How I feel about Notes Plus

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:

  1. Notes Plus has handwriting recognition. But do I use it? No, because Nebo does a better job.
  2. The app has both vertical and horizontal scrolling, customisable page sizes and templates, and 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 to take my notes, but Notability Noteful is more convenient for me. With all the pen 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.
