    this company told me to fill out application and she sent it to me via email. Which app do you recommend so I can fill out application from my iPad? I don’t use computers.

    What kind of file is the application? Does it provide active fields for you to insert information?

    If it’s a pdf document, you can annotate on it directly from within the mail app and send it back without the need for an extra app.

    It is possible the .pdf is just meant for printing and filling out manually, then scan to email back.

    I don’t have a printer and also even installed adobe fill & sign app but there’s nowhere that says to copy to that app I just installed. It doesn’t say mark and reply either. Please help

    I’m trying to replicate this too. In my mail app I see a markup sign, but I need to view the PDF first.

    - tap on the PDF that somebody sent in their message
    - tap the markup button in the top right corner, looks like a pencil tip
    - mark up doc as needed, then tap done and you’ll see options to send the annotated file back

    Hope this helps.

    Like I said, it could just be a plain .pdf file.

    Do you see a pen icon on the top right hand corner, next to the share icon? This will let you annotate on the pdf from within the message. After that, tap on done, and you will be asked if you want to reply to said email with the annotated pdf document as an attachment.

    There’s an app called “Adobe Fill & Sign”. As the name implies, it allows you to fill out and sign PDF documents.

    As ericwn noted when you’re in email and you tap on a PDF attachment the PDF should open up. At that point there should be a couple of icons on the upper right corner of the screen, one of which looks like a pen tip in a circle. Tapping that should put you into edit mode and after you’re done editing tapping Done on the top left corner should give you options on what to do with the edited PDF.

    If you tap and hold on the PDF, it’ll bring up the share sheet. From there pick “Markup and Reply” from the bottom row to go straight to markup.

    So, the file is not a .pdf at all, but is an .xls file?
    Is there a way to annotate on an .xls file? Wouldn't Dan50 need an excel viewer of some kind?

    An .xls file needs MS Excel. You can get it as part of an Office 365 package. Numbers CAN edit them also, just not well. If it is a job interview, I think I would just get access to a full blown computer somewhere with Excel.
