3.0 out of 5 stars App Awesome - Developer Customer Service AWFUL! August 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
I do not usually write reviews however I do read them before purchasing anything. This Notebooks Pro easily became my most - used app. I have used it all throughout the day everyday. I'm a list maker and note taker. Until I downloaded this app I used paper spiral notebooks - for EVERYTHING. I've been very happy with this app until 2 days ago. My Kindle experienced a crash of sorts. When this happened I contacted Amazon to see what I could do about recovering information that had been entered into apps, specifically Notebooks Pro. The AMAZON customer service was very helpful. She did all she could do on her end and even went further by attempting to contact the developer, DroidVeda. She could not get a response. I have also contacted the developer also to no avail. The information recorded in Notebooks Pro is only good if you can get to it. I'm very disappointed because as I said, I used the app all day everyday. IF the developer's CUSTOMER SERVICE had attempted to assist me I would've absolutely given this app 5 stars. But a product is only as good as its customer service.

This app is wonderful. Awesome features and a wonderful user interface.To be expected, the pro version does not have ads, which to me, makes it worth it. Exactly what I was looking for and much nicer without ads.

It seems to be a well designed app but I don't understand why anyone would still use this kind of note taking system. With EverNote, Google Drive, Google Keep, or any of the other cloud based note taking apps available, you can access your notes from any device, have reliable backup, control exactly who can see them, share with others selectively, not have to export and import when you upgrade devices, not have admob and adsense in your notes app, and access your notes instantly from your computer where you can do more with them. Why would anyone use such an old school limited note system when newer technology has made it essentially obsolete?

One reviewer noted that after a crash she lost all her notes and the developer wouldn't even respond to her questions. Why take that risk with your work, notes, thoughts, etc? Just go with a cloud based notes app like Google Drive, EverNote, Google Keep, or the others and you'll be much happier with the features, anywhere access, and backup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoying this app. December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
I read and write a lot. It's great to be able to keep separate notebooks for a variety of topics. I also love the customization and the ability to play with the colors, covers, and such. And of course, the password protection is a plus...I don't have to worry about things getting erased or altered by little hands playing toddler games on my Kindle!

3.0 out of 5 stars Its fine January 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
I like the app and how it works. I like the fact that I can use different covers for the different classes that I am enrolled in. I still would like to see some tabs inside the notebooks as there are different aspects to a class (ie like a lab) that I can insert into the notebook instead of creating a new one. Otherwise the app works really well

If this app looks familiar, it is because it's a variation of Diary Pro, which was the FAOTD about a week ago. My issues are the same with this app as with the prior app. This one lets you create multiple notebooks as opposed to a single diary. But the same problems as in the earlier app still exist.

You can create a password, but in creating it, the password is hidden, so if you're not watching as you actually type, you can't tell if you mis-entered, and there is not a confirmation field where you enter it again. So, once you set it, test it right away before actually entering any data, because, as the app warns you, you cannot recover your password.

To test it, or if you use this app, to make sure your info is private, make sure you go back to the main page of the app before exiting; if you are on a page of a notebook and exit, you are able to go back to that page without entering a password. So, so much for the password. I've left the app, gone into other apps, and then gone back and right into the page I was working on.

You can backup to Dropbox. The export is only usable to import back to Notebook Pro. You can also convert a notebook or a page within a notebook to PDF.

There isn't much in the way of instruction, though there is a help page on the main menu. Touching the icons reveals what they do pretty quickly.

You can add drawings and photographs to entries; however they do not show within the page but as attachments.  You can have different fonts in different notebooks, but not within the notebook itself. You can search entries.  

Settings consist of a limited number of color themes, backup and restore settings and fonts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good December 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
There are AdMob and AdSense in this application. That and access to the list of accounts is a little bit too much for the paid version. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Apps January 24, 2013
By Iola
Verified Purchase
I have a note apps on my Kindle Fire that works rather well and all my posted topics are saved as listings in a file. Every day I read or text to speech or listen to audio books when I come across interesting words or words that I can puzzle out based on the sentance but I am not sure of it true meaning I collect them and put them in my vocabulary file. I also collect quotes from books, videos documentaries and movies, over time I had to open to many files to find what I wanted or to add new information to those ongoing files. There had to be a better way to keep track of all this information and my personal thoughts so I started looking and found Notebooks (free version) downloaded it, loved it so I bought Notebooks Pro the price was right. On checking my old note app I noticed my newest vocabulary word was missing (bummer), I transfered the rest of my words to the Pro created a vocabulary book, quotes book, personal book with more to go. It took me very little time to figure out how to navigate the Notebooks Pro add books, title them, choose the texture of the book cover enough to get started. There is more to learn about this apps and I'm well on my way, I can type in, write free hand, choose the script I want, color of the background and print what else can I ask for but most of all every topic has it own book, Nice!! You can't go wrong with this one it also has a search function.
