  • Greatness With CAVEAT

    By CitizenA
    I’ve been an avid user of the app since it was introduced. In fact - it was reading books and this app that made me buy my 12.9/iPad Pro. (But, I digress.) The app has saved me and made me lots of business opportunities. CAVEATS - I now use both GoodNotes 4 and 5. Four on the iPad and the iPhone - but exclusively 4 on the iPhone since I have not updated my iPhone to iOS 12, thus GoodNotes 5 is not yet available to me. The buggy software in iOS 12 will hopefully be resolved with 12.1.5 or eventually 13 after Dev conference? Second caveat is the iOS iCloud refreshes that stall the access to documents I’ve saved to my device - but don’t have immediate use of. In GoodNotes 5, that problem is resolved. No waiting. It’s quick. Not so on 4. So, I wait patiently, close the app and try again until it’s resolved. Fixing these issues would move my opinion from a 4-star rating to a 5. The program is that good and that pivotal to the sketches, design and planning-work I use it for. Please and thank you.
  • Exactly what I have been looking for

    By Yakimastubbs
    This app is easy to use and very intuitive. I have been looking for an application like this for the last 10 years, I am happy to have finally found it. It has replaced the yellow pad for my client interviews and makes it very easy for me to share the information with my assistant. I can also do proposals on the run without logging a lot of excess paperwork with me.
  • No Mac App

    By KRP333
    Version 4 had a Mac app that added utility to GoodNotes. The Mac app is not compatible with GoodNotes 5. I would not have upgraded from 4 to 5 had I known this. The developer should have been transparent about this.
  • Love iPad app, waiting on MacBook app

    By Lei & J
    Started using GoodNotes 4 this week and absolutely love it. Would love to be able to add stuff to my notes when I’m using my MacBook.
  • Great, but missing a few things

    By studdddybuddy
    I really love this note taking app, it’s been essential to making going back to college again, a breeze. I wish it would have a feature to be able to construct a table or graphs inside of it. I wish that you were also able to record lectures along with the notes as well, as someone else deduced to. Overall, a wonderful app but could use a few improvements.
  • Really good note taking application

    By Hblessons
    Use this for work. I like that it features OCR and that I can search for entries that I have made. The Apple Pencil makes that feature even more effective as it presents a clearer handwriting experience. When using other pens and an older IPad, it was a little less effective. I like that I can copy and paste my notes in to other apps, for example an email. One thing I would like to see is the ability to insert a checkbox style list as can be done on my Galaxy note 8’s note feature. This would be helpful to have to-do lists that would be interactive and up to date as a result.
  • Be paperless!!

    By T_deka
    This review is not for the customer but fir the app developer who made it. First of all I love this app. It fantastic. THE ONLY THING I HATE AND DISTURBED is every time I open this app the freakin add comes up to get GoodNotes 5. I don’t wanna look that add any more and if I want then I will get it myself. Don’t keep pushing the users like that. That’s ANNOYING. Please do something, if not then I’m sorry. It will be a ZERO recommendation for all the users.
  • Refund

    By Crsn_310_
    I’ve purchased the bundle version and I’m waiting for it to download. Taking about an hour and it keeps saying it can’t download at this time.
  • Amazing. Love it

    By sabrinai8
    So. I bought this app because I wanted to to try digital planning. I am so glad I did it. I started off using it with just my Mac book and my iPhone then I bought the iPad 6 generation and the pencil. Love it. It was so worth it. I am in love with digital planning with this app. It makes it so easy.
  • Words are overlapping when opening ppt

    By 123xigua
    Good app to make notes, but words get overlapping when I imported ppt slides. Even the words in figures and charts are in a mess. And the slide number is missing on each page.
