    "Probably the best app to take advantage of the new and improved s-pen with its added pressures of sensitivity. It's good enough for professional work on the go if just need a quick sketch or two when inspiration strike. It's now even a better time to try this app out since all of its features have been made available for free."

    "I've recently gotten into the hobby of adult coloring books with my partner and I'm having a lot of fun with it but it can be a little expensive buying new ones after finishing. This is a good alternative for those people who like this hobby and don't want the hassle of going out and buying new ones every time. The subscription offers plenty of new content every week at a relatively cheaper price."

    "It's a nice note-taking app to take advantage of the S-Pen on my Galaxy Note 9. It tracks well with very little lag and it feels like I'm actually writing using an actual pen. It has plenty of template to choose from and simple interface that is easy to use."

    "Ever since getting my Galaxy Note 5 a few years ago, I've switched to using its S-Pen to sign most of the documents that are brought to me. It's a very small step towards a paperless system but it's really convenient as most documents are digital and sent through email anyway. For those purposes, this app is my preferred choice and work well."

    "The Galaxy Note's S-Pen is really good that I have been using it to write some short text and replies. The best one that I have tried so far is Google's own Gboard Keyboard app. It supports both keyboard and handwritten input."

    "This is a good alternative to the popular Squid Note-taking app that features a much simple and minimalist interface. I especially like the template designs that replicate the look and feel of real paper like the ones found on school notebooks or graph paper."
