Branchfire Releases New iAnnotate for Android

The New, Free, Version Is the First in Several New Products Slated for iAnnotate in 2015

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2015) - Branchfire today announced that its wildly popular iAnnotate application has a completely redesigned UI and it is available for free and to Android users first. Branchfire's iAnnotate app currently has over 1.6 million consumer and business users worldwide. This new version allows users to read, mark up and share PDF documents on thousands of Android devices.

"2015 will be a big year for us," said Ravi Bhatt, founder of Branchfire. "In 2014, we invested heavily in reimagining iAnnotate. We wanted to allow customers to quickly record ideas, work with more types of content, and work across more platforms. The launch of iAnnotate for Android is a product of this investment and the first in a number of new product rollouts for this year." 

The new free version of iAnnotate for Android features include:

  • BEAUTY: A completely new user interface that will be consistent across all devices and operating systems.

  • MULTI TASKING: iAnnotate allows for many documents to be open at a time, easy navigation between documents for tabbed reading.
