Crached 3 times in El Capitan


Sadly, I was enthusiastic about this app given the ability to draw on an iPad and link it simultaneoulsy to a Mac desktop, but it crashed twice initially and then crashed again upon reboot. Perhaps the complete lack of devcelopment for the past 18 months means that it’s dead in the water and the develpers neglected to mention that. I will be seeking a refund, of course.

Needs improvement


I wanted to rate this app 5 stars so bad! It’s exactly what I need: as a graduate student, much of my reading for class is in PDF form. I would rather not print all of those documents every week, simply to look at my highlights and notes to respond in class (waste of paper, ink and time), and thus this app appeared to be just what I needed. Except not. My main issue is my inability to bulk rotate my PDFs (all PDFs open vertically, even though Adobe Acrobat opens in horizontal view the PDFs that were saved that way). Also, a “hand” tool would be useful, so that I can use the scroll wheel on my mouse to read through my document (as it stands, I MUST be in either Paint, Text, or Image mode, scrolling through my document by clicking each page individually). It would also be nice if the app opened with a splash screen that enabled you to open a document, as opposed to assuming you want to “create” one.

Hopefully the developers are listening, because I paid for this app expecting it to be my academic life saver and was sadly disappointed. If these things are worked out, I’ll rate higher and even recommend it to my classmates.

There is potential here but it needs work


I would love to use this app more often as the iclould feature is great. As a college student I would love to have all my notes saved in one place, but I find this app extremely hard to do that! This app needs to incorporate better word processing and a lot more features. I have classes where hand written notes are prefered and some where I only type notes, this and its ios companion app have the ability to do that but the word processing capabilites on the mac side is lacking and the handwriting on the ios side is lacking as well. I would love to see a zoom feature added on the iOS side of things becuase the way it is now just does not work. It needed to be less universal and more specific towards each device. I would like to see the mac application act more like pages and the ios side act more like an app like notes plus.
