    It has a very intuitive UI. It's easy to zoom, pan, erase in various modes. There's the insert space feature, you can move stuff around, etc. Also exports are quite easy and it automatically saves notes in html.

    After a first pratice where it is poor you see that it's minimal but very functional and it become easier to control thing than xournal. Pdf export is great, writing is better than journal, making frame is quite easy better than xournal. But you don't have the option for drawing circle.
