Customer Reviews

Good support

I had some syncing issues with a previous update. There was excellent support from the notability staff and they helped me resolve my problem, so far. There still seems to be some trouble in syncing with the Mac version. My advice for users is to make sure you set the app to back up to one of the third party servers like Dropbox or google drive in addition to syncing to the cloud. This way if you ever have a syncing issue with the app, you will still have a PDF backup copy. It saved my bacon last month when my years worth of college notes were suddenly gone.

More about the app...i have loved the interface if the app. Importing files is slick once you figure it out. If the file is a PDF that you import it usually is text searchable. This is great for importing PDF versions of lecture notes that you want to search later. I use this app for so many things. I hope the developers continue to support unlike they have.

5 stars if the syncing with the Mac version worked better.

Excellent app

I am impressed with the apps functionality, flexibility and ease of use.
I am using it for notes for a short story I am writing. Using the outline function, I was able to draft an outline for the story amazingly quickly, and revisions are a snap. Each chapter has its own divider in which I include additional notes and even reference photos. Rearranging chapters is as easy as changing the order of the dividers, and moving a note from one divider to another is a simple matter of drag-and-drop. Collapsing folders reduces clutter and makes it easy to navigate the story. I have ready access to all 20 chapters. Wherever I am, I can pull out my iPhone and add a note to the appropriate chapter immediately. I never have a "Now what was that idea I had an hour ago?" situation arise. This is a great tool.

Love! Just needs a few tweaks..

With the latest update, it has caused the app to be super glitchy. The notes I type will be all over the place, and blocks of the screen will be black. Please fix soon! It's really complicating my research and study.

I use Notability mostly for note taking, but I also use it to study books and to record research. iBooks has always frustrated me because you can't make notes in the margins, you can only put them in little post it notes. With notability I can transfer over a pdf version and type actual text notes in the wide margins. I love that you can highlight at ease, would be great if you could add some more colors to pick from. Great app, keep up the good work!
