Very Productive

I love this app. I have a copy of my planner, work notes, and Bible that I can add my own notes to in my own writing. Very
helpful app. I also love that I can use it on my iPad but also check things on the phone and computer.

Best App for Using Digital Planners

I recently went paperless with my planner system and I absolutely love this app for using digital planners! It's extremely easy to
use and so easy to customize! Best purchase!

LOVE but also please make these changes

I love this app. I use it every single day. It is much better than notability in a number of ways. However, could the tech team
please figure out how to include bullet points, indenting, and numbering? These features are super important and this app really
needs them!

This app is great but for some reason it keeps crashing on me. I’ll be using it then it kicks me off. It’s happened about 6
times already.

Good app, need better outline options

Good and straight forward for what I use it for. Would like to see better outline options for organizing pages within a notebook.
Currently the outline options just seem like tags for the pages.

건의 사항

확대정도가 % 숫자로 나타났으면 좋겠어요 !!
150% 이런 식으로 표시되면 자기 글씨가 어느 정도에서 잘 써지는 지 찾기 더 쉬울 것 같아요

Overall Writing Needs

This app is great. Especially for having multiple files open in the one app is a plus.

Replaced Notepads

I use to buy notepads every week with more notes and notes on top of notes and then I found this app. It changed my life and I am
able to organize my notes and not ever misplace another notebook.

It could be better for math students

My only recommendation is more feautures for students taking math classes. Such as a function that creates a table, and graphs.
Also I would appreciate a college ruled template.

I love this app but please include grid on camera

I really really enjoyed using this app for taking notes. I’ve basically ditched writing on paper! But one thing I would like is.
The insert image using camera function had grid so I can get straight pictures!!

Good Notes 5

I continue to get a notice when opening that the developer needs to update this app. Any idea on when or if this is going to
happen? I love the app but need it updates, especially seeing that I purchased the app.

Perfect for studying

This app is the perfect note taking app. You can highlight, underline, write in different colors, literally everything you can
image. The price point was really good for everything his app does. I definitely recommend it.

An amazing note taking application! If only it had the ability to include GIFs into the notes, it would be a 5 star.

Should add more default shape

Best not taking app so far. I would highly recommend to add more default shape. Because I wanted to draw a dotted oval but could
not do it properly.

Login option Please

I love the app but I wish it had an option when I could login and access the app on all my devices it would definitely make it

Best Ever

I use this app nearly every single day for both work and personal use. If you need to mark up anything from documents to photos,
to just taking quick notes, it can’t be beat.

Great App, but PowerPoint imports are poor

Love using this app, but many times when I try to import a PowerPoint lecture, the formatting is terrible and I have to do a ton
of other steps in order to have a PowerPoint lecture formatted correctly. Very frustrating.

It does some things well and others really badly

I wish I could give it 5 stars but c'mon some of the most simple tasks it does horribly. Text editing is horrible, and good luck
trying to draw a rectangle and modifying its color... such simple tasks shouldn't be so difficult.

Good app EXCEPT for…

Great note app, also use it for digital planning. Would give it 5 stars, but it lacks the ability to lock a layer making selecting
and moving things around difficult. Also would like to have the ability to link pages within a document.

No Streamline?

Add a streamline option for the pen/pencil/marker tools similar to the streamline option in Procreate. That way, those who write
won't have as much trouble with shakiness & therefore there wouldn't be any "jerky" lettering and the writing/lines will be

If this feature is already available in the app apologies for the bad review. Please publicize the feature more.
