This text is an abstract for Notability, a note-taking app available on iPad, Mac, and iPhone. Notability offers a powerful and simple note-taking experience, and has been recognized by Apple as an Editor's Choice. The app is versatile, allowing users to jot down thoughts, import and annotate textbooks, sync notes with audio, and sketch. It is suitable for students, professionals, and hobbyists, providing all the necessary tools.
Notability provides more than just traditional paper and pen note-taking. Users can write on various paper templates with customizable spacing and backgrounds, take notes using multimedia tools like pencil, highlighter, text, and audio, mark up textbooks, documents, lecture slides, assignments, and images, perform calculations using Math Conversion technology, and search for anything within their notes, including handwriting and imported documents.
The app is designed to provide a natural handwriting and sketching experience. It offers a lifelike, vector-based digital pencil that is fine-tuned for responsive and precise writing (compatible with Apple Pencil and Logitech Crayon).
Notability helps users stay organized and paper-free by keeping all their notes in one place, eliminating the need for physical notebooks and reducing paper waste. Notes can be organized using customizable subjects and dividers.
An audio playback feature allows users to record lectures and meetings, syncing the audio with their notes. During playback, tapping anywhere on the notes brings them to life in real-time, and users can search or copy time-stamped text from audio transcripts.
Notability also offers a presentation mode, allowing users to present ideas full-screen without distracting toolbars. The app supports multi-tasking with multi-note, enabling users to work with two notes side-by-side and drag and drop content between them.
The app allows users to import and annotate various file types, including PDFs, DOCs, PPTs, images, and GIFs. It also includes built-in document scanning for easily creating searchable PDFs. Typing within the app is full-featured with left-aligned alignment, word count, and formatting options.
Notability provides a platform for sharing and finding inspiration. Users can publish their notes in the Notability Gallery for others to see. They can also browse notes from the community, search for specific topics, save favorites, and download templates.
Notability is available as a free download with limited editing and features. The premium, unlimited note-taking experience can be unlocked through an annual subscription. Subscribers gain access to unlimited edits, audio transcripts, auto-backup support, and iCloud sync. They also receive MyScript Handwriting Recognition and Math Conversion technology.
The subscription auto-renews unless canceled and is charged via the user's Apple iTunes account on an annual basis. Prices may vary by location, and subscription management can be done in the account settings. Family sharing is not supported.
