  • Almost perfect!

    By dananana82
    Hardly any flaws! I use it everyday and love it
  • Great app

    By zuly0123
    I have been using this app for the past week and I love it. However, recently the PowerPoint documents have been downloading incorrectly and cut off part of the document. Is there anyway of fixing this? Thanks.
  • An App worth purchasing

    By Antgotfans
    GoodNotes changed my life! It’s an amazing app. However, it needs a couple for features. . . First off the app should have the ability to record lectures and turn it into text. Another one could be sharing a document with a peer and editing it in real time similar to google docs. Finally, the app really need more front covers. So, the app is good how it is right now but it can become even better. Thank you!
  • Great app!

    By adlibra
    I am a teacher and have been using this app for over 5 years. It has been awesome to see its growth and enjoyed the changes they made to this wonderful app over the years. It has so many features and only fall short to apps like Notability in a few areas that I hope will be addressed in the coming update. More than anything, I want audio recording, subfolders, and notes side-by-side display. Aesthetics can wait. Thanks Goodnotes developers! 🙂
  • So close to five stars !!

  • Best notes

    By MarloMax
    I honestly wish iOS notes were this good. Personally though I’d like to be able to have more cover options. Mostly though, I'd love the ability to add multiple blank pages to a notebook at once. Possibly when you create notebooks to add as many template pages as you want instead of having to add pages one at a time. Though it syncs with iCloud and my iOS notes are saved in icloud, when I tried to sync it with good notes it only pulls up my word processing files and not the more files. I look forward to see this app develop.
  • Love it!

    I bought the other one but this one is just easier. It offers the covers for each category and just gives a feeling that you actually have journals. This electronic notebook is brilliant. I love the look, the easiness to copy, automatically saves on the drive you prefer. Excellent work on this app.
  • Good handwriting recognition, kludgy interface

    By snoop_z
    App is great for taking handwritten notes on my iPad with Apple Pencil, but best feature is integrated OCR capability which allows me to export notes as a PDF and view them as they were written plus search the text. Only drawback is an interface which requires too many steps for basic things like exporting to another app.
  • It’s a good app for school but....

    By Nikkisuarus
    I’m in Nursing school and there’s so many notes and papers that need to be printed out, thankfully I can just download the PowerPoints and word docs onto GoodNotes! It saves a lot of paper! My only problem with this app is when you download PowerPoints and other documents, the format of the document is scrambled up a bit and or the PowerPoint gets cut off. I have to screen shot a bunch of different slides on the original PowerPoint and have to edit and crop it over the one that gets cut off in GoodNotes.
  • More stable and customizable writing would make this app my dream

    By XxGraeyxX
    I love the fact that I can use this app for my bullet journal, however, I kind of found that I don't actually enjoy writing in this app. I would genuinely appreciate more brush types. My biggest struggle with this app is that I can’t feel fluidity like when I write in some other apps that I love but they’re not as supported by the public so their capabilities only go so far. Not only that, but I really do like using this app and wish that writing in it were a more enjoyable experience.
