The Saddleback Notes app revolutionizes the way you take notes while at church. Whether you attend in person or online, this app is a great tool for taking notes on the Saddleback Church weekend sermons.

The home page of the app features the notes for each sermon grouped by series, making the sermon notes you’re looking for easy to find. Once you’ve taken notes, they are archived for you on your device, accessible from the app home page. You can also customize your home page view.

Once you open the note for the sermon of your choice, you’ll see that the notes look identical to the print version. The app notes feature several interactive tools including a text tool for typing text, a drawing tool with customizable width, an eraser, scissors to cut and move text or drawing, and undo/redo buttons. The note also features a notepad for adding additional notes, doodling, etc. The app enables you to do online giving right from the app.

Please Update soon - I'm losing my access!


Help! I updated my iPhone and now I cant open my Saddleback Notes until the app is updated. As I look around at Church each week, I can see there are not many of us using these notes, but I love them and have notes going back to December 2014. Luckily I have access on my iPad, but as soon as I update that, I'll be out of luck. Please update app and/or provide a way to download them to Word or format them so I can print them out as a full sheet. (Right now printing comes out as a skinny column format). Love my Church & my notes. Thank you!

Have you forgotten us?


Normally I would send a direct email to developer support but since that link just goes to the main Saddleback page I have to voice my displeasure here. This app has not been updated in 3 years. Apple has been warning for the past year that the app needs to be updated. Are we going to get a new version for iOS 11 or have you just forgotten us? This app started with great promise and could be so much more than it is. A few updates were released and then silence. There has been no improvements or updates, like the very needed 64 bit update. I know I speak for many people who faithfully use this app that we NEED the update for iOS 11. Please release one soon.

Works if you don't mind losing notes


Starts out fine but it can freeze up when typing the text notes. Sometimes it resolves itself after a minute or 2. If not, it crashes and you lose everything if you haven't saved. I have gotten use to saving often to mitigate that risk. The thing that drives me crazy if that it doesn't save all the fields consistently. For example, I'll take a bunch of notes, save and then go back to find that no matter what I do, some fields will show as "(null)". Last week it was on a fill in field and this happened. This week, it was all the hidden text notes ">>". Lost about half a page.
