Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

4 ★Still room for improvement I can write almost acceptable, but When it comes to adding diagrams, basic illustrations, important features are missing. I cannot rotate a copy pasted selection , can rotate images but not the hand drawn items. Eraser is not accurate. Very difficult for geometry and physics notes. Writing whitepaper etc not easy. Not able to draw proper angles easy. I did find a workaround by using graphs template but need more ease and accuracy.
3 ★Used on Samsung S6 Lite. It's ok, but it has a few issues that really bother me. Starting with the biggest issue: 1) When you export to PDF, many of the strokes are shortened, so for example, many of my x's can look like y's in the exported PDF. This problem is also quite noticeable where I highlight a word in Noteshelf, but in the PDF it would show the word only partially highlighted. This problem is not present when exported as PNG, but you lose a lot of resolution by going the PNG route. 2) Bookmarks that you create in Noteshelf should be included in exported PDFs, but they are not. 3) The Redo button is hidden and tucked away under a long press of the Undo button. Redo should be a standalone button put beside the Undo button. There is ample space for it on my device. 4) When you make an audio recording and click to play it, the page sometimes automatically zooms all the way out, even when the zoom is locked; this can get annoying. 5) Panning around a page is a bit stuttery at times, especially when you try to flick the screen to try and quickly scroll.
1 ★Horrible app. Constant crashing from trying to export my files. When using the backup, the app claims my pdf was too large for the backup despite having over 200 gbs free. When trying to export separate pages because the app refuses to export the entire document it goes into a cycle of crashing then rebooting. Over the app.
2 ★I really like the app, but lately the writing is A LOT thicker on the exported PDF file. It wasn't like this and it is making really hard to read. This is very bad... Please, go back to the way it was, thank you.
1 ★Personally, I would love to give this app a better score but there is a major issue. It was great for the first week and now whenever I open the app it crashes, forcing me to restart it completely. Eventually it opens but if I try to open it again after some time, same thing keeps happening. IT KEEPS CRASHING. I am seriously considering returning the app, since as great as it is, I am unable to use it properly.
5 ★Wow. Within a year Noteshelf became top android note taking app. Awesome work guys, especially I like your image drag and drop feature on Samsung devices with Samsung Internet on other window. Hope you'll add same feature with other pdf apps too which Samsung notes already have. Last but not least, missing Zoom In Window or Close Writing Window similar to Noteshelf of IPad or similar to S notes or FiiNotes on android, this will increase writing speed lot especially on smaller devices like note.
4 ★I like the application too much, however, I have a problem when I export a note as PDF, my handwriting looks much thicker in the PDF than in the note seen from the application, I hope you can fix that little detail, everything others works perfectly
4 ★Originally we loved this app. We use it for my kids pdf school text books. Recently though I tried to import their new books but the app won't import anything and just crashes. I've tried uninstalling it, updating my tablet, everything I could to get the app to work properly again. Nothing. I'm so sad now because it was the perfect app for our needs.
3 ★It's ok, it still lag sometime. It will be better if I can copy and paste the heavy materials. And the size of eraser is too big. I can't erase small area. I want to be able to choose whether to circle the pen, highlighter, or image to move without affecting anything else nearby or underneath. I like the pen. It works fine, but painting large areas isn't stable yet. As far as I use it, I am liking it more than the samsung note. If you can fix these problems, it will be really perfect.
2 ★I use the app a lot and originally gave it 4 stars. But since the last ~4 updates it has become annoying. Lots of freezes, bugs and crashes. It worked fine when 4-5 month ago. Handwriting at the edges is still not working properly (galaxy tab S6) and also the preassure sensitivity is not well adjusted. Functionality is still good but Samsungs notetaking App improved much over the last months that it's now eye to eye. And has less bugs. I will give it another 2 updates before I decide if I switch
2 ★It works very smooth originally, but since last update, when i export the files into PDF, the handwritten markings become blurry (the handwritings are different between the exported document and the non-exported document in noteshelf). Please fix it since noteshelf is one of the most important study tools. Thank you
4 ★The best note taking app for note devices. Random bugs do appear sometimes such as latency issues.still the most favourite note taking app. I had purchased the same app from my Mac as well. But it doesn't respond well while using graphic tablets. Also, it would be very helpful if we can share notes across different platforms without converting to pdf.
