"This app is a must have” — David Wiltson

Annotate is the simplest way to capture, annotate and save or share photos and screenshots.


Snap a photo or select an image from your camera roll, then dress it up with stickers and annotate it with arrows, text, and the pen tool. Or use the pixelate tool and built-in emojis for maximum impact.

Add a caption and share it with friends on your favorite apps, including Apple Messages, Mail, Twitter, Slack, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Line, Instagram and Facebook.

Quickly and easily redact parts of an image.

Have fun with the 100's of emoticons built-in and ready for you to add to your photos and screenshots. Full support for landscape mode on iPad and iPhone, so rotate away!

Very useful

Have been using this to make notes on photos. It's done everything I asked it to and is straightforward to use. When it asks me to crop, I just tap crop and go through to the next screen without any crop having taken place - if I don't want to crop. Squares and circles would be nice in a future update 😊

Broken and useless now

Welcome to the giddy world of apps not updating with iOS.
Using iOS 13.6 on iPhone6S, it’s still possible to use the primitive annotation tools, but impossible to save the annotated image. There are two options:
Export (pop-up which doesn’t fully pop-up; then freezes nothing is now possible except pressing the Home Button and reloading Annotate, ad infinitum)
Back (option pop-up: Discard or Cancel) which freezes and doesn’t respond to touching either option.
This App was always extremely basic.
It is now just a memory squatter.
Actually should get no stars, since it actually is non-functional, unless you count pressing HOME+POWER to obtain a screenshot of the annotated image cropped to iPhone screen size and res, with the Annotate Toolbar obscuring part of the annotated image. Apple should remove this App from their store if the Developers have no intention of keeping up with phone and iOS increments.
