Ratings and Reviews
This app rivals note anytime and inkflow. The latter are more flexible. However zoom notes has a lot of advantages to a presenter and teacher:
One can do connected maps of any kind
One good addition would be the ability to add files and links: but then again this isn't the main function.
Strengths: vector drawing; smooth handwriting; infinite fonts (pretty much) ; variety of colours; price ; Easy access
It would be nice to have a normal view option with menu that doesn't have so much of the top of the screen taken up.
What I like is that responses via reviews are taken up quickly - improvements .
Better for my use than other multi media apps and again , a very fair price.
This has been done and it would be nice to see video capturing the whole page image - or an option to do so.
Subpages are brilliant though. In fact indispensable once one is used to them .
Renaming remains a bit of a pain - like all such apps. A hold and menu option would be useful.
Colours would be easier to change- more naturally.
Great application that writes better than paper with a lot of paper size options.
Excellent Array of Features, Poor Stylus Integration
This app has a wide array of features and is customisable in extensive ways, making it easy to organise your notes, your toolbars, pens, shapes etc. However, writing using an Adonit Jot Touch 4 is often a pain. The app randomly deletes or fails to record stylus inputs, making it a very frustrating experience. Disabling Adonit’s palm rejection helps somewhat, with all inputs being recognised, but the app still deletes text at random. I tried disabling all shape recognition aids, cross-out to delete, and other similar features, to no avail. While the app attempts to differentiate between stylus and finger inputs and discard the latter, the implementation is very poor, and there seems to be no option to disable this while the bug is (hopefully) fixed. In short, a prime example of too many features crammed into an app, making it a pain to get it to work just right. I suggest you look elsewhere if you are merely looking to jot down notes, and are not interested in complex pen customisation, shapes etc.
Incredibly powerful software
If you just want something to do simple handwriting notes then this might not be the app for you. But if you want to trace a floor plan, write notes with diagrams, do presentations, record notes with handwriting and sound etc etc then this is the app for you. Yes the bewildering amount of options can be a turn off at first but invest a bit of time like I did and you’ll find this will be your ‘go to’ app for note taking. Particularly good with sync to Evernote and its ocr handwriting search (save as jpg). The app is constantly being improved and the dev was responsive to my query on how to delete with pen strokes (a big Z motion) which is obvious once you’ve done it once...
