GoodReader for the iPad now has PDF Annotations.

There are plenty of decent PDF readers available for the iPad and I have mentioned by favorite, GoodReader, on several occasions. GoodReader just got a whole lot better. Today's release of GoodReader version 3.0 introduced a long awaited feature: PDF annotations, including notes, highlights, markups, and drawings. 

Here is a list of some of the new features that come with version 3.0:

PDF Annotations, including notes,highlightsmarkups and drawings:

  • all annotations that you create or edit in GoodReader - notes, highlights, markups, and drawings - are saved in a PDF file, so you will be able to see them later on a computer or in another copy of GoodReader on your colleague's device
  • all notes, highlights, markups, and drawings created outside GoodReader, and properly stored in a PDF file, can be viewed or edited in GoodReader
  • types of annotations that you can create and edit in GoodReader: comments ("sticky notes") with 7 different icons, text highlights, freehand drawings, lines, arrows, rectangles, ovals, text underlines, text deletion marks (strikeouts), text insertion marks, text replacement marks. You can freely adjust color of all of the above.
  • other types of annotations that you can view in GoodReader: text boxes with callouts, polygons and polylines, "squiggly" underlines, "cloudy" shapes, rubber stamps, file attachments. All annotations that can be viewed, can also bedeleted. In addition, some of them can be edited in a limited fashion (color, placement, scale).
  • you can now extract files from PDF file attachments
