LiquidText: Powerful PDF Annotation

PDFs are one of the most used file types, and they often come with limitations. They are difficult to annotate, to change and to highlight, and generally to work on. However, LiquidText solves those problems.

LiquidText is an iOS app that allows you to annotate and work on a PDF alongside a 'workspace', a dedicated area where you can drag in excerpts, comment on them, and much more. You can also comment directly on the PDF itself, highlight it, link between pages and many more features.

If you find yourself working with PDFs a lot, LiquidText may be the app for you.

Using Todoist Labels

If you have a lot of items on your todo list, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of things you need to do. However, if you use Todoist, you may find a premium feature handy - labels. Labels allow you to assign tasks a specific label, and you can assign tasks with as many as these labels as you want. Labels allow you to see only the tasks that you want to see, and filter out the tasks you don't.
