The closest to Digital Paper.

5.0 last year

Comments: It has been a huge time saver for me, and is now the default reference & thinking tool I use when doing complex research.

Pros:

Great Interface, simple and easy to use. Using it on a digital pen enabled device, like a tablet layout input make it worthwhile. As one of those people who still loves scribbling and noting things down, having an easy tool is a big deal for me.

Cons:

While it can integrate with two of the most common reference managers, the ability to import would be nice. There are standardised formats out there, so its not dependent of these two.

My Go-To Service for Research and Idea Creation

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: I use LiquidText to research topics, collect and annotate articles, and generate ideas for products, writing, and teaching. I can annotate, make connections, and generate new ideas easily in an organic environment.

Pros:

LiquidText make it easy to import PDF files and to convert web pages into PDF files for import. Its workspace makes annotation fund and easy and allows you to connect ideas. Its search function brings related ideas together. I find it easy to use, and functional enough to meet my needs as a product creator, writer, and teacher.

Cons:

Some of the interface of LiquidText is a little clunky, especially when a workspace gets filled with text boxes. They have alleviated clutter a bit by allowing nested work spaces.

Best for docs, PDF and sharing purpose

5.0 6 months ago

Comments: Best for teaching purposes, sharing docs and managing/editing PDFs .

Pros:

As a professor, I found this really helpful for making all the notes, sharing those to the class, controlling the access of the shared notes and managing all books and docs at the same place. I can edit the PDF files accordingly and then distribute it to the students. so, for teaching purposes, trust me nothing is better than this.

Cons:

notes taking experience could be a little bit better. My writing feels so different in this and I really want this to improve this feature a little bit more.

Monthly plans are little expensive but worth the price

4.0 6 months ago

Pros:

Some really cool features that are only present in this are really great. I can store any kind of doc and then edit it with almost every editing tool it provide. Works well when you have Apple ecosystem and have LT in all devices with syncing turned on. Best app for managing documents and PDF files while making the notes by default integrated within the app.

Cons:

The price of the monthly plans is a little bit higher. Also, all the features are not available in every plan so its like for any specific feature, we have to pay whole price of that plan but still I would say, its worth the every penny that you pay
