  • Wow!

    By rustyhinges
    I've been an iOS user for a long time and this app is a game changer. It's an intuitive way to take notes and present. I'm planning talks and books. Love it.
  • good handwriting

    By Audiophile31441
    Looks good, feels good. Lacks scrolling page navigation. Awkward interface and annoying to navigate, and lack of help/instructions. Includes 2 unhelpful instructionals.

  • Was good

    By SammyrDav
    I really liked this app when I first got it. Lastly everything I try to open doesn’t load all the way and is blurry and laggy. I can’t find their contact information unfortunately. If anyone has it let me know please. Thanks!
  • Crashes frequently; update needed

    By It's broken!
    I would love to be able to give this the five star rating it deserves. I’ve used goodnotes for a couple of years now. Recently it has taken to crashing several times a day. Please update and fix this issue so that I can upgrade my rating!

  • Lost Pages of Notes from Two Device Use

    By Sunny해
    I always keep auto backup turned on. It turns off on its own and results in lost notes. I’m so disappointed.. this was my go-to app but if I’m losing pages and pages of notes, it is not worth the risk! If you use two devices, beware! It used to be great and I loved how one update would update to the other. Right now, it’s just erasing my notes... GoodNotes4 doesn’t ask you to choose which. It overwrites even if the newer/recent or latest notes should take precedence...
  • Nice but limited

    By CLC85
    For what it is it’s nice. I like the notebooks and the interface. I wish the pen used the pressure sensitivity more. The range is very limited. Makes it harder to do pretty calligraphy to make notes more noticeable. I like the search feature. The selection feature needs to allow one to rotate too, not just resize. I like the vector pen. The writing feels good. But there are times when I would like to sketch, and the vectoring gets in the way of that. If we had a pixel based pencil to choose from, that would be cool and expand the features. Maybe allow Procreate brushes to be imported. Is there a way to do custom covers using photos? I don’t see it. I like the small size grid to large grid options. I wish the paper came in dot grid too.
  • Needs updating

    By Ab173
    Given the new notability update, I am not sure that there is any comparative advantage to this app. Especially since it seems they have been promising an update for a long time with no update in sight. The app needs vertical scrolling, better file architecture, and some kind of bookmarking/table of contents scheme. It does handle the pencil nicely.
  • Best app yet! But...

    By yourfavecritic
    Everything is great ! Just a few things that could be fixed I have yet found a way to back up all my notes with out it being a weird file I can’t open.. Also PLEASE add a recording feature like the one notability has, I don’t like anything about notability but the recording feature ! It helps a lot in a college lecture Lastly different pen options would be nice..
