Cloud Sync

Alles super, aber die Cloud Sync zwischen Mac und iphone/iPad ist fehlerhaft und ungenau. Mitschriften, die ich am Mac gemacht habe wurden am iPhone nicht angezeit und deswegen habe ich iCloud Drive nochmal aus- und eingeschalten. Dadurch wurden alle nicht synchronisierten Dokumente gelöscht (keine Ahnung, warum diese nicht synchronisieren konnten, iCloud funktionierte bei Apples Notizen App einwandfrei). Glücklicherweise hat Notability über meinen Dropbox Account ein Backup gemacht und ich konnte die verlorenen Dateien wiederherstellen. Leider funktioniert die Sync weiterhin nicht. Zwischen iPhone und iPad ist alles super und auch der Mac erhält die Dokumente vom iPhone, aber Mac zu iPhone funktioniert nicht. 5 Sterne gibt es wenn die Sync funktioniert.

Toller Funktionen … aber

und vielseitig einsetzbar, aber … immer - immer - immer Probleme mit dem Sync. Geht - geht nicht… Das nervt unglaublich.

Great app! But….

First let me say, I love this app. I use it everyday to keep all my PDFs in one place. I’m a university student so the annotation and higlighting comes in super handy. If I could reccomend a single app to any student it would be this one. Its just perfect and well worth the money. BUT…. I REALLY wish they had their own sync feature- not an iCloud based one. I can only use a limited amount of files in the sync feature until it becomes full. If notability had a seperate sync feature (like iStudiez Pro for example), then it wouldn’t fill up my iCloud so quickly. Otherwise the app is absouloute perfection I adore it and I’ll never stop using it.

Use ita ll the time

I’m a university student and I use this app all the time. Originally I was using evernote, but I didn’t liek that I had to pay for a subscription. I then switched to microsoft one note, but it was buggy. When I was airing my grievences about my experiences with evernote and onenote to a classmate, he recommended notability. I haven’t looked back since. It does everything I need it to do, and it syncs with my all of devices (iPhone, iPad, and MacBook). For each course I create a folder, load the lecture slides and take notes, while recording the audio. Its a nice way to refer back to lecture notes with audio. I also like the fact that its backed-up and synced with iCloud, it makes it easier to switch from my iPad to MacBook. Finally, I also load the textbooks into the course specific folders, makes it easy to find everything I need pertaining to the course I’m workign on.


Formattazione del testo molto scarsa, spesso non rileva le formattazioni scelte e crea dei pasticci sulla pagina (per esempio testo sottolineato che non rimane sottolineato, mentre quando lo cancello mi rimangono solamente le sottolineature). Mi aspetterei problemi di questo genere da una applicazione gratuita, non da una a pagamento. Per questo le due stelline scarse in attesa di miglioramenti

iCloud Backup flaw

I am a Technology Integrator in a school PreK-12. Middle School is who uses Notability the most, some on iPad and some on MacBooks. The biggest complaint I get is the option of using a different iCloud account as a backup other than the iCloud account associated with the device. I myself installed Notability on my home iMac so I could work on projects without having to bring my work Computer and iPad home. My Computer is setup with a personal icloud account. So, my attempt to do that was fruitless. You can choose ANY Google Drive account to back up to, WHY can’t you have a choice of iCloud? Work on it boys and girls. Make it happen.
