More Stable than Goodnotes 5

I've been using Notability to take handwritten notes for a few months now, but I decided to give Goodnotes 5 a try, because it had other features that Notability was lacking: 1) clear page separation (which is helpful for printing), 2) horizontal scrolling, 3) better file organization, 4) better highlighter, 5) option between partial and full-streak eraser, and 6) better shapes. I ultimately went back to using Notability despite all these features, because 1) Goodnotes required you to do a pull gesture (which was highly inconvenient) to flip to a new page, in comparison to Notability's infinity scroll which would automatically start a new page for you, 2) no audio recording (I'm a student so this is essential for lectures), 3) noticeable handwriting lag on notes that are over 50+ pages, and 4) no multi-note split view. Overall, I feel like Goodnotes gives you a more skeuomorphic real notebook feel, with the way that it organizes your notes into a notebook, simulates how you would flip pages, and gives you the freedom to separate them into folders. And, this might be something to consider if you will be using them to study. However, the handwriting lag is a dealbreaker for me, and I definitely will have no notes to study because the lag is so irritating, despite all of the useful features. Thus, I highly recommend Notability because of its stability and simplicity to use.

Easy to use

I’m using notability post nursing school to help me study for my NCLEX. I also just got an iPad recently too. I wanted to make my studying easy and accessible anywhere. Whether on the bus or waiting for someone. Notability is very simple to use so if you are like me and like something that is basic and simple then this is the app ! I read some negative comments but got it anyways and I’m glad I did. I am able to put some study books on the app as well as other pdf books. It’s easy to pass notes via airdrop from my other devices and share documents on my iPhone etc if I want my iPad notes on there. If I don’t- it’s like a clean slate on my iPhone notability. I can have 2 different sets of notes basically if I want more business or personal related goal notes on my phone rather than all my iPad notes.

So if you are in school- this is very simple, easy, and legit way to use notes. I even have a digital planner on it too which is amazing. I feel more inspired to be creative and do my goals for the day. If you have a keyboard you can type your notes Incase you don’t want to write but I love to highlight, mark notes, and bookmark certain pages to make it easier to find. I do use the split screen option at times but depends on your study preferences. I like to read first, study, then create a note and hand write my notes to make sure I got the info down.
