Review by MSU_VetStudent

I love Course Notes! - I have to say, I always find notes helpful to take in class. It makes it easier to study for tests and exams and allows me to write down my thoughts and what the teacher is saying faster. The only thing is, some times written notes can get messy when you’re trying to write down stuff quickly and notes can get lost and mixed up in your folders. Course Notes has dramatically changed this issue. All my notes are in the same spot. I can easily find notes and also can easily type my notes. They look clean, organized, and being able to edit or add images later is so helpful. I absolutely love Course Notes and would recommend it to anyone.

Version 5.0.3
Review by Duke of Plaid

DO NOT PURCHASE - This app is a waste of your time and money - Having spent hours studying and taking notes for my Medical-Surgical Nursing course, I saved, double-saved, and triple-saved to make sure the information I had just painstakingly typed out was secure. Upon re-opening the program to look back over my notes the evening before an enormously important exam, I am surprised to find that not a single one of my notes in any of my subjects is present. Everything is gone. None of my backups restore anything of use or value. This app is a waste of your time and money. The developer apparently cannot implement a feature so fundamental and important as a proper “save” option, let alone functional iCloud syncing. Little to no information about how to use the app is available both within it and from outside sources; the app blog hasn’t even been updated since mid-2011. Why this app still appears so readily when searching for education and productivity software is beyond me. There are far more functional, useful, and usable options available.

Review by Legmelle

Almost there. - Handy and organized app for taking notes over multiple subjects. Truly rich text editing. Lacking the ability to export the file and anything but HTML or to print without odd formatting. With those issues addressed, this could be the definitive note-taking app.

Version 5.0.3
Review by Metafx

Still has many problems - I have been searching for a good notetaking app because of deficencies in other apps that are currently on the market. I tested this app out to see how it prints and exports to PDF and when I did so nothing shows up. I typed text in a note and saved it but nothing shows up when I go to print. Also another essential feature for taking notes, the bulleted list does not allow you to tab+shift the hierarchy of bullets to the previous hierarchy. For me, these features are essential and are broken on this app. I like a lot of what this app is doing with voice sessions alongside notes and its ability to structure and create new notes but until the functionality related to *taking* notes is fixed, this app is unuseable.
