GoodReader for iPad adds PDF annotation support

Good.iWare has released a major update to GoodReader for iPad, its popular iPad document reader and file management app, adding full PDF annotation support and several other enhancements. GoodReader for iPad allows users to download and view and store various file formats including PDF, text, Microsoft Office, iWork and audio and video and includes advanced features for working with PDf files. Version 3.0 adds full PDF annotation support, including notes, highlights, markups and drawings in PDF documents. Annotations created and edited in GoodReader are saved into the PDF file so they can be accessed on other platforms such as a desktop computer, and PDF annotations created and properly stored by other applications can be viewed and edited in GoodReader. Users can create and edit comments and tag them with different icons, highlight text in a PDF document and add freehand drawings, lines, arrows, strikeouts, text insertion/replacement marks, and more. GoodReader also allows support for viewing, limited editing and removing several other types of annotations such as text boxes, rubber stamps, and file attachments. Files can also now be extracted from PDF file attachments and viewed or saved within GoodReader. Other new features in GoodReader for iPad 3.0 include the ability to select text directly on a page and hide PDF watermarks as well as stability improvements when loading certain types of PDF files. Users can also now choose a minimum zoom ratio for PDF pages, extract files of any size from a PDF portfolio and duplicate files for creating annotations without modifying the original. GoodReader for iPad is available from the App Store for an introductory price of $1.

With the addition of annotations, my iPad has taken over 65% of my job duties from my laptop.

Hi there,

I am creating an ipad application to annotate pdf and pptx documents.
Can you please give a sample code of iOS to perform annotations.
Or can you explain a approach to create such app.
