What if you could have all your notes, sketches and scribbles in one easily accessible place? Better still, what if you can transform all those haphazardly written notes into legible and understandable information? That is the power of the Samsung Notes app.

Perfect for students, professionals and business use, the Notes app from Samsung is versatile, easy to use, and handy. However, is it worth it? That’s the million-dollar question.

In this review, we’ll take a look at the features of the Samsung Notes app. We’ll also share our honest thoughts about it and how you can adapt it for multipurpose use.

What is the Samsung Notes App?

It is a note-taking app from Samsung that comes with Samsung phones, tablets, and PCs. Those who use Samsung devices can now access their notes across multiple platforms. That is great because it takes out the limitation that comes with reliance on a single device.

If you’ve noted something down on your tablet, you can still access your notes even if your tablet is not close by.

But that’s not all: the app allows users to create drawings, annotate PDF documents and share notes with friends. If you are working on a group project, the app lets you collaborate over documents with your team members.

There’s a lot to like about the Samsung Notes app. Amazingly, you can select the option for handwriting, and the app will recognize and organize your handwritten notes. It takes away the headache of trying to make sense of what you’ve written down.

How does it work?

Open your Samsung Notes app by tapping the app icon. Next, you have the option of creating a new note or importing an existing note.

Creating notes is easy. Simply use the keyboard to write fresh notes, or use your S Pen to scribble notes directly to your device.

Core Features of the Samsung Notes App

It’s almost impossible to find a smart device without some note-taking app or the other. People are busy, and they need to put down their thoughts and ideas on the go.

However, the Samsung Notes app stands on its own. With more than 1 Billion downloads, it has fast become the favorite amongst users.

There might be many reasons for the popularity of the Notes app, but we suspect that it might have a lot to do with the features.

Core features of the app include:

  • Create and edit notes
  • Add photos and voice to your notes
  • Sketch, scribble or draw with different brushes
  • Access your notes across multiple devices
  • Share and collaborate with others
  • Protect your notes with a password

Although this is a Samsung product, users can easily download the app on the Google Play Store or your device’s app store. Actually, you can go straight to the end of this review and click on the link to download the app instantly.

Also, lest we forget, the app is free to download.

Sadly, the Samsung Notes app is only available for Android devices. If you use an Apple device, you would need to go with another note-taking app.


Speaking of other note-taking apps, there are a few out there that deliver outstanding results. Apps like Evernote, for instance, dominate the note-taking digital space precisely because of its multifunctional approach to note-taking.

Others like Butterfly, Noteshelf and Saber offer unique features to enhance a user’s experience. The difference between these apps and the Samsung Notes app is that most apps focus on one aspect of note-taking.

Saber for example is perfect for handwritten notes, while Noteshelf replicates the experience of writing with pen and paper. The Samsung app for notes combines all these features and more.

For android users, we recommend the Samsung Notes app.
