This is the "iPhone only" version of Notebooks. If you want to run it on your iPad, too, you might want to pick the universal version of Notebooks, which is available here on the App Store, too.

Notebooks provides you with convenient ways to quickly write down notes or carefully create beautiful documents, store and organize files, and manage tasks and projects. It converts documents to PDF or produces eBooks with just a few taps, and even offers an optional, full featured PDF Reader. If you are into Markdown, Notebooks is as well.
So if you want to manage all your documents, writings, notes, tasks and files in one app, Notebooks is exactly what you are looking for.

What you might be able do in a handful of unrelated apps, or what you can try to achieve in a collection of paper based notebooks, you can easily do in Notebooks, which fuses the power of multiple apps. This is what it combines:

• Text Editor and Note Taker
• Word Processor
• Markdown Composer
• HTML to Markdown Converter (Markdownify)
• Task Manager and Reminder
• File Storage and Organizer
• Voice Recorder
• Clipboard Manager
• PDF Converter (including encryption)
• eBook Creator

Its robust Dropbox and WebDAV synchronization options make it easy to share your collections of documents not only across multiple iOS devices, but also with your Mac or PC. Dedicated desktop versions of Notebooks can seamlessly pick up your work exactly where you left it on your iPhone or iPad.

What Users Say

"Notebooks is my workhorse. I use it every day and all day to manage all my business and personal stuff. It has replaced my daybook and project notebooks entirely - and done so with efficiency and style. It's still the best!"

“Notebooks is a wonderful App, which is so much better than the dozen other note apps I tried. It is sophisticated, in an unassuming way, so that you find yourself greatly rewarded and being productive without sacrificing time/effort to the App. I cannot tell you how much productivity I have gained. I am having a huge amount of fun, I use it constantly, more than the phone on my iPhone in fact."

“You are GTD in every way that makes it efficient and makes me efficient.”

Some More Detail

- Notebooks allows you to conveniently write, capture and organize your ideas, notes, reminders, journals, diaries or details of life that you want to keep close at hand. If you need to take an important note, or search for one, you'll always have the ultimate notebook at your fingertips.

- Notebooks stores and displays almost any document you want to carry with you: text and HTML, PDF, MS Office or iWork documents, web pages, photos, videos, music and even your Palm memos. Everything you would usually print out and file you can put directly into Notebooks, without adding bulk.

- Notebooks also keeps your task lists and lets you tick off your to-dos as you complete them. You can divide your projects into nested sub projects, which makes them easier to handle, and with Notebooks' links you can cross-reference to documents which may be stored elsewhere in Notebooks. When a task reaches its due date, Notebooks' badge on the home screen reminds you of pending business, and an optional acoustic alert tries to draw your attention.

- Notebooks provides tools to further process your documents; you can convert them to PDF or turn them into eBooks, but you can also merge multiple documents into one, or split meeting minutes into separate tasks and route them directly into your inbox.

So you see, whether you want to draft a business presentation, type a chapter of your short-story, save web pages to read later, write an entry in your diary or journal, tick off your tasks, or just capture notes and ideas on the go, you need to have Notebooks today.

What's New

Improved Editing with Advanced Extra Keyboard Keys

• The "forward delete" button removes the character *after* the cursor; tap and hold the button to delete the rest of the current line (this is what ctrl-k does on macOS).
• "Advanced forward delete" ([§]) deletes words, sentences or whole paragraphs with a single tap.
• More buttons of that type are available, to delete up to the end of a sentence, paragraph, of up to a specific character. These keys are detailed in the online documentation.
• Another new extra button ([AbC]) provides access to the text transformation options "Capitalize", "Make upper case" and "Make lower case" for the selected text.
• Tap and hold the Undo button to select undo or redo from a menu; this saves space on the row of extra keys, but a dedicated Redo button is still available.
• Use the new "##" button to set, increase or reset the Markdown heading level for the current line, independent of cursor position. Tap and hold that button to reset heading.
• Tap and hold "@" or "#" on the row of extra keys for a list of context tags that you have previously used.
• When adding a new set of extra keys, Notebooks offers new presets and provides a link to the online documentation; it is worth checking that out.
• Function keys have a darker background color to differentiate them from regular extra keys.
• After rotating the device, the currently selected set of extra keys remains visible.

New Word/Character Count Options

• Tap to toggle its display modes, tap and hold to change its transparency.
• The new display modes optionally show relative position of cursor within the text.

General Improvements

• Optimized the brightness of black theme, in settings especially.
• When copying text from a plain text note, the pasteboard contains the *plain text* version instead of a formatted version of the text. (This may be relevant when pasting the text into another app when Notebooks' custom font or formatting are not desired.)
• When automatically extracting context tags from text, don't interpret TaskPaper's "@done" notation as a context.
• Time stamps: when just a single format is activated, cmd-T (external keyboard) inserts that time stamp instead of the default format.
• Showing more "smart albums" when adding photos from the Photos app.
• Support for evernote:// links.


• Fixed crash when trying to access the user's photos.
• Fixed the layout of formatted documents while search terms are highlighted.
• When creating a new plain text note, auto correction is immediately active.
• Dropbox sync now silently ignores conflicts due to illegal characters and continues the process.
• Fixed the occasional "sticking Done button" issue when hiding the keyboard after editing plain text documents.
• Markdown conversion no longer fails when text contains emoji symbols at the end of a line.
• Fixed a date display issue when presenting email messages.
• Respect dark theme setting for formatted preview.
