Welcome to Notability, a powerful note-taker on iPad and iPhone: sketch ideas, annotate documents, sign contracts, complete worksheets, keep a journal, record a lecture, jot travel notes, or teach a class. With iCloud support, your notes always travel with you!

Write, illustrate and annotate using gorgeous ink. Notability's zoom window helps you quickly and clearly draw every detail, while the palm rest protects your notes from unwanted marks. Choose the right pen and paper for any project.

Import forms, contracts, worksheets, documents, presentations, and even books; then use the same tools that help you take beautiful notes in Notability to mark up PDFs. Do you have files in other formats such as doc or ppt? Notability can import these too thanks to Google Drive.

Type an essay, create an outline, fill out an application, or make a list with Notability's advanced word processor. Choose a font, style, color, and size that enhances your work. Even place text exactly where you want using text boxes.

Replay your notes! Everything you type, write or add to your note is linked to the audio recording, giving you more context than ever when reviewing. Just tap play and watch your note unfold. Want to jump to a specific point in the recording? Tap a word with the navigation tool and you’ll go to that point in the recording.

Finding information quickly is an important part of note-taking. Use search to quickly locate notes by title or content. On iPad, bookmark pages of a note, filter a PDF by annotated pages, or search your note for a keyword in the page navigator.

Organize your notes by subject in the library and automatically backup all of your work to Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or webDAV. Also, use these services, plus email, Airdrop, and twitter, to share your Notability files with colleagues, classmates, students or teachers. iCloud will ensure that all of your notes are automatically up to date on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

Note taking perfection

I have been using this app for several years, but it has not been my go-to app until this last update. Before, I went to Audionote because I attend a lot of meetings and prefer to take audio recordings with my notes. This app did it previously, but it did not sync the audio file with the writing. The audio file was a separate thing, from the handwritten note. At last, we have that feature, with the style and class of an executive pad and paper. Other reviews have stated folder and file loss, but I have never experienced that in the several years I have been using this app. I have over 100 notes (I need to clean them out!), in 9 subjects (folders), and I sync via DropBox. Never missed a thing. Couldn't be happier about this app, especially with the new audio file and handwriting syncing functionality.

Top Shelf

I have used Notability day in and day out as a full time college student. All of my notes, lecture recordings, imported PowerPoint presentations and PDF's for the last 2.5 years have all been consolidated into this app. I was already recommending this to all of my classmates before this latest update, but with the newest update and sync'd writing and recording, this app is now a powerhouse! must have piece of software. Instead of writing down the time in my recording of a point I wanted to revisit, I can quickly go to what I was hearing as I was writing, as a science major my notes are extensive and the lectures come fast and furious, I can safely say that now, more than ever, Notability gives me a distinct advantage and truly enhances my educational experience. Great job Notability team!

Almost nothing lacking on this app!

With the introduction of the synchronized audio with handwriting or typing this app is nearly complete! Been waiting for this for a long time. Maybe it will replace my Livescribe pen. Who knows? I like how you can add more notes AFTER recording (during playback) and have them sync with your audio. For example, if you went to the restroom, you could go back later and add in the appropriate notes to what you missed while you were away!!! Awesome! UPDATE: When exporting the audio file with writing, it would be nice to export them in one PDF, instead of separate audio file. This way the audio is not synced with the writing.
