Notability is a powerful note taker that helps you capture everything. The streamline interface provides the tools you need to type notes, add pictures, draw figures, insert web clips, make audio recordings, organize notes by subjects, backup to cloud services, and share notes with friends and colleagues.

Notability improves your productivity in lectures, meetings and interviews when you need to work fast, and also afterward to organize, review, edit, and share your notes.

Do you wish you could outline on iPad? Notability has you covered. You can quickly create outlines (bullet or numbered) with our easy-to-use interface. Outlines provide visual connections between subjects to help you stay organized.

You can use one font or multiple fonts per note, whichever you prefer. Add media to enrich your notes with the text flowing automatically around it. This saves space, gives you more choices, and looks cleaner when printing and sharing your notes

Do you want to add a web clip or picture? No problem, add pictures and web clips (via the built in browser) to your notes and place them where you want. You can also re-size, crop, annotate, add single or multi-line captions in any font, and write directly on pictures.

Need to draw a diagram? Simply use your finger or stylus to draw diagrams and figures or write short phrases using your choice of color, stroke width, and transparency level.

Ready to review your notes or desire a larger screen? You can easily maximize the workspace by hiding the toolbars, which is especially helpful when iPad is rotated in landscape mode.

Notability provides excellent support for external keyboards for the speed typers out there.

Some bugs I found for developers

  1. When trying to insert web clips, google search sometimes can’t type in the search box
  2. The characters float a little when trying to write a list with none bold characters

Overall, this app is one of the best non-handwriting note taking app for students, reporters and more!
