Write, Type, Record Audio - pinpointing critical items with Flags, Import PDFs, add and take Photos, Share to Dropbox and Evernote and keep it all beautifully organized. With CaptureNotes 2, you'll CAPTURE EVERYTHING in your meetings or lectures.

CaptureNotes 2 lets you take your notes, your way. Select the paper style, font, pen size and color. Audio recording allows you to make the most of the audio portions of your lecture. Take photos with your iPad or import photos from your iPad photo library.

Get to the point by placing FLAGS to cross-reference and review later. Use any number of pre-designed or custom flags to drop wherever you want to make a special note. FLAGS are TIME-SYNCED to that point of the audio as your take your notes! FILTER FLAGS allows you to go back and find all notes and audio recording that correlate to your dropped flags, making your review time as fast and efficient as possible!

With the release of V2.0, CaptureNotes 2 becomes a sharing powerhouse... Users can share Binders and Notebooks via Email, Evernote, iTunes or Dropbox.  All elements captured within any Notebook can be shared -- audio, typing, drawing, photos, Flags, PDF imports, etc. A shared Notebook can be viewed by any other user of CaptureNotes 2, V2.0 exactly as you have created them.

We have implemented a PIN based security locking system, that operates on the App or Binder level. You can set CaptureNotes 2 to require a PIN each time it enters the foreground (App Lock), or require the PIN only on specific Binders.

CaptureNotes 2 supports importing PDFs from Dropbox, Evernote and Open In… You can take notes directly on imported PDFs, use the Highlighter as you would on paper and enjoy the benefit of being able to place Flags on the PDFs to link the audio recording! Any Notebook can be uploaded directly to Evernote for storage, reviewed off the iPad and even shared with your team or classmates.

Your notes are managed in elegant, customized notebooks and binders, with thumbnail views for easy navigation. Sort by name, date or manually--whichever suits your needs. Notebook in the wrong Binder? No problem—it’s simple to move it to the proper Binder.

With the new Search Tool you can quickly locate a Notebook by Keywords, Flags and Dates. Any typed words in your Notebook will be found, as well as Notebook Names, Subtitles and Keyword Notes. You'll be presented with a graphical presentation of the Notebook with a smaller Binder to easily differentiate on more common searches. You can even search for a specific Flag type, and easily turn on and off Filters to narrow or broaden your search.

This is a fantastic new addition to CaptureNotes 2... At any point in a Notebook you can insert a Template-formatted single page, or have the Template style repeated for the remainder of the Notebook. We've started out with 5 Template styles well suited for professionals and students alike. The Templates maintain the page color style, while applying organizational format, and they are simple to insert from the Page Style Tool.

Dropbox and iTunes for are available for easy, secure storage of all your Notebooks and Binders.

Ratings and Reviews

A Winning App!


I was delighted to download the new version and find that a potentially disastrous glitch had been fixed, exactly as the developer said it would be. In the previous version the text box had a bad, bad habit of changing it's sizing arbitrarily. For example, enter a short paragraph and all of a sudden the app changes the size of the box to two characters in width. That change was unfixable; so, begin again. Scott said they were fixing it..and they have! Now the user can manipulate the text box by a dragger "?" tab in the corner of the box.

The idea of the Flag is absolutely brilliant. The instant you have the thought that you need to hear again what the speaker just said simply touch a flag, drag it to the page and let go of it. Worry later about putting a text box near it to describe in a few words what the Flag is referring to.

Those two features alone make the app a real winner. Kudos to the development team! Will likely change my rating to 5 when I have a chance to check some of the other features.

Has potential but...

I REALLY want to love this app... It has so many great features...
- The ability to take a picture and insert it into the notebook
- Audio recording
- Flags for coming back to information later
- The organization of binders and notebooks
- Import PDFs
- Sync with dropbox and evernote

BUT... I really, really would love the ability to tag my notes. I'm using this program for my doctorate degree (and have recommended it to others) - but there is no ability to "tag" notes (ie: statistics notebook chapter 1 contains the subjects.....) and tag the subjects in the notebook. The flags just CANNOT substitute for tags...

- The app randomly closes unexpectedly -- OR -- it will not allow me to double click for the keyboard
- When I'm typing and reach the end of the page it throws me onto a new page and often messes up the text on the previous page. I've also had trouble moving around text (if you get too close to the top if add a page and moves your text).

A scroll bar on the side of the page would be amazing. The two finger scrolling just doesn't work... I either end up writing with the pen, scrolling and stopping randomly, or not scrolling at all. Plus, the two finger scroll gets confusing with the one finger scroll of the regular iOS system.

Just a few frustrating things that are keeping this app from being a top notebook pick.

Good but not everything I was looking for...


I bought this app for college and was really excited to use it. I was really excited about the fact that it had integration into Evernote. I started using the app I had a moment of love for the app. I now however have gotten over my infatuation with the app. I've had the app crash on me a few times in class while I was taking notes. Sometimes I have trouble getting binders or notebooks to open. But what is really lacking here is the Evernote component. Documents come to Evernote in this strange .cnbk file form that Evernote can't read or open. Why even bother integrating with Evernote if you can't open the file form in Evernote. So what I thought was going to be an awesome note taking app has kinda turned into a disaster. I will now have to spend my saturday transcribing my notes from here into Evernote.

-Records Lectures/Meetings even in the background (AWESOME!! This means you can quick check your email. look up something on the web etc. etc.)
-Flags bring up the exact moment in the recording
- Incorporates Photos, Hand Written notes and Typed notes

-Evernote Integration not as good as it should be
-Navigation between handwritten notes, typed notes, and photos can be clunky and slow
-Flags only point one way
-Crashes on Occasion.
