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.

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.
Ok, has bugs
It works well for general note taking from the lesson, but has some bugs that make me consider switching back to paper:
1) Evernote sync doesn't work. It may be because I have two factor authentication on my EN account , but whatever the reason, it doesn't work.
2) every time I switch to another app, like by bible app, then back to this app, it thinks something else changed my file in iCloud and warns me
3) lately, possibly related to ios 8, it often erases ALL notes taken in the yellow scratchpad area, which is insanely frustrating.
Love this note taking app! You can take notes during the messages and have them with you on the go after. No more pieces of paper lying about uselessly and unavailable. It makes the act of taking sermon notes infinitely more relevant. They are always there to reference. So pleased.
You may also do your tithing through the app.
