  • Compatibly with Adonit Pixel

    By collegestudentlilly
    I am in love with this app- the only issue I have is that it is not compatible with any Bluetooth stylus other than the Apple Pencil. As a college student with an iPad Air 2, the Pencil is not an option. Please consider adding this feature to the app, it would make note taking so much easier!
  • Needs one more thing

    By AliAdel96
    Love the app. Only thing missing is a file manager system. Would love to make folders within folders, and have more than one note with the same name. Other than that, its a very good app
  • Zoom

    By almacabro
    I love the new zoom capability, but could you guys put the zoom percentage back on display when I zoom? I write best at the 247% zooming and now I can’t get that perfect zoom on the first try, it would make the zooming perfect if I could!
  • Pen/Pencil option please?

    By simplelife2019
    This is a very thorough app which I appreciate. The only thing I truly love having that appears to be missing in this app is the option to write with a pencil rather than a pen. If it is possible to add this I would greatly appreciate it!!
  • Best, but not perfect

    By 黑猫の魂火
    Most feature, best performance among note apps. But occasional glitch still exist.
  • Key to College

    By grmiller923
    I take all of my notes on here and the tolls on this app have helped me studying so much. I tell everyone about this app because it's been the key for my studying in college.
  • Great PDF annotation app

    By Xwelder
    After Microsoft nuked OneDrive, i looked for another option that allowed pdf annotation with Apple Pencil and keyboards. Notability is awesome for this and has improved my productivity. I’ve been using this app for a few months now and have yet to have even one glitch. Well worth the purchase price if you are using your iPad for productivity.
  • Great, but not excellent

    By Katreeners
    The features of Notability are amazing, however its performance is a little subpar as of lately. When saving PowerPoints from Blackboard, it seems to cut off the bottom of slides during conversion. I would also love to see them implement the option to import audio files, like Good Note.
  • Very useful

    By Tchahattou
    Great app, thank you!
  • Best of the best.

    This is one of the best apps I have ever used with my Apple Pencil (iPad Pro 11 inch). Love it for journal entries.
