Probably the clean and neat Notebook apps I seen till now .

The best feature the make it extremely productive is clipping, and as I mind my own business, Zoho do it in same way. Never ever face the question “what are your Context”, when I, may not big brains but try to find a concept from where a innovative idea can be generated. If others have such clear concept of developing something that’s new but productive then why not provide those to people like me .
At least whenever I wanted to clip Notebooks clippers kept my word . Thanks for beautiful coordination, very rarely seen .

Verstile and robust to use

It’s one of the app which is perfect for the kind of Guy like me. I love things to get done on time so i always prefer a checklist. Love that inevitable feeling when things get done on time i see “Right” mark there. Notebook app makes things really east for me. In addition, to that please introduce more Notebook covers like giving us liberty to put on our own Snaps from PhotoLibrary. If that happens no one would be more joyous than me. :) I suggest everyone to give it a shot. It’s impeccable in class and yet not Boring to use.

Developer Response ,

We appreciate your valuable feedback. You can set your own covers by:
- Swiping a Notebook towards left, tap 'i'
- From Notebook covers, swipe to the extreme left and tap 'Camera'
- Add any snapshot then and there, or tap on Gallery to select any image from Photo Library. We hope this helps you.

Loved the interface and its functions

Its Long time that i am seeing some good eye catching and equally useful app in App Store. The UI is great and should be solace people who are using native notes app, i found bit of glitch when i started to put my screen shots captured in it, which the developer should address and the limitations of adding only 5 photos should be removed otherwise really great to have something new useful application
