    Note app that really works....

    If anyone really had a note taking app that really worked they'd make a fortune.

    Notesplus has potential but is unusable in current form.

    Notability has good writing but very crude

    Penultimate writes the best but no zoom equals no good for lots of notes.

    Frustrating....

    Not as frustrating as your unanswerable post.

    I would recommend Note Taker HD to you, but I have no idea what you want from a note taking app besides zoom, which Notes Plus does very well (so does NTHD, the best note-taking app out there, imo).

    Care to expand on the unusability of Notes Plus?

    Cheers.

    I suppose it depends on what "really works" means to you. There is a kind of a richness of note taking apps compared to most platforms, even for handwriting. Though I grant it doesn't have it's OneNote yet, but then you're not stuck using Windows either.

    Sorry vague - venting a little I guess. Was asking for suggestions of other apps etc.

    Notesplus has great potential - looks great on page, notes look good if ever get them written, audio recording works fantastic, but recent upgrades have made writing the worst part. It's almost impossible to write in zoom mode now. Just awful. Reviews are slamming them and on their comments on site. They have tried to add ink smoothing but its jumpy and makes it distracting as you write. Another plus, their auto advance is the best imho out there.

    Note Taker HD - I have it too - didn't care for how it advances in zoom, can't tell where to start your next letter or word since you can't see the previous where you left off like in NP. Also no dropbox or goog doc support - a must. Also missing recording. Even notability has that. But notetaker hd does have some fantastic writing.

    What do you mean when you say Notability is crude?

    Take a look at Noteshelf ($4.99, USD). I really like the zoom feature - it auto zooms and you can see the writing to the left so you know where to start up again.

    Plus, you can organize your notes on the note shelf and create custom templates to have, essentially, whatever you want as a page.

    Just a thought...

    Noteshelf has come a long way, it's really slick and smooth.
