"If you read a lot of PDF articles, whether as eBooks or research articles, then this app is essential." - www.gizmodo.co.uk

TagNotate is a PDF document viewer and annotator with the unique ability to assign tags to annotations - you can create as many different tags as you want, allowing you to associate with each annotation whatever kinds of information are important for you. By selecting one or more tags, you can collect together all the annotations that share those tags (across a single document or across multiple documents), and you can even use tags to select which files are shown in the file browser, or to select the annotations that you want to export to other apps or to email.

Like other PDF viewers, you can download and read your PDF documents, organize them into folders, and annotate them with highlights, underlines, notes, and even drawings. But unlike other PDF viewers, you can tag each of these different kinds of annotation.

Need to keep track of which documents mention different kinds of things? Highlight the relevant bits in each document, tag those highlights, and see the tags listed in your tag cloud; you can then tap on an individual tag, or on more than one tag, to retrieve those highlights from each source document. By highlighting and tagging information that matters to you, you can easily go back to this information later by selecting the appropriate tags.

The more you tag the highlights, notes, and other annotations in your documents, the more information is instantly available, personalized for you. Selecting one or more tags initiates a near-instantaneous cross-document search that lets you collate important information. Single or multi-document overviews, based on the tags you have selected, let you easily extract what you need and copy it to the clipboard or an email for sharing with others. Integrates with Dropbox and iCloud. See case studies at www.tagnotate.com.

Please send bug reports either to bugs@tagnotate.com or directly through the app (select the 'i' button and then 'feedback'). We respond to all emails. And if you like TagNotate, please don't keep it to yourself, but consider reviewing it on the App Store for others to see. Thank you!

Stage Managers look here!

This will sound super weird to people outside of the Theatre community, but this is an excellent app for taking line notes. It gives you the ability to swiftly take specific notes without using bunches of paper and send out these notes separately and confidentially. Takes a second to set up, but totally worth it. Check out the desktop version too!

I used to be 'that guy', hauling around a pile of papers because I couldn't see how my iPad could match the experience of making notes by hand (sorry trees).

But, it's time to consume my hat and make sure that radars can detect pigs. I just finished reading and making notes with this app, and it's awesome! You can type notes anywhere you like, highlight, and even draw with a pencil-type tool, which is my own favorite approach for circling crazy ideas and making exclamations.

TagNotate - you have a fan here. Oh, and my bag-shoulder and the trees thank you too!!

Finally, I can find my notes on my PDFs!

This is an incredibly useful app. I've been so frustrated that until now there's been no way to search and compile my notes across PDFs. Developer is super-responsive and has already told me that a desktop version is planned :)
