Best Windows 8 Apps
22 August 2016
Makes editing & signing PDF's very easy.

Is there a option to turn off the gadget floating on the screen? The favorite toolbar is enough for editing. The others are good.

This is a great PDF editor with superior editing capabilities. Highly recommend

This is a great product, works exceptionally well with pen enabled tablet, but does not require it. I use it almost every day.

Sold as a 8.1 app. Paid $6.99. Tried out windows 10, found I did not like for several reasons, uninstalled. This app uninstalled itself. Has 2 places in its CURRENT documentation that say 8.1 AND 10. Also has 2 places that say Windows 10 only BUT GUESS WHAT - NOT AS PROMINENTLY. Inconsistent documentation. Stole my money. I would appreciate my $6.99 back, please. Yeah, I know, isn't happening. Is the term "scumbags" swearing, or is it just an honest description of Drawboard?

Very good program. It would be 5 stars if you could swap pages around (i.e. make page 3 become page 5). I love all of the tools available to utilize. I wouldn't want to be without drawboard!
The only thing missing is PDF printer otherwise great PDF editor

This app has allowed me to process paperwork on my surface without having to print it, process, scan and resend it. Allows me to be more efficient. Only reason for 4 stars is I would love to have the ability to have more color choices for my pen and it can be hard to insert text. Maybe some bug fixes?
If it doesn't crash just before I manage to save, that's cool. The autosave helps a lot now.

I have purchased it twice Spring 2015 (home), Feb2016 (work) for two different SurfacePro3's. There is a persistent problem with having annotations disappear from the pdf.
Even after complaining in the forum, emails to customer support, you get the usual "we are working on it" , or "there is a new version that will fix the problem". Don't believe it.
It is not a matter a of a few $, it's the huge amount of time you will waste trying to use the program.

Most useful program since the old zebra millipens that I used with paper schematics and drawings years ago. Can't annotate PDFs like the old paper ways. This is the closest I have found to that method. Couple of things I would like to see changed, but overall a very useful item for anyone needing to make notes or otherwise mark up on the fly.
I have tried other programs and just not as happy with them. Have not wanted to buy Adobe just to see if I would like it. You can do the same thing in note, but you have to print the PDF to it and then write all over it. But the notes are not saved in your original PDF, not as efficient. So far this one has been the most useable for me.

Useless! I want a refund

Great App for note taking and sending comments while on the road and traveling! As a Regional Financial Controller, I receive numerous PDF Files on a daily basis and this allows me to quickly make notes and observations for the operations team to take action on.

I am mostly using this to mark up technical drawings. Drawboard will help me save some trees and a lot of red ink.
15 April 2016
Includes simple features like writing and highlighting, but has options like deleting pages (AMAZING) and inserting shapes.

This app fulfills all my inking/annotation/highlighting needs and is better than several other PDF applications I have tried. It seems reasonably stable so long as you don't open too many documents at the same time, and the layout is very convenient.
29 March 2016
So worth it
28 March 2016
Love it. extremely easy to use and can do everything you want it to do. You are able to draw write highlight things its super lovely and useful.
20 March 2016
There are issues with inserting text.
16 March 2016
Could be a bit easier to navigate but overall strong app. I mainly use it to add various colored revisions to PDF documents, and it does the trick
15 March 2016
Works for me.
13 March 2016
Lots of functionality with pen type and color. Does crash from time to time, but keeps thing saved. Would like to know if it is possible to move the zoom buttons, I keep accidentally adjusting the zoom level with my palm while inking.
7 March 2016
I like the app, but having issues with signature
25 February 2016
worth the $10
Easy to use and can be used with a stylus or your finger for making notes.
19 February 2016
Needs a "lock zoom" feature for percentage zoom, not only for the presets ("fit page width" etc). Needs a "lock orientation" feature.
16 February 2016
One of the better PDF readers/annotate for Windows. A "Table of Contents/Bookmark" view function similar to Adobe would make this application great.
13 February 2016
uninstalled itself and refuses to install again. and the useless website has no contact form. I want my money back.
5 February 2016
Frustrating to use because the erase functionality of the pen is not compatible? Have tried many different methods of activating the pen including changing the erase settings, and closing and restarting the app.
Also, zoom is only available through using the + and - icons. Really really annoying.
The lack of this feature makes note taking and annotation frustrating. To be honest, at this point the only advantage over annotating in .PDF reader is the availability of color.
Pretty upset I spent $10 on this.
