Ratings and Reviews
I needed a note taking app where I could pull in pictures and web pages and make annotations. This does that and much more. You can hand write stuff, I love the little box that extends to rest your writing hand on the screen without it sensing. You can type for neatness. Draw. Cut copy and paste, also you have a clipboard to save many items to and use again. The communication options are comprehensive PDF, Dropbox, email etc... They provide videos to get you started, the links are built right into the app.
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S FREE. If you like the app I recommend using the in-app purchases for backgrounds and colours we need to keep the updates funded, I feel I will use this app for a long time to come.
I do have a few ideas for future editions: A shape drawing tool, straight line tool and the ability to add working hyperlinks. These would be nice to have, but the app is so workable as it is, I love it it's boosting my work creativity and I'm having fun. Doodle doodle doodle :) No more boring meetings :p
Very Impressive - But A Tad Expensive!
This is a lot different from any of the other apps of this type I have previously purchased. It allows you to create beautiful artwork with a minimum of ease. The floating circular palette tool is very intuitive allowing you to change pen type, style, colour etc literally mid-flow!
The instructions are a little vague, but the built in video files help make up for this. What would have been nice is a simple tour of the interface basics, because although it's easy to paint, write draw and create, some of the icons around the screen interface are not always self evident. A five minute walk through would have been better.
At present, it is a 'free' app, but I'm sure that'll change soon. My one concern is that their appears to be several "In App Purchases" which on the whole are a tad expensive once you've purchased them because they do not last the lifetime of the app, oh no, they run out like real ink, so once they have run dry, you have to buy them all again!
My self, I like to know how much the bottom line is, so in the long run it might not be so 'free' as you think.
But aside from that, the app itself is good, but I would like to see some more universal backup options say Dropbox and iCloud for example.
Give it a try and see for yourself.
It's a really great app. You can take notes of course but I generally use it more for annotating PDFs instead of printing them out first, doing them on paper then scanning. I love the little zoom box thing. It's really useful.
I prefer to use 'send to application' for putting notes in Evernote over the new 'send to Evernote' option, but only because I can send several pages as a PDF and add tags etc..
I just thought I'd add that review because there were apparently no ratings for the new update, so I was a little wary in case there were problems, but I haven't found any.
