ZoomNotes app review: a powerful note-taking utility-2020



What we have here is perhaps one of the most powerfully comprehensive iPhone notes app available. The Zoomnotes app provides you with all manner of incredible features for writing, annotating, importing and exporting, inserting audio and images, and much, much more!

The best iPhone apps for note-taking

Make handwritten notes and sketches with notes app for iPhone on virtual paper, huge WhiteBoards , PDF files, images and MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents (via GoogleDrive).

Sync your documents between your iPad and iPhone with iCloud. This app is compatible with any capacitive stylus pen and also with the top electronic pens on the market including the fabulous Apple Pencil.

I’ve seen different developers try their hand at making a note taking app for iPhone. And to be brutally honest, I often wonder why developers even bother because many of them offer very little above and beyond what you can achieve with the native iOS Notes app.

ZoomNotes, on the other hand, blows the competition squarely out of the water. I’m truly astounded by what the developer has achieved here, but let’s take a closer look to see what exactly is on offer.  Check out our best note taking apps list for more options.

With this app, you can zoom right in to a document and write on it in that format while still being able to see the zoomed out view set to one side. This is great for seeing how minor changes to your work affect the bigger picture.
