  • Getting me through college - WITH AN iPAD!!

    By KIrkDouglasSD
    First off, kudos for making a KILLER APP! I started school last semester dumping tons of money into a new computer but little did I know that this gem of an app would make my iPad pro the ONLY device that I need. I have the keyboard for typing, the pencil for writing and with the latest update I can’t wait to try the handwriting recognition! I must say, the best $10 i’ve ever spent on an app, HANDS DOWN! After starting college as an adult, 15 years after high school I had no idea i’d be able to carry a lightweight iPad and just a couple of accessories to do all that I need. My handwritten notes look so good on this app that my classmates ask me to email my notes to them and recording the lectures has made reviewing so easy with my busy schedule. I’ve tried them all and trust me, this app is truly the killer note-taking solution. Just buy it, you won’t regret it. Overall very stable, excellent backup options and i’m telling you the handwriting looks so good and the built-in recording just makes it a must. DO IT!!

    Use notability all the time for school and can’t wait to dive into the features in 8.0 update!
  • Notability is now the reigning champ for note taking!

    By lspencer2011
    I’ve emailed the development team a few times about ideas, the biggest of which were the handwriting search as well as side to side note. They finally implemented this and this is by far the best performing app. The convert to text is also amazing. At this point, this is the closest to perfect we can get
  • Working flawlessly

    GREAT app.
  • Handwriting recognition rocks

    By NicknameZ
    This updates is the best and cements the app as one of my absolute must recommend for any iPad user. The fact that it goes back and indexes your old written notes is a pleasant surprise. Now if they just would just release a system wide keyboard module you could install when you have Notability on your iPad.
  • Stay Away

    By RTG7
    If you are a creative person who puts deals down as they come, stay away...two days of work lost...back up you say? Did...gone...too many glitches, too many bugs...
  • Latest Update Crashes After Indexing

    By BlayneD
    After indexing, the app immediately crashes. Each subsequent launch results in a crash. Rebooting the phone does not resolve the issue.
  • Best app for note taking

    By NeemaCJ
    I love the beautiful pen options, best audio recording quality and ease of use. If they include the handwriting search/recognition, I’d be happy to pay for it.
  • Holy S**t

    The 8.0 update is awesome. The app can now read my hand writing about 70% of the time and split screen notaking is great. Bought this app 6 years ago and never regret is.
  • Eraser

    By T-Money Time
    I love this app and would give it 5 stars if I was able to change the function of the eraser from erasing the entire line I erased partially, to being able to erase only what I physically erase. Also needs some other improvements that I don’t really want to list since everyone already has.
