    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.
