    Some price hikes going on. Note anytime became $8 from its original $2, and Drawboard became $15 from its most recent $8.

    Edit: Drawboard is back to $9.99.

    Actually, I could Live with this 14,99 price. But it's not fair to push it up from 4,99, that's a 300% increase! They should have done it way more incrementally

    I heard it's going to come down to $9.99 again soon, the $14.99 was part of a price testing phase.

    $14.99 is way too high for Drawboard. It's a decent program for limited uses, but I find that I go to Acrobat 11 Pro whenever I need to do anything significant. The Bay Trail Atom is surprisingly adroit in 11 Pro, but could use some more RAM at times. We need a 64 bit 4GB RAM 8" Wacom Tablet (and it would be nice if it didn't self destruct:rolleyes:).

    What would be the fun in that? No suspense!

    How much does Acrobat 11 Pro cost? I only occasionally annotate pdf's directly (I insert into onenote first), but I usually use PDF Annotator (my university has a volume license, so it is free).

    Apparently the developers agreed, because it's back to $9.99.

    In case anyone has feature suggestions for Drawboard, they now have a UserVoice page.

    Acrobat Pro is one of our most expensive licenses. A discounted personal license is over $200. But, for document work, there is nothing else in its class IMO. I have Acrobat Pro, PDF Annotator v3.x and now Drawboard. Drawboard is the most convenient and the only one that is touch friendly. Acrobat does everything annotator can do and a lot more so I tend to never use PDF anymore. Acrobat would not run smoothly on my Slate 500 nor Fiji Q552 so I relied on PDF Annotator. I'm sure it's perfect for Academic use.
