I am a university student and I've tried several different apps for my lecture notes and course materials, as well as personal organisation and journalling. I've kept coming back to Evernote, because it's by far the best all-rounder, but compared to some other apps, the ability to handwrite on PDFs using the iPad is really poor. The drawing tool seems to overcorrect handwriting, has no palm recognition, doesn't have a proper eraser, and seems to be designed more for drawing simple shapes. The text tool is okay, but the "shadowed" effect on the font is hideous. I'm keeping my premium account for now, but I'd really appreciate being able to handwrite on PDFs more easily on my iPad. Anyone else?
I recently downloaded EN for the purposes of organizing a large academic research project and am evaluating whether to adopt it as my main strategy for organizing source materials. Question: I have some lengthy pdf files. I plan to annotate these (specifically, by tagging with keywords and/or making comments in the margins), but need my annotations to be searchable. Can I do this? Would this be done through Skitch? Again, it's not enough to tag the pdf as a whole; I need to be able to search annotations sprinkled throughout the pdf. Finally, not sure if this is relevant: I'm not currently a Premium member but am definitely willing to become one if I go with EN. I imagine this is a very basic question, but I can't seem to find an answer! Thank you.
