Good to use but can have more optionsI really enjoy using this app as it is easy to use and pretty much replaces my notebook. I feel like it would be good to have sticky notes in the app as well to provide more space and expand the topic.

Superb app! I can only recommend it!One of the most creative productivity apps I have ever used on an iPad. GoodNotes has many sides and makes it extremely easy to mock up design ideas or annotated mood boards. From the designers perspective you have to rely on only the essentials -with regards brushes or image manipulation features etc.- but I consider this a benefit rather than a barrier, especially if you don’t wish to get lost in the details. Organising files and (!): searching handwritten text are also great and sometimes extremely useful features! I have just started to use the flash cards function too as I’m trying to improve my ability of speaking. I use GoodNotes on a daily basis and it is truly a great app!.Score: 5/5

Really useful, some features and bugs bring it down thoughA great app, so useful for notemaking. I would like for the text tool on the macbook to be more flexible however, as I find typing to make the notes is much faster than the pen tool (without a pen tablet). For example, being able to type the font instead of using the slider which can be quite cumbersome. Clicking on text to edit it is also quite obnoxious as I find having to type something in the middle usually means I have to actually delete the text all the way back. If there was also a way to choose the ordering of text/images like you can in microsoft word (i.e. send to back), that could also help the app be more flexible and easy to use. Some bugs that I have found include: when inserting an image I cannot undo anything I do after this. similarly when inserting a new custom template page I get the same issue. These bugs are not that bad however, as you can simply restart the app and load back your work (the autosave feature is great)..Score: 4/5

Versions history would be nice!Been using it for note taking quite a while now for my uni but sometimes accidents happen!! Say accidentally changed the template after notes were written and the notes are not automatically adjusted to the size of paper so they got chopped off. Sometimes accidentally deleted something and that’s it, gone for good. Therefore, it would be nice to have versions history where you can go back and restore :).Score: 5/5

Goodnotes - name say's it allI use Goodnotes mainly on my ipad with an apple pencil 2. i have tried several apps before this and this is my favourite. another well known app had an issue a few years back when it lost content for some users on a buggy synch - i was one of them. no such problem with this. easy to use, free hand,multiple colours, highlighting, shape drawing, inserting pictures oh and text boxes too. recommended to those other note takers among us who also need the formalty of folders, and so saving in structured way, and the search facility is a good too..Score: 5/5

Missing functionalityAs a note taking app much of what it does is really great, but a few things really let it down. First, you can’t have a document shown as two pages over a horizontal view meaning such a big waste of viewing space for any standard portrait documents. Second, the keyboard text inputs aren’t great. I don’t expect word processor level, but not even to have a bullet list option is a pain. Finally, organisation of front page folders and docs is very limited. You can’t have your folders anything but alphabetical. You should be able to organise icons in any order..Score: 3/5

Amazing, minor nitpicksThis is my go-to app for note taking, it’s just such so convenient to have everything digitally and it has everything you’ll need. Minor nitpicks: - shape tool recognition needs some work, works fine until squares but it keeps changing eg hexagons to circles, frustrating for chemistry - be able to move selected items across different pages rather than having to copy/paste or cut.Score: 5/5

Good App but the failure to write smoothly ruins itThe app itself is good but recently every time I’ve been writing using my Apple Pencil the page freezes and doesn’t register my writing, this happens ALL THE TIME and it is incredibly frustrating to the point I don’t use the app anymore.

This app is amazing but I have a suggestion...I use GoodNotes almost everyday for work, revision, drawing, the list goes on. And there are so many features such as the one which moves along the page so you can write without moving the screen every 5 seconds. The amount of colours you can use is amazing, especially since I’m a bit of a freak when taking notes. However, it would be so much more efficient if you could rearrange the colours and group them so you can find specific ones more easily. Apart from that I highly recommend !!.Score: 5/5

Great way to go paperlessThis is a great way of having all my notes in one place.

Sometimes when I double tap my Apple Pencil to switch to the eraser it draws when I try to rub out if I make contact again quickly after it switches. It seems like it’s lagging as when I lift the pencil and put it back down it’ll start erasing. File system is also quite weak, can’t search all files by date, and makes really inefficient use of the space because you can only have icons or a single column list. Given that this app is designed mostly for iPads I’d have expected files to be able to display in columns like the finder as opposed to only icons or a list..Score: 3/5

Would be helpful to open up the source folder of the document I am using (this will add another level of navigating to the required folder without having to click back down the file-tree and then click back to the required folder) - Once you enter the file system there doesn’t seem to be an intuitive way to jump back to the documents you have open and working on.

THE BEST on the iPad and this mac version is a great companionIf you have an iPad you absolutely must use GoodNotes it is the best of all the note taking apps on iPad OS. Having the Mac version available and syncing with the iPad version is wonderful. I use the Mac version all the time to share notes, reorganize notes, paste things in, export things out, etc. But, every time I want to actually take notes, I find the mouse/trackpad/keyboard interface is not really ideal. This program was designed to be used on an iPad, especially with an Apple Pencil. So, you should definitely have this app on your Mac to compliment the version on the iPad and make your life wonderful.

Apple Pencil glitchThere’s 2 glitches that sometimes happens with the Apple Pencil. Sometimes if the app has been on for awhile every time I try to write it automatically goes into the straight line mode after I finish a pen strike making my writing blocking and sometimes unreadable, but this can be stopped by restarting the app every time it happens. Second, sometimes the pen “jumps around” when I try to write and adds a bunch of dots or long lines all over the page.

Promising but Needs ImprovementAs a student who used Notability for many years I tried this app. The iCloud syncing is great, but some of the features are a bit disappointing. There are a lot of features that have been recommended by users on online forums that need to be put in place. For instance, you can only quickly access 3 highlighter colors on the toolbar. Having to switch between colors in the pop up box is INFURIATING for any student that color codes their notes. It’s also very difficult to retain writing/drawing on an inserted image if you want to move or resize images because there is no way to modify the layering..Score: 2/5

Highlighter malfunctionThis app is great, but the one thing I hate about it is... for some reason when i want to color in a letter with the highlighter setting the highlighter will turn into a box. I will be coloring in my bubbled letter and as i am almost done filling it in so it looks nice... the highlighter decides to form a box rather than just stay filled into the letter. Hope this makes sense (probably doesn't). That is my only complaint, other wise this app is pretty good..Score: 4/5

Also when resizing, I wish there was an option like in notability where I’m able to choose a size that I’ve already pre-chosen, like and actual number size. That way all my writing is consistent in thickness even after I enlarge or shrink it. 2- the zoom in feature: Sometimes there is sill space on the page and when I press enter it advanced to the next page and I have to move it back up. That’s annoying 😕 3- shape tool: Also the straight lines don’t always attach to each other as well as in notability.

So much potential but there’s a terrible flawI bought this app after buying a new iPad and pencil. I use this app for taking notes on PowerPoints and writing general notes on the pages. The importing pictures, exporting, sharing, scanning, all that is great. However, when I take notes, or writing anything in general. The app does this weird thing like it’s trying to correct or smooth my writing except it glitches and messes it all up! I thought it was my Apple Pencil but when I use Apple notes my terrible handwriting shows up fast, accurate and without any glitches. The only way for me to take notes is by writing really slow and big or hitting the undo button every other letter. It especially has difficulties with separating letters and and the letters, ‘O’, ‘C’, ‘K’, ‘Q’, ‘I’, ‘U’. So if you are planning on writing any of those letters or would like to write more than 5 letters a minute I would either save your money and use Apple notes or look at the other apps..Score: 2/5

So close…I’ve been a long time user of Goodnotes, but there has been one thing that’s bothered me since day 1: the pens and weird pressure/tilt sensitivity. I am constantly flip flopping between Apple Notes and Goodnotes because I love Goodnotes format, but LOVE the way the pens work in Notes. I’m not sure if its due to the fact that Goodnotes determines how to have the pen react by manually setting the angle and direction you typically write in, but it makes the pens stiff and my handwriting very inconsistent. It would also be great if they looked like real ink. For example, with Notes, if you highlight something, you can see the “bleed” and texture that is reminiscent of real ink on paper. My needs for a 5 star review are simply updates for more accurate handwriting. That means updating the pressure and tilt to work no matter what angle you have the tablet at..Score: 4/5

Convenient and is used everydayUpdated review and rating 3/5: Goodnotes app is bloated to 27 gb despite having deleted most of my previous years documents, trash, and disconnected my backup. Backup storage only took up 5gb at most on iCloud. I see this issue brought up by others online who have contacted Goodnotes and not received any reply. The issue is that my ipad no longer lasts a whole day because of the energy used by Goodnotes. Review: I bought this app to use on my newly bought Ipad 2018 since the combination of Apple Files, Microsoft OneNote, and another pdf annotating app just wasn’t cutting it. This app provided everything I needed in one app, and other functions I never thought I needed. I can separate large pdf files into smaller ones easily which is more convenient then bookmarking multiple the pages i need to go to, or endlessly scrolling through pages to find the chapter I need like I always had on Files. The Onenote app provides an expanding canvas to write notes and draw diagrams on but I realised that I missed easier organisation on a page and so Goodnotes was a better alternative. The only major drawbacks I can think of is that there is no option for split view within the app which would be easier then using two apps separately. Also, you have to manually back up your files which I do to Google Drive - this takes a long amount of time and is a little annoying. I can’t backup to iCloud because after years of using apple products, I’ve filled up the space with other important files. Other things: navigation would be much easier if we could organise by file types (folders in one section, notebooks afterwards, etc). Also, for some reason, my auto-capitalisation doesn’t work when naming notebooks and folders. Just a slight hindrance..Score: 3/5

One of the greatest App I used so far! Well worth!Very User friendly and this helped me to go 95% paperless. I thoroughly enjoy using GoodNotes app. If you using a paper like screen protector in your iPad, it nearly feels like you are writing on paper. Few things I would like to see in the future.. (these are just ideas I have when using the app) 1. The pen writing to be more fine tuned like apple note pen writing. My writing is bit different when writing on the apple note app (lot closer to my pen on paper writing) and good note app. So if you can make it closer to that it would be really great!! 2. May be introduce some gesture controls in the future rather than selecting functions from the top menu going back and forth, having 3 finger swipe to pop up a menu (or something like that, just an idea) 3. Have more colour options to save as favourite on the top bar than only 3. Even though you can go and select a new colour from the colour swatches, it will change the saved colours from the top 3 bar and sometimes you need more than 3 colours ready to select and it’s really annoying to go back and forth to select and re select the colours.. not to say very time consuming. 4. Ability to select several pages and duplicate within a book. I don’t know this is available even now, but I couldn’t find a way to do rather than duplicating one by one and repositioning each page. 5. Ability to Select several pages and make it in to a new document. Even though it allowed me to select several pages and export it as goodnotes files, when I select the option to open on the goodnotes, nothing happens and I can’t find those selected pages alone anywhere in the app. These are just few things I came across that I thought would have been nice to have.
