  • Zoom

    By almacabro
    I love the new zoom capability, but could you guys put the zoom percentage back on display when I zoom? I write best at the 247% zooming and now I can’t get that perfect zoom on the first try, it would make the zooming perfect if I could!
  • Pen/Pencil option please?

    By simplelife2019
    This is a very thorough app which I appreciate. The only thing I truly love having that appears to be missing in this app is the option to write with a pencil rather than a pen. If it is possible to add this I would greatly appreciate it!!
  • Best, but not perfect

    Most feature, best performance among note apps. But occasional glitch still exist.
  • Key to College

    By grmiller923
    I take all of my notes on here and the tolls on this app have helped me studying so much. I tell everyone about this app because it's been the key for my studying in college.
  • Great PDF annotation app

    By Xwelder
    After Microsoft nuked OneDrive, i looked for another option that allowed pdf annotation with Apple Pencil and keyboards. Notability is awesome for this and has improved my productivity. I’ve been using this app for a few months now and have yet to have even one glitch. Well worth the purchase price if you are using your iPad for productivity.
  • Great, but not excellent

    By Katreeners
    The features of Notability are amazing, however its performance is a little subpar as of lately. When saving PowerPoints from Blackboard, it seems to cut off the bottom of slides during conversion. I would also love to see them implement the option to import audio files, like Good Note.
  • Very useful

    By Tchahattou
    Great app, thank you!
  • Best of the best.

    This is one of the best apps I have ever used with my Apple Pencil (iPad Pro 11 inch). Love it for journal entries.
  • 98/100

    By _jklee_
    This was THE app that made my iPad and Apple Pencil worth every penny. As a college student, this provides every possible feature I would have wanted in a note taking app. I use this for taking notes, homework and even concept sketch drawings for projects. The one feature that would be really cool would be an integrated calculator where it calculates basic math quickly by highlighting the equation using the lasso tool.
  • Great app, but could use more basic features

    By Jmanf14
    This app is amazing in almost every sense. It has tons of features for taking notes, including the ability to record and see how that audio then corresponds to your notes. However basic tasks need improvement, such as folders and organization. While it is possible to sort notes into folders, it is not efficient. Also, erasing in this app is a pain as you can only erase full pen strokes and not individual points. 4/5 stars for an app that is great, but could use a few more things to make it perfect
