"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!
We give the use of technology to humans a lot of thought. With the help of our initial software, SoundAMP, iPhones might be used as multiband digital hearing aids to assist those with mild to severe hearing loss. Based on the realization that the iPad permitted a new sort of note-taking, particularly with increased review and replay of notes made in a class or meeting, we released Notability, the first app of its kind, in 2010. Millions of kids, families, and individuals throughout the world rely on Notability, which is consistently listed as a top selling software in the iOS App Store. Our success with Notability inspired us to consider further demands for better, more straightforward digital experiences. What if we could eliminate the need to move between apps for communication and everyday tasks?

We believed that since our digital lives are interactive and collaborative, so should our inboxes, which should compile all of our information for easy access in one location. Our team has been developing, testing, and breaking numerous concepts for a better communication channel for more than two years. The outcome is Twobird, a novel email app that is currently accessible on all significant desktop and mobile platforms. In order to assist users focus on what's most crucial in their digital lives and comprehend material more quickly, our goal is to develop cutting-edge apps that accommodate all learning styles.

Technology can and should work for you, boosting the interactions and information that are most important, not for it to be the center of your day, in our opinion.
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.
The interface is great: I like the low priority & unsubscibe, and the inbox is organized, simple and easy to look at. Unfortunately, the app is missing MAJOR features: PDFs (and many other types of attachments) can't be opened, and no attachments can EVER be downloaded (to open separately maybe), multi-selection doesn't allow most of the important organization features (labeling, moving, setting reminders), so you have to go into each one manually and do the things, also no way to print at all.

Great app, great cross-platform support. Still lacking a few key features that would make it a no-brainer. E.g. I have a Google account with more than one alias set up, but I have to remember to manually select which alias to send an email every time. (Thankfully it automatically selects the right one when replying, but not for forwarding.) The calendar support is there, but I'd love for it to support event colors since I color code many events on one of my calendars. Great potential!

I cannot wait to see how this app evolves. Things I love: - The texting-like interface---makes email feel like less of a slog - Markdown!!! - Free but with premium features, including snoozing, send later, hiding external images, etc. - Notes!!! Things that could be improved: - I don't love the interface aesthetics: --- (1) the font is chunky (especially in bold); would be amazing if there were options here. --- (2) the color highlights are dominated with eye-wateringly bright pinks and purples. I'd love to be able to turn off colors. --- (3) the icons are a little oversized
