  • Great app. Used often.

    I like especially its easy handling of PDFs. Also its locking ability (even for notes with images and PDFs). Both of these put it above notes.app It replaces voice-memos.app One request is that it replace reminders.app: let me create a note named Reminders, allow me easily to slide-delete individual items, allow that note to show up in Notifications. Maybe even time stamps and an icon badge: ambitious request. Another request is easier cross-platform font-sizing. Currently awkward. Finally, initial load can be painfully slow. Once cached, load becomes more reasonable.

    I love the app but find it very difficult to manage the limited organization options. I wish there were more options to customize folders and have titles be the same but when in a different subject. Other than that this app is worth the money
  • Very useful

    I like the app so much but there are a few things: 1) it would be great if we could set the size of eraser 2) it is very hard to reorder the pages. There should be a bigger window for that and it should allow multiple selection of pages. 3)There should be magnifier to take notes on small spaces while being able to see the overall page.
  • Palm Detection Useless

    Here I am taking the time while in class to write about how unstable palm detection is. It is not worth disabling multitasking features because the structure is so unstable. Good app still for what it does but writing with a stylus has a long long way to go.
  • Follow up feature

    Consider adding a follow up feature. That is, you can highlight a section of your notes and it adds it to a separate To Do list.
  • Almost perfect!

  • Great Note Taking.. sync issue dampens enthusiasm

    I love the App, does everything I want. Easy to export to other file type, drag and drop functionality , different font size etc . Love the app. Only complaint is cloud sync. Got to the point that every time I pulled my iPad out , I had ZERO FILES. They were all in the “unfiled notes section” and in the process of syncing. While in that process, you cannot even READ the note. If I happened to need my notes in a situation where I have no wi fi I would have been screwed. The times this happened was extremely inconvenient but took a few minutes to sync because I had access to wifi . After troubleshooting for a few days I gave up and completely disabled cloud sync.
  • Love it but one thing

    Love it but one thing, in my school we use i for note taking which i love, but you cant double space! I use double space when i hand in essays, how do you do it. I press enter every time it is annoying. Pls fix it, but other wise it is a very good app
  • Love it but this one thing......

    In med school and living this. Easy to import files straight from the web and incorporate my notes into it. BUT... 2 pieces of feedback. 1. I really wish the eraser would allow me to erase parts of my drawings and not just the whole stroke. Pretty please add this option. 2. Really wish I could edit the number of pencils available for quick toggling.
  • Needs bug fixes!

    COMPLETELY unusable since the new iOS update. It has recently erased some of my notes and is constantly trying to sync to the cloud so the notes that haven’t been deleted aren't available for my use, and ALL of my class notes are on this thing. Med student dying over here. 😢
