About this app

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. 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.

This is a great notetaking app for taking hand-written notes. I love how customizable everything is. Here are the cons, though: Typing is quite uncomfortable with this app. There's not even the most basic function like creating bullet points. It requires you to download different apps to perform full functions such as importing PDF or adding recordings. The design could be much better. It doesn't look like a paid app at all. No sync feature.

The app is amazing! It is fully customizable. I spent several hours to play with all the settings and now I feel very comfortable with the app. I used before Samsung Notes for 1 year, but abandon it due to very limited functionality and very few improvements over a year. Tried also Squid (not bad but selection tool is limited, scrolling pages is forbidden, and other small but important issues). I do not know any other good app on Android for notes taking. In Lecture Notes, I found solutions to all these issues. Was positively surprised that when I wrote to the customer support, I received a professional and helpful reply within an hour. I can see that the developers did a great job and support their customers.

I think it is great. It is changing the way I study, and take notes. I have to say though, I will find myself having to shutdown and re start my chrome book due to lecturenotes freezing up. Besides it freezing up and having to make me restart my chromebook, I love the app. It has a couple bugs they need to work out in the code to fix the freezing up but I have absolutely nothing else bad to say about it. The way it imports pictures and sizing, placement, everything is superb. I will be reccomending it to many others.
