Its is the best

Mr E P

It has replaced paper and books for me, as a university student. Seamless dropbox integration.
Also works great as a pdf editor

- filing system instead of bookshelf or at least use the first item of the group as the cover icon (not the last)

- the same colours used everywhere, that is covers, bands, and groups.

- same colours for all covers. Simple and journal are different.

- the ability to upload to dropbox from the front screen as a pdf rather than as a notebook

- erase stamps, either has a whole or partial, using the eraser tool

- Custom stamps, or the ability to import own

- Bring back the Store/ Shop Option to the settings (how do I get different papers / covers)

- Make the tags equivalent to bookmarks in other (Foxit Reader) PDF Programs

- When pasting in a picture (particularly from the camera) be able to rotate it, I am sure this was an option in previous releases

Best note taking and journal app


I have tried a few apps which would allow me to both type and hand write notes, but fell short, especially when it came to writing. Noteshelf has a few options for writing and
I love the italic nib. They also got back to me straightaway when I had a question. The only thing missing is being able to copy journal pages to another document, which I think will be available soon.

The only thing missing is an OCR


I've tried many note-taking apps and this is by far the best, except: hand written notes are not searchable. Searching my notes is really the main reason I write notes on my iPad Pro, which means unfortunately I can't use this app and have to use GoodNotes (which has a really good OCR, but is missing many other features that NoteShelf offers).
