Note Taker HD

Note Taker HD



One of the first note taking apps designed specifically for the Apple iPad, Note Taker HD has long been known as a powerful and stable application for writing and organizing handwritten notes and diagrams. It can also be used to annotate PDF files. It can shrink your writing so you can easily fit a lot of text on a page. You can read the reduced-size "ink" as if you had written those letters with a very fine pen. It gives you solid functionality and control to produce the pages you need.

Documents are flexibly organized by tags, date/time last modified, favorites, and more, with a scrolling list of thumbnail images of part of each page to help you find them later. You can email one or more pages as a single PDF file, "Open In" other apps, or, if your iPad supports it, print.

Note Taker HD lets you create pages by writing on the screen with your finger or an iPad-compatible stylus. You can either write directly on the page for large drawings, or have the "ink" you write shrunk down. You can write in large letters on the screen rather than trying to make tiny motions like a pencil. You just keep writing and Note Taker HD automatically adds new writing next to the old. To quickly correct mistakes, it has multi-level undo and redo buttons as well as an eraser just drag your finger over the page to erase the "ink" under it.

You can zoom in and out on a page using the pinch gesture while viewing or editing. The Zoomed Editing window lets you see both a zoomed-out overview and a zoomed-in close-up writing area at the same time.

You can use "Open In" in other apps or iTunes to send PDF files to Note Taker HD for annotation.

This App is a MUST have

This app is hands down without any doubt, the best of the best for making notes. I have not used a notepad since I started using Note Taker HD! Everything you need and more is featured in this app. And it keeps improving! Great support. Export is super, annotating documents, handwriting is superb, zooming while writing, add picts, all colour pens, highlights...... I love this app as all my notes are digital and perfectly organised.

The last update is really nice with more and more usefull features.

5/5 stars

Fantastic APP

This is a fantastic app if you want to take notes using a stylus and use it like a pen and paper. Support is great. I emailed the developer and got a reply in 20 mins. A simple reboot fixed the issue. You cannot organize notes in folders though you can assign tags. There is no sharing with Evernote, Dropbox or Box.net like with many other note taking apps. That having been said none of the other apps are a patch on this app for actual taking of notes by hand.

5/5 stars
