Notability Positive Reviews
Syncing big files is very poorI wanted to love Notability. It’s unique recording feature is perfect for lecture notes, and so I decided to give it a full month test, switching from another very well known note taking app and using Notability exclusively. The result, now that the month’s experiment has concluded, is that I’m switching back to the other app. Leaving aside all the countless comparisons and contrasts between these two apps, the deal breaker for me was that Notability’s syncing between iPhone, iPad, and Mac is awful. Any imported big file would only sync to one device, never appearing on all three. PDF imports were the worst—I would check literally DAYS later for a given pdf file to appear on ALL of my devices, only to have it stuck on the one device I originally imported it from. The only way to finally get some files to sync was to delete the Notability app and reinstall it, and even then it was only successful some of the time. As you might imagine, that workaround was beyond disappointing—it was incredibly inconvenient and completely untenable.
Don’t get me wrong: Notability is still a very worthwhile purchase. There’s a lot to like about the features and its ease of use, and I’ll definitely be keeping it as my backup. And I’ll still use it whenever I need to combine note taking with recordings. But until the developers fix syncing, there’s no way that I could ever rely on this as my go-to app for notes or creative projects..Version: 9.4.2
Overall, A Really great appSomething that I really liked about notability was the simple and intuitive layout. This made it really easy for me to organize my notes and help me maintain order with my notes. Another thing that I really liked was all of the new updates that really helped with making things run more smoothly (i.e. the favorites bar, being able to search for key words within the notes themselves instead of just the title, and the magnifying glass).
Some areas of improvement would be being able to adjust the shape of the magnifying box because there are sometimes when I’m trying to edit a specific place and the magnifying box just doesn’t fit right. Another thing would be to be able to open more than two notes at once. This would come in handy for those to do notes simultaneously on multiple sections. It would also be cool if when your in portrait mode for the notes you have the option to be able to stack the notes top of one another instead of seeing them side. Then one last area of adjustment would be to be able to have a bookmarked notes bar like how there is a bookmarked pages (within each notes) bar. It would make jumping between two desired note documents a little bit easier.
Anyways, that’s it from me. Thank you for making a really great app. Totally looking foreword to what’s in store for the future of this app..Version: 10.2.4
Almost perfectThis app is almost perfect. From the beginning I downloaded both GoodNotes and notability to try both. I can honestly say I can hardly use GoodNotes now, because I can do so much more here I one place. If I could suggest a couple of things that may make this program a little better for a student. First , It would be great if you could choose a folder from the drive or photos(of slides)and then pop the entire file IN the document I’m writing on and it default to a page size image - as doing them one by one , then having to size each one is a real pain when I have a bunch to add. One thing GoodNotes / books does well. Or at least if I could choose more than one image from my note to drag in ...OR not have to click back into the photo options button after each one as its a real pain if I want to import several pages and to a note in a hurry. I would love to have the option to read and turn my pages horizontally like a book and have a book folder file to confine or open it easily - like GoodNotes. Besides these two things - it seems perfect. Its a great well thought out program that keeps progressing with so many great options. Good job to the developers.Version: 8.4.2
Needs better organizationThis app is very helpful, especially the feature to record lectures. I can stay on top of what my professor says easier, and use the Apple Pencil to highlight or emphasize certain points. There is a bit of a delay for the notes and the audio, so when I click on a note, I know to automatically hit the “rewind 10 seconds” button, but I just deal with it because it is so helpful regardless. However, while the recording ability is the star feature of this app, the other features need improvement.
1. Since more classes are taking place online due to the pandemic, there should be an option to record lectures using the iPad’s internal microphone. Right now, I play the lectures on my phone and record audio with the iPad, since I do not have a better option.
2. Second, and my biggest gripe with the app is ORGANIZATION. Although you can have subjects, and place notes in the subjects, I want the ability to make folders within the subjects. A lot of my subjects in school are so complex - with labs and assignments in addition to lecture notes and different subtopics, the ability to make folders within subjects is seriously ESSENTIAL. The most I can do is change the name at the beginning of the file to reflect what kind of material it is (ex: Lab 1, Assignemnt 2, etc.) but the ability to make folders really holds this app behind. I still use it for the recording feature, but the lack of organizational options available is really frustrating..Version: 10.1.1
Notability is great...but not on iPhoneWriting a review of Notability is hard. On the one hand, I use it every single day on my iPad. I do a lot of reading/research for my job, so Notability has saved me from being buried under an endless pile of paper. I even pair it up with Scanbot so I can quickly scan materials in meetings and then have all my notes/handouts in a single place. Being able to search my handwriting is a game-changer! So is having access to my documents and notes everywhere, including my laptop, and having all changes and edits synced through iCloud. I’ve always wanted to go paperless with ubiquitous access to everything; Notability is my hub for that.
Which brings me to my chief complaint about Notability: it’s iPhone app is terrible. It’s nice to see my notes on my phone if I need to skim something quickly on the go, but basic functionality is missing. You can’t search a document, highlight pages, see all the pages in a document—if you’re looking for something, you can only scroll until you find it. That’s ok if you’re talking about two pages of notes; but if you are looking at a 50 page journal article trying to find something, it’s ridiculous. Competitors have this functionality on iPhones, but Notability has never added it. I wish they would! I also wish they would format text-only notes like Google Docs, adjusting text size for a given display without affecting the formatting..Version: 8.2.7
Best Notetaking App I foundI’ve been using this app for years, and appreciate all the updates that have occurred since then. This app has sufficed all my note taking needs, in and out of the classroom. One feature I would like to see is the ability to rename recordings, and possibly to attach these recordings to individual pages. One thing I’ve tried doing this semester is have the recording function on while at a lecture, but having numerous recordings in a file that grows daily is difficult with the current set up. If you don’t remember the time stamp or recording number for a particular point, you have to guess and listen for a bit to see if it’s right. It’s either that, or guess based on the date the notes were recorded. If you could at least rename the audio files, the app would be more useful. It would also be nice if you could change the paper style of individual pages, as well as a feature that easily allows you to draw geometric shapes (adding a figure on top of a graph sticky or any other element get tricky when you click on the wrong one. Sometimes because of that, the graph background ends up on top, and the figure behind it, rendering it useless).
There aren’t really any visible bugs with this version of the app, Would recommend for someone looking for a suitable note taking app, whether it’s handwritten or type. I think the addition of a few features would make it better..Version: 8.2.7
Great university study tool with a couple issuesI was using OneNote on a Surface tablet until the digitizer stopped working. I decided to try using an iPad Pro instead, since they’re lighter. Notability was the only app to offer most of the same functionality as OneNote on a Windows tablet. There are many things that I prefer about Notability, but there are a few issues that prevent me from giving it more stars: first, I would like the ability to create a group of commonly used highlighters/pens for marking up documents. I have a system of using certain colors to represent certain things, and I would like to be able to organize all those highlighters and pens into a group where I determine the order and placement. If that is possible in Notability, I haven’t been able to figure it out. Secondly, I use Notability in a setting where I’m regularly working with several languages (including RTL - Right to Left languages like Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic). Notability does not have good support for combining multiple languages in one document at this time, especially not mixed English-Hebrew or English-Aramaic. Please give Notability the ability to recognize and format RTL languages. I can do that natively on most Apple apps, and many 3rd party apps, so the inability to do that on Notability really sticks out. Please improve these issues, and I will gladly give it a 5 star rating. In fact, if those two issues are fixed, I won’t even miss using OneNote for most of my coursework..Version: 9.0.1
Palm Rejection Problems Since UpdatingI can attest to the comments regarding the palm rejection issues after the recent update. Since the update, anytime I attempt to take class notes with the Apple Pencil results in erratic screen behavior. It will zoom in or out randomly, delete the last portion of what is written, or the screen will shift/shake. This only occurs when I am trying to write and my palm is resting on the lower portion of the screen.
I have had some previous issues with palm rejection, mainly with the shifting of the screen or zoom but it has been manageable up until this update. It has become basically unusable for me in terms of handwriting since the recent update and the handwriting feature is nearly the sole purpose for purchasing the app in my case. I’ve basically had to resort to other apps for note taking because this has become nearly impossible to write on (unless I write without my palm on the screen and that is definitely not an alternative for me).
After reading the previous comments, I have already performed a hard reset of my iPad (an iPad Pro 11” on iOS 12.3), turned off the palm rejection feature in Notability and turned it back on, and finally uninstalled the app completely then reinstalled. None of these attempts have rendered any improvement. Hopefully this is something that can be investigated by the developer and corrected quickly as this has been my preferred app for note taking..Version: 8.4.5
A great note taking app for school but the Bugs are becoming annoyingThis app could probably be the best note taking app for students just because of the recording feature. The tools up top are fine but they are missing so much compared to GoodNotes. Most of the size for the Pen are useless. After the 4th or 5th size the strokes become way too big for any practical purpose. Same thing with the highlighter except it the opposite. The varying sizes for the erasers is great though because I can basically erase pixels or entire sentences if needed. The cut and paste tool will not select small strokes or words for whatever reason, so sometimes I’m forced to erase and redraw or write. Other than that its works great. Seriously the only tool carrying this app is the Recording feature, GoodNotes has them beat in every other department. (I never mentioned the lack of templates). If GoodNotes has that feature I would go back to GoodNotes immediately, but they don’t so I stay with Notability. Now the bugs are getting annoying. I cant go a 1 minute without my lines not drawing or the app freezing or the zoom in feature freezing the app. Also the random shapes I get when writing sometimes that I cant delete with the back button and for some reason can only be removed by the eraser. Idk maybe these bugs will eventually send me back to GoodNotes and lectures will have to be recorded the hard way..Version: 9.2.4
Perfect For StudentsThis app is my go to app for anything I do in school. It has made taking notes fun and easy. And now after using this app for a little over a year and a half, I can absolutely say that this is my favorite note taking app. Practically everything that I do for school is on this app, which when paired to my phone makes it a breeze to quickly scroll through my notes at any time. The writing feels fluid with great options for size and colors. Importing files and documents is extremely easy and fast. On tops of this, the line straitening and shape recognition is amazingly useful and easy, without being intrusive or correcting things that were not meant to be corrected.
My one issue I have is with organization. Especially towards the end of the year when I have hundreds of notes and files, they can often be lost in the clutter. I have found ways around this by specifically labeling my files so all of my notes, quizzes, tests, and handouts are all sorted by category alphabetically, but I wish there was a way to put folders inside of subjects. This app is my favorite, but to make it the best it really needs a better way to organize files inside of subjects. Again, I cant imagine creating folders inside of subjects would be hard do and I really hope they include this soon in an update..Version: 10.0
Needs Higher Level of OrganizationCurrently I am loving this app. I have been using it for a couple days now and I’ve been able to transfer all my notes from Microsoft’s OneNote without a hiccup. Though in my time using this app, I have discovered two things that could need some improvement on. The first is, being able to name a file the same name as another, so long as it’s in a different location. Currently i am left adding a (1) or (2) for duplicate file names for different classes. And ultimately my notes look less organized. With that said, my main concern is the lack of notes segregation and organization. Currently, the only two methods to separate your notes are the Divider and Subject functionality. It would be Godsend if there was another sub-level category. A folder within a subject per se. For example: You have Math as a subject, Great! Now within the math subject, you have different kinds of notes that you would like separate from others. Like notes for different kinds of tests, notes for quizzes, notes for Classroom discussion, notes for projects, notes for resource documents. All of these you would like to be easily distinguishable from another, thus you group them likewise. Consider implementing these features as I believe it will become a game changer, this is definitely a Five-Star app, the three star is just motivation. Love you guys!.Version: 8.2.5
The worst customer supportI love this app, it is definitely the best for note taking on a tablet out there. However, I had a performance issue last year and I tried to contact support and no one ever got back to me. I’ve had similar issues and didn’t bother reaching out because I knew it would be futile. In my opinion, a product can be mediocre, but if it has great customer service, that sets it apart. Notability is the opposite. The product is great (in theory), but whenever there are issues, there is no support. This app is constantly glitching, between the handwriting jumping around the page randomly, not allowing me to close out of the right side menu that allows you to search in the document, or the most annoying bug where a note scrolls to the bottom of a page and will not let you go back to the top until you close out of the app. Currently, I am having an issue where I have two notes open at once (one is a pdf of my textbook, and one is the notes I am taking from it), and there are numerous problems, including those I just mentioned, as well as tools not working as I am trying to go back and forth writing on both documents. This is the best notetaking app I’ve tried, but the constant bugs are extremely frustrating when this is the main mode I use to read textbooks, take notes, and get homework done..Version: 10.0.2
Great appI absolutely love this app. Between work, school, and life, this app helps with notes, and my planners for everything. It’s so much more convenient to carry my iPad around rather than a bunch of books. This app is very user friendly, making it very easy to take notes and convert from the pen to highlighter, etc. You can even search your own handwriting and text from a pdf that has been uploaded in the same file which makes it easy to go back and look for something specific instantly rather than scroll through pages of notes. Great app!!!
Update: I recently tried to access my notes on my iPhone, but half of the files wouldn’t sync between the ipad and my phone, which was annoying. I had down time to study and couldn’t because they wouldn’t sync. The only way to fix was to duplicate the file on the ipad so it would sync to my phone. It wasn’t a huge deal for that day, but could potentially be a major issue down the line if you don’t have the original device you used for the notes.
Other than that, I still think it’s a great app and recommend it to anyone who is switching to digital notes and who doesn’t want to carry around a bunch of binders/notebooks!.Version: 8.3.3
Best note-taking appI’ve waited a long time to write this because I want to know an app fully before judging it. I’ve used Notability for the past 3+ years along with GoodNotes. I can confidently say that Notability is the superior app. Yes, there are many more features that I wish were present in both apps but, as a whole, this is the best note taking app. In its basic form, handwriting in the app is perfect. Whatever software that GoodNotes uses to try to improve your handwriting is incredibly annoying and causes it to look worse. Its not that way with Notability. What you write is what it shows. The file management style is much easier to follow than the endless folders in GoodNotes. Also, when major updates come, you don’t have to pay for it. Paper templates and being able to set your 3 most used colors and pen sizes right on the task bar will HOPEFULLY be coming to Notability soon. That is the biggest drawback I think. Having to do multiple touches every time I want to switch pen size can be annoying and when taking notes in lecture, can take up valuable time. Having those right on the top bar would be INVALUABLE. Other than that, this app is superior to GoodNotes in general..Version: 9.3.5
A staple, but disappointingUpdate: I have used this app for YEARS now through high school, college, and now medical school. I love the app and appreciate it to no ends. However, one ongoing issue I have noticed is its unreliability with downloading ppt files to PDF within the app from Canvas. I don’t know if it’s a problem with communication with canvas or just a general issue with converting to pdf within the app, but it’s annoying to have to convert all my lecture notes to pdf on my MacBook then transfer them to my iPad. It’s so unreliable I don’t think I can use only my iPad anymore, which is what my goal was. Anyway, long story short: I love this app, but it’s been frustrating for about the past year or two.
The new update added better pencil integration, ,earning now it has actual pressure sensitivity rather than just the way they did it before which was through speed sensitivity determining the weight of the line drawn. This combined with the other amazing aspects of this app that I have always enjoyed make this my favorite app ever. I use it in college to take notes and annotate presentations during lecture as well as at work for taking notes during meetings or as a work log. It is simply an amazing app, well worth the money, and I look forward to continue using it with my iPad Pro through medical school. Thank you ginger labs!!!.Version: 7.1
Fix iCloud syncing issuesI love noteability and would give 5 stars if it weren’t for the iCloud issues. I have the app on my phone, MacBook, and iPad. I mainly use noteability on my iPad and enjoyed being able to create a note, and seamlessly read or edit it on my laptop or phone. However every once in awhile noteability would freeze all of my notes on my iPad and I wouldn’t be able to read or edit until it was done syncing which would take at least 30 minutes, sometimes hours. What’s even more frustrating is that sometimes I’ll be editing a note and the app would be syncing that same note to the cloud in the background. So when I exit the note I have 2 sometimes 5 copies of the same note, and I have no idea which one is up to date. This especially happens if I have noteability open on more than one device at a time.
I got so sick of it that I’ve disabled iCloud syncing and only use it on my iPad, which is a shame because I paid 10 extra dollars for the app on my MacBook (which is absolutely not worth it on its own by the way). The only device that gives all of the features that noteability has to offer is the iPad.
With that being said, I absolutely love the app on my iPad and I hope that the dev team will fix this issue soon..Version: 9.1
Saved My BaconI’m currently in grad school and after my first semester, I decided to switch to digital note taking. I was simply overwhelmed by the massive paper trail that often happens in grad school. I shopped around and I saw this app and decided to give it a go. I don’t normally spend $10 on an app, but it has been worth every penny! The organization is top notch, it works with many different type of styli (I use the Friendly Swede interchangeable tip stylus, because of the cost, but Apple Pencil works great if you have an iPad Pro), the recording feature is great, sharing notes is super easy and it’s been so convenient to have all of my school documents in one place. So far, I’m at 600+ documents and I haven’t lost anything since using this app. I absolutely credit this app with helping me pass my comprehensive exams.
My only complaints is that I wish I wouldn’t have to buy it again for Mac. I also would like it if they were to incorporate tabs, so I wouldn’t have to back out to the menu every time I wanted to switch between a few related notes. In spite of these shortcomings, I still give it five stars because of how much it’s helped up my game as a grad student. Thanks, Notability!.Version: 7.0.1
Great for schoolI’ve been using this for med school, and it has been fantastic. I’m able to download all professor’s powerpoint presentations to notability and sort them in a pretty simple way. I’m able to search all my notes pretty easily, even for things that I write on the iPad which can come in handy. No real complaints about the app, but I can always ask for recommendations. 1. I wish I could search in one division. For instance, if I am searching a drug that works in a combination like phenytoin, one subject it can be found in is cardiovascular and also neuro. I can search all notes or I can search one ‘subject’, but not a division (one tier higher than subject, a division holds subjects). I do think that the phone app and computer app can be improved to be more on par with the features of the iPad, and I think the sidecar ability can definitely be improved to work a lot better with the computer version of notability. Also, I wish it was possible to be able to organize with 1-2 more tiers. That being said, this app has worked way better than I expected it to for school. I’ve never used goodnotes or onenote, but notability is worth a shot for sure..Version: 9.3.4
Purchased on good reviews but it’s not up to snuffGenerally I like using this app but it has caveats which are worth mention. It seems that copy/paste should be a simple thing all apps have included but I’m not finding this the case with Notability. If I copy information from my browser or another note app, it should be easy to paste into this one! Instead it does nothing, nothing at all, just sits there staring back at me with that blank expression like it has no clue what I’m wanting.
Before telling me it’s there or to contact support... this brings me to another gripe. Why is it so hard to give this company feedback? There is no way I can see in the app to give it anymore than there is in the Apple store. The developer never bothered to fill their contact information out. Is this because they don’t wish to hear from us? That might explain why simple procedures like copy/paste are not being addressed. Even free apps do this, most everything does. I shouldn’t need a clipboard to compensate this missing feature. Add contact information and easy to reach feedback, include copy/paste and I’ll bump up my review score. This is simply unacceptable in this day and age when we pay for features and services that for whatever reasons aren’t there..Version: 10.2.6
WHAT?I haven’t been paying much attention to update when suddenly I realize that my Notability App is awesomely different. I have been a long time user of this app and have loved it since day one. I have experimented with other note taking apps but very quickly return to this workhorse of an app. Now with the latest update I am blown away! I love to write with my apple pen and being able to convert to text is extremely useful. So far it has been flawless in conversion; however I am old school in my penmanship so that my work in my favor. Being able to put notes side by side? Since I convert all documents into files in Notability for meetings, to be able to pull up other documents alongside of the notes I am taking is absolutely amazing.
One thing that I am watching and am unsure of yet is that in watching battery consumption Notability seems to have suddenly become my primary drain, outstripping my FaceBook app. So this is something that I will be watching since I tend to leave Notability running in the background.
But overall I want to give a big shout of thanks to the developers for making a great app even better..Version: 8.0.1
The Best App You Will Ever Purchase!I know for starters this app may seem like a lot, especially with the cost for both the iPhone/iPad and the cost of the Mac apps, BUT ITS WORTH IT! Being a college student I use this app every single day in all my classes. The app is so easy to use, and so intuitive. The iPad app is amazing for use with Apple Pencil or other styluses, and the fun pen colors and paper choices make notes less boring. This app also works with TONS of file types which you can import and annotate. I have nor used the voice feature yet, but I am thrilled to as I am sure it is as good as everything else this app offers. Finally my favorite feature is that notability automatically saves all my files and updates them constant across all my devices, so I never have to wait for my files to load. The useful feature of backing up the notes to google drive or Dropbox is amazingly helpful and lets me have my notes accessible even when I am not on my own laptop with the app. Overall MUST BUY for college students especially, or anyone who is a frequent note taker or writer. Absolutely, 100%, hands down, the most amazing app on the App Store!!.Version: 9.0.6
I can see why this is #1Honestly, I was really debating on whether on not I should use Notability to take my notes or if I should use GoodNotes 5. In the end, I ended up getting both just to try them out, and what I found was that the UI for Notability was almost flawless for me. Being able to record audio on here is great, but I think the biggest factor for me was how it felt like writing notes in this app. It’s literally feels like I am just writing on paper. My handwriting on Goodnotes 5 just seemed messier and I noticed that they would try to alter my handwriting a bit. If I could make some suggestions, it would be nice if the highlighter could go under the words rather than over it. I would also love the option to just automatically switch back to pen mode after using the eraser (Useful tool in goodnotes). There would be times where I’m writing and the app doesn’t register it and would momentarily freeze a bit. But these are minor inconveniences. Overall, this is a great app to take notes on and annotate PDFs (what I mainly do). The partial eraser is amazing and the automatic backup is a extremely convenient. Definitely recommend it for college!.Version: 9.0.6
This is the one -You can stop looking now, get NotabilityI’m a scientist, back in school, going to grad school soon. I spent whatever it took to check out all of the notes apps, and Notability is the best. I can record a lecture or seminar, while I’m taking notes, I can draw molecular structures, I can import PowerPoint slides and annotate them. If my page/slide is pretty crowded, I can create a “sticky” and take notes on it, and I can move it around when I need to see what is under it. I have made entire multimedia presentations with this app. You can save your page as a PDF, or I’ll even just take a screenshot of what I want to present or turn in, crop the margins, and use that. I can have sections of slides and book pages, or a picture of a handout, then work the problem out with my Apple Pencil, and turn it all in as one convenient PDF or pic I can email to my professors. The interface is much more flexible than Microsoft apps, and plays better with other apps and platforms. Seriously, I use the crap out of this thing. I checked out all of the common note apps, and this one is just more capable and adaptable than any of the others. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.Version: 9.4.7
Great app but could be improved for teachingI gladly bought this app as I use it to teach University classes. It allows me to write with my ApplePencil while projecting my notes from the iPad, so after every lecture I have an editable version of the notes and I can produce a PDF. Also, I can include multimedia contents, and images from the web.
However I found difficult importing external PDF in an open note as a page, and if this is the first page I cannot remove it anymore. Also, the app could be improved with a couple of very helpful additions: 1) to re-use the notes the following academic year, I would like to be able to “hide” part of the notes, to “unhide” one line at a time as I explain the notes; 2) an even better option would be to be able to create a greyed-out version of the notes in order to re-write on them during the class, i.e. as if I was writing for the first time. A found a workaround using semi-transparent boxes to overlay to the notes, but now this feature seemed gone with the latest updates, which is disappointing since updates shoul “add” and not remove features. I hope someone from the developing team is reading these reviews ..Version: 9.2.1
Excellent application, everyday usage by meI’m an academic (astronomer), and as such, an integral part of my work involves paper and proposal revision, writing research notes, doing calculations, etc. When I decided to get an iPad to more efficiently do all this work, I thoroughly researched apps that could facilitate this work; that’s how I found this app.
Notability allows you to do all of the above in an efficient and intuitive manner. You can easily share annotated documents, papers, calculations with other collaborators (eg, via email or cloud-based storage like Google Drive), organize your work documents, quickly access them —- basically, Notability made all that I needed and ever wanted from a tablet to happen. No more printed papers with annotations, no more scanning documents to sign them, no more ‘in which notebook did I derive my calculation’ —- all is well organized within the app.
I thank the authors of the app for it! It has made my work much more efficient. In this pandemic era, I even use the app to share some live-calculations with students whenever needed (ie, use it like a whiteboard), and then I share the notes I created with them..Version: 9.3.5
Suggestions for DevelopersThere are some missing features that hold it back from 5 stars:
1) When I take notes and annotate, I like to have multiple pens and highlighters out. There should be an option to add additional pens and highlighters to the toolbar. When rapidly taking notes, time is precious, and this would make it less tedious.
2) inserting diagrams is too difficult. There should be a math or shape mode that you can toggle on and off that auto recognizes shapes and fixes them. Having an math text mode that auto recognizes math notation would also be fantastic ... p.s. OneNotes version of this is poorly executed.
3)**** when I record lectures, I am always slightly behind when note taking. If there were an advanced feature where we could choose where the audio track lines up with the notes, that would be spectacular. Revisited notes would be much superior and would be more like sitting through the lecture again.****
4) there should be an option to directly add in PDFs to our notes. They could be added in as entire pages to the document, just integrating the PDF, or auto convert to an image to be pasted in. But working with PDFs in existing notes should be an option..Version: 8.2.7
Great app! But needs some improvementsI have been using this app for about 6 month now for college. It is extremely useful with my iPad Pro! I have been able to almost completely replace all my books, laptop and notebook. It is a super convenient app that will allow you to have everything you need to study on the go on any device with the app. Although this app is pretty reliable, I have two complaints that I would like for them to be resolved. First, when trying to import a pdf file from the internet to a note that has been already written, and selecting “add to another note” there is a bug that misplaces the categories of the notes, so the “easy way” for selecting the note goes away, and you’re left scrolling through all of your notes until you find the one you want. Also, it would be a great addition if one could have two notes open at the same time, because sometimes you need to see a note while copying on a blank one.
These are two minor bugs that can be resolved easily, as the app is constantly being updated, so do not hesitate to buy this app. Its really useful..Version: 7.1
Almost perfectSmall things I wish were added:
1. Ability to change the color from yellow when you search for a word. I normally use the yellow highlighter tool so when I search for something I can't find it easily because it's already yellow.
2. Ability to have multiple 'favorite bars'. Some of my PowerPoints have 1 slide per page but some power points have 6 slides per page so I my favorites bar is twice as long as it needs to be because every pen/highlighter is on there twice just in a different size.
3. A recent page feature. I have some very long notes/textbooks on notability occasionally l'll be annotating then use the search to find something hundreds of pages away but yet still in the same note. However to get back to the page I was originally annotating I have to either scroll through hundreds of pages or search for a specific word that was on that page.
4. Ability to change what the Apple pencil 2nd generation double tap does. Most of the time when writing I just want to erase the last pen stroke I made. It would save time if I was able to just double tap and have it undo and still leave me on the pen tool..Version: 10.4
A Teacher's Best SidekickI just want to say how thrilled I am to find this app amongst the many note taking apps in the app store. This has been the best that I have found. I am completely overjoyed with the ability to import many different file types, take notes on them, and then send them to anyone. And to have it sync with Google Drive, DropBox, and import from email, and well, pretty much wherever you need is fantastic. I teach a young girl who recently got over cancer but handwriting ability has yet to return. Our school gave her an iPad and we've downloaded Notability and so far it's working out fantastically. She's got a tab for every one of her classes and I've gotten all of the teachers to email her work to her. With the zoom feature (which by far is one of the biggest strengths compared to other note taking apps), she can get up close and write on her assignments with her finger and then emails us back her tests and assignments. We were worried how we would ever be able to do this before but with Notability, it has been a breeze. We really can't thank you enough. Keep up the good work..Version: 10.4.2
Still using every day five years laterMy favorite thing is having one long infinite vertical space to write to. I can easily scroll down, or use the side bad to find a specific page. Searching is easy. Pen selection is my favorite across apps (use the short cut tab)with pen size and color selection quick and intuitive.I have a work tab with several different documents and a home tab. Its nice to go to my home tab and select taxes and see my notes from last year’s meeting say, or anytime I research something, its there waiting for me. Oh doctor’s office visits, all right there scrolling up through years of in office visit notes. For work I have a Daily log, for just writing, then specific docs. It syncs between my devices easily. I am waiting for a web based version so I can cut and paste directly from my work windows machine into my pages. Thats my biggest disconnect right now. I use OneNote at work for a lot, but I would use notability more if I could.
I keep trying other programs here and ther, but nothing ever competes with the simpliticity and joy of note taking that Notability has..Version: 10.4.2
Obsessed.... but have to fix some recent glitchesMy favorite app ever- changed my life while trying to juggle my crazy workload in grad school (I use it with my iPad so I can take notes with the Apple Pencil directly onto my slides)- amazing! The only thing though as of recently, Notability keeps freezing/unexpectedly quitting on me (I guess since the newest update?!). Luckily, other than losing a few seconds-minutes of recordings in class while trying to get the app back on, all material is recovered. However, it’s extremely frustrating and a nuisance when trying to obviously be productive. Also, there HAS to be a way for the developer to find a way to select/copy multiple pages at once, I can’t understand how that’s still not a tool on Notability at this point in time.... This is probably my biggest frustration with the app, because I need to transfer or delete 1+ slides pretty frequently (sometimes 50+ !!) and it makes it soo time consuming to do individually(not to mention, recently, ends up freezing and quitting while doing so!). With a few more updates this app will be EVEN MORE AMAZING!.Version: 9.0.6
Almost PerfectHello, I hope you are well. Let me begin my telling you that Notability is my favorite and most important app. The interaction I’ve had with you has been great, and I believe that all of you at Ginger Labs are wonderful. However, I am limited in what I can do with Notability, because as the Tactical Operations Bureau Commander for a major American police department, leading SWAT, Bomb Squad, Crisis Negotiations, and Fugitive Appreciation operators, I cannot fully utilize Notability to its potential due to the lack of proper security. I respectfully request that you utilize the readily available Apple API’s and include Touch/Face ID and encrypt this otherwise wonderful app, so that those protecting America’s safety and freedom can carry the sensitive information on our iOS devices that we need to. 8 out of 10 apps on my iPhone and iPad have touch/face ID, so I don’t understand why the finest notes app available lags behind in this important feature. I would gladly pay for this feature, and I hope that you will add it sooner than later. This is far more important than the emoji search that was added in 8.1. Thank you for considering this request. Be well, be safe, and God Bless!.Version: 8.1
Program hangs, a lotThere is so much to love about this app, but I cannot get past the point that it’s primary purpose is to be a note taker, and, when being used for it’s primary purpose, it hangs. A lot. When you are in the middle of taking notes, and the software freezes, you have to stop taking notes, you have to stop paying attention to what is being said or shown on the PowerPoint presentation, and you have to attend to your notetaking program which won’t let you take notes. You end up missing significant chunks of what you purchased the app to help you chronicle in the first place. Sometimes the hang resolves after a minute or so of doing nothing. Other times the only way I can get Notability to work again is to power off my iPad and power it back on. This, of course, takes so long that it is intolerably intrusive. I am running Notability on a new 2018 iPad Pro with the latest software update. Again, if your main purpose is for taking notes during a lecture or a meeting or a conversation, you cannot rely on this program..Version: 8.4.7
Great app, so close to AwesomeI really like how easy it is to use, find notes, and search within notes (handwriting recognition is amazing!)
The layout is really intuitive and there are plenty of qualities that make it really friendly for school and work notes (recoding function of course, but also the shape detection, being able to import and export files between app is such an amazing function, and enough color customizing/options but not too much to be overwhelming). What it lacks is a better organization system. Right now, it’s like binder dividers, and while that is superficially nice, I’d like to be able to nest my documents, or at least be able to quickly visually recognize them with an icon or “cover page.” Additionally I really want to be able to change the page layouts for individual pages within a file. It is so frustrating to have to have to keep switching back and forth between layouts because my needs change within the file. There are other competitor apps of course, that have either own features and deficiencies, so for now we’ll see how long I stay with this as my main note taking app..Version: 10.2.4
So Good but needs more color!I love this app. I bought it years ago and never used it on my phone, but since getting an iPad it has become one of my most used apps both for work and for personal use. It works so well and I haven’t seen any glitches or issues with the features. I will say the color choices for paper backgrounds are lacking and I would really love to see some improvements there. We should be able to choose the background from a full spectrum color palette like the pens and highlighters. Yes you could use the highlighter to change the paper color, but it only changes the section of the page that is currently on the screen. When you scroll down to continue your note and try to highlight in the new background colors, you end up overlapping the previously colored areas and end up with sections that are discolored.
More line templates, like for handwritten check lists would also be appreciated.
I don’t care about the themes, I’m happy with black, but to be honest the paid options aren’t even remotely tempting. Not good choices..Version: 9.4.7
Your experience with this app may be different than mineMy experience with this app has been that it's full with features like gifs, audio recording while note-taking that syncs with the notes you type or hand-write, I find this feature to be a wonderful tool to have when you're note taking while you're listening to a lecture. It may be useful in the event that you may miss something the professor/teacher is saying. It also has handwriting detection, which I found to be another wonderful addition to the tool set being offered in this app. I had used it in highschool and use it now as well for many things. You could submit your notebook checks to your teacher via email as a pdf (if they accept it). You may also use any one of your preferred cloud services to back up your notes, including iCloud sync between your iOS devices. One feature I'd recommend they add is the ability to back-up locally to the device and/or the option to backup to your own personal cloud storage like with external hard drives that offer that service..Version: 8.4.2
Possibly the greatest application for studentsNotability changed the game for me, I never even think about printing lecture slides and wasting paper. This is a must have for students, it allows you to essentially write on any pdf/ppt. You can even import images into your notes which makes it useful if I want to take a picture of something or even a screenshot of my textbook and import it. Also has tools for recording voice if you want to record a lecture and associate it with a particular note. Handy system for organizing and color coding topics/folders. Even syncs with most major cloud data services like google drive, Dropbox, etc. Tools to markup your notes are pretty intuitive and easy to use, has lots of useful tools to choose from. It’s very easy to study even if I don’t have my iPad since I can open this on my iPhone and everything syncs. Has a computer app too which costs more but it’s super easy to just airdrop notability notes to your laptop and open them there. I would highly recommend this if you intend to use your iPad for school..Version: 9.0.5
Amazing Navigation and DesignI’m obsessed with this app. I use it on my iPad for all my classes, as well as creative projects, any readings I want to do, and regular note taking. I absolutely love the functionality and navigation. You can search your own handwriting (don’t have to convert it to text), can import and export files (images, screenshots, PDFs, MS Word, etc.) all with extreme ease (this works incredibly with airdrop). I also love being able to switch between notes, have multiple notes open on one screen, and having my favorite writing utensils saved as a toolbar. The backup/sync works very well. I absolutely love being able to cut out and move around/paste my handwriting, it makes super neat notes that are simple to organize and clean up if you do make mistakes while writing. All of this allows me to take notes instead of typing, with all the ease and perks of electronic files.
The only thing I would like to see is an option to not layer the highlighter if you lift your pen. Other than that, this is essentially my entire office now..Version: 10.1.6
Absolutely the best note taking app for iPadI’ve been using this app for 6 years, all throughout high school and into my sophomore year of college. It is honestly the best app I’ve ever used for notes. It’s so easy to convert notes to PDFs and import almost any type of file, even pictures! It’s also great for writing, and I love that they have a left handed mode for all of us lefties. It makes it so much easier to write. There are also different types of paper that you can use to personalize your notes! The latest update allows you to view 2 notes at the same time, and you can write on one while recording the other! Definitely the best feature for me! The only things I would want to change is to add more colors and themes. The selection is already great of both, but I am a little bored with having to use the same selection over and over. I also think an improvement would be to let people create folders within folders or subjects. This would help me further organize my notes. Honestly though, I love everything about this app!.Version: 8.2.9
Unparalleled Note-Taking AppI got this app when it was in the developmental stage and I loved it back then. I couldn’t even imagine the potential this app could have. Every single update brings amazement to my eyes. This is the simplest yet most amazing note taking app you could possibly ever hope for. I am currently college student and I can’t even begin to explain how this app has aided me in my academic journey. You can record lectures simultaneously while writing down notes and then go back and see exactly when the lecturer was talking when you wrote down a certain note. That in itself is amazing. Additionally, this app also allows you to search keywords for your handwriting (yes it’s even capable of reading terrible handwriting like mine). What else could you ask for in an app? This app does everything that you could ever want while taking notes, and then some. Overall, this app deserves much more than 5 stars and I want to personally thank the creators and developers for making this app a possibility and for aiding me in me academic career..Version: 8.4.2
Horrible app - my experience as a current med studentI have been using the app the past year for medical school and could not be more dissatisfied/frustrated. The app frequently crashes while I am taking notes, resulting in notes not being saved. I often find myself rewriting notes that I had just written prior to the app crashing. In addition the app is constantly glitching - I will try to write something with my Apple pen and it takes a good minute before I can produce any sort of ink on paper. I also have issues copying and pasting images onto First Aid from outside resources. And as of most recently, I can no longer search keywords on first aid, which completely defeats the purpose of having a pdf copy of First Aid. I have reached out to Notability by submitting a request of my current issues and have not heard back from them. Unfortunately I cannot contact them via phone and thus I am extremely frustrated with the lack of accessibility and availability to receive any sort of help. Do yourself a favor and do not download this app. I have been informed by my colleagues that OneNote is significantly better and i wish I had known this prior to using notability.Version: 9.1.3
Amazing Tool for College StudentsI’m a sophomore engineering student, and I probably spent at least five hours a day on this app between lecture notes, studying, and doing homework. Paired with an iPad and Apple Pencil, it’s an amazing way to stay organized and keep all your notes in one place without having to bring notebooks, binders, or pencils with you.
This app is great for taking notes and making study guides because you can change the pen color and thickness, add images or GIFs, highlight, etc. I download, read, and highlight scientific papers, articles, and assignments as PDFs, and I do math and engineering homework on the blank or graph paper settings where it’s super easy to erase or move things around. I also have my notes and homework from past semesters with me all the time to refer back to or to help friends taking those classes.
All in all, this app has made my college experience so much more organized, efficient, and fun and I highly recommend it for anyone taking classes, especially ones involving a lot of diagrams and calculations..Version: 9.1.4
Getting me through college - WITH AN iPAD!!First off, kudos for making a KILLER APP! I started school last semester dumping tons of money into a new computer but little did I know that this gem of an app would make my iPad pro the ONLY device that I need. I have the keyboard for typing, the pencil for writing and with the latest update I can’t wait to try the handwriting recognition! I must say, the best $10 i’ve ever spent on an app, HANDS DOWN! After starting college as an adult, 15 years after high school I had no idea i’d be able to carry a lightweight iPad and just a couple of accessories to do all that I need. My handwritten notes look so good on this app that my classmates ask me to email my notes to them and recording the lectures has made reviewing so easy with my busy schedule. I’ve tried them all and trust me, this app is truly the killer note-taking solution. Just buy it, you won’t regret it. Overall very stable, excellent backup options and i’m telling you the handwriting looks so good and the built-in recording just makes it a must. DO IT!!.Version: 8.0
Good but ehWith the price tag like this for an app I expected more. It’s buggy at times with the apple pencil and doesn’t have as many features as I would have liked. You pay 9$ for an app and then you have to pay for themes which is dumb. Oh and theres no account where all your stuff is saved in case something happens so you have to back everything up all the time, for an app like this where all your important notes are I would think OBVIOUSLY theres a login account where your stuff is saved but there isn’t. If for some reason the app gets deleted and you didn’t back up your stuff, it’s gone for good. Another thing that’s annoying for me in particular is i write with my paper slanted and sometimes turning my whole ipad back and forth when i’m getting work done gets annoying so just tilting the paper in the app would be so much easier. Lastly, there should be an option to switch the eraser so that you can erase just part of something instead of the whole thing.
Besides these issues i use it everyday for school and it gets the job done and organizes everything nicely.Version: 10.1.2
Good jobThe new update knocked it out of the park. The team listens to the users and this is the best app ever..Version: 9.2
Best note taking appPleaseee get back to the previous UI. This one is small and not beautiful.
Awesome app. Would you please add ruler, triangle, and protractor? Or just a ruler that shows the angle too. Something like what MS OneNote has. This will be a great feature for this awesome app. Thank you :)
Finally some important issues were addresses. Thank you.
Now you deserve 5 stars.
This is an old comment:
I left this comment Zillion years ago! And nothing has changed!
The horizontal pagination is so important. It can make this app a very professional ebook/pdf reader.
And please integrate it with iCloud, so you can have access the files on icloud. Now we just able to make a backup on icloud.
Everything is perfect, but would you please add a horizontal single-page pagination like other pdf annotators. It's very difficult to read big pdf files this way. Would you please also add a scroll button/bar to scroll fast through the file?
Also, it would be great if the tool bar becomes hidden if you tap the screen.
Thank you :).Version: 10.2.4
Some bugs need to be fixed!First of all, I really like this app and recommend it to anyone who wishes to take notes for classes/work/etc. I no longer need to print out lecture slides for my classes and save a lot of paper.
However, I do have couple of suggestions to improve the app and I hope the developers take this into consideration:
(1) Make imported images moveable like the text! I noticed that once you import an image and edit it the first time, you cannot go back to edit it for the second, third, or fourth time. I am constantly editing my notes to study and not being able to move around the image when I come to study the next day is frustrating.
(2) There’s also a scrolling problem I face daily as I use the app to take notes in class using an apple pencil. The page gets stuck and I can no longer scroll up or down and have to restart the app to get it to work again. It’s a minor bug but it can be frustrating when it happens while I am in a hurry to copy down notes in class.
Thank you..Version: 7.0
Split Screen the same noteLove the app, would love the ability to open 2 pages of the same note on split screen. This would really improve my workflow rather than scrolling back and forth between two pages from the same note.
Very usefulAllows you to follow along with the teacher with synchronized recording of the session to what you write down. however i really wish there were different viewing options like 4 slides in one page or face to face and not only continuous downward flowing pages. I have a problem writing notes in this app. i download PowerPoint lectures and i dont have enough room on each slide to write my notes and i keep find myself adding new pages after each slide to write it the teachers notes. I wish there was a blank paper adjacent to all the imported slides to give me a place to take notes freely. Please developers i hope this gets noticed..Version: 8.4.2
Very good but missing convenienceI use it for notes all the time but I’d really love a two finger tap to undo and three finger tap to redo instead of the tiny little button up top.Version: 8.2.8
ReviewThis new update is trash. It’s hard to write in the box. I have to keep tapping in the box.Version: 9.3.2
GOOD NOTE TAKING APPIt is a good note taking app but I couldn't find a feature that I need and it is opening a pdf file without importing. I have some pdf files that I want tobread and write on them on different apps. But using Notability it import the pdf files and my writings are not visible to other apps unless I share them. So opening pdf files without importing them is a good feature to have in this app..Version: 10.1.5
THIS APP HAS GIVEN ME ANGER MANAGMENT ISSUES LOLThe times I’ve wanted to throw my I pad because of all the glitching is insane and had to redo all my work, drawings and annotations. However despite that, when I look past the times I want to punch the screen, I enjoy looking at the capability this app allows for the creation of my aesthetically pleasing notes. Tbh if u get the urge to throw things a lot don’t get this app lol..Version: 10.0.2
Almost my favourite note taking app...Please add collaboration and I won’t need any other note taking app..Version: 9.3.3
Best app everI use it everyday for school and it saves me so much time and energy! I love it! 10/10 would recommend..Version: 8.4.5
Needs more layers of organizationPlease have ways to create subfolders or dividers within dividers..Version: 9.3.2
OrganizationHi pls let us add a few more layers of organization, it’s so frustrating that I can’t make more folders within the class notes folder..Version: 9.2.4
Great app but can be better!The app is great but I’m considering switching to GoodNotes. In many ways notability out shines good notes which is why I’m torn between both apps.
Notability has been glitching when it comes to moving selected written texts around. All my writing disappears, only the shapes remains and would require me to reselect the text and move it around for the writing to reappear and even then, parts of the selected text would overlap other parts making it impossible to read and would require me to rewrite it. The undo button does not fix the disappearing text nor does it fix the overlapping text. Also, Notability has also been glitching when writing with the Apple pen. Mid writing it stops recognizing the Apple pen and stops writing. It is very frustrating!
Being a university student, all my lecture notes and assignments are done using notability. The main reason why I’m considering switching to GoodNotes are the following:
- Highlighter - It is extremely frustrating when the highlighter goes over the text/writing whereas in GoodNotes, the highlighter goes behind the text/writing making it pop.
- Eraser - although notability introduced the partial eraser which was a great improvement. GoodNotes has the auto-deselect eraser which is very useful when you’re rushing to write down important comments the prof says. GoodNotes also has the option to erase the highlighter only!.Version: 9.1.8
I am takin one star off for lack of horizontal modeYou have made an excellent app. Brilliant in terms of ease of writing and drawing simultaneously. But why no horizontal mode. This irritates users like me no end..Version: 9.1.8
A potential feature requestHey love the app.
Would love to see a way to have a sub selection of the colour swatches pinned to the top of the icons navbar.
This would help a ton when I’m trying to colour code my notes!
IndispensableDe toutes les applications que j’utilise c’est la plus importante. La combinaison presque parfaite d’annotations et photos. Un calepin de notes de travail en version haute performance.
Je suis entrepreneur général, c’est l’outil parfait. Un fichier par client, annotation de plans, de photos, croquis…
À chaque mise à jour majeure je suis épaté.
Bravo et merci!.Version: 10.4.3
Everything you need as a student!Notability is an excellent note-taking app (I hope they contact me for royalties lol). I’m in medical school and this app has all the functionality I could possibly want. I tried OneNote initially because I had a PC and the app was free but had too many struggles and fights with the software. Notability is worth the investment as it allows you to import lecture slides and write directly on the slides (or off to the side if that’s your fancy!). You can search your own hand-written notes (wut.). You can record lectures, with permission of course, and I believe it will coordinate with the notes you were taking at the time. This app has really helped me organize my notes and studying over 2 years of medical school. The only caveat is that most people will need to purchase more storage if you have a lot of notes. I also recommend getting an Apple Pen (again, Apple, contact me, I accept sponsorship lol) and screen covers that make the screen feel more like paper. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with this app..Version: 10.4.2
EaseEase of use. Ease of organization. Ease of pulling up any note anytime anywhere..Version: 10.4.2
No split screen feature??So on the notes app for apple, you can work on more than one note at the same time.
I think you should have at least a feature of opening it like a book if you can’t split screen..Version: 10.4.2
Seriously worth itWe had to buy this app for school and it’s so useful it keeps my things organize and all updates are nice..Version: 10.4.2
Best school appUse it everyday, recent updates and store have been great. Love it.Version: 10.4.2
Could use some features but otherwise goodI like the app a lot, and use it constantly but if there’s one thing that will make me switch to goodnote, it’s the fact that goodnote has built in flash cards to practise and test yourself, and it has the ability to add bookmarks to your files. If notability had that I would never need another app!.Version: 10.4.2
Love itLove it. It’s like a magic notebook..Version: 10.4.2
Awesome for note takingThis app is wonderful. I really enjoy using it.
Would love a simple fill option. I love decorating my notes - bullet journal styles - but if I want to make headings and fill them in with certain colour the struggle is real! If their was a fill option that colours a certain area in that would be amazing!
If their is and I’m just blind please let me know 😅.Version: 10.4.2
Pen Tool Markup IssuesSince last update (May, 2021) small edits made to PDFs, such as commas & minor markings in the text won’t always stay on the document as written. They’ll be written, but won’t remain on the document. This wasn't happening before the update. It needs to be FIXED, please..Version: 10.4.2
Value for moneyGreat app for note taking. Love the audio recording feature..Version: 10.4.1
Great but hates capital lettersThere is nothing I can do to get my letters in a title to be capitalized unless I use the keyboard, other than that I love the app!.Version: 10.4.2
Why so big?Great app, but has a flaw that is really ruining it for me. Seems to inflate the pdf file quite a lot. My 8 meg pdf turns into 50meg after some markup and then I can't email it. Will have to find something else..Version: 10.4.1
Automatic uploadI just bought the app and I notice the pdf downloaded from online drive needs to be uploaded manually once the editing is finished. Why not make it automatically upload as your competitors? It is more convenient that way..Version: 10.4.1
Options to hide some pagesI'm a students and its really worth it for taking notes. I just hope soon there will be an option to hide some pages in notes. In my experience there are some notes that aren't that much useful but i don't want to delete it cause it might be useful someday. When reviewing my notes it makes it organize if some pages are hidden. Thanks.Version: 10.4.1
Superbe application. Une SuggestionIl serait pratique d’avoir (à côté de modifier), un bouton "X" ou "fermer" qui permettrait de fermer d’un seul coup tous les SÉPARATEURS qui ont été ouverts. Lorsqu’on a beaucoup de séparateurs contenant beaucoup de dossiers, un tel bouton permettrait d’ACCÉLÉRER la recherche d’un dossier précis sans avoir au préalable à fermer un à un tous des séparateurs restés diminuant d’autant la Vision d’Ensemble de nos séparateurs..Version: 10.4
Amazing app!!Notability is the perfect app for work or study, it’s easy to use and it’s made for maximum productivity. Using the app almost everyday of my life, I have a few suggestions on how to make it even better than it already is on the next update:
- A function to be able to make folders within each subject to make my notes even more organised and specific for example within the divider for physiology I have a subject for endocrinology, however since this subject is big, smaller folders within the subject will help me organise and help find my notes faster
- A function to combine separate handwritten documents.Version: 10.4
Problem with icloudUsed to really like notability, but recently I’ve been running into problems when i try to sync my notes with icloud. Whenever i turn it on, the app becomes irresponsive and crashes. Had to export all my old notes and switch to a different note taking app. It’s very frustrating!.Version: 10.4
