My notes were deleted even before I synced them

1
So all in all this app is decent minus one issue: the fact that prior to even saving my notes, they were all deleted. I just finished up a tutoring session and was trying to copy and past new picture into my notes on notability, as I usually do. I NEVER logged out of the app, just minimized it. Well, when I went back to paste the picture, about 10 pages of notes were all missing. Now I have to go back and re-listen to a lecture when I initially took phenomenal notes. Giving this app a 1 because this “MINOR” problem could literally ruin a students life. I highly recommend this glitch is fixed. Kk thanks.

All you need

This app has been the most useful I have ever used, hands down. You can do almost anything on it and with it. You can turn hand writing into text, annotate PDF’s, take notes, record classes, meetings, etc while taking notes, and easily record and organize all of your documents, I basically use it to store everything, bills, payments, tax returns, pay receipts, everything. The only thing it cannot do is edit PDF’s, though you can annotate them. Of course if it could do that, all other productivity apps would be obsolete. They should charge $50 for this app and it would be worth every penny, see for yourself, you won’t be sorry!

Forever Uploading/Downloading

I hate this app. I used it all year long and it was fine at first, but now, every single time I open the app, all of my notes need to be redowloaded and are unfiled. So I can never ever get to my notes when I need them. I am in the process of transferring everything to one note. Save your time and frustration and do not use this app.

Excellent note taking and organizer

I gave notability a chance help me organize my work on my iPad and I couldn’t be any happier. Highly recommended.

Love it! Perfect for school!

The only criticism I have is that I wish they had more long press perfect shapes other than straight lines, squares, triangles, and circles. I’d appreciate even a curved line for when I’m graphing. Other than that it’s been absolutely amazing. I never spend money on apps but this has been a dream with school notes. It keeps all my notes in one place, looking perfect and organized. Instead of flipping through pages to find a specific note, I just look it up in the search bar and it recognizes my hand writing! And best of all I can record my lectures in case I need to remember something specific that I didn’t write down! And it syncs the recording to whatever you’re working so it’s easy to find a specific snippet of a 3 hour lecture. I’ve tried goodnote and one note and I still prefer notability. I even have it on my computer so it syncs all my notes. *TIP* You can type with this app but I highly recommend hand writing your notes as it’s proven to be more useful at learning and retaining material!

Needs an Update

I was so happy with this application! I had used it for note taking in my classes. I am still very impressed with everything I can do with the app. However, within the last couple of months, something changed. Now, every time I opened the app all of the documents redone load themselves from the cloud. This process takes a long time and is very inconvenient. I hope they fix this problem, soon. They can give us a set amount of times during the week that we want to back up our documents or at least ask us if we want to.

The best notetaking app — with one suggestion

5
Notability is the best notetaking app I have ever used. I have been using this on an iPad 5 in school before, and now I got it on my iPad Pro. The experience is amazing, it works flawlessly with Apple Pencil and the interface is simple yet effective. However, I do have a suggestion: Add a way to order the notes manually, instead of by date or name. Most of the time its fine, but sometimes I want to order the notes in a specific way but I can’t.

Great Features but Missing Note Organization

3
I love the feel and features of this app, but it’s note organization is not on par with other applications. I would love to have notebooks rather than just subjects.
By Cody Ness

Amazing for grad classes

Love love LOVE this app. My friend recommended it and I took the leap. The only major problem is that when you go up to fix some notes, the highlights and drawings don’t go with it. If they fix that, this app is GOLD
