PDF annotation app that saves straight to Dropbox?

Hi,

I use dropbox quite extensively and I'm looking for an app that does this:
1. I would download a PDF on to my dropbox folder on my Mac
2. I want to open the PDF on my ipad and annotate as I read it. However, I don't want to open the PDF and save it within the app only to send it to dropbox - creates duplicates, I want to be able to overwrite the original file straight from the app itself
3. When I go back to my Mac, and I open the PDF, I want to see the annotated PDF, not the original.

Any ideas?? There are a TONNE of annotating tools on the App Store with high reviews, however they're like $5-$10 and I don't want to have to try out 5 to find the one! Lol

EDIT: as an added bonus, anything similar for word and excel documents??
Thanks in advance guys

PDF Expert supports auto synchronization with Dropbox folders and it can view and edit annotations created in Apple Preview or Adobe Acrobat software and vice verse.

I swear by GoodReader for this functionality. However I always create a separate annotated copy, so I'm not sure if the duplicate issue would exist.

I'll give it a shot when I get home tonight and post an update.
