After I bought my iPad, I searched for applications that could feel like normal notepad or something similar. It took me some time, at last, I found Noteshelf through AppAdvice.

  1. What made you choose Noteshelf for your note-taking needs? What are its 3 best features?

First, Zoom – this is the only reason I chose Noteshelf at the very first time. Second, Noteshelf has the smoothest handwriting. Third, Noteshelf lets me write on PDF which is very useful. And oh, with the latest update, now I can easily erase or edit a picture. I use a lot of pictures from Google in my notes so before the update, I had to be careful before placing the picture and writing on it. So thanks for the update Noteshelf.

  1. What kind of notes do you usually have in Noteshelf?

I’m always listening to sermons, maybe 3-4 times a week. So, I have so many notes about that. When I design brochures, flyer, etc., I always use Noteshelf to make a draft.

  1. Can you tell us more about your winning entry? What made you choose it as one of your best notes?

I always wanted to make eye-catching notes. I have this close friend who takes awesome handwritten notes. It’s so freaking awesome, even the art lecturer wants to use his notebook to make it a study material for other students. I was inspired by my friend. Even I wanted to write notes that looked great and amazed people. I wanted people to look at my notes and say “Wow, that’s an awesome style to write notes”. And, that note which won the competition is the closest to his note.

  1. How would you recommend Noteshelf to a friend or colleague?

When I see my friends using an iPad, I always recommend this app. For me, Noteshelf is essential for iPad users. This is one of the most important apps that I have. I may lose my iPad but not Noteshelf, I have so many notes in it!

People always see me writing something using my stylus. They always find it interesting when I’m writing on Noteshelf. Many don’t know that you can write on an iPad using a stylus, so they really find it amazing. One day at my church I was writing my sermon, a woman beside me asked what’s that app I’m using. I let her try Noteshelf. She was excited and amazed to see the smooth handwriting Noteshelf provides.
