I would suggest partnering with Notability, or making a lot of changes….

so we can use apple pencil and its more of a “lab notebook” feel writing on my iPad. This would save you the hassle of creating the writing functions and such, but Notability has almost perfected them. And you guys could bring the scientific organization part to integrate. I honestly know a lot of people that would love a hybrid of HiveBench and Notability…those of us that are scientific researchers or clinical researchers, etc. Thanks, please take this into consideration, it will greatly help your app on ipads… but still able to use on computer… basically like a live cloud if using both at same time. For instance uploading pics via my Mac from microscopy, and writing conclusion with my Apple Pencil on my iPad Pro….on the same document. Realy Time clouding….. also know as the “Internet of Things” (IoT). :). Thank you!
