  • Glitch in new update causes screen to freeze

    By NN224r
    I’m not sure what changes were made in the most recent update, but I do know that they are causing my iPad to have issues. While I’m on the app or have it open and it’s not in use, my iPad will freeze and lock itself. If I’m on the app, some of my notes will be erased, and I have to write them all over again. I’ve been using notability for years now through high school and now college. But, I am now considering investing in a different app because of the glitches in the update. So, please notability fix these glitches and save a college student from investing in another app.
  • Amazing

    By Momomtz
    I’ve been using this app since my second semester. But If we could really bring back when we could merge 2 PowerPoints it would be perfect ! Sometimes I don’t get the power point on time, so I would record it first, and then I’ll merge it with the power point, and now I have to use 2 separate pages.
  • Need a way to delete duplicates

    By Bowlerboii
    This app is amazing, I have used it for the past 3 years in college. Recently I had to restore my iPad and re-download everything. When I did, noteability duplicated all 300+ or my notes, so now I'm stuck with double the amount of notes on my iPad and iCloud. There is no easy way to delete duplicates so I guess ill have to live with it for now. I feel like there should be a way to delete duplicates though.
  • Social anxiety at its worst

    By Superfirenova
    Really? Crashed twice in this class when its been 30 minutes? YOU'RE MAKING ME LOSE NOTES!
  • Zoom and Toolbar location

    By corianne.strupp
    The zoom writing feature and task bar were reversed several updates ago. I thought I would get used to it, but I often hit unintended buttons while writing, which slows note taking and even stops the recording, which I often rely on! Please allow us to select the toolbar location.
  • 我希望增加添加表格的选项。高度,宽度,表格里的数量自定义功能。

    By _ncel
    在画表格时候自己画的表格很难看,希望增加一个何以自定义的表格长度与宽度,表格线的宽度与颜色的选项,这样就不用我自己画表格了。类似于这样的还有圆形,扇形等等用于数学方面的笔记。 Notability很优秀,但我相信它可以做得更好。
  • Love it! The must-have app for students

    By QNNDuke
    Knew of it through a YouTuber. Downloaded and since then I have used it for all of my classes. Works perfectly with the Apple Pencil. Sync nicely with all other apps and one on my MacBook. Love the Note Switcher letting me use 2 notes at once. Lastly, the recording plays as the note being typed. Highly recommend!

    By Doey J
    Don’t get me wrong. This is a fantastic app. Used on iPad for years as a college student and continue using on iPhone. Best I’ve seen on the app store, really could not ask for more. With one caveat: On iPhone version, YOU CANNOT NAME INDIVIDUAL NOTES. WHY? it is the most basic operation in terms of organization and they just seemed to overlook it. Perfect app besides this. Fix it and I will definitely change to 5 stars. Edit: Feature is there, just hard to find. Good work Notability!
  • this app rocks

    By KEVVYstar
    i love taking notes with this app using the apple pencil because it is intuitive and allows for instant access to notes anywhere via other devices. i also use the app for creating beautiful (physics) homework assignments. this allows me to do homework anywhere if say i have an extra ten minutes between meeting, or on short breaks at work. there are two features that i do wish were available however. First, a shape tool would be very useful. it could be as simple as the text/pencil/eraser/buttons with presets of common shapes (circles, rectangles, etc). Second, handwriting to text works great. How about audio/voice recording to text for searchability of audio recordings? Lastly, it would be very useful to be able to erase portions of drawn lines rather than erasing the whole pen stroke. Thanks notability!
  • So versatile

    By A Kellett
    I use this app for my crochet patterns, genealogy research, and note taking for e-learning courses. I am so impressed with the handwriting to text feature, and the seamless organization. My only request is I would love to have the ability to choose the cover image for each file, especially for my crochet patterns and genealogy notes.
