Must have for students!

Update: dropped a star until notability can fix the crashing issue. This hasn't affected me during class yet, but it is very frustrating to lose a lot of work while making study guides when the app crashes. Overall, still very useful, but I won't be able to continue to use and recommend the app if the crash problem isn't remedied soon.

*Chromecast ability would also be a very useful feature!

This app is a game changer for taking notes in class! I have terrible handwriting, so I don't like to physically write ALL of my notes, ya know, because I'd like to be able to use them for studying. I love that I can type, record, AND write in notes completely seamlessly with notability. It is also incredibly easy to insert photos. I keep my iPhone handy in class to take pictures of the board when the professor is drawing something complex (b/c it's awkward to lift a whole iPad Pro in the middle of class😂), and I can just pop it right in my notes and crop what I need! The only thing I would add is an option for special characters (i.e. Math symbols, superscript, subscript) when typing. I get by with writing them in, but it would be nice to be able to type it all when I want to.

I honestly love this program, but this would make it even better!

I love this apps and have been using it for as long as I have had my ipad which is about 4 years now. Im a sophomore in college so I am in pretty rigorous classes including my Organic Chemistry class, and notability has been able to keep me up to par and keeps me from missing out on any information. I would honestly recommend this to ANYONE.

The ability of the app to record the lecture as well as tie it to my writing is invaluable for studying. My favorite feature though is the ability to copy my own text and paste and manipulate it. In my chemistry classes it allows me to save time redrawing the same molecule over and over again. Imagine if there was a clipboard feature, where you can save your writing samples(for me I could use this to save molecules after I have written them and save massive amounts of time) You could add an option to the top of the app of a clipboard and when you open it you'd see all the options of drawings that you had saved previously. A filing system could also be used. This would make the app even more amazing !!!

Finally! A great note pad

I used to use Notability all the time but then it started doing funky things. I also didn't like that I could not scroll with my finger and some other minor, yet annoying issues. So I started using other apps but they only let you write one pageant a time, then once you reach the bottom you had to open a new one or do weird orchestrations to get extra space in the same note. For multiple other reasons I recently did the Notability update hoping for it to be better and WOW!!! To my surprise they fixed all the prior bugs and made some other great improvements too, like detecting my palm so I don't have to use the protector and easy finger scrolling.

Having used now at least five other apps for abundant college note taking, I can honestly say this is now, once again, my go-to app. It works great with the Apple Pencil, which I now have, but also did beautiful writing with the other earlier less expensive pencils that were on the market. I had several, even the fatter spongy topped ones.

This app now gets 5 stars from me, which I rarely give unless truly warranted.
