    Portable Document Format (PDF) is one of the most popular file formats in use today. If you have an iPad, you definitely need software that will let you read all of those PDF files you come across on the Web. You might also want apps that let you convert PDFs into other file formats, oradd your comments todocs sent to you by co-workers. In this roundup, we'll take an updated, hands-on look at PDF apps for the iPad, honing in on nine of them.

    To think that commenting, annotation, and note taking as "additions" to PDF reading software just goes to show how much these developers miss the mark. None of these apps are any good for Active Reading and it is really very frustrating and disappointing. The capability to make truly functional software has been around for quite some time now and not one of these developers is doing it.

    This relatively ancient whitepaper from Xerox clearly identifies many of the requirements for an Active Reading solution. We have tablets and pens that are capable, and now we are just waiting for app developers to wake up and actually produce something innovative:

    PDF software should have Active Reading as the core functionality.
