Note-taking apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPad are a dime a dozen but every once in a while, a truly noteworthy notes app emerges. Evernote is one example of an app that takes a relatively boring category and gives it a unique and meaningful twist. Another perfect example is Notability.

First released all the way back in 2011, Ginger Labs’ Notability app has undergone some huge changes over the years. In its current iteration though, it is easily one of the most nifty and useful note-taking apps we have come across for the iOS platform.

From the app’s description:

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.

At $2.99, Notability is worth every penny. For a limited time, however — perhaps to celebrate being selected by Apple as the App Store’s “app of the week” — Notability is completely free in the iOS App Store.
