  • Great App but…

    By First time user 1106
    I love using Goodnotes however I will say that switching from Notability has made me notice what i miss… a floating tool bar. I liked the ability to save my favorite tools and colors and have that close at hand. Goodnotes only allows for three colors at a time and is limited to the top or bottom of the screen. Also, with the lasso tool, I can’t move items from page to page but rather have to copy and paste.. very annoying and time consuming. It would also be nice to have a side bar come up where you can search and open other notes from within the app like notability.. However the cost has made the biggest difference. Thank you for a great app, won’t be going back to notability for a while
  • Lacking basic features

    By Kres7
    Honestly for a note taking / document editing app that I’m paying for, this lacks a lot of basic features. Firstly I’m unable to play audio from PowerPoints or view comments which is a huge inconvenience , secondly it’s hard to click links which should be simple and also it’s difficult to share notes across devices since you depend on iCloud storage which is in itself a separate fee.
  • It is a useless app, a waste of money

    By Sikar8
    It's hard to write with a man's finger, and the speak to text is totally a waste. This is a useless waste of money I regret ever getting it.
  • Great for note-taking, not for file storage

    By M.e.g.9753
    I love taking notes in Goodnotes with my apple pencil, but my complaints would be that there is not a quick way to turn on/off the pencil to click embedded links, etc. Also, I have had issues importing word documents. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
  • Bookmarks icon still not fixed

    By c4aa
    The last update removed the visible bookmark icon which was the only way to easily navigate long documents. Customer support was dismissive of my concerns, and suggested voting on an idea to restore this basic functionality. Since it will take forever to get enough votes to make it back to being a priority, this app has greatly diminished usefulness.
  • Needs improvement

    By Qpo0
    Have been using goodnotes for 3 year but i still get annoyed by not being able to take notes on full screen (handwritten) please fix that and you will be way ahead of your competitors Please add full screen editing and typing.
  • One thing left to become perfect

    By Sanna Bakr

    enjoy all the options it has and choices of text boxes and color, if download the new version you may also notice that you are able to record.
  • Love this app!

    By Happy_penutbutter_
    This is one of my favorite apps on my iPad. I use it for taking notes in school as I can implement both typing and writing for when whichever is needed for classes. One thing I would really like would for the laser pen to be implemented as an actual pen. I like how it looks different to the regular pens and would love to be able to use it as a highlighter in a sense so I can highlight certain words with a glow pen. I just really like how the laser pen writes as well, just wish it would stay on the page.
