Other than a pad of paper and a pencil, is there a better way to take notes than using an an Apple product? Take the Notability app as an example. Type your notes. Hand write notes. Annotate PDF documents. Even record the audio for absolute accurate note taking. That means, Mac, iPhone, and iPad can be used to record notes– handwritten, typewritten, or audio recordings– of meetings, classes, lectures, or just brainstorming.
This is what digital note taking has become in the 21st century.
The small Toolbar at the top of Notability gets you started and gives you options to record notes (in sync with handwritten or typed notes), change pen size and color, undo, search, save and more.
Notability gives you options to style text, create outlines, spell check documents, add bullet points and drop in photos or images.
It’s like having a digital pad that does everything. You can even draw in Notability.
Notes can be organized by project or type, and shared via Dropbox, iTunes File Sharing, Twitter, Mail, and printed out via AirPrint. Notes can even be password protected.
Notability is a remarkable way to capture and store notes, ideas, annotate documents, and more, and keep them all synchronized between Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
But there are problems in paradise. Notability on the Mac is a lesser experience than using Notability on iPhone or iPad despite the same price tag. Either way, there’s no try-before-you-buy trial option, but the option to sync and save notes to iCloud needs to be expanded to Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft OneDrive.
