DEFFINATELY NEEDS A MAGNIFIER!!! Elderly people NEED to magnify the pictures and the text!

I downloaded this app because Reader alone doesn't have as many pen-writing options; however there's a big drawback- lacks such simple functions, even such as ctl+F or even mouse scrolling. NEEDS AN UPDATE, please!

If I knew how to ask for a refund, I would. The sample annotation you see in the gallery? That must have taken 30 minutes to make. Did you make a mistake? Too bad, if you've already moved onto a another annotation, that undo option is gone. It's your only recourse if you need to make changes. There's no erase, select, drag, etc for annotations. This app doesn't offer a trial, because hoping you'll try it and forget it is only way to make money with this sub-par app.

stylus freehand markup works relatively well, but its not accurate enough for handwriting. A text box tool like Adobe desktop has would make this much better.

This is an okay app so far. Some issues I have include: no scrolling ability and the draw function is still buggy (every time you finish writing or drawing something, it morphs the finished product).

Do not get this app whatever you do. It would not save anything I did easily the way it's supposed to. Terrible!!! Eventually it wouldn't even let me in a file I had saved and I had to start all over. Never get

This app does nothing at all. I want a refund now.

Good for highlighting small docs. Poor for large, it freezes up and you lose all your work! Maybe this is user error, but I tried to reach tech support - no phone number - no reply, so I can't say. Unable to search for key words. Unable to use as half screen because it shrinks too small and you cant adjust the size. Now looking for a better option in pdf reader.

I am having trouble downloading this apps. What do you suggest?

Where are the updates and fixes. When will this app will be more stable and compatible with windows 8.1
30 July 2014
Good PDF annotation features but really needs Bookmarks / Outline support
20 July 2014
When it works it is fine but continually crashes and is unstable, especially when you try to open a document that was previously worked on.......... and really needs an update otherwise it is a waste of money

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.
Nice reader but it needs to save your place. If you leave... it forgets. Hopefully you can remember that you left off on page 29.

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!

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
25 February 2014
Come on! I'm not even able to type and comment on what I highlight? And unable to undo underlines and highlights? Is this a joke? I don't understand! It's missing the essentials of pdf note-taking.. Needs a tremendous amount of work..

does not work at all...Windows 8.1 Sony Vaio Fit
17 February 2014
limited options, very hard to navigate and multitask, and it fails to save your work most of the time. disappointed.

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.

Can't even swipe to scroll thru pages. That's just the beginning.
16 January 2014
The app is good for highlighting, underlining and stylus writing, but It does not have an option for typing side notes.
15 January 2014
This app started off working good. It will not save the information I write down on my document. The lines will also move to the far right or far left when it does decide to save my notes. I hope they will fix this problem.
3 January 2014
Please fix it, useless!
28 December 2013
I bought the app and all it does is give instructions to use, but will not actually launch for use. ???

Does not recalibrate resolution when you zoom in like Adobe Reader, so ClearType font isn't responsive. But Adobe Reader doesn't let you draw. Go figure.
5 November 2013
When using pdf touch and highlighting or adding notes to the document, then saving the doc the notes show up in a different place on the page when you reopen the document (rendering them useless)

One of the main reasons I bought a surface was for PDF pen input annotation of PDF contracts. Having a hard time finding a good one and this one certainly isn't it. Highlighter works with some PDF docs but not others. Annotations have to be turned on and off between scrolling... and more.

Does not support Surface eraser. Have to open a menu to write notes. I use this app to take notes in school and this app is too slow. I should be able to draw right on the PDF and use the eraser. Worthless as it is.

There are many problems and bugs to this app, I am not sure if I will be able to list them all! first of all, when you are drawing or annotating on the pdf document, the writing shouldn't be so square like, should be able to annotate and then zoom, and switch pages by swiping with two fingers, needs more colors, and the highlighter should be able to highlight more than text. should be able to type, and everything on this app is just weird. Would be perfect with a lot of fixes/improvements thanx
