Do you:

Look at your notes and wonder what they mean?
Pear Note can jump straight to the point in the recording where you typed that note, so you can listen to what was going on at the time and use the recording to interpret your notes.

Find that your notes have large gaps?
Pear Note lets you navigate to the end of the notes you did take, so you can listen to what was going on when you zoned out.

Key features:

Records keystrokes and synchronized audio
Pear Note records audio and synchronizes it to the notes you type, placing them both on a timeline. Since keystrokes are kept on this timeline, you can easily find what was being said during typing.


Instantly jump to anywhere in the recording using the text
Not only can you jump to anywhere in your recording by using the timeline slider, but you can also use your text notes. Just tap anywhere in the text and playback will jump to the moment you typed that character. Gone are the days of scrubbing through a recording to find what you're looking for. Just tap on your notes and you're instantly there. Once you're there, Pear Note will show you what you typed as you typed it, so you never lose your place in your notes.

Type your notes in rich text
Unlike most of the other iOS note-taking apps which only allow plain text notes, Pear Note provides offers rich text note-taking, including:

  • Bulleted and numbered lists
  • Highlighting
  • Styles
  • Bold, Italic, Underline
  • Inline images
