Readdle’s Remarks, one of the best notetaking/annotation apps for the iPad, has been updated to v1.3 and received 2 new features:
- New realistic handwriting with variable stroke width
- Automatic sync with Dropbox, WebDAV, GoogleDocs
Handwriting now looks significantly better than before, and depending how quickly you write, the strokes will have ‘variable widths’. A simple upgrade to be sure but it does make your handwriting look remarkably more realistic. Since updating the app last night, I’ve found annotating freehand on PDF files even more enjoyable. The automatic sync feature is also a handy new addition, where any changes made to files within the Dropbox/Google Docs designated folder will automatically be saved and synced. Remarks 1.3 is a free update for those who already own the app, otherwise, $4.99 for new users.
