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.
