adding notes. Then its a perfect 10.

    Sadly to date, I have not found anything close enough.

    Moon Reader will do this for all common ebook formats except PDF. I'm asking the developrs of Aji Annotate Reader , currently on iPad only, to port to Android tablets.

    PS I have the gTablet by ViewSonic with TNT firmware. For a <$400 tablet, it's fantastic.

    Approved App is an Annotation and Stamp Approval app that can be used to annotate pdf and png files. Contains provision to highlight,mark with pen and comment with callout.
    you can also add signature and time to the document.

    Bumping this thread up, requesting updated replies. I just received a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 as a gift. I prefer to handwrite notes in meetings, and to annotate documents (I am usually reviewing PDFs or Word documents) with pen, highlighter and sticky notes on paper -- but I want to use my tablet as a substitute for paper and pen. Any apps that do just that? I don't need bells and whistles. A friend uses GoodReader on her iPad but I see that it is not available for Android.

    In a perfect world my app will also let me store my handwritten notes, make them searchable (is that possible?), and let me save them to files that I can also access from my PC. I use Dropbox but I am not wedded to it, if there is a better way to do that.

    Thank you in advance! Hope I didn't make a mistake getting the Galaxy; I had read that it is the best choice for people who want to handwrite notes on documents.

    Lisa
