    In an effort to move away from printing hundreds and hundres of journal articles, I've decided to make the move to digital annotating and note-taking on all my pdfs.

    I currently keep all my pdfs in DropBox and use Skim to annotate my pdfs, but when I try and view those pdfs on my iPad or another computer, the annotations don't carry over. I'd have to export every file as a pdf with embedded notes. The problem is that embedded notes are not editable.

    I want to be able to open a pdf from DropBox on any of my Apple devices and add or edit annotations.

    Is there some software that allows me to annotate on my Mac or iPad and have those annotations sync across all my devices, while keeping the annotations editable? Something like SimpleNote, but for pdfs?

    Cheers :)

    I'm looking for exactly the same thing. Dropbox won't even open some of my larger files, so I've been using Goodreader. It works great, but just wish my last page read could sync back to my Mac. Does such a thing exist?
