Nebo: Notes & PDF Annotations - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Actually we are a 20+ year old company specialized in Artificial Intelligence (AI) applied to handwriting recognition so yes we have a lot of coding experience.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Having it available for the 3 platforms: iOS, Android and Windows as well as with the best handwriting recognition performances (accuracy, speed and memory).

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Notion: Collaboration, easy onboarding, high productivity, connected to many Enterprise services.
Flow by Moleskine: Because it promotes well the use of pen on a tablet for drawing.

How long have you been working on this app?

5 years. We used to have a legacy note-taking app running on Windows Desktop and 5 years ago we decided to rebuild it to target the mobile devices market.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Targeting the note-taking use case, leveraging all the knowledge captured with a simple pen into our daily digital workflow thanks to our award-winning handwriting recognition.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Nebo is unique in the way it treats handwriting. As soon as users start to write, Nebo starts to understand it. It also offers 100% editing capability with the pen. As a result, user handwriting is as powerful as typed text.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Nebo offers 2 type of canvas: Nebo Notes to capture the information with no distraction as if you are on paper and Nebo Document which acts as a real document but with handwriting. Thus, users can write a document only with a pen. The handwriting is fully editable, convertible and can be mixed with typed text. The handwriting reflows as if it was typed.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Try Nebo and boost your productivity. Share your Nebo notes and documents with others: Nebo comes with a Create Link feature which makes it easy for users to share their original notes.
