GoodReader, arguably the best and most popular PDF reader app for the iPhone and iPad, has just received the highly anticipated update that brings about a new and significant feature: Annotations. No longer are you able to just browse your PDF files with GoodReader, you can now highlight and markup text (underline, crossout, insert etc), create sticky notes and even scribble your own notes (along with lines, arrows and circles) right on the document.
This 3.0 update rocks. I’ve tested the latest version on both my iPhone and iPad and the annotation features work wonderfully. Being able to finally make notes and highlight the pdf file just like you would with a text book or magazine is absolutely indispensable. Best of all, both the iPhone and iPad versions of GoodReader currently costs only $0.99, which is a fraction of what you’d pay for similar apps that also support annotations. If you’re in need of a highly capable PDF reader, there’s really no better option on the App Store.
