  • Best in class

    By Re-view-er7
    Top-notch app for note taking with the smoothest handwriting experience I have yet to encounter on the iPad Pro. Nothing beats the combination of ease of use and stability in this app. I wouldn't have survived grad school without it. Great customer service that is helpful and responsive, and a solid trend of well-thought out updates have been a mainstay since I first got this app several years ago. Highly recommend with a Pro and a Pencil.
  • Poor ios11 integration

    By Revieking
    App consistently freezes, won’t load, and quits unexpectedly. Lost a whole day of medical school notes from it crashing. Would like to see it return to its old iOS 10 functionality, will update to 5 star when that happens.
  • Pretty Good!👍

    By egl8896
    I ❤️LOVE❤️Notability but I have one problem the colors you can write and draw with. I use Notability for school and art work and when I draw I get kinda upset because the colors aren’t the best to draw with because the are a little standard. But besides that I LOVE Notability!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Very disapointed

    By The awesome3639
    This app was great for one week and a half, after that my notes would no longer open because “it was being downloaded from iCloud” the download would never come to an end and it makes no sense that the app wouldn't keep a local copy, it basically useless trying to go back to see your notes without wifi. I ended up not having access to my class notes and test reviews which are EXTREMELY important to me. Save your money and use a notebook or a more secure app.
  • Great app, but there is improvement area

    By Grzelaska
    Thanks for this awesome app. Please improve one thing. I will try to explain what I experienced. First I typed, than I placed 3-4 pictures and made notes on them. Than I repeted it couple of times. When I returned to the beginning and wrote more lines on the dirst chapters the pictures got complitely messed up. I wish they would go down with the text. Anyways since I was working on a 9 pages instruction manual with pictures it got messed up many times and I had to move manually all the pictures couple of times. Great app, but PLEASE, PLEASE FIX IT :-) thank you!
  • Ppt not working

    By Bobbyh657347
    I bought this app for class so I can mark up PowerPoints. The first week it worked now when I try to load the power points in from Dropbox or google it says unable to unpack. Disappointed since the only reason I bought this app for it does not deliver on the task.
  • Please add (laser) pointer functionality

    By Desireviewer
    This is an incredibly useful app and has been an essential app on my iPad for several years. I use it to deliver presentations while annotating and to record videos with real time annotations. However, one feature that is missing that would make it very useful while recording presentations wherein we are annotating pdf or writing text would be a “laser pointer” button wherein we can press the pencil to anywhere on the screen and it would show a red/green dot there. There are other apps that do this but that do not have no way near the features that notability has - I wish notability would add a pointer feature.
  • Great students resource

    By Millam26
    As a student I always have a lot on my plate and notability helps me keep everything together in one place. It’s great to be able to send my hand written notes as pdf’s to others.
