Excellent App, but needs a little more to make it Perfect!
I began using this app as a simple way to take notes on pdf files. As I explored its abilities for generating notes and diagrams, I discovered some really useful features as well as a few that need to be better. I would love to be able to group objects together similar to the way PowerPoint does. The app allows you to layer drawing for items and text, however, if you have too many layers or layers close together (i.e. trying to make a box with equally spaced lines or hash marks) it is impossible to go back and select a single image. Also, I would love to have the ability to under line, bold or italicize text that I created within the text box. When typing notes, I would like the ability to provide emphasis without having to draw or manually add underlining. Please keep updating this app!!!! It is so close to being the one stop app for note taking and creating study aids! Thank you.
Most Used App on my iPad
I work as a proofreader and copy editor for a science fiction author. I have used this app for years. The author and I do not live near each other, and we do everything electronically. She sends me a manuscript as a PDF document which I then load into Note Taker HD. It loads a 400 page document in a matter of seconds. I read through the document making notes as I go along. After I have edited a chapter, it is very simple to have Note Taker display only the pages which I have marked up. I then export only those pages and send them back to the author as a PDF document, which she uses to incorporate my changes into her master manuscript.
Note Taker provides many options for highlighting in different colors and writing remarks in different colors to call attention to problem areas. It is also simple to include photographs, drawings, sketches and any other thing that you would like to include. Once they have been incorporated into your document you can then write on them, draw or whatever you need to do.
I highly recommend this app for anybody who does intense work with PDF documents!
VERY useful app
UPDATE: December, 2017 - I need to upgrade to iOS 11 for the new major release of another app that's important to me, but if I upgrade, I'm afraid that that this program won't work, as mentioned by someone who tried it (in their review here).
This is distressing because this is an absolutely rock-solid app programmed by one of the earth's great programmers. I don't want to lose this app. Don't know what to do...
Original review: Wow, these guys have thought of EVERYTHING. And even more impressive, they've made it simple to use. I use it every day, and have deleted several other note apps. This is all I ever use, and I use it all the time. It works fantastic with my brand new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil - beautiful ink - and has a slider to protect writing in unintended areas...
If you want to use it simply, and intuitively, you can do that, right off the bat, like I did. If you want more functionality, then it is right there for you. If you want to delve into the Help Files, they are well-written and easily understandable.
I recommend this above all others, both for professionals in the office, and for folks at home - from sketching out plans for a new invention, to taking notes at meetings, to jotting down recipes.
I think this would be the most useful app for everyone from kids (think Etch-A-Sketch) to cartoonists, stay-at-home Moms to stay-in-space astronauts!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
