10 Great Annotating Apps for iPad

iTunes store is like a bottomless well full of apps in whatever direction you want. The deeper I delve into it the more discoveries I make as to the apps that works for us in education. Each day I receive dozens of emails from people asking me to review their apps or feature them in the lists I make here, for these people I say please again and again, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning does not do paid reviews, we feature only  apps that have educational value for our readers, if you don't have an educational app then no need to write to us,your email will just end up in  trash. I am really sorry but I have to say this because it is too much , there are  teachers who send me emails asking for help about something and I miss their emails because of the trash I get from some app developers. I hope this is clear.

For today's post, I am proving you with a list of some great apps to make annotations on your iPad. Check them out below and let us know what you think about them.

  1. For PDF reading and annotation, I haven't found anything that beats GoodReader. It has all the right tools, it allows easy zooming so that handwritten notes and annotations can be added, and its inking is smooth. It also has lots of other nice features like bookmarking, which are essential for serious reading and annotation.
