It can also backup your data to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive automatically. ## GoodNotes is Also a Digital Whiteboard ## Your audience will not see the user interface — just the content — and you can choose which part of the page to show them.

  • Love everything about it EXCEPT...

    By Supermagnetman
    I can’t figure out how to make it store all documents on my iPad without worrying about the “cloud”. The cloud sounds like a wonderful feature BUT if you are an ATT hostage you cannot count on service in lots and lots of places. So when I sit down at church and pull up the app - I expect the files to be there but this morning nothing showed up and I bought ver. 5 thinking that may help but that was no help at all - it said there were no files. Finally when I got home it immediately found the files. It is not every useful if you can only use it sitting in your house. I have used it for many years and love taking notes on it and this must be something related to a downgrade feature that must have happened a while back and I just installed recently.
  • Easiest note taking app

    By Ballistic Bacon
    Best note taking app I have tried. Controls are intuitive and the auto switch eraser (probably describing it wrong) is my favorite part. To make it 5 stars: Dark mode please
  • Are you kidding me?

    By brianohh
    This is not even a free app. Why do I have to deal with pop up add about good notes 5 EVERY SINGLE TIME I open the app?? It’s starting to annoy the nuts out of me. STOP THIS PLEASE.
  • Constant harassment

    By Nerovingian
    Please stop bothering me to upgrade every time I open the app. I paid for the app and want to use it. But the annoying ad drives me nuts and makes me want to use a different app.
  • Ads ads ads

    I love this app; it was worth my money. However, I’m so over the fact that an ad for an upgrade pops up every. single. time. I open this app. Get rid of the ads please!

  • So much better than V5

    By blasler
    This older V4 version is so much better than the V5 upgrade (as of May 2019): * The insertion point works in tall text boxes instead of scrolling offscreen * Named bookmarks allow one to navigate large books * Text insertion is so smooth: click (+) and start typing; no fumbling with the insertion point * Text color and style selection is cruder, but obvious * V4 has the lasso selection (ok, v5 has that too!) * V4 backs up to more places * V4 can start its own HTTP endpoint to share documents to the local network * The 'send to GoodNotes 4' imports V5 with directories converted into Categories I'll keep v5 around and check out its evolution, but for now I recommend V4 for getting stuff done.
  • No, I don’t want to upgrade. STOP asking.

    By Denim1917
    Literally every time I open this app it asks me to upgrade to the newer version for a fee. I bought the older version on purpose, based on the reviews. I paid $8 for it (same price as the new version). Getting asked to pay more to upgrade every time I open the app is maddening, and I can’t figure out how to make it stop, despite searching for an solution. D:<
