    Close to perfect

    Lately my app has been glitching A LOT with my Apple Pencil and making crazy marks across the page. That’s been super irritating. Overall I love the app but here are some suggestions to improve: 1- select tool: I wish I was able to select and automatically drag to the next page without having to copy and paste. Also when resizing, I wish there was an option like in notability where I’m able to choose a size that I’ve already pre-chosen, like and actual number size. That way all my writing is consistent in thickness even after I enlarge or shrink it. 2- the zoom in feature: it constantly moving around as I press forward and/or enter to shift to the next line and it makes it twice as long to write as I’m having to move the screen window back and forth to see where I’m writing. Sometimes there is sill space on the page and when I press enter it advanced to the next page and I have to move it back up. That’s annoying 😕 Also I wish it would follow me as I’m writing so I don’t have to keep pressing the advance button to make space for me to keep writing. Less adjusting would be great as I’m trying to write notes and focus on lecture. 3- shape tool: I wish it was like notability where it would just recognize that I’m drawing a shape and automatically mold to it or a straight line without having to press the shape tool button. Also the straight lines don’t always attach to each other as well as in notability. So drawing graphs or tables is difficult and doesn’t look neat.

    It’s great but it can do more

    I haven’t used this app for a whole day and I already love it’s features on my ipad pro. I use it to annotate a PDF while inserting pages of my own notes. It’s very responsive and sensitive to pressure and is very aesthetic in terms of interface and organizing files. I do however want to suggest that you make the tool bar floating? Or make more gesture shortcuts? Or at least easier to access the tool bar as you write or annotate you notes on a segment of the page. It really makes annotating more difficult if you have to keep tapping back to the tool bar to change from highlighters to pens. Thanks and more power to you guys

    I have an iPad Air and can’t use an Apple Pencil. I wish I knew that they removed the option of using any other smart stylus before I wasted my money because the palm rejection is HORRIBLE. I would not recommend this to anyone who doesn’t have an Apple Pencil which is an odd requirement for an already expensive app. Hoping they will fix this.
