ZoomNotes Lite is an iPad/iPhone visual note-taking app. It lets you quickly make handwritten notes and sketches on virtual paper, on PDF files, on MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint docs (via GoogleDrive), and over images. Uniquely, it also lets you zoom in and out without arbitrary limits, an invaluable feature for this type of app. It has a free fully functioning pen (although you will be able to try the pens too), and more available as in-app purchases. It has unlimited paper sizes/styles, unlimited colours and line thicknesses, and a large range of ways to share its documents making ZoomNotes the most versatile handwriting/drawing app.
ZoomNotes Desktop for Mac now also available.
ZoomNotes is much more than a replacement for your trusted paper notebook!
Compatible with any capacitive stylus pen (although fingers work well too).

Ratings and Reviews
I just become aware of new capabilities making it even better app!
Once you have read the instructions it’s easy to use. The instructions are essential as it’s not intuitive. The paid version has loads of features and I wish more were available in the free one. This doesn’t mean it’s not usable, it is still extremely useful. The app will remind you that you are using the free one and offer you the upgrade every time you practice with a new item. All that said I very much like this app and will probably upgrade to the paid version as I get more idea how to use all its bits and pieces.
Fully functional free note taking app which is a pleasure to use. I must admit I tried the paid for features then proceeded to purchase the full app, but it was an ideal way to try the app features before purchase. My favourite feature is the infinite whiteboard pages which are so versatile, especially when lined or as graph paper.
