Some of you have asked me if Notes Plus is truly a combination of many different note-taking apps. Short answer; YES. But that is not necessarily a good thing and here’s why:
- Notes Plus has handwriting recognition. But do I use it? No, because Nebo does a better job.
- The app has both vertical and horizontal scrolling, customizable page sizes and templates and it even has a wider variety of pens to choose from. Is that a good thing? Yes, if it worked for me, it would be a great thing.
Notes Plus has too many choices to go through when starting to use the app. Some might find that a good thing. Personally, it just slows me down and this is the same problem I have with ZoomNotes.
I could use it for my OCR needs, but Nebo is better. I could use it for taking my notes, but, Notability works better for me. With all the pens options available and the customisation features in Notes Plus, I don’t understand most of them. That is mostly because I don’t use them, so I haven’t bothered to learn them. In short, the app is just overwhelming. With any software, the simpler the better.
