    I was taking notes in lecture and the app froze, then proceeded to delete half of my notes..... kinda unreliable seeing as I HAD TO PAY FOR IT. Please fix this problem because it’s quite annoying...
  • so glad I found this, whew 😄🎨

    I was very happy with my previous note-taking app, but it's been abandoned. The others I've tried were awful, until this one. This one is wonderful!!! Expensive, but given what I've been through, perhaps worth it. I love the way it's designed with Dividers, Subjects, and Notes. There's lots of color, the paper is configurable, the ink flows beautifully, and photo importing is a breeze! I surprised myself by adding a theme (also pretty steeply priced, but lovely). I'm also glad there's File Sharing in iTunes. I wouldn't have bought this without the File Sharing (iTunes) option. Wonderful instructions too! Love it!!! 💛🍧☀️ Wish list: Although the color palettes for ink are well chosen, I'd love to have sliders or a picker to be able to create my own colors, if desired. Although the included papers are very nice, the textures and some of the colors are somewhat heavy-handed. Again, I'd love a color picker to choose perhaps a lighter shade. Also, perhaps subtle linen textures, subtle art paper textures, etc., would be nice instead of the sandy ones offered. And PLEASE add a "Redo" button instead of hiding it non-intuitively as an invisible choice only if you interrupt what you're doing to long press the "Undo" - very annoying - NOT hip, not cool.
  • iPhone version need a search function

    The iOS version for the iPhone lacks a search function. That function is available on the iPad version. Please out of search function to the iPhone version. At that point I will give it a full five stars.
  • Not very reliable when downloading PDFs

    Love the app, but i cannot get it to consistently download PDFs so i can follow along with the lectures in class. Fix this and I’ll give this app 5 stars!

    By Grr, fix it!!!!
    ... until it started having a bug where if you tried to tap on the screen to add a text box and type from a Smart Keyboard, it would bug out, not type anything, and then eventually bring you up to the very beginning of the document. I had to eventually disconnect the Apple Pencil, which is completely unnecessary. I’ll be happy to give it five stars once this bug is fixed.

    Notability freezes and doesn’t load when I open it. This happens almost daily. This is on iOS 11.2.5
  • Amazing but need 1 improvement

    Flawless as a note taking app. But since I use it for annotating pdfs I really hope they add a feature thats present in GoodNotes - “when highlighting text with marker, the text does not pop out, making it hard to read the text.”
  • Still Best note taking app but needs to add some critical features to make it more useful

    I use this for everything... marking up PDFs, class lectures, solving problems, and especially for annotating lectures in which drawings are needed. If you have the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, you are set! Only thing is I wish they would allow looking/editing multiple documents at one time, not just single document... it’s a pain... they should allow like split screen of 2 different documents. Pursuing a PhD I biomedical sciences, we read A LOT of scientific articles; of which I import as PDF into notability, however I wish it would allow me to resize the pdf, make it 75%smaller so I had more room to write in the margins! Also, sometimes we compare documents/DATA side-by-side and it would be nice to open 2 docs at once or divide screen in 4, allowing view of 4 differentdocuments.
