What's New in Version 3.5.30
Improved for iPad and iPhone
Not ready for prime time
If you don't pay very careful attention, it will delete your notes written with a pen or pencil ( not the text tool) without warning. However, in this version if you foolishly write too many notes with the text tool (so they don't disappear), the app will probably crash on export. The only way to recover your work at that point is with a screen shot - so you can finish it in another app and get the job done elsewhere.
It's hard to be consistent with layers, too. Sometimes you're on the top layer, sometimes you're not. How did that happen?! There is no way to collapse / merge layers to recover, either. I get the tracing paper analogy, but at least with tracing paper the top she is always the one I'm drawing on! Not so here?
I learned all this the first time I used the app in the field (that's the whole point of having it on an iPad, right?). Everything seemed fine until I got back in the office and tried to export. Surprise!
Another annoyance: there's no text size or style function so you have to set a grid and scale to that, manually (but better to write by hand if you can avoid the disappearing text problem ( or is it a feature?).
Hope the thing matures soon so I can depend on it!
Architects dream app
If you need to redline or quickly draw an idea this app cannot be beat. Great for meeting notes as well.
Love the concept and would buy for 10-15 bucks...but a subscription is...to reiterate...bull.
