We continue to come across so many different uses for iAnnotate PDF. If I were to imagine iAnnotate as a person, our app would be a globe-trotting adventurer who has mastered just about every field. Take a look at few of these escapades:
iAnnotate on Archaeological Digs
“Ever see a crew chief or field director carry around a 2 in three-ring binder full of reference materials? Mine is about 1 cm thick, weighs 1.3 pounds, and is shiny. Beat that.”
iAnnotate Practicing Rural Medicine in Australia
“In fact you can quickly and easily search through all your documents for key words within, or for tags you’ve added (this has come in handy on more than a few occasions when a consultant has asked me a tricky question, but I can search for the topic and pull up part of one of the many textbooks I have sitting in my library).”
iAnnotate Grading Term Papers in Philadelphia
“As a result, I was able to write onscreen comments, usually in red, as well as add typed longer comments, and to return the papers immediately. This was satisfying to both students and to instructor.”
iAnnotate Handing Down the Law in Florida
“In case you were wondering, the judges use iAnnotate to annotate documents. The iPads were provided by the Court. And they all have them!”

We were thrilled to see Apple’s business case study on Fennemore Craig, Arizona’s oldest law firm and a recent iPad convert. Fennemore Craig highlights their appreciation of iAnnotate PDF, and they echo the compliments we’ve heard from other users in law. They’ve eliminated boxes of paper exhibits and reduced overhead. They discovered instant back-up and archiving of documents. They’ve increased their coolness by strolling into mediation sessions with just an iPad under their arm.

Geri L. Dreiling has written a terrific article about iAnnotate over on Lawyer Tech Review. She’s created a helpful tutorial on downloading cases to iAnnotate, marking them up, and then uploading the annotated case to her online storage for later review.
We’ve dubbed iAnnotate the paper eliminator, but this article points out that it eliminates highlighters too. I hadn’t considered that before, but I now estimate that iAnnotate has saved over 10,000 hectares of highlighters from harvest and subsequent shipping. That’s how highlighters are made, right? They’re plucked from the ground like stalks of asparagus?
Thanks for your detailed tutorial, Ms. Dreiling.
If iAnnotate has changed your workflow, shoot me an email and tell me how.

We came across this post today on twitter: “How my iPad and iAnnotate make for Friendlier Skies.” Attorney Stewart R. Albertson describes the struggle of carrying 1,200 pages of trial transcript with him on a flight. This feat used to involve hefty binders, a bloated carry-on, and encroaching on his neighbor’s elbow-room. A problem no more. He now touts the ease in which he views and mark-up hundreds of trial transcript pages using his iPad (in airplane mode, certainly) and iAnnotate. Thanks for the kind words, Mr. Albertson.
This post follows two other mentions of iAnnotate in the past month. In this LawyerTechReview article, attorney Hunter Reece describes how iAnnotate simplifies his document reviews by reducing time and paper and increasing the opportunity to take advantage of downtime. This law.com post promotes iAnnotate for its document management, annotation, and form capabilities. The author also suggests that keeping documents open on the iPad while working away on a computer is a novel and portable way to optimize workflow.
