iPad Handwritten Note App Notability Is Now Free to Download

The iPad app Notability has long been a favorite for those who prefer digital handwritten notes over rushed typing. Bringing amazing news, the app has most recently been made free to download! So now, anybody can download the app for free and use it. Some additional costs will require if only any user wants to unlock the app’s full range of features.

The App

The fan-favorite app Notability has been used for taking handwritten notes on an iPad screen, preferably with an Apple pencil. It includes amazing features like an array of paper formats, vast collections of brush stroke styles, and an audio recording. This killer audio recording feature is highly useful for interviews and lectures where listening and writing are simultaneous. Through this feature, the recordings and written notes get synchronized. The user can tap on the end portion of the note and hear the audio from that exact moment further on. The app is also available for Macs and iPhones, where it mostly helps in reviewing and correcting existing notes.

The Change

The app was on market for the last 11 years at an up-front price of $9. Currently, Notability’s developer Ginger Labs has upgraded the model, making the app free to download. Though, unlocking all the features will cost an additional subscription charge of $15 per year. For now, the yearly subscription is only $12 for a limited period. The users who won’t opt for a full subscription will have some restrictions in using the app. There will be limited numbers of times they will be able to edit a note, and limited numbers of brushes to save as favorites. Also, after the free time ends, the non-paying users will no longer be syncing their notes automatically to iCloud or any other online storage services. This next-gen model of Notability aims to include more users without the hassle of an initial prepaid subscription.
