Notability is good, but I prefer Nebo. Notability and GoodNotes both use Nebo's handwriting recognition engine, but implement it differently. Nebo formats well and allows easy linewrap, while Notability places a hard return at the end of each line - which means that if you copy the text into Word, you must d a great deal of reformatting. (Maybe I just haven't figured out how to override that problem in Notability.) In Notability, you must select ech section or paragraph that you want to convert to text, while Nebo does it automatically. However, I do prefer the drawing and diagraming of Notability over Nebo. Notability does allow multiple yypes of backgrounds (different width of lines, graph paper) which may help you when you write, while Nebo does not. Notability also provides pre-formatted forms and also allows you to import your own, 2 significant advantages over Nebo.What is your favorite notes app to use with the Pencil and why?

Notability will give you a active box that will open a browser to where you video is stored (YouTube or file).Can one insert videos on notability or goodnote

I use Notability for many things - but- I must admit I am becoming more impresssed with Apple Notes ( especially if you are looking for an Evernote substitute).
The actual hand writing aspect of Notes is excellent. You can put handwritten notes into your note ( which may be a combo of typed and handwritten) without it being an “ extra” - like a drawing.
It still lacks some aspects of the other note taking apps but for a good all rounded, that works smoothly across all your devices, and is becoming a viable option for Evernote - as well as Notability or Goodnotes - it is certainly getting there. I just hope they continue to work on it and don’t just leave it and occasionally - every few years add an emoji.
The one thing I don’t understand in AN, is the tool set changing from a note taking environment to a drawing environment. I mean, sometimes you can change a line thickness - sometimes you can’t. Sometimes you have a ruler, other times you don’t.I noticed i was able to put videos on AN I like it but its hard getting used to it after having the flexibility of Notibility.,
They support it as a stylus and, according to Twitter, are bringing full Pencil support "soon". So thought I'd throw it into the mix
Is there a way to get PDFs from the Mac into Notability on the iPad without having Notability on the Mac? I've been looking at the Notability support site, and the import functionality seems to require the Mac software.
If you have experience with OneNote and Notability, do you have a preference?
Not having my Mac right now to check, but AirDrop should do the job.
I like neither. OneNote has way too much interface clutter leaving you little over 50% of working space. Notability looks old school in a bad way. But that’s just my humble and personal opinion, and your note taking needs may well totaly overrule my ranting ;-)
