- What is BKNotes?
BKNotes is a note-taking iOS software when you are reading books, which helps you make excerpts, notes and collect your thoughts, ideas, comments during reading time. It focuses on the book-reading activity, especially suitable for students, researchers, avid book readers or anyone who enjoys reading books.
- What is the difference between version BKNotes Pro and BKNotes Lite?
- Can I upgrade to BKNotes Pro directly from BKNotes Lite?
BKNotes Pro is the paid version with full advanced functionality like OCR, barcode-scanning, data backup/restore, password protect, etc, while BKNotes Lite is the free version which is for trial purpose and therefore only output random parts of OCRed text and doesn’t include data restore feature.
No, BKNote Pro and BKNote Lite are actually different stand-alone app, which means you cannot upgrade directly from BKNote Lite to Pro version. You have to buy BKNotes Pro in App Store if you want to upgrade. However, backup data from Lite version, and restore the data in Pro version will transfer all your notes data and book library to new bought BKNotes Pro. So you won’t bother to re-input all your old notes or risk losing any data.
