@amrith thanks! We’d love to, once we really nail down the Windows version.

After trying many apps of its kind, Penbook is the one app that has made me switch from OneNote once and for all. Because of the wide variety of templates it offers, I’ve always been able to find what I’m looking for, and it just feels like writing on a traditional paper notebook, while having all the advantages of drawing on a computer.

As said, there’s pretty much nothing to object about this app: it just does what it promises to do. Nonetheless, there are some bugs (it may just be my PC) when I try to save a document with a specific template: when I open the app again, the document is there, but the template is blank, so I have to select it again every time.

Pros:

It’s the closest we can get to the feeling of writing on paper while doing so on a PC with all its advantages.

Cons:

You may encounter some minor bugs when changing the template, but nothing too serious.

But why use this over OneNote, which can sync to all your devices and works best with Surface devices?

@blobget hi Yousef - we find a lighter app with a page-based layout has lots of complementary uses with OneNote. OneDrive sync is coming soon!
