Ratings and Reviews
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
Update messed it up
I used to love this app, I even paid to have access to all of its features. It was perfect to take notes as a college student and even helped me with doing homework. But the once simple and sleek app is now complicated to use and simply looks tacky. My biggest complaint is that after the update the app is now requiring 98 GB of space to run properly. Now, I have a 128 GB iPad, of which I am using about 38 GB. It would seem that I have plenty of room left on my iPad, which I do, but not according to this app. Every time I try to use it now with it requiring 98 GB the app crashes, which is really annoying when trying to take notes in class. It has basically made it so that if I wanted to continue using this notes app I would have to delete everything else off of my iPad and use it solely for this one app. In my opinion this is not worth it and just plain ridiculous. There’s no reason for it requiring so much space on my iPad to run properly as it was never an issue before the update. I will be switching the notes app I use, and I suggest others do as well.
