PDF annotation gives the possibility to add notes and comments, which is not possible in general to a password-protected document. As it is not possible for any web browser to add such a plugin that will provide an online opportunity, there is a need to install a third-party application that not only helps in editing a PDF but also provides the tools that are necessary to complete the action smoothly. With the support of an iPad PDF annotation app, it is possible for you to add comments to a document and share it with the work group or the readers.
