"I’ve finally found the best all-in-one image annotation tool for iOS – Annotable for iPhone and iPad." —— Federico Viticci of MacStories
Features (many are free, some are unlocked with purchases):
◉ All the expected common tools: rectangles, ovals, arrows, lines and texts.
◉ Fully customizable: colors, sizes, outlines, fonts…
◉ Stylishly obscure private information with Blur and Pixelation.
◉ Or on the contrary, highlight something with Spotlights.
◉ If you really want to focus on a particular spot use a Loupe.
◉ You can even highlight text on screenshots of apps like Notes, Twitter, and Safari. It feels like magic, and can really save the day when you want to share a web page screenshot with some words highlighted but forgot to select the words when you took the screenshot.
◉ Fully support Action Extension, Photo Editing Extension, Edits Sync via iCloud Photo Library, URL Schemes, 3D Touch, Wide Color…Annotable utilizes your powerful iOS system to the extreme.
Distinctions from many other similar Apps:
◆ All the results are high-resolution images.
◆ Not only screenshots but all images are supported.
◆ Large images can be directly annotated and do not have to be cropped.
Bug fix: sharing to Dropbox no longer crashes.
Ratings and Reviews
Why didn’t I start using this long ago?
I downloaded this a long time ago, but never got around to really trying it out - and now I see the error of my ways - Annotable is *awesome*! It combines the best features of Apple’s Markup tool and Skitch (especially the outlined text, which can hugely improve readability on varied backgrounds), and gives you lots of additional tools (the one that recognizes text in images and nearly highlights it is kind of magical), and lots of knobs to tweak to fine tune edits. This is the only image annotation tool I’ll ever need.
I’d like the ability to nudge items around a pixel at a time (with tony arrow keys), but the app already puts up a magnifier if you long press an item before moving it, which is almost as good.
😍 love at first pixel obscuration 🤓❤️
(UPDATED: I’ll say it again) THIS is THE app to use for your image annotation needs. It’s indispensable!!!! Worth paying for every option. I can’t tell you how nicely it’s made informative images stand out so that they do their duty! I’ve used Annotable for editing images such as bug report screenshots, highlighting maps and directions, even to annotate screenshots of friends text messages to prove a point to them! With a UI layout that is easy to remember, and functions that are VITAL, this is the cake right here!
Thank you Awesome Developer for taking the time to reply to my review. I hope See you on the TestFlight flipside 😉
UPDATE 2: STILL USING IT LIKE A BOSS ON iOS 12.1.4📲
Developer Response ,
I'm really glad you like Annotable. Yes, I'll consider making a macOS version. I just don't have enough time recently.
**UPDATED REVIEW: PERFECT!!
LOVE this app! I screencap things constantly, and it’s my main way of taking any kind of notes, and this app has the perfect feature set. The paid version is completely worth the spend, selection of tools for markup and redaction is awesome! **Updating review after great response and engagement from developer regarding the one issue I’d been having with the app crashing, now seems fixed after last update. Developer support and follow up now have me 100 percent loyal to Annotable!
