LectureNotes

LectureNotes


LectureNotes is an Android app for note-taking by handwriting on the screen, in particular with a stylus.

It has been designed while having a user at university (or at school) in mind, for instance a lecturer who is using it for preparing her/his lecture or even for actual teaching (by writing on the device and projecting the screen content for the audience) or a student who is using it for taking handwritten notes during a lecture. However, it has found many users outside university, for instance businesspersons who use it for business notes and sales presentations or artists who use it to create sketches and drawings.

Its major target devices are tablets with Android 3.0 or later (it is developed on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with an S-pen, and an Asus Nexus 7, a Samsung Nexus 10, an Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and an Asus MeMO Pad with an Adonit Jot Pro and a Wacom Bamboo stylus). The basic functionality works on all devices with Android 3.0 or later, but some which are hardware-dependent such as pressure sensitivity might not.

NOTE: There is a free trial version to test if the app is right for you. The free trial version is fully functional with the exception that the number of notebooks is constrained to two, with no more than eight pages per notebook.

I love it I downloaded an image of green engineering paper and set the pixies of a new notebook equal to that picture, then I set that image as the background of the notebook. Once the document is complete it can be exported as a PDF to look just like a scan of the real thing. This can be done for ANY type of paper. It does take a whole to set up the drawing tools and other setting, but totally worth it.

Best note-taking app I've used. I used this instead of the S-Note app on my Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014). Although the pen mark is not as smooth as the S-Note's, the features are superb and everything I needed. It made writing notes fun and efficient with the ability to import images and pdfs then mark them up with minimal fuss. As a medical professional, I need to deal with and sign pdfs all the time. The most important features for me when writing notes are the ability to: - Insert a space to insert extra information when I come across it even after finishing the note - Insert images/tables into my notes seamlessly - Export to Evernote - Sync (via a 3rd party app) daily to Google Drive to keep files backed up. NB: I had an issue when I upgraded to KitKat and could not save/modify my files on the ext SD anymore. The developer got in contact with me within 12 hrs of my previous review and gave me the solution (which involved amending the extsd path name slightly).
