Drawboard PDF is one of the best Windows PDF applications available to mark, annotate, or read PDFs and while the application isn’t free, we think that it’s worth its $9.99 price tag. Microsoft pre-installed this application on its Surface devices, clearly showing that developers there really enjoy using it. Now, a new beta for Drawboard PDF version 5.0 was released for Windows 10 and features enhanced performance and stability.

Now, a new beta for Drawboard PDF version 5.0 was released for Windows 10 and features enhanced performance and stability. This means that only the Windows 10 version will be updated from now, with support for Windows 8 and 8.1 versions of Drawboard PDF being phased out.

Notably, developers of Drawboard PDF have also removed the auto-save feature in order to prevent file corruption and app lag issues. We think that this feature will be added once again when users inevitably ask for it.
