## 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 4.12.8
Bug fixes and minor improvements.
One of the best apps on my iPad. I use it everyday. Please add a color wheel (instead of preset color grid) in custom pen color setting. I thought I used to have it, but it's gone now after the update. Thank you.
I wish I could give this app 4.5 stars, as it is a much better note taking app than others I have used, including Notability.
Things I like:
smaller PDF file sizes than Notability (a big deal to me as some of the file sizes can quickly get enormous and render a note almost useless).
The option to not have to erase an entire stroke when using the erase tool.
Many options for customizability.
Works well with apple pencil.
Things that could be better:
PDF files sizes could always be smaller.
Completely different buttons in the toolbar for an eraser that will erase and entire stroke, and one that erases part of a stroke. I'm constantly having to switch back and forth and this gets annoying.
A continuous scroll option instead of having to swipe left and right for different pages.
I have an option set where swiping with my fingers moves the page and moving my apple pencil draws, but when the eraser is selected, swiping with my fingers erases, instead of moving the page. 😒
Overall, with the money. The best note taking app I've found.
