Many different file types including .doc, .pdf, .rtf, .jpg, .png, .ppt, .cvs, .xls and more are supported. In the app you can use your finger or a stylus to write comments directly onto the document in either black, gray, red, blue or orange. When you are finished grading the paper simply hit send to email it back to the student. You can also open documents on your iPad using the “Open in app” feature found in apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

This app was funded through Kickstarter and was recently released. They are working on collecting feedback from educators on other features to add to the app. Give it a try and send them your feedback!
