Evernote Use #21- Saving and Annotating PDFs (mobile devices)

When I’m using my iPad or iPhone and find a PDF online, opening it in Evernote allows me to save and/or annotate the document. For example, when I attended the TICAL Conference today, I saved the conference program and used Evernote to help me navigate and mark which sessions I wanted to attend. Here’s how I did it:

Open In


The PDF will be saved to an Evernote note and you can use Evernote’s annotation tools to markup the document. For the TICAL program, I marked the concurrent sessions I wanted to attend and was able to reference them quickly.

Mark up

If I wanted to read more about the session, I would tap on any of the annotations to jump to the location in the PDF.

This system will work great for annotating any online PDF using your iPad, but it especially works great for conferences. The next time you attend a conference, download the program and give this a shot. More than likely you’ll use Evernote to take notes during the sessions anyway, so why not use Evernote to navigate the schedule?
