  • Ultimate School Necessity

    By Future Dr F
    I’ve used Notability throughout undergrad for biology and chemistry majors and am currently a 3rd year veterinary student. It is a MUST HAVE!!!!! Can’t be a successful student without it. ONE CRITICISM: the application needs an additional layer for organizing Notes. For example: -Semester 1 -Physiology 1 -Cardiac Physiology -all -my -cardio -Notes -Neurophysiology -all my Notes as above -Anatomy 1 -skull anatomy -etc -Histology -bone -etc -etc -Integument -etc -etc -Semester 2 -Parasitology -Nematodes -etc -etc -Physiology 2 -Renal Physiology -etc -etc Adding an EXTRA LAYER for organizing my Notes would be the BEST possible upgrade. Otherwise, the app is almost perfect.
  • Long time user

    By Theisslj
    Had the app since it came out for $2. It’s been a while. The app has made a lot of improvements including shape features and an extended color palette. Some features I would like to see: a presentation mode that tracks with the writer, I.e. for a professor in a lecture hall, a video recording option to export, improved shape features and 2D-CAD-like options for creating those geometries, and also a real time collaboration sharing option like google drive utilities for its office apps. The app has come a long way. It has a lot more potential to develop and do so before competition.

  • I get excited when I take notes now!!!

    By Jenny wardrobe
    This app is so helpful and it helps me engage in my learning. It’s easy to manage. You have make folders and subdividers in that folder. You can change the theme. You can change the type of paper (plain, dot, grid, etc.) I love that you can export any document into this app. You can also have 2 documents/notes opened at the same time!!
  • Best note taking app that i’ve used thus far

    By Bronze Bond
    As a self taught wanna be programmer abroad (living in Beijing) carrying pounds of notebooks around is too much of a task. This app has awesomely reduced the effort it takes to notate and study the multiple things I’m into. I don’t have many complaints outside the fact that i’ll try to scroll up and it will rarely be unresponsive. Yet this rarely, rarely happens. This app is great for organizing thoughts and studying
  • Fab-tastic

  • Best note taking app ever.

    I’ve tried them all. This one has become part of my personal and business workflow. Tons of great features and they keep adding more. iCloud syncing is absolutely indispensable as all my info is always with me.
