Though the app is nice looking, and mostly worked fast and smooth, there were some problems that made me not want to use it. The major problem is that it's like a typical iPad app. The UI is clean and nice looking, instead of being practical and efficient. You get no shortcuts and you need several clicks to get what you want. There are no tabs or anything, and it's very difficult to get from one page in your PDF to another, or from one note to another. Also, you need to use two finger to pan, even if you have an active pen, AND it takes several attempts before it responds to your swipe. Also, the highlighter is not a real highlighter. It's just one of those pens with low opacity, which cover the text. I hate those. And you can't add margins or pages to PDF files either. For now, I recommend instead OneNote for notetaking, and Xodo for PDF annotations. At least Xodo has a proper highlighter pen, and you can add pages to a document, and it's very easy to navigate.

When I try to export, it lets me select a format, either .pdf or .jpeg or .png, but instead of exporting directly to a file, tries to link it to another app, which never works. I'm not going to pay for premium features because I don't think they will work since what I have already doesn't work. For now I'll use Xodo or maybe Bamboo.

Love the android version. But can't get it to launch on my new Microsoft Surface Pro 4.And I happily paid for the Android version and am willing to pay for the Windows version.

This is a great product for use with note taking as you can (with the purchases, which are worth it) edit PDF's with whatever you want. It is very nice for writing equations, and also allows you to type directly with your keyboard. Being able to type, draw, and modify all at once make this a great note taking tool. However, as I mentioned in the title, it is optimized for a tablet, and ported to PC with much of the ease of use relying on touchscreen capabilities. If you have a touch screen, you will love this. If you don't have a touch screen, you need to look at another app. *Note: You cannot directly save the pages, you need to email them to yourself (as a pdf, jpg, or png). It is a tad annoying, but once it is set up with your mail app, isn't too much of a bother.

You can't save notes because it is supposed to auto-save everything. I created a seven page lecture note that it did not save. It shows the seven pages but it blank! Lost my notes for an entire lecture!

I took 3 stars for two major bugs I found.First it cannot export on windows 10 (or the send to device option finds no device to export to) and secondly I can't change pages with my fingers/pen .I can only change pages of the imported pdfs with the keyboard arrows which is very annoying. However since I was using this app on the android before I do believe it has a lot of potential so I'll be waiting for fixes and updates! Cheers! Edit: And it seems I cannot turn back into normal view once I hit the "full screen" button. This app requires a lot of hard work and fixes still..
