Unique Concept

I’m extremely big on note taking apps as I fully utilize them for school. The app has an excellent design and many cool features. However, I understand that it’s new so I’ll keep an eye out for future updates. But for now I’ll stick with Notability. Here’s why:

It doesn’t have...

1. Text feature to type with
2. Ability to create custom color presets
3. Split screen between notes in the same app
4. Not a huge fan of markup - I think you could create a much better pens and highlighter tools yourself
5. Folders in folders
6. Infinity pages
7. Importing scans
8. Searching for pages

The app is extremely strong in UI design, lovely notebook colors, page templates, and fluidity. That’s why I see a lot of potential...but it just needs more of these tools or else someone could just use the default Notes app which has more features than this app. Hope this feedback helps! Keep up the good work

This app is a great idea. The only present problem is how the app seems to run a bit glitchy pls fix. I will increase the amount of stars I have given.

This has the potential to be the best notetaking/drawing app

I really enjoy the interface and it feels natural.

The reason why I am giving it 4 stars is cause its a little buggy and has crashed a few times. The selection panel for the pages is also extremely slow at times

I think it would be really cool if we could draw our own pictures on the cover of each book.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to the next update :)
