How to build your own Matching ipad app by creative use of pdf notes?

Pdf Notes – If you want to write on Pdf files in iPad, this is the app for you.  It is free (w/ads) but well worth it.  We found several uses for the kids.  The most important use for the kids is to use the iPad to complete worksheets as if they are doing it on paper. There is no restrictions on what they can do. For math they can do their work on the screen itself and answer the questions. For others you can take the worksheets and mark them.  When you are doing online reading, you can highlight the words you need to remember and use it.

For little kids and kids with special needs, they can use this to match, mark and other typical worksheet tasks that they do. They can do it in this app itself.  You can create PDFs either by scanning or you can make them using word or other. We usually print pretty much as pdf so it was very easy for us to use this in iPad.

Wishlist: If there is a way all the notes can be erased at once and bring back the document to the original state will be really useful for the kids as they can practice and whence done, put it back doc in the same state, so they can try again. – UPDATE:Developer Added this feature. Thank you pdf-notes.

    Awesome APP!
    I used it for the NO paper/pencil….students loved it! It took a total of 5 minutes to set up, that included going to copier, scanning pages, back to classroom and opening on iPad. I actually printed my smartboard presention and scanned that because I had a student who had trouble “keeping himself together” while working at the board. He completed the activity with the class, just from his seat. SOOO, many uses. Worth the download!!!
