I've been trying to love this app but...
I keep getting a popup to rate the app, It almost forces you to give the app five stars, today there is a banner advertising more epps by Kdan on the app Store making my iphone Version useless even though I paid for the premium ad Free version.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback. The purpose of the pop up is to learn what our app user think about NoteLedge and how we can improve it. In addition to the rating, you can also send us a message if you have any questions about the app.
The in-app banner is to share tips, deals and news for users to get the first-hand news from us. You’re seeing the promotion for other Kdan apps because we were having a Black Friday sale, and we’d like to share the deal with our users. You can close it by tapping the X anytime. We’ll share more tips and user stories in the future.

Great app but I don’t do subscriptions

SoCal Lady

I was so excited about this app. Has everything I needed to take extensive notes. Then I saw it was subscription based. No thank you. If you need more revenue then charge for the app.

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback. The subscription comes with cloud storage and online services that allow you to use NoteLedge across different platform and devices. We do have a stand-alone version that comes with all premium tools except for cloud services. You may search “NoteLedge Ultimate” in the App Store to find it. If you have any questions about the differences, please contact us at We’d be happy to help.



Without premium it is horrible app, would not recommend unless you are willing to pay for p premium.

Developer Response

The free version offers note-taking and document reading tools to cover basic note-taking needs. We understand your concerns. However, the premium version allows us to keep developing quality apps and provide cloud services to sync across different devices and platforms. We offer a free trial for new users who are willing to give it a try. It’s free to cancel the subscription anytime during the free trial period.
