Take notes easily with QuickNotes X. Organize your handwritten notes in folders and notebooks with a selection of covers and paper templates and export them as PDF or PNG images.

Create notebooks to organize your notes. Choose between a selection of paper templates and covers, and choose between vertical or horizontal layout to fit your note-taking needs. You can also rearrange your notebooks and create folders for them for maximum flexibility.

QuickNotes X has a new accurate drawing engine that never loses detail, even after zooming or moving around the page. It also has the tools necessary to take perfect professional notes, all in one place.

With QuickNotes X, you can easily create multi-media notes: use an image as the background of your note, or import images from your library or from the web with an in-app tool or by using drag & drop from another window. In addition, these images are always resizable and movable, so that you can edit them whenever you want

To create the perfect note, you need the right tools. This is why QuickNotes X has everything you need, from the simple Pen and Highlighter to the Eraser, so that no mistakes are irreversible. Select the perfect line width and opacity to further customize your style, and select the color you need from a hand-picked selection or by using the new HSV picker. You can even import a color from an image using the unique RealityPicker!

Want to restrict access to a specific notebook? Just set up a password when you create it or long press on an existing notebook to lock it. And when you need to add some pages to it, just enter the password again or use Touch ID or Face ID to unlock it.

With the new Text Tool you can add Text Boxes to your notes, so that you are able to type instead of writing. Want a different text style? Choose the font, size and color you like, underline or set to bold important things: now typing and writing notes is easier with QuickNotes X.

You can export individual notes or entire notebooks as a QuickNotes X Document, that you can then import on another device to continue editing your notes. If you export your notebooks they will retain all properties, such as background and aspects ratio, so that if you reimport them they will look exactly as you expect.

Export your note as a PNG image or PDF, with the option to export the whole notebook in a single PDF document. Then, open it in your favorite app or share it with Mail, all with a few taps.

Have a Bluetooth stylus? No problem! QuickNotes X support a variety of styluses, from the Apple Pencil (1st & 2nd Generation)* to Adonit Jot, so that you can take notes while resting your palm on the screen, just like on paper.

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.

Great but one flaw

This app is great and perfect for taking notes while keeping them organized by subject. The only flaw there is would be the fact that I can’t use my 🍎Pencil to change the tools. I have to switch to my finger to (ex. ) change to the eraser or to change colors. That makes it annoying to deal with while I’m trying to keep track of what is being said during my classes.

Needs improvement.

I just downloaded this app, and I found out that it doesn’t even have some features in markup on photos! Like the scissors feature, you draw a circle around your drawing, and you can delete it, move it around, and in notability, you can even change its look!
Also, in this app, for almost everything, we have to pay. Suppose you want more than two notebooks, you have to pay. Even if you want to use a text box, you have to pay. Even with the BASIC colors, you have to pay. I like notability better than this.
