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.

Lagging Issues

I love this app for taking notes in class with my iPad and Apple Pencil, and I am so happy that it works so well. One thing that bothers me though is that when I try to draw doodles on my pages, there are lagging issues and pixelation that occur more and more frequently as I layer colors and use the HTML color code imput to enter colors. The app eventually corrects my drawings but it take a while. It needs a tool to actually find custom colors, not just a larger selection of colors under the custom tab. If the lagging and pixelation are fixed, I will be a much happier customer!

Good app but crashes a lot

I agree with the reviews but this app crashes a lot when I copy a PDF from my email.

Best App, Worst Sync ever. Man it's bad! SeeYa

New iPad Pro, new ipencil Reviews for GoodNotes interface solid so bought it. It's not syncing. Sits and thinks about it. Did all the tricks they suggest. It's a joke. Works about 10% of time. I'm back on the market for another app because of this. They got to 5 yard one and fumbled big time. Forgot about fundamentals. So frustrating.
