Add iCloud sync

Love this app for the ability to view 2-4 pages at a time (very helpful for viewing PowerPoint slides), the updated highlight features to add multiple colors to not only the highlight, but pens as well.

The only missing thing that continues to boggle my mind as to why it has not already happened as multiple other note taking apps have been able to accomplish this successfully, is the iCloud sync across devices. I am so tired and it’s very frustrating to have to remember which device I took notes on instead of me being able to use whatever device I want and be able to access my most recent up to date set of notes. I shouldn’t have to backup my notebook and then recover it on another device. This is why I have not fully transitioned to using Flexcil for my needs.

Developers, please fix this sooner rather than later. Thank you.

APP crashes on iPad Pro 5th Generation

I am currently experiencing a significant issue with the app on my 5th generation iPad Pro. After launching the app, it consistently crashes after about 20 seconds of usage. I reported this problem back in May, but it has remained unresolved for over two months. Initially, I had hoped that it would be resolved with time, but it is disheartening that despite the issue being identified, no improvements or fixes have been implemented for over two months. This situation is incredibly frustrating as I have stored university lecture materials for over a year, and now I cannot even transfer the backups without the app crashing every 20 seconds, rendering it completely unusable. I have no choice but to purchase a different app for the upcoming semester and wait for this app to be fixed. While this app is genuinely excellent, the critical drawback and the company's silence as a consequence of patiently waiting make it imperative for those who have important data or materials to consider using a different app. Moreover, since I cannot retrieve my backed-up data, there is nothing I can do personally to resolve this issue. This entire situation is incredibly disappointing, and I strongly encourage individuals who have important files, documents, or future references to opt for an alternative app.

We're very sorry for any inconvenience caused. I have to say it is very hard to resolve the issue if we can't reproduce the issue you are experiencing. I'd like to request you to check the following guide and send the data so that we can take a look and figure our the cause of the problem? https://support.flexcil.com/hc/en-us/articles/6559065087769

Love and hate with this app. Giving up

I revisit the app’s updates every couple of months, hoping for significant improvements, but they have yet to materialize. My own learning philosophy, which appears to be somewhat mirrored in the app’s design, involves two phases: Phase 1 is focused on active reading with annotations, while Phase 2 concentrates on organizing and managing knowledge through excerpts, which are kept in a separate note. Despite its potential, the app falls short in several key areas: •Confusing Selection Mode: The app offers various gestures for text selection and highlighting, but none are reliably effective. •Inefficient Annotation Mode: Users must constantly toggle between modes to annotate a document directly. •Lack of iCloud Sync and Mac App: Despite its longevity, the app still doesn’t support iCloud syncing or offer a Mac version. •No Option for Original PDF Storage: The app lacks a feature to store original copies of PDF files. As for the separate note for excerpts: •Ill-Designed Note Window: The pop-up draft/note window seems like a good idea but lacks careful implementation. It needs features such as docking to a margin, adjustable transparency, or resizable dimensions.
