Are there recommendations for handwriting note apps for iPad Pro that support Apple Pencil? I prefer those that aren’t similar to OneNote or Evernote.
Making your own notes is good on Notability but if you like annotating on slides pdfs or adding lots of pictures and screenshots try GoodNotes. You can add straight lines and record your voice to sync with your handwriting on Notability while GoodNotes is good for searching through your handwritten notes with OCR and they have an iPhone app so you can access your notes wherever you want. I use both so I can refer to my notes on GoodNotes while making new notes on Notability with Split View.

*** EDIT CORRECTION I overlooked that the OP had included ament about her specific situation. Thanks to Chris Terry for pointing this out. Making a *personal* copy is legal at least in the U.S. as long as you own the book or other media item. I did assume the OP was asking about a book she doesn own since there are many of these questions on Quora about how to illegally copy something. My mistake and apologies to the OP! And totally ironic too since I frequently get frustrated at questions that don provide necessary details in ament. ud83dude44 *** horizontal-rule Original answer for transparency and however it may be useful The best italic way is to buy italic a digital copy of the book. Stop being a freeloader and honor the fact that books are relatively inexpensive and theyre incredibly inexpensive relative to the value you get. (Since you want to copy this book you clearly see the value in it.) Plus making a digital copy of an entire book is illegal and unethical in any decent country. Respect that the author and publisher put many hundreds of hours into bringing that book to the world and pay them the small amount of money they ask in return. That said if this book doesn exist in digital form here what I suggest Contact the publisher and offer to pay for a digital copy. Ex that youre a big fan of this book you own a print copy and why you like a digital version. They might say no or they might not reply but they might just say yes. You never know. If youre successful then you would have the best digital copy you can get. Otherwise Im not giving any suggestions for copying it yourself because it illegal and disrespectful to my fellow authors and publishers. Would you suggest to me ways to steal your friend car? No? Now you get it. Answered What is the best way to make a digital copy of a book? italic

Are you interested in note-taking sketching or drawing? Note-Taking well Apple Notes is free and might be sufficient. Good 3rd party note-taking apps are in the upper price range relatively. Notability s is very good but 199. Sketching Paper s and Tayasui Sketches are both excellent and free(mium). Paper is better for quick sketches while Tayasui offers more tools and layers.
