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.

    This is a great app wether it's for taking notes during lectures or to simply use it as an alternative to paper to write down your calculations (for maths, physics, chemistry, etc). Cheers to the devs! Also, I have a small suggestion for the eraser; could it be possible to erase a bunch of writings just by doing a circle around the writings with the eraser instead of manually erasing it (Interact

    Definitely - the best of all. Where to ask a small technical question? There is something in the LN what causes the crash of my 3rd party clipboard app I had installed. This app has a service and permanent floating triger and always when I use the text or cutter tools (I know that this is that frame causes (and is the reason and source of the troubles) an exception and crush of the app I had alrea

    It works great for my medic class. I can take all the notes I want. with the scanner attachment and the recording I can record my lectures and input my class documents right into my notes. The ability to export is huge! I share notes with class mates through Dropbox all the time!

    It has a wealth of options for customizations, like nothing I've seen on any mobile app. I love how it easily exports to onenote. Works really well on my galaxy note 4 ,and takes full advantage of stylus and digitizer. It is so well worth the modest cost. One request: please add easy export to Google Keep. Thanks!

    I chose Android over Apple for this app. The application just keeps getting better. I hope people support the developer by buying the app as it is frequently updated.
