Disappointed: Used it for four years and it’s not getting better


I’ve been using this as a main note-taking app for four full years and it’s just keep getting more and more unstable. I can’t open a file which contains my notes for the whole semester only because I tried to delete one blank page in this file. Other bugs include turning multiple pages when press the button for next page just one time, and other routine crushes. I’ve been tolerating these minor crushes for almost dozens of updates by now, but I will not continue tolerating. Considering switching to other apps which doesn’t have such SERIOUS problems if you don’t make it better.

Frustrated again now photos don’t work


Now I can’t insert photos at all which makes this unusable. Time to switch. Such a shame because before they abandoned this product it was cutting edge and great.

Old frustrated review
I was asked to review again, so.... It didn't convert all old files so they're usable. It's less intuitive. I insert pictures into documents and they can't be seen when reopening. So frustrating. I don't see much that's better. But still works for straight writing, although it's always in a mode where I can't just add to the document. I've learned, but didn't have these problems before. If I could, I'd go back to earlier version.

Work lost

Cardiovascular pulse 123

Look, i love Upad id say is definitely better than other note apps, now I started to study the Bible in Pdf format thru upad and write in the margines what Ive learned from the scriptures i read, but i just los my Bible where i had all my notes. I don't know what happened sometimes I see it and i go to press on it, poof is gone, it disappears. Is there anything you guys can do to prevent this from happening again and get me my Bible back please!!!! Thank you il go up to a 5 star if gets fixed.
