Great for university lectures

I use this to display on a projector. I can write notes and solve problems then save it to convert to pdf and upload to Blackboard. Glitches: erase tool doesn’t remember its size; hard to search for files - needs better file manager. Even better would be a pdf converter since I have to load to smartnotebook on a pc and then save as pdf. Also, after latest iPad updates the app doesn’t appear in the suggested app list now so can’t open files directly from one drive as before. Actually that’s now a real pain.

It's FREE and its EXCELLENT APP!!!!

Don't know why I want to see the latest version of this app..maybe I want to get an upgraded one to see if there are a shapes that can be inserted. However, I end up reading the reviews of this app. It's sad to see a bad review for this app despite for giving it away for FREE to use for educational purposes. It is complete no problem for my iPad pro with the latest version iOS 14.1. The Apple pen works really well and responsive as well as if like I was writing on a real paper pad. I enjoy writing my signature because if that smoothly responsive app. I don't know why people gave a bad review after using it for free instead of asking to develop it to work for every device. My ipad pro is 5 years old and this app is just working as if like writing on a real paper. This app does not only reduce the use if a real paper helping the planet but the developer fave it to us for free after tones of tireless hours to develop this app. I must say thank you to the developer of this app. I can see that the last update was three years ago, 2017 and it's clearly you have abandoned it. But a BIG THANK YOU TO YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE.
