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

We've looked for ways to make our team discussions and process more visible and accessible to all users. We recently switched from Google Docs to HackMD. HackMD offers a great unified Markdown editor/preview which is familiar and well-suited to our needs. Our meeting records have improved a lot over a short period and as a result we are able to be better accountable to each other as a team.

Collaborative Markdown editor, very handy and well made to collaborate on documents without giving them to Google. More intuitive and better looking than FramaPad.

Sleek and easy to use. Free but I've donated a cup of coffee. :)

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...
