  • Five 5 stars for fixing scrolling lag!!!
    by perfectNotes on July 6, 2022 at 10:23 am

    Scrolling lag has been bothering me for a long period. Huge thanks for u guys fixing it! You guys are so beautiful !

  • i like it but i dont
    by baibidezz on July 6, 2022 at 3:35 am

    i like the app its useful for studying with everything provided within the app but, it is constantly freezes and shuts down. if it happened once in awhile i wont mind so much. i get a good 30 minutes before it starts closing saying there is a problem. so now i will have to pay for another app that not do this. i guess a pro is that is saves your progress before it automatically shuts down.

  • Desktop version: CANNOT type sometimes!!
    by KassNg on July 6, 2022 at 2:55 am

    When I try to type in the textbox, it wouldn't let me. Sometimes it'd jump to eraser and pictures etc just CANNOT TYPE!!!

  • لا شيء
    by الدكتوره تبارك on July 6, 2022 at 2:26 am

    البرنامج جيد جداً لكنه لا يعمل الا اذا دفعت النقود وانا ليس لدي نقود ف اتمنى ان تحُل هذه المشكله بأسرع وقت

  • Missing Download/Import
    by Ms Monia on July 6, 2022 at 2:01 am

    I don’t understand how I have 3 free notebook spots but can’t download/import a file. I paid for the download now I don’t have the download/import because it keep saying delete the trash. Help me understand the process, or help me find my missing download/import.

  • Don’t try scribble function
    by gab2611 on July 6, 2022 at 1:22 am

    The app is great in terms of accessibility and how convenient importing and exporting documents but the scribble function is ridiculously poor which I hate. It’s really frustrating when I try it just doesn’t understand what I’m writing, messes up the format of it, and what I like most about digital notes is being able to convert my ugly handwriting to cleaner text so that really deters me from using GoodNotes as my #1.

  • Not good
    by unicornjazz0512 on July 5, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    I started using this app and it was ok until I accidentally deleted it and now i cant make a note and draw or type its so annoying and horrible

  • It’s good!
    by Metal Moments on July 5, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Once you understand the navigation and shortcuts you will assemble notes in a jiffy.

  • Edit Google Docs
    by Helmlinger97 on July 5, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    I wish we could edit Google docs and sheets. If that feature were added I would rate this app 5 stars for sure. I would also like an easier way to do text boxes as well.

  • ipad experience is better than desktop
    by Kept2 on July 5, 2022 at 5:30 pm

    i would rather use the ipad version than the desktop and i rate that version much higher but i like that both the ipad and desktop are synced.

  • Great Notes!
    by gregramer on July 5, 2022 at 3:50 pm

    I have used many other note taking apps and Good Notes is my go-to app for note taking and marking up the many PDF's that I interact with. I am able to sketch ideas out for my photography projects as well as send my thoughts to others. I am very thankful that Good Notes exists.

  • PLEASE REMOVE the “Add a new page?” pop-up
    by MarisaE123 on July 5, 2022 at 1:11 pm

    Longtime user here—love this app and stand by it! Would rate 5 out of 5 stars… HOWEVER, there seems to be a new update that makes an annoying pop-up appear whenever I pull to add a page. I take notes hurriedly during class or after class in notebooks that can get to hundreds of pages long. Especially for the already anxiety-inducing notetaking during class—why would I ever want to have to confirm the addition of a page when I’m in the middle of trying to copy down a professor’s rapid-fire speech? This new feature is extremely annoying and decreases the app’s usability. It makes my experience unpleasant to the level of knocking my rating down by two stars. PLEASE remove the feature, or at least make it an option that I can change in settings. Thank you.

  • Changing Template
    by Vivi_Smiling on July 5, 2022 at 7:23 am

    It would be helpful if there's an option to change the template of all pages at once along with individual pages.

  • needs improvement
    by Kailley1104 on July 5, 2022 at 3:59 am

    really frustrating that so many of us have been asking for the basic feature of “send to front”/“send to back” for over three years now and still no update on this. we need this functionality and for this to be a paid app, you really need to listen to the customer.

  • This app made me a Writer
    by Sandbaggger on July 4, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    As a coach and an athlete, I have to maintain a Performance Journal – a special form of diary designed around documenting your successes, solutions, and equipment maintenance logs. I've been using physical notepads for this at first, but always had issues with re-structuring or amending existing knowledge. I’ve moved to Ulysses and an iPad Pro and never looked back. Moving things around was not a problem anymore. If I needed to add more ideas to the same page – I could simply change the template, and suddenly, I have more real estate. It worked for a while, but then I realized I started documenting more for others, rather than myself, which resulted in much more plain text. I could still fit it using Zoom function and whatnot, but it was easier to just typing things out. I’m working on my first book now, using Ulysses – another cool app I can highly recommend. I'm still using Good Notes for quick discoveries and also illustrations and diagrams. Love it! Thank you so much for building this.

  • Good App. Needs More Customizing Options
    by Vi_ da on July 4, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    I really enjoy this app and use it for journaling, note taking for work and church, budgeting, studying, etc. It has replaced all the notebooks today I start and then end up misplacing! My big complaint is the lack of Customizing options available. Something as simple as being able to change folder colors is not an option. With all the uses I am getting out of the app, I want more ways to organize and color code things.

  • Changed to a new iPad, lost all my documents
    by Speakerboxxsupernerd on July 4, 2022 at 7:51 am

    Beware of app. I lost all of my pdf that were supposedly uploaded to the cloud. All of the documents appear blank. There go years of documents and reviews.

  • Please add ability to utilize the full width of the toolbar
    by ben salley on July 4, 2022 at 4:03 am

    Also the ability to “lock” a page into place would be quite useful.

  • Mejoras que deben hacer
    by [email protected] on July 3, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    La aplicación es excelente, pero deberían hacer más páginas y portadas de diferentes estilos. También deberían añadir tarjetas que se puedan hacer de manera de resumen y añadir páginas que tenga estilo de mapas conceptuales, añadir páginas con estilo de contabilidad. Por último, deberían añadir agendas personalizadas o páginas de agendas con diferentes estilos. Estas mejorar ayudaría a que la aplicación sea más profesional que otras aplicaciones.

  • Great app but…
    by Ceejames on July 3, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Point deducted for still not having ability to create page links/hyperlinks in app. ZoomNotes has had this for long time and Collanote a new app made by a collage student has it. Kind of embarrassing. But as long time loyal GN user still waiting for in app page links. Nice we can import pdfs with links and use them but the wait for getting the ability to create in GN has been way to long. The leading notes app but not the leading features.

  • A must have.
    by sadiedarko on July 3, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    I use this app for everything. School, journals, therapy notes, my planner, and I keep track of my medicine on here. Plus much more. 10/10 recommend.

  • App Randomly Stopped Working
    by Emm.L3333 on July 3, 2022 at 5:22 pm

    Literally have used this for almost a year. The app started to not load properly so I had to keep resetting my iPad. Updated the app, would still randomly not load the app. Deleted the app, and now all my iCloud data just doesn’t exist anymore. Not really sure what’s going on as of June 2022. If this could get fixed that would be great seeing as when the app works, it’s wonderful. Just lost a lot of written information that I’m not even sure I can get back now.

  • Amazing!
    by Abracadabra5 on July 3, 2022 at 3:59 pm

    Love this app.

  • very good .
    by Jixiaodi on July 3, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    make my life and work so happ .and i will not use paper any more. thank this app,soooooooo gooooood!

  • One Small Complaint
    by Neighborhood wackadoo on July 3, 2022 at 12:55 am

    I have been trying to decide on a note-taking app and I am heavily leaning towards this one! I really like how organized it is and really enjoy all of the features offered. I am looking to purchase the full version but one tiny thing is holding me back. I wish I could customize the folders like I can with the notebooks! Aesthetics are really important to me and the blue folders really just bother me! Please consider adding this feature. Thank you!

  • The Best. Period.
    by Kevinbrowns on July 2, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    So many awesome features, I will use this for the rest of my life. Note taking, planning, sorting etc. It has it all. Color coding is perfect. 10/10 recommend.

  • Impressive
    by sorensown on July 2, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    After using Notes for all of my notetaking on my iPad, I was relucant to try something new. GoodNotes continues to exceed my expectations. While some may not like the text box function, the freeform writing/drawing is perfect. I love the customization, folders, and overall design of the app. Definitely a must for iPad Pro users!

  • Flashcards are the best
    by LidanRM on July 2, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    I use this app daily for work and continued education. I discovered the Flashcards feature a few weeks ago and it’s the best out there.

  • Great App for a teacher!
    by jloush on July 1, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    This has been so helpful during the school year, attending meetings, and PDs. Uses: - Keeping journals separate for different instances - Keep notes cleaner by being able to switch around pages & by adding pages to outline - Photographing forms/paperwork and not having to keep them - Photograph projects and make notes beside them to remember for future - I've also used it to make a quick scrapbook of trips while on the plane or in the car!

  • Crash when searching for words
    by Mikepurj on July 1, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    goodnotes crashes constantly when I try to search for a word in one of my notes. Please solve this problem. Thank you.

  • Awesome
    by Ehhhhhhhhhhdkdofnwbjs on July 1, 2022 at 7:43 pm


  • Great Note Taking App!
    by Orion Cadet on July 1, 2022 at 3:37 pm

    It well organized and easy to use. Nice the way it moves across all of my devices.

  • great app for note taking as a graduate student
    by Khadija Trotter on July 1, 2022 at 1:43 pm

    I am 95% paperless in graduate school thanks to good notes. I can download my powerpoint presentations and any word docs (as a pdf for a better format) onto good notes. I also downloaded a planner template onto this app so I don't have to buy a physcial planner ever again. Lots of helpful tutorials online on "how to's". only feature I wish it had is being able to record a lecture while taking notes. That's the only advantage notability has over good notes in my opinion.

  • make a windows version for laptops please
    by ijsxina on July 1, 2022 at 9:11 am

    I love goodnotes but, i hate the fact that you guys don’t offer it for windows only mac

  • Good to have 2-way sync
    by Ghitavba on July 1, 2022 at 4:34 am

    I was wondering if it were possible to have 2-way sync, which means that if I were to have a new file in my Google drive, that file would be automatically visible to me in GoodNotes without my having to import it and then annotating it as a local copy? Otherwise this is a fantastic note taking app that I have used for my college semesters!

  • crashes too often
    by ballhopper on July 1, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I would love and support this app all of the live long day if it didnt crash so often. Happens on both computer and iPad so I would assume iPhone as well. Even if it crashes while I'm in the middle of writing something (at least once a day/use, usually 2-4 times in a single use period) it'll save everything you wrote/edited/etc. so there's at least that. Not worth it if you can't stand getting knocked out of a flow

  • Laggy, poor UX, doesn't sync with iPad app well.
    by AnotherJosher on June 30, 2022 at 4:08 pm

    The app is great. But the appstore equivalent is a horrible counter part. If you were thinking of deciding between OneNote, GoodNotes, or Notabiliry, the OneNote would be able to work better between computer and tablet. Wouldn't recommend this. I'd say try it out for a day, if not then file a complaint/refund from Apple Store to see what we experience.

  • Wonderfull tool!
    by Carlemagne93 on June 30, 2022 at 12:04 pm

    Firstly, thank you for resisting the temptation to change to subscription pricing! This is the perfect note app for students, professionals, or anyone who just likes to take notes! DOWNLOAD THIS APP

  • Speaker
    by شكرا جدا 7STARS on June 30, 2022 at 11:19 am

    The speaker doesn’t work.

  • Needs some features to be added
    by +MNR+ on June 30, 2022 at 4:01 am

    Although this is a good and useful app but it still needs some features which should be added to it. 1. Voice recorder synced with written notes. 2. The ability to Insert tables. 3. Math formula recognition (converting handwritten notes into formulas). 4. Floating notes which allows you to move a piece of paper freely on the screen and take notes. 5. An option to move text properties above the keyboard 6. Easier undo e.g. a shortcut or putting the button below the screen (just the undo button). 7. Full screen mode 8. Inserting shapes 9. Adding signature to PDF files. 10. OCR 11. Creating Word,Excel & PowerPoint files. 12. Export to Word,Excel & PowerPoint files format. 13. Windows application. 14. Syncing with other cloud services like Google drive. 15. Built-in calculator 16. Drawing graph ability 17. Change folder color and style for better categorization. 18. Rearrange folder order freely. 19. Add fonts. 20. Fit to width and height option for page view. 21. Needs buttons for navigating between pages. 22. Merging files 23. Needs duplicate option when selecting files

  • BUGS!
    by Pro_dinko on June 29, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    THe flashcard feature is awesome, but if it worked properly. Sometimes it would only cycle a few cards even if you reset learning process... Also there is no special mode to do 10 out of the set master before moving on the next 10 flashcards... So if you have 100 flashcards then you must do all 100 before they cycle... Most likely you would forget by the time you are on 100...

    by Njusalisa on June 29, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    I love this note taking app. So many colors and fonts to choose from. Love the templates and have found it easy to sync all my notes for college easily. The only thing that keeps bugging me is the lack of color holders when drawing/writing. GoodNotes only allows you to use 3 colors at a time, making it annoying if you are using 4+ colors in your notes. I hope goodnotes takes this into account and updates this feature. Otherwise, GREAT APP.

  • Turns my laptop into a jet from TopGun
    by Kermitx2 on June 29, 2022 at 4:06 pm

    I love the GoodNotes app on my phone and iPad, but the MacOS app has issues with CPU usage. Everytime I boot up GoodNotes, my mac heats up and the fan becomes so loud that I have to shut down the app. This happens even when I am not running any other apps in the background. Goodnotes on Mac is essential to my study workflow so it is dissapointing that I can't use it as intended.

  • Love it!
    by GodlyChild77 on June 29, 2022 at 2:08 am

    This is a fantastic app!🤩 Great for all kinds of needs but I mostly use it to do all my in-depth Bible studies which have brought me so much closer to my Father. The only thing I would like to see chnaged, is the ability to customize the text colors just like we can with the pen and highlighters. This is the only reason I am giving it four stars instead of five. Just makes it difficult to keep saving codes when wanting to match text with highlights and writing. 😉

  • Reason why I use my iPAD
    by Jewel623 on June 28, 2022 at 12:18 pm

    Thank you Goodnotes. You are the reason why I brought iPAD and still I use iPAD , otherwise, I would have been think otherwise. iPAD + Goodnotes have impacted my life with huge power . One of the reason i love the Goodnotes team as they charge you once only. I abhor “subscription” model.

  • Need to work on text typing and header movement
    by wickynic on June 28, 2022 at 4:05 am

    Love the note taking ability, but text typing seemed buggy (sometimes its bound moves with typing, other times it get stuck), and some other times the typed texts disappear. Also noticed that its header does not move along with mac's own header when use the app full screen. mac's header blocks changing tools.

  • Bridges the gap between paper and the digital frontier
    by Chadworth1 on June 28, 2022 at 1:13 am

    For a long time, I’ve always wanted to take notes on my iPad, however I like my hand notes still, but I also like the idea of using digital notes. This app is a hybrid, I can take hand written notes on physical paper, and upload them into the app. I can then add clipart, or make revisions to said note if I like, then add a page of digital notes in between the handwritten notes. As a learning musician, it’s great because I feel like I learn better with a physical notebook, but I can upload them into this app as a back up, and also having them on the fly. I used The app for about 20 or 30 minutes, and bought it without question. Refreshing to see an app with such functionality, and not charge a monthly fee.

  • Pencils and more pen types and handwriting assist
    by parkourmasta on June 27, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Good but needs better hand writing recognition/assist to make notes look cleaner. Also really needs some pencils and more pen types.

  • So useful!!
    by Ayala burstein on June 27, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    This app is amazing if you need to do some notes like for a school project or for scheduling and I really need an app like this i have many notes to write. It has many details like a brush to write and their is an image section I recommend an apple pen for this app there is so many options and fonts to write with now there is just one tiny problem, sometimes when you try to write its very buggy and laggy and sorta glitches but other then that it’s a really good app I really recommend it if you need to make notes a lot. ☺️😊😁

  • Lacking a few basic features
    by ToyoToyaTori on June 27, 2022 at 4:14 pm

    I have great fondness for GoodNotes as it has helped me throughout my student life. I do feel that a basic writing feature like adding bullets should have long been incorporated into GoodNotes. I have to use apps to make neat lists and for planning for this reason. Another basic functionality feature would be the ability to lock a picture or text in its position so that it does not shift around due to a careless hand movement. Selecting text or image for lasso doesn’t solve this problem because these are broad categories and we can’t really single out a particular item. I also feel that the number of pen or brush types can be expanded but that is not crucial to my use of GoodNotes.
