GoodNotes 5 app reviews

  • Awesome app for school notes 5/5

    By JMorcos
    Love GoodNotes! Super easy and stays out of the way to make school note-taking a breeze. A little bummed I paid for the app on Mac only for it to be pulled and replaced with the iOS universal purchase a few months later, but regardless of cost the app is worth it. One tiny request - could autocorrect be enabled for the text box in the "add page to outline" UIAlertView? I always spell stuff wrong in the outline!
  • Fantastic 5/5

  • Great so far 5/5

    By Ouvree
    User friendly and convenient. Wish handwritten notes can be converted to typed instantly. Kwame
  • Great for all things but typing outline notes or converting handwriting 4/5

    By laurenmae82
    The workflow for converting handwriting into text is very clumsy to use but luckily the sketching and handwriting components are so great that you learn to live without typed text.
  • I love this app!! 5/5

    By Grasshopper100
    I use it for my bible studies, journaling, brainstorming and especially for storing crochet patterns! I’ve also used it when I’ve taken online classes to store folders and assigned articles.

    Tis app is excellent only need a security password option!!!
  • AMAZING! Better than Noteability ~ 5/5

    By joannewong
    PAST NOTEABILITY USER SWITCHED TO GOODNOTES! SO MUCH BETTER! I started off pharmacy school (intensive note taking required!) using noteability because of its ability to use the app on the computer as well (additional $12), but then it became glitchy and did not sync. I was so annoying that I decided to just buy Goodnotes due to its new app for macbooks. I was totally impressed and am so glad I made the switch. Goodnotes aesthetic is just sooo much better; highlight is a nice vibrant color and the notebook function/folder function is so visibly neat and aesthetic. So far, there has not been any sync issues with goodnotes between my devices! Please keep this up! The only thing I would like to see is being able to drag text/image/writing from one page to the next page. I noticed that I need to actually press copy and go to the next page to press paste if I wanted to move something. Thank you for all the hard work goodnotes team! You are amazing, please keep it up!

  • Best Note Taking App for Students!! 5/5

    By Katis.Nicky
    I got this app after getting my first ipad for college to take notes and store digital text books. H's very user friendly, allows for a lot of customization, and is easy to download, store, and organize school documents. After a lot of Youtube videos between Noteworthy and Good Notes 5 I am so glad I chose Good Notes!

  • Excellent Application 5/5

    This is the best application I have purchased so far absolutely the best ... period!
  • Can’t upload pdf or ppt 2/5

    By Alisonggg Huang
    This is a good writing app, but not a good note taking one. Most of my classes have ppt or reading materials, so I have to take notes with these materials. However, I couldn’t find any of cloud storage sync function letting me to upload materials from my Dropbox or google drive. And also I can’t sync notes with those two cloud storage. It’s 2020 now, I can’t believe there’s an application without this function.
  • Great app! 4/5

    By Sams1649
    Goodnotes is not especially user-friendly, but it isn’t truly difficult to use either. I’m using it for digital planning/work/etc., and I’m enjoying it a lot! Definitely worth the purchase!
  • Great, but needs one thing 4/5

    By ld#99
    Have been using Goodnotes for over a year and love it. One request- I love to write and do journal entries. Being able to password protect my journal would be awesome. Thanks for a great app!

  • Goodnotes 5 crashing 1/5

    By Anwesha00
    The app is not consistent. It is crashing and as I scroll through the screen blink as it tries to refresh the notes.
  • One change is needed 3/5

    By aqtgamer
    This app has tons of great features. I’ve just begun digital planning and there’s a feature missing that would make this app the best.... the ability to finger tap hyperlinks while in edit mode. This one change would streamline workflow and make the planning process much more enjoyable. Right now, every time I want to click to another part of my planner, I have to tap the read only mode button (in the far right corner) and then tap the link to change locations, then tap the read-only/edit button again. Soooo much tapping when it could be much more simplified.
  • Best app ever !!!!!! 5/5

    By Gell.lly
    I love goodnotes sooo much! There are a lot of things you can do here than other note taking apps. This is a must have for all college students.
  • So, I have to make two separate purchases? 2/5

    By cookie.monster28
    I bought the goodnotes 5 app. :\ Now I realized i have to make another 8$ purchase to get it on my ipad? That’s really stupid you know? It doesn’t make sense but I’ll leave it. I’ll deal with it. Otherwise it’ll be not as worth it. I’m excited to explore this app anyways. :3 Even though, I bought, expecting to also be bought for my ipad as well as my phone to sync both files but you know, i guess I kind of got screwed out of my money. 👌🏻 Good job for that. That’s why I leave two stars. I’ll change my review once that’s taken care of or fixed or whatever.
  • Amazing 5/5

  • Awesome App! 5/5

    By A Washington Piano Teacher
    I have used this app for taking notes and for teaching others via internet meetings. I can emphasize points using colors or highlights, import text and photos to enhance presentations and organize them by subject in “notebooks.”

  • Very good app. 4/5

    By Jazidazl
    A very good app. Gave it 4 stars because the screen has frozen a few times. But I’m satisfied overall.
  • Why Does good note degrade there quality? 1/5

    By 85ghf4
    When I buy this app like 3 weeks ago the app was allowed to search definition of word and copy it to another split view page. Also, now it’s not allowed for me to combine two different documents!! What is going on good notes developer?!?!?!?!?

  • App is so far so good!! 4/5

    By Sai 1997
    App needs little improvement like opening documents on PC should switch to typing mode or text mode rather than writing mode. I did not expect the handoff feature, which is there, but still needs improvement. Also it would be better to integrate further - some of the features I expect to see are seamless integration like, attactching screenshots directly from mac with a button on ipad and also I hope that developer might even take use of apple's continuity markup feature
  • Why buy it? Apple Notes is FREE! 2/5

    By Day5154
    Good Notes 5 is would have been a great app in 2013, but in 2020 it simply isn’t. Apple Notes is an incredible app that could certainly use some tweaks, but it is still head and shoulders above Good Notes. I need an app that is first completely trustworthy. Second, it has to be very versatile. Third, low cost. And finally, it has to work seamlessly with the cloud. Apple Notes checks every box. I can’t see any reason to spend $8.00, or even $1.00 on Good Notes. I purchased it based on an “Editors Choice”. DON’T BELIEVE IT.
  • Great for nursing students 4/5

    By Dona1ynn
    I love this app. It allows me to keep my textbooks and notes all in one spot. I have it on all my devices making reviewing a breeze. Only downside is no password protection. Not only do I use this for academics but to journal... I’ll probably bump it up to 5 Stars once they add that feature.
  • horrible new update 1/5

    By Vahid dark
    its craching time by time when im using it, i have typed the whole A4 size page then suddenly application crashed and when i opened the application again all of notes were gone !!!!!!!!!!! fixed the issue ASAP thanks

    By ANsir1999
    When goodnotes loads large PDF, it often appears that the white screen cannot be loaded, while notability does not, which greatly affects user experience. Please pay attention to it officially,thanks

    This is a great app for students. It works perfect with my Apple Pencil and I am able to create an array of journals for different classes at the same time. I highly recommend this to students looking to become paperless students.
  • Bug report 3/5

    By MisZoomer
    Can’t find where to submit bugs on the Developers Website: my iPad Pro printing to my laser printer started doing a zoomed print on Print This Page in this latest version - So part of what’s visible in Print Preview doesn’t Print on the paper. App has been rock solid for 4 years, otherwise.
  • Love this app! 4/5

    By appleuserforapps
    I love how effortless this app makes editing PDFs. My only issue is that I wish I could alter text boxes from PDFs I have imported so I can make them smaller and have room to write my notes. I have to upload my PDFs to google drive to alter the text boxes and then upload that version to GoodNotes. It’s a time consuming process.
  • This is the Best note taking app everrrr 5/5

    This is such an amazing and helpful app
  • Write Notes 5/5

    By Jake Tun
    The best note app I have ever used
  • Few more features 4/5

    By Hunkoys
    App is pretty fast. If any of these suggestions would impact the performance of the app. Nevermind it. 1. First of all, please give us more color option on the tool bar. Or let us customize what’s in the tool bar. Not everyone uses the laser. Can we have options to hide items in there. 2. Shape templates. It’s difficult to make a big rectangle and a perfect circle 3. Fill. But treat them as or make them images. That way they dont erase. Or at least let the user decide if they want it erasable or not I don’t think a lot of people have a problem with the third one. But I’ll just put it there. ✌️ But overall. App works great. I can see Notability getting better. The only reason I didn’t choose that is again. The toolbar. Not a lot of flexibility. I note in color. 🌈 Just saying. You gotta up your game guys.
  • Uploading from Drive 3/5

    By brilliantlytragic
    I love what I can do with my Apple Pencil and a blank page, but I don’t understand why I can’t upload some of my Drive files (a Google Doc). I can see the file, but it’s shaded. Any guidance? Is it a setting problem?
  • Too many bugs 2/5

    By veggibird
    I want to love this app, it has so many lovely features. Unfortunately, the following key bugs ruin it for me: 1. Strikethroughs: when writing, often a line is created somewhere. This happens often no matter what palm rejection setting I use. 2. Disappearing/reappearing texts: when transitioning from a page to another, the texts sometimes disappear. After I write a few lines, they suddenly jump back. 3. The eraser sometimes does not work.. 4. Cannot drag texts across pages.
