      As long as Squid (for Android) does not have this feature, LectureNotes will remain a superior app for academic note-taking. I have been using LectureNotes for a few years, waiting eagerly for Papyrus/Squid to implement this (even meeting the Mr. Hughes by chance and talking with him about this in person!).

      In the meantime, LectureNotes remains better because of its folder organization feature. Squid could be a real competitor, because of its smooth vector-based graphics and infinite pages, but without the ability to organize notes, it is unusable for anything but small-scale (and therefore more trivial) cases. Please add an organization feature and make this app a real note-taking contender!

      Glad to see that this feature request is being taken seriously at long last. Without some way of better organization of notes and notebooks, this product cannot scale, and is useless for those of us wishing to use this product extensively for things like school and research. If you are going to use labels instead of nested folders, please allow for organizing and viewing labels hierarchically, similar to gmail. If, as you suggest, simple nesting of folders is not the right solution, neither is simple addition of tags--this can only push back the issue, as tags also can become unwieldy at large scales if not organized. *Organization* is what is needed, and labeling alone might not fit the bill.

      Consider the case of students, who have many classes, of various subjects. Notes can be grouped not only by course, but also by general subject area, by semester, and by year. Then add further academic research projects, which themselves may overlap with courses or be separate subjects. Tags can help organize this much better than folders, but after a few years of school and research, the tags themselves need organized, or the whole thing can become a tangled mess that can only be navigated by a search engine. Try as we might, we can never completely escape the need for some hierarchically organized data.

      However, even the simple addition of tags alone would be a major improvement of this product, a feature which could be extended in the future.
