What is the best iPad PDF annotating tool with Google Drive support?
After scouring the internet for a solution, I have finally found one that seems very good (and free!). Foxit PDF is a clean, user-friendly PDF reader and annotator. Using its “cloud” feature, you can connect to Google Drive by logging in within Foxit. Then you can choose which folders to sync between Google Drive and Foxit. The amazing part is that any annotations you make to the PDFs are automatically synced with Google Drive and appear when you open the PDF through Drive in your web browser on any computer!

What tablet would you recommend for an undergrad Mechanical Engineer student?
I currently use a Surface RT (bought for $350). I enjoy it because I have full office capabilities. I do understand this is not really in your price range.A Samsung tablet is the best for drawing on PDFs. This might be in your price range, depending on current sales.One of my classmates uses his Samsung Galaxy Note Phone for taking notes during lectures, since you are able to use the pen to take notes.Now, in a alternate universe where a college student has all the money in the world, I would suggest a Surface Pro 4 with an i7 processor, 16GB ram and 259GB hard drive. This tablet would set you back $1800, but it can run CAD, so you are able to design from your tablet, which could pay off. It also has a pen that can be used to easily draw on PDFs in One Note, or highlight in the Reader app. Also, if you have a Windows laptop, the two would sync files through OneDrive, so you are able to work on it on one machine. and switch to the other one.
Why does Xcode uses PDF for vector assets instead svg?
The underlying view system used for iOS and macOS (OS X) is called Quartz (Quartz 2D and Quartz Extreme). That system uses the PDF format under the hood for drawing. Therefore, PDF files have always been first class citizens, especially when it comes to storing vector images for screen rendering.A decision was made by Apple when transforming the NeXT OS into what is now macOS, not to use Adobe’s Display Postscript (DPS) for the graphics system. NeXT and Adobe has collaborated on DPS, but for their new OS, Apple decided to bring the development of the graphics system in-house and base it on PDF (an open standard). There were several technical advantages as well as avoiding the high royalty cost paid to Adobe for DPS.See Display PostScript - WikipediaSide note: you may remember that when OS X first came out, it included a number of PDF tools built in. You could print to PDF files and use the built-in Preview.app to display them. On other OS’s at that time, those operations required 3rd party tools. Since the rendering system was already using PDF under the hood, presumably these features were easier / trivial to implement.The SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format was developed for the web, and has advantages for that application. It is more commonly used for UI elements in web apps in a similar way that PDF can be used in Quartz. But due to the history of PDF in OS X (macOS), is not as well supported in the Cocoa API’s.
