We rely on this sleek, powerful note-taker to annotate documents, record lectures, sketch illustrations, and more. With built-in iCloud support, it’s perfect for keeping notes, documents, and doodles up to date on both iPhone and iPad.

Initially fantastic app now rendered useless

Emily-Roseee

I adored everything about this app and it had become the only app I used for note-taking. Excellent features, great handwriting feel (far superior to Notes app) and the recording feature is so useful in so many work/study contexts. HOWEVER, a few updates ago, the iCloud backup feature made the app need to re-download EVERY note each time I re-enter the app. You cannot open the note while re-downloading and this can take anywhere from 2-10 minutes (no exaggeration, and the app must be open to do so)! This means I can never quickly access my notes! Quickly switching in and out of the app within minutes, even with Background App Refresh disabled, causes everything to re-download. Extremely frustrating; particularly at work when important information is in a past note and I’m forced to idly wait and make others wait until I can access it. I need to access my notes across devices but turning off iCloud is the only impracticable option. This has rendered the app useless to me now. GINGER LABS, PLEASE FIX THIS ERROR! 🙏🏽

The best

sam_e_1984

I’ve tried so many note taking apps, and this is by far the best! Ive been using this for years now, and every now and then I download another app to try it out, but none of them can compete. Not only do I use this daily as a note taking app with my Apple Pencil, but I use it to save and sort any important paperwork. I’ve got tabs for receipts, tabs for registration paperwork, and tabs for recipes. Whenever I need something in a hurry I can find it in two seconds. I could not work without this app. In fact it’s the only reason I keep buying iPhones instead of switching to Samsung.
