    Downloaded this note taking app a few hours ago and decided to write a quick review while using the app.

    Here's a link to the PDF. I created the review by actually note taking within the app itself.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Remember it's just a quick review after using for a few hours....

    Great review and I can only agree.

    The parts I like is how you can delete pages, export to Evernote, Dropbox or e-mail or set it up to print. You can also clear a whole page.

    This is the app I use to take.notes in all four of my classes and it works great. I've been using it for 4 weeks now and have had zero trouble.

    Good luck in school and with this app.

    Thank you guys.... could prob review a bit more but it was late and it was just my first use/impressions...

    I'm also going to be reviewing PDF PROvider at the end of the week after using it at uni. It's a conversion app - converting word, ppt, websites, pages, keynote etc into pdf.... I think I will use this a lot as my lecture notes are in ppt and I'd like to annotate them... it also allows you to split the pdf pages, merge documents and a whole lot more

    Will post it once don :)

    Were you using a stylus for writing? If so which one?

    Sorry, but in this world, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch. You are going to have to pay for excellent apps, such as this one reviewed here.

    That's how developers can create the good stuff - they get paid to make it.

    With that, take a look at neu.notes. It's free in the App Store and it's a pretty good app. Not on par with NoteShelf (IMNSHO) but still, it'll do the job.

    The only thing I am disappointed in with Noteshelf is the quality of the output when you print it. It looks very blurry. Is there a way to fix this? Make it print clean and sharp?

    Has anyone used NotetakerHD and/or UPAD Lite as well as Noteshelf? How do they all compare?

    I am a huge fan of Notetaker (not free) and I have found that UPAD Lite works almost as well and it is "relatively" free. By relatively I mean it only allows you to create 5 different notebooks. This would be fine if you archive notes to Dropbox, Evernote or email for instance to "clear" your notebook. The 5 note limit would be a problem if you like to keep your note in the note application.

    Am I correct that it does not import from Evernote, or sync with a similar laptop based program?

    Am I also correct that it doesn't have handwriting recognition like 7Notes HD?

    I am a power user of noteshelf and love the ability to create and organize many notebooks. Sometime in the last few weeks when one of the updates happened this app became quirky. He wrist protection seems to be interferring with the stylus on the right hand side of the writing space. If you lift your wrist it rewrites fine. Anybody else notice this. Other users in office are having same problem??!

    Yes, I have used both NoteTakerHD and Noteshelf. Overall I prefer NoteTaker over Noteshelf. However, I still use them both. I like Noteshelf for basic, quick note taking. I use NT for most other things because it offer so many more options including text boxes, lines, shapes, etc. you can also make templates that you can creat new documents from. It's just a more robust program for the same price.

    Does Noteshelf allow you to annotate PDFs? I don't see anything about that detailed in the app's description in iTunes.

    The only way I know to annotate a PDF in NoteShelf is if you take one page of the PDF and set it in NoteShelf as a background.

    It's not really designed to annotate PDSs, it's just to create original writing...
