Customer Reviews

Reliable & Quick

A great note taking app, very reliable. The iCloud sync/backup is very quick, so that your notes appear on your other devices within a minute or two. The organisation of the folders & notes make it very easy to access, and because it's a one off payment you don't get pestered to upgrade all the time. I've become very reliant on this app to manage my van stock and to record those easily forgettable procedures over time.
I'm a big fan of notesplus, but if you need to see your notes on an iPhone & Mac as well as your iPad, this is the app for you.
Highly recommend.

The Only Note-Taking App I Use

I love Notability. Its versatility is fantastic, especially for a note-taking app.

I use Notability on the iPad Pro, and really enjoy jotting my notes down by hand, sketching ideas, and having the freedom to edit the document as I see fit (moving content around, cutting out parts and enlarging areas ... the interface is clean and easy to use). The way you can switch between the Pencil and keyboard is fluid and flawless.

I also dig it as a PDF viewer. I try to limit the number of apps I have downloaded, so having a note app that doubles as a PDF viewer and editor is perfect, and negates the need to double up on programmes.

Thank you for an awesome app!

The best so far. I tried all the other apps

This is by far the best note taking app. No uploading, converting or hanging issues like the stupid Noteshelf. No cutting edges of slides like GoodNotes. And backup with any file-hosting service. The search tool is incredible. The team is always updating the app and very responsive. Full rating ...... keep it up
