    First of all, sorry for my english, that for some reason is getting worse by the day - Hope you understand the subject of this thread ^^

    I've been mainly using my PB for gaming and media but now that school has started i will be scratching Play out of Playbook and use it for what its meant to use(for some): Work/Study.

    First week and flown and i already have a bunch of ppts and some articles to read on pdf.

    My question is:

    Is there any app that allows me to highlight and/or bookmark lines/sentences/boards on a pdf, a ppt or a word file?

    I have the native pdf reader and qPdf sideloaded.

    Any help? Even if its paid(it's about time for me to buy something productive instead of games ^^)

    I've been looking for a pdf app for a while now and first I tried qPDF which is really good.

    The most comfortable app however I know, with a good price ratio is:

    pdf Reader

    It's totally worth the money.

    You can bookmark pages, it saves where u quit the pdf. It works pretty good with all kinds of pdf's(like 95 %) and loads pages very fast.

    A little tricky now is, that you can copy and past and select the text and open urls and stuff, so u will hav a little problem by tapping and scrolling, because it tries to select evrything.

    An Annotation is planned, but not there now. Updates come very quickly, like evry 2-3 weeks and they made huge improvement.

    If u wanna read a book, I would recomend qpdf, because switching pages is pretty handsome.

    If u wanna work and learn I would recommend pdf reader.
    U usually slide through pages.

    Hope that is helpful.

    Pedro, there is an android app called RepliGo Reader that highlights and I converted to a .bar and it works on my PB. Screen capture enclosed. The features of the program are listed here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nce.reader.app

    Goodereader.com has the bar file...I have been using 4.0 version of repligo...it has great features, but it seems buggy at times, e.g when you swipe into another program and swipe back onto repligo, it seems to have gone into sleep, so you have swipe down the menu to wake it up. But it has tons of features..it can even read the text aloud..
    I am not sure if the bugs are on androids or just playbook but there have been minor upgrades after 4.0, I haven't had the time to try the latest versions yet...but it will work well for you...
    infact instead of goodereader just search repligo 4.0 for playbook...
    Good Luck..

    The version that I got was 4.0.2. it is a paid version, so far no glitches though. I just looked all through Goodereader and couldn't find it anywhere on the site.
