Disappointed: Used it for four years and it’s not getting better

I’ve been using this as a main note-taking app for four full years and it’s just keep getting more and more unstable. I can’t open a file which contains my notes for the whole semester only because I tried to delete one blank page in this file. Other bugs include turning multiple pages when press the button for next page just one time, and other routine crushes. I’ve been tolerating these minor crushes for almost dozens of updates by now, but I will not continue tolerating. Considering switching to other apps which doesn’t have such SERIOUS problems if you don’t make it better.

Not responsive

I’ve been using this app since 2011. I have well over 600 files, with sub folder structures as well. Over the past 3 weeks, the app no longer allowed me to move new files to a new folder. The app just crashed! I reached out to the developer and heard nothing until the third email and me saying that I would be filing a complaint with Apple. After a brief email response from the developer saying that they had fixed the issue and that I should upgrade to the next version to see if that resolves the problem. I did that to no avail … I now can’t even open and save a file and have not heard back from the developer after 2 more emails… NOT HAPPY WITH THE DEVELOPER RESPONSE. I’m currently going to run this up the Apple flagpole to get my issue resolved! At this point, I wouldn’t recommend the app unless the developer fixes my issues. I went from 5star rating to 1star and less if I could!

I still like you

I have to admit that I still like this app. I am finding that I want to use it more now that I trade the markets. I can go to Trading View website through UPad and use the note taking features of this app to capture critical trades I make. I can take a screenshot of the trade, make notes and treat them as 'journal entries', which allows the option to retrieve my notes later in one central location. What a timesaver when making decisions on a trade in a short timeframe. So, I have to say to the developer, I've always liked your app and I felt it necessary to leave this review for a fair assessment for anyone thinking about getting it.
