I recently had a discussion with other moms about how much difficulty our children have taking notes in class. I then did my research and wrote up a post Top 10 Apps for Taking Notes in Class. One of the apps that came most highly recommended was Notability by Ginger Labs. This app allows users to sketch, write freehand, type, add pictures and more. This versatile app could be useful for both children and adults and is FREE for a limited time!

If you would like to download Notability (reduced from $2.99 to FREE, iPad/iPhone) and support Smart Apps for Special needs in the process, we'd appreciate you clicking our link below:

Whether from poor muscle tone or fine motor delay some kids can fall behind in class while writing. I was surprised how many moms advocated for their child to have a tablet available at school to help their child keep up with their classmates. Even if a tablet at school was not an option, many parents utilized note taking apps such as Notability at home.

Luckily, included with all the bells and whistles of this app is a detailed and easy to follow user guide. It could help to flip through and discover all the available features such as auto-backup, selecting themes and zooming in to add extra details.

For added fine motor development, try having kids use a stylus while writing and drawing within this app. If you do not already have one, check our list of staff and user recommended stylus.

This app has all the features I could think of for a note taking app. This app can help with anything from students taking notes in class to parents and teachers jotting down notes during IEP meetings. Type, write, draw, record, add photos and more with Notability. Download now before it jumps back to full price!

Welcome to Notability, a powerful note-taker on iPad and iPhone: sketch ideas, annotate documents, sign contracts, complete worksheets, keep a journal, record a lecture, jot travel notes, or teach a class. With iCloud support, your notes always travel with you! 

Write, illustrate and annotate using gorgeous ink. Notability's zoom window helps you quickly and clearly draw every detail, while the palm rest protects your notes from unwanted marks. Choose the right pen and paper for any project. 

Import forms, contracts, worksheets, documents, presentations, and even books; then use the same tools that help you take beautiful notes in Notability to mark up PDFs. Do you have files in other formats such as doc or ppt? Notability can import these too thanks to Google Drive. 

Type an essay, create an outline, fill out an application, or make a list with Notability's advanced word processor. Choose a font, style, color, and size that enhances your work. Even place text exactly where you want using text boxes. 

Replay your notes! Everything you type, write or add to your note is linked to the audio recording, giving you more context than ever when reviewing. Just tap play and watch your note unfold. Want to jump to a specific point in the recording? Tap a word with the navigation tool and you’ll go to that point in the recording.

Finding information quickly is an important part of note-taking. Use search to quickly locate notes by title or content. On iPad, bookmark pages of a note, filter a PDF by annotated pages, or search your note for a keyword in the page navigator. 

Organize your notes by subject in the library and automatically backup all of your work to Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or webDAV. Also, use these services, plus email, Airdrop, and twitter, to share your Notability files with colleagues, classmates, students or teachers. iCloud will ensure that all of your notes are automatically up to date on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. 

Notability gives life to your ideas, stores your notes, and improves your memory and organization. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we do.
