All Round Note Taking App - Use It Every Day!

Noteshelf totally caters to all my note taking and professional needs. It is the most unique, feature rich and versatile app i have ever come across in the entire app store. And, possibly the function that makes this app clearly stand out from the crowd of other note taking apps is its smooth handwriting and beautiful and easy user interface. And i love the Personalisation options it offers too. Starting from the custom papers and covers, multiple importing options, text entry, page orientation presets, selectable writing styles, various shelf themes and the biggies like Apple Pencil support, iOS9’s app multitasking support, wrist protection, auto advance zoom mode, auto publish into Evernote, passcode protection, multiple export and backup options---to the latest audio recording, shapes tool & photo editing options……you name it, they have it!!! They also have an extensive knowledge base in their support portal and provide real time support to their users. Added to all this is the considerate Developers who have been very thoughtful of counting in votes from users and working on making the most requested feature a reality! Thank you so much guys! Way to go! I highly recommend this app!

Killer App

I bought my iPad Pro to use primarily with Adobe Lightroom but have found it much more useful with my day job totally because of Noteshelf. I do a lot of on-line research and print documents to PDFs to later mark-up in Noteshelf. It's a great tool for marking up documents as well as taking handwritten notes. Even though I rated it 5 stars, there are a few improvements that could be made but otherwise, Noteshelf is a killer app. I look forward to what they may come up next.

UPDATE: After using it for a couple months since I wrote my first review, I continue to say it is THE best note taking application out there. I have purchased and tried several notable competitors and for note taking, ability to import PDFs and overall organization, none of them hold a candle to Noteshelf. I hope they continue to make improvements but even now, it makes the iPad Pro & Pencil, well worth the investment. Great productivity tool!

Not there yet

Although I agree with most of the reviews of this product it falls short of the most important features. One, no ICloud sync. You cannot access on multiple devices? Why this is not an included feature is beyond me. You can sync to Evernote for an additional charge of $1.99 but it is only one way and that is to Evernote. I want to use a journal throughout the day and on multiple devices. Second, the handwriting palm elimination is excellent. It is far better than Penultimate but it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of response time while writing. There is a slight lag which I noticed instantly since I always write in Penultimate. The App needs to be updated to really optimize for the Apple Pencil. Almost as if it was added as a updated feature by name only but never truly optimized for the amazing accuracy of the Apple Pencil. I do like the password protection on the notebooks but this app needs to address some necessary features required by most users today.
