This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
GoodNotes lets you take beautiful handwritten notes and annotate PDF documents. The handwritten notes are searchable and are created using a pioneering vector ink engine. Thanks to iCloud sync, your documents in GoodNotes will synchronize between your iPad and iPhone automatically.
## Make Your Handwritten Notes Last Forever ##
GoodNotes features a state-of-the-art digital ink technology that will look great even with future super-high resolution displays.
## OCR: Search Handwritten Notes ##
Just type in the search box what you're looking for and then tap Search.
## Better Than Paper Notebooks ##
Type with the keyboard, insert images, or draw perfect shapes easily; mix between any kind of papers or even insert PDF docs inside a notebook; rearrange or delete pages as you like. It is very flexible.
## Annotate PDF Documents; Fill and Sign Forms ##
Great for saving time, paper, and the environment. Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files are supported too.
## Large Collection of Beautiful Covers and Papers ##
Each template is carefully designed in vector format. There are lined papers, graph papers, music papers, and lots of notebook covers to choose from. Add your own template with an image or a PDF file.
## GoodNotes Does Not Slow You Down ##
Thanks to the powerful zoom window feature, you can write quickly with your fingers or with a stylus in a large area, and your handwriting will be shrunk automatically.
## Just Write Them Down and Don’t Worry ##
You can correct any mistake any time and it won’t become messy. The lasso tool will let you move things around or even resize them.
## Protect Your Valuable Data ##
GoodNotes features a trash function to protect from accidental deletion. It can also backup your data to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or SkyDrive 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. Many teachers and lecturers are already using GoodNotes to teach.

What's New in Version 4.12.10
GoodNotes is now supported on the iPhone X.
I’ve used this app for over a year for work. I honestly don’t think there’s anything else out there as good for note taking. I’ve never received any issues with the app and it has been incredibly reliable. The synchronisation between iPhone and iPad is great. If I’ve found a web page or some research on my iPhone I find myself saving it as a PDF and storing it into a folder into GoodNotes so that I can read it and highlight things on my iPad during work hours. So it’s also become my research library! Lots of different uses and it’s reassuring that everything automatically gets backed up. Well worth the investment if you’re not a fan of pen and paper.
Broken after update and then quickly repaired
I had had to downgrade my rating for this app after the latest (but one) update, as the zoom window was no longer working properly and this is essential for me. I’m happy to report that two days later the problem has been fixed and I’m happy to upgrade the rating back to what the app deserves. We Ll make mistakes, but could I humbly suggest more testing before releases.
I’ve used this app since September and I couldn’t be happier. Its a brilliant app and I fully recommend it. The only improvement i’d suggest is that there is needs to be an option to change the background colour of the notebooks, especially for people with dyslexia who work better with different colour backgrounds.
