Publisher's description - TakeNotes 1.0.4
Introducing TakeNotes (formerly PadNotes) - the iPad application that allows you to write, draw, hi-light, or text on any document using an image or PDF file as the background. You can use it for drawing, coloring pictures, taking notes in class, filling out forms, and as a textbook reader that you can hi-light and annotate with. You can share your completed documents and forms via email or over the network as images or PDF files. Please see the demo video at our website www.padnotesapp.com.

I am a teacher trying to move toward paperless grading, but my students must still write by hand because that is how the state tests them. I decided to try scanning in their essays and scoring them electronically on my iPad. I`ve tried a couple other programs, but this one had the features I was looking for. I can click in the margins of a PDF file (created by scanning my students essays to PDF on our school`s photocopier) and I can use the stylus function to circle, highlight, or edit text. I also like the option to delete pages since my scanner reads blank notebook paper as a page with content. This is a wonderful program, and it has significantly reduced the size and weight of the pile of papers I carry around.
I thought this app would be great, especially for $4. But it was very difficult to use, not intuitive at all and the layout is horrible. I liked the idea of saving the edits into a separate file but this program didn`t do a very good job, it is very slow and takes forever to load things. The zoom feature doesn`t work appropriately and is very difficult to use and draw at the same time. Don`t waste your money.
FINALLY! Just what I was looking for!
If only I had found this earlier! I would have saved myself a ton of time and money. This does EVERYTHING I need it to do. I can highlight both native PDF files and scanned images that were saved as pdfs. (those pesky articles that I have to read for school!) I can write notes for class or type them. I can draw symbols to go with the notes as well. I can even change the color of the text to match the color of the highlighter I used. It is perfect for my needs. I am thrilled with it.
There is just one tiny issue with the inserting additional pdfs, as I would like to group them in one document. I seem to have trouble adding more then single page documents. Its a little thing though, since the rest works so much better then the other ones I have tried!!
