February 11, 2012 in Productivity
[prMac.com] Odessa, Ukraine - Today Readdle released Remarks, its brand new application for handwriting, note taking and PDF annotating on the iPad. It lets people replace paper for writing notes, making sketches and drafting ideas. At the same time, Remarks is a powerful PDF annotation tool that can be used to review documents, make comments in textbooks.
Taking notes in class, on a meeting, during a conversation with a customer or on the sofa at home is a breeze with Remarks. The application has been designed for convenient writing including every required tool: a number of paper types, pens and highlighters of different colors, floating text boxes, several shapes and an eraser.
Adding annotations, notes and comments to existing PDF documents is another task which can be easily accomplished with the help of Remarks. People can easily highlight text in PDF files, write comments on top of the text, draw simple schemes and diagrams.
"Many iPad owners are using the device in class and at work. In some cases they want to make notes on the iPad, in others they want to comment on existing documents, so what they need is a product that can do both," noted Alex Tyagulsky, Readdle CMO. "That makes Remarks exactly the application they have been looking for."
Remarks has many impressive capabilities but one of them stands out - namely collaboration. Notes that are shared via email can be opened and changed by any other person who uses Remarks. Moreover, those notes are editable with Adobe Reader and Apple Preview on the Mac and PC.
"It's amazing that you can pick up somebody else's note and change it just as if you were its creator. What's even more important - you can edit your note on the iPad, computer and even Android tablet with a decent PDF application. Your notes are not locked inside the application, they are truly yours," said Alex Tyagulsky, Readdle CMO.
