    I do, and to me this was a deal breaker, because I used it mainly to annotate my lecture slides while I taught. Having to save and reopen the document many times during a 2-hour lecture made this program unusable to me. Switched back to Easy PDF Reader on Android.

    The other big drawback of Drawboard is that ink-annotated PDF's bloat up in size more than just about any other PDF annotating program out there.

    Are you guys using pressure sensitive ink? If you don't need it, files are going to be smaller with it turned off.

    Can anybody recommend a Drawboard like App in Android. If I go with a Note 5, I would like to keep time on it like I did with my AVN8. Any decent PDF annotators in Android?

    Adobe has upgraded Reader and it is now called only Acrobat with a slick UI and excellent ink response. I was positively surprised, but my annotation needs differ from yours.

    I still use EZPDF when I have to use my Note 4, but the UI is from the 2008 era. I've tried Replica, and will now look to Acrobat- Thanks Kumabjorn!

    Actually, it sounds like this should be okay. Thanks.

    You're welcome, but I just realised that you won't be able to get it in the Windows Store. ;)

    EzPDF is excellent. UI is not great but it is just fine. Inking is smooth, and annotated files are lightweight. It's my program of choice by far on my Note Pro 12.2.

    Battery life is impressive. Battery is at 67% after a full day of normal use. Thanks for the recommendations on the software.

    Hi all,

    Is anyone still using Bluebeam's PDF Revu? Well, my real question really is: Is anyone using v. 11 or 12 of PDF Revu? If yes, have you tried turning on the "use touch only to zoom and pan" option and how well does it work?

    Thanks!
