"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
This app is EXACTLY what I was looking for! I need to draw mind maps for med school, but I’m always limited by the canvas size on all the other note-taking and drawing apps. I really wanted infinite space to flesh out my ideas and just get words on paper without limits and this neat, simple little app lets me do that. I was also pleasantly surprised by the pen flow! Most expensive note-taking and drawing apps don’t have pen flow as smooth as Stretchpaper does, which is impressive given its low price. Three bucks? My daily latte costs more and does way less, delicious as it may be. Thanks to the developers for making a great app!
Stretchpaper is a novel method to sketch diagrams, take notes, and display your creative abilities. With an endless canvas, there is never a shortage of space. Stretchpaper is entertaining and practical. You can modify vectors, define your own pens, export your drawings as pictures or mega-pdfs, and more. Works well on the iPad, but the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil make it much better!
At long last... I have tried them all; currently using portions of day one, omnifocus, and microsoft to-do. But none of those had what I really wanted. I imagined an app where I could look at my day and grasp what I wanted to accomplish,not just in terms of tasks and appointments but also goals and some narrative of what I was meant to do on that day. FINALLY this is it. It's feature rich but not overwhelming. I understand that there is a lot more I could do with the app but the tutorials, which are very well done, assume that I already understand backlinking and how to use it in a practical day to day fashion. I don't really get it. So hey, someone fill that gap please. Bottom line: The VERY BEST app I've ever used.
Noteplan 3 was created with the Bullet Journal community in mind. It does this by utilizing linking in both directions to create a network of tasks and notes. Identical to Roam Research in nature. Another app designed specifically for Mac, iPhone, and iPad users is presented here. Noteplan 3 utilizes plain text files formatted in Markdown, has a lightning-fast sync with CloudKit, and integrates with iCal and Reminders. What differentiates Noteplan from competing apps is its use of backlinks. NotePlan is designed to be most useful for keeping daily notes and organizing tasks. The Mac version includes backing linking, which allows you to organize your research using a networked method comparable to the Zettelkasten approach.
Love this app! Use it when I’m planning out stuff in my business. One drawback for me has been when the file becomes too large it takes a long time to load. Running an iPad Pro so the device shouldn’t be the issue. Still use it, just try not to let the it get too big.

This seemed like a great app purchase, but unfortunately the app itself is a exercise in frustration. While an infinitely scalable sketch pad is an amazing concept— one I desperately need for my iPad Pro— this app misses the mark in several ways. First, it ditches the intuitive control and ease of the Apple Pencil for its own drawing UI and response curve. Second, the scaling is maddeningly frustrating as line thickness is impossible to keep consistent as one must invariably zoom when scrolling around the document. (A Zoom Lock feature would seem like a no brainer) What is more, settings such as line thickness and color are basically random as to whether they will stay applied one you select them. I often found myself switching without warning from a blue line to a green line and back without any logical reason. Third, the individual controls lack harmonious integration with Apple simplicity; while other apps allow for a simple tap on/tap off of individual tools, this app leaves a tools always on unless you specifically select a different tool (and even then that no guarantee the switch will take). Add to all this the lack of an easily accessible user guide, a lack of a straight edge (seriously?) and a steep learning curve I cannot in god conscience recommend this app to anyone. A frustrating waste of $3.

App is amazing. It is straight forward and easy to use. Love the infinite canvas as that is what i was looking for. I found a few other apps that have infinite canvas but they all lack ease of use and simple tasks that are imperative for taking notes. So far great app. SIDE NOTE: I am having an issue with a bug. For some strange reason sometimes the notes shift slightly and what was once fully highlighted in a certain color or pointed to with a line for a label tends to be offset. So in other words something is causing notes/coloring/labels to shift just slightly. This can be annoying and can cause issues especially with labeling and highlighting. Can the developer take a look? From what I can tell, it happens when i reopen notes after some time. I do move the screen a lot using my fingers but apparently haven’t been able to pinpoint it. Please do check this out.
NotePlan is a critical part of my workflow. I've converted fully to Markdown for all of my notes and NotePlan handles this so well, bringing together my daily agenda items and any associated notes I take.

As a startup founder, I must be as productive as possible. NotePlan is the first app that continues to feel fast and responsive, supporting my full calendar, to-do lists, project plans, and meeting notes! Highly recommended!

Noteplan 3 is unstoppable! Hi there, I recently downloaded this app and fell in love with it at first sight(or use). I have used all other productivity apps out there across both iOS and Mac, but nothing comes close to the features Noteplan provides. The ability to access and modify my notes, tasks and calendar, all in one place, cross-platform is beyond amazing! That is the foremost thing that sets Noteplan apart, in fact, a class apart from all other apps out there. They all seem to be missing one or the other feature and the closest anything has come to meeting that benchmark, is this app. I saw that people were raving about it on Twitter as well and I couldn't help but get this. I am on a free trial right now and I am set to get the paid version of the app in Sep -The fact that I am leaving a review at this stage is only indicative of the HUGE potential and brilliance of this app. I observed also, like one of the other reviewers here, that the development team is quite responsive and I really appreciate the fact. As a fan of this app, you can expect your team hearing from me with inputs and feedback along the way - I want to see this app get better and the best! There is so much potential here and I am in love with this! Thank you for your and the work of your team to make this possible!
