      Microsoft OneNote vs Notability opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Microsoft OneNote is still a legitimate alternative to Notability, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Same draw and text anywhere functionality. It also supports PDF annotation and sync backup.

      Handles PDFs by converting to screenshots, which eliminates all the advantages of the PDF format (text search, vectorial graphics, lightweightness...).

      OneNote is awful. I get especially annoyed that you can't really make the note full screen because the side panel with the notebook/section/pages is always there

      The app OneNote is pretty close and would be a pretty good alternative but the web version is not the same thing and doesn't sync. If they could give all the features of both versions at the same time it would be a great alternative.

      You cannot record your classroom session and have the notes you take appear as the professor is talking, you cannot search for words that you've taken, you cannot slip the screen (eg see the powerpoint on one side and take your notes on the other).

      OneNote doesn't handle editing of PDF's as easily. It requires file conversion and doesn't intuitively save annotations over the pdf being edited.

      Zoho Notebook vs Notability opinions
      Some users think Zoho Notebook is a great alternative to Notability, some don't.
      Notability is very focused on handwritten notes and sketches. Zoho Notebook is way off in this comparison

    3. Take beautiful handwritten notes or annotate PDFs on your iPad, and now even on your iPhone.
