Absolutely excellent

This app absolutely blows all other note and productivity apps out of the water. The interface is so self explanatory and user friendly. It works seamlessly with pdf notes typically given by education institutions these days. Using these notes you can annotate the notes in any way you want, insert your own typed or written pages and insert more images and pages seamlessly. It’s just so good I often have a little exclamation when I find a new feature which is just so intuitive and helpful. THIS APP makes the choice between another tablet like a remarkable 2 and an iPad an absolute no brainer, it works fantastically with the Apple Pencil and massively helps your handwriting look better especially when writing zoomed in where the resolution is held (if not improved) unlike many other apps. This app is also perfect with the multitask side car to host notes or Question sheets whilst writing in a notebook on the app. The files are automatically saved to an iCloud folder, my cloud service of choice, but I’m sure it would be equally easy to host on a different service. This way, whenever I want to access or upload content via my laptop I can do so in real-time. Honestly, if you are put off by the price, don’t be, it’s the best value purchase you will ever make, especially given a pack of coloured pens is almost the same price these days. 10/5 for me.

Incredible note taking app

I use this app everyday for school work i am still so impressed how it works so well with the iPad and apple pencil, I especially like it for subjects such as maths and chemistry. The usability of it immediately being on every device is so nice to have and how you can organise all your notes into folders and subfolders with notebooks. Ive been using this app for 4 months almost 5 hours a day and i still find undiscovered features like adding custom page templates through files. However the app could still add some features which would make it flawless. In order of importance to me: A fill tool to fill shapes with colour after you have drawn it; the ability to write full screen with no bar at the top of at least a minimised version; more options for the highlighter tool such as an outline for where it will highlight such as a black 50% opacity ring around the size of highlighter and the option to turn off highlighter layering so it doesn’t make the colour darker; a recent colours section; a protractor, compass and ruler tool for improved maths and shape drawing and the ability to change the colour of selected writing for example from black to red. Thanks for making such an incredible app.

I love this app but …

I love this app and have been using it for years. However, since Sunday I have experienced a lot of problems with it. My hobby is digital planning and I have got into that thanks to GoodNotes. However, on Sunday when I tried transferring some December and Christmas digital stickers my app started crashing when in split screen or overlapping. I have tried everything: updating my iPad, disabling auto backup, deleting pages from my digital planner (which was painful), making a new version of my digital sticker book (this version still crashed!) and finally gave up and organised my stickers in folders thinking that I would just use them instead of my sticker book. However when I tried the app continues to crash in Split View or overlap!!! I decided to give this app another chance and updated it immodestly as soon as I saw the latest update. However IT IS STILL CRASHING!!! I have tried EVERYTHING and am seriously at the point of giving up on digital planning due to the hours and tears wasted over the past several days trying to plan my week with constant crashes. PLEAASE FIX THIS so that I can continue to enjoy my hobby. I have spent a lot of money and time and really would not want it to go to waste!!! Once again PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE OR GIVE ME SOME ADVICE ON WHAT I CAN DO! I have tried EVERYTING on the GoodNotes website and am REALLY FED UP!!!!!!!’
