  • Dashed line feature?

    By nicolekatz
    Hi I am a student at UC Berkeley studying chemistry. My teachers always draw dashed lines on the board and I was wondering if you could add a dashed line feature/ pen. This would make my notes even better! Thanks
  • Best Notetaking App I found

    By _Music-Lover_
    I’ve been using this app for years, and appreciate all the updates that have occurred since then. This app has sufficed all my note taking needs, in and out of the classroom. One feature I would like to see is the ability to rename recordings, and possibly to attach these recordings to individual pages. One thing I’ve tried doing this semester is have the recording function on while at a lecture, but having numerous recordings in a file that grows daily is difficult with the current set up. If you don’t remember the time stamp or recording number for a particular point, you have to guess and listen for a bit to see if it’s right. It’s either that, or guess based on the date the notes were recorded. If you could at least rename the audio files, the app would be more useful. It would also be nice if you could change the paper style of individual pages, as well as a feature that easily allows you to draw geometric shapes (adding a figure on top of a graph sticky or any other element get tricky when you click on the wrong one. Sometimes because of that, the graph background ends up on top, and the figure behind it, rendering it useless). There aren’t really any visible bugs with this version of the app, Would recommend for someone looking for a suitable note taking app, whether it’s handwritten or type. I think the addition of a few features would make it better.
  • Great for school!

    By theWossum
    Just purchased my first iPad because of the newly added support for the 2018 regular iPad. This is such an amazing note taking app that it has already saved me a great deal of time and effort in the first few days that I've been using it. The user interface is simple and intuitive, and the ability to easily bring in content from outside of the app is perfect. Just get this app if you have any interest in using an Apple pencil! Thanks notability!
  • Shortcut keys

    By soroushali
    Every thing is amazing, however, lack of shortcuts is bothering when using a keyboard. Please add some.
  • Great Customer Support

  • Search Function

    By corianne.strupp
    Since most recent update, I have been receiving the message “No search results found” no matter what I search. Hopefully there’s a quick fix for this bc I use the search feature often.
  • Siri Shortcuts support

    By cfhbhhj
    Hey I love the app already but with iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts came. Can you please bring support for the new Siri Shortcuts with the next update? Thanks Andrew.
  • Awesome, but hoping for more!!!

    By Petermai6655
    I love this app, but I just wish there could be several more features. I would love to see the addition of shapes for annotation. Like boxes, circles, arrows, etc. These sometimes can’t be drawn precisely, and having the option to add these objects would be awesome. Additionally, I would like to see more annotation options for the imported documents. (The ability to edit, digitally highlight by just taping the word, underlining, strikethrough, etc. When I add notes, I am hoping it would be possible to warp text on imported documents as well. Additionally, If this app could ocr imported documents as well that would be amazing.

  • Amazing Note-taking app

    By Jbone1928
    Once I purchased my iPad I was looking for a note taking app to use with my Apple Pencil. I purchased this app and it’s the best 10 bucks I’ve spent on an app! I love the audio feature that allows me to record the lectures and come back and fill in were I may have missed something. The two side feature just added is a life savers when I’m using an Power Point Presentation and taking notes off them next to each other. The only two things I WISH was added more COLORS !Followed with maybe a MARKER TIP to write with or maybe a PEN TIP to add to the pencil and highlight options. Please make this happen 😩 Keep up the good work!
