Everything I was looking for This app solved three different problems for me in the very first day. I love the versatility of it.

Jane Renee

love it tried many similar. this is the best! i like the simultaneous voice recording that scrolls notes as it plays back. i have memory issues from brain damage as well as horrible handwriting (not from damage, just bad) so the recording is immense help.

Luis David Anchía

Safe zone problem Everything works great, except for the safe zone. As soon as I rest my palm on this zone the app stops recognising my input and just ignores it.

Mohamad Hussein

Sony Xperia Z Ultra/Samsung Note 4 Superb versatile software. The layer feature makes me comment on all my pdf files through this program! Very functional!

Mika Devoux

it's great - one improvement feature needed I was going to give 4 stars but I definitely more than "like" this app. It would benefit if it could import multiple pages of pdf into open notebook. other than that... it's all good

Required but does cause clutter Required for importing PDF files into lecture notes but does add an another app to the device that isn't needed directly. Not really a problem but I would prefer to be able to hide it. Otherwise works fantastically well!

It works well with LectureNotes The app is supposed to work behind the scenes with LectureNotes for importing PDF files into LectureNotes. It seems to work fine.
