  • Amazing addition to any Class/seminar where notes are given

    This app is great to add your input into notes.

    Please add a shape tool ;-;

    I have always had extremely disorganized notes for school, and I would get extremely frustrated because I would lose everything, and I couldn't keep track of which notebook I put what assignments in. this app has document scanning so I started putting every handout/ form I need to sign into the app which is so incredibly helpful. Also most apps let you download pdfs into notability so I do most class assignments/ tests on there instead of on paper. It's also really well layed out I think, and I really like having all my notes on one screen. The only qualm I have is that I would really like to have better drawing features. Like maybe a drawing mode where you could add a second layer or where it allows you to color fill shapes that you draw, rather than just the default ones. But overall great app, highly recommend!!
  • Awesome!!!!

    I have changed my opinion of this product since the subscription has come on the scene. Currently, there is a lot to be desired. I paid for the product and should not have to pay a subscription cost. Nevertheless, I paid for the subscription thinking this would stop the problems. No, it didn’t. If you will be relying on this product to keep you organized, be able to access your information when you need it, open notes when you need them; you should not get this product. Please look at other products! The support is strictly email… good luck with getting your issues resolved. Thanks for nothing Nathan. This was my review about years ago. I use this software every day to organize and complete tasks in my personal and professional life. Thank you and continue the awesome work,
  • Glitches

    By user using
    The marker or highlight have problem making the title or Text ink become unseen . Deleteing the highlights and write them again fix the problem but it’s annoying because I can’t read again if the highlights still there
  • Overall Great App, Recommended!

    Overall this is a great note taking app. Instead of a long lecture I’ll got straight to the point. The voice recording works extremely well and audio is perfectly fine. I’ve never ever had ANY issues with this app. No glitches, nothing. Very easy to export files into the app for work. They give you so much variety with the fonts it’s amazing. Fonts is my biggest thing in a notes app and this definitely does the trick! For colors, they have you handled. They provide so much variety in text and handwriting notes. Very easy app to use, very easy to organize. They provide SO MANY templates that are great to use like different lined paper, graph paper, agendas, note style templates, etc. Overall, amazing app with amazing possibilities. Everything you need to study effectively, jot down notes quickly, plan ahead for any events, or anything is here! AMAZING app, recommend!!! ☺️
  • Want to be a forever subscriber

    By frankl246&
    I would like to make a suggestion. I have been using Notability for some years now and have many notes, subjects and folders (which allows me to use for many more years to come). However, there are times when I cannot title my notes the way I want (get error message) because I have the same exact title name in some other folder. This is problematic because my mental model of hierarchical organizations and structures is pretty stable over the years. Usually people are that way—although can evolve. In fact, staying with a consistent mental model is essential for people who use notability and organize a lot. For instance, I would like to have a title “01. Introduction” as my first note title in every subject but can’t do that. I think Notability has continued to improve—particularly the flexibility in organizing and adding folders, subjects, and notes. I hope to continue to use it. If I RUN OUT of titles that I could remember, organization will become harder and continued use for many years May no longer be an option.
  • Good in oh so many ways, but…

    By fjpoblam
    This is *very strictly* an iPad app. If you type at a comfortable font-size on the iPad, it’ll come up eensy-weensy on your iPhone; comfortable iPhone is garish on iPad. No good middle ground: after all these years gingerlabs still hasn’t gotten this together as other apps have. Otherwise, sync is superb; there’s a potload of tools; it’s a great creative helper.
  • Useless unless you plan on paying

    By Wicked Hester
    Downloaded the app, used it for 1 class. Now, I can’t even highlight the notes I took to copy and paste them to my homework. Thanks for wasting my time and holding my notes hostage. Deleting this app.
  • Amazing app

    By Money7$
    I had the premium version of the app and the non premium and honestly it doesn’t really make a difference. I’m in college and the non premium notability works just as good, I am able to take really good notes and the stickies post it notes are still available for free. This app is really good if you don’t want to haul around multiple difference notebooks for various classes. All of my professors have all our assignments on canvas, notability is a good app to do the digital assignments on. I really also like how you can create your own colors in notability for free. If you want to stay organized definitely consider getting notability especially if your in college!
