Awesome for handwriting on a PDF

I needed an app for handwriting my journal entries on top of a PDF. While there are many notetaking apps out there, only a handful actually have this feature. I've found Noteshelf to be the best out of them all.

It's fast and responsive no matter how many pages of notes I've already written on the PDF. It also has a good and intuitive UI, and the zoomed in detailed view for handwriting works well. It also has good support for some common active stylus e.g., FiftyThree Pencil and Jot Script Evernote Edition, but occasionally they have a flaky Bluetooth connection (which I attribute to me dropping them on the floor) so I ended up using my Jot Pro as my most reliable stylus. Finally the feature that is a personal favorite of mine is the pen tool which makes for good looking handwriting.

I've been using this for over 3 years and every time I want to check out another app, I end up coming back to this one. When it started out there were few bugs, but over the years they've eventually ironed out all the ones I've encountered. It'd be nice if the developers made a UI update but it's still my notetaking app of choice.

I've tried them all. This is the best.

Since my first iPad, I've searched high and low for the perfect note-taking app. I've tried them all (Penultimate, Evernote, Notability, Notes Plus, etc.) and the only one that really works like real paper (for me) is Noteshelf. The biggest difference between Noteshelf and the others is how smoothly the actual writing experience feels. There is zero lag/delay and it actually looks just like my writing. The tools are easy and intuitive (very little need to read the manual). It all just makes sense. Organizing and sorting notes is a breeze, and it syncs with major cloud storage solutions - so backup is easy too. For clarity, I don't work for Noteshelf and I paid full price for this app. This is one of the few apps I swear by. Been using it for years (since before Apple Pencil) and it works wonderfully with an old style iPad stylus, but even better with Apple Pencil. Must have app for notes!


I like this app. I use it more than any other PDF annotate app. I'm happy that it now includes split screen. I've used it to record notes. Great job. Gave only four stars because I would like my notes connected to the recorded lecture. This is a feature in Notability that's really handy. It allows me to review notes at a particular point in the lecture without starting at the beginning of the recorded lecture. Despite this flaw, I use this app constantly. Adding that feature would make it perfect.

Second review
This app is wonderful please try it you will love it. Note taking is a breeze. Notebooks can be organized into one stack but easily kept as a separate day of notes under that subject. Works with Apple Pencil perfectly. I use it constantly. It records lectures they are kept with the notes. If the recording could be accessed by touching the written notes it would be perfect. I prefer this app to Notability still.
