About LectureNotes

LectureNotes is an excellent note taking app for students and teachers on Android devices who are interested in serious lecture note-taking. As stated by the creators at Acadoid Developer the app was designed while having a user at university /school in mind. For instance, an educator could easily use LectureNotes for teaching (by writing on the device and projecting the screen content) or a student for crating notebooks, draw and write notes. 

LectureNotes Review

Because LectureNotes is such a powerful app and very customizable we first recommend that you spend some time and optimise it for your needs. When you first launch the app you will see an empty notebooks board. At the top of the screen there are three icons: ’plus’, ‘trash’ and ‘share’. Click on the ‘plus’ icon to create either a ‘New notebook’ or ‘New Folder’. After this a new dialog page will open that will allow you to choose a name for the new notebook, the cover colour, the paper size, pattern and colour. After you created your notebook you will then see it on the notebook board. On opening the notebook you will notice all the writing tools you can use to take notes. To get the full package we would opt for the integration with these 2 app extensions:  LectureRecordings and LectureVideos . Having audio and video recording can be very useful for checking your notes or reviewing a lecture.

This is clearly a distraction-free writing tool, with no blinking icons or social media notifications, which shows your pages in full screen. Though the basic functionalities will work on all devices with Android 3.0 or later we recommend using the app on tablets (the application was developed on a Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet with an N-trig Stylus). A stylus pen is mandatory for a smooth writing but the app also allows text layers for entering text via the keyboard.

It will take you some time to get used to the LectureNotes application but once it is set up you’ll use it over and over again. During this review we used the app to create a mind map, resized imported images and took notes from a recording to see if the app can keep up with the writing speed. We found that scrolling and zooming is helpful when you have lots of pages or you need to see the details in a drawing or a picture.

Capturing data with the help of an app and a mobile device clearly offers more benefits over the traditional pen and paper. We have to say that there are not a lot of note-taking apps in the Android Marketplace that will offer you such a powerful set of features:

  • You get four standard pencil colours, three standard pencil widths, seven standard eraser sizes, and eighteen custom pencils
  • Useful drawing tools such as line, empty and filled rectangle, empty and filled oval or circle, and text
  • Formatting options such as cut, copy, and paste within notebook pages and across notebooks
  • You can add multiple layers in notebook pages and have multiple pages simultaneously visible on the screen
  • Image and image set import into notebook (including image import directly from camera)
  • Import single- and multi-page PDF files and export your notebook as compressed PDF  (requires the free PDFView app to be installed)
  • Allows audio and video recording and replay (if you choose to integrate LectureRecordings for £0.85 and LectureVideos for £1.71)
  • Keyword attachment to notebook pages and automatic indexing
  • Insertion, deletion, and rearrangement of notebook pages
  • Allows sharing and import of notebooks and notebook pages and folder organisation
  • Offers backup and restore of notebooks board
  • Evernote integration (if the app is installed)

There are simply too many features in this app to list them here so please also check the developer’s description. The app is very robust and has the necessary power to give users an experience that is fluid and feels natural. Palm rejection algorithm will assist your note-taking perfectly so you won’t have to worry about your hand touching the screen.

Don’t say no before you try it! The developers are offering a free trial of the LectureNotes app where you will have access to all the features on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, an S-pen stylus, an Asus Nexus 7, and a Samsung Nexus 10. The app receives the top rating of 5 stars and the EAS Recommended Status.
