  • I continue to be amazed!

    I need to keep this short or no one will read it. Main Points. I’m a 55 year old college student, yup, no typos there. I am using this for all my note taking and it’s seemless integration with everything i’ve thrown at it is incredible. Note taking is a pleasure, easily searchable, and easily modifyable — is that a word? There is NO lag when writing/drawing, it is as real time as a pen to paper. I am also using it to download and catalog home product manuals. If you can obtain a pdf, you can store it here. It’s annotation abilities are easy to use and apply to any existing text or photos. I can go on and on about how well it works, (i’m using it with an 12.9” iPad pro with apple pencil) and I cannot say enough good about the overall experience. It’s backup capabilities will guarantee you will not lose any of your work, ever. Quickly, in closing, this app just works. It is perfect for note taking, of ANY kind, and will be your go to app to handwrite or document anything. It can convert to text, it can search text, and its ability to replace a paper journal is invaluable. After my last 3 classes I know i’ve saved at least one tree, a very large tree, and I couldn’t be more pleased with this products overall capabilities and user friendliness. GET it, USE it, ENJOY it.

    Found this program was far more than I needed. In addition it continued to want to use the iCloud which I do not use. After deleting the app there were still bits and pieces laying around that I had to get rid of. I would only recommend this for those that are heavily involved with documents. Maybe in a business or educational environment. For the normal note taker or document user I would not recommend it.

    This app is great, and I use it for all of my schoolwork. Could I put in one suggestion though? - It would be such a great addition if we could choose manually (whether it be by selecting page numbers or choosing them individually) which pages we want to export rather than only the current page or all pages. Thank you!
  • Love it!!

    By Maui Kid
    Works great and well worth the $7.99 price. Anyway we can get a dark theme and maybe include the different themes and covers in the updates rather than subscribing, downloading and placing in folders? Maybe this is already happening. Not sure. 5 Stars!!
  • Best out there

    I love this app! It works perfectly with my Apple Pencil. No lag or mistakes when writing. I’ve tried a couple note taking apps and they are not as responsive when writing as this app is. I’m a quadriplegic so I needed a way to be able to write as I can’t hold and write like usual. It has many features that are very useful for notes and has become my replacement to conventional paper and pen. Great job to the developers! I recommend this to anyone needing an app for notes or just random jots. I write everything in this app now and the one thing I noticed is that there is no password option to secure notes. Since I use GoodNotes for all my writings some things I write down can be sensitive and private. So to the developer, would there be a chance that password protection could be added sometime in the future?

    The app has pieces which I like better than notability like the notebook aspect, however if you are into organization and think Marin topic and sub files this is not for you in intuitiveness, their is minimal customization. I wish their was a different way of organizing and grouping within a topic however their isn’t. Definitely could use some work. The things I like over notability are drawing shapes and adding text anywhere on the page unlike notability. I haven’t found the cream of the crop just yet. I’m trying to use for my doctoral program and organize notes and article annotations

  • Amazing app!

    By Sureno134567
    Pretty good app for taking notes and drawing property layouts/sketches. I used the app to help me with my day to day notes while in the field - work pretty good with the Apple Pencil. Keep up the good work!
  • No recording functionality

    By ADubs923
    It’s a nice looking program but it has no record feature so I can’t record lectures as I take notes. I’ll stick with Noteshelf and pay $10 for
  • Very very good
