    Hey Guys,
    Im looking for an application that allows to open and annotate PDF documents BUT also allows to set up workflows. For example if someone uploads a PDF, person A should be notified, then when A annotates the document, person B should be notified and when B gives and ok, person C should be notified.

    I know of some great annotate tools like PDF Expert that syncs with various source systems etc, but I havent come across any apps that integrate a basic workflow management system in it, through which notifications can be received by the concerend people as soon as someone edits the document

    Any ideas?

    I guess iAnnotate falls into this category too.

    That app has a comprehensive manual available at the Developer's website, so you could check out its capabilities risk-free.

    I don't think you need a specific PDF app so much as an online sharing site with automatic update notifications that supports one of the standard formats common in most PDF apps (like WebDAV). Unfortunately, I don't know of one.

    DropBox won't do it, though if you had a hotshot script writer you could probably create a workaround.

    Or maybe a project website that does notification emails and allows documents to be emailed to it.

    Yeah, yeah, I'm mumbling maybes.

    Hope you find what you need.
