Nota­bil­ity is great for two kinds of jobs: cre­at­ing notes and an­no­tat­ing

docs. If you’re look­ing for a re­li­able note-tak­ing app that works with Ap­ple Pen­cil, en­ables you to con­vert hand­writ­ing to search­able, ed­itable text, im­ports PDFs, and syncs with the Mac app via iCloud, buy Nota­bil­ity.

You can in­put PDF, DOC, PPT files, text files, Ex­cel spread­sheets, and im­ages – the Drop­Box im­port is par­tic­u­larly handy. You can share in many ways, and drag and drop into other apps and be­tween notes.

With PDFs, you can an­no­tate, high­light, and copy con­tent but you can’t edit. You can group notes by sub­ject or sub­ject di­viders, but can’t re­peat ti­tles.

Nota­bil­ity’s au­dio record­ing abil­ity can be used to add voice notes to a doc. You can add an­no­ta­tions as you record and they’ll ap­pear at the right point dur­ing play­back. You can then ex­port a note in a zip file con­tain­ing either a PDF or RTF file and your au­dio.

Hand­writ­ing recog­ni­tion is su­perb even with a cheap sty­lus, but the app is el­e­vated when us­ing Ap­ple Pen­cil. Text recog­ni­tion is the ic­ing on the cake for this bril­liant app.

The app’s hand­writ­ing recog­ni­tion is su­perb, es­pe­cially with Pen­cil.
