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

5 ★By far the best writing experience between the apps I tried, the only problems are the backup system (something like linking with OneNote would be perfect) and the lack of close checked page templates (only medium and large). Nevertheless, this app is worth 5 stars just because of writing experience and quality of the tools.
3 ★I have the ios version on my iPad and loved it, so I bought it on my android phone and was extremely disappointed to see many of the ios features not on the android version. The feature in which I bought the ios version in the first place, the pencil tool/texture is NOT available in this version and that is my biggest gripe. If they were to add it back, I will change my review.
2 ★I wish that while working on landscape mode I could just scroll down and have a full A4 or infinite scrolling , but instead you get a card looking one, its really annoying. Sometimes it gets stuck and I have to close it and open it again. My experience was really uncomfortable and I'm looking for new options to take my notes.
5 ★Coming from squidink moving to noteshelf little by little. Looks real good so far!
5 ★A really enjoyable and beautiful app. I've tried a lot of apps for digital notes and this one is truly my favourite for use on tablet and mobile. It really is a joy to use.
1 ★I initially had a 5 star rating for this app. But I have to change it as not much has changed over one year. No new features, just the same stuff with small adjustments that were there when this app was released on Android. Disappointed user here.
3 ★The App is quite good.. experience was also good bt there must be (add) different separate option to enable disable the favourite pen in tool bar aside of pen section only instead of opening pen section & then enable disable a favourite pen option. Also after enabling the favourite pen selection it should not be placed below the toolbar it's irritating in landscape mode instead it should be placed within the toolbar only.. which will enhanced experience for Notetaking like a good notes in IOS.
1 ★It's a great app. It has a few bugs but it works great. I'll give it a 1 star review because I hate that it obliged me to make a review, after an annoying screen reminding me to write a review appeared for the third day in a row. Also, let me add unlimited layers of folders please.
3 ★I really like this app as compared to other because it gives more smoother experience while writing but there is lots of bug still in this app also App crashes sometimes.
1 ★after the update everything gets unstable, app flash when changing pen, and changing pages, pen styles change twice with the update, first time is all the pen size 3 to pen size 2 , and now with the most recent update the size get back to size 3. Be consistace please. can only copy a current size not sure what is up
4 ★I like it. Using Squid too, and none of them has the sync. Adding WebDAV server support to the Cloud would be great and not that hard to implement. Sending a note from my phone to my tablet, edit, send back - cumbersome.
2 ★I purchased but never used. Not useful like OneNote. If they make it like endless scroll in a page would be the best. However force you to draw and take notes in limited page and continue on other page which is not convenient. I would give 5 star and recommend to my friends if they add this option. Otherwise as I said I could not use at all.
