  • Great App keeps getting better!

    By Trent G
    Love Notability’s latest update. Made a great app even better. My wife and I do mission and relief work in developing nations. This app has helped me submit “in field’ reports for our relief projects so much faster. I can now write out notes in the field, convert them to text and email them out to our project sponsored. This time saving feature allows me more time WITH the people we are helping and LESS time in the office creating reports. Thank you Notability!
  • 8.0 is absolutely amazing

  • Love it

    By elline97
    I love everything about this app. My iPad and Apple Pencil is pretty much the only thing I need to college anymore. I have replaced all the notebooks with this one and i can easily access my notes from my computer. The only thing I would change is that I would love for there to be a collaborative feature like the app scribble together except that when one person goes down the page the other writer shouldn’t have to be on the same page. I would love for it to look like a google doc where you can see who’s writing and where. This would be very useful when working together on homework and such. It would be easier for me because then I wouldn’t need multiple apps👍 I think that would help the ratings go even higher and hit #1, we are not from it.
  • New update is bad! Sorry!

    By OfflineDreams
    Hey guys, I appreciate the update, but ints no intuitive. Try copying Bear app swipe from left gesture. The new gesture is jarring to use. Just my opinion, hope you guys will improve upon this update.
  • Incredible!

    I use this app on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil for my college classes and it has made my life so much better. The ease of use and functionality is unmatched. I highly recommend this beautiful app.
  • WHAT?

    By Ole Mithaugen
    I haven’t been paying much attention to update when suddenly I realize that my Notability App is awesomely different. I have been a long time user of this app and have loved it since day one. I have experimented with other note taking apps but very quickly return to this workhorse of an app. Now with the latest update I am blown away! I love to write with my apple pen and being able to convert to text is extremely useful. So far it has been flawless in conversion; however I am old school in my penmanship so that my work in my favor. Being able to put notes side by side? Since I convert all documents into files in Notability for meetings, to be able to pull up other documents alongside of the notes I am taking is absolutely amazing. One thing that I am watching and am unsure of yet is that in watching battery consumption Notability seems to have suddenly become my primary drain, outstripping my FaceBook app. So this is something that I will be watching since I tend to leave Notability running in the background. But overall I want to give a big shout of thanks to the developers for making a great app even better.

  • Edited review. Really huge improvement !!!!!

    By Aloriccc
    I love that you guys implemented the side by side notes and the possibility to search my own letter and convert it in text if I wish. The update 8.0 made me enjoy more this app. However I’m still wishing there was a tool for making triangles, circles , squares etc. Although you already have that implemented on the app is not as good as others in as tried. It will be better if you put that tool on the menu bar on top of the note so we don’t have you go to different section of the note just to make any geometric figure and the worst part of this, it’s when you do the figure from the tool you have and you put it on the note it seems like it doesn’t belong to the note and this is just because it looks like you just paste and image on the note. I hope I made myself clear to you guys. Thanks,
