  • Crashing

    By Lucille 01
    This app for some reason keeps on crashing for no apparent reason. I have to take something that should take 5 minutes and make it into an hour because of these crashes. Please release an update to fix it.
  • I wanted to love it...

    By Gina_marie45
    I just downloaded the app and it had every feature you would want. you can add audio to your notes, convert your handwritten notes to text, search the text, and add photos. The only drawback, the biggest drawback, is that when I try to write with my stylus pen if I rest my palm on the screen the words ERASE as I write them which is really frustrating. I got this app mainly for the handwriting feature. I have the settings on correctly but It still doesn’t solve the problem. if this was fixed this app would be perfect... but until then 1 star. Sorry.

    I am finally excited to use Notability for school! This really helps to color code things better and I noticed the new update did improve many other things.
  • Apple Pencil Off/On Pain

    By fieldtripz
    It’s difficult to use with both fingers and the Apple Pencil. Why do I have to Disconnect the pencil? I’m having trouble figuring out how to reconnect it to this app. It never disconnects from the iPad, but this app is a pain to work with both fingers and the Apple Pencil. It does NOT reconnect automatically, even after I unpair and repair the pencil to the iPad. Please fix.
  • Good app

    By Cmandude1
    It’s a really good app but I wish there was an easier way to redo and undo instead of having to hold the undo button to hit redo
  • Question to developers

    By Med student in hell
    I have mild OCD and want to delete one of my new custom colors. I have two bubbles of the same color and would like to remove one of them. Is this possible? If so, how? I love the app otherwise, but this one issue is really bugging me.
  • A few additions

    By Nickytit
    The app has been great from the day I started using it. With the addition of the “snap to” straight line feature, that has been huge while writing on graph paper! With that feature in mind is there a way to implement that with circles? Like if you were to draw a circle and hold the pencil down it would snap to a perfect circle and then you could increase/decrease diameter by moving the pencil in or out. Also could you implement the eraser with different sizes and a new feature where the path only erases rather than the entire line drawn? Keep up the great work!
  • Amazing but room for improvement

    By _luckyduck_
    I really wish i could collaborate on a document with other people. I loved the new update for being able to create a color. I used this app for about 3 years going on 4 for school and i don't think anything could beat it.
  • Strange curve while writing

    By mynicknamehehe
    Disappointed. Strange curve while writing, the pencil is acting weird when using this app. However wiring in notes which is pre installed in iOS is perfectly fine. Anyone has the same issue?
  • Features Suggestion

    By Sahil Mithwani
    11/15/18 Update: Edit option is broken. Can’t edit handwriting, covert to text, crop images etc. PLEASE FIX! Thanks I love this app. It’s smooth and easy to use. Some features I hope make it into the app in the future is hexagonal sheets to help with science notes and the ability to keep the color when converting from handwritten to test. I’ll write in several colors and all will convert into default black. Still useful though.
