“Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.“
Sir Richard Branson
Lacks colors and palettes. The app is good, but you can only use a selection of colors (unlike the version for apple). Yes, I know it is a "work in progress", but it is something that hinders the experience a lot. Apart from that, I like the app as a whole. If there were other types of pencils (like watercolor pencil), blender and the color palette, I wouldn't be able to complain.Allan Thomaz Stiubiener
The flexibility of Concepts makes it a great place for thinking, planning, and creating. Draw storyboards, product sketches, and design plans, then share them with friends, clients, and other apps. You can also doodle and write notes using tilt and pressure. Designed specifically with the most recent pen-enabled devices and Chrome OSTM in mind. Because Concepts are vectors, each stroke can be edited individually. Whatever writing implement you choose—pens, pencils, or markers—if you make a mistake, you can easily correct it using the Nudge, Slice, and Select tools. Incredible people working at Disney, Playstation, Philips, HP, Apple, Google, and Unity, as well as Illumination Entertainment, use Concepts to bring their ideas from the conceptual stage into the real world.
I’m so very impressed! I suffer from insomnia so at 5:00am Arizona time I downloaded the new update. I was actually excited because I see great things in the horizon from this team. Well, I was sorta hit in the gut when I fired up the application and it immediately shut down. I took action and sent a text to Zendesk, not because of my disappointment but because I could tell by their program description they were very excited also about the release. To my surprise dialogue started immediately ( don’t know where they’re located but maybe they’re early birds) I sent a description of the problem and photos. I sent them so much I thought they would block me, lol. Well this went on for most of the early morning and by now I figured they had to be on break, sleep or eating but was I surprise when I found the new update proudly sitting in the Apple Store this afternoon. NO! I don’t normally write reviews or anything else this long but they truly deserve all the credit I can bolster, I’m sticking with this team! Thank you so much for standing behind your words!Iskarat

Great drawing app! It's the most accurate and responsive software I could find for use on my drawing tablet. The low latency option really is responsive with no pen lag. I love the design of the tool and color wheel. It took me a little time to get used to it but really found it intuitive. The brushes are great with tons of textures to work with. I don't know if I missed them but animal textures like feathers, scales, or hair would be an awesome addition. I recommend it!

Oddly missing basic tools like the ability to draw lines, splines, circles, etc.. you can only use guides or grid to draw them. Fill bucket painting as well. Minor issue that either the tool labels are always upside down or the color selection is. If the numbers could rotate to stay upright & legible that'd be great.

The Android and Windows apps are so much better than one year ago! I only miss a few fixes, like press & hold always brings up the colour picker for me instead of the selection tool. Also would like to be able to choose and save custom colours, and better file organisation (why did they remove the sidebar to switch projects?). Besides this, They've made lots of progress, please keep it up!

I have been trying to find an App that worked better with PDF annotation (in addition to being good at note taking), but one HUGE drawback of other note taking Apps (i.e. Goodnotes, Flexcil, Nebo, Notability) is that every file has to be imported to be used, and therefore becomes a duplicate, non-sycronized file (not a big deal if you just use it for notes only). Well, NotesWriter fixes that! All files can be saved natively in the iPad Files folder and useable by any PDF program, not just Noteswriter. To me that makes NotesWriter a perfect combination of Goodnotes and PDF Viewer. Considering other PDF Apps charge a subscription, this feels like a steal. You even get a lasso/clipping tool, the ability to scan pages in, and a ton of page templates (all of which most free PDF Apps don’t have). PDF Expert and PDF viewer are the most similar, and but this is slightly better than those if you want note taking abilities. Note to Developers: The layout/user interface could still be improved: if the toolbar was customizable (like PDF Expert), if the view layout was more full screen (neither Reader or Presentation mode are as good as PDF Viewer’s layout), and if the handwriting had a simple zoom feature and was recognizable (like Goodnotes). Great job!
Wow! Where should I begin? This is the best note taking app ive ever had! You can do everything on it! It’s works with the Apple Pencil perfectly. It’s the most best ever! For anyone that is reading this and have not downloaded it yet, well you really need to get it. I went to school and wrote down my notes (also yes we are allowed to take our iPads with Apple Pencil to school and write down notes instead of using a note book) on my iPad and my teacher goes “oh what app is that I’ve been looking at your iPad all day and wondering what app the is cause I really need it!” And told her and she went to her desk got her iPad and downloaded it! (Everyone in my class has this app on there iPad to use it and take down notes) this is just the best app ever! I love it

I really like this app and how easy it is to use. I often take notes in class and my hands get tired pretty fast so I tried finding solutions by using this app. I am a really fast typer on my iPad so I would take notes here during zoom.(temporary thing since eventually we will all return to school in person) I am planning to use this during class and I have only tried doing some samples to make sure this works and it does! I am happy it’s free unlike some apps, and I really recommend this. The only con would be that I wish there were more fonts. Other than that it’s really great.
