Any recommendations for a good PDF markup app - really want to put this pen to use. Specifically I need Onedrive for Business support as all my PDFs are in the cloud.
Closest I have come is Xodo but they have a bug in that it won't work in onedrive for business when using 2 factor authentication.

The native onedrive app is ok but I find it quite cludgy to use.

I use Adobe Fill and Sign; been using it for a few years now. I can fill out pdf forms, sign and save them; then send them via email.

Thx. I just tried it and looks like annotations are kept seperate to the source pdf? The cloud support worked although I had to pay to try.

I've been marking up PDFs for years. I've used everything. Use S Note. It syncs to Evernote or your Samsung cloud. If you want an almost equally good app, which syncs to dropbox or box, use squid.

They don't actually mark up PDF files. They import the file as an image and you can write on it more naturally. Then when you export it, it will render as a true PDF again.

S note has better pen shortcuts, more editing features, but squid is super nice too if you buy the features.

I confess to zero experience but when I bought my Note spent an afternoon looking for an app as a just in case. Led me to XODO PDF Reader.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xodo.pdf.reader

Xodo - read, annotate, sign, and share PDFs and fill in PDF forms, plus sync with Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. more....

The OP tried that (see first post). I decided to download it based on your post. It's not that great. The only writing option is one brush and you have to make it thin each time to write with the spen. I make lots on notes on my PDF and like options in points and writing styles. There are more options in other ways, but for a Note user who expects more withh writing, this one option isn't my choice. I'm back to Write on PDF.

I confess to thinking I read thread but obviously didnt. Or that XOXO was inferior tool. Thanks.

On not sure I would say write on is better than xodo. The different pens are nice but the overall toolset is a fraction of xodos offering and there is no cloud drive support.

I have come to the same conclusion as what has been posted here. Try finding something that will write on an excel file and sync with OneDrive. 4 times a month I get my timesheet, an excel file that I have to fill in and sign and submit if I want to keep buying cases for my Note 9. I can edit it just fine on the Note but then have to export it as a PDF and then use write on PDF to sign it and then go look for it because I can's send it to OneDrive.

Curious and suggesting you do so, but do you have, or have access to one of Microsoft's Surface devices, and tried this with one?

I'd be surprised if it cant but then I have walked away and sold a Surface 2 and recently Surface Pro.
