  • Left Handed Suggestion

    By AsobitaiJon
    Love the app, it makes note taking a cinch, but I’ve got one suggestion for left handed mode. When writing, I tend to drag my hand and doing so on the left border pulls up a menu and doesn’t register my input. I’d suggest moving that to the right hand side and moving the right side menu that only opens on a button touch to the left side for the convenience of all left handed users.
  • PowerPoint fix

  • Nice app but needs a few things...

    By nashben87
    I’ve used Notability for 3 semesters in college now and find that it makes my iPad the most useful device I’ve ever purchased (I use it more than my phone or computer). However, because this is an Apple only application i feel that it would be better suited with some of the intuitive features one would find in an Apple only Application. For instance, if I have 2 notes that I feel at a later date contain enough overlapping information, I might like to merge them into a single note without having to re-download a copy of one into another via cloud storage. The convenience of being able to merge a note by “holding down” the note, as if to duplicate, would save a lot of time. As polished as the app is, I find myself saying to often, “I wish this app could do this or that.” As developers, please find out what these things are and add them as features. A few things the app is missing: -Easily merge notes -Ability to change the scalable circle into a different shape with a side gesture (applications for organic chemistry) such as a pentagon or hexagon. -Ability to select multiple pages at a time from the “all pages” view for copy and paste into a seperate note.
  • Thank you for keeping this application up-to-date and ...

  • Great for the most part

    By ^w^ teddy
    This is a great note taking app that allows you a platform to be able to take written/typed notes while recording audio. They are always coming up with updates to improve it which is great. Two minor updates that I hope they will incorporate soon is being able to highlight text without it overlapping in opacity the way it does and adding more color options/designs the for pages (which is long overdue).
  • Love this app but highlighting part

    By EllaY L
    I love this app in general, but one thing. When I highlighted something, the stuffs I wrote before becomes lighter. I don’t know if it’s possible, but hopefully you can send the highlighting color to the back and bring the writing notes to the front layer.
  • How is this not a five-star app?

    By Josephoregon
    This app is easily a five-star app, no questions. It is the best note taking app I have ever used and I am one who likes to test all my options according to the value it might bring. And daily note taking was a high value so I tested several apps and there is none that compares to this one. This app is very intuitive! It makes me feel like I am taking notes on paper, yet gives me options to make it feel like a high-tech notebook. Love it.
  • Trouble backing up

    By RPH STUDENT 12345658
    So i upload all my notes to the iCloud and everytime i open it, it takes at least 20 minutes for all my notes to load. While studying the notes are backed up again and prevents me from studying and this doesn’t go away for another hour. FRUSTATING!!
  • iCloud Sync

    By Tmac152
    Pleaseeeeeeee fix this iCloud sync. There was no problem until recently and now I can’t take notes or look at my old notes since this started.
  • So amazing, and versatile, needs 1 thing

    By pennypo
    Notability is the app I use everyday, all day. I love it. It makes note taking so easy. I love that I can create my own custom palate of ink colors now, which was something I wanted. However, Notability would be vastly improved by having a dotted line feature. Sometimes, I don’t want to have a solid line that points to things, or surrounds things, and it would be really nice if we could have dashed or dotted lines that we could customize. Also, not necessary, but OneNote has these rainbow sparkly metallic colors, and basic metallic colors, that I am quite envious of. But those would just be amazing, but unnecessary. The dashed/dotted lines are.
