  • Really Good App!!

    By balec_
    I use this app for notes in college which is super useful and keeps me extremely organized with all its features. One feature that I feel would be extremely useful that sadly notability does not have is a straight line tool which I feel would be very useful for many users in math classes and for general notes.
  • I like the app but not the recent update

    The zoom out feature is fine, but please give us the option/ability to zoom out ONLY to fit to page life before. I liked this feature because it helped me get back to my normal writing size without having to worry about how far to pinch out jus to get to the right size. Zooming too far out is impeding with my workflow. EDIT: You listened. You fixed the issue. Best app ever with the best devs and best support ever. Two stars changed to five. You deserve it.
  • Please add two more features:

    By Vaishali S
    I really love this app!! Please could you add two more features: Non-stroke eraser (erase from in between a line drawn in a single stroke) and make the highlighter go behind the text.
  • Wonderful app, here's some suggestions...

    I really enjoy using the app for all its functionality, I've been using it since I was in highschool to take notes in class. I haven't used it much since highschool but have recently been using it for my work and for Journaling as well. I find the new features they've added to be wonderful. Keep adding shape detection features! What I'd like to see is more features available for the iPhone version so I may take notes with my iPhone X and Adonit Snap stylus while on the go. I'd also like to see a per-notebook preference pane, for example, so I may set that when I start a new entry, it automatically has the specific page theme set for that notebook and default title. Right now I have my default headine as "Journal entry __date__," however, that is not what I want for all my notebooks entries, nor do I want the same theme for the pages in all of them. Thank you developers for all your work and continue making the effort to improve the app! It's greatly appreciated. 😃
  • This works just great

    By clickclickbam
    Used this over the years and it continues to get better and more functional. Downloaded screen overheads and could type and write on the sheets in colors. Others also downloaded the overheads but I could take notes directly on mine. I’ve added photos of work sheets and dry board notes right into my notes. Pulls the information all together. Love this.
  • Arabic support

    By Nawar1976
    I like the App and I can’t work without it but it would be perfect if it’s support Arabic language as well as the other Languages specially in hand writing.
  • Excellent!

    By jeiwbegr
    I researched a good bit and eventually went all digital for pre-med studying with the iPad, Apple Pencil, and notability. The only thing I wish notability had is the ability to rename voice recordings and allocate them to respective notes and subjects. It’s surprising this feature doesn’t exist already, shouldn’t be too bad to code. 5 stars otherwise, great work!!
  • ADD this FEATURE please

    By Ddgehdjx
    Add scrolling page by page like PowerPoint ,pdf expert because for me it is better than the continuous scrolling down while studying because the continuous one seem going to infinity

  • Cloud Notes Needed!!

    By HyenDine
    I really love this app! I do most of my college work on my own and this app helps me keep my notes mobile. The only reason I rated 4-Stars is because I wish the Notes would sync across my devices. Like let me write my notes using the iPad and study them from my iPhone. Otherwise, the app has no issues honestly. Maybe adjust the eraser to act like an actual eraser instead of an undo tool, but other than that it’s pretty close to perfect.
