    Any apps that let the user annotate files like .doc, .xls, .jpg, .html, .webarchives, ... ?

    I tend to convert such documents to PDF and then annotate the new PDF.

    I convert the files to PDF and then annotate them. There are a lot of options available for marking up PDFs, but not so many for other file formats (as far as I know).

    For example, GoodReader lets me capture a webpage. But can I annotate it while reading it?

    ----------

    But can I convert everything easily to PDF? Is the conversion (from .doc, .jpg, ...) an in-app function (in the usual PDF annotation apps)?

    Save2PDF and other apps can convert pretty much any file type to PDF. Don't forget that most versions of Microsoft Office can save files to PDF. I use Save2PDF and other than the fact that it doesn't always page break in the same place as the original Office file, mostly an issue with PPT files, I find it very useful.

    I've purchased Note Taker HD, not only for annotation. It works well. A lot of potential.

    Works fine with a Target stylus, 15 cad.
