Looking for a web solution? 

www.pdfbuddy.com - PDF Buddy requires an account, but it’s free, and good for quick highlights, drawing, and adding text. (Note: I had some issues using it with Chrome.)


dochub.com - DocHub also requires an account, and is free; it allows highlights, pen, text, images, and supplies various stamps. More options available in a paid version.


Kami (formerly Notable PDF) - Chrome extension (7-day trial), works with pdfs in google drive; allows highlighting, shapes, drawing, strikethroughs, text, and comments. More options available based on pricing.


What about iOS?

Some librarians recommend Notability.
