Notability App Reviews

  • Amazing but needs more!!!

    By PatrickTran0316
    I love the app already. Everything is organized and ready to go when I start school at the end of the month. But I think app needs some improvements. Under subjects, I believe the app should have subject sections to help organize section topics within subject tabs.
  • Could improve with layer functionality

    By mgibbon2
    This app is good unless you want to use photos, handwriting and text all together in one document. Currently my handwriting is the top layer, then is a full page photo and hidden underneath is all the information I had in text boxes. This is incredibly frustrating! I wish I had the power and ability to tell the program which element I wanted layered in which order. Please consider this suggestion!!!!! I’d add back the two stars I took away from this review.
  • Notability is falling behind other note-taking apps

    By davishal
    This app needs a makeover if it wants to stay competitive with other applications. Adding handwriting recognition and split-screen were moves forward, but people continue to flock to applications that allow the user more formatting flexibility. Notability, please allow people to easily import and utilize custom templates. Being able to import and then to copy and paste individual pages as a “template” doesn’t cut it anymore. Even just expanding your current range of pages to include more options (dot grid, etc) would be an improvement. Additionally, offering different ways to view your notes would be great (ex. Grid view vs. list view) and would give hardcore users an easier way to find their notes when each subject has >50 notes. Until Notability stops resting on its laurels and starts to listen to its user base, I fear users will continue to flock to other, more forward-thinking apps that continue to evolve.
  • App crashes way too much

    By Missylovesapple
    Every time I try to import a PDF the app crashes.
  • Best Note Taking App

    By No_gluten
    I am sales, inside and outside, I use this app all day long to take notes when discussing CNC machinery with clients. Most times I hand write my notes within the app, which makes things so easy to find when I need to reflect or remember a note I have written. I convert some notes to text to insert into my employers work CRM, Act! through Parallels on my MacBook, which saves me time. I think hand writing the note tends to help me recall the conversation better than just typing the note. I also keep notes for books I have read, journal, food diary, home improvements, and just about any other note I take. Keep up the improvements would love to see Text Expander access, through the Smart Keyboard like Ulysses has on the iPad Pro in iOS 12. BTW Just say no to paper!!
  • Excellent

    By DoublyDoodads
    Excellent app would be almost perfect with better note organization... the lack of a way to organize your notes into virtual notebooks is a real shame, please consider adding new functionality for organizing and navigating through large numbers of notes. Think of how it is done traditionally with physical notebooks and implement a way of having different notebooks for different subjects, with the ability to drill down into a notebook and view sections from either an index or index tabs. There is limitless potential, a more conventional look that better emulates the real thing will help with immersion and add some features you might not have otherwise thought of in the process. Keep up the fantastic work!
  • Sad buy

    By Zhongjie Shen
    Had high hope but it just ok. Plz add feature allowing user to draw circle. Also cannot extend space like Microsoft note. It is just a notebook and not friendly to power users
  • Great app

    By Mister Trott
    Please continue to make this app great 🤗
  • More colors please!!!!

    By Alvieeeeeeeeeee
    I have been using this app constantly for over a year.This app has been a staple in my daily life from academia to my personal journaling. The only slightly down side is the limiting colors. Yes, I know there is a decent amount of colors already but I think this note taking app would skyrocket in performance if it allowed its more colorful/creative users to choose their own colors sort of like a color wheel. Please if this can be added I would greatly appreciate it.
  • Does not allow to add photos or gif on iPad Pro

    By MzTrese
    When I tap the + symbol photo is not listed nor is gif. It does not show all the options that it shows in the help section to add imagines.
