neu.Annotate PDF

If you haven’t already had the opportunity to download this free app, you should give it a try. This allows you to open a PDF file and annotate or grade it like you would traditionally.
  • creates an electronic copy of corrections and notes
  • great for online classes where students submit essays
  • easier to use than using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes
  • switching between different pen colors and highlighters is easier
  • can create a bank of common notes to use over and over
  • can insert images from your camera roll (library of images)
  • have to use a stylus and learn to write with a stylus
  • switching between tools can be a little tricky
  • can only annotate PDF files
  • can only email the document from the email account associated with the iPad
Below is a video I created to illustrate what you can do with it. I sped up the video, so you wouldn’t have sit through all the boring details. I did not use the iPad to create or edit the video.


  1. Rochelle - I love reading/viewing your posts, thanks for sharing this video! This looks like a great app that would have appeal across many disciplines.

  2. Not only do I love the app, I want to know how to create a quick video like that...we may need to meet sometime! :-)
