  • Best way to keep a journal!

    by Observanti

    I love this application. I've always wanted to journal, but i never could stick with it, until now. With FastFinga3 I can jot a thought down, just seconds after it comes to mind. Impulse journaling! Writing with my finger not only is much faster than typing, scribbling in cursive actually uses a different part of the brain, so the words -- and emotions -- flow more creatively. Plus, with this app, I can switch ink colors, type if I want, or even draw pictures. I've passed four months of journaling every day, and now it's a habit, and I couldn't have done it without this app. Give it a try, I think it's worth every penny it costs.

  • Aplicación Universitaria

    by Ezekiell1988

    La mejor aplicación para no tener que llevar un cuaderno a la universidad, sencilla mente lo mejor que he visto y no he visto ninguna otra aplicación que haga lo que hace el fastfinga 3, mi reconocimiento como la mejor aplicación universitaria

  • oh yeah baby ! solid and works great !

    by stikman

    So many many things it does, for the iPhone. ...yeah pappi, (schill reviewer) 'notability' is prob real nice. BUT, it's only for iPad, enjoy !!

  • 5-Star App, Excellent!

    by musicluver79

    I love this app as it acts as a digital pen and paper that I use to write songs when I'm away from my notebooks at home. I love writing songs by hand and not typing as I feel my emotions more through writing. The writing is very smooth and the ink is extremely smooth and realistic as well and looks terrific even when it is shrunk down in size. The developers also have seemed to fix a bug that I reported to them that caused the app to almost always crash. So far the app has not crashed for me since I updated it! Thank you for fixing this bug b/c I love this app! =) Once again this app is amazing. Great job guys! =)

  • Does everything!

    by LSH61

    Sketch pad, note pad (hand written, type), tags, spelling with dictionary, photos, search, object drag and drop, and more. Uses iCloud, too. Best overall app, and works flawlessly. Thank you!

  • Just right

    by jcarter3

    Fantastic workflow, simple and responsive. Export tools are exact ally what I needed. Well worth the price.


    by paloha

    completely thrilled by this awesome app. FastFinga has done to the app world what Apple has done to the smartphone world. Way to go FastFinga! My BEST app EVER!!!

  • Great App! Have some suggestions.

    by Cessna90403

    I use the app a lot for taking notes and I love it. I have some suggestions. - Need conflict resolution for iCloud syncing. If I edit the same doc on 2 devices at the same time, the last device to save wins and wipes out the changes from the previous device. - It's essential to see a status of the iCloud sync. If the status said something like "iCloud sync is done" then I know I can safety edit the doc on my other devices. - The overall problem with using iCloud is lets say I'm editing a doc on the iPad. I close it, but for some reason it doesn't sync to iCloud. I then open the doc on my iPhone and make changes. I close it and it syncs. Once the iPad can sync again, it wipes out the changes I made on the iPhone. - It would be great to have some kind of reminder that I can attach to a document.

  • Good but glitchy

    by freesiabird

    This app has so much potential to be endlessly useful...but it just fails at the most important things! I wanted it so that I could hand-write notes and email them to myself and others. And while the writing aspect has worked flawlessly, the app has yet to let me send an email. In the preferences pane, it lets me add people to the "preset email" list, but it doesn't ever actually give me the option to email them. Plus, it says to separate multiple email addresses with a comma, but the pop-up keyboard doesn't have a comma anywhere on it--rather, it has a period TWICE. Overall, I'm pretty disappointed. I hope they fix these issues in an update soon...

  • Ok

    by Your pappi

    It's was ok. I like it at first then I found another app. It's called "notability " it works a lot better and it's only .99. Not worth getting this app.

  • Albomax

    by Albomax

    It is a very nice application ,but for some reasons crashes too often and doesn't seem to work well on landscape mode in iPad3.

  • No good....

    by Jibjab1972

    Does not work?

  • OCR Fail!

    by Whuzzup11

    Ok, maybe I had higher expectations than I should have had. I think my handwriting is actually fairly good, so major disappointment that when using OCR, I spend 1000 times longer fixing one sentence than if I would have if I just typed my note to begin with. Even writing super slowly and carefully to make sure letters are perfect, and it still can't recognize my words. Oh, and forget using any punctuation. App crashes half the time during OCR download an you have to try to guess how long it will take for Evernote to receive the OCR file before you MANUALLY pull it back in. Really?? Why doesn't it automatically show after OCR is done? Maybe there's an app out there somewhere that is good at OCR, but this is definitely not it.
