This is the "iPhone only" version of Notebooks. If you want to run it on your iPad, too, you might want to pick the universal version of Notebooks, which is available here on the App Store, too. Notebooks provides you with convenient ways to quickly write down notes or carefully create beautiful documents, store and organize files, and manage tasks and projects. It converts documents to PDF or produces eBooks with just a few taps, and even offers an optional, full featured PDF Reader. If you are into Markdown, Notebooks is as well. So if you want to manage all your documents, writings, notes, tasks and files in one app, Notebooks is exactly what you are looking for. What you might be able do in a handful of unrelated apps, or what you can try to achieve in a collection of paper based notebooks, you can easily do in Notebooks, which fuses the power of multiple apps. This is what it combines: • Text Editor and Note Taker • Word Processor • Markdown Composer • HTML to Markdown Converter (Markdownify) • Task Manager and Reminder • File Storage and Organizer • Voice Recorder • Clipboard Manager • PDF Converter (including encryption) • eBook Creator Its robust Dropbox and WebDAV synchronization options make it easy to share your collections of documents not only across multiple iOS devices, but also with your Mac or PC. Dedicated desktop versions of Notebooks can seamlessly pick up your work exactly where you left it on your iPhone or iPad. What Users Say "Notebooks is my workhorse. I use it every day and all day to manage all my business and personal stuff. It has replaced my daybook and project notebooks entirely - and done so with efficiency and style. It's still the best!" “Notebooks is a wonderful App, which is so much better than the dozen other note apps I tried. It is sophisticated, in an unassuming way, so that you find yourself greatly rewarded and being productive without sacrificing time/effort to the App. I cannot tell you how much productivity I have gained. I am having a huge amount of fun, I use it constantly, more than the phone on my iPhone in fact." “You are GTD in every way that makes it efficient and makes me efficient.” Some More Detail - Notebooks allows you to conveniently write, capture and organize your ideas, notes, reminders, journals, diaries or details of life that you want to keep close at hand. If you need to take an important note, or search for one, you'll always have the ultimate notebook at your fingertips. - Notebooks stores and displays almost any document you want to carry with you: text and HTML, PDF, MS Office or iWork documents, web pages, photos, videos, music and even your Palm memos. Everything you would usually print out and file you can put directly into Notebooks, without adding bulk. - Notebooks also keeps your task lists and lets you tick off your to-dos as you complete them. You can divide your projects into nested sub projects, which makes them easier to handle, and with Notebooks' links you can cross-reference to documents which may be stored elsewhere in Notebooks. When a task reaches its due date, Notebooks' badge on the home screen reminds you of pending business, and an optional acoustic alert tries to draw your attention. - Notebooks provides tools to further process your documents; you can convert them to PDF or turn them into eBooks, but you can also merge multiple documents into one, or split meeting minutes into separate tasks and route them directly into your inbox. So you see, whether you want to draft a business presentation, type a chapter of your short-story, save web pages to read later, write an entry in your diary or journal, tick off your tasks, or just capture notes and ideas on the go, you need to have Notebooks today.

  • Terrible upgrade!!!

    By GGaltere
    I have avidly used Notebooks since it first came out. I purchased the upgrade as prompted by the app in lieu of IOS 11 release. NONE of my many files came over with the app upgrade and now I can’t get to them on the old version which does not work with IOS 11 - will not open at all. Adding insult to injury I had to repurchase the app for some reason as it did not show that I had purchased it in the App Store. Additionally I have sent 2 emails via their contact sheet and no response. Hopefully this negative rating will get someone’s attention. Until then I give it a “1” since I can’t give it a “0”!!
  • I’m hopeful

    By MasterMachinist
    I have Notebooks for iPhone. I loaded the update that claims compatibility with iOS 11. However, iOS tells me it’s not compatible and has to be updated. It WILL NOT sync with Dropbox which I need desperately. Am I missing something? This ap has worked flawlessly for me up until now. I HATE these updates.
  • Not working

    Just bought Notebooks for iPhone because my old version of Notebook stopped working with iOS 11. After upgrading the phone still says the developer needs to update this app to work with iOS 11. So now both versions are unusable 😡
  • Solid. Indispensable.

    By Norsk i Atlanta
    Been using it for several years. A few tiny glitches probably caused by transition to iOS 11 which I’m sure will be ironed out & none are critical.
  • Where Else Can You Get

    By Tapstars
    complete control over, and reliable syncing of your notes without being forced to create an account login or decide on a subscription service? Individual document encryption as a formatting option will be a nice new feature when it arrives.
  • Best app for detailed note takers.

    By SSherlock777
    I use to carry a small 3x5 notebook with a pen attached to jot notes down constantly throughout the day, at work and at home, to help me remember and stay organized. This app’s name is so apropos because it has totally replaced my paper notebook, with the ability to search and easily re-organize any of my notes!! Thank you Mr. Alfons!!
  • Excellent app - well supported by vendor!

    By Repent & Believe
    I've been using Notebooks for several years now and it works very well. I've got probably a 100+ files laid out over dozens of folders and sub folders. I personally sync it up with Dropbox for my backup and that works fine. I highly recommend it. I mean, I updated to the latest version the other day and noticed Dropbox syncing wasn't working. Then *today* there's a update out to fix that. Awesome vendor response!

    Just started using Notebooks but it's been long enough to know that this is a great app! Tried others but this does everything I need. Thanks!
  • Really great

    By opeyc
    I've been using Notebooks for 6+ years and have loved it since the first time I purchased and used it. It's exactly what I need. I love the way it doesn't try to do everything but do nothing well. It does very well what it does. And it does exactly what I need. It's a really great app. Very few bugs get in the way. The IU is sumple and intuitive. The developer has always been responsive to emails. I've emailed several times in 6 years and always gotten a response within a day or two. And no lame responses yet! I give it a solid A.
  • A big surprise!

    By Bjbudd
    I've been using this app for years now and can honestly say there isn't a better app to organize everything you need to organize or keep. How do I know this? Well, I've continue to compare this app to other apps like it. Why? Have no idea, just like seeing new features I guess. Nevertheless, this app wins every time.
