  • Lag on 2018 iPad - Lasso Tool is Frustrating to Use!

    By HypnoDino
    I see the advertisement on GoodNotes and think, “I want my notes to look like that!” When I finally manage to get my notes to look super cute, with photos and everything, everything I move with the lasso tool lags and takes forever to reposition itself! I edit 4K video on LumaFusion so I know it’s not the amount or ram or something, so I think the app is not fully optimized to work like advertised. Please GoodNotes crew, can you help me figure out what is causing lag when I use the lasso tool?
  • Excellent

    I’ve had no issues with this app. It lets me import documents up to 300+ pages.

  • Great app

    By briofiamma
    I’m definitely still a beginner with these types of apps, but I love GoodNotes so far. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to edit PDFs, or to try digital planning/journaling.
  • Great app!

    By Tyannaqt
    This is a must have for music majors and anyone who can’t get into typing their notes in class. There’s manuscript paper (staff paper) and many other types for your note taking needs. Also, I love to write my notes on paper but don’t like varying notebooks around and this app gives me the best of both worlds!
  • Great App

    Could use some minor ui and tool updates.
  • Very good but short of …

    By Kupferberg
    It’s very cumbersome in some ways. But workable. Missing access to pdf files and access to the files on the drive it is installed on.

  • Data usage high

    By Lawyerup1234
    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.
  • ALMOST Perfect!

    By Nora098
    This was the first digital writing app that I purchased, the other being Notability, and I absolutely love it!!!! I love how customizable the paper, notebook covers, pen/highlighter colors , and pen sizes are. HOWEVER, my only wish is that it would incorporate an audio recording tool such as Notability! I’m always on the lookout for this because it seems like years since it was mentioned to be in the works on the GoodNotes website. For that reason alone, I find myself having to resort to Notability for its audio capabilities, which really annoys me because I really prefer GoodNotes when it comes to formatting and writing. Even though I end up using Notability on the daily for school, I do find myself returning to GoodNotes to write on documents, PDFs, textbooks, and other readings. Its perfect for annotating texts! Overall, this is an amazing app! The functions are very customizable and can be easily fitted to the user! The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because it has failed to develop the audio function, which thousands of similar users like myself have upvoted on its Request Feature page on the GoodNotes website.
