The Apple Pencil is so amazing!
Note Always is a notebook app designed for this wonderful device.

- Beautiful and natural handwriting.
- "Circle, Grab, Move" - Featuring startlingly smooth document editing features.
- Powerful support to help cleanly round up and bring out the edges of your writing.

As free and flexible as handwriting, and yet as easy to edit as a word processor.
This innovative app allows for easy revisioning and experimenting with layouts with just a swipe of your Pencil.
Use this app to make drafts for important presentations, to-do lists for meetings, or to store precious memories of raising your child and trips with your family.

◆Main Controls:

- "Circle, Grab, Move":
Use your Pencil to draw a circle around any text you have written, and a palm icon will appear.
Drag this icon to freely move that block of text anywhere you want.

- "Circle, Grab, Shake to Erase":
You can also quickly shake the palm icon to erase the circled section. No need for erasers!

- Three-Finger Swipe to Undo:
Use your middle, ring and pinky fingers to undo writing while still holding the Apple Pencil.

Please try out these 3 features first.
They are specifically designed to allow you to write, move and erase without having to look at the menu, thus always focusing on your work.

Because they are so convenient, you may not want to return to normal paper once you got used to them.

◆Main Features:

- Powerful Writing Support:
Draw a line and tap to enter selection mode, and press the blinking shape button on the left side of the screen.
Using this, you can change your handwriting to a very carefully written style.

- Crop Images, Apply Filters, Frames:
Crop out people from photos with the Scissor, apply vintage filters, and dim frames.
This allows you to easily and cleanly insert pictures into your work.

- Choose and Move with your Fingers:
You can also swipe with your fingers to choose, aside from circling with the Pencil.
This means you can rearrange and adjust layouts to your heart's content.

- Scale, Rotate, Recolor:
When you change the size of the text, the thickness of the lines remain the same, giving the document a very natural look.
You can also change text colors anytime.

- Erase at the Line Unit with Sweeper:
This default eraser allows you to erase precisely without worrying about missing anything.

- Write while Holding your Palette:
You can keep the palette open while writing by pressing on it, and move your finger away to close it. This saves you time when switching colors. You can move the palette anywhere you want.

Other features include zooming, Split View, rearranging pages, exporting to PDF, and saving on the iCloud.

Note Always was created specifically for the Apple Pencil. You can use the app without one, but your writing will be much less smooth and responsive. We ask for your understanding.

Most realistic writing app!

Hooman M.

I really love writing with this app. Realistic pens, smooth, the best papers, good output make it a pleasure. I wonder why the developers do not make this great app better? When you start to use the app continuously, you feel you need more control on categorising notes like a tag system, or some more papers like calendars, meeting notes, planners... (You know what I mean). Another negative point is a rather complexity on adding a paper to your writing session. Also, you can't have a title for your notes. Despite these "minutiae" at last I prefer using this app in a collection of about 12 writing apps on my iPad when I need a rapid and realistic writing time!

Specifically for making notes = most responsive


This is the most responsive note-taking app. It is somehow the most natural to write on this app, as compared to Notability, good notes, noteshelf, note plus.

I use this app specifically to make my own notes and jot down random ideas or doodle, like I would on paper. To me this is a pretty big deal, and justifies this app.

Keep in mind that this app lacks many features. You can not annotate pdf in it. You can not make audio notes etc. Page-turning can probably be improved.

A simple feature unique to this app, which I love the most, is that I can use my finger as an eraser. It also has good pen and colors.

Does NOT work


First of all, it does not accommodate left-handed users. Second, if you even rest your hand on the iPad while writing with the Apple Pencil, the app simply freaks out and every line drawn is jagged and filled with noise. Total waste of money. The Notes app that comes free with the iPad is better.
