“Write smoothly. Correct intuitively.”
Note Always is a dedicated notebook app for Apple Pencil.

- Outstanding feel
The fastest response. Realistic, smooth renderings of blurring and blotching.
Because this app is just for the Apple Pencil, we were able to achieve this outstanding feel.

- Circle, grab and move
All it takes is enclosing the part you wish to move in a circle and move the hand icon.
Color, width, and the size are also adjustable.

- Smooth modification
Erase with your finger, undo by tapping with two fingers, and “circle and move”.
Without switching tools, perform “erase, undo, and modify” intuitively.

Draft your thoughts.
Sort out and elaborate drafts.
In order to support the repeated process of think, write, and re-write,
the product is made to pursue the pleasant ease of write and stress-free modification.

Perfect for sorting ideas, drafting presentation or manuscript, self-brainstorming.
For research, travel journaling, and schedule management.

Main Features

Intuitive stickies “writing with a pen and move with your finger”
Free sorting is the most suitable for sorting out ideas and thoughts.

Straight line, square and circle can be modified beautifully without losing the handwritten style.
Tip of the pen can be pushed in strongly, too.

Edit photos
Clipping and applying a retrospective filter,
Shading gridlines. Casually making it look slightly stylish.

Drag & drop
Enclose and push with your finger to drop into another app as is!
Easy linkage even with a part of a page in a notebook.

Other features include zooming, Split View, rearranging pages, exporting to PDF, and saving on the iCloud.

Note Always was created specifically for the Apple Pencil. You can use the app without one, but your writing will be much less smooth and responsive. We ask for your understanding.

An app that I’ll use for a long time

This is the most intuitive app for those who is transitioning between paper to paperless. It does the job. The app just launched sometimes ago but it’s already very good. I believe it will be better with time so I’m looking forward to spend more quality times with it in the future.
Pen and ink is smooth, no bugs whatsoever.
If we can organize folder within folder, it’ll will be a plus.
Great job!


Specifically for making notes = most responsive

This is the most responsive note-taking app. It is somehow the most natural to write on this app, as compared to Notability, good notes, noteshelf, note plus.

I use this app specifically to make my own notes and jot down random ideas or doodle, like I would on paper. To me this is a pretty big deal, and justifies this app.

Keep in mind that this app lacks many features. You can not annotate pdf in it. You can not make audio notes etc. Page-turning can probably be improved.

A simple feature unique to this app, which I love the most, is that I can use my finger as an eraser. It also has good pen and colors.


Very nice writing / drawing app

Initially it was a little buggy, but with updates it is much improved. All the users that rated it low should give it another try. The app controls are subtle. You will start appreciating them after you have used the app a few times as they are not distracting when writing / drawing
