Good Note should have "password"

Everything is good for me,but I recommend this app should have the password because have some data don't want anyone to read ex. diary or private data.

My best friend

This app has held my hand for 5 months now. I write EVERYTHING on this APP, I keep telling everyone how organized I’ve been lately with GoodNotes. The only thing I wish it did is math calculations, but other than that I’m very happy. I like the options it has for everything and how easy and beautiful my notes for school can be 🥰

Its good

I lost all my college notes when I upgraded my ipad but it works great as a notetaking app. Backup isnt auto, from what i could tell. Thankfully i dont need them anymore, but kind of a shame

Get procreate

You could make notes ones hundred times better on procreate. The user interface is broken and stops working when images and notes are to close together. Completely stops letting you move anything. You can’t draw directly on an image. It’s pretty much Ed layered over. Get procreate don’t waste your money like I did. 100% regret

This app is amazing, I have been using it since forever to take notes from class and using it for my digital planner. This app is really good and I recommend it for everybody, however the new update makes the hyper links a little bit laggy, and I was wondering is you guys can make a new update that fixes that, thanks.

I really enjoy GoodNotes

I do not understand why GoodNotes does not add a method for audio notes in the app. Your customers have been asking to record audio while taking notes in GoodNotes since 2014. There are some on the Internet accusing GoodNotes of lying when they promised to add it. In January 2019, on Twitter @GoodNotesApp replied to @HouseMeisterMd saying, "Audio recording is one of the top priorities for early 2019." It is now 6/5/2020 and this high priority feature has not been added. There are 7,153 votes on the GoodNotes Feedback page. All the reviewers I have seen mention at length that Notability offers this feature but GoodNotes does not. When I first bought GoodNotes around 2015 I figured it would be added soon. There were at that time enough value added features that swayed me to go with GoodNotes, all the while believing GoodNotes would add this obviously necessary feature. At the time I was not a student. Today I am still not a student but I am in many meetings. I would really appreciate this feature. Why does GoodNotes not add this feature? Can someone please explain the reason? Today, I almost decided to go to Notability. My personal year begins on July 1 when I make new folders for the upcoming year. For now I decided to take this course of action instead. We'll see what happens. GoodNotes, please add this feature.
