Customer Reviews

Awesome app for work and personal use

£1.99 is an absolute steal for this app - it has revolutionise the way I work! Do away with loads of paper files and your notebook at work, plus save all the personal documents you need at your finger tips. With iCloud syncing there is no danger of losing your docs either. Its really useful for students too as in addition to note taking and annotating presentations, there is a facility to record sound i.e. lectures. By far the best notes app out there. Well done Notability!


Best app in its class by far, this has turned out to be an extremely expensive purchase for me, having just purchased an iPad pro and an apple pencil exclusively for this functionality. Wish they would allow you to play animations inside notes, or retain links from power points, but those are just some minor niggles. Thank you so much to the developers of this app! ✌

5 Stars for Functionality

I’ve Given this App 5 Stars albeit it has a few shortfalls.
The iCloud sync feature works very well.
The GUI Font on the MAC, is a little small but it doesn’t distract you from Notabilities functionality.
The GUI on the iPhone & iPad could do with loosing Thumbnail View as it dominates the small screen but again the functionality is good.
No overall APP Password protection, though you can set Individual File Passwords.
Backup can be set to Dropbox & Google Drive in the form of Notes or PDFs
WARNING if you set File Passwords the Backup will not be password protected

Good replacement for Onenote or Evernote.
This program has lots of Development Potential.
