The notes in the visible margin

Other productivity apps don't let users see their notes and their main document text at the same time, However, MarginNote Reader is totally different and completely better! Now, users can see their notes and main document text all at once, without having to deal with distracting or annoying pop-ups. It's a fundamentally more intuitive and productive way to get anything done, whether at school or at work.

Organize notes by outline & mindmap

MarginNote Reader also eliminates the need for users to lug around heavy, bulky textbooks and notebooks. All of their data is ready for them in one place, and users can organize and reorganize their notes with the swipe of a finger! This ease- of-use is one key difference between MarginNote and other note apps.

  • MarginNote provides a unique way to view a document and your notes at the same time. We have reviewed useful PDF reader apps for the iOS, including the classic iAnnotate and PDF Expert 5, but MarginNote takes a different approach to by actually putting notes and annotations directly into the margins of your chosen document.

  • In a nutshell, I think it is the best solution yet (that I've found) to emulate the usefulness of writing in the margins in a "real" book. Better, in fact, since you can write as much as you want in the "margin" and not run out of space. And it can backup your notes to several cloud services.
