I was a big fan of Nebo when I first started using iPad Pro and pencil. I wrote about 2017 with great pleasure. Nebo felt a bit like the future of tablets. It did what all the handwriters demos from decades ago were right around the corner. You write and Nebo understands the text.
But over time, Nebo felt awkward. It was always necessary to request an account for syncing my notes. It did not work with iCloud sync. The search was poor and the application was rarely updated. With version 2.0, MyScript Nebo has solved half of these.
The library's leadership is somewhat better. In particular, I'm glad that the app now supports global search across laptops. Earlier, I had to know which notebook I was interested in before I searched.
MyScript Nebo has always had top notch handwriting recognition and in my use this has been perfected in version 2. I can write with ease and then extract almost perfectly plain text.
The Nebo Recognition engine is extremely accurate and fast. The addition of a double crane for pencil 2.0 is a bonus in Nebo 2.0. It is now quite natural to write and quickly delete errors.
Nebo still suffers when you insert Ad Hoc charts. These are inserted as special bjects. The additional steps interrupt the fuel flow.
I prefer to take notes in Notability because I can easily add charts and sketches next to my notes. Nevertheless, the fluid and almost magical capture of handwriting in Nebo is a pleasure.
Nebo is $ 8 and only available for iPad. This is another reason I prefer Notability, which is also available on iPhone and Mac.
