Notability is fine-tuned for and works best with an Apple Pencil (gen 1 & 2).
Highly Responsive Ink: Notability tracks Apple Pencil's position as closely as possible to make writing fast, fluid, and free of lag.
Pressure-sensitivity: To make lines thick, thin, or anything in between, simply apply more pressure to make wider lines.
Dashed & Dotted Lines: In addition to normal strokes, dashed and dotted lines can be used.

Palm Detection: Notability tells the difference between Apple Pencil and your palm, so your notes stay free of unwanted marks while resting your hand on your iPad's screen.
