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.

Customer Reviews

Excellent note taking app

GoodNotes is an excellent note taking app with many unique features. Handwriting search is a nice feature not found in most iPad note taking apps. Paper templates are among the best and most flexible of apps I've seen.

My least favorite part of GoodNotes is the lack of flow from page to page. To write at the bottom of the page requires an uncomfortable writing on the bottom edge of the screen. GoodNotes' competitors have a continuous scroll model that is much better. Writing at the bottom of a page can be done in the middle of an iPad screen. New pages are added by simply writing below the page line.

My hope is that a new version of GoodNotes will provide a continuous scroll option.

iCloud Sync is Horrible

I love this app, but the iCloud sync is absolutely terrible. I literally have two notebooks that have been attempting to upload from my iPad since last week. I lose a lot of time every week waiting for the sync because I rely on being able to edit between my MacBook and my iPad.

I'm currently using this app for my Pre-Calculus notes and the drawing tool is really great. The app is really nice with the exception of it's inability to sync so I may switch to notability next semester.

App is great - Needs In-App Sharing

This app works AMAZING. I use this for my business and it has really been huge in my push to go paperless as I can import almost any document or picture and fill it out or mark it up. I would love to roll this out to all my locations and managers however without in-app sharing capabilities, it's a little troublesome to export to a cloud service then have someone import, so on and so forth. Everyone I've had download this app has loved it.
