If I had a penny for every time Notability crashed maybe Id be able to afford college...

Left Behind

The app is great is you have the newest devices and software. I am still trailing with an iPad 3 on iOS 9.3.5. There are only a few apps that lag when I type and unfortunately Notability is one of them. I type a lot on the go, but I regretably decide not to because of how frustrating this lag can be. If there is nothing that can be done to improve this, I understand.

Good but...

I absolutely love the app and have used it all throughout my undergrad. But recently large documents cause the application to crash and the italics wont work for some reason.

Cannot import files

Same issue as reviews below, new update cannot import any of my ppt or pdf files make the app essentially useless

Essential for College, Needs Handwriting Search

This app almost has its all. what it needs now is either a handwriting to text function or at least the ability to search handwriting. I also couldnt figure out why the lined paper is uncomfortable to write on. I now realize there is no lined paper option that has the same line size as real paper. Its either slightly too big or too small. I hope they introduce another lined paper size thats more like real lined paper.

has been glitchy

good update and I like the new colors but lately it has been VERY glitchy and crashing every few minutes I take notes. Wont let me share my notes to other apps and therefore I cant turn them in. It also deletes my work and wont let me open files. PLEASE FIX THIS!!

Thank You For The New Update.

Ive always very much enjoyed and appreciated using, Notability, on my iPhone 6 Plus. I find that its a great way to take notes and to keep my ideas and important information organized. I havent tried out the new "straight lines" feature yet, but overall the app seems very stable to me after this most recent update. And while I find it kind of messed up that this developer charges for new themes (if youre not making enough money currently, just up the initial asking price of the application!), well, I do have to admit that some of the themes look really nice in my opinion. Such as the "Fall", "Winter" and the new "Bubblegum" theme packs. But, seriously, $4 for three new themes? That to me is ridiculous and bordering on, if not in fact, greedy. Overall, though, I still find this application to be worthy of the five stars Ive given it. And I personally believe that you wont be able to find many note-taking programs of this high of a caliber available on the App Store today. So, I definitely recommend checking out, Notability. And I want to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to the developer for your continued hard work, effort, support and time, that you no doubt put into this application to make it as nice as it is to use in my opinion. Thanks for that and God bless. iPhone 6 Plus/ iOS 10.0.2
