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.

Notability gives life to your ideas, stores your notes, and improves your memory and organization. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we do.

Best Note Taking App By Far!!!!

I'm pretty much addicted to this app. My meetings at work as well as my song-writing are so reliant on this app going on two years now.
They keep updating it and making it better and better.
The only thing I missed when I first got it was the link between the audio on a word by word basis, NOW they've added this but in an even more intuitive way.
The drawings, highlights, AND texts all are connect to what's being recorded at that time. The playback reveals what you were doing at that exact time of note-taking.
I basically just put in keywords and hit record now...thus giving me less of "hold, let me write that down" and more face time with my staff. Thank you Notability for all of your updates! **A more visual representation of the sound wave recorded, along with editing of the length of what was recorded, would be highly appreciative, then I could recommend this to fellow songwriters!**

Note-Taking and Tasking of the Future

I started using this app after starting a new program in college. I am surprised how much sense this app makes. You can record lectures and group them by recording, organize notes into folders and topics, insert pictures, links to websites, draw diagrams, type or write out notes, highlight, cut and resize, edit PDF files with notes (etc), back up with multiple sources (including iCloud, Google Docs, DropBox), share with friends and classmates, restore or download with ease...Notability is just a well-rounded source for iOS users. I have had zero issues with crashes as well, which I am over-joyed for. There is even a place to provide feedback and ideas straight to developers. I recommend this app without hesitation. I would have easily paid double for this.

Love this App: best app for students

This is a must have for any student and at this price it is totally worth it! I've tried using other note taking apps and some have more features that Notability doesn't. However, notability wins because of how simple it is to use. It is more close to the paper and pen method of taking notes. I use it to study for the MCAT and I have more than 50 books, notes and quizzes on it and I love that it is all on my small and compact iPad. I wish I had this during my undergrad years but can't wait to continue using it during med school.
