Insight Notes simply & intuitively provides HIPAA-compliant & encrypted note-taking for therapists & other health professionals.

Designed to meet the needs of fee-for-service professionals, Insight Notes automatically organizes your notes on a per-client or per-project basis. You can quickly & easily see all of your notes at a glance.

To facilitate legal/HIPAA compliance, secure backup & encrypted exporting of notes occurs via our remote servers, which are available for a low monthly fee. New subscribers receive a 30-day free trial. If you don't want or need this service, you can always print out your notes via AirPrint.



- Use the onscreen iPad keyboard, an external keyboard, or dictate your notes.
- Use a stylus or your finger to draw & write. Apple Pencil works perfectly!
- Use the iPad camera to scan a page into your notes.

Save headings & text for frequently-used notes. Or, save images of forms and checklists as custom templates, and write/draw on them as-needed.

Organized the way you work: by date, & within client/project folders.

All records are AES-256 encrypted. Records stored on the remote backup server are encrypted, too. No one has access to your records in unencrypted format.

Insight Notes allows the simultaneous exporting of multiple files in PDF format, viewable on any computer or device. You aren't tied to a Mac or PC.

(Sorry - no external PDF importing
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

Subscribers: if you lose your iPad you don't lose your notes.

Users who subscribe to the backup & encrypted exporting service automatically have an agreement that meets HIPAA requirements.

Your records are stored & encrypted on your iPad.

Subscribers: simply select notes from within your records. Insight Notes organizes & securely delivers your records to whomever you wish.

When you elect to "complete" a note, the contents are automatically imported onto letterhead with your signature & contact information.

What's New

Version 1.5.6

Dear Colleagues,

1.5.6 is a patch release that fixes an exporting bug.

We now have support for TouchID, Apple Pencil, and a new drawing/writing experience for everyone!

Our newest version of Insight Notes features big improvements for users who write/draw their notes*, and for all users who want to capture forms and fill them in on-screen:

- If you draw/write on-screen you can now choose three different pen tip widths, as well as a choice of black, blue, or red ink.

- Your pen strokes are now smoother than ever before.

- We now support Apple Pencil, which means that iPad Pro users who have an Apple Pencil will see that on-screen writing is akin to writing on a real piece of paper. Your Apple Pencil will record the smallest pen strokes and will respond to changes in pressure. In short: it really works.

- This also means that there are significant improvements to your ability to use the custom drawing templates feature. You can use your iPad's rear-facing camera to capture an image of a form and save it as a template for future use. After you have done that you can call up that form for use with any of your clients and fill it out on-screen. If you have an Apple Pencil you can fill out detailed checklists. Your iPad now works as a digital clipboard.

- TouchID is now supported, too. If you have an iPad Pro you can implement TouchID for 72-hours at a stretch. (We still require you to re-enter your encryption code every 72-hours, so please don't forget your encryption code.)

Please remember that if you are a backup subscriber we encourage you to use the encrypted exporting service to export your notes database to yourself. You can do so as often as you wish and we encourage you to do so on a regular basis. Redundancy is a very good thing.

As always, we value your feedback. In fact, we pour over each email we receive to see how we can better support your clinical work. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email us directly at insightnotesapp@gmail.com.

We respond to each and every email, and we do so as quickly as possible. Email is the best way to give feedback because app reviews take a while to appear and we have no way to respond to app store reviews. We will continue to do everything possible to address your concerns and fix bugs as we become aware of them. We deeply appreciate your support.

If you want to leave us a positive review it really helps; we have a little celebration every time we get a nice review. More importantly, it helps other colleagues who are curious if Insight Notes can facilitate their work, too.

Kind regards from all of us at Insight Notes.

*A special thank you and recognition goes to the good people at Milestone Made, creators of Loose Leaf for iPad, for their assistance incorporating the powerful JotUI drawing engine. They couldn't have been more skilled, helpful or courteous. Thanks!

Ratings and Reviews

Great Potential


I believe this app has great potential but for those of us that are a little more tech savvy it is really crucial to have an option to upload templates from our computers/tablets. I have a very specific progress note template I want to use that I can print out an scan a copy in but it would be so much easier if I could just upload it directly. Please think about adding this feature! :)

No support


I have been using InsightNotes for about two months now and basically like this very simple program. Recently I have sent several questions through email to their support team and do not seem to be able to get a response. If you buy this app please be aware that the support is very poor.

Worthwhile and saves time


Updating my previous review: Before I started using Insight Notes I was using a hodgepodge of apps and word processing programs. I switched to this app and I haven't looked back since. It's also one of the cheapest HIPAA compliant backups I've seen.

Quite honestly, the most difficult thing for me was deciding whether or not to get the backup subscription. This turned out to be an easy call because it reduced all of my backups to a single button. Before this I was doing my backups piecemeal and it took a lot longer. The amount of time I save is a lot more valuable than the subscription fee, which is practically nothing in the grand scheme of things. Once you get used to hitting one button it's hard to go back to what I was doing before, which was navigating through different file directories and saving to individual client folders.

The custom templates feature is very helpful. I have some notes I frequently write, which tend to be similar, so I made some templates with the basics pre-filled and that has also been a huge help.

I export my entire notes database to myself on a weekly basis. I like having a copy of my notes at home, too. The app makes it very easy to do that. I can export about 600 different notes in 2 different batches. This takes less than three minutes and I like having another copy in my own backup just in case. For my practice this app has been extremely helpful. Highly recommended.
