    Hi to all,

    I am looking for an app that allows to highlight pdfs and then to export thoses annotations so that I can store them in Evernote.
    Right now, I use Goodreader but what irks me is that when one exports annotations, each and every one of them comes with:
    "-- Page XXX--
    Highlight (yellow) date and hour"

    This is slightly annoying (I wouldn't mind the Page XXX, but the rest of the text I really don't care).

    Do you know of an app that allows for "clean" exports of highlighted text?

    I'd really like that, too, but haven't found an app that can do that yet - I've tried GoodReader, iAnnotate and PDF Expert.

    Argh, that's a pity!

    I have just found out that this can be done with Kindle annotations! Thus, it should be doable with annotations in ipad app as well!
    In the end, a python script would probably do the trick, but I am not yet proficient enough to do it :)
