  • Many Issues

    By Fonfon99054
    1) The application takes forever to load my notes and is very very laggy when doing so too 2) When using the new iPad Pro, I noticed that there were times when I start writing and then random dots and lines would appear out of nowhere. It is really annoying and closing the app (and even restarting the iPad) does not resolve the issue 3) I’ve been using GoodNotes for a while and these issues have come up recently with the new updates (it could also be the fact that GoodNotes is not fully “optimized” with the new iPad/ Apple Pencil 2). 4) Please fix soon! Thanks!
  • Best app for note taking

    Good for work & school
  • App Crashes upon attempting to open a document

    By Johnnydean95
    I’ve used GoodNotes for over a year for school. But last week, the app will inexplicably crash every single time that a document is opened. I have notes I need for an exam on Friday that I can no longer access. I’ve tried deleting and re downloading the app to no avail. So irritating.
  • Paper-free is finally within reach!

    I very rarely write reviews, but I’m so very happy with this app so far that I feel I need to contribute my voice. I’m a pen-and-paper guy at work and I go to a lot of meetings in my role. I love the feel of pen to paper, regularly buying specific pens and specific paper from specialty stores because I know what I like. Still, I’ve wanted the convenience of taking all of my notes with me, and having access to things that I wrote months or years ago. After using this app, coupled with the new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, I finally feel that I can break free from my traditional note taking tools! The trio combine for the most authentic writing experience I’ve ever had with a device. That’s not to mention the benefits of being able to categorize and move my notes, editing & moving text on the page, adding highlights and different pen colors, etc... It’s a great experience and I can’t recommend this app highly enough. Great job, development team!
  • Fantastic

    I’ve been using this app for years now and still love it. So useful both in the office and on the job sites. I’ve even converted a few coworkers to the program.
  • Love it

    By Unlunarized
    I use this app for all my note taking and for bullet journaling. The only thing I wish this app had was more pen options other than fountain and ballpoint for calligraphy.
  • Well behind notability

    Will there ever be an update?
  • Really good

    By Pluplu111
    Cannot switch color easily like OneNote by adding one more pen . Everything else is better than OneNote
  • Good app but could improve

    By aijiaa
    There’s definitely features missing like the ability to rotate and change thickness of texts. Also would be nice if we could zoom out from beyond the size of the paper like in Procreate.
