Was Great until.....
by Danielappleswag on 2021/01/13 21:20
I loved this app, until one day it decided to “update” a very important note of mind with an older version of it. Man I worked so hard on this script I was going to use for a project. Now I have to re write the entire thing. I’m moving on to another notes app.
Love it but a bit glitchy
by Impatient Student on 2021/01/12 04:42
I wish you didn’t have to use preview to edit PDFs, but this is a free app, so you get what you pay for ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ the app has crashed on me twice while I was editing and I lost my work. It wasn’t a lot but that would be so frustrating
Just getting started
by iWonderlander on 2021/01/11 22:13
Already completely impressed and transporting years of ever notes into this application so I can use it with Siri and Apple Watch.
New Fonts
by What Is This? A Room for Ants? on 2021/01/11 19:19
I love the app, and I want new fonts. Times New Roman, Halvetica, and Arial fonts please!!!!!
Would rate higher, by far best notes app I've ever used
by A Non Y-Mouse on 2021/01/10 17:33
I love everything about this app. It's HIGHLY customizable, extremely versatile because you can add literally anything from anywhere; images, links, files, audio recordings, videos, even in-app drawings and entries you can record via speech recognition; you can have multiple notebooks, and the interface is so clean and aesthetic. Really advanced and professional while keeping it fun and interesting. Thank you thank you THANK YOU to the creators
This app is great!
by SuperNinja16 on 2021/01/09 16:18
It provides me the ability to do so much with my notes. Thank you!

Basic functions do not sync
by Tamberlin on 2021/01/05 14:47
Controls are not intuitive or even very logical. Have spent quite a bit of time making up a folder with my garden info. Seed plant times, which varieties work & which don’t. All my fault for forgetting id given up on trying to make stuff sync to my tablet ages ago & opened it there. I suddenly had three garden folders with my individual items split amongst them. So not gonna work so I moved everything to one & deleted the other 2. Now it’s completely gone from my phone which is what i actually take into the garden with me. Tried resyncing. Tried several things. All my effort gone & no way to get it back except to spend several days retyping what info I still have out yet again.
Very nicely done
by Skleo on 2021/01/04 07:02
Very clean and crisp note taking app

App seems really useful
Amazing!
by Hilton high on 2020/12/26 00:34
This is an amazing application for everyone. AND ITS FREE. It’s a quality app that allows you to create notebook where you can store actual notes, voice recordings, and lists. It’s brilliant. I’m using to help storyboard a television show that I’m writing. Great app, recommend it to everyone.
Great app!
by Bob james7273673387272 on 2020/12/21 08:18
I enjoy taking notes on this app! But was wondering if we could get a note card function some time in the future?
Good but flawed
by Mel - Ponce on 2020/12/19 04:53
Its a very good and fun note app. And I would rate it 5-stars if I didn’t have to keep contacting support. I had to contact them twice about my sms verification when I know for a fact I put in my number correctly.
My go to app to Journal
by HottBoi562 on 2020/12/17 21:52
I have been using this app for more then 3 years. I think ever since it has been released to be honest. It has never disappointed me in any way. It allows you to make different subject notebooks. I usually organize my notebooks in different subject journals. And the way you can add a personalized picture onto that notebook is awesome as well. If anyone is looking for an app that you can use to journal, then you found it. It’s all I use! I will keep using it until they decided to get rid of it. Which I hope they never do.... thank you for making an awesome app!! 💜
Great app
by drummerbronx on 2020/12/15 14:39
I kept passing this app up, the books looks feminine. Something my Daughter would like. Until one day, I found out you can add your own photos to cover the books. Great, I love it. I can use this as a clipboard for messages on the iphone. I can sync to windows and my Android tablet. I haven’t had the problems mentioned in the reviews. By the way no one compared this to Evernote.
Zoho Notebook
by Gary Lutz on 2020/12/12 10:21
Very interesting concept of cards with snippets of information. Reminds me of how Evernote first started out and how Goggle Keep layouts look. So for those of you who remember those applications can pick this one up quickly. I personally like the organizational features of grouping cards into piles. It holds information together without having to search each note individually. I remember the “old school “ way of working with index cards to compile research papers. You can quickly regroup cards as information changes without going back to square one to start over. The last thing I like about this is that it is across the board compatible for all the major operating systems. I have Apple, Windows and Android and can pickup where I left off with my work no matter where I am. Application is well done for what I do with information management.
What happened ??
by Nana@51 on 2020/12/12 08:23
It is working perfectly again, thank you for your response Ihave been using this app for a couple of years now. I loved it! So easy to use. I had several notes in there. Then today I opened it to write a new note, and all but one of my notes is gone, and the app has a whole new look. What the heck happened? If it is possible to fix this problem, I will change my star rating,
I never write reviews so this app is Amazing
by teresteph on 2020/12/11 16:28
Please stay forever so that I can finally keep myself organized!!!
A great note taking app
by Kaigeo on 2020/12/10 16:17
Give it a try! It’s a great app! They could have left it the way it was a few years back. Even back then, it was highly functional and simple to use. But they keep adding functionality to it; they keep improving it. For me, it’s all I need! Thanks guys!
Keeps crashing!!!!
by Mgmrgj on 2020/12/09 23:13
I installed this on my ipad but whenever I share or transfer my notes to another apps it keeps on crashing! Please fix this!
My Notebook Review
by Rojack0923$ on 2020/12/09 11:36
This is a lifesaver app. Truly the best way for me to save information that I need to get my hands on right away. I love it(and I can’t say that about most app.)
Love the customization of my notes
by Asvpstafon on 2020/12/09 02:20
It’s great for someone who loves to take notes and also who like to customize their note pad
Absolutely beautiful and simple app.
by jefal-20 on 2020/12/09 01:59
I switched over to Zoho Notebook from Microsoft OneNote. OneNote was a bulky and very slow app. It got really annoying to navigate and use. I am extremely pleased with the change over to Zoho. 5 stars on this one.
The best
by MillyJawn on 2020/12/07 05:01
I have used many note taking apps including Evernote and googles keep notes. This is by far the best app I have ever used. It’s smooth and effective and allows me to sort and search through effortlessly. My only feedback is that it would be nice if they added a theme feature where I chose between more than just light or dark mode.
Best free notes app
by Supreeth rajan on 2020/12/06 22:19
This app is the best free notes app out there. Zoho has done a great job of making this app free across devices. Good job!!
Best note app hands down
by brdgrtwr on 2020/12/05 05:49
Tried everything
Words not shown while typing
by Jadakun on 2020/12/03 23:21
I really like the app but one thing that I don’t like is typing on it. When I type, the bar above the keyboard blocks my view so I can’t see what exactly I’m writing. If you guys fixed this, it would be a wonderful app!
Great app!
by Warriorcatsfan73 on 2020/12/01 22:12
Skye Moon is right. This is a great app and has so many features, I just downloaded it yesterday and have like... 50 notebooks already. Thank you, Zoho Corporation for creating such a good and inspiring app. And, there are no ads. I hope you all get this app and take notes as well as I do.
This is amazing! But it just needs a few more!
by Blue Doodlez on 2020/12/01 12:11
I’ve downloaded a bunch of journaling apps and I absolutely love this one for notes too. I love the interface and the organization of it. I like to write down all my thoughts because I don’t have the friends to share them with. Despite the amazing appeal of it, there isn’t much you can do when it comes to writing. You’re not able to change the font of certain areas or highlight anything. I love being able to add audios and be able to draw but when it comes to the scribbling part, you’re making a separate photo rather than actually drawing on the notes that you wrote. What I think would make this app be one of the best note taking apps if they were able to add the ability to highlight text, change fonts, change the color of text, and be able to draw ON the text. It really upsets me that I’m other apps I’m required to pay them even though I can just do the same thing for free on an art program and also do the same exact thing easily for free with a real notebook and some pens, or on google docs we’re able to highlight and change the colors and all that. This addition would especially be helpful for me and many others during the pandemic since most of us are online learners.

Does not seem to place text correctly when using iOS scribble
by Allston-Tollcross on 2020/11/26 14:06
Unfortunately when using scribble with Apple Pencil, this app seems to misplace the insertion point when trying to insert text.

by Agapetreasures on 2020/11/24 01:03
I wish we could change fonts and font sizes. Other than that....This is a great app.
I use this Notebook every day

I keep track of calories, household chores ideas for meals, shopping lists and recipes.
LOVE iPhone app... Watch app needs work
by munkie95 on 2020/11/22 12:11
I love how it looks on the iPhone!!! There are so many helpful features such as inserting a bulleted list, or a numbers list, even highlighting words/pharses and being able to use bold font!!! However, I really wish I could see on my watch what I see on my phone. Currently everything just runs into everything with no differentiations so it’s difficult for me to tell what I need to buy at what store without looking for the tiny bullet point first. Even the line spaces don’t show on the Watch unless you place a character in there. PLEASE FIX if possible!!! I would love to be able to just pull my To Do Lists and Shopping List on my Watch without having to squint looking for the bullet point. Thank you for an otherwise helpful app!!!
Very user friendly
by Its time Lady on 2020/11/19 17:29
I been looking for a good data keeper etc and this is a five Plus star. This app is great and has everything I need. Yes I will be recommending this to others:)
Crashes all the time
by 16394zmyw on 2020/11/18 22:51
App crashes while taking notes at least once every 30 minutes. Just from basic note taking. And it doesn’t auto save pages so you lose pages of notes with no way of recovering.
Love this app, but have a question!
by Nohlven on 2020/11/15 20:50
I LOVE this app! But I have a question! Is there a way to personalize with my own photos, the cover pics of the individual lists in the app. I apologize I don’t know the correct names of the items I’m trying to describe! If you can offer an any assistance please contact me. Thank you so much! 🌻🌻🌻🌻
Wonderful app but needs more features
by Hssaa alketbii on 2020/11/12 04:48
it's amazing and everything but we need a feature like to be able to share a notebook
Great Journaling App!
by SpiritofFire88 on 2020/11/10 21:07
I like to keep a journal. I write in my journal every night and I use this app to do it. It’s perfect for writing notes of any kind! Not only can you take notes but you can record audio and draw (doodle) as well. I like the user interface a lot. It’s fast and snappy, unlike the Notes app which can sometimes lag for me. I have a little bit older of an iPhone and sometimes the Notes app is slow but this app works great for me. Thanks for making such an awesome free app!
Don’t understand why the clunky limitations on widget options
by tg8035 on 2020/11/09 19:36
(Update: Officially decided to delete) Decided to give this a try for your widgets but you make iOS 14 widgets available and don’t allow multiple notes in multiple widgets? App will only allow use of one particular note at a time for any created widget. And then you don’t provide the option to add the note from within the widget stack. We must open the main app and long press the note for the option. This is very limiting and clunky. Your app would work very well as an preferable alternative for sticky note widgets if not for these limitations and I can’t make any real use of it because of this. Hope it changes one day

Cleanest layout .. everything you need .. one suggestion
by Able Thought on 2020/11/06 17:42
Great app that is straight to the point.. no clutter.. it’s awesome.. My only suggestion is audio needs the ability to loop.. great for songwriters.
Zoho Notebook
by Daylen Westwood on 2020/11/06 08:47
This app has many useful features and makes note taking a good experience.
Versatile but...
by schrom122 on 2020/11/05 14:24
Great app for notes b/c it is available for all OS Needs another layer in the structure.. For example: main level Journal; sub-level September; then notes for all the dates in the month must be in the sub-level named September. Another sub-level after "September" for individual dates would be nice

Literally. 🤍
by missdaisymae4 on 2020/10/13 09:17
Most used app after txts. This app is. My. Absolute. Favorite. The options to lock any individual note or an entire notebook. The colored backgrounds. The personalized notebook covers. The ease of using it from my iwatch. The ease of editing pages. Merging pages. Merging notebooks. It’s the most organized thing in my life & I could not be more happy with the opportunity to use such a spectacular app. & the fact this app is free is kind of crazy to me. I would easily pay for this & I will be a loyal subscriber for as long as the awesome creators will provide this app Thanks everyone.
Great app but bugs issues
by Fatiashams on 2020/10/12 21:18
Hi, I really enjoy using this app but recently I’m having trouble opening the app on my iPhone. It will open then close by itself, I cannot have access to all my notes anymore... Can someone help? Thank you.
Right to left writing
by Dar77vag on 2020/10/11 20:49
It’s an amazing app, and it quickly became my favorite app for making notes. However, my native language has a writing system which is written from right to left. This app doesn’t seem to support that and although most apps automatically switch to right when I start typing in Persian, this app stays in left. I tried sending the texts to right myself but each time I open my note again, the texts are still on left. It would be amazing if you could fix this issue.
I want to love this
by C.B.W on 2020/10/09 20:55
I’m trying to do something simple like name and imported PDF and that’s in a folder and it won’t let me in it’s driving me crazy if there’s a way to do this please let me know thanks. I wish the software was more intuitive.
I like it but I want to change the fonts and colors
by g.a.b.b.y_v.i.b.e.s on 2020/10/07 17:45
I want to be able to make my notes different and not all look the same. I can’t change the color of the text or font.
Needs more options
by christyrayangel on 2020/10/07 07:41
I absolutely love this concept, personalizing multiple journals on your phone in one place, but I’d like more customization ability. More colors & backgrounds for notes, more options for journal covers, and most especially: MORE FONTS! More than 6 basically identical font options within notes instead of a system wide font setting. Other than the lack of options, (there are some great color options but almost half of them are versions of off-white) the app is pretty user friendly, well structured, and pleasantly streamlined.

Lost my notes
by rjakragzzz on 2020/10/04 04:19
I had a whole bunch of notes that I wrote down with pictures and wanted to organize them so I created separate notes and cut pasted the notes from one note to another. The notes had pictures and text. It was supposed to save when I close the note but it didn't and I realized that after doing a couple of them and lost my notes. One of the worst apps.
!!!!!!hey!!!!!!!!

Best work flow for most
by Sportsfan_Hockey on 2020/09/28 13:47
Notebook is MUCH easier to use the one note if you have more than one Microsoft account and has many more features than Google keep. Evernote is best for text, zohos tools and layout are best for me after trying milanote, notion, todist and many more

Pretty good
by arrowflight2008 on 2020/09/23 13:32
I use it for school, and it helps to use so I don’t have to use notebooks all the time. Could be a little better, maybe add the option for double page.
Lacks Minor Things
by Jesterjokes on 2020/09/21 18:31
I tested the app out and it’s a very good note taking app the interface is very simple and creating new notes by writing and typing is easy. Some features I would love to see is a swipe option in a notebook to see different pages just by a swipe like a traditional notebook instead of having to back out each time in between notes. Another feature I’d like to see is different paper options for drawing on notes I just like a traditional one. In all I feel that it lacks some features but still a pretty decent note taking app.
Great!
by Emilyyk6 on 2020/09/21 17:37
I use this app to take notes during remote learning!

Rounded
by MburningstarIV on 2020/09/20 11:55
I love this app. It's my go-to notes app. I even had a shortcut set up to open this instead of the stock app. But the UI really needs the rounded corners on the colored note squares so it would be in line with the rest of iOS and look like it belongs. It's a minor detail, but an important one.
Crashes
by Ferliciaf on 2020/09/18 04:31

So organized
by Goolchick on 2020/09/17 18:26
This has definitely helps me stay organized. I have little things that pop up in my head and I need to write it down or it goes away. It was a little confusing at first but when I got it I was HOOKED definitely worth the being in your phone
Excellent Business and Personal notebook

My note book of choice
by cbsmarkus on 2020/09/16 18:22
I so far find no fault with this app. I write notes, to do list, copy text and photos with ease from face book and other social media. It’s simple to operate and there’s no cost. It’s worth having and so far hasn’t let me down. After I check out all of it’s features I will give an update. Markus

This is the #1 Free Note Taking App ever!!!

I am in love with this App, the Notebook! It’s include so many features for free! It’s has everything I ever need in App! Everything in this App is how I think or imagine how app should be! Great job! This is my first time writing a review and I had to start with my favorite app, the “Notebook” and I love the name of it too! The Notebook! 5 Stars!
Sync issues
by Corbinviper on 2020/09/12 08:39
This is a beautiful app with great functionality. Unfortunately it has some bugs that really need to be addressed. Namely, it has issues syncing across devices which makes it unreliable. I like to have access to my notes on my phone, laptop and iPad. Unfortunately it constantly has problems syncing and sometimes loses part of your notes in the struggle. If you only use this on one device it is fantastic but otherwise I would recommend using something more dependable.

I was going about adding finishing touches to my blueprint design of a vehicle, and I needed to hit the undo button to remove a stray mark. SOMEHOW, IT DELETED ALL MY DRAWING, AND REDO BUTTON WON’T WORK. I EVEN CHECKED OLDER VERSIONS OF THE SKETCH, BUT IT WAS ALL WHITE. I know I am typing in all caps, but this app is not “safe,” as it will put all your work into the trash with no way of recovery. Until my document is restored, this review will stay at one star.
Good but you lose work due to bugs and design issues
by Tn6278 on 2020/09/11 19:45
I downloaded this app in substitution to Goodnotes as I didn’t want to spend money. It works very well and made me more productive in class and in taking notes. Not only are there notebooks, it also supplies checklists, notecards, etc. However, I have several major issues with this: sometimes parts of my writing would just disappear while using the drawing function in my notebooks. It’s frustrating and I lose a lot of information. Another thing is the scrolling design. Whenever I zoom in to write and zoom back out, writing might get cropped and disappear. There’s a very limited amount of space you can write in, and I would love if you gave an extended scrolling function. I also noticed that swiping with your finger erases writing. This would be a useful feature, but whenever I’m moving around the paper by pinching to zoom, I accidentally erase words. Furthermore, it sometimes wipes out large areas of writing randomly after I fix a small detail in the same area. Another thing I would love to see in this app is more tools in the drawing function. Although I believe that notetaking apps are rather good with limited tools to keep the same feel, some tools such as a lasso tool or a fill bucket may make the process much easier. In summary, this app has a lot of potential but is still running on a lot of issues. I look forward to it being upgraded soon. Thanks.
It’s free and let’s you get free notebooks
by sadness.22 on 2020/09/11 16:46
And free covers I like because it doesn’t have in app purchases and it has multiple color’s for notes that you create I just got it yesterday afternoon it’s the best app That I ever gotten, so download it today if you would like it too.
Excellent app for organizing “thought-life”
by Itmademerateit105 on 2020/09/10 15:17
I’ve used many apps for note-taking, and though it is hard to go wrong, this app excels in its functionality, organizational options, & variety of note types. My favorite part is being able to put every note into its own notebook, instead of needing to find notes with hashtags or scrolling. I gave this app 4/5 stars because I wish the setting on the notebooks were easier to adjust. I currently have my notebook set up in a way that isn’t allowing me to re-order my notes, and I cannot find the setting option to change it back so that I can drag-and-drop the notes. That being said, I appreciate that any issue I have had so far with this app is resolvable and not one that hinders the ability to use it with ease & effectiveness. If you, like me, write everything down — prayers, reminders, gift ideas, upcoming events, reading notes, sermon notes, daily task lists, etc., then this app is for you.
Favorite App
by lumimon on 2020/09/10 06:28

The best!!
Wonderful App
by Queen_Ash148 on 2020/09/07 07:59
I enjoy this app. I don’t usually write reviews but I decided I would for this. This is a very helpful too for school with the ease it is to use it. However, may I suggest something? A feature where you could highlight specific words would be cool. I like changing the color of the page for different classes but I’d love to be able to do that for the words as well, like for vocabulary.
The best note taking app I have ever had
by mnm_11.27 on 2020/09/02 18:43
This app is very simple and easy to use. It’s very organized and I love the different features. It is by far the best note taking app I have tried.

Where is my stuff
by ttyttvvkidcehbodfvhn on 2020/09/01 14:58
I had this app on a previous iPhone and got a new one and none of my stuff is there and I’ve been using the same info for a year or so now
Almost Perfect...
by Naomistgo on 2020/09/01 04:08
I’ve been looking for a good notes app and have tried ALL... and I mean all available, for both apple and android. This app comes close to being perfect. It would be great if they could create and sell us upgrade packages for extra features. If they combined this app with the features of apps like GoodNotes or Flexcil this would be THE BEST APP. With those features NOTEBOOK could be used not only for notes but also as a digital notebook, planner, agenda and journals (just by adding pdf annotation, etc.). And the best thing would be that it would all be in one place (one app). With a couple of extra features this app could substitute about 5 or 6 other apps that organized people like me use frequently. Here’s hoping🤞
Love it but 1 request

Keeps crashing
by MDKTPA on 2020/08/28 01:34
I've used this app for years and I have so many notes on there but for the past couple months its been crashing as soon as I open the app which is extremely frustrating. No update has fixed it yet.
Great free app! I use it all the time
by Vicky424 on 2017/11/21 15:11
I've only had an iPhone for a little while but this is one of the best apps I've tried. I'm still finding out all the useful ways I can use it. I have everything from a grocery check list to all the crazy number of user names and passwords for the internet. I've started saving my favorite recipes and scanning my receipts as well. Every category getting its own notebook. Changing the covers to my own photos makes finding the right notebook quick and it's easy to use. It's a great little organization app. It's more than a basic check list or reminder list like I have used before but even for a beginner, with a little playing around and reading the tips I've found it to do more without having to spend a great deal of time figuring out how it works. You can import your own images for book covers but it would be great if more covers were already in the app for basic categories such as groceries, to do list or journals, just typical things that people are likely to want to create a notebook for. The more I use it the more I find it useful to have.
Not for everyone
by Deucalion1010 on 2019/08/18 22:28
I’ll start off by saying I have been a long time Evernote user. I saw that Zoho had built a tool to migrate all of your Evernote notes into their notebook and I thought wow that’s awesome. I use other Zoho products and love them. So I went ahead and did it. I then tried to use zoho notebook instead of Evernote. Just couldn’t do it. You can’t intelligibly sort the notes very well. You have to go to the settings dialog to globally sort things which is incredibly frustrating. Filtering is non existent. The biggest problem for me was the emphasis on tile view (when looking at a notebook) and making things these giant cards. In Evernote I have several view options for listing my notes and my personal favorite is the title, a couple lines of the body and an icon for an attachment to the right. This small list item card tells me a ton about the note. It might have been the migration from Evernote to Zoho notebooks that messed things up, but the only way I can find my notes in Zoho is to search. The note cards don’t have any description on them, only a blown up icon picture and the name of the attachment. Not useful. The last thing that I use in Evernote extensively is email to note. This is not in Zoho notebook and you have to use Zapier to make it work. Tried that and it is very clunky and doesn’t include any attachments. In the end, I think the app is okay for simple notes, but heavy users should think twice. And coming from Evernote you will be limited.
This is amazing! But it just needs a few more!
by Blue Doodlez on 2020/12/01 12:11
I’ve downloaded a bunch of journaling apps and I absolutely love this one for notes too. I love the interface and the organization of it. I like to write down all my thoughts because I don’t have the friends to share them with. Despite the amazing appeal of it, there isn’t much you can do when it comes to writing. You’re not able to change the font of certain areas or highlight anything. I love being able to add audios and be able to draw but when it comes to the scribbling part, you’re making a separate photo rather than actually drawing on the notes that you wrote. What I think would make this app be one of the best note taking apps if they were able to add the ability to highlight text, change fonts, change the color of text, and be able to draw ON the text. It really upsets me that I’m other apps I’m required to pay them even though I can just do the same thing for free on an art program and also do the same exact thing easily for free with a real notebook and some pens, or on google docs we’re able to highlight and change the colors and all that. This addition would especially be helpful for me and many others during the pandemic since most of us are online learners.
Just one problem
by Babytiger2221 on 2019/02/06 00:58
I love this app. It’s really user friendly and I replaced it with my Apple notes app which I really liked already. If you just want to sketch a drawing this is great. Definitely don’t use this if you’re a digital artist. However I have one problem. I have a Siri shortcut that creates a note for me, but when I exit that note, it doesn’t show me my notebooks, it just shows me a blank screen. So then I have to close the app out and then jump back in and it loads and FINALLY I can see my notebooks again. I think this is a great app for college students for taking notes. If you’re willing to pay for an app, I recommend notability. I love this app if you’re coming from apple notes. Did I mention that it has a dark mode! So everything about this app is great besides the Siri shortcut app problem. I think this is a great app for college students, people coming from apple notes, or people who use digital shopping lists. And one more thing, I think the iPhone version is a little harder to use, but the XS max or any iPad version is easier to use.
Text notes need MANY bug fixes
by SooFabulous on 2018/03/01 16:17
I’ve been using this app for nearly a year, and overall it’s pretty good. It supports a bunch of different activities well, and it only takes 5ish seconds to load. However, I don’t think I would want to recommend it to anyone because of how badly it handles text. For example, if you have a text note that is longer than about 250 lines, attempting to select text scrolls up or down at about 40 lines per second, making it impossible to copy/paste/italicize/etc. If you try to access the app while talking to someone on the phone, nearly every UI element starts floating and becomes unusable. If you title any of your notes longer than 11 characters, it cuts off the rest. If you go to another app and come back to it, it removes all spaces in your current line and the cursor is placed to the start of the line. If the line above your current line is italicized, and you try to type anything before the first character on your current line, it will be italicized too despite being on a new line. These have been the bugs that I have experienced most often, and they are incredibly frustrating. Unless they are fixed, I’m just going to use the regular notes app, as it actually handles text correctly.
Very impressive - how is this app free!?!
by Sam Nope on 2018/05/13 18:36
The features are incredible and it is so easy to organize my notes, prose, poetry, recipes, whatever it is I need to save. This app is a million times better than Evernote, which is bloated and ugly and inefficient. I used Evernote for a year and all the while it was nothing but a hassle. Also, Evernote was painfully slow. The features of this app, however, are very intuitive and efficient. I love that you can group notes together by pinching them together *or* by doing a long press. If you want to ungroup them, but just pinch them apart and voila, out of the group. I could go on and on about the features of this app but there are so many cool and *useful* features that I don't have the time or space to do so. It is free! I would happily pay top dollar for this app but it's FREE. Give it a try, and if you're currently using Evernote and decide you like this app better (you will), there's an option to import all of your Evernote stuff. Definitely well worth it to give this app a try.
this app DELETED my note
by Lostsound2018 on 2018/08/17 12:00
So I had a set of important notes that I typed out. A day later, I decided to add another set of notes to the same notebook that the aforementioned notes were in. This notebook only had these two notes. Halfway through writing the second note, I decided to take a break and closed the second note. I clicked back to return to the homescreen where I could see all my notes and voila, that whole notebook was missing. I checked through the trash can to see if I had accidentally deleted it and the notes didn’t show up. I even dug through the app’s files on my laptop in the application support section and couldn’t find my notes to any avail. At this point, I was extremely frustrated and worried that my other notes would go missing. I decided to give Zoho notes another chance and retyped up both notes again and carefully closed my notebook once again and returned to the home page to see an overview of my notebooks. AND MY NOTES WERE MISSING AGAIN. I checked through the source files again and could not find them. I’m really angry and disappointed in this app because it had such good prospects and user design, but if my notes are just going to suddenly go missing, I can’t rely on this app. I’ve decided to migrate to Evernote instead.
Absolute best app of its kind
by Skye Moon on 2018/10/25 01:57
I’ve been using this app for over two years and have only just begun exploring all of the options available. This app has all of the basics you need from a notes app while adding what would normally be “pro” features on any other app. There are no hidden in-app upgrades. You get all the features from the start. As someone who is constantly trying new apps to jot down all types of notes, I prefer this one every time. I have stopped using iPhone apps like Notes, Reminders, and audio recording because Notebook does all of this in one app and does it better. It also integrates across all my devices; it works well on my iPad 6th gen with Apple Pencil and iPhone, as well as on my Mac with both the downloaded program and the “web clipper” (which is the newest aspect of the app that I have quickly integrated into my online browsing). I am not one to give five stars easily, but this is an exceptional free app with all the capabilities of a paid one.

by Donut_Buddy on 2017/11/09 00:40
This app is really efficient. I really enjoy how you can change the cover of the notebooks, and even upload a picture, for free. Any other app would charge for that. I also like how you can put a lock on a notebook, so you can have a diary/journal. I do wish, however, that you could have more than one default note color, or even upload a picture for that, too. There should also be patterns for the home screen, and maybe notes, too. This is not a necessary upgrade, but it would be nice. And we should also be able to add videos to our notes, and also GIFs. That would be great. I would put Meet the Robinsons GIFs all the time:). And maybe more font options, maybe different ones for different notes. I’m sorry if I have too many requests, I’m really just making these up as I go. Thank you for making this beautiful app; I have tried so many other ones; none prevailed:). This app is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious;).

Sorry about the title, but that was my thought process!! Anyways. Where to start? Ok, I know. 1. May we talk about how professionally unprofessional it is? >That may sound like an insult, but it’s a compliment from me. It’s really professional looking, and it is. But it’s not TOO professional, so it wouldn’t seem weird to me to write about unicorns in it. 2. Nice features! >I like how you can have different types of notes. It’s so cool. Also the different notebooks! Note groups are cool too, notebooks within notebooks. The covers are really cute! 3. Very clean. >Nice formatting, and nothing is messy with it, really. 4. Suggestions or Teensy Let-Downs >Can you please make more covers? Most of them just aren’t.. me. >Can you make a way for the background to be like notebook paper? That would be funny. >There should be a way to interchange your notes. I know you can put a drawing into text, but, maybe I want to put a sound note with a drawing, or a checklist with text. >Right when you enter, your thing with your notes pops up, for like 5 seconds before your passcode pops up. 5. Passcode >I love the passcode! Thank you so so much for it! ~Also, I’ve been looking at frillions and cadrabillions of writing apps, but none of them have been ‘cute’. This, you can make it cute. Because, I don’t want to write a story about a unicorn 🦄 in a notebook app that looks like it was made for business purposes.~

These is like the best writing app out there! There are so many ways just to make the note you. You can be messy or organized whatever you like. I use it to write in like every way stories or journal and a lot of other stuff. You can draw and write. Chose your own cover. One of the best things is that there is a passcode. Some ideas. 1 it’s just a small bug. When your passcode pops up about five or three seconds to late. Please fix that course what if someone tapped it and saw the names of your note books. 2 Can you please make some new notebook covers. 3 Can you make it to where you can write and doodle by each other. I know you can draw and write but I would like to put a small picture by a curtain sentence or something. 4 I can’t sink to Facebook please fix that. 💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗 🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 💞💘💞💘💓💘💓💘💞💘💓💘💞💘💞💘💞💖💞💖💞💘💞 Over all these is the best app I have ever saw!!

Great App, but needs a small but annoying bug fix
by anickny on 2020/01/26 21:03
Hey, I love your app and how secure it is on the back end. It’s not zero knowledge but it is very encrypted both at rest and in transit! And you CAN get a password reset should you ever need one! And it has 2 factor authentication. I use it every day for taking well, notes :) The only bug I see that’s really kind of annoying is, on the mobile iPhone app, is when you’re typing on your keyboard and taking notes, the words/punctuation sometimes go off the screen on the right side, they don’t automatically go down a row... it’s very annoying when half of my word is out of my field of view but it’s still there when I hit enter. I find myself constantly hitting enter just so I can see and read the words. It even happens for punctuation, the period or comma will be out of my view but still there when I swipe over to read it. Please correct this so it ALL stays on the field of view. Thank you!!
Music Booking
by DawsonShawMusic on 2020/03/04 10:38
I’m in a band and as we kept booking more and more shows and hiring other bands to be on the bill with us it became more and more difficult to keep track of everything. This app allowed me to create a folder for just the band’s schedule (you can have an unlimited number of folders) then within that folder I could create each of our band’s show dates as their own folder and then inside of those I was able to add all the details for each show including the posters. Plus you can have everything a different color which just helps separate and categorize things even better. This app is perfect for musicians, booking agents, talent buyers and anyone with a full plate of scheduling that requires more than just a calendar. I love it. Also it’s totally free, you don’t have to do renewed payments or anything, just a great app!

Really love this app, but
by RockNRoll4EV3R on 2020/01/30 18:04
This app is everything I was looking for, and free!? Amazing. Superior to all other free notebook apps and probably on par with paid apps. But I have a huge issue. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and finally understand how everything works, which is why I’m so disappointed that my notes have disappeared. Half my notes, all from the past week, are gone. I’ve also been having this glitch where my pen will suddenly start...erasing? Disappearing? But you can still see it writing but it won’t stay. Then I have to exit the note or even the app altogether. It happens quite often sometimes. And I’ve checked my trash: not there. My notes I deleted from the week before? They’re there but I can’t find half my notes. It’s stressing me out because a few were very important and my professors don’t post their notes online. None of my notebooks have disappeared though, but even going through my whole collection of notes there’s nothing.
Bug Fixes Still Not Improved
by cheylonghini on 2018/11/19 22:26
This app is great! I love being able to organize things into different notebooks. It really suits my needs. So why the one star? I came to write about an issue that is so annoying I will not be able to use the app as much as I’d like. This app could replace every other app like it, except for this HUGE issue, and that’s the fact that you can’t highlight sections of text easily at all. It’s really disappointing to see a review from MARCH of this year with the same complaints that I have. Why haven’t they been fixed?! That is absolutely unreasonable and the failure to address these issues is very telling of the priorities of the people behind it. My google docs app isn’t terrible, just not as customizable as this one, but the ease of use of google docs puts it above this app. Even the default apple notes app is better than this because it doesn’t have these issues. UI is so important, but it’s not a priority to these developers. Fix this problem and this will be my number one notes app hands down, and I’d actually recommend it to others.
I dunno what I was thinking

Leaving my child behind Now I suffer the curse And now I am blind With all this anger, guilt and sadness Coming to haunt me forever I can't wait for the cliff at the end of the river Is this revenge I am seeking Or seeking someone to avange me Stuck in my own paradox I wanna set myself free Maybe I should chase and find Before they'll try to stop it It won't be long before I'll become a puppet It's been so long Since I last have seen my son Lost to this monster To the man behind the slaughter Since you've been gone I've been singing this stupid song So I could ponder The sanity of your mother I wish I lived in the present With the gift of my past mistakes But the future keeps luring in like a pack of snakes Your sweet little eyes Your little smile, is all I remember Those fuzzy memories mess with my temper Justification is killing me But killing isn't justified What happened to my son, I'm terrified It lingers in my mind And the thought keeps on getting bigger I'm sorry my sweet baby I wish I've been there It's been so long Since I last have seen my son Lost to this monster To the man behind the slaughter Since you've been gone I've been singing this stupid song So I could ponder The sanity of your mother
Beginning to Become Impatient & Annoyed!
by KB957 on 2019/03/04 13:22
Found this featured in the App Store about 2 weeks ago. I’ve been looking for a good ‘fit’ for a note taking app for 5+ years now and I thought this could be “The One.” After submitting a ticket about the issue of iPad (pro) users not being able to upload their own notebook cover images a few days after ‘the big update,’ and getting a monotonous reply (essentially a ‘bare with us we’ll release an update to fix the bugs’), I’m starting to get impatient waiting and may move on to the next note app to try. I then come here and read other people’s suggestions & reviews and am even more dissatisfied...and then my thought process goes like this...”Yes! Font Selections!, Colors!...oh boy a lot of people have lost their stuff...customer service is either absent, non-coherent, or careless in their replies to these poor users. Yes, maybe I should go ahead to the next notes app on my list to try.”
Overall, great
by Mr. Mustachio🍓🍩🍪 on 2020/06/22 13:06
I started using this app because I was looking for an alternative to the Apple Notes app, and I was intrigued by the idea of separating every note into categorized notebooks. That is the best part about this app: the notebooks. It’s a game changer to know exactly where to find the note you’re looking for. The notes themselves are also appealing; they show up like little post-it notes and it’s fun to watch them accumulate within notebooks. However, the app lacks the ability to add a picture within a note. A picture can be added as its own note, but it can’t be added within a note. This can be frustrating at times. This is minor, but you also cannot edit part of a note title and you must delete the whole thing if you want to fix a typo. Overall though, this is a great app and is much more friendly and interesting to use than the standard notes app.
Finally ...
by Alexa4165 on 2018/09/22 12:48
I don’t usually write reviews for apps. Not because I’m lazy though I am but because mom always said if you can’t say something good; don’t say anything at all. I have downloaded and/or paid for >1000 apps. So it’s safe to say that when it comes to productivity/to do apps, I’m the champ. And this app is my prize. It’s simple, straightforward, and conducive to the matter of organization. Imagine that. It doesn’t shove me into a deep dark pit of frustration. It doesn’t bore me to tears. It doesn’t give me a migraine or produce bouts of anxiety from the idea of opening it. Like organizing a spice rack, it makes life simpler because it does what a productivity app is supposed to do. And the random display of thought-provoking quotes and eye-catching art elevates this app, transporting me to a Parisian café (not Au bon pain). Good job.

been using notebook for about three years and I needed to start a journal for personal reasons and I was looking for a journal app somewhere to go do what I needed to do I downloaded numerous apps to try them and I come to find out that notebook was the best app to use...just make a new notebook in mark it my journal and make entries every day ....add pictures etc. it’s the best app and like I said I’ve been using it for three years and Will continue using it ...the only bad thing ....about a year and a half ago I paid for the advance subscription and when my phone died it never came back so I’m little weary of paying the money again ....because when I did it last time, it really didn’t make no difference ...it is the same as the free one
Great app. Would love to have a couple of options

This app is a simple app that is very easy to use. I don’t need a complicated app. All I want is an app where I can make simple lists and have some basic formatting options. This app fills that need. I love it! My only complaint is that I don’t need to see 5 lines of data within each note when viewing a notebook at the high level. It would be nice if the user could define how much content is visible at that level. Personally all I need to see is the title of the note. By showing multiple lines, you have to scroll down a lot more to find the note you’re looking for. But I still love this app. I’d like to see an undo option. I’ve accidentally deleted content (in another note app) and there was no recovery. Adding this would put this app above many others.
AMAZING ! ... just SLOW AF :((

Until Notebooks I was basically using a combination of google keep, text edit, & ’s basic & clunky Note App. It had the organization missing from google keep, added different font styles, security. But as a SERIOUS digital and physical note taker it became unable to run smoothly on neither my phone, iMac, & ipads. This is why I had to switch from Evernote, the heavy features combined with extensive notes breaks down so many apps. OneNote worked reasonably well for the longest but eventually got so slow it would be easier just to write on paper. Maybe I just do the most but 2020 let’s do better; I’ve realized it’s google keeps lack of excessive features that allow it to run smoothly while handing large amounts of information. Bloated productivity apps are counterproductive overall.
Great but buggy
by Shlappz on 2020/03/10 04:22
This app does what dozens of other apps try to do and it does it better than all the rest. That said, it’s a buggy mess. Making a list, selecting text, or even simply hitting the return key breaks the text editor to the point that it becomes unusable and you need to back out of the note and go in again to fix it. There are other bugs too, like trying to select and move notes around within a notebook barely works and often takes two or three attempts. This is a great app in theory, but these problems completely derail my train of thought, and this happens A LOT. The only reason I haven’t deleted this app in favor of a less buggy competitor is that there are no competitors offering the same features and presentation. Some come close, but none quite have everything this app does. Please PLEASE fix the bugs.
Nice App
by That's Right I Left on 2018/12/07 02:27
This is an update to a previous post. I deleted the original as I believe the problem I was having is with my phone’s 3D Touch. Your help with the problem I was having with this app helped me realize that it’s the problem I have been having with my home screen, and other apps as well. Though your suggestion of changing the pressure sensitivity didn’t work, turning 3D off did and not just for your app, but the others. So, thank you for your help. I have changed my stars to 5. Notebook appears to be a quality app with good customer service which is something difficult to find anymore. So far, I like the way the app is set up. I’m looking forward to trying it out more now that I can use it properly.
Really helps with...everything
by skdkdkx on 2018/04/16 00:04
I get hundreds of ideas every day. Anything from new meals to cook for my family to a new color scheme for my bedroom. I am always looking for ways to remember things and this app is it. I considered carrying around a notebook and pen everywhere so I could jot down ideas as they came, but let's be realistic...not gonna happen. I'm a visual person and I always wished there was an easier way to organize my thoughts without having to physicallywrite it down all the time. This app is exactly what I was looking for. I can save pictures, lists, doodles, etc. all in one place. If you think this is the same as using the generic notepad your phone comes with, think again. You NEED this!!
Pretty good but missing some things.
by iPhonePhive on 2018/05/04 02:29
Missing a few features. The title line limits the number of letters or characters you can use. When you set a reminder date and time there is no way to view the time you had set. You can only view the date after a few clicks. The date and time should be displayed on the note in plain view. I'm not a big fan of the notebook covers. Some look ok but others not so much. The app works great on the watch for the most part. I had trouble copy and pasting check box lists from Google Keep to this app. The list can be copied. But when you create new check boxes on this app they don't show up on the watch app. I had to recreate the lists from scratch to get the check boxes to show on the watch app. But I don't hold that against them.
LOVE iPhone app... Watch app needs work
by munkie95 on 2020/11/22 12:11
I love how it looks on the iPhone!!! There are so many helpful features such as inserting a bulleted list, or a numbers list, even highlighting words/pharses and being able to use bold font!!! However, I really wish I could see on my watch what I see on my phone. Currently everything just runs into everything with no differentiations so it’s difficult for me to tell what I need to buy at what store without looking for the tiny bullet point first. Even the line spaces don’t show on the Watch unless you place a character in there. PLEASE FIX if possible!!! I would love to be able to just pull my To Do Lists and Shopping List on my Watch without having to squint looking for the bullet point. Thank you for an otherwise helpful app!!!
This App Is Amazing!
by StarL1ght! on 2018/01/28 02:12
This app is truly the best! I had been looking for a well organized app for notes, checklists, and platforms to write with, and I couldn’t be happier that I stumbled upon this one. You can organize notes that go together in folders, and you can even put notes inside of folders into groups! With the bold, italic, font type, syncing, drawing, and note and folder colours, it makes everything seem just a bit more customizable. I use this app more than I probably should, and I love it to pieces. It’s perfect for my stories, prompts, links I need, pictures to use later, and fanfiction I’m writing. Syncing is so easy and fast, too. I recommend this app to anyone and everyone of all ages and needs.
LOVE IT!
by Rosie the Realtor on 2019/09/13 21:19
Just got this app a few days ago. So far REALLY love it! Search for an app like this because the “Notes” app, that comes with iPhones and iPad, loses all my notes with every iOS update!!! I’ve used that app for really important things and needed a “good” replacement. This new app has so many advantages! I can create different notebooks - ie personal, business, medical etc. Ea notebook cover can be changed using stock covers, or better yet, photos from my albums. I can put a pic of my grandchild for personal, a Christmas fam photo on cover of XMAS notebook, etc. I can move notebooks around to change visual order. Can move notes around within a notebook and can change background color of notes. I changed colors to red for rush, yellow for next important and so on. How fun is it to open my honey-do-list notebook - with a great photo of my husband! Or my grocery notebook with a photo of my beef braciole! I’m enjoying looking at my work notebook with a great photo of my Realtor Family Team! All in all, this is an app that does everything I would specifically design for myself!! LOVE IT!
BEST APP EVER!!!
by Keela M on 2020/07/04 20:49
I have spent hours looking for the perfect notes app and I stumbled upon this one. This app is heaven on earth. It has absolutely everything I need and things I did not know I need!! I literally had 2-3 other note apps downloaded on my phone because each one had different things I needed but this app is a one-stop-shop. It has everything I need and more! It works on iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch...another thing I was looking for! The best part is that this app is completely free and it’s ad free....so no ads for free use! The graphics, designs, colors, and creative spin you can put on your notes are amazing!! A must have!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the creators!!! ❤️
I’m pretty happy so far.
by easy-E-bmw on 2019/01/02 02:46
I have to say, I usually read most apps reviews in order to even think about downloading or purchasing any app so that’s why I’m writing this review. That being said, this is a great app so far for recording and writing memos on my watch to iPhone. I don’t know how long it records for but I have for as long as about 10 minutes. I think it may go up to 30 minutes. So far it’s been free and not like them other annoying apps asking to pay monthly subscriptions or just costing $5 and up. Also, it has a short cut button on iWatch face display where can just hit and record which I love. So far so good but I’ll keep updating if things change.
Uuuuugggghhhhh
by Future Mrs. on 2019/02/05 16:04
I really want to like this app. I mean really I do. However, I have only been able to use the app on 2 occasions and have not been able to access the app or my research since. All I get is an error message that reads that I typed an incorrect url. WHAT?! I didn’t type anything. I merely pressed the button to open the app. They offer a great concept. I only wished it worked. Update: Increased rating to 3 stars. I appreciate that the developer contacted me and offered a solution to remedy the error message. However, that didn’t resolve it completely. I have registered the account as advised but still get an error message. The only difference is that I can click done and it will then allow me to access my notes. It’s an extra unnecessary step but at least I can use the app.
Finally, an Evernote alternative!
by MedZoom on 2020/01/13 23:02
I have found Notebook to be the best alternative option to Evernote currently available. It appears to have nearly all the same features as Evernote, including Web clipper extension apps for Chrome/Safari—a necessary feature for my workflow. There is also an Evernote migration feature that made the transfer from Evernote to Notebook painless for my 1000+ notes. Caveat: the migration may take days to weeks and is contingent on the data-load being transferred from Evernote. That said, the migration was flawless—all Notebooks and Notes transferred without issue. So far, I am delighted with Notebook and plan to ditch Evernote!
Great, but.....
by qilwedhcilhwe,fjkvb,v on 2020/06/20 16:51
I think that this is a really great app! I used to use google keep, but I saw this and I decided to try it out. The font is good, and I love the journal and customizations you can do with your notes and notebooks. The graphics are nice, and it’s easy to take notes, pictures, and keep documents. The app is really organized and easy to use. One thing I think they should change about the app is that it can be synced with google. A lot of people use google, and I myself used google keep a lot. I had a lot of notes that I would have liked to add to notebook, and it takes a lot of time to recoup the notes from keep to Notebook. Otherwise, this is a really great app that keeps things very organized and easy to see!
DOWNLOAD NOW!
by satan4ever on 2019/04/08 12:29
Honestly I’ve tried nearly every organization/notebook app out there and Notebook is by far my fav. It’s straightforward yet also has way more features than any other “free” app (they usually end up charging you at some point anyway ew) Also love that it’s so customizable in appearance, it’s so much more like an actual notebook that way. I use this to organize my thoughts, make to-do lists, grocery lists, save random things I come across browsing online, make reminders of important tasks, save a list of passwords etc etc. There are a ton of useful features. In summary: download this app immediately, especially if you’re a little scatterbrained like myself lol
Amazing!
by I can now edit woohoo on 2020/02/10 05:11
I dropped a competitors app that rhymes with noodle totes :) this app is so much more appealing and customizable. I also love that I can set a reminder and create folders for each. The only requests I would love to see is the ability to create spreadsheets in notes and also have sub folders so that when you open one notebook you have mini folders inside.. for example if I have a notebook called Recipes, the notebook inside could be: Deserts, Breakfast, Lunch, etc. I would pay for these features! Thanks and keep it up! I learned about this company while I was in Dubai on advertisements around the area and on the flight back on the Emirates airline.
Notebook
by Death007s on 2018/09/27 13:22
It is quite rare I find an application as seamless as this one. With the incorporation of productivity and writing use. This app is top notch. Without the gimmicks of limitations if you purchase something within the app or having to pay for it. This one comes free. Therefore, giving this a 5 star rating which I rarely do. Amazing application all around and the intricate coding that has gone into this application is a must get to have...whether it be for school, work or just something to journal in. This app has it all. From adding attached files and pictures to voice recordings within your notebook. By far the best I have seen free in a long time if not ever.
Very Nice app!!!!! 💕👍🏼
by I eat oatmeal on 2018/09/03 11:58
I really like this notebook app! I've tried a bunch of other ones, and this one is definitely the best. One of the best things about it is that you don't have to created an account or spend money to unlock features. Although you can create an account so that you can sync across devices, but it doesn't cost anything. This notebook app is really nice to use, super basic, and has a bunch of different options. Like you can write text, or make checklists, or sketch, or add pictures or documents, or audio clips PLUS you can organize them in customizable notebooks and you can change the note color. Definitely recommend!!!!!!!💗
Best Note-Taking App I’ve Ever Had
by evanescence13 on 2019/06/15 04:18
I’ve used this App for an entire school year instead of using a regular notebook to take notes in class and it helped me a lot! Other apps focus on note-taking with the Apple Pencil, but since I can’t afford to buy one and only have a bluetooth keyboard, I chose this application instead. Not only can I take notes quickly especially since I type faster than I can write, but I can export my notes into PDFs, turning them into instant reviewers for my finals! The customization features are really cute as well, and it’s neat that I can lock some of my notebooks. Will definitely continue using this app for school. :)
Your search is over
by Carrieshy on 2019/05/13 15:07
I have finally found "the one"! If you are a list- making fanatic this is the app for you. It allows you to keep all your notes in one spot. It also allows access to your photos so you can insert pictures into your notebooks. I originally installed this app on my iPhone many years ago and I have used it everyday since. I have owned multiple devices since and it has worked on all of them. This app allows you to sync all your notes and access them from all your devices. I have been using this app for a very long time and it has only gotten better with every update.
Used to use Evernote but this changed my life!
by Cmostg on 2019/03/27 06:00
I still love Evernote but I have gotten a little bored with it. I needed a way to help get motivated and organized at the same time. I love the fact that you can create different notebooks and custom change the looks for the covers. I have a ton of different projects going on at the same time and this is really helping to stay organized, which I am not normally good at. It’s become a part of my daily routine. I do photography and graphic design and I have a folder for certain things that I have to look up quickly. It is now just apart of my everyday workflow to have it open and to use for my work. I am a visual person so I think that’s why it works so well for me but it’s just a fun and easy way to keep things organized. When I have to open up Evernote and get information from it, it honestly feels like a giant chore and is a little boring. But with this app it doesn’t and it helps keep me inspired because it feels more creative. I recommend this to everyone!
Love it
by misjustine on 2018/10/31 11:26
I’m a huge fan of Notebook. I wrote poetry when the mood arises but also use this to keep any other notes I might need at the time. Picking the journal covers really personalizes the app for each person. Love that. I have one problem, but it could be just my error. I wanted to send an entire journal to a friend to share my writing and can’t seem to find how to send the entire journal to her. There a 60 something individual poems within that journal so I don’t want to send each one, one at a time. Any help from the developer would be great. Other than that. Love the app! Would recommend, and give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!
Deletes notes
by T0Rl on 2019/10/10 00:25
I love using this for quick meetings so I don’t have to waste paper. I usually hand write them using the sketching feature which I LOVE. Unfortunately it “deletes” my notes.... more specifically in the note preview screen I see all my notes, but when I click to view/edit, about 80% of them just disappear. If I start editing/adding to it, the old notes don’t appear and they’re also erased from the preview as if they never existed. It must just be a glitch, but I can’t use an app for note taking when it doesn’t keep them saved and accessible. Side note: honestly wish there was more space per note. I haven’t figured out a way where I can scroll down and keep writing if I run out of space. Creating new notes for the same topic/meeting is just annoying and unorganized.
So Useful
by BunRave on 2020/06/12 04:43
Best note app in my opinion. It’s good that you can group notes together in books (which have nice illustrations and designs) to make it easier to find them, plus you can also arrange them in any order you want. It’s cool that you can use this app on multiple devices. Another feature it has that I like is that you can change the background color of each note to any color. One more feature I must mention is that you can see revisions of your notes from different times, which is helpful for when you restore your note to the way it was earlier. I recommend the app.
Love it, but•••
by Lou&# on 2018/06/13 21:34
Love the way it navigates & has all the elements I need including pin protection, but is this site secure enough to use password info with the pin #. I would like some of the input from old users or maybe the developers. This is the best I've used so far. This is an update. I have like the way it functions & navigates. I have used it for several months & has work fine till now. Every time I copy or paste it gets jumping around, hopping back to the top, or completely jumps off the page. I have a lot of info on this app I can't afford to lose. It could be a deal breaker. Since I seem to be the only one doing reviews, could you pls correct it. Sorry about my remark about reviews. O went in & seen you had quite a few reviews.
Simple and Perfect!
by SockMonkeys on 2019/10/27 11:35
I’ve been using this app for three years, and it’s nearly flawless. It’s so helpful that you can change almost every setting! Dark mode, editorial font, note page color, notebook covers. Totally customizable. I used to use the app exclusively for writing original stories, but now I use the other functions as well. Notebook is simple, straightforward and easy to use. I did have an issue with that when I typed long notes, the screen would snap up and down after I typed every two letters. But, I updated, and the problem seems to be gone! I love the Notebook team! Thank you guys!
Amazing!!!
by JMS169 on 2019/01/20 21:29
I have only been using this app for a few weeks now, and I love it! It’s so easy to use and what I really like is how accessible all my notecards are. I have multiple lists going on at once, and they’re all on 1 screen - So awesome! The graphics are beautiful, so many options & functions that I haven’t even explored yet, but I know I will be using. I don’t know how many of these kinds of apps I have gone through in hopes of helping me stay on track with my life/job. These guys got it right, and this app is definitely a KEEPER!! It’s worth a try and I highly recommend it. Great job on the application directions too!!

Was Great until.....
by Danielappleswag on 2021/01/13 21:20
I loved this app, until one day it decided to “update” a very important note of mind with an older version of it. Man I worked so hard on this script I was going to use for a project. Now I have to re write the entire thing. I’m moving on to another notes app.
Love it but a bit glitchy
by Impatient Student on 2021/01/12 04:42
I wish you didn’t have to use preview to edit PDFs, but this is a free app, so you get what you pay for ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ the app has crashed on me twice while I was editing and I lost my work. It wasn’t a lot but that would be so frustrating
Just getting started
by iWonderlander on 2021/01/11 22:13
Already completely impressed and transporting years of ever notes into this application so I can use it with Siri and Apple Watch.
New Fonts
by What Is This? A Room for Ants? on 2021/01/11 19:19
I love the app, and I want new fonts. Times New Roman, Halvetica, and Arial fonts please!!!!!
Would rate higher, by far best notes app I've ever used
by A Non Y-Mouse on 2021/01/10 17:33
I love everything about this app. It's HIGHLY customizable, extremely versatile because you can add literally anything from anywhere; images, links, files, audio recordings, videos, even in-app drawings and entries you can record via speech recognition; you can have multiple notebooks, and the interface is so clean and aesthetic. Really advanced and professional while keeping it fun and interesting. Thank you thank you THANK YOU to the creators
This app is great!

Basic functions do not sync
by Tamberlin on 2021/01/05 14:47
Controls are not intuitive or even very logical. Have spent quite a bit of time making up a folder with my garden info. Seed plant times, which varieties work & which don’t. All my fault for forgetting id given up on trying to make stuff sync to my tablet ages ago & opened it there. I suddenly had three garden folders with my individual items split amongst them. So not gonna work so I moved everything to one & deleted the other 2. Now it’s completely gone from my phone which is what i actually take into the garden with me. Tried resyncing. Tried several things. All my effort gone & no way to get it back except to spend several days retyping what info I still have out yet again.
Very nicely done
by Skleo on 2021/01/04 07:02
Very clean and crisp note taking app

App seems really useful
Amazing!
by Hilton high on 2020/12/26 00:34
This is an amazing application for everyone. AND ITS FREE. It’s a quality app that allows you to create notebook where you can store actual notes, voice recordings, and lists. It’s brilliant. I’m using to help storyboard a television show that I’m writing. Great app, recommend it to everyone.
Great app!
by Bob james7273673387272 on 2020/12/21 08:18
I enjoy taking notes on this app! But was wondering if we could get a note card function some time in the future?
Good but flawed
by Mel - Ponce on 2020/12/19 04:53
Its a very good and fun note app. And I would rate it 5-stars if I didn’t have to keep contacting support. I had to contact them twice about my sms verification when I know for a fact I put in my number correctly.
My go to app to Journal
by HottBoi562 on 2020/12/17 21:52
I have been using this app for more then 3 years. I think ever since it has been released to be honest. It has never disappointed me in any way. It allows you to make different subject notebooks. I usually organize my notebooks in different subject journals. And the way you can add a personalized picture onto that notebook is awesome as well. If anyone is looking for an app that you can use to journal, then you found it. It’s all I use! I will keep using it until they decided to get rid of it. Which I hope they never do.... thank you for making an awesome app!! 💜
Great app
by drummerbronx on 2020/12/15 14:39
I kept passing this app up, the books looks feminine. Something my Daughter would like. Until one day, I found out you can add your own photos to cover the books. Great, I love it. I can use this as a clipboard for messages on the iphone. I can sync to windows and my Android tablet. I haven’t had the problems mentioned in the reviews. By the way no one compared this to Evernote.

Very interesting concept of cards with snippets of information. Reminds me of how Evernote first started out and how Goggle Keep layouts look. So for those of you who remember those applications can pick this one up quickly. I personally like the organizational features of grouping cards into piles. It holds information together without having to search each note individually. I remember the “old school “ way of working with index cards to compile research papers. You can quickly regroup cards as information changes without going back to square one to start over. The last thing I like about this is that it is across the board compatible for all the major operating systems. I have Apple, Windows and Android and can pickup where I left off with my work no matter where I am. Application is well done for what I do with information management.
What happened ??
by Nana@51 on 2020/12/12 08:23
It is working perfectly again, thank you for your response Ihave been using this app for a couple of years now. I loved it! So easy to use. I had several notes in there. Then today I opened it to write a new note, and all but one of my notes is gone, and the app has a whole new look. What the heck happened? If it is possible to fix this problem, I will change my star rating,
I never write reviews so this app is Amazing

Please stay forever so that I can finally keep myself organized!!!
A great note taking app
by Kaigeo on 2020/12/10 16:17
Give it a try! It’s a great app! They could have left it the way it was a few years back. Even back then, it was highly functional and simple to use. But they keep adding functionality to it; they keep improving it. For me, it’s all I need! Thanks guys!
Keeps crashing!!!!
by Mgmrgj on 2020/12/09 23:13
I installed this on my ipad but whenever I share or transfer my notes to another apps it keeps on crashing! Please fix this!
My Notebook Review
by Rojack0923$ on 2020/12/09 11:36
This is a lifesaver app. Truly the best way for me to save information that I need to get my hands on right away. I love it(and I can’t say that about most app.)
Love the customization of my notes
by Asvpstafon on 2020/12/09 02:20
It’s great for someone who loves to take notes and also who like to customize their note pad
Absolutely beautiful and simple app.
by jefal-20 on 2020/12/09 01:59
I switched over to Zoho Notebook from Microsoft OneNote. OneNote was a bulky and very slow app. It got really annoying to navigate and use. I am extremely pleased with the change over to Zoho. 5 stars on this one.
The best
by MillyJawn on 2020/12/07 05:01
I have used many note taking apps including Evernote and googles keep notes. This is by far the best app I have ever used. It’s smooth and effective and allows me to sort and search through effortlessly. My only feedback is that it would be nice if they added a theme feature where I chose between more than just light or dark mode.
Best free notes app
by Supreeth rajan on 2020/12/06 22:19
This app is the best free notes app out there. Zoho has done a great job of making this app free across devices. Good job!!
Best note app hands down
by brdgrtwr on 2020/12/05 05:49
Tried everything
Words not shown while typing
by Jadakun on 2020/12/03 23:21
I really like the app but one thing that I don’t like is typing on it. When I type, the bar above the keyboard blocks my view so I can’t see what exactly I’m writing. If you guys fixed this, it would be a wonderful app!
Great app!
by Warriorcatsfan73 on 2020/12/01 22:12
Skye Moon is right. This is a great app and has so many features, I just downloaded it yesterday and have like... 50 notebooks already. Thank you, Zoho Corporation for creating such a good and inspiring app. And, there are no ads. I hope you all get this app and take notes as well as I do.
This is amazing! But it just needs a few more!
by Blue Doodlez on 2020/12/01 12:11
I’ve downloaded a bunch of journaling apps and I absolutely love this one for notes too. I love the interface and the organization of it. I like to write down all my thoughts because I don’t have the friends to share them with. Despite the amazing appeal of it, there isn’t much you can do when it comes to writing. You’re not able to change the font of certain areas or highlight anything. I love being able to add audios and be able to draw but when it comes to the scribbling part, you’re making a separate photo rather than actually drawing on the notes that you wrote. What I think would make this app be one of the best note taking apps if they were able to add the ability to highlight text, change fonts, change the color of text, and be able to draw ON the text. It really upsets me that I’m other apps I’m required to pay them even though I can just do the same thing for free on an art program and also do the same exact thing easily for free with a real notebook and some pens, or on google docs we’re able to highlight and change the colors and all that. This addition would especially be helpful for me and many others during the pandemic since most of us are online learners.

Does not seem to place text correctly when using iOS scribble

Unfortunately when using scribble with Apple Pencil, this app seems to misplace the insertion point when trying to insert text.

LOVE iPhone app... Watch app needs work
by munkie95 on 2020/11/22 12:11
I love how it looks on the iPhone!!! There are so many helpful features such as inserting a bulleted list, or a numbers list, even highlighting words/pharses and being able to use bold font!!! However, I really wish I could see on my watch what I see on my phone. Currently everything just runs into everything with no differentiations so it’s difficult for me to tell what I need to buy at what store without looking for the tiny bullet point first. Even the line spaces don’t show on the Watch unless you place a character in there. PLEASE FIX if possible!!! I would love to be able to just pull my To Do Lists and Shopping List on my Watch without having to squint looking for the bullet point. Thank you for an otherwise helpful app!!!
Very user friendly
by Its time Lady on 2020/11/19 17:29
I been looking for a good data keeper etc and this is a five Plus star. This app is great and has everything I need. Yes I will be recommending this to others:)
Crashes all the time
by 16394zmyw on 2020/11/18 22:51
App crashes while taking notes at least once every 30 minutes. Just from basic note taking. And it doesn’t auto save pages so you lose pages of notes with no way of recovering.
Love this app, but have a question!
by Nohlven on 2020/11/15 20:50
I LOVE this app! But I have a question! Is there a way to personalize with my own photos, the cover pics of the individual lists in the app. I apologize I don’t know the correct names of the items I’m trying to describe! If you can offer an any assistance please contact me. Thank you so much! 🌻🌻🌻🌻
Wonderful app but needs more features
by Hssaa alketbii on 2020/11/12 04:48
it's amazing and everything but we need a feature like to be able to share a notebook
Great Journaling App!
by SpiritofFire88 on 2020/11/10 21:07
I like to keep a journal. I write in my journal every night and I use this app to do it. It’s perfect for writing notes of any kind! Not only can you take notes but you can record audio and draw (doodle) as well. I like the user interface a lot. It’s fast and snappy, unlike the Notes app which can sometimes lag for me. I have a little bit older of an iPhone and sometimes the Notes app is slow but this app works great for me. Thanks for making such an awesome free app!
Don’t understand why the clunky limitations on widget options
by tg8035 on 2020/11/09 19:36
(Update: Officially decided to delete) Decided to give this a try for your widgets but you make iOS 14 widgets available and don’t allow multiple notes in multiple widgets? App will only allow use of one particular note at a time for any created widget. And then you don’t provide the option to add the note from within the widget stack. We must open the main app and long press the note for the option. This is very limiting and clunky. Your app would work very well as an preferable alternative for sticky note widgets if not for these limitations and I can’t make any real use of it because of this. Hope it changes one day

Versatile but...
by schrom122 on 2020/11/05 14:24
Great app for notes b/c it is available for all OS Needs another layer in the structure.. For example: main level Journal; sub-level September; then notes for all the dates in the month must be in the sub-level named September. Another sub-level after "September" for individual dates would be nice

by missdaisymae4 on 2020/10/13 09:17
Most used app after txts. This app is. My. Absolute. Favorite. The options to lock any individual note or an entire notebook. The colored backgrounds. The personalized notebook covers. The ease of using it from my iwatch. The ease of editing pages. Merging pages. Merging notebooks. It’s the most organized thing in my life & I could not be more happy with the opportunity to use such a spectacular app. & the fact this app is free is kind of crazy to me. I would easily pay for this & I will be a loyal subscriber for as long as the awesome creators will provide this app Thanks everyone.
Great app but bugs issues
by Fatiashams on 2020/10/12 21:18
Hi, I really enjoy using this app but recently I’m having trouble opening the app on my iPhone. It will open then close by itself, I cannot have access to all my notes anymore... Can someone help? Thank you.
Right to left writing
by Dar77vag on 2020/10/11 20:49
It’s an amazing app, and it quickly became my favorite app for making notes. However, my native language has a writing system which is written from right to left. This app doesn’t seem to support that and although most apps automatically switch to right when I start typing in Persian, this app stays in left. I tried sending the texts to right myself but each time I open my note again, the texts are still on left. It would be amazing if you could fix this issue.
I want to love this
by C.B.W on 2020/10/09 20:55
I’m trying to do something simple like name and imported PDF and that’s in a folder and it won’t let me in it’s driving me crazy if there’s a way to do this please let me know thanks. I wish the software was more intuitive.
I like it but I want to change the fonts and colors
by g.a.b.b.y_v.i.b.e.s on 2020/10/07 17:45
I want to be able to make my notes different and not all look the same. I can’t change the color of the text or font.
Needs more options
by christyrayangel on 2020/10/07 07:41
I absolutely love this concept, personalizing multiple journals on your phone in one place, but I’d like more customization ability. More colors & backgrounds for notes, more options for journal covers, and most especially: MORE FONTS! More than 6 basically identical font options within notes instead of a system wide font setting. Other than the lack of options, (there are some great color options but almost half of them are versions of off-white) the app is pretty user friendly, well structured, and pleasantly streamlined.

Lost my notes
by rjakragzzz on 2020/10/04 04:19
I had a whole bunch of notes that I wrote down with pictures and wanted to organize them so I created separate notes and cut pasted the notes from one note to another. The notes had pictures and text. It was supposed to save when I close the note but it didn't and I realized that after doing a couple of them and lost my notes. One of the worst apps.

Best work flow for most
by Sportsfan_Hockey on 2020/09/28 13:47
Notebook is MUCH easier to use the one note if you have more than one Microsoft account and has many more features than Google keep. Evernote is best for text, zohos tools and layout are best for me after trying milanote, notion, todist and many more

by arrowflight2008 on 2020/09/23 13:32
I use it for school, and it helps to use so I don’t have to use notebooks all the time. Could be a little better, maybe add the option for double page.
Lacks Minor Things
by Jesterjokes on 2020/09/21 18:31
I tested the app out and it’s a very good note taking app the interface is very simple and creating new notes by writing and typing is easy. Some features I would love to see is a swipe option in a notebook to see different pages just by a swipe like a traditional notebook instead of having to back out each time in between notes. Another feature I’d like to see is different paper options for drawing on notes I just like a traditional one. In all I feel that it lacks some features but still a pretty decent note taking app.
Great!
by Emilyyk6 on 2020/09/21 17:37

Rounded
by MburningstarIV on 2020/09/20 11:55
I love this app. It's my go-to notes app. I even had a shortcut set up to open this instead of the stock app. But the UI really needs the rounded corners on the colored note squares so it would be in line with the rest of iOS and look like it belongs. It's a minor detail, but an important one.

My note book of choice
by cbsmarkus on 2020/09/16 18:22
I so far find no fault with this app. I write notes, to do list, copy text and photos with ease from face book and other social media. It’s simple to operate and there’s no cost. It’s worth having and so far hasn’t let me down. After I check out all of it’s features I will give an update. Markus

This is the #1 Free Note Taking App ever!!!
by Madut C on 2020/09/13 10:45
I am in love with this App, the Notebook! It’s include so many features for free! It’s has everything I ever need in App! Everything in this App is how I think or imagine how app should be! Great job! This is my first time writing a review and I had to start with my favorite app, the “Notebook” and I love the name of it too! The Notebook! 5 Stars!
Sync issues
by Corbinviper on 2020/09/12 08:39
This is a beautiful app with great functionality. Unfortunately it has some bugs that really need to be addressed. Namely, it has issues syncing across devices which makes it unreliable. I like to have access to my notes on my phone, laptop and iPad. Unfortunately it constantly has problems syncing and sometimes loses part of your notes in the struggle. If you only use this on one device it is fantastic but otherwise I would recommend using something more dependable.
DELETED MY SKETCH
by Jkhcfhgfgffhgdff on 2020/09/11 19:58
This app would have gotten 5 stars if it DIDN’T DELETE my BLUEPRINT I SPENT AN HOUR DRAWING!!! I was going about adding finishing touches to my blueprint design of a vehicle, and I needed to hit the undo button to remove a stray mark. SOMEHOW, IT DELETED ALL MY DRAWING, AND REDO BUTTON WON’T WORK. I EVEN CHECKED OLDER VERSIONS OF THE SKETCH, BUT IT WAS ALL WHITE. I know I am typing in all caps, but this app is not “safe,” as it will put all your work into the trash with no way of recovery. Until my document is restored, this review will stay at one star.
Good but you lose work due to bugs and design issues
by Tn6278 on 2020/09/11 19:45
I downloaded this app in substitution to Goodnotes as I didn’t want to spend money. It works very well and made me more productive in class and in taking notes. Not only are there notebooks, it also supplies checklists, notecards, etc. However, I have several major issues with this: sometimes parts of my writing would just disappear while using the drawing function in my notebooks. It’s frustrating and I lose a lot of information. Another thing is the scrolling design. Whenever I zoom in to write and zoom back out, writing might get cropped and disappear. There’s a very limited amount of space you can write in, and I would love if you gave an extended scrolling function. I also noticed that swiping with your finger erases writing. This would be a useful feature, but whenever I’m moving around the paper by pinching to zoom, I accidentally erase words. Furthermore, it sometimes wipes out large areas of writing randomly after I fix a small detail in the same area. Another thing I would love to see in this app is more tools in the drawing function. Although I believe that notetaking apps are rather good with limited tools to keep the same feel, some tools such as a lasso tool or a fill bucket may make the process much easier. In summary, this app has a lot of potential but is still running on a lot of issues. I look forward to it being upgraded soon. Thanks.
It’s free and let’s you get free notebooks
by sadness.22 on 2020/09/11 16:46
And free covers I like because it doesn’t have in app purchases and it has multiple color’s for notes that you create I just got it yesterday afternoon it’s the best app That I ever gotten, so download it today if you would like it too.
Excellent app for organizing “thought-life”
by Itmademerateit105 on 2020/09/10 15:17
I’ve used many apps for note-taking, and though it is hard to go wrong, this app excels in its functionality, organizational options, & variety of note types. My favorite part is being able to put every note into its own notebook, instead of needing to find notes with hashtags or scrolling. I gave this app 4/5 stars because I wish the setting on the notebooks were easier to adjust. I currently have my notebook set up in a way that isn’t allowing me to re-order my notes, and I cannot find the setting option to change it back so that I can drag-and-drop the notes. That being said, I appreciate that any issue I have had so far with this app is resolvable and not one that hinders the ability to use it with ease & effectiveness. If you, like me, write everything down — prayers, reminders, gift ideas, upcoming events, reading notes, sermon notes, daily task lists, etc., then this app is for you.
Favorite App
by lumimon on 2020/09/10 06:28
Pro: I write so many stories that this app comes in handy, It Amy main writing app and I use it to organize to-do lists and shopping lists too! con: I’m writing my novel and this comes in handy but its not the best for editing I cant seem to find a replacement other the word which I have to pay for :( I like to have both :)

I enjoy this app. I don’t usually write reviews but I decided I would for this. This is a very helpful too for school with the ease it is to use it. However, may I suggest something? A feature where you could highlight specific words would be cool. I like changing the color of the page for different classes but I’d love to be able to do that for the words as well, like for vocabulary.

Almost Perfect...
by Naomistgo on 2020/09/01 04:08
I’ve been looking for a good notes app and have tried ALL... and I mean all available, for both apple and android. This app comes close to being perfect. It would be great if they could create and sell us upgrade packages for extra features. If they combined this app with the features of apps like GoodNotes or Flexcil this would be THE BEST APP. With those features NOTEBOOK could be used not only for notes but also as a digital notebook, planner, agenda and journals (just by adding pdf annotation, etc.). And the best thing would be that it would all be in one place (one app). With a couple of extra features this app could substitute about 5 or 6 other apps that organized people like me use frequently. Here’s hoping🤞

Keeps crashing
by MDKTPA on 2020/08/28 01:34
I've used this app for years and I have so many notes on there but for the past couple months its been crashing as soon as I open the app which is extremely frustrating. No update has fixed it yet.
Great free app! I use it all the time
by Vicky424 on 2017/11/21 15:11
I've only had an iPhone for a little while but this is one of the best apps I've tried. I'm still finding out all the useful ways I can use it. I have everything from a grocery check list to all the crazy number of user names and passwords for the internet. I've started saving my favorite recipes and scanning my receipts as well. Every category getting its own notebook. Changing the covers to my own photos makes finding the right notebook quick and it's easy to use. It's a great little organization app. It's more than a basic check list or reminder list like I have used before but even for a beginner, with a little playing around and reading the tips I've found it to do more without having to spend a great deal of time figuring out how it works. You can import your own images for book covers but it would be great if more covers were already in the app for basic categories such as groceries, to do list or journals, just typical things that people are likely to want to create a notebook for. The more I use it the more I find it useful to have.
Not for everyone
by Deucalion1010 on 2019/08/18 22:28
I’ll start off by saying I have been a long time Evernote user. I saw that Zoho had built a tool to migrate all of your Evernote notes into their notebook and I thought wow that’s awesome. I use other Zoho products and love them. So I went ahead and did it. I then tried to use zoho notebook instead of Evernote. Just couldn’t do it. You can’t intelligibly sort the notes very well. You have to go to the settings dialog to globally sort things which is incredibly frustrating. Filtering is non existent. The biggest problem for me was the emphasis on tile view (when looking at a notebook) and making things these giant cards. In Evernote I have several view options for listing my notes and my personal favorite is the title, a couple lines of the body and an icon for an attachment to the right. This small list item card tells me a ton about the note. It might have been the migration from Evernote to Zoho notebooks that messed things up, but the only way I can find my notes in Zoho is to search. The note cards don’t have any description on them, only a blown up icon picture and the name of the attachment. Not useful. The last thing that I use in Evernote extensively is email to note. This is not in Zoho notebook and you have to use Zapier to make it work. Tried that and it is very clunky and doesn’t include any attachments. In the end, I think the app is okay for simple notes, but heavy users should think twice. And coming from Evernote you will be limited.
This is amazing! But it just needs a few more!
by Blue Doodlez on 2020/12/01 12:11
I’ve downloaded a bunch of journaling apps and I absolutely love this one for notes too. I love the interface and the organization of it. I like to write down all my thoughts because I don’t have the friends to share them with. Despite the amazing appeal of it, there isn’t much you can do when it comes to writing. You’re not able to change the font of certain areas or highlight anything. I love being able to add audios and be able to draw but when it comes to the scribbling part, you’re making a separate photo rather than actually drawing on the notes that you wrote. What I think would make this app be one of the best note taking apps if they were able to add the ability to highlight text, change fonts, change the color of text, and be able to draw ON the text. It really upsets me that I’m other apps I’m required to pay them even though I can just do the same thing for free on an art program and also do the same exact thing easily for free with a real notebook and some pens, or on google docs we’re able to highlight and change the colors and all that. This addition would especially be helpful for me and many others during the pandemic since most of us are online learners.
Just one problem
by Babytiger2221 on 2019/02/06 00:58
I love this app. It’s really user friendly and I replaced it with my Apple notes app which I really liked already. If you just want to sketch a drawing this is great. Definitely don’t use this if you’re a digital artist. However I have one problem. I have a Siri shortcut that creates a note for me, but when I exit that note, it doesn’t show me my notebooks, it just shows me a blank screen. So then I have to close the app out and then jump back in and it loads and FINALLY I can see my notebooks again. I think this is a great app for college students for taking notes. If you’re willing to pay for an app, I recommend notability. I love this app if you’re coming from apple notes. Did I mention that it has a dark mode! So everything about this app is great besides the Siri shortcut app problem. I think this is a great app for college students, people coming from apple notes, or people who use digital shopping lists. And one more thing, I think the iPhone version is a little harder to use, but the XS max or any iPad version is easier to use.
Text notes need MANY bug fixes
by SooFabulous on 2018/03/01 16:17
I’ve been using this app for nearly a year, and overall it’s pretty good. It supports a bunch of different activities well, and it only takes 5ish seconds to load. However, I don’t think I would want to recommend it to anyone because of how badly it handles text. For example, if you have a text note that is longer than about 250 lines, attempting to select text scrolls up or down at about 40 lines per second, making it impossible to copy/paste/italicize/etc. If you try to access the app while talking to someone on the phone, nearly every UI element starts floating and becomes unusable. If you title any of your notes longer than 11 characters, it cuts off the rest. If you go to another app and come back to it, it removes all spaces in your current line and the cursor is placed to the start of the line. If the line above your current line is italicized, and you try to type anything before the first character on your current line, it will be italicized too despite being on a new line. These have been the bugs that I have experienced most often, and they are incredibly frustrating. Unless they are fixed, I’m just going to use the regular notes app, as it actually handles text correctly.
Very impressive - how is this app free!?!
by Sam Nope on 2018/05/13 18:36
The features are incredible and it is so easy to organize my notes, prose, poetry, recipes, whatever it is I need to save. This app is a million times better than Evernote, which is bloated and ugly and inefficient. I used Evernote for a year and all the while it was nothing but a hassle. Also, Evernote was painfully slow. The features of this app, however, are very intuitive and efficient. I love that you can group notes together by pinching them together *or* by doing a long press. If you want to ungroup them, but just pinch them apart and voila, out of the group. I could go on and on about the features of this app but there are so many cool and *useful* features that I don't have the time or space to do so. It is free! I would happily pay top dollar for this app but it's FREE. Give it a try, and if you're currently using Evernote and decide you like this app better (you will), there's an option to import all of your Evernote stuff. Definitely well worth it to give this app a try.
this app DELETED my note
by Lostsound2018 on 2018/08/17 12:00
So I had a set of important notes that I typed out. A day later, I decided to add another set of notes to the same notebook that the aforementioned notes were in. This notebook only had these two notes. Halfway through writing the second note, I decided to take a break and closed the second note. I clicked back to return to the homescreen where I could see all my notes and voila, that whole notebook was missing. I checked through the trash can to see if I had accidentally deleted it and the notes didn’t show up. I even dug through the app’s files on my laptop in the application support section and couldn’t find my notes to any avail. At this point, I was extremely frustrated and worried that my other notes would go missing. I decided to give Zoho notes another chance and retyped up both notes again and carefully closed my notebook once again and returned to the home page to see an overview of my notebooks. AND MY NOTES WERE MISSING AGAIN. I checked through the source files again and could not find them. I’m really angry and disappointed in this app because it had such good prospects and user design, but if my notes are just going to suddenly go missing, I can’t rely on this app. I’ve decided to migrate to Evernote instead.
Absolute best app of its kind
by Skye Moon on 2018/10/25 01:57
I’ve been using this app for over two years and have only just begun exploring all of the options available. This app has all of the basics you need from a notes app while adding what would normally be “pro” features on any other app. There are no hidden in-app upgrades. You get all the features from the start. As someone who is constantly trying new apps to jot down all types of notes, I prefer this one every time. I have stopped using iPhone apps like Notes, Reminders, and audio recording because Notebook does all of this in one app and does it better. It also integrates across all my devices; it works well on my iPad 6th gen with Apple Pencil and iPhone, as well as on my Mac with both the downloaded program and the “web clipper” (which is the newest aspect of the app that I have quickly integrated into my online browsing). I am not one to give five stars easily, but this is an exceptional free app with all the capabilities of a paid one.

by Donut_Buddy on 2017/11/09 00:40
This app is really efficient. I really enjoy how you can change the cover of the notebooks, and even upload a picture, for free. Any other app would charge for that. I also like how you can put a lock on a notebook, so you can have a diary/journal. I do wish, however, that you could have more than one default note color, or even upload a picture for that, too. There should also be patterns for the home screen, and maybe notes, too. This is not a necessary upgrade, but it would be nice. And we should also be able to add videos to our notes, and also GIFs. That would be great. I would put Meet the Robinsons GIFs all the time:). And maybe more font options, maybe different ones for different notes. I’m sorry if I have too many requests, I’m really just making these up as I go. Thank you for making this beautiful app; I have tried so many other ones; none prevailed:). This app is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious;).

Sorry about the title, but that was my thought process!! Anyways. Where to start? Ok, I know. 1. May we talk about how professionally unprofessional it is? >That may sound like an insult, but it’s a compliment from me. It’s really professional looking, and it is. But it’s not TOO professional, so it wouldn’t seem weird to me to write about unicorns in it. 2. Nice features! >I like how you can have different types of notes. It’s so cool. Also the different notebooks! Note groups are cool too, notebooks within notebooks. The covers are really cute! 3. Very clean. >Nice formatting, and nothing is messy with it, really. 4. Suggestions or Teensy Let-Downs >Can you please make more covers? Most of them just aren’t.. me. >Can you make a way for the background to be like notebook paper? That would be funny. >There should be a way to interchange your notes. I know you can put a drawing into text, but, maybe I want to put a sound note with a drawing, or a checklist with text. >Right when you enter, your thing with your notes pops up, for like 5 seconds before your passcode pops up. 5. Passcode >I love the passcode! Thank you so so much for it! ~Also, I’ve been looking at frillions and cadrabillions of writing apps, but none of them have been ‘cute’. This, you can make it cute. Because, I don’t want to write a story about a unicorn 🦄 in a notebook app that looks like it was made for business purposes.~

These is like the best writing app out there! There are so many ways just to make the note you. You can be messy or organized whatever you like. I use it to write in like every way stories or journal and a lot of other stuff. You can draw and write. Chose your own cover. One of the best things is that there is a passcode. Some ideas. 1 it’s just a small bug. When your passcode pops up about five or three seconds to late. Please fix that course what if someone tapped it and saw the names of your note books. 2 Can you please make some new notebook covers. 3 Can you make it to where you can write and doodle by each other. I know you can draw and write but I would like to put a small picture by a curtain sentence or something. 4 I can’t sink to Facebook please fix that. 💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗💜💗 🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 💞💘💞💘💓💘💓💘💞💘💓💘💞💘💞💘💞💖💞💖💞💘💞 Over all these is the best app I have ever saw!!

Excellent app for organizing “thought-life”
by Itmademerateit105 on 2020/09/10 15:17
I’ve used many apps for note-taking, and though it is hard to go wrong, this app excels in its functionality, organizational options, & variety of note types. My favorite part is being able to put every note into its own notebook, instead of needing to find notes with hashtags or scrolling. I gave this app 4/5 stars because I wish the setting on the notebooks were easier to adjust. I currently have my notebook set up in a way that isn’t allowing me to re-order my notes, and I cannot find the setting option to change it back so that I can drag-and-drop the notes. That being said, I appreciate that any issue I have had so far with this app is resolvable and not one that hinders the ability to use it with ease & effectiveness. If you, like me, write everything down — prayers, reminders, gift ideas, upcoming events, reading notes, sermon notes, daily task lists, etc., then this app is for you.
Great App, but needs a small but annoying bug fix
by anickny on 2020/01/26 21:03
Hey, I love your app and how secure it is on the back end. It’s not zero knowledge but it is very encrypted both at rest and in transit! And you CAN get a password reset should you ever need one! And it has 2 factor authentication. I use it every day for taking well, notes :) The only bug I see that’s really kind of annoying is, on the mobile iPhone app, is when you’re typing on your keyboard and taking notes, the words/punctuation sometimes go off the screen on the right side, they don’t automatically go down a row... it’s very annoying when half of my word is out of my field of view but it’s still there when I hit enter. I find myself constantly hitting enter just so I can see and read the words. It even happens for punctuation, the period or comma will be out of my view but still there when I swipe over to read it. Please correct this so it ALL stays on the field of view. Thank you!!
Music Booking
by DawsonShawMusic on 2020/03/04 10:38
I’m in a band and as we kept booking more and more shows and hiring other bands to be on the bill with us it became more and more difficult to keep track of everything. This app allowed me to create a folder for just the band’s schedule (you can have an unlimited number of folders) then within that folder I could create each of our band’s show dates as their own folder and then inside of those I was able to add all the details for each show including the posters. Plus you can have everything a different color which just helps separate and categorize things even better. This app is perfect for musicians, booking agents, talent buyers and anyone with a full plate of scheduling that requires more than just a calendar. I love it. Also it’s totally free, you don’t have to do renewed payments or anything, just a great app!
Good but you lose work due to bugs and design issues
by Tn6278 on 2020/09/11 19:45
I downloaded this app in substitution to Goodnotes as I didn’t want to spend money. It works very well and made me more productive in class and in taking notes. Not only are there notebooks, it also supplies checklists, notecards, etc. However, I have several major issues with this: sometimes parts of my writing would just disappear while using the drawing function in my notebooks. It’s frustrating and I lose a lot of information. Another thing is the scrolling design. Whenever I zoom in to write and zoom back out, writing might get cropped and disappear. There’s a very limited amount of space you can write in, and I would love if you gave an extended scrolling function. I also noticed that swiping with your finger erases writing. This would be a useful feature, but whenever I’m moving around the paper by pinching to zoom, I accidentally erase words. Furthermore, it sometimes wipes out large areas of writing randomly after I fix a small detail in the same area. Another thing I would love to see in this app is more tools in the drawing function. Although I believe that notetaking apps are rather good with limited tools to keep the same feel, some tools such as a lasso tool or a fill bucket may make the process much easier. In summary, this app has a lot of potential but is still running on a lot of issues. I look forward to it being upgraded soon. Thanks.
Really love this app, but
by RockNRoll4EV3R on 2020/01/30 18:04
This app is everything I was looking for, and free!? Amazing. Superior to all other free notebook apps and probably on par with paid apps. But I have a huge issue. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and finally understand how everything works, which is why I’m so disappointed that my notes have disappeared. Half my notes, all from the past week, are gone. I’ve also been having this glitch where my pen will suddenly start...erasing? Disappearing? But you can still see it writing but it won’t stay. Then I have to exit the note or even the app altogether. It happens quite often sometimes. And I’ve checked my trash: not there. My notes I deleted from the week before? They’re there but I can’t find half my notes. It’s stressing me out because a few were very important and my professors don’t post their notes online. None of my notebooks have disappeared though, but even going through my whole collection of notes there’s nothing.
Bug Fixes Still Not Improved
by cheylonghini on 2018/11/19 22:26
This app is great! I love being able to organize things into different notebooks. It really suits my needs. So why the one star? I came to write about an issue that is so annoying I will not be able to use the app as much as I’d like. This app could replace every other app like it, except for this HUGE issue, and that’s the fact that you can’t highlight sections of text easily at all. It’s really disappointing to see a review from MARCH of this year with the same complaints that I have. Why haven’t they been fixed?! That is absolutely unreasonable and the failure to address these issues is very telling of the priorities of the people behind it. My google docs app isn’t terrible, just not as customizable as this one, but the ease of use of google docs puts it above this app. Even the default apple notes app is better than this because it doesn’t have these issues. UI is so important, but it’s not a priority to these developers. Fix this problem and this will be my number one notes app hands down, and I’d actually recommend it to others.
I dunno what I was thinking

Leaving my child behind Now I suffer the curse And now I am blind With all this anger, guilt and sadness Coming to haunt me forever I can't wait for the cliff at the end of the river Is this revenge I am seeking Or seeking someone to avange me Stuck in my own paradox I wanna set myself free Maybe I should chase and find Before they'll try to stop it It won't be long before I'll become a puppet It's been so long Since I last have seen my son Lost to this monster To the man behind the slaughter Since you've been gone I've been singing this stupid song So I could ponder The sanity of your mother I wish I lived in the present With the gift of my past mistakes But the future keeps luring in like a pack of snakes Your sweet little eyes Your little smile, is all I remember Those fuzzy memories mess with my temper Justification is killing me But killing isn't justified What happened to my son, I'm terrified It lingers in my mind And the thought keeps on getting bigger I'm sorry my sweet baby I wish I've been there It's been so long Since I last have seen my son Lost to this monster To the man behind the slaughter Since you've been gone I've been singing this stupid song So I could ponder The sanity of your mother
Beginning to Become Impatient & Annoyed!
by KB957 on 2019/03/04 13:22
Found this featured in the App Store about 2 weeks ago. I’ve been looking for a good ‘fit’ for a note taking app for 5+ years now and I thought this could be “The One.” After submitting a ticket about the issue of iPad (pro) users not being able to upload their own notebook cover images a few days after ‘the big update,’ and getting a monotonous reply (essentially a ‘bare with us we’ll release an update to fix the bugs’), I’m starting to get impatient waiting and may move on to the next note app to try. I then come here and read other people’s suggestions & reviews and am even more dissatisfied...and then my thought process goes like this...”Yes! Font Selections!, Colors!...oh boy a lot of people have lost their stuff...customer service is either absent, non-coherent, or careless in their replies to these poor users. Yes, maybe I should go ahead to the next notes app on my list to try.”
Overall, great
by Mr. Mustachio🍓🍩🍪 on 2020/06/22 13:06
I started using this app because I was looking for an alternative to the Apple Notes app, and I was intrigued by the idea of separating every note into categorized notebooks. That is the best part about this app: the notebooks. It’s a game changer to know exactly where to find the note you’re looking for. The notes themselves are also appealing; they show up like little post-it notes and it’s fun to watch them accumulate within notebooks. However, the app lacks the ability to add a picture within a note. A picture can be added as its own note, but it can’t be added within a note. This can be frustrating at times. This is minor, but you also cannot edit part of a note title and you must delete the whole thing if you want to fix a typo. Overall though, this is a great app and is much more friendly and interesting to use than the standard notes app.
Finally ...
by Alexa4165 on 2018/09/22 12:48
I don’t usually write reviews for apps. Not because I’m lazy though I am but because mom always said if you can’t say something good; don’t say anything at all. I have downloaded and/or paid for >1000 apps. So it’s safe to say that when it comes to productivity/to do apps, I’m the champ. And this app is my prize. It’s simple, straightforward, and conducive to the matter of organization. Imagine that. It doesn’t shove me into a deep dark pit of frustration. It doesn’t bore me to tears. It doesn’t give me a migraine or produce bouts of anxiety from the idea of opening it. Like organizing a spice rack, it makes life simpler because it does what a productivity app is supposed to do. And the random display of thought-provoking quotes and eye-catching art elevates this app, transporting me to a Parisian café (not Au bon pain). Good job.

by wthsmile on 2017/10/19 01:14
been using notebook for about three years and I needed to start a journal for personal reasons and I was looking for a journal app somewhere to go do what I needed to do I downloaded numerous apps to try them and I come to find out that notebook was the best app to use...just make a new notebook in mark it my journal and make entries every day ....add pictures etc. it’s the best app and like I said I’ve been using it for three years and Will continue using it ...the only bad thing ....about a year and a half ago I paid for the advance subscription and when my phone died it never came back so I’m little weary of paying the money again ....because when I did it last time, it really didn’t make no difference ...it is the same as the free one
Great app. Would love to have a couple of options
by customer909 on 2019/06/15 23:38
This app is a simple app that is very easy to use. I don’t need a complicated app. All I want is an app where I can make simple lists and have some basic formatting options. This app fills that need. I love it! My only complaint is that I don’t need to see 5 lines of data within each note when viewing a notebook at the high level. It would be nice if the user could define how much content is visible at that level. Personally all I need to see is the title of the note. By showing multiple lines, you have to scroll down a lot more to find the note you’re looking for. But I still love this app. I’d like to see an undo option. I’ve accidentally deleted content (in another note app) and there was no recovery. Adding this would put this app above many others.
AMAZING ! ... just SLOW AF :((
by Venus_Virus on 2020/02/08 10:06
Until Notebooks I was basically using a combination of google keep, text edit, & ’s basic & clunky Note App. It had the organization missing from google keep, added different font styles, security. But as a SERIOUS digital and physical note taker it became unable to run smoothly on neither my phone, iMac, & ipads. This is why I had to switch from Evernote, the heavy features combined with extensive notes breaks down so many apps. OneNote worked reasonably well for the longest but eventually got so slow it would be easier just to write on paper. Maybe I just do the most but 2020 let’s do better; I’ve realized it’s google keeps lack of excessive features that allow it to run smoothly while handing large amounts of information. Bloated productivity apps are counterproductive overall.
Great but buggy
by Shlappz on 2020/03/10 04:22
This app does what dozens of other apps try to do and it does it better than all the rest. That said, it’s a buggy mess. Making a list, selecting text, or even simply hitting the return key breaks the text editor to the point that it becomes unusable and you need to back out of the note and go in again to fix it. There are other bugs too, like trying to select and move notes around within a notebook barely works and often takes two or three attempts. This is a great app in theory, but these problems completely derail my train of thought, and this happens A LOT. The only reason I haven’t deleted this app in favor of a less buggy competitor is that there are no competitors offering the same features and presentation. Some come close, but none quite have everything this app does. Please PLEASE fix the bugs.
Nice App
by That's Right I Left on 2018/12/07 02:27
This is an update to a previous post. I deleted the original as I believe the problem I was having is with my phone’s 3D Touch. Your help with the problem I was having with this app helped me realize that it’s the problem I have been having with my home screen, and other apps as well. Though your suggestion of changing the pressure sensitivity didn’t work, turning 3D off did and not just for your app, but the others. So, thank you for your help. I have changed my stars to 5. Notebook appears to be a quality app with good customer service which is something difficult to find anymore. So far, I like the way the app is set up. I’m looking forward to trying it out more now that I can use it properly.
Really helps with...everything
by skdkdkx on 2018/04/16 00:04
I get hundreds of ideas every day. Anything from new meals to cook for my family to a new color scheme for my bedroom. I am always looking for ways to remember things and this app is it. I considered carrying around a notebook and pen everywhere so I could jot down ideas as they came, but let's be realistic...not gonna happen. I'm a visual person and I always wished there was an easier way to organize my thoughts without having to physicallywrite it down all the time. This app is exactly what I was looking for. I can save pictures, lists, doodles, etc. all in one place. If you think this is the same as using the generic notepad your phone comes with, think again. You NEED this!!
Pretty good but missing some things.
by iPhonePhive on 2018/05/04 02:29
Missing a few features. The title line limits the number of letters or characters you can use. When you set a reminder date and time there is no way to view the time you had set. You can only view the date after a few clicks. The date and time should be displayed on the note in plain view. I'm not a big fan of the notebook covers. Some look ok but others not so much. The app works great on the watch for the most part. I had trouble copy and pasting check box lists from Google Keep to this app. The list can be copied. But when you create new check boxes on this app they don't show up on the watch app. I had to recreate the lists from scratch to get the check boxes to show on the watch app. But I don't hold that against them.
LOVE iPhone app... Watch app needs work
by munkie95 on 2020/11/22 12:11
I love how it looks on the iPhone!!! There are so many helpful features such as inserting a bulleted list, or a numbers list, even highlighting words/pharses and being able to use bold font!!! However, I really wish I could see on my watch what I see on my phone. Currently everything just runs into everything with no differentiations so it’s difficult for me to tell what I need to buy at what store without looking for the tiny bullet point first. Even the line spaces don’t show on the Watch unless you place a character in there. PLEASE FIX if possible!!! I would love to be able to just pull my To Do Lists and Shopping List on my Watch without having to squint looking for the bullet point. Thank you for an otherwise helpful app!!!
This App Is Amazing!
by StarL1ght! on 2018/01/28 02:12
This app is truly the best! I had been looking for a well organized app for notes, checklists, and platforms to write with, and I couldn’t be happier that I stumbled upon this one. You can organize notes that go together in folders, and you can even put notes inside of folders into groups! With the bold, italic, font type, syncing, drawing, and note and folder colours, it makes everything seem just a bit more customizable. I use this app more than I probably should, and I love it to pieces. It’s perfect for my stories, prompts, links I need, pictures to use later, and fanfiction I’m writing. Syncing is so easy and fast, too. I recommend this app to anyone and everyone of all ages and needs.
LOVE IT!
by Rosie the Realtor on 2019/09/13 21:19
Just got this app a few days ago. So far REALLY love it! Search for an app like this because the “Notes” app, that comes with iPhones and iPad, loses all my notes with every iOS update!!! I’ve used that app for really important things and needed a “good” replacement. This new app has so many advantages! I can create different notebooks - ie personal, business, medical etc. Ea notebook cover can be changed using stock covers, or better yet, photos from my albums. I can put a pic of my grandchild for personal, a Christmas fam photo on cover of XMAS notebook, etc. I can move notebooks around to change visual order. Can move notes around within a notebook and can change background color of notes. I changed colors to red for rush, yellow for next important and so on. How fun is it to open my honey-do-list notebook - with a great photo of my husband! Or my grocery notebook with a photo of my beef braciole! I’m enjoying looking at my work notebook with a great photo of my Realtor Family Team! All in all, this is an app that does everything I would specifically design for myself!! LOVE IT!
BEST APP EVER!!!
by Keela M on 2020/07/04 20:49
I have spent hours looking for the perfect notes app and I stumbled upon this one. This app is heaven on earth. It has absolutely everything I need and things I did not know I need!! I literally had 2-3 other note apps downloaded on my phone because each one had different things I needed but this app is a one-stop-shop. It has everything I need and more! It works on iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch...another thing I was looking for! The best part is that this app is completely free and it’s ad free....so no ads for free use! The graphics, designs, colors, and creative spin you can put on your notes are amazing!! A must have!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the creators!!! ❤️
I’m pretty happy so far.
by easy-E-bmw on 2019/01/02 02:46
I have to say, I usually read most apps reviews in order to even think about downloading or purchasing any app so that’s why I’m writing this review. That being said, this is a great app so far for recording and writing memos on my watch to iPhone. I don’t know how long it records for but I have for as long as about 10 minutes. I think it may go up to 30 minutes. So far it’s been free and not like them other annoying apps asking to pay monthly subscriptions or just costing $5 and up. Also, it has a short cut button on iWatch face display where can just hit and record which I love. So far so good but I’ll keep updating if things change.

I really want to like this app. I mean really I do. However, I have only been able to use the app on 2 occasions and have not been able to access the app or my research since. All I get is an error message that reads that I typed an incorrect url. WHAT?! I didn’t type anything. I merely pressed the button to open the app. They offer a great concept. I only wished it worked. Update: Increased rating to 3 stars. I appreciate that the developer contacted me and offered a solution to remedy the error message. However, that didn’t resolve it completely. I have registered the account as advised but still get an error message. The only difference is that I can click done and it will then allow me to access my notes. It’s an extra unnecessary step but at least I can use the app.
Finally, an Evernote alternative!

I have found Notebook to be the best alternative option to Evernote currently available. It appears to have nearly all the same features as Evernote, including Web clipper extension apps for Chrome/Safari—a necessary feature for my workflow. There is also an Evernote migration feature that made the transfer from Evernote to Notebook painless for my 1000+ notes. Caveat: the migration may take days to weeks and is contingent on the data-load being transferred from Evernote. That said, the migration was flawless—all Notebooks and Notes transferred without issue. So far, I am delighted with Notebook and plan to ditch Evernote!
Great, but.....

I think that this is a really great app! I used to use google keep, but I saw this and I decided to try it out. The font is good, and I love the journal and customizations you can do with your notes and notebooks. The graphics are nice, and it’s easy to take notes, pictures, and keep documents. The app is really organized and easy to use. One thing I think they should change about the app is that it can be synced with google. A lot of people use google, and I myself used google keep a lot. I had a lot of notes that I would have liked to add to notebook, and it takes a lot of time to recoup the notes from keep to Notebook. Otherwise, this is a really great app that keeps things very organized and easy to see!
DOWNLOAD NOW!

Honestly I’ve tried nearly every organization/notebook app out there and Notebook is by far my fav. It’s straightforward yet also has way more features than any other “free” app (they usually end up charging you at some point anyway ew) Also love that it’s so customizable in appearance, it’s so much more like an actual notebook that way. I use this to organize my thoughts, make to-do lists, grocery lists, save random things I come across browsing online, make reminders of important tasks, save a list of passwords etc etc. There are a ton of useful features. In summary: download this app immediately, especially if you’re a little scatterbrained like myself lol
Amazing!

I dropped a competitors app that rhymes with noodle totes :) this app is so much more appealing and customizable. I also love that I can set a reminder and create folders for each. The only requests I would love to see is the ability to create spreadsheets in notes and also have sub folders so that when you open one notebook you have mini folders inside.. for example if I have a notebook called Recipes, the notebook inside could be: Deserts, Breakfast, Lunch, etc. I would pay for these features! Thanks and keep it up! I learned about this company while I was in Dubai on advertisements around the area and on the flight back on the Emirates airline.
Notebook

It is quite rare I find an application as seamless as this one. With the incorporation of productivity and writing use. This app is top notch. Without the gimmicks of limitations if you purchase something within the app or having to pay for it. This one comes free. Therefore, giving this a 5 star rating which I rarely do. Amazing application all around and the intricate coding that has gone into this application is a must get to have...whether it be for school, work or just something to journal in. This app has it all. From adding attached files and pictures to voice recordings within your notebook. By far the best I have seen free in a long time if not ever.
Very Nice app!!!!! 💕👍🏼

I really like this notebook app! I've tried a bunch of other ones, and this one is definitely the best. One of the best things about it is that you don't have to created an account or spend money to unlock features. Although you can create an account so that you can sync across devices, but it doesn't cost anything. This notebook app is really nice to use, super basic, and has a bunch of different options. Like you can write text, or make checklists, or sketch, or add pictures or documents, or audio clips PLUS you can organize them in customizable notebooks and you can change the note color. Definitely recommend!!!!!!!💗
Best Note-Taking App I’ve Ever Had
by evanescence13 on 2019/06/15 04:18
I’ve used this App for an entire school year instead of using a regular notebook to take notes in class and it helped me a lot! Other apps focus on note-taking with the Apple Pencil, but since I can’t afford to buy one and only have a bluetooth keyboard, I chose this application instead. Not only can I take notes quickly especially since I type faster than I can write, but I can export my notes into PDFs, turning them into instant reviewers for my finals! The customization features are really cute as well, and it’s neat that I can lock some of my notebooks. Will definitely continue using this app for school. :)
Your search is over
by Carrieshy on 2019/05/13 15:07
I have finally found "the one"! If you are a list- making fanatic this is the app for you. It allows you to keep all your notes in one spot. It also allows access to your photos so you can insert pictures into your notebooks. I originally installed this app on my iPhone many years ago and I have used it everyday since. I have owned multiple devices since and it has worked on all of them. This app allows you to sync all your notes and access them from all your devices. I have been using this app for a very long time and it has only gotten better with every update.
Used to use Evernote but this changed my life!
by Cmostg on 2019/03/27 06:00
I still love Evernote but I have gotten a little bored with it. I needed a way to help get motivated and organized at the same time. I love the fact that you can create different notebooks and custom change the looks for the covers. I have a ton of different projects going on at the same time and this is really helping to stay organized, which I am not normally good at. It’s become a part of my daily routine. I do photography and graphic design and I have a folder for certain things that I have to look up quickly. It is now just apart of my everyday workflow to have it open and to use for my work. I am a visual person so I think that’s why it works so well for me but it’s just a fun and easy way to keep things organized. When I have to open up Evernote and get information from it, it honestly feels like a giant chore and is a little boring. But with this app it doesn’t and it helps keep me inspired because it feels more creative. I recommend this to everyone!
Love it

I’m a huge fan of Notebook. I wrote poetry when the mood arises but also use this to keep any other notes I might need at the time. Picking the journal covers really personalizes the app for each person. Love that. I have one problem, but it could be just my error. I wanted to send an entire journal to a friend to share my writing and can’t seem to find how to send the entire journal to her. There a 60 something individual poems within that journal so I don’t want to send each one, one at a time. Any help from the developer would be great. Other than that. Love the app! Would recommend, and give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!
Deletes notes
by T0Rl on 2019/10/10 00:25
I love using this for quick meetings so I don’t have to waste paper. I usually hand write them using the sketching feature which I LOVE. Unfortunately it “deletes” my notes.... more specifically in the note preview screen I see all my notes, but when I click to view/edit, about 80% of them just disappear. If I start editing/adding to it, the old notes don’t appear and they’re also erased from the preview as if they never existed. It must just be a glitch, but I can’t use an app for note taking when it doesn’t keep them saved and accessible. Side note: honestly wish there was more space per note. I haven’t figured out a way where I can scroll down and keep writing if I run out of space. Creating new notes for the same topic/meeting is just annoying and unorganized.
So Useful
by BunRave on 2020/06/12 04:43
Best note app in my opinion. It’s good that you can group notes together in books (which have nice illustrations and designs) to make it easier to find them, plus you can also arrange them in any order you want. It’s cool that you can use this app on multiple devices. Another feature it has that I like is that you can change the background color of each note to any color. One more feature I must mention is that you can see revisions of your notes from different times, which is helpful for when you restore your note to the way it was earlier. I recommend the app.
Love it, but•••

Love the way it navigates & has all the elements I need including pin protection, but is this site secure enough to use password info with the pin #. I would like some of the input from old users or maybe the developers. This is the best I've used so far. This is an update. I have like the way it functions & navigates. I have used it for several months & has work fine till now. Every time I copy or paste it gets jumping around, hopping back to the top, or completely jumps off the page. I have a lot of info on this app I can't afford to lose. It could be a deal breaker. Since I seem to be the only one doing reviews, could you pls correct it. Sorry about my remark about reviews. O went in & seen you had quite a few reviews.
Simple and Perfect!
by SockMonkeys on 2019/10/27 11:35
I’ve been using this app for three years, and it’s nearly flawless. It’s so helpful that you can change almost every setting! Dark mode, editorial font, note page color, notebook covers. Totally customizable. I used to use the app exclusively for writing original stories, but now I use the other functions as well. Notebook is simple, straightforward and easy to use. I did have an issue with that when I typed long notes, the screen would snap up and down after I typed every two letters. But, I updated, and the problem seems to be gone! I love the Notebook team! Thank you guys!
Amazing!!!
by JMS169 on 2019/01/20 21:29
I have only been using this app for a few weeks now, and I love it! It’s so easy to use and what I really like is how accessible all my notecards are. I have multiple lists going on at once, and they’re all on 1 screen - So awesome! The graphics are beautiful, so many options & functions that I haven’t even explored yet, but I know I will be using. I don’t know how many of these kinds of apps I have gone through in hopes of helping me stay on track with my life/job. These guys got it right, and this app is definitely a KEEPER!! It’s worth a try and I highly recommend it. Great job on the application directions too!!
