Notability

notability   Notability is a really cool app that allows you to annotate PDFs.  Teachers upload or email their PDF worksheets to students, and once received, students can open and annotate the PDF documents.  Notability allows students to fill in the PDF document just as they would normally do using pencil and paper.  So the question is: “why would you bother”?  Well, the bonus is as teachers we no longer need to spend hours in front of the photocopier and students can no longer use the excuse that they never received the worksheet or they have lost the worksheet etc.  So it is a win for everyone.

As well as using the app for PDF annotation, you can use the app to create notes, either handwritten or by using the ipad keyboard.  You are also able to link audio recordings to your notes, insert photos, web images, drawings, etc and search for existing notes.  So it is pretty much like using a workbook just with a lot more options.

At 0.99 cents, it is well worth its value.
