Digitate (http://digitate.org) is a free application designed for use on iPad devices, which allows scholars and enthusiasts with an interest in the visual and material elements of a cultural artefact to make notes and annotations directly on an image of any such artefact. For example, a literary scholar might use it to annotate the material or bibliographic elements of a rare text or first edition, while an art historian might do the same to an image of a painting.
