I've been using Drawboard PDF for a few months now, and it's significantly improved how I manage and handle PDFs. The interface is really user-friendly, making annotations and document management a breeze. Love the real-time sync! Hope they do a Miro-style 'follow-me' type feature soon.

Honestly, Drawboard PDF is a game-changer for me when it comes to checking out those hefty architectural and engineering drawings. It handles those big files like a champ, and hey, the price? Totally affordable, especially compared to other stuff out there

Nice tool. The pen and signatures makes completing forms I get from school much quicker now I don't need to print them out and rescan them. The text highlighting looks like a real highlighter.
