Okay, so as a high school student, I use this app for school. It's a requirement and nobody really uses anything else because we can't find anything else as good as this. I love the fact that you have a zoom box that you can write on that that transfers your writing to where you put this zoom box (and as someone who writes small and can't stand their handwriting big, this is a necessity), and that you can cut and paste things really easily (a function that I use all the time). I have started to love to take notes now because it's so easy. The only thing I wish was added to this app is to have more colors! I hate the fact that I'm confined to only so many colors and they get quite repetitive after 3 years! Other than that, this app is perfect. I'll admit that last year I started looking for an app that had the same functions as this one but with more colors and I never could find anything. So two thumbs up 👏 👍
Update: So like I said, I use this app for school and it being my senior year, my work load has increased. There is one more thing I wish would be added to this app. On paper you can refer two pages together without much trouble. On notability, one thing that aggravates me is when I have an assignment to do, and I can use my notes, I have to flip back and forth, back and forth to my notes and the assignments. It’s time wasted and annoying, if something could be added so that I can have 2 notes side by side together that would make my life so much easier.

A staple, but disappointing

Update: I have used this app for YEARS now through high school, college, and now medical school. I love the app and appreciate it to no ends. However, one ongoing issue I have noticed is its unreliability with downloading ppt files to PDF within the app from Canvas. I don’t know if it’s a problem with communication with canvas or just a general issue with converting to pdf within the app, but it’s annoying to have to convert all my lecture notes to pdf on my MacBook then transfer them to my iPad. It’s so unreliable I don’t think I can use only my iPad anymore, which is what my goal was. Anyway, long story short: I love this app, but it’s been frustrating for about the past year or two.

The new update added better pencil integration, ,earning now it has actual pressure sensitivity rather than just the way they did it before which was through speed sensitivity determining the weight of the line drawn. This combined with the other amazing aspects of this app that I have always enjoyed make this my favorite app ever. I use it in college to take notes and annotate presentations during lecture as well as at work for taking notes during meetings or as a work log. It is simply an amazing app, well worth the money, and I look forward to continue using it with my iPad Pro through medical school. Thank you ginger labs!!!
