Fix this bug pls

I love using this app to take notes by hand on my ipad when I need to. The only issue that I have is that whenever I go into a note and then I exit out of it, the screen where all of my notes are goes black and I can't see or select anything. The only way that I can get it back to normal is by closing it in my multitasking bar and then reopening it again. Could you please fix this? If I could give this app 4.5 stars I would but the only reason why I gave it four was because of this bug. Thanks

Get it right for once! If you're going to pretend to have a writing app, then figure out a way to allow people to rest their hands on the "page"! Otherwise, don't bother!

This is no way the most capable or elegant solution to the problem of how to write on he IPad screen. Unfortunately, it is very limited. If you're looking to use this as any reasonable replacement for a paper note and a surface on which you can rest your hand while writing, forget it!

Another roughly two bucks down the drain! When will I learn!

Frustrated disappointed writer who learned to write on paper first...

Concept good, work needed

I bought this because it appeared that it had the writing capabilities of Penultimate or Noteshelf, combined with text. However, I cannot use this for handwriting because it has no palm rest capabilities. I am giving a 3 star rating in hope that it will correct this deficiency soon.

Otherwise, there is another waste of $2.00.
