Handwriting note-taking app for Android tablets. A key design goal is quick response to pen strokes and 100% vector graphics. Developed on a Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet and Galaxy Note 10.1".

* Active pen (digitizer) support on ThinkPad Tablet, HTC Jetstream and HTC Flyer, Samsung Galaxy Note.
* Very fast response to pen strokes.
* "Fountain pen" mode supports pen pressure data, more pressure = thicker line (requires active pen)
* Pinch-to-zoom.
* Double-finger tap to zoom.
* Two-finger move gesture.
* Pen strokes are vector art, zoom does not pixelate your writing.
* "Pen only" mode (optional) disables touch input while writing.
* Android hardware accelerated graphics.
* Open source (GPL), so your notes are not stuck in an opaque file format.
* PDF export (save to SD card, Evernote, Share).
* PNG (raster image) export.
* Can backup/restore your data.
* Ruled/Quad background paper
* Tagging for pages so you can group them together.
* Switch between multiple notebooks.
* Undo/redo.

The n-trig active pen has been tested on the ThinkPad Tablet, HTC Jetstream, and the HTC Flyer. The Samsung S-pen has been tested on the Galaxy Note devices. The basic functionality should work on any Android tablet, but distinguishing pen from finger data and pressure sensitivity might not work on others. Please let me know your results if you try it on another tablet. See also http://code.google.com/p/android-quill/wiki/SupportedDevices

    It appears the developer may have abandoned this project. No updates in 9 months and won't respond to my emails. Keeps force closing on my Note 3 immediately upon opening. Can't use at all anymore, very disappointed.

    I'm not sure if I'm just missing it or if it's not there. The "import" button is one of my most used S-Note features. I love being able to import forms, fill them out, and then export them. I can do it via ezPDF, but integration into Quill would make this the perfect S-Note replacement for custom ROMs.

    Love the new updates that add more to the app but I wish that it had a syncing option that actually worked or giving an option of what cloud storage to use.

    I can't believe I found such a perfect app for writing. I didn't find it until after I got my Think pad but will be trying it on my other Android tablet with a capacitive stylus also. On the Think pad it's hands down the BEST!

    Nice affordable addition to my art apps, SB Pro & Layer Paint. Allows for image import. Needs some basic tools like layers, bucket fill, shape tools, non-uniform transform. Version 10.7

    Fantastic if you have a tablet with a stylus.

    Good but... I like the "pen input smoothing" feature, the best feature in there. But sync does not work. When rotating my device (Galaxy Note 8/4.2.2), I find rotation does not work very well, the layout is kind of broken. No way to organise my notes into folders. This becomes a pain now I'm having a lot of notes. And at last, no more update since septembre 2013. Looks this is being abandonned. :(
