We’re delighted to release the latest Notebook update. Now everything you store in Notebook is encrypted at rest, making your notes and data incredibly secure. Plus we’ve added a visually pleasing (and much requested) night mode, as well as enhanced Apple Pencil support for iOS, and more.
Encryption at Rest: Greater privacy, stronger security
We’ve always taken data security extremely seriously. And we’ve long believed that everything you store in Notebook belongs to you—which is why we’ll never do ads, sell your data, or willingly compromise your privacy. Encryption at Rest (EAR) cements our commitment to user privacy and security. EAR applies to all users, across all versions of Notebook. Now you are the only one who can ever view your notes. Period.
Night Mode: Notebook now even easier on the eyes
We have received lots of requests for a night mode or dark theme. So today we’re delivering it. Night Mode should help reduce the strain on your eyes when using Notebook in the dark. Plus it also looks pretty cool. Night Mode is available in all versions of Notebook. To turn on Night Mode, simply go to the Notebook settings, and flip the switch. Please note: Your Night Mode preference will not sync across devices; you’ll need to turn on Night Mode for each device.
Enhanced Editor: Take better text notes
Taking text notes is obviously a big part of Notebook. We’ve added a new ways to format and style your notes. Now you can highlight text, strikethrough your text, and indent. You can also add horizontal lines to separate your text.
Improved Apple Pencil and Apple Watch Support
The Apple Pencil is a great tool for iOS, particularly the Notebook Sketch Card. Now Notebook for iOS supports Apple Pencil’s pressure sensitivity, along with angle and azimuth. That means you can create curves with different thickness, shade areas, and much more.
Notebook on an Apple Watch gives you an even quicker way to save a thought; you don’t even have to pull your phone from your pocket. Now you can now create audio recordings from the watch face without even opening the Notebook app. Even better, you can record your note as you use other apps on your Apple Watch.
A Few More Things
In addition to the above, Notebook for Web is lighter and faster. Notebook now offers complete Right to Left language support, including Arabic, Hebrew, and Urdu. And we’ve also added accessibility support for iOS.
We hope you enjoy this update, particularly the added security and privacy. We’re continuing to work on more Smart Cards to give you new ways to create notes and save content. And we’re also working on a Windows app. While we don’t have a release date to share at the time, we can assure you its on the way.
