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

ColorNote Notepad Notes reviews

The app has worked great on my Android phones and tablets for several years. Today I installed the app on a Windows 10 Pro PC and it worked fine until I signed in to my account. Now, when I click the icon, the app seems to start and immediately disappears. Uninstall/reinstall does not help. Sending Application Events Log entry to Support via email.

I, like others here, have been using his app on Android for quite a while. I love the ability to password protect notes on android. This version will require a password to access a note protected in Android, but lacks the ability to set a password from this app. I am assuming that the features missing from the android app will be added with future updates. I would like the ability to add attachments to notes in both this app and the Android App. The "Settings" button does NOTHING. It just shows a new window that says "settings" with no further links or functions??? It is still great to sync my Windows 10 2-in-one with my phone. I use this app pretty much on a daily basis.

I have used this app on Android devices for a long time. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and was pleasantly surprised to see that the app is available there. It is a simple, intuitive interface. I especially like that you can sort your list alphabetically, by color, and by date. It makes it easy to scan for notes as opposed to just entering search criteria as in another app that shall remain nameless.

Noteshelf reviews

I have bought every note app availed, and this is so close to being my favourite! I genuinely think the handwriting is much better on this app than any of the others. The ONLY reason this is not a solid 5 star review and my go to app for everything is that there are some significant bugs specifically when attempting to insert photos. If this is not something that you need to do regularly, choose this app, it is the BEST! If you pull photos or screenshots into you notes on the regular, you will be annoyed at the process of loading the photo to the app, going back into the photo section, and adding the pic, not only is that mildly more laborious than other apps, it crashes consistently, Albeit the first pic of the writing session seems to always work, it is subsequent photo uploading that will not work consistently. For my purposes, this is a big issue and I use the app, but can’t let go of the apps like GoodNotes that in my option are inferior, but consistent in this much needed function. Many of the other bugs and glitches have been remedied so I am hopeful that this one will be to in time and I can give the 5 star review that it otherwise deserves and delete the other note taking apps from my devices. Fingers crossed!

I’ve used this app for the last 5 years nearly everyday. I take meeting notes in it, review pdf files in it, download sheet music into it and practice with it nearly everyday and make presentations from it on a daily/weekly basis. Here’s what I love about it. 1. I love the way it turns pages. It may seem like a minor thing, but for presentations it’s great to be able to flip a page and go to the next point. 2. I love the way I can create handouts in it. When I teach, my diagrams and flow charts are a hit with adults and students alike. 3. I love moving jpegs in and manipulating them. This allows me to create PowerPoint slides, move them into Noteshelf and add my presentation notes to each one. 4. I also like it’s improved search and filing system. I can find what I need. 5. I also love it’s free planner and free paper/notebook options. 6. There is a very low learning curve. Here’s what I wish it had….1. The ability to fill a shape with color. 2. A better calligraphy writing tool. In the old version, my printing took on a more flowing style. In fact that’s what drew me to the app in the first place. It made even my printing/writing look nice. I wish that remained the same. But those are minor compared to the other pluses.

Writing on Noteshelf is simply a pleasure, it is so smooth, the virtual pencil options are very elegant and well designed, it even seems my handwriting becomes (barely) legible. Evernote integration is very handy, much easier than exporting each note (though it could be much easier if you could set it to sync all new notes by default...), it was what made me buy it. There is one small detail that makes me continue using Goodnotes: the paid Mac app, which costs $9 (while Goodnotes offers it for free for its iPadOS paid users). Given the limited function a Mac handwriting app has (how many of us have a tablet, my older Mac won’t even run Sidecar), it seems really foolish to pay extra just to be able to see and export my notes from an app I already paid for. Change this and I will become an active user and an advocate...
