Top 6 Android Annotation Apps

Image annotation can be very useful in certain situations. For example, you might want to show how to use a certain feature or if you want to highlight something or point to a certain section of the image. In those situations, annotation tools can help you quickly highlight or draw attention to the parts of the image you need. These are some of the best annotation apps for Android that you can try for free.

Best Android Annotation Apps

Screen Master is one of the most popular screen capture and annotation tools for Android. The best thing about the app is that it places a small, transparent icon that can be used to take a quick screenshot. Once you take the screenshot, you can start editing it by simply tapping the “Edit” option. If you already have photos or images you want to annotate, you can do so by tapping the “Take Photo” option on the main screen and then selecting the image you want to edit. With the annotation tool, you can cut, crop, rotate, blur selected parts of images, add shapes like arrows, circles, rectangles, text and images, write with the included pen, add emojis, and more.

If you are looking for a simple yet powerful screen capture and annotation app, give Screen Master a try. However, keep in mind that you will see banner ads while you annotate the images. But they don’t get in your way, so it shouldn’t be a big deal. If you use this app regularly, consider updating to remove the ads.

Price: The application is completely free but contains ads. To remove the ads, you need to upgrade to the pro version for $ 2.99 via in-app purchase.

Phonto will only do one thing, but it does it pretty well. Instead of adding a ton of shapes, if you are looking for a dedicated app to add text to your images with different styles and effects, Phonto is for you. Just download the app, open the image you want to add text to, and start typing. With Phonto, you can choose from 200 different fonts and style the text with different colors, gradients, patterns, shadows, strokes, text size, background color, etc. You can even set custom text and line spacing and rotate and skew added text.

If you want, you can even add your own custom fonts and use them within the app to annotate your images. To add your own custom font, all you have to do is download the font file in .zip, .ttp or .otf format and then open it with the application. In case you were wondering, you can download some of the best fonts for free directly from the Google Fonts website.

Price: The app is completely free, but it contains ads. You can remove the ads with a $ 1.5 in-app purchase.

Snap Markup is a relatively new application that allows you to make basic annotations on the selected image. With Snap Markup you can draw shapes like arrows, rectangles, stars, circles, lines, and even custom shapes with the pencil tool. You can also add custom colors and change the thickness of the shapes as needed. Like I said, it is a very basic app and apart from drawing shapes there is not much you can do. On a daily basis, if you only use a couple of drawing tools like rectangles and arrows, you can free up the bottom navigation bar by disabling the other tools in the settings panel.

As good as the basic tools are, the app doesn’t offer any options to resize or move added annotation shapes. Once you add the annotation, they just stay there. However, as of this writing, the developer is actively working on the app to add more features with suggestions from users. So it should be good for basic use, give it a try.

Price: The application is completely free. At least as of this writing, the app is ad-free too.

Image Annotation, also called iAnnotation, is another relatively new and dedicated application for annotating your images. Like Snap Markup, the app has all the basic tools you will need like rectangle, circle, line, etc. There is also an option called “Auto” that allows you to draw free shapes and automatically convert them to real shapes. For example, if you freely draw a square, the application will convert it to a real square with straight lines. Apart from drawing different shapes, you can add voice notes tapping the “Mic” icon that appears in the lower right corner.

You can export your annotated images in different formats like PDF, MS Word, and HTML. The great thing about this app is that it saves all your annotated images in sessions and you can visit and re-edit them when needed. All you have to do is open the previous session.

Price: The free version has a limited number of sessions. After you have used all the sessions, you must delete the old sessions to create new ones. Alternatively, you can increase the number of sessions by purchasing from the app.

Ok, Inkboard is not just your usual annotation tool. In fact, it is designed to draw on photos and other images using a variety of tools. Unlike other apps on this list, there are no tools that allow you to draw shapes like circles, rectangles, arrows, etc. However, Inkboard gives you access to different drawing tools like pencils, markers, highlights, crayons, etc. Using these tools, you can free and annotate your image in any shape you want. All you have to do is open the image you want to annotate and use the provided tools to draw whatever you need.

By using Inkboard, you won’t have access to traditional annotation tools, but you won’t be limited to them either. If it’s simple to use and you don’t mind shape-free manipulation, give Inkboard a try. After all, it is free, lightweight, and easy to use.

Price: The application is completely free.

PhotoNotate combines the Phonto application and Image Annotation. that is, it allows you to add custom text and audio annotations to your image. In PhotoNotate you won’t find your traditional annotation tools like shapes and you can’t even draw on the images. However, you can add and style the text using your 20+ fonts, colors, background color, text placement, etc. PhotoNotate is quite useful when you want to quickly write on a photo or add a voice memo.

So, if you are looking for a simple app to annotate images with text and audio, give PhotoNotate a try and see if it fits your needs.

Price: The application is free but adds a watermark. You can remove the watermark with a $ 0.99 in-app purchase.
