Is there an Android app that enables hand-writing / drawing on a word document? I want to draw and write on the text. I don't want to edit the document, but write on the top of it. Instead of typing the letters using the keyboard, I want to draw on the text. Just like writing / drawing on a picture, I would like to draw on a word document.

I have been looking for this everywhere, can anyone suggest me a good app that can do this?

Thanks.

Polaris Office can open and edit word documents, and you can draw directly on the documents.

Not even a link to the app? And please don't "sign" your posts. –  Al E. Nov 30 '12 at 15:05

Can you even get Polaris Office if it's not preinstalled on your device? I'm not aware of any official distribution method for the Android version. –  eldarerathis Nov 30 '12 at 15:08

I think what you're looking for is usually called "freehand drawing". I can't find any app that supports free hand drawing on Word document. However, Adobe Reader for Android supports freehand drawing annotation on PDF document. You can convert your word documents to PDF and use Adobe Reader to make your annotations.

Freehand annotation on an editable document like Word generally makes little sense anyway, because it's not always obvious where the annotation should move to when the text is edited.
