LectureNotes is an Android app for note-taking by handwriting on the screen, in particular with a stylus.

It has been designed while having a user at university (or at school) in mind, for instance a lecturer who is using it for preparing her/his lecture or even for actual teaching (by writing on the device and projecting the screen content for the audience) or a student who is using it for taking handwritten notes during a lecture. However, it has found many users outside university, for instance businesspersons who use it for business notes and sales presentations or artists who use it to create sketches and drawings.

Its major target devices are tablets with Android 3.0 or later (it is developed on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with an S-pen, and an Asus Nexus 7, a Samsung Nexus 10, an Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and an Asus MeMO Pad with an Adonit Jot Pro and a Wacom Bamboo stylus). The basic functionality works on all devices with Android 3.0 or later, but some which are hardware-dependent such as pressure sensitivity might not.

NOTE: There is a free trial version to test if the app is right for you. The free trial version is fully functional with the exception that the number of notebooks is constrained to two, with no more than eight pages per notebook.

    Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Definitely worth the money. I use this to take all of my university notes. It makes engineering homework less painful with easiness of drawing! The settings are very in depth and customizable. Exporting notebooks to pdf for printing is excellent. The input filters to smooth curves are brilliant in fixing my unsteady writing with my stylus. My only complaint wo

    Bought this based on other users consistently good reviews. People talk about "learning curve" but I struggle on functionality alone. How is this app worth a second glance when put next to Fiinote app?? Really ? I got Samsung Note 10.1 2014 WiFi on CM12 so note taking solution for research purposes mainly is a must. Perhaps this gets great use and even then I struggle to compare in favour of this

    This app is perfect for taking notes, with lots of tools. For a future update, a curve tool would be great to see.

    I use this for taking notes during fast paced grad school lectures (handwriting notes from scratch as well as annotating pdfs). I got frustrated at first trying to learn how to use all the features but once I got the hang of it, I realized that it's an amazing app that's more than worth the little cost. Thanks!

    Use it to take notes on meetings and classes. The fact that you can import pdf's is a great plus, but it also has one of the best note taking apps to use with a Samsung Note
