Notability iPad App Features

Notability App for iPad is simply setup by subjects. Users can create multitude of subjects and then put multiple notes in these subjects. But the power of Notability lies in its note taking flexibility. Some of the common features are Folders (Subjects), edit, search and email the notes. Moreover, Notability can also be synced with DropBox, iTunes and print your notes services.

Note taking experience is pretty good, users will just have to Tap on the compose button located in the Top right and note taking will start immediately. Enter the name of the note (Note 1 is the default name) and Tap on the Return button to start off with Note taking. You can change the color of the font, size and emphasis, plus not only you can do this but you can also insert images from Photo Application.

Notability User Interface

The figure option in Notability iPad App allows you to draw a custom figure that can be inserted into any of the notes. Moreover, you can also insert a webpage into your note and navigate to these WebPages within the Notability interface.

Apart from these really cool features, there are other subtle features like the ability of indenting and inserting Tabs. Audio notes can also be added and you can even change the frequency of these Audio files.


Overall, Notability iPad App is an amazing note taking App with loads of cool features, the performance of Notability is a bit slow so that’s why opening a note takes quite a time. So if you are a student then Notability is an App worth trying. You can download Notability for iPad from the Apple App store for $4.99.

    Version 3 looks nothing like the photos above, and infact is quite awful. I have emailed the developer my feedback and have been ignored, so i posted to the Facebook page, and my post was deleted.

    The new Aqua/candified interface of v3 makes the app look like something most suitable to a 5 year old’s xylophone, circa OSX 10.0

    I appreciate that one can change the colours, but the whole candy interface is still an eyesore (as compared to refined, subtle, classy and mature textured tan leather look of version 2). Even the file browser names are much bigger font (and cannot be changed) and the bubbles around each folder are massive. I don’t need a fluorescent yellow cartoon/icon next to each subject group, surrounded my fluorescent yellow highlighting with fat psychedelic colours around it. Each item now resembles the windows7 start menu.

    Furthermore the forced page breaks are a disaster also, they cannot be disabled, I have been happily storing documents that i had written in macjournal, and exported to RTFD.  They have a combination of pictures and text, your forced page breaks are a disaster to my photos, I can only fit 2 photos per page, and the next photo cannot follow (across a page break) hence the text is messed up, and the photos are all messed up (and cannot be resited across hard page breaks).

    Do not update to version 3 !
