So I’m very excited because notability is a very popular IPad application for note-taking and sketching so this one should give you a full outline just before we dive in a huge Thanks to rob C from paperless June for coming on and I will be doing the video over on her channel all about things through for students if you’re looking to invest in that as a student and if you guys pass over to op C to dive into Notability. Hey guys, my name is Rob C. I have a youtube channel called paperless student I’m very excited to talk to you guys about my favorite notetaking application called notability Thank you very much Francisco for having me on your channel. I’m really excited about this I’ve been paperless for three years now And that means I do all my studies on my iPad Pro and most of my assignments whenever I can My channel mostly focuses on how I achieved that if you’re interested in going paperless with your studies or your business Make sure you subscribe to my channel after this video There are many note-taking applications on App Store and I have tried most of them but notability remains my go-to study application I have Hundreds of notes in the application as you guys can see and I’m certain that I will not be replacing that ability anytime soon So I’m going to talk to you guys about my favorite features in the application and these are basically the main reasons why I prefer Notability over any other available note-taking applications? The most important feature to me is writing I love an application that makes my handwriting look and feel natural and not a villain. She does that for me very well No matter how great an application is or how many cool things an application can do for me if my handwriting looks terrible or if my handwriting doesn’t feel natural then that application is useless So as a medical student, I have a lot of studying that I do and I find a nurse ability I can write for hours and not get tired. My hand has an ache afterwards it did take a little bit of getting used to when I Started because I was writing on plus but that really took a few days and once I got used to it I really enjoyed using notability. This is the main reason why I keep on going back to not ability As a general rule they are exceptions of course notability does well with cursive handwriting Where is another application called good notes, which is a great alternative is better for print for those people that print their handwriting Basically the difference this would be cursive and this would be print. That’s how I differentiate the two My second most favorite feature in AHS ability is the audio recording feature this sets notability apart from any other note taking application that’s available at the moment and very useful for students and Professionals alike as long as you take notes, you will find this very useful I record the audio while I’m taking my notes during lectures and classes and then I use the recording to review my notes When I’m reviewing my notes the application animates my notes and I find that mind-blowing It’s been three years I’ve been using this application and I still get excited about this I Can skip through the sections of the audio by simply tapping a section in my notes if you’ve done any recording in the past you realize that most of the time you have to kind of listen to everything or try to Fast-forward and sometimes it might miss sections. But with this feature you can go exactly where you want to go on the audio You can also Speed up the audio if you want if you wanted to be a bit faster bit slower you do have those options I cannot overemphasize how useful this audio recording Tool is especially if you have a lot of notes and you have a lot of things to get through The third thing that I love about notability is the vertical scrolling I love the fact that I can see my previous page or that I can at least see the last sentence on my previous page And because this helps me to have a continuous flow of my thoughts with horizontal scrolling Which is the kind the scrolling that you get in good notes. I find it a bit difficult to Keep track of what? Writing and so I find vertical scrolling is really useful not only for my thinking process But it’s also better because I can scroll my page up and this allows me to write even on the last Sentence of every page which is something that’s really difficult to do in goodness The fourth reason I love notability is because Notability is always getting better It had the most useful updates in the last year and a few days into this new year We already had another cool update which I’m already excited about It’s not a perfect application. But I love the fact that the developers of the application. They’re constantly improving it and making it better I’ve done a lot of reviews of different applications and notabilities team The developers have been the most responsive and I find that amazing chances are if you don’t like something and you contact the developers They they will try to something about it which I can’t say for any other application the fifth reason why you’d want to go for notability why I like Notability is because it is the only application that supports splitview within the application Of course the iPad pro allows for split viewing different applications But in our separation you can actually have two Sets of notes side by side and you can compare them with each other or you can transfer notes from one place to another That for me was my favorite update from last year because I can afford to have my rough notebooks and my proper final notebooks within the same application notability costs $10 and Appstore and one thing I forgot to mention about the updates and notability is that I really like the not the fact that Notability is still giving out updates for free. So notability is a one-time purchase application and all their great updates in the last year in the last two years have been free and this is really important to me because Applications are starting to lean towards paid updates a lot and I find this Annoying and unfair because they are charging a lot of money for updates eligibility has been updating great Massive improvements to the application for free the sixth important thing that I wanted to talk about About notability is that notability is one of the best applications? for saving space on your iPad iPads any IOS devices do not allow for memory expansion So it’s really important that you save as much space as you can if I go to my iPad storage and I just want to show you notability is the application that I use every single day for my studies and For taking my final notes, but you will notice that notability is only using about 400 megabytes of My space on the iPad and this is really important It’s something that you really need to take note of because most note-taking applications They take so much more space and they have much less information And It’s also very handy and important when you want to export and share your notes as PDFs notability creates files that are about 25 to 50 megabytes per file which is about 10 pages long and the file gets bigger if you put more images into it but by far notability creates the smallest files if you want to share your files with people digital handwritten notes of very big files and Not a lot of applications have found a way around this Those are my seven reasons why I absolutely love notability. Hopefully you guys found this video useful give it a thumbs up if you did and if you have any questions if you want to know more about Notability, make sure you check out my youtube channel. I have done a lot of reviews, ‘unless ability. Of course. There are a lot of Note-taking applications available for taking notes, but I strongly believe that notability is the best Thank you very much francesco for having me on your channel
