Customer Reviews

Very useful

I used this app in my whole semester this year and for the first time I was afraid if I could manage this and leave the old notebooks and my pencilcase at home. It is really fast and really smooth with the apple pencil and I really like the first smart upgrade with the straight line but I really miss these smart gestures for other objects like circles or triangels etc. A bit irritating that if I am on the border of the page and I write something there then viewing the pdf on pc is a bit confusing if you draw there because it cuts what you have drawn there. Please keep up the good work and improvements, make this app useful for every subjects. Thanks and I really recommend this.

Useful and need improvements

I compared some of these kinds of note taking apps and I decided to purchase this one, and I could not be more pleased by my decision. It comes very handy when adding notes on PDFs or signing on return slips. I started to make a-levels notes with it on Mac and it's quite useful. Comparing to Microsoft words, this one provides more flexibility and is especially good for arranging graphs and words. However, when I was doing biology and chemistry notes, I found that it cannot show the subscript and superscript which is ANNOYING, life would be so much easier when they do superscript and subscript...


This is an all round better note taking and recording app in the App Store. I purchased other not taking apps along side this app however after using this as well other notes over the years this app wins.
An issue which I find is a let down is that if you want to add an extra blank sheet to a PDF file to maybe add extra notes as part of your annotation thanks feature isn't available. I like the idea of sticky notes but not good enough. An upgraded version should include the the flexibility to add several pages to PDF documents when needed.
