  • This app has crazy issues

    I have been using this app since the start of the school year. After the update close to the new year Notability completely changed. I dislike the new zoom feature which sometimes messes up my writing and also it does not automatically sync with OneDrive anymore. It always shows up as document.note not PDF as it was before. Also it messes up the formatting when importing a PowerPoint and cannot import documents. This apple was originally a staple to for school now I am worried about the future of this app

    Seriously, you can’t find a note-taking app that works with the Apple Pencil as well as Notability. I have tried all on the market, and they all have that slight microsecond lag, except Notability. It’s perfect. HOWEVER. Unfortunately all other note-taking apps have features that I just can’t believe Notability doesn’t. More paper templates are desperately needed. Cornell would be nice. The ability to draw shapes right on the notes instead of going to a different screen to draw and then insert shapes. BUT MOST OF ALL: For the love of God, allow us to name Subjects and Documents with the same names if they’re under separate dividers. If I have two dividers, Microsociology and Macrosociology, there’s no conceivable reason why I shouldn’t be able to have a “Chapter 1” subject under each divider. I don’t want to have to name one Chapter 1 and one Ch1. I like uniformity.
  • For university is great.

    I would have liked that the text recognition be a bit better, yet I don’t use it that much so for me it’s not that important.
  • Love this app!

    Love this app for taking notes in class but I wish they would redesign the subject folders so that there are more ways to further file my documents into more categories. Otherwise I love all the features and it has helped me be more effective in class!
  • Love it, but...

    I highly enjoy using this app for taking notes in college. But my only request would be to be able to upload paper templates. I enjoy note taking using cornel style, etc. adding this feature would be awesome!
  • Been using it for my college note taking for a while.

    So far so good. The only problem that I encountered was that when I receive several PDF files from others through airdrop, they cannot be imported at the same time. Usually when I import a single file, there should be a sign says “DONE” on the upper-right corner. But it disappears when I try to import several files. Sometimes I have to airdrop all the files one by one, a real hassle.
  • So great

    I can't speak highly enough about this app. It lets me write with beautiful precision, rapidly capturing ideas, refining them and organizing them and doing so between my computer and iPad with relative and automatic ease. It's a fantastic app that has really made my productivity and more importantly creativity, blossom. There is a magic to using the apple iPad Pro, pencil, and this app. It feels like an extension of my person and the very fine tuned and well thought out features (of which I use only a few so far but am consistently surprised and delighted by what the app can do and how it does it) are becoming critical piece of my daily work. Thank you for this app. I only wish there was a windows client as there is for Mac. Truly remarkable and highly recommended.
  • Text box don't work no more

    Frustrated because can't add text boxes on my PDF pwrpoint slides anymore. This happened recently. But I try typing my notes in the text box and I can't see any texts. i tried changing the font, the color. Basically not being able to add texts, makes this app useless
  • Arabic writing

    What a shame, such a good app but unfortunately it doesn’t support arabic writing from right to left I tried everything and it doesn’t go that way, I really regret buying it just because of this phone point
  • Love the experience but one (two) more thing(s)....

    These would be next level: Enable HORIZONTAL split screen of the multi note view. Make the partition thinner also. It takes up too much area. Make a tool puck with all tools that I can move and place anywhere.
