There are downloadable covers, and creating a custom cover is fairly\neasy. I personally prefer to use a stylus with these types of apps; it feels\nmore like pen to paper. Noteshelf works with several smart pressure-sensitive\nstyluses, apple pencil, and the developers plan to support additional ones in\nthe future. "]]],[1,"p",[[0,[1],1,"Pros:"],[0,[],0,"\nNoteshelf comes with plenty of options for pens, colors, papers, and covers.\nThe amount of available customization is also nice, with the ability to create\nvarious palettes, covers, and types of paper. It offers common export features,\nsuch as email, print, and several cloud-based options. There is the ability to\nimport images and PDFs, and to mark up PDFs and then save them as copies. The\napp is updated on a fairly regular basis, and the online support is very good. "]]],[1,"p",[[0,[1],1,"Cons:"],[0,[],0," The\nexport function offers only two file types to export \u2014 as an image or as a PDF.\nThis can be somewhat of a restriction for users. An issue of greater concern is\nthe limit when exporting to only five images or 20 pages of PDF-format files.\nThis occurs only when exporting via email, but it\u0027s still not fun. A workaround\nis to export to Dropbox and email from there, but that adds a whole other step\nto the process. Although the app does offer wrist protection, it can be spotty,\nwhich is not very helpful when you\u0027re in the middle of an intense note-taking\nsession. The last item that should be corrected: Once placed, images cannot be\nmodified. All editing must be performed prior to placement in the notebook.\nAgain, this is easily addressed by deleting and re-inserting, but the\nadditional effort should not be required.
