Works OK as a stand alone app, sync needs work though

The handwriting recognition works as well as any app I’ve tried on an iPad Pro. But the lack of iCloud sync is a big inconvenience. If you have your other Apple devices set up to use iCloud sync, then Nebo's separate “cloud sync”is a cumbersome set of extra steps, requiring additional user IDs/accounts, and external services that would all be seamless if the app just supported iCloud. Disappointing for an otherwise well-designed app.

The other SERIOUS gap in this app’s capabilities is that it does not seem to be compatible with any Bluetooth keyboard. This prevents NEBO from being a single app for all note-taking needs. With the way I use my iPad Pro, I take notes BOTH with the Apple Pencil, and sometimes with the IOS on-screen keyboard and sometimes with a separate Bluetooth keyboard, depending on the setting I am in at the time. This app does not support anything other than handwriting input. So you will still need another vendor’s note-taking app (like Evernote, OneNote, or Apple’s IOS Notes to make your iPad a true notebook replacement. Too bad, because if NEBO simply added these other input options, it would be all many people would need for note taking (other than perhaps a dedicated sketching app if artistic drawing is a requirement)

Great app

I have tested a few note taking apps and find that this one fits best with my workflow. However, in some ways I don’t use it the way it was intended. I rarely export the notes to a text file and don’t find it particularly useful or streamlined when I do. This has a lot to do with how I am using it and is not a knock on the app. I write in all caps, so inevitably it translates to all caps. I have found the automatic formatting to be a little unintuitive and sometimes it does things I don’t want. However, the ability to move lines of text up or down quickly so as to insert text and to delete quickly by scratching out are great. Other apps require selecting a tool and usually require a multi-step process, which just doesn’t work well when trying to take notes quickly.

I do wish there was a way to export the vector form of the hand-written text notes pages - maybe as a PDF. It would also be good to be able to export a whole notebook into one PDF - it would be great if it bookmarked each note page.

READ!!!! Does not work with my pen!!

So unfortunately I purchase this app to take notes for school and I have a cheaper version of the apple pen. My pen is called a pendora and no matter what I try it will not work with this app. I wish the details would have been more clear other than “works great with apple pen” should be only works with actual apple pen. I want my money back!

To the developer who so kindly stated that I didn’t read the read the description well enough, even though you are sadly mistaken. The care you took to make sure that people know that this app does not work with any pen other than the actual apple pen is not fact. Thanks for trying to update me on information that is not listed. please refund me my $2.99

Btw mentioning that the only type of pen that works with this app besides typing your info into app is kinda important
