  • Fantastic

    By BoredMindless
    My first note taking app and it’s already greatly improved my work.
  • Password feature needed

    By Elinnaesz
    Password protection needed. Please add this feature. Thanks
  • First App review

    By Waho ho
    I absolutely love this app. That being said there needs to be some changes, mainly adding support for vertical scrolling option and split screen for multitasking.
  • Needs export of one page support, otherwise perfect notes app

    By Rico_927
    Great app, everything is perfect but i can’t export one page through my email, i have to import my entire notebook which is inconvenient and takes much longer if the notebook has a lot of notes Sounds negative but i love this app, it’s made school sooo much more fun and intuitive. Like i said, this app is perfect except for this one small thing. Thanks for reading.
  • Love it

    By plannertiffany
    This is my first time using the app. Just started digital planning and I love it. Very user friendly very good investment
  • Only decent for handwritten notes and importing PDFs

    By Jujumba
    Text/type options are very limited. You can’t do more than one color per text and there are a lot of other basic features missing to actually use it to take typed notes. Text also crashes frequently and has glitches
  • Great handwriting recognition and handy backup/recover experience

    By leon_yyyyy
    I’ve always loved GoodNotes and am using it to do the lecture notes revision and stuff. The handwriting recognition is so fantastic that even handwriting in pictures can be recognised! I have recently experienced backup and recover. For GoodNotes it is smooth and convenient. What’s most important is that folders are saved as well as the notes. Compared to it, Notability is so much worse in this, I literally took a whole day to put all my notes back to their original folders, otherwise I will be dealing with 200+ notes in the untiled folder, which is a total mess. BUT!!!!! DEVELOPERS PLEASE SEE THIS!!! The only thing I would like to suggest for GoodNotes is to improve a bit on its pages moving experience. It is always hard to adjust the position of multiple pages at the same time, although you can select them at the same time, dragging to move pages around doesn’t seem to work.
  • Please add more fonts!

    By Despicable hero
    This app is just great! It has so many features and uses, that I don’t even know where to begin! I use it to make notes, write down recipes or just write out some thoughts. The text conversion is easy enough, though a bit involved, the only thing I wish we could do is add my own, unique fonts to give my converted text a bit more personality and style.
  • Seriously I was missing this all my life

    By gabbush
    So easy, so convenient. Any document I want can just easily be imported into GoodNotes. My only wish is that there’s an option where I can extend a page or something to add notes/etc to that specific page but other than that 10/10!!!
