Customer Reviews

Great - Please improve exporting

Keep up the good work!

This app is so fantastic in so many ways an has so much potential. Kudos to the developers for their creativity. It's unlike anything I've seen so I hope to use it....someday (see below). They just added the ability to free-style draw and write by hand (using pencil) which is great.

The problem is the limitation in the export options, so if you want to ensure access to work off your iPad, you face limitations. There's no desktop version, so you have to export to PDF or Word format, and the exported version does not retain everything from the app version (like two-way linking between the workspace and doc annotations). The formatting is a bit strange in both Word and PDF. It’s certainly not in a format you would be able to share with anyone else. Random phrases like “Object Group” appear, and words can get cut off in the PDF export. So you can't share your annotations with anyone in a useful (much less visually pleasing) way, especially if you rely on the app's awesome advanced features (and if you don't use those features, then the app isn't anything special).

Also, there are easy functions they could add to export but they haven't done so. E.g., you can have your exported PDF workplace annotations link to the proper place in the document in your PDF, but the link is not two-way, and it creates an odd gray-highlight space in the document. (If you use the app, you'll know what i mean.)

App crashes when trying to upload pdf file

I got liquid text to work on pdf files stored on various cloud storage. While working with in the app is great and love the means of highlighting and adding notes to the file, the fact that the app crashes multiple times when I try to upload the file as pdf to cloud storage disk makes it unusable. Also got no response from their help team when I tried to contact them through their in app chat.

Writing with Apple Pencil is not good

Is not possible drag and drop to the others apps.
Don’t worth the price.

When exporting the annotations to another app or sending by email, the gray margins is so ugly. Not clean to future annotations review.

When I'm writing with Apple Pencil and do zoom in, you see how horrible annotations are been.
When you're increasing the resolution with two fingers you realize how blurry.

Not possible to import multiple files from the networks clouds, just one by one.
It's hard to manage the workspace, columns and lines, that not a Common notebook. The user should choose the paper or how will be the workspace, but don't has that option, just a big Blue Space and Big mess when you try to review what was exported.
