I used to write in Samsung Notes when I had a Samsung tablet. After having iPad I searched a lot to find a similar app for writing and QuickNotes was better than the others for my purpose. Although I still miss Samsung Notes, I am getting used to QuickNotes. I keep journaling so it’s nice to have the feature that one can create different notebooks with different covers. I also wanted an app that I could have simple environment and this app have it all. However, I like to write with a brush having pencil texture. It would be so great to add pencil brush to the brush menu. There is something that is a little irritating, stylus and finger touch are active simultaneously and this makes an unwanted zooming or brush strokes when I try to write with stylus. Could you please add an option to turn off finger touch completely. Thank you
After a while, I’d like to post a review again and add to my previous one. I found out how the finger touch can be turned off and get it out of the way of stylus pen. It’s simply by turning on the Bluetooth connection while in the settings menu writing only with Apple pen is on. In this way there is no unwanted strokes with finger and you can use finger touch only for turning the pages.

Very User friendly, but lacking in some features

TLDR - Easy to use and very helpful for organization. Missing some features that are not essential for use, but would be a convenient and pleasant addition in the future.

The notebook organization system and the ease of changing writing utensil, page format, and incorporating images is noteworthy. It is also very easy to export notebooks in various formats (though the premium expansion is needed for some of the aforementioned features). It also works incredibly with the Apple Pencil.
However, there are some relatively common features that are currently missing, and could be helpful if added in the future.
-To my knowledge, there is no method to reorder pages, only add and remove.
- There is also no ruler tool, which has some niche cases where it would be helpful. While I understand it wouldn’t not be a significant priority for most users, I am surprised that even the paid tools do not compare with the included markup tools on Apple’s iBooks
-There is also no ability to copy and paste a portion of a page or a whole page, which can be helpful when weighting lengthy equations or statements
-there is no ability to separate or move specific selections of writing around the page, even though text and images can be moved as overlays

Overall, I like the app a lot, and I feel it has a lot of potential. However, there are many features I have seen in competitor’s apps that are missing.

Love the simplicity aesthetic layout just need minor adjustments

Overall love how simple the layout is on the app and I’m definitely planning to buy the full pack. Just my one thing as I’m writing with my Apple Pencil and my Adonit dash my palm is creating a master piece of line work below as I’m writing lol. I use the app to brainstorm my new ideas and art projects like how I would do on a normal notebook. And transferring to another app thru pdf very convenient i can keep organized thru my apple files. My reason giving 4 stars it’s missing palm rejection function when I’m writing with my Apple Pencil. Other than that I do enjoy using the app
