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.

    Great App, with lots of options available. The most complete note taking app I've found so far. It takes a while to learn all the features the app offers but its well worth the time. Some improvements I would suggest are: 1. Be able to edit PDFs directly (not just import a picture of each page) 2. Be able to export automatically to evernote any update on a note previously synced. (So I don't e

    Could you guys also allow me to make just notes that dust without having to put them in a notebook, that would be helpful. This app is amazing, my word you guys have done a great job. It is so customisable. At first it looked very overwhelming but once you get used to it you will realise that all the features come so in handy especially for math students and the like. I am very satisfied with my

    Great app and very useful. The ability to create and load custom patterns using JavaScripts is a huge bonus, The dev is helpful and very supportive. 24/03/13. Since this previous comment this app has become my most favourite and useful of all. It has been updated and tweaked constantly with great features and tools that really help me in my projects. Love the snap to grid tools.

    Currently using a Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 and this app works great on the device. The only real complaint I have is in regards to the palm rejection as I tend to leave unintentional scribbles when my palm touches the screen occasionally. Other than that, really enjoy using the app!

    How about a handwriting search, like the one S Note has with S finder?
