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.

Best out there The interface takes a little getting used to, but once you spend some time making all your personalized adjustments this one really. the best. Sometimes it can be a little slow, especially when scrolling through imported PDFS, but nothing else has the same feature set at this price and good responsiveness.

Great! This app is absolutely fantastic. Simply the ability to customise the stylus button uses alone puts it above the SNote app. With the custom pencils, layers, and good organisational tools for notes, this app is getting daily use from me at work as an architect. Two things that I find a bit unintuitive though, are: 1. Choosing the file storage location - for all of my notes that I export to PDF, it would be nice to be able to set the location. Currently, the app expects me to type out the directory manually instead of browsing to it. I want to set it to my SD card but have no idea what the directory would be. 2. Rotating with the cutter tool - Feels a bit strange, with my images sometimes mirroring unintentionally. I think it would be better to have the rotate work from the center of the imported item instead of the corner, and have a separate button if a user wants to mirror the image.

Great but... Allow for the app to auto backup to dropbox... More page templates would be great... I use a note 4 + note 10.1 it would be good to synchronise both.. Great app , better than the competition.
