ThInk lags a lot, for example, when you want to erase something, it just turns into little squares. Then, when you zoom out, it’s gone. I originally came from notes writer which worked amazing, but this app is just so slow and glitchy. I highly don’t recommend this app for someone who doesn’t have a lot of patience.
