All Round Note Taking App - Use It Every Day!

Noteshelf totally caters to all my note taking and professional needs. It is the most feature rich and versatile app i have ever come across in the entire app store. And, possibly the function that makes this app clearly stand out from the crowd of other note taking apps is its smooth handwriting and beautiful and easy user interface. And i love the Personalisation options it offers too. Starting from the custom papers and covers, importing options, text entry, multiple orientation presets, selectable writing styles, various shelf themes and the biggies like wrist protection, zoom mode, multiple export and backup options---to the latest audio recording, shapes tool & photo editing options……you name it, they have it!!! They also have an extensive knowledge base in their support portal and real time support to users. Added to all this is the considerate Developers who have been very thoughtful of counting in votes from users and working on making the most requested feature a reality! Thank you guys! Way to go!

Great note taking app

I got this app because I started a bachelors program and I did not want to carry around many notebooks and I didn't want to waste paper. I love this app it is compatible with many different styli (I use pencil by 53). I love that I can chose different kinds of paper to suit my writing needs. The magnifying option makes it easy to write smaller print in the notebooks. It also has a great selection of writing tools and the highlighter really make marking important information easy. Overall I love this app. Also a great feature is the ability to make backups of either the individual notebooks or of your whole notebook databas, and transfer them to another iPad/iPhone. This came in handy a few days ago when I upgraded from an iPad mini to an iPad Air 2.

Some suggestions for the developers: please bring search for handwritten notes, I know some of your competitors provide this feature. Second, I would love it if this app supported split screen so I could take notes while reading my class books.

Recent updates made it terrible

Is there a way to revert back to a version prior to the last 2 updates? I used to love this app but now I hate it. I have an adonit jot touch which used to make writing so easy and beautiful but now the palm rejection doesn't work, I don't have the option to turn off pressure sensitivity, the options to assign commands to the long press is gone, the pen keeps disconnecting, there are lines and scribbles all over the page, the pen jumps around from where the point is placed. Since the updates I just used this app so much less because it takes me forever to write anything between erasing stray scribbles, reconnecting the pen, and erasing and rewriting garbled words. I bought this app after a trial where I loved it, but now they've changed it and it just doesn't work for me. It's really a shame.
