With this app, students take a combination of notes on PowerPoint slides as well as blank pages. Instead of having to shrink the screen image down or only use the margins, we allow the best of both. Students can take notes on the PowerPoint view, insert a blank page for additional notes, and with version 2.0, even take additional typed notes as well as many other new features (Images, Zoom, eBook EPUB files, Excel files, and audio and video notes.)
Good question. There are two ways to think of files, as a continuous scroll or individual pages. iPads treat PDF files as scrolls. While you can take notes on the file, you cannot add in even one blank page or attach another file to the notes. By treating files as individual pages, you can take notes on more file types (DOC, PPT, PDF, vers 2.0 will include EPUB and XLS) and insert additional blank pages. Instead of a file-based note taking app, eNotebook is a notebook-based note taking app.
We are glad you enjoy the app. The idea of this app is to add notes to a file, not modify the original file. Just like you would not change a business agenda in the meeting or change a teacher's PowerPoint lesson, the eNotebook app does not allow the user to edit the file. Editing files (original) is better with Pages (DOC) and Keynote (PPT).
