App Reviews

  • Awesome App!!!

    By blueline mom
    I love this app a lot!! There’s only a couple of things I’d like to see updated. In the “text”, I’d like to see options to adjust the space (line spacing). You already have it pt space for boards and padding, not for text yet. Also, the ability to add different fonts is a game changer!! Other than that, it’s been really useful and fun!

  • Updated Review

    By Lawyerup1234
    One of my first reviews stated the following: I was using Auto Backup, but my notebooks get updated every time I make a change. This results in VERY high data usage for my large notebooks (one is now 525 MB). (I keep my iPad connected to my iPhone’s hotspot.) Maybe they could figure out how to amend the backup function instead of replacing the whole thing each time? For now, I have to do a manual backup when I get to (non-cellular hotspot) WiFi, because my iPad doesn’t know the difference between using my cell phone’s hotspot and (landline) WiFi. ** Thank you, GoodNotes, for confirming that all backups require a full upload of all contents of the changed notebooks. Thanks also for confirming that no provision is made to make the backup function more data/time efficient. 2018.11.8 I update this review today to describe an issue where GoodNotes for iPhone appears to download updates on each launch of the app for notebooks that have not been changed since July, August and October 2018. That is, every time I open the app, the app will download several notebooks that have not changed since the last time a sync occurred. Fortunately, this review allows me to state that this anomaly is terribly inconvenient in that notebooks remain unavailable for editing until the update/sync is complete. This can take several minutes, as I have many notebooks of about 100 mb apiece. Even now, I switch back to the app from writing this review, and notebooks that completed syncing a few moments ago begin to sync again, with no changes to the notebook between syncs. In addition, I notice that my battery had dwindled to 35% from 71% in about 30 minutes. Now that I have taken the time to articulate a description of this additional issue, I anticipate a hearty discussion will be had to identify a patch. Blessings to you this Thanksgiving season! 2018.11.12 iPhone app fails to print all annotations on a single-page print job. The missing annotation includes three paragraphs of typewritten text in a text box in addition to a one-sentence typewritten box of text. 2018.11.20 iPhone app continues to download today notebooks that synced prior to October 31, 2018. These notebooks have not changed since the last sync; however, the glitch with the app triggers a re-sync with a few (apparently random) notebooks. This adds to the unnecessary data usage noted in the narrative of 11/8/18, above.
  • Crashing

    By coranangel
    I have tried to reach out to get a resolution with no luck. App crashes very shortly after use. This is becoming very frustrating as I haven’t been able to use what I’ve paid for.

    i love it
  • Don’t use if you want to keep all the work u do

    By kels.grind.
    Recently lost a notebook containing an entire semester of pharmaceutical biochemistry (that was backed up from the cloud and gone there too!!). It was over 1000 pages of notes / lecture slides and have reached out for help multiple times and have gotten NO response, but hey at least they’re keeping their social media up to date! So upset and even more disheartened from the absence of help. Really don’t want to switch apps but I’m gonna have to because I can’t be losing whole semesters of work especially right before finals.
  • Will not open

    By gr8tgoose
    App was great before. Now every time I try to open the app it crashes. I have no access to my previous work notes (and obviously cannot create new ones). App is updated on my end. Please fix as this is a critical issue!
  • Excellent Replacement for hand-written journaling

    By jonschneider
    This app is excellent for hand written journaling. What I really wanted was a straight transfer of journaling in paper notebooks to an iPad, and with the latest Apple Pencil this is an excellent substitute. In addition to handwriting I love the fact that I can easily import PDFs into journals. -1 star for no Files support. I wouldn’t expect WebDAV support from a mass-market application but importing and exporting via the Files app should be supported by my document-based application.
  • Would be better is allowed two note view simultaneously.

    By Harry CHC
    It would be even better is I can view and edit multiple note at the same time. Also it would be great if there is a ruler function like the one in apple note. Other wise, great app!
  • Pretty good happy I went with it.

    By Armin Saber
    Overall a good app. I personally don’t like the organization style of notebooks. Wish you could auto straighten highlights while writing without having to constantly toggle the shape feature
