The best

I’ve had Good notes since the start and have tried other apps. Don’t bother, it’s worth the money for all of its features. I also love that it’s on my Iphone and my Mac now.

I Genuinely Enjoy The App

I initially downloaded this app after I saw several videos on social media explaining GoodNotes 5 is a necessity for all iPad users; I would have to agree after only a few days of using the app. Options are endless when it comes to templates. The app is very user-friendly and accessing features is easy. Sharing files, importing and saving is easy to do from within the app. Overall, I would recommend this app to anyone practicing organization skills, note-taking & working towards environment-friendly actions (digital notes help save our trees!) Also perfect for students, teachers, etc.

Please add Engineering Paper Style!

I love this app, it has made my note taking and organization of my notes so much easier! The only thing I wish they had was engineering paper templates. Hopefully in a future update they will add it.

Ap is terrible.

This ap is so hard to use. Not worth the money to buy.

It would be great if the user could make a drop down menus for the outlines to keep them organised. Aside from that, it is amazing!

Everything I wanted and more!

I’ve worked with several free apps for taking notes and they all were SO AWFUL. Giving up hope, I came across this app which was recommended to me. It’s EXACTLY WHAT I WAS MISSING. They allow you to take notes and then SEARCH those notes for words mentioned. Custom notebooks, custom pages, and when you’re writing, it doesn’t notice when your hand touches the page. I’ve never paid for an app before, but now I see why I should always pay for them!

Good, for Teachers and Students

I can't say enough good things about this app. One drawback is how files import into a project. Spacing can sometimes get changed with word documents, which is easily overlooked because of features like excellent portability between devices and an intuitive user interface.

Best. Note. App. EVER!

I personally was having a hard time finding a notes app on my iPad. Most were paid for monthly (which I am not willing to do) or just don't work very well. This app is different. It's a small, one-time fee, and the app itself works extraordinarily good. I use it for all my classes. It's easy to make straight lines and shapes, easy to insert photos, it has customizable journal covers, it has customizable pages, it's just perfect! HIGHLY recommend! :)
