I can organize my notes in Notability.
“I use my iPad as a note taking device.”
To organize your notes that you have in Notability, first you need to create a folder for your notes (Ex: Social Studies). If you have notes for Social Studies already, then hold down on that note. Then, drag the note over to the folder that you made. It will go into that folder and then you can add more notes into that folder. You can also make folders for other subjects like science, writing, etc.
