One thought on “PDFpen for iPad Update and Review

  1. I’ve just purchased PDFpen for iPad. I love it. Only one BIG thing is missing: After adding some mark up to my PDF, it’s not possible to display a list of all mark up so I can jump to one quickly. I can’t believe that this feature is not include since most of other App includes this feature.
