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.

    Definitely the best and easiest to use, and the one best at replicating paper feeling, but lacks cloud sync which means that it is worthless if I need to have the same notes on multiple devices (which for me is a must).

    For the price, it does a pretty good job!

    I have a Samsung Note 10.1 and couldn't use the built in SNote because of some functionality limitations. I'm an undergraduate student in Engineering and needed an app that had much more functionality. LectureNotes is the best note taking app! I've tried so many others and none of them met my needs.

    Perhaps if the layout of the settings and configuration pages were categorized in such a way that it simplifiesd the technical stuff and presented options easierly (step wise) with user-friendly categories and terminology it could really enhance this already amazing app. I also struggle many times with the colour palettes.
