Most popular feedback for StretchPaper

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!

About StretchPaper

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!

Note Taking Express has been a tremendous success at our school and has been a huge help to our students. Keep up the good work and we look forward to continuing to utilize this service in the new year!”

About Notetaking Express

We are a team of neurodiverse individuals, many of which have experienced the systems of academic accommodation in our own lives. We believe that students should have a choice in how to engage with their learning, and that the idea of accommodation should be deconstructed and replaced with an education system which is truly flexible and adaptable for all. What we are doing We are creating digital note-taking tools to make education accessible for all. A student who is Deaf shouldn't have to choose between staying focused on lip reading or looking down at a notebook. A student who thinks best in pictures and drawings should be able to sketch during a lecture, and still have access to detailed notes for review. Let professionals take notes for you As easy as..

StretchPaper reviews

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.

Notetaking Express reviews

So I was assigned to this app by college for my accommodations for my learning disability purpose I was using and I record one of my lectures and kicked me out and try to log back in and I’m typing back my school email and my password and I reset it but it still gives me the same message that my password and my email address that I entered are incorrect and I couldn’t continue recording my class lecture since I got kicked out from my account and it doesn’t let me log back in. And my lecture that I recorded is in their The honest truth this app need a lot of improvement and a lot of bug fixes made into this app

I’ve been using this app for a while now through my colleges accommodations. The interface is very easy to use and the team is amazing at getting notes to you in a timely manner. The notes are always thorough and delivered in the time period given: almost always earlier actually. My one qualm is that sometimes I’ll hit start recording and it’ll start but when I pick up my phone at the end of class it’s no longer recording. Unsure if that’s on their end or my phones end. But other than that the app has been great and I recommend it to colleges looking for something like this.

“The ease of using your service was appreciated. I highly recommend your service for other students, like myself, who struggle to keep up with note taking while there are several people cross-talking. I have a brain injury that affects my ability to focus on one speaker's words, once someone else starts speaking. I lose entire phrases while I'm taking notes when someone else asks a question or interrupts a lecture. Your service has enabled me to get the notes of only what the lecturer is saying. It helps me to not be so overwhelmed. Thank you.”
