We live in a time of proliferating platforms and devices, and one of our aims for Nebo is to keep pace with wider developments in tech.

What if you could check, search and share your Nebo notes anytime, anywhere?

Nebo is available on a range of different platforms. You can use the app on iPad and Chromebook as well as compatible Android and Windows devices. But there’s never been a Nebo app for iPhone — until now.

We made a lot of progress despite a difficult year…

2020 was tough for everyone, not least because the pandemic prevented us from spending meaningful time working and being together, in person. But at MyScript we decided to combat separation with motivation.

As 2020 draws to a close, we’re happy to announce a landmark release in time for the festive season: Nebo 3.0.

For technical reasons, most note-taking apps work best with active pens like Apple Pencil. In fact, an active pen is typically the default choice of any serious digital note-taker.

Here at Nebo, we base all our design on extensive research — and our studies show that students have distinct needs when it comes to note-taking apps. So with millions of people recently starting or returning to their studies, we used those observations to shape Nebo 2.7 and its central new feature: the freeform page.

Today, we’re excited to announce the release of our latest update, Nebo 2.7. It introduces the freeform page, a boundless zoomable canvas designed to empower your note-taking in a wider range of contexts.

Here at Nebo we’re obsessed with one thing: making note-taking the lynchpin of a streamlined and productive workflow. To do this, we find ways to make handwritten notes as powerful and versatile as typed text.

No one with even a passing interest in handwriting recognition can have missed the news from WWDC 2020. At their annual event, Apple announced Scribble for iPad alongside improvements for Apple Notes: new tech for iPadOS 14 which aims to ‘make handwriting as powerful as typed text’.

Inspiration can take many forms, but it’s both unpredictable and unreliable. Fortunately for the Nebo team, we have a direct line to our muse in the form of you, our users, and the feedback you provide.

Our users are always central to our thinking. In the lead-up to Nebo 2.6, we made a deliberate decision to act upon your insights. We set out to fine-tune the Nebo experience according to some of your most common requests, which meant aiming for evolution, not revolution. The result was a series of updates, culminating in Nebo 2.6, …

When we launched Nebo in 2016, we were proud to release a game-changing application in the world of digital note-taking. Thanks to our AI-based engine, Nebo was the first to understand ink instantly, and to treat it equally with any digital content.
