This puts Apple’s stock Notes app to shame!

I rarely do reviews, but I can honestly say that I have been in love with this app for several years now. It has every feature, well, except one I can think of, that I, personally, could ask for in an app like this! I love the tagging, the customization (personal wallpapers for folder), the easy PDF converter/sharing, the easy app integration with other apps…the list goes on. The only feature I would like, and to be honest, I don’t even think you can do it with any app other than the ones that come in the phone (maybe not), is when you search for something on the main screen of your actual phone it doesn’t seem to search through the app. I was looking for some information I know I had saved the other day, but I could not recall where I had saved it. I had to open the app and search within here to find it. Frustrating because I almost gave up thinking maybe I didn’t save the information in the first place. I thought apps used to be able to do this without having to open them, but I can’t recall anything anymore. Again, maybe I’m doing something wrong, but it’s not the worst thing. All the other features out surpass that one negative thing in my opinion. Totally worth, at the very least, checking out!!

This is amazing! But it just needs a few more!

I’ve downloaded a bunch of journaling apps and I absolutely love this one for notes too. I love the interface and the organization of it. I like to write down all my thoughts because I don’t have the friends to share them with. Despite the amazing appeal of it, there isn’t much you can do when it comes to writing. You’re not able to change the font of certain areas or highlight anything. I love being able to add audios and be able to draw but when it comes to the scribbling part, you’re making a separate photo rather than actually drawing on the notes that you wrote. What I think would make this app be one of the best note taking apps if they were able to add the ability to highlight text, change fonts, change the color of text, and be able to draw ON the text. It really upsets me that I’m other apps I’m required to pay them even though I can just do the same thing for free on an art program and also do the same exact thing easily for free with a real notebook and some pens, or on google docs we’re able to highlight and change the colors and all that. This addition would especially be helpful for me and many others during the pandemic since most of us are online learners.

Very good. 👍👍

Has been a good note taking app, but was always a bit glitchy when navigating a work in progress. This seems to have improved just lately though. Has some nice features, which work very well. This is why I’ve continued using it over some others. Lately though a number of app makers are going the way of some other greedy app developers by changing to subscription’s. Subscriptions are for magazines, who have totally new content every month. "Most apps don’t." I’ve never had a subscription app, and I never will. I will pay a fair one time price, for a good, and well supported app… I’ve now been informed that everything with the current non subscription plan will remain the same as it was, and you can still write notes up to 30MB, Upload files of a size up to 100MB, Get 24x5 support via Email, Community forum and access to the NB knowledge base, Get Complete offline access to your notes, Rollback to any of the past 10 versions of any notecard, Setup recurring reminders to your notecard, Lock your notes, Private Share and much more… So from the response that I and others have received, I’ve gathered that they are assuring us that we will continue to have all the same features and great support we’ve become accustomed to.

Hi Krug J, We can understand how you feel about the app. The free version of the app would still remain same and we've not compromised any features we provide you on free for a paid plan. We're not going to change the whole app to a paid one. You get to use all the existing features on the app with the same free version. It's just that you have to go for a paid plan for extended features and services we offer you. You can still write notes, Upload files, Get support, Set up Recurring Reminders, Get Offline access to notes, Lock them and much more. And we can assure you that we odder you best features in free version as well as in paid when compared to other competitors. We can still compete with any free app with the features we provide. We hope you understand our concept and reconsider your rating.
