Ok but probably could be better. I thought this would be good to help me take better notes for things I needed but you can only save to Dropbox which I no longer use for one of the same reasons that I rated this low, it's plan amounts. It doesn't support Google Drive or One Drive storage. It's very user friendly either. Uninstalling and will try something different.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We have the Dropbox integration on the Business plan if needed. Feel free to sign up for the trial here: I'll pass along your feature request for Google Drive/One Drive. Thank you!

Recent update no longer allows for zoom on photos. Huge issue. Edit: the developer response is completely incorrect. I was not talking about the software zoom, but in fact being able to zoom in when taking photos! I need to take pictures of the slides in my physics courses and I can no longer zoom in to get the pictures I need. I just paid $90 for this product and it's basically become worthless to me now.

Thank you for the input! Otter does not currently support zooming in while using the Otter camera, but we will consider it. I've gone ahead and tagged your request for our team to review. You can take photos using your camera app and add the photo from album. Email us at with the subject "App review" if you have any questions!

App was awesome until they decided to take away the ability to use my device's camera for their own camera ui. I can no longer zoom in when taking photos, which is a huge problem. Please understand that otter live syncing audio with photos is also what made this app good. Uploading from gallery is a very poor alternative to "fixing" this. Please remove your camera UI and let it be the way it used to be because this is actually just horrible. Major step backwards with this update.
