So, I've been using this app for two years on both my MacBook and my iPad, and I have championed it the entire time. I LOVED this app. So imagine my disappointment when my iPad began perpetually downloading my notes, unable to open any of my 1000 documents. I'm in med school, and it's very important that I have relaible access to my notes. Until a few months ago, I thought this was the app. But as I sit here, unable to review for my exam tomorrow, I think I'm going to start the transition to OneNote. It's really a shame that since appearing on the editor's choice list on the app store, they've stopped trying.
I reallt want to like Notability and it could be a fantastic app, but it has frustrating bugs, it is inconsistent across platforms and is not that user-friendly.
When I have notability open on my ipad and my macbook at the same time and making edits, it causes my macbook to crash. In which then my macbook doesn’t start again until a day later. Why does this app cause my laptop to CRASH?!!!! PLEASE FIX THIS!!! For all the boasting notability does about syncing between devices, it doesn’t even let me use two devices simultaneously without one of the devices crashing and shutting down!
Literally every other note I make gets "lost" / erased a few days after I have completely slaving over that particular lab / lecture, so irritating!
literally does not show your PDFs - white pages only... no text. Makes duplicates all the time, now I have 3x the notes I once had... I want less school work, not more. The only place this app is useful fore is... [still thinking]. #fail
It keeps crashing every time I try to open it. Terrible quality.
I never write reviews! I loved notability..until one day it decided to update and suddenly I was unable to open any of my files, all of them turned up with an error message and contacting Notability and icloud support did not work... I stopped using notability immediately
Please update the computer version. I've been using Notability in all the versions but the computer version is not loading the documents promptly.
I used Notability on my ipad for four consecutive years in high school. I was required to use it daily by my school and it never seemed to fail me. When I started attending university this year, I decided to buy a MacBook Air. Being a loyal customer, I payed for Notability on my Macbook as well. However, this application runs horribly on my Macbook. Everytime I tried to take notes in class, the application would close and I would lose all of the notes I had just typed. I would highly recommend staying away from this product! If you purchase it, you will regret it.
I am a college student and have used Notability between my iPad Pro and Macbook Pro for 4 years now. It's always worked flawlessly and it's been immensely helpful being able to take notes in class on my iPad and then pull them up on my Macbook when working on homework or studying. However, the Macbook app needs updated. For the last few months, every time I go to open a note a message pops up saying that the note was created with a newer version of Notability. It's more annoying than anything and hasn't caused any real problems yet but still needs fixed. Other than that I absolutely adore Notability.
