Lots of potential if you take the time to learn
I have had Notebooks on my computer and my iPad for several years. With the recent update, especially with the iPad update, I am really impressed with the quality and potential use of this app. I like working on my iPad and with the latest Notebooks update to that device, I will be using Notebooks a good bit more. You do need to spend time, especially if you are new using HTML. I'm just learning how to make use of all of the potential for formatting documents and books offered in this app. I purchased the PDF Reader with the iPad update, and was very pleased with the additional tools it offered. I'm looking forward to the next update to the Notebooks for Mac. If it is anything as nice as he one for the iPad, I'll be spending the time learning all that it can do as well. I recommend reading the Notebooks Handbook by Alfons Schmid. I usually don't read these guides in the beginning, but after struggling with a few tasks, I decided to take a look. I found answers right away. It is an excellent guide.
I have used Notebooks for over 3 years. Not only can I use it for keeping personal documents in order, I also use it for work and keep meeting notes and other frequently used documents for use on the fly. I just upgraded to version 7 and had absolutely no trouble compressing the version 6 documents and opening them in version 7. I would totally rate this a 5 if it would sync with iCloud.
One flaw makes is obscenely overpriced
I'd previously used this app to organize my work into easily accessible, very organized "books" and had been very satisfied with it. Unfortunately, now that I'm back in grad school, I've discovered its fatal flaw: no ability to markup PDFs. If you're the kind of person who needs a place to store docs, go with this one. If, however, you need to make notes and highlight documents across several devices, you're stuck with Adobe, sadly.
