Inkspace cloud storage does not work


I have several hundred pages of important notes and sketches on this app. I need to have them backed up and unharmed so I can reload them onto a new iPad. In the top right corner the app offers storage through Inkspace if you sign in. I sign in, it says I can return to the app, so I do and it appears to be backing up. Within 5 seconds it stops randomly and still shows a red “x” on the cloud icon. When I press the icon to redo it I’m completely signed out as if I never tried in the first place. I’ve tried over and over at least a dozen times and it’s the same thing.

If I absolutely have to I’ll go through each notebook and download each of the ~700 pages individually to my photo gallery. It is frustrating to not have a functioning cloud service from a brand that has such a large presence in digital art and communication.

Finally, an easy note taking App

I just found this app at around 3am because I had some epiphanies and wanted to write them down, but not just on paper, I wanted to use my rarely used Apple Pencil. It got it’s work out after all I wrote this morning lol. This App is simple to utilize, make separate notebooks to stay organized, turn them into PDF’s and mail pages etc. Very user friendly compared to likewise Apps that claim they’re easy and make you pay for all the “extra’s,” whereas this one offers a couple of small add ones, they’re worth it just to make the experience of the app preference better...

Great but could use more functionality for serious note-taking


I love this app. The writing is generally responsive and looks natural. I also like the password feature to protect any possibly sensitive information. I take a lot of notes for work, about 7-9 pages per day. It’s a lot and I need to be able to search them relatively quickly. However, you can’t search notes or quickly flip through them. The page turning arrow is annoyingly slow when you have any type of volume. I’d also like to see more subcategories like tabs or groups of books. I have the Bamboo Fineline which is great when paired with the app as well.
