  • Great but Missing Tools & Features!

    By Stevenrhaz
    I am a big fan of Notability but it needs folders and a reminder feature! Maybe in the form of a little timer icon at the top tool bar to remind me of notes and lists of things to do. Why? Because I add new notes on top of important notes and lose track of everything! Also, Please change Subjects to Folder. Thanks
  • Left hand support

    By yoskin1256742
    This is a great app. And, I hope you’ll make it greater by supporting those who’re lefties. I already see there’s a setting for left hand mode, but I really think you should give us an option of having the note switcher on the right side instead of left. The palm rest works when I write in the middle, but the note switcher pops up always when I try to write on the left side of the screen. Thanks!
  • Way too many problems

    By 84723848927
    When using the writing tool (pencil or pen), I constantly have zooming bugs, or can’t adjust the box size, or end up not being able to see what I write until I exit the writing box and re enter it. For writing by hand the app is okay at best, but when it come to typing it’s the worst app ever. The spell check is the worst I’ve ever seen. If a single letter is off in a word, 90% of the time it changes it to the complete opposite of what I was trying to type or just autocorrects it to a different language... Also, it is extremely hard to put the cursor between two specific letters if I forgot a letter because auto correct won’t just fix it naturally. This app needs a ton of work before you add little features like a perfect circle.
  • Love this app!

    By Ally Binally
    I use this app for college everyday. It is really user friendly and it makes taking notes a breeze! Really wish they would incorporate some kind of flash card feature though so we could quiz ourselves from our notes. Noteability, if you read this, please make an update that allows us to make flash cards! It would be really convenient. Other than that, love the app!!
  • I love notability.... JUST LET ME ADD MORE DIVIDERS!

    By Ari_girl7104
    Having notability has changed how I study and take notes. I am a medical student, so this is a large part of my life. Notability allows me to take notes as I record my lecture, and organize my notes in ways that are meaningful to me. HOWEVER, one of the things that OneNote has on notability is that I can divide my dividers. For example, I am currently taking epidemiology and biostatistics within ONE class. I would love to have the class tab (overall), further divide that tab into Epi and biostats, AND THEN divide according to weeks/assignments/subjects, etc. I still chose notability over OneNote, but I would love this feature to better organize my notes! Please consider adding this feature.... we would love you forever!

  • Started great, now glitchy

    By Kugelblitz
    Last semester when I started using this product, I was thrilled with how easy its interface was. I could get most of my homework done using it, and I would never run out of scrap paper. Now however, I can’t work out a simple problem without the zoom function on my iPad being activated two or three times. I also can’t get through a problem without the ink smearing all over the paper either. It seems that notability is not tracking my iPad pencil anymore, and it definitely has no idea what is going on with Apple’s zoom function. And some I saw a five-star experience deliquesce into total lack of satisfaction. Absolute total lack of satisfaction. I cannot express how much I dislike using notability now, and having spent $10 on it it just seems like it’s a total waste of my time and money. I’m extremely frustrated, because it started out so great. But now it just feels like a bad investment and selection bias.
  • Great

    By Love is on the move
    Doesn’t get any better and the fact that the company is attentive to it users, is golden. Maybe it’s that I haven’t been able to find it, but an addition of a way to move text to the foreground, would be great. Seems it can’t be placed over drawings.
  • Please help!

    By KKSteven2938
    Right now using iOS 12.1.4, remaining free storage 6GB, with iCloud sync turned on in a stable wifi environment. Somehow once in awhile, all the notes are removed and must be re-downloaded again. This is understandable when the app needs to refresh the cache, however during a situation where you have to quick access your files on iPad, and it kept presenting “unable to open note” and asking please wait until it finish downloading from iCloud, for three hours without actually downloading them, it could be very frustrating as the only option is to peek notes through your phone, where all the files having no problem to access, but prevents the use of Apple Pencil. So far I have no idea regarding this cause, and a device reboot did not help at all.
