    Shoutout to Carlton
  • Search Function

    By corianne.strupp
    Since most recent update, I have been receiving the message “No search results found” no matter what I search. Hopefully there’s a quick fix for this bc I use the search feature often.
  • Siri Shortcuts support

    By cfhbhhj
    Hey I love the app already but with iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts came. Can you please bring support for the new Siri Shortcuts with the next update? Thanks Andrew.
  • Awesome, but hoping for more!!!

    By Petermai6655
    I love this app, but I just wish there could be several more features. I would love to see the addition of shapes for annotation. Like boxes, circles, arrows, etc. These sometimes can’t be drawn precisely, and having the option to add these objects would be awesome. Additionally, I would like to see more annotation options for the imported documents. (The ability to edit, digitally highlight by just taping the word, underlining, strikethrough, etc. When I add notes, I am hoping it would be possible to warp text on imported documents as well. Additionally, If this app could ocr imported documents as well that would be amazing.

  • Amazing Note-taking app

    By Jbone1928
    Once I purchased my iPad I was looking for a note taking app to use with my Apple Pencil. I purchased this app and it’s the best 10 bucks I’ve spent on an app! I love the audio feature that allows me to record the lectures and come back and fill in were I may have missed something. The two side feature just added is a life savers when I’m using an Power Point Presentation and taking notes off them next to each other. The only two things I WISH was added more COLORS !Followed with maybe a MARKER TIP to write with or maybe a PEN TIP to add to the pencil and highlight options. Please make this happen 😩 Keep up the good work!
  • It’s a life saver!

    By martalopaloCH
    I use this app with an apple pencil and it just so convenient to carry around your iPad with your notes readily available anywhere! I use this app primarily for science classes because I do tons of drawing, highlighting, writing and searching through my other notes all at the same time. Believe me, Notability simply does its job perfectly and I highly recommend it to every other college student!
  • Great but

    Can you add an option so we can organize the notes in a way other than by date created. It would help greatly in school. Thank you. Great app would recommend

    By Medical Student...
    Needs 1.25x speed playback for recordings! But otherwise it’s one of the best Note taking apps.

    I created a folder with a password and somehow the password got changed, so now I can’t get into that folder. I have tried many different passwords and none of them are working. This wouldn’t be an issue if notability had some way of recovering forgotten passwords and I think it would be very helpful to many people. My brother is having the same problem because he forgot his password. I love notability and it is a great note-taking app, I just wish I could recover/change my password.
