  • Phenomenal !!

    By BaaronS
    Beautiful design and superb functionality. Nothing else quite like it. Pure joy every time I use this software. Thank you!
  • Highlighter!!

    By Bella21305
    I love this app but I will only give 4 stars because of the highlighter. When you highlight something the words become less defined and easy to read. Please for the love of god fix this feature!! Please make the word stand out on top of the highlighter. I never write a review but I’m hoping in Writing this you guys please fix that feature. Besides that the app is amazing!!
  • Most organized I've ever been

    By Zspecks
    Love this app but Please incorporate a way for people to categorize their notes in each subject any way they want. It only allows 3 options (Name, Modified Date, Created Date). As soon as this happens i will go back and give 5 stars. Also (but less important) would be very helpful if there was a way to create dividers INSIDE of each subject. For instance, I have a lot of courses with pdf readings and written reflections that I upload onto the app. It would be useful if I could separate the two but still keep both under the subject. Overall, great app. Has really helped me become organized.
  • Great Note Taking Ability; Can’t Change Eraser Size

    By Zat66
    I love using this app to take notes in my courses! If you are a college student looking for the easiest and most organized way to take and edit notes, this is the app you need! One problem that seems to be repeatedly frustrating is the fact that you CAN NOT change the size of the eraser. Hopefully the developers fix this in the next update.
  • Icloud sync has problems

    By jiggyjo11
    please please please fix the Icloud sync that the app syncs realtime between mac and Ipad. The only problem in an almost flawless application. 5 stars when fixed
  • Amazing app!

    By Emperor Paul
    This app is absolutely amazing! It’s made note taking infinitely easier for my science and math courses. My only concern is that for some of my higher level classes, we use Greek symbols and they are placed in the professors powerpoints, yet when I send it to notability I get an empty box in place of the Greek letter. While not a big deal on its own, I feel it’d be nice if the software could recognize the Greek symbols from Microsoft PowerPoint. Otherwise I definitely recommend the app. It’s fantastic!!
  • Every time I update I have more bugs

    By K.A.T. 3794
    Every time this app runs an update on my iPad I end up with a variation of functionality bugs. Either frequent freezing of the whole app or handwriting feature, failure to properly load files, not saving my written notes....the list goes on. I paid $10 for this app and use it daily for my notes and studying in professional school. The amount of problems I’ve had lately is unacceptable.
  • Near perfect!!!

    By ArhamA.
    I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to. This app has single handedly made taking and managing notes a breeze. I just have one question, and I say question rather than complain cause I am still not sure if there’s a way to partially erase a stroke made by the pen tool or the highlighter too. I would appreciate if someone could get back to me. It would life a lot easier. I mean I enjoy erasing full stroke just by a touch especially during fast paced notes sessions but sometimes while drawing diagrams I would just like to erase part of a stroke rather than the whole thing. Sorry if all this doesn’t make sense.
  • Glare free screen ?

    By Rxxxxxy
    Love this app have been using it since 2014, graduated with this and started another program all with this app, I am absolutely in love with this. I can assure you that this is one of the most trustworthy apps out there for school work. I really wish they had a feature like the kindle app that would remove the glare of the screen for longer usage and school work.
  • Getting me through graduate school

    By Goblue34
    I’m in a demanding nurse practitioner program at the University of Michigan and this app is absolutely incredible. I take notes in class on the Mac book app and access them on my phone at any time.
