  • ❤️GoodNotes is the BEST Grocery List ever!❤️

    By BAR112
    I have found the PERFECT grocery list app and it is GoodNotes. GoodNotes has exactly what I was looking for: ability to set up a “template” list according to department; highlight items needed throughout the week, then view on my iPhone while shopping the aisles. I can unhighlight as I put items in my cart or wait until returning home. Syncs great between my iPads and iPhone. GoodNotes is not bloated with features like most dedicated grocery list apps (I don’t need sharing, recipes, prices, barcodes, etc.); it’s so amazingly simple! And, there is only a one-time purchase fee—no subscription for GoodNotes. I can only imagine all the other projects GoodNotes would be helpful for.
  • Please give us more flexibility in settings

    By DrFord666
    Lacking: 1. Can you add a setting to move the toolbar to bottom? It’s much easier to switch pencil and eraser that way. 2. Please add slots in the color palette to hold commonly used custom colors. I don’t like half of the presets and almost always use my custom defined colors
  • It’s been good to me

    It’s my virtual pen and paper. I looked at reviews before purchasing and I by far am loving it. I’m old school I don’t care to type so being able to write everything down and transform it to text. Best thing since sliced bread. I work a lot so files that have to be updated or signed easy as 1,2,3!

    I *would* give a full 5 stars if it weren’t for one incredibly aggravating bug — I set up goodnotes to use as a faux bullet journal. I have made PDF templates to import for my day to day pages. Within the first week of using good notes, after writing down tasks I need to do i would swipe to another page in the Journal to write something else, and when I come back to the tasks page ALL OF MY TASKS ARE DELETED. GONE. Some I have *no idea* if I will be able to remember or recall that task, thus running the risk of missing important things I need to do for work. I have a sneaking suspicion that this is because of trying to sync up goodnotes with my icloud account. These issues began when I tried to use the icloud sync feature so I could look at my notes on my phone. Once the issue began I decided to unsync with icloud and just back up to my google drive account. Still had the issue. I highly doubt that the issue is with my ipad as I had just bought the new ipad. Now i’m removing the backup feature that I HOPED would be helpful in preserving my notes in hopes that nothing would randomly delete! Im just so incredibly frustrated at this point and expected more from this app. Looks like I’ll just have to go back to a tried and true paper and pen system. Pen doesn't just *magically* erase itself on paper. If any moderators have any suggestions or solutions, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
  • Love it but

    By DragonflyZen
    I love this app and how it has transformed the way I use my iPad. I wish they added another pen option as I love using hand lettering like calligraphy for the titles of many of my pages
  • I’m in love...

    By Pastureprchr
    making the change to paperless was so desperately needed, there aren’t the words to describe the disorganization, the mess, the anger at losing things that I experienced but now I can’t find enough good words to properly describe the joy with which I get my work done thanks to Goodnotes 4. This app should be at the top of every tool list given for the purpose of decluttering. Every professional organizer should recommend this app to every client - the ability to create personalized order from chaos is unlimited.

  • Suggestions

    By Nialovesss
    Wish I could open notes in split screen
  • Absolutely phenomenal

    By ChuckKarma
    I can’t believe how great this app is it’s my absolute favorite out of hundreds that I’ve downloaded over the years. The only suggestion that I could make is to clear we label the magnification box that allows you to write line by line at the bottom. That by far is the absolute best feature on the app and makes it perfect for me. Thanks.
