You start by taking a picture of a note, and adjust its contrast. The processed notes only take a fraction of storage requirement of the original image (typically ~400KB vs. ~2.5MB for the source JPEG), which means you can store 6x as many notes for a given storage quota. But, despite the small size, you'll still be able to generate full-fledged 1200 DPI exports when needed.
- lasso-select any element which can then be moved, scaled, or removed,
- make lines thicker or thinner,
- or use the provided eraser tool.
Moreover, editing is done with vector-like accuracy: scaling or rotating parts of the image won't reveal any pixels. This gives you unprecedented freedom to reorganize and cleanup handwritten assets.
- Meaningful tags can be set, that will help you search through all your notes.
- Annotations can be added as well. These textual descriptions are archived along with the images, and are fully searchable.
- Drag & Drop lets you move notes to different notebooks (iCloud, Dropbox…), or tag them by dropping these on a specific tag. On iPad, Carbo even allows importing images and exporting notes to other apps to achieve an even more productive workflow.
- Apple Pencil gets some refined support on iPad Pro. Carbo takes full advantage of the Apple Pencil’s impressive sampling rate (240Hz), prediction & correction capabilities for zero perceived lag, as well as pressure and angle sensitivity. These in turn enable more expressiveness for an amazing sketching experience.
- Blackboard/chalks combos
- Paper with several pen styles…
