I like it but I wish it did more

So far this is the best pdf tool that I have found for win8. It is easy to highlight and underline with my trackpad, which is great. However, I found the writing with my touch screen or trackpad to be useless to take notes. So I wish the writing feature was better and that I could type notes using my keyboard.

Love the app!

One major complaint is that I cannot add notes to a highlighted section of text. Would really love that functionality as many other free apps have that capability.

No eraser nor continuous viewing

It is very frustrating to work on a PDF when if you write a note and don't immediately realize you don't want it there is no way to go back and delete the comment. It is especially frustrating that you can't un-highlight something save the undo button. Basically, there needs to be a way to erase the edits you make. Also no option for continuous pages is pretty annoying.

Horrible. Don't buy this app.

I saw all the bad reviews for this app, but I bought it anyway because I ONLY wanted to use it to highlight text from PDFs. Well, it turns out that the highlight feature does not work at all. I mean, I am completely unable to highlight even one word. Worst three dollars I have ever spent.

Horrendous execution

At first glance this app appears to be very good. The drawing feature is the main reason why I bought this app since it offered more color options than the reader app built into windows 8. That turned out to be a huge mistake. For one thing, the pen input does not allow you to edit changes or errors once you exit that tool. For example, while sampling the tools, I made a couple of inadvertent red triangles on a text document I was working on and did not notice them until after I switched to another tool. I assumed you could just use the pen eraser or something to fix it like Reader or any other pen enabled app. But that is not the case. Any edits you make can only be undone by an awkward "undo" feature that only works while you are actively within that tool. So if your working with a red pen and then switch to a blue pen and discover that you need to change the red markings you are out of luck. And it auto saves. I clicked the don't save button to no avail. Don't buy!

Awful app - do not buy

Editing markups/notes after the fact seems to be impossible (if there is some magical way to do so then it is not easy/intuitive enough to do so). This app does not provide the level of performance it claims it does

Great APP - in grad school

Currently working on my MBA in class, was getting very frustrated with Adobe Acrobat for doing markups with my Surface Pro 2 pen, found this App after reading a quick review on ZD Net. Very happy with this app. Great work.

No typing feature

The app is good for highlighting, underlining and stylus writing, but It does not have an option for typing side notes.
