Features in detail
The best handwriting recognition
Nebo offers the world’s most accurate handwriting recognition, driven by powerful, ever-evolving AI.
Handwrite your notes, adding lists and indentations as well as a range of emoji with your pen. When you're ready, convert to typed text, ready to share.
Erase content, add or remove paragraphs and space, define titles and emphasize text with swift, intuitive pen gestures.
Switch between writing by hand, typing and dictating without breaking your flow.
Create responsive, handwritten notes that reflow as you reorient your device or adjust layout. Your page expands as you write, while all your content remains resizable - even handwriting.
Make your notes stand out by adding and annotating images and photos. Add sketch objects to draw freely on a blank canvas.
Draw diagrams by hand, editing and repositioning elements freely, then convert them to typed text and perfect shapes. Diagrams remain editable and interactive when pasted into PowerPoint.
Use math objects to develop equations and matrices across several lines, then paste into other apps as images or LaTeX. Nebo can even solve simple calculations for you.
Add freeform sections to regular pages to write and draw freely with no limits on position or placement. Freeform content can be copied between pages and to other apps.
Write, draw, brainstorm... the freeform page is your zoomable creative canvas. Freeform content can be copied to regular Nebo pages, ready to convert, or pasted into other apps.
