Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

CollaNote: Note, Journal & PDF reviews

100 stars ⭐️s I’m not really a journaler or a serious note taker. I scribble on posts-its and index cards so I thought it would be a good idea to get into notetaking on my iPad because I can find it easier than i can a random index card. I tried to look for an inexpensive note taking app to start off this new endeavor of keeping notes and maybe start to journal. I tried the Notes app that comes with the iPad and it lacks some pictures. And I didn’t wanna spend a lot of money on something that I might not use. Somehow I stumbled onto this app and WOW!!! It has all the bells and whistles: I can import PDFs, make my own PDFs, I can draw and adjust pens/pencils, stickers, shapes there are templates, I can collaborate, have different folders ! The potential is incredible. And all for the low price of free!!! And even the app privacy seems to be good. How? And it appears this is a one-person show! What? Anyway, I highly recommend this. Go ahead and download and use the template here or look for free bullet journal templates, or planner templates, and imported them to this app and you’ll hit the ground running. I just think this app is incredible and you will think so too. Huge thanks to the developer for your commitment and your generosity! Cheers!

Best Notes App EVER This is truly the best app out there for taking notes and planning. There is so much customization to fit everyone’s needs and to make it feel like your writing in an actual note book. Not only is this app amazing it has a great community around it as well. People are almost always very kind and helpful and on the community notes, people love to share their drawings and express themselves. One thing that truly amazes me is that there are no in-app purchases. Everything offered is completely free. It’s great seeing other students/people wanting to help other students/people succeed without trying to, essentially, steal their money for a mediocre app at best. When you can simply download the app and have everything, if not more, than something you would pay for. And on top of that you are a part of and supporting a great community. If you’re looking for a notes app, this is it. Of course there are still a few flaws but this app is growing and becoming better with every update. You can noticeably see the changes being made to improve the app (which is really cool in my opinion). But seriously there is no notes app out there that is better than this one.

Great app, could have better UI This is an amazing app. I love that it has so many feature and that it uses PencilKit (the low latency is amazing). Other paid apps have not adopted PencilKit for that amazing latency. My only gripe is that the UI seems less polished than some of the other paid app. For example, the folders look less professional, especially on the edit screen. Also the icons for pens, highlighters, etc. don’t look that good. Also the turquoise color scheme for the icons does not look great. Of course, this is just my opinion, and it is amazing that the dev made this app free and is actively working on it as well. It is extremely-feature rich Once the UI is more polished, it would compete with even paid note-taking apps, and I would choose CollaNote over them. Thanks for your work, Dev! Edit: I wanted to update my review after developer response. I don’t think the UI is ugly. I simply don’t think it looks as great nor polished as apps like Goodnote and Notability. Creating a very good looking UI extremely difficult, something I am not capable of, and for a single dev to do what you have done is nothing short of amazing. This is an amazing app. Hence me giving it five stars. And yes, the UI is a matter of taste.

Noto reviews

This is the best note organizing app I’ve worked with yet. I was a longtime Evernote user and then have used Bear hardcore for the last two years, but needed more organization than tags can provide. My choices came down to Notion, Craft and Noto. Noto wins for my purposes. Notion is too clunky and Craft doesn’t allow for manual organization of notes only sorted lists. Noto not only allows for manual sorting, but makes it instant, intuitive and fun. As I organize thoughts and documents, that is what I want. Now as for room for growth, I would like to see expanded export options. Getting imported content into Noto is a snap, but getting it out seems to be a note by note affair, no group exports. This needs to happen to make this a serious app and is really the only weak spot of great magnitude. Cosmetically, I would like to see more color options for folders and notes, but it’s no deal breaker. The short: the more I use it, the more I like it.

I have been looking for a Note taking app that would suffice for my everyday note taking and markdown needs, luckily I came across this one. Thus far, this app has exceeded in every criteria I feel like other note apps are slacking in. Feature packed app that is easy to use and easy to understand. I particularly love the option to add and export codes with an array of programming languages available to choose from. This app really separates itself from other note taking apps with it’s simplicity and wonderful UI. The app is super affordable plus you get your money’s worth. I highly recommend this app.

The design is amazing, so useful and simple, I purchased the life time version after 10 minutes using the app it’s just awesome! I love that it has iPad, iPhone and Mac versions! I looked for the app like this forever. Soooo many features! Perfect for business and personal stuff! Thanks to the creators!!! If these features could be added, the app would be priceless: - change color of the text, being able to apply highlight but keep the text black, more highlight colors.. - add more forlder colors, maybe custom colors, backgrounds... - if i could import my table to excel (or excel file not just pdf) with one piece or copy info from excel and fill out the table in noto - if I can see the table more far away on the iPad - if I could view what folders I have inside my main folders on the home page instead of opening them all to get to the document - if I could change the background of the page itself or when I look at my files so I know the categories without folders like in Google Notes - create a project, reminder and a due date like in Asana
