Handy note taking app Notability has just received an update that features a number of design and performance optimizations for iOS 7. Easily the biggest new feature in version 5.1 is the addition of AirDrop support, so users can simply and easily share notes with people around them. Developer Ginger Labs has also added the ability to import plain text files into the app. As another nice touch, users can now take advantage of bold, italic, and underline Bluetooth keyboard shortcuts. The app also natively supports three new languages – Turkish, Russian, and Norwegian. Finally, the update fixes and iOS 7 recording and RTF export issue along with squashing a number of other bugs. A universal app designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Notability can be downloaded in the App Store now for $2.99. While there are a number of note taking apps available for users, Notability still remains one of my all-time favorites thanks to its wide range of features. Before today’s update, the last major changes to the app came in mid-August. Along with universal support, version 5.0 of Notability brought iCloud support, an additional theme, and other improvements.
