  • Great App but...

    Ok, I use this app all the time for school. It’s incredible. A must have for any serious students. Here’s my only complain: The audio playback feature has a 1x and 1.5x replay setting. 1x can be too slow at times and 1.5x can be too fast. I wish there was a 1.25x playback option so we could speed up the playback just a little more without the 1.5x option being the next playback setting. Other than this issue this is a great app to have!!!
  • Your latest update removed an essential feature.

    I’ve been a happy user of the app for a long time however a new update has forced me to write a review requesting dev’ feedback. When deleting an audio recording, selecting the 20minute segment and pressing the delete button used to simply delete the recording and maintain the same open pane. Now, pressing delete closes the pane and resets back to the normal view. Any dev, try it out right now. It’s infuriating to have to delete more than 1 recordings. Please hotfix this in the next update, it should not impossible to do. I would bet if you asked other users about their experience with this, they would concur with mine. Once this is resolved, I will update my review to 5 stars.
  • Dashed line feature?

    Hi I am a student at UC Berkeley studying chemistry. My teachers always draw dashed lines on the board and I was wondering if you could add a dashed line feature/ pen. This would make my notes even better! Thanks
  • Best Notetaking App I found

    I’ve been using this app for years, and appreciate all the updates that have occurred since then. This app has sufficed all my note taking needs, in and out of the classroom. One feature I would like to see is the ability to rename recordings, and possibly to attach these recordings to individual pages. One thing I’ve tried doing this semester is have the recording function on while at a lecture, but having numerous recordings in a file that grows daily is difficult with the current set up. If you don’t remember the time stamp or recording number for a particular point, you have to guess and listen for a bit to see if it’s right. It’s either that, or guess based on the date the notes were recorded. If you could at least rename the audio files, the app would be more useful. It would also be nice if you could change the paper style of individual pages, as well as a feature that easily allows you to draw geometric shapes (adding a figure on top of a graph sticky or any other element get tricky when you click on the wrong one. Sometimes because of that, the graph background ends up on top, and the figure behind it, rendering it useless). There aren’t really any visible bugs with this version of the app, Would recommend for someone looking for a suitable note taking app, whether it’s handwritten or type. I think the addition of a few features would make it better.
  • Great for school!

    Just purchased my first iPad because of the newly added support for the 2018 regular iPad. This is such an amazing note taking app that it has already saved me a great deal of time and effort in the first few days that I've been using it. The user interface is simple and intuitive, and the ability to easily bring in content from outside of the app is perfect. Just get this app if you have any interest in using an Apple pencil! Thanks notability!

    Every thing is amazing, however, lack of shortcuts is bothering when using a keyboard. Please add some.

  • Search Function

    Since most recent update, I have been receiving the message “No search results found” no matter what I search. Hopefully there’s a quick fix for this bc I use the search feature often.
