Review from Christopher Moore
Good app but.... The extra features should not be an in app purchase. I can understand games but most people don't backup or they upgrade causing your purchase to disappear. Don't punish honest people.
Malware report made me delete it.
Best note taking app that supports the active pen. Premium purchases are worth it. Much easier to use then LectureNotes, but not as customizable. There is no latency in regards to pen input. The pen chooser is quick and intuitive, but there is room for improvement. I purchased all the premium features and among them my favorites are the highlighter and PDF import. Premium paper patterns are only available as a subscription service. The cloud backup (also premium) implements Dropbox or Box as the backup service, which works fairly well as a backup tool. However, I would like a cloud sync feature (like Dropbox on the PC or like Google Drive) so that my notes automatically sync across devices. Right now, it works more like a backup service then a sync service even though it uses Dropbox. Your changes on one device will not sync to the other device, you have to do this manually by restoring from a backup and saving a backup.
I recently switched to squid for my work notes, because of its ability to work offline, edit pdfs, save directly to my phone (note 4), work with my stylus, and locally backup notes. I've used a number of the more popular notetaking apps for work or personal notes, and so far am pleased with squid's capabilities. I think it is definitely a developing app, with a lot of room for improvement, but most people would find it useful and user friendly. A couple freatures I would like to see is the ability to have notebooks within notebooks (for better note storage) and a close-up mode similar to snote or inkredible (I like taking notes on letter sized paper, which is a little frustrating with this app. The infinite page works well though). Would definitely recommend giving it a try!
Thanks for the response devs! I really enjoy this program. I use it for creating music charts to practice along to and also scanning my existing music into PDFs for mark-up. It's really useful for that. My only suggestion would be a single touch page turn (maybe an option in view-only mode) to make it easier to turn pages while playing. Right now, I have to export and use Kindle to have easier page turns.
Change it from 5 star to 3 star. Overall is good, I use it for note taking at class using my Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 With S Pen. Problem is, when I writing at the lower end of the screen (wide ruled, A5, potrait), typically at the last line, the ability to write smoothly seem to decrease and my writing become ugly. I try One Note for comparison, and there is no problem at all. I really dont want to change to One Note because of this, cause Squid is easier to use, so please fix it will you..? Just contact me for screen shot.
Awesome app. Easy to use and features are great. Would be even better if there was a more quicker way to include screenshots or maybe import a word document without having to screenshot it. Also would be easier and quicker if you could just swipe to go to the next page instead of pressing the arrow on the top corner of the page
