Customer Reviews

Not PDF friendly and unprofessional support team

Downloaded PDF’s open up upside-down and you’re unable to change the orientation. Even if the orientation is switched to portrait mode it still doesn’t orient the PDF from top to bottom. When I brought this to the attention of the support team back in September they claimed it would be fixed on the next update. Next update passes and it’s still not fixed. I emailed support again about the same issue and customer support suggested I try turning my device upside-down as a solution. I replied with letting them know that means the keyboard case my ipad is in, is then upside down and makes it harder to write/perform functions. What customer support considers turning a device upside-down a satisfactory resolution rather than correcting the problem itself? I still have not received a reply from customer support when I asked when the problem would be fixed. Waste of money. Don’t buy this app, especially not for PDF functions. It is NOT PDF friendly.

Above average app, but with issues

-can be glitchy when using stencils
-stencil size is capped. Sometimes you might want it bigger than what it is, but you’ll have to settle for a smaller version.
-I know its more creative to combine shapes so you could end up with a new pattern, but figuring out which stencil to use takes time. Bottom line: more stencils please.
-once you’ve added a picture, you can’t move it.
-Pictures only have one transparency, and that’s opaque. Forget about layering.
-You can’t isolate length vs width, and vice versa, when resizing pictures.
-Forget about photo distortion, which can be useful when you’re imagining a collapsing wavefunction, but I definitely am digressing.
-typewritten texts can ONLY be horizontally oriented, and relocating a text is terribly temperamental, at best. I mean, 6/10 times I try to move it, or resize its length, I end up flipping a new page on my notebook. That can get annoying after the fourth try. So you can imagine me getting really frustrated by the time I’m at 6.
-did I mention that most of the 1-star reviews have some merit?

OKAY, so why 5 stars?
Because, of all the notetaking apps out there, including some really awesome sketch apps, this one is really good.
-53 Paper, you can add a picture and a text, but you don’t see it simultaneously, with this one, you so can. Same thing with Inkboard
-Day One is a fantastic journaling/writing app, but try sketching/scribbling in it.
-Penultimate is good when you wanna brainstorm longhand. Awesome pen selection and whatnot. But doesn’t have stencils, nor can you add pics.
-Since this is supposedly about notetaking, I’m not going to compare it with sketching apps, most of which, you can’t add pictures anyway, nor could you type in words (in case your fingers get cramped).
-I love this app so much that I stopped using note taking apps in my Mac, like Notability and CourseNotes

I could be wrong, and someone might know of a better app, but the flexibility of Notes HD is, to my limited knowledge of notetaking apps available, unparalleled.
