Highlighter is a powerful PDF reader with advanced annotation tools and an intuitive, polished interface.

You can highlight important passages, add text notes, freehand sketches, and even voice memos. All your annotations are saved directly to the PDF file, so that you can review them later on a Mac or PC, using standard software like Acrobat Reader or Mac OS X Preview.

While working with a document, you can view all your annotations in the innovative clippings view that shows highlighted passages in the context of the original page layout.

For convenient navigation in large documents, Highlighter has great support for standard PDF features like links and outlines. The integrated browser provides quick access to linked web pages and the Wikipedia for looking up selected words.

Documents can be imported from iTunes or your Dropbox.
