Editors' Notes

Our iPad Pro becomes an awesome on-the-fly notepad with this app built specifically for Apple Pencil. With a few taps and strokes, we can format handwritten text as titles, paragraphs or bulletpoints. And creating diagrams or marking up photos? Dead simple. Ah, the simple joy of taking old-fashioned notes—and decorating the page with random doodles!

At last!!!

Three days ago I was looking for an app that would allow me to convert handwriting into text on my iPad Pro, using the Apple pencil. The search led to Notes Plus. But while there, I saw MyScript. It was free and had some rave reviews from people with bad handwriting. I installed it and immediately found that a £1.99 add-on was required to make it work. I followed the link to get this, only to be told that this was only available in the US. Outraged, I posted a scathing review, giving it one
* - and would have given it less if I could have. I paid my £9.99 for Notes Plus. I soon found that, good as it was for many things, it was completely unable to decipher my handwriting. I can't blame it - only three people on the planet have been able to read what I write, and, sadly, two of them have passed on. I gave up the search. The next day - I'm nothing if not determined - I started again. This time the search led to Nebo MyScript. When tried to install it I found that it was already there. Overnight it had morphed. This time without the €1.99 add-on. I have now spent some time going through the tutorials and can announce that I'm In Love. Finally, and at last, I have found the Holy Grail! This whole review has been written with this more-than-5 * miracle. I am beyond grateful, not to mention filled with wonder. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The digital world continues to amaze me.

Can’t open since new update

I love this app, it’s fantastic and the developers deserve a lot of praise, but since the new update I have not been able to open the app. I have tried looking on their website but I can’t find any way to contact the developers or anyone else who might be able to help. Does anyone know how to solve this?

As a more general review, the app is brilliant. It is very rare for the system to misunderstand what you are writing once it gets used to your handwriting (unless it is a name or made up word, though it soon learns them) and adding images is quick and easy, as is moving text and separating paragraphs.
The only negative points would be that it does not allow you to paste paragraphs from one language to another (a problem in my case because I accidentally made my initial notebook in America-English rather than UK-English) and copying in general is awkward at points, as is the maths feature. However, these are very minor points for the app as a whole.
I would definitely recommend this app to writers everywhere.
