  2. Feature a line of stylus pens PLUS....

    You could come out with a nifty line of stylus "pens" in fun colors with your logo and then with the purchase of the stylus could come a "stylus-holder-only" feature. Something ingenious that everyone will want to have but will have to get the pen first! Just a thought bc I went ahead and purchased a stylus for using the app anyway since I figured my finger would get annoying. Since many people might be doing that same thing for Squid specifically why not tap into that market (& create a unique "squilus," a squid-stylus, pronounced squ-eye-lus".) But in all…

  3. Scheduled Local Backups

    Cloud backups have the ability to schedule and run automatically, but local backups do not. This would be a great additional feature to have.

  5. Home settings

    Add the possibility to select the page to show at the app startup (recent, starred or a specific category) and to change the view of the notes (image or list, for example)

  6. Search through handwritten notes

    Handwritten notes will get converted to digital text in the background so they become searchable. This would happen just like Google Keep so that a note will become search almost immediately after you save it.

  7. Cast to a Hangout.

    At the moment you can only cast to a chromecast device, but chrome browser allows you to cast directly to hangout meeting... would be great if squid also supported this method of casting.

  8. Add drop shadow option to shapes/text.

    For PDF markup. This helps the markup to stand out more from original document. Also, curved lines, arrows and callouts.

  9. Allow editing of files in place, without making copies

    I want to open a PDF in Google Drive, annotate it, and then save that file back to Google Drive without creating a new file, and having one file annotated with notes and the other plain. iAnnotate on the iPad does this and it was an integral part of my workflow as a teacher, and I'm really missing this on a Chromebook.

  10. Choose note when importing image

    Right now when you "share" an image with Squid, it automatically makes a new note. It would be really useful if you could first choose the note where you want your image.

  14. Interoperability with other pdf markup software

    I go back and forth between mobile devices and Windows desktop (so I use Squid and Bluebeam Revu markup software). It would be really nice if the pdf's created from each would recognize the elements created in each. Not asking for Squid to have the same tool set as Bluebeam - just would like to be able to have the entities created in each selectable for basic functionality (move/ delete/ change color/ etc.). Also would be nice to have the bookmarks, flags, hyperlinks, etc. in a pdf available in Squid.

  15. Support for Google Drive and Classroom without the Android Apps!

    Support to use Google Drive or Google Classroom without installing the Android Apps would be so helpful! Students and staff get very lost on how to import or export to and from Squid since Squid requires the Android apps to be installed. Couldn't you force users to sign into their Google account to allow access to Drive and Classroom without the apps?

    Google Classroom

    We've had discussions with Google, but, unfortunately, the APIs we need to integrate with Classroom do not currently exist. If this changes in the future, we would definitely like to integrate Classroom more closely inside Squid.


    Google Drive

    We recently added support for automatic backup to Google Drive. However, this only gives access to Drive files created by Squid. We will continue investigating whether we can provide a safe way for the user to select a file from Drive from within Squid, without having to use the Android app. We continue to hope that Google will update ChromeOS to allow the user to access their Google Drive from the file picker without having the Google Drive Android app installed.

  16. Lock screen unless two finger pan is used

    Add ability to lock the screen against inadvertent touches unless you use the two finger pan....the screen is constantly jumping in the current version when in pen mode due to Palm interactions...previous versions had this very useful option which is now gone :(

  18. Open source?

    If Squid were open source the mighty developer army could do MANY of the trivial things listed in this feedback forum and you would have TOTAL control on don't pull requests get accepted and which don't. I would love to help make one of my most useful apps even better.

  20. Full size page as thumbnail

    Would it be possible to add a feature that shows the whole first page in the thumbnail? Right now the thumbnail is zoomed to the scale with which I closed the note.
