  • some things wrong!

    By awwwwwwwsomehhh
    Some bugs appear in this new version! When I reopen the app, my handwriting’ll disappear! Hope you guys can fix it quickly~
  • Love the update

    By Nifdeveloper
    I have been using the great app for months. The latest update solves exactly the problems that I need. If you wanna go further, there are another two functions that we may need. (1) Add the shape of arrow into auto shape drawing. Another basic and important shape! (2) Customized positions for tool icons (text, eraser, pen...) like how Safari did. I use Apple Pencil 1 and it will be helpful to move them to left-hand position. Then I can write with right hand and change tool with left hand. At last, thank you for the great app!
  • Delete Pages in Notes

    By DaveNancy
    Just saw with the latest app revision, deleting pages is quicker, easier. I do not understand, because I have notes with text only on 1 page, yet the note has 4 pages, and I am not able to delete any of the extra pages. I really like the app, but this should not be a difficult thing to do!
  • The New Update(s)...

    By Twilight Daze
    Let me start by saying I’ve had Notability for a number of years now; bout 4 to 5. Back then, those were the days the app never bugged out, and if it did, it always saved. I could write footnotes on images, draw on pages without it lagging. I could make circles with ease, and it never corrected my shapes and/or handwriting. Until now. Notability has a new number of problems, despite yesterday’s (6/25/19’s) update. -Shapes: It’s absolutely wonderful that notability has added other shapes besides circles. However, when tapping to “draw” a dot, it zooms me out and it actually doesn’t make the shape itself. This also happens with my handwriting when writing lowercase ‘i’s. The other shapes themselves merely aren’t bad, and I do like how it doesn’t auto-shape a drawing if you want it to look a certain way, so good job on that. -Shutting Out: After drawing a few dots (see above), or even just regular drawing, typing, calligraphy, etc., the app suddenly shuts out and shows my home screen. This is abnormal for the app. It has NEVER done this before in the history of its past, but since these update(s), this has been a recurring issue. Not only does it shut you out of the app, but when you go back in, none of your progress is saved... again, in Notability’s past, this has never happened. -Images: When inserting images, it’s usually very simple, and it still is now. However (as mentioned before), when writing or typing on the images, this is usually where/when most of the bugs listed occur. Now you’re probably wondering why I’ve taken such an amount of time, and so many words to report the problems with these new updates. I spent my time doing this because I LOVE Notability. Even though most of its main functions (in my opinion) aren’t working anymore, I couldn’t find it in my heart to give it a one star, because truly, Notability is a five star app. I checked several other recent reviews, and noticed others also/still having the same bugs, and I realize that the developer(s) is/are trying to kill the bugs, and address the problems. I just really hope that most of them are fixed soon, and most definitely I will change my review back to a five star.
  • Almost perfect for school

    By ShawnseePK
    I use Notability exclusively for all my notes in school. I love the flexibility of changing paper styles, adding sticky notes, highlighting, etc. and I love the addition of the dot grid paper. The only thing I wish Notability did is have even smaller options for lines on the paper. I like to write pretty small and I like to have a lot of information on one page. I would love the option of writing small with less space between lines.
  • Constantly downloading

    By Ohio238
    I seem to have the same issue as other users, and I would like some assistance in resolving my problem. I have used Notability for years and it has worked smoothly until recently. Now every time I open it, for some reason it downloads all my notes from the Cloud. Not a single note can be accessed for quite a long time. I could understand if it was backing up notes that had been modified since it was last opened, but all notes? I can’t even search.
  • Key missing features

    By j00nie
    1. Tables - I don’t need star shapes in my notes; what I need are basic tables 2. Ability to have images and drawings move with text - when I want to add a few lines of text to a paragraph that is surrounded by images, I have to manually move the images to fit the new text. This is especially tedious for longer notes as it offsets everything subsequent to the new text.
  • Great App

    By At best buy
    Terrific app with great usability. How ever when sync to the cloud is selected, each time you open the app ALL of the docs must re-download. Making quick use of the app in the mode nearly useless.
  • Best note taking app!

    By Tanner at SUN TAN CITY
    This is the best note taking app on the market, I use it for college and personal notes. All of my nursing friends who know about it use noteability and love it. I’ve watched yt videos and read so many reviews on it and so I bought it. It is the one of two apps I’ve paid for (the other being complete anatomy 3D) and it’s worth every penny. I intend to use it for med school as well!
  • The Best Note-Taking System I’ve Ever Worked With

    By Jake Rosenzweig
    I cannot recommend this app enough. It continues to surprise me everyday (and trust me, I use this EVERYDAY!). I have all my lectures, homework, and textbooks from all throughout grad school. It is amazing to be able to quickly and easily go to switch between notes, have them up side-by-side, or even search through ALL your texts (handwritten or typed) instantly. I have zero complaints about this app. It is beautiful, easy, and intuitive. Evidence: - THERE ARE NO SYNCHRONIZATION ISSUES! (Microsoft OneNote lost me as a consumer because of the way it would displace text on top of itself My notes became unravelable.) - It hardly ever has any hang ups. - Can easily move text around with no lag, no matter how much text you select. - Can easily import multiple PDFs, images, etc. into a single page, and beautifully so. Even a 700 page PDF will quickly be imported with no lag whatsoever. - Can modify existing text, change the color of text, can rotate text selections through any angle, and resize as you see fit. - Now they have shape templates! Of course it is not a perfect app, but it’s as close as you’re gonna get! The pros far, far, FAR outweigh the cons.
